US Federal Court Affirms Validity of 3D Laser Scanning Evidence

United States Magistrate Judge Gregory Wormuth, presiding over the U.S District Court For The District Of New Mexico, issued an order on Sept. 30, 2013, granting a Daubert motion to affirmatively admit Leica Geosystems ScanStation evidence and related expert testimony in the case of Stephan Cordova v. City of Albuquerque, et al.

In an Albuquerque civil hearing a federal court ruled that 3D laser scanning data was admissible evidence. The judge noted that the plaintiff’s attorneys did not object to the scientific and technical validity of the 3D laser evidence or dispute whether the defendants had laid a proper scientific and technical foundation for the admissibility of this evidence.
