In Michael Mordenti too

State versus Mordenti, in Florida: 'It's my opinion that all of
those bullets came from the same box of ammunition.' Is that
supported by the science?" Kroft asks.

"The science never supported such a statement," Adams replies.

"But this was the testimony that was given by people in the lab for
30 years," Kroft points out.

"You know, I'm sure as you have found that that is the case in
some cases. But the science does not support that," Adams says.
"This kind of testimony was misleading and inappropriate in
criminal trials."

"Did you order a review on all the cases in which this testimony
had been given?" Kroft asks.
