Last year, I had a little back-and-forth with a group called the American College of Forensic Examiners. They’re one of the groups Dr. Steven Hayne has relied upon when he misleadingly testifies in court that he is “board-certified” in forensic pathology. They objected to my characterization of them as lacking credibility in the forensics community, though that’s certainly the case in the field by forensic pathology. They’ve been described by many forensic pathologists as a “certification mill.”
Here’s a story about how that organization’s certification of a fraudulent psychiatrist affected a child custody case.
