Craig Liljestrand CDLB Column: Expert Testimony Properly Excluded in Asbestos Case

September 26, 2017

Craig Liljestrand—a Chicago-based partner in the Product Liability practice area at Hinshaw & Culbertson LLP—has published a new Chicago Daily Law Bulletin column titled "Expert's theories deemed shades of the same color, properly excluded." The article examines the Seventh Circuit decision in Krik v. Exxon Mobil Corp., et al., No. 15-3112, 2017 U.S. App. LEXIS 16795 (7th Cir. 2017) which held that the "cumulative exposure" theory is the same as the "each and every exposure" theory. Liljestrand analyzes the decision and the Seventh Circuit's application of Federal Rule of Evidence 702 and Daubert v. Merrell Dow Pharmaceuticals Inc., which ultimately lead them to "properly exclude" an expert testimony.
