University of Baltimore Law Review



This comment deals with spectrographic analysis and the conflict between courts' criteria for admissibility, using either the general-acceptance-of-the-scientific-community test or the accuracy-and-reliability test. The conclusion drawn is that the general-acceptance test should be coupled with judicial notice to avert the undesirable situation of having a lay jury making technical scientific judgments.
