Frye test

Definition

Test for the admissibility of expert testimony which finds expert testimony admissible if the scientific method on which the evidence was based was generally accepted in the relevant scientific community. It has been replaced under federal and in most states by the Daubert test based on the Supreme Court’s opinion in Daubert v. Merrell Dow Pharmaceuticals, Inc., 509 U.S. 579 (1993).
