ABSTRACT

At a recent session of the Minnesota State Medical Society, Dr. B. J. Merrill, of Stillwater, chairman of the Section on Medical Jurisprudence, directed his arrows at the prevailing abuses of the so-called medical expert. He submitted the subjoined bill for the consideration of the Society, and requested that formal action be taken looking to the correction of prevailing abuses by some form of conservative legislation.

A BILL TO PROVIDE FOR THE APPOINTMENT AND PAYMENT OF EXPERTS. 

Be it enacted by the Legislature of the State of Minnesota:  Section 1. In all cases pending in the courts of this State, civil and criminal, before or at the time of the trial of said cases, the Judge of said court, when it is made to appear to him that the appointment of experts upon medical, scientific or mechanical questions is desirable, may appoint such experts to examine into the subject matter
