Hollywood Attorneys use Daubert Standard to Dismiss Case Before Trial

Posted in Verdicts and Settlements on August 4, 2022

Noelia Vaccaro, an associate in the firm’s first party property & coverage practice, and appellate associate, Sam Spinner, were recently successful in a first-party property Tropical Storm Gordon claim. The Defense filed a Daubert motion to strike the plaintiff’s expert. The court agreed that the plaintiff’s expert testimony did not meet the Daubert standard as the methodology was conclusory. As a result of the Court granting defendant’s Daubert motion, the plaintiffs dismissed the action on the eve of trial.
