Atlantic Legal Foundation is the nation’s preeminent public interest law firm advocating for the admissibility of sound medical and expert testimony in toxic tort, product liability and other litigation. ALF fights the admissibility of “junk” science and fosters the use of sound science principles in judicial and regulatory proceedings. Our amicus briefs on behalf of several Nobel Laureates and numerous other prominent scientists were cited and relied on by the majority in the landmark Daubert trilogy of U.S. Supreme Court cases.
