In a patent infringement suit, the defendant asked the judge to compel the production of all documents that it subpoenaed from the plaintiff’s damages expert witness, and that such production be made at least four days prior to submission of Defendant‘s rebuttal damages report. Defendant also sought an order that the expert appear for two full day depositions. 

The importance of expert testimony at a trial cannot be overstated, as it oftentimes provides the edge one needs to win a scientifically complex case. The year 2018, in particular, saw some substantial verdict awards, which were earned in no small part due to expert testimony.

Electrical “stun guns” are increasingly sold both for self-defense and as a means for law enforcement officials to incapacitate violent individuals without using lethal force. The device is commonly known as a taser, since many popular models were manufactured and sold by TASER International (now Axon). However, the legal issues in these cases and the experts that may be required to address them remain similar regardless of which manufacturer produced the device.

Imagine an illegal hacking incident has taken place in a modern connected vehicle. We know something has happened, but we don’t know who, exactly what, how or why. We need to know these things for two reasons; firstly, to catch the bad guy, but secondly to learn how they did it, so we can (hopefully) fix the mistake in other vehicles. Enter forensics.

When construction disputes tied to technical issues, as most are, devolve into an adversarial resolution process, expensive opposing technical experts, are almost always involved. Those familiar with these cases have experienced this world of “dueling” experts, with diametrically opposed opinions. Testifying experts are one of the most expensive elements of the transactional costs when litigation or arbitration is used to resolve these disputes.  There may be a better, more cost effective approach.
