The Florida Supreme Court will hear oral arguments September 1 to decide which standard the state’s courts will use for expert testimony, according to an article in the Florida Record. The legislature approved the Daubert standard in 2013, but the Florida Bar Board of Governors recommends going back to the Frye standard. Frye is less strict than Daubert in terms of what can be considered expert testimony.
