Some of the country's top judges are spending this week at Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory with some of the country's top scientists to bone up on the science behind some of the complex issues they encounter in the courtroom.
The judges, mostly from Maryland and Ohio, got a crash course in nanotechnology, synthetic biology and environmental biotechnology - all subjects they may have to tangle with in highly technical cases.
"Judges are empowered to do better, understand the issues better and guide the process better," said Rufus King III, Chief Judge of the Superior court of the District of Columbia. "Judges need to be gatekeepers to keep junk science out of the courtroom."
