Defense Seeks To Bar Portier Testimony
As expected, defense lawyers have asked the DC court to not allow Christopher Portier to be an expert witness in this case.
In a filing yesterday, the team representing the cell phone industry, argued that, “[A]llowing a new expert four months before the long-planned Daubert hearing would disrupt the existing schedule and unfairly prejudice Defendants.”
Portier was retained by the plaintiff attorneys in March 15, 2015 with the payment of a $5,000 retainer. It is not clear why his report was filed last month, close to six years later.
No word on when the judge may rule on Portier’s participation.
