Brief filed: 03/21/2016
State of Ohio v. Wogenstahl
Supreme Court of Ohio; Case No. 2016-0423
Appeal taken from the Hamilton County Court of Appeals, First Appellate District, C.A. Case No. C-140683.
The terms of the microscopic hair comparison analysis (MHCA) review firmly establish the parameters of microscopic hair comparison. Testimony that exceeds those limits is false and erroneous testimony. The terms of the MHCA established the limits of the "science" of microscopic hair comparison for the first time. Juries are overly confident in subjective "sciences" such as microscopic hair comparison. The lower court improperly analyzed the significance of the MHCA review.
