ABSTRACT
The article discusses the England and Wales Court of Appeals case of R v. T, wherein the Court criticized the lack of computation and likelihood table references in an expert testimony for a forensic lab analysis of footwear prints. In this case, Ryder from the Forensic Science Service Ltd. (FSS) did not emphasize the issue of transparency. The Court upheld that Bayesian approach and likelihood ratios to frame opinions before a jury were vaguely placed which were contradictory to open justice.
