Oldwage: My lady it is one thing to suggests that Dr. Carla doesn't agree that it is borderline.
Oldwage: My lady, Mr. Nel should indicate whether he will be calling this witness.
Nel: My lady, I do not think that I have to inform Mr. Oldwage just yet.
Oldwage: All we want to know is, is that witness going to be called.
Nel: My lady, I will withdrew that question and put it in another way.
Nel: If Dr. Carla does testify that he did not test overly high.
WD: If that is the case, then I will seek my other professional colleagues advise. I think she has had many more years experience than me.
Nel: You see, you indicated that at page 2839, my lady.
Nel: "is at the borderline if it had been 71 and not 70" You don't even know the test?
WD: My lady the test is clearly defined in the preamble.
Nel: But you don't know what the findings are.
WD: My lady, it is stated quote clearly there.
Nel: Even with 71, it would have constituted a finding of what?
WD: Of ARD, my lady, the question I have is "is that correct or not"?
Nel: Firstly as an expert witness you must know that you are not entitled to ask questions but to answer. Are you aware?
WD: My lady, I have done science in this area.
Nel: I am going to ask you, if I argue the following, nowhere in the findings does it say 71 would have indicated a finding?
WD: Sorry, my lady I am looking.
WD: I am referring to this paragraph, page 15. Now, my lady, here on page 14, it says "Results of the PI", scores are viewed and indicated in bold and the ARD is 70
WD: This indicates that although that are high, they do not indicate a disorder.
WD: I mentioned if the score was 71, there would be a finding.
Nel: One does not need to be a genius, but one needs to be a psychologist.
Nel: Please deal with the question.
WD: 71 does not exist in this report.
Nel: You do know that the Health Professional Act, Act 56 of 1964.
Judge: You don't have copies?
Judge: You see it would have been so lovely if you had made copies for each and every person.
Nel: My lady, I just wanted to know if the Professor was aware.
Nel: If you can do it now.
Nel: I do not have it here.
WD: My lady in clinical medicine there is usually a three stages.
Judge: If you could be make it available to Mr. Oldwage.
Nel: Page 15, where, not only relied on the tests scores but on clinical findings and collateral information. Do you agree with that?
Nel: Even in the mind of Dr. Scholtz the 70 was not significant, do you agree?
WD: It does place it high. Yes, he states further that OP does not suffer from a clinical disorder.
Nel: Let's go to page 14. Significant scores are indicated in bold, 70 is not significant. Do you see that?
