I went to a seminar Fri by ASCE on Forensic engineering at UC Irvine where it was mentioned by the panel of lawyers that in the San Diego area courts are putting a cap on expert wittness hourly rates. They mentioned about $300/hour as a maximum. While this is significantly more than i have ever charged hourly, the pricipal of courts ( run by judges who are lawyers ) setting our rates seems unfair. On the other hand, i don't see why anyone would charge significantly less now if this is the case. If anyone out there has personal experience of this i would appreciate hearing about it. Thanks in advance. Tom Harris , SE Thousand Oaks, CA
