Abstract

Berkowitz et al. (2020) attribute to us the claim that “confidence trumps all,” and the few out-of-context quotations they selected can certainly be used to create that false impression. However, it is easily disproved, and we do so here. The notion that “confidence trumps all” is the mistake that the jurors made in the DNA exoneration cases, not a position that we have ever advocated.
