You're Still Killing Me: How to Prevent Your Expert Witness from Destroying Your Patent Case at Trial
The direct and cross-examination of an expert at trial is the culmination of a long series of events. These events begin with the identification of an expert pursuant to Rule 26 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, and continue with the expert report, rebuttal report and expert deposition. Any shortcomings in the expert's qualifications or analyses, or in the party's theories or disclosures, subject the expert and his or her testimony to motions in limine, Daubert motions and other evidentiary motions that can severely limit the scope of the expert testimony and, in some cases, lead to exclusion of the witness. This session will include a demonstration of the direct and cross-examination of an expert, together with a discussion of the pretrial activities that determined what the expert was ultimately permitted to testify to at trial.
