The Veritas Center

Welcome to The Veritas Center! The mission of The Veritas Center is to facilitate the implementation of Paired PDD Testing (the Marin Protocol) as a weapon against perjury in all types of litigation.

If you are involved in a "He Said / She Said" court proceeding, where the outcome depends on who the judge or jury believes, The Veritas Center can help the truth prevail. If you deserve to win your case, it's our mission to help you win it.

Paired PDD Testing
is a new approach to taking and using polygraph results. It is the honest litigant's ally. By testing both opposing witnesses about disputed facts, and applying a straightforward mathematical principle to the results, it enables high confidence in the conclusions drawn. Indeed, the confidence level is at least equal to such staple forensic evidence as hair and fiber analysis, comparative handwriting analysis, etc., and much higher than psychological evidence as to mental states and competence.

If your opponent has used or plans to use perjured testimony against you, Paired PDD Testing can be the key to winning your case. This website will guide you through what you need to know and do. Find the type of proceeding in the left navigation, then click on your role in the sub-menu.

What The Veritas Center Does:


The Center first confirms with the requesting Court or attorney that the disputed fact or facts are appropriate for polygraph examination. It then randomly selects professionals from its roster of certified polygraphists and assigns the examinations to them.

Co-ordinates: The Center co-ordinates the mechanics of the Paired PDD Testing process. It calculates the costs to the challenged party for its witness's travel, hotel, ground transportation and meals, and invoices the challenging party's attorney for an amount sufficient to cover those costs plus the polygraphists' fees. Upon receipt of the funds, it arranges appointments for the examinations that are mutually convenient for the witnesses and their assigned polygraphists, and transmits the expense money to the challenged party's attorney. Upon receipt of charts, videotape, and polygraphist's report, it remits the polygraphist's examination fee.

Informs: The Center keeps the court and the parties' attorneys informed as the process proceeds, and of stalling or bad faith by either party. When the examinations have been completed, it notifies the Court and both parties of all results.

Maintains and Forwards Records: The Center enters and maintains records of all results, including the charts and the original beginning-to-end videotapes of the examinations. It produces and provides copies of the charts and tapes to the court, and to the parties' attorneys upon payment of a modest fee.

Processes Reviews: Any party may request that either or both examinations undergo review. The party requesting a review must pay for it. When the review fees are received, the center creates copies of the examination's charts and videotapes, and forwards them to two reviewers selected randomly from the roster of certified professionals.

Certifies: The Center certifies qualified examiners, in accordance with ASTM Standard E2324-04 (The Marin Protocol) Examiners applying for certification must submit an end-to- end videotape of an examination showing their proficient adherence to a validated methodology, and the interpretable chart produced by that examination. They must then blind- score 100 sets of charts generated in real-world examinations in cases where the truth is now known, fifty of which are from examinations where the subject was deceptive and the rest from examinations where the subject was non-deceptive. The test sets are selected from a collection of more than 400 sets. The applicant is certified if and only if he declares a conclusive result for at least 80 per cent of each group of fifty, and at least 86 of his conclusive results for each group are correct.

Testifies: Examiners are available to review their certification and other qualifications in court, and to support and explain their findings. Other experts are available to testify to the validity of the mathematics underlying Paired PDD Testing, and the mechanics employed by the Center.

Educates: The Center is committed to spreading the word about paired PDD testing to judges, attorneys, and the public. We welcome every opportunity to participate in professional conferences nd meetings, and to appear as guests on radio and TV.

Researches: The Center is vitally interested in new methods and equipment, and in validating (or refuting) claims made for them. In particular, it is involved with efforts to validate and quantify Guilty Knowledge Testing (GKT) and to develop and prove question-sequence protocols that would broaden its area of reliable application.
