I think the issue with E is that the passage seems to be against the way judges deploy research, not with how lawyers do so. This last paragraph actually directly supports D. It tells us that judges are fully capable of minimizing inferential error in their jury instructions, but they are simply really bad at it. From this we can infer that if we trained them on how to give better jury instructions, they would be better at minimizing inferential error.
