On October 1, 2018, the Rules of Evidence Advisory Committee filed a Report on Eyewitness Identification which examines the reliability and fallibility of eyewitness-identifications. The report focuses on identification procedures, the standards for admitting identification evidence, the use of eyewitness-identification experts, jury instructions, and the standards of review applied by appellate courts.  A December 17, 2018 order, ADM-10-8047, accepts the committee’s recommendation for judicial officers to be trained on the science of eyewitness identification and calls for the widest possible public dissemination of the committee’s research.  Click here to read the report.
