Date Filed#Document Text
April 19, 2010 17 Opinion or Order of the Court RULING granting in part and denying in part 9 MOTION for Summary Judgment and Motion to Exclude the Expert Opinion Testimony of Plaintiffs' Expert Ted Kaplon. Because the Court finds Citizens' expert witness, Ted Kaplon, sufficiently reli able, to the extent that GE's motion seeks to exclude Kaplon's testimony, the motion is DENIED. Additionally, because Citizens have provided sufficient circumstantial evidence to invoke res ipsa loquitur, the Court DENIES GE's motion f or summary judgment on the LPLA construction/composition claim. However, because Citizens do not raise a genuine issue of material fact regarding design defect and inadequate warning, the Court GRANTS summary judgment on these claims. Signed by Judge James J. Brady on 4/19/10. (BP, )
