Hey Chris,

To be more blunt, does he even know what the CAFC is?  A sentence you 
snipped from his post ("Supposedly expert witnesses tell them these 
things, but they have no way of knowing if an expert witness is 
expert, or if the expert witness is telling the truth.") suggests 
rather strongly that he doesn't.
