California, United States of America


The following excerpt is from People v. Russell, 2d. Crim. No. B262474 (Cal. App. 2017):

a technique, which has gained general acceptance, as applied to particular set of circumstances." (People v. Henderson (2003) 107 Cal.App.4th 769, 786 (Henderson).) The inquiry thus "is not whether the procedure is generally accepted within the scientific community, but whether the approved procedure was followed correctly in this instance." (Ibid.)
