  United States v. Tranowski - 7th Circuit

Decided: 8/31/1981

The critical question is whether the district judge abused his discretion in admitting Ciupik's expert testimony, which was based on calculations made from a photograph originally used by defendant in support of his allegedly perjurious alibi testimony and a chart marking the sun's path as viewed from Chicago on the twenty-second day of each month. ... There is no question 755*755 that Ciupik was qualified as an expert in astronomy by knowledge, skill, experience and education and, as such, was eligible to express an opinion on the subject which was "beyond the ken of the ordinary layman."
