State ex rel. Wiseman v. Henning
In State ex rel. Wiseman v. Henning, 212 W.Va. 128, 569 S.E.2d 204 (2002) (per curiam), the testimony of expert witness Dr. Hussein was contested. Dr. Hussein, an expert in cancer research and treatment, proposed to testify to the novel theory that the impact from a physical trauma could cause multiple myeloma cancer at the site of impact.
In Wiseman, the Court prohibited the circuit court from categorically excluding testimony from a well-credentialed medical expert on a novel theory.
