Waney Squier, the neuropathologist got ‘delisted’ on a complaint from the coppers about lying ( aka ‘misleading’) the court.
Shirley McKie, a SPA fingerprint expert, got charged for ‘perjury’ (again in court) by the coppers, tried for perjury , acquitted, twice sued for damages , reinstated by a court and then last week locked out by her own police agency.
Plus here’s something about the colleague (male) who accused the SPA of purposely distorting fingerprint evidence used against her. He got canned too.
Somewhere in the McKie dust-up, a Scot high court judge opined that experts should be immune from prosecution for their courtroom testimony. I think he was pondering the chilling effect of prosecutors going after experts they don’t like (aka malicious prosecution).
Here is a bunch of Scot cases talking about immunity for experts during trials.
