HPTY Wins Daubert Motion to Exclude Junk Science Causation Opinion in Baton Rouge Mesothelioma Case

August 21, 2012

Following three and a half days of testimony, a Baton Rouge trial court granted HPTY’s Daubert motion precluding Dr. Eugene Mark from testifying that that “each ‘special exposure’ to asbestos constitutes a significant contributing factor” and further prohibited Dr. Mark “from giving his definition of special exposure.”  The win came after nearly five years of litigation and appeals following the initial grant of summary judgment to HPTY’s client based on the exclusion of Dr. Mark’s opinions.  Ed Slaughter cross-examined Dr. Mark regarding his opinions at the hearing and was assisted by Barret Marshall.
