Weight-of-the-Evidence Standard Used by Plaintiff’s Experts Found to Satisfy Daubert Requirements United States District Court, N.D. Ohio, Eastern Division. September 5, 2018
OHIO — Defendant Honeywell International filed Motions in limine to Preclude the plaintiff’s Experts Dr. Murray Finkelstein and Dr. Carlos Bedrossian and dismiss the plaintiff’s claims, or, in the alternative, its request for evidentiary hearing. The plaintiffs filed oppositions.
The court determined that both doctors utilized the weight-of-the-evidence standard in formulating their opinions of the case in line with the prescriptions under Daubert. Additionally, Dr. Finkelstein’s methodology had previously been scrutinized at a Daubert hearing in another jurisdiction and was upheld as valid and admissible.The court opined that the questions raised by defendants “do not undermine the admissibility of Dr. Finkelstein’s testimony, but are better suited to addressing the credibility of his conclusions and the information he relied on.
The court denied both Motions in Limine.
