On April 7, 2017, Plaintiff filed a letter seeking a confere nce to address (1) whether Defendant's expert should be permitted to testify; (2) whether Plaintiff's proposed expert should be permitted to testify; (3) whether Plaintiff sufficiently pled a New York common law trademark infring ement claim; (4) and if not sufficiently pled, whether Plaintiff could be granted leave to amend the pleadings; and (5) whether punitive damages may be asserted for Plaintiff's trademark infringement claim. Doc. 173. The parties also requ ested that the Court determine whether Plaintiff was the owner of the trademarks, and therefore had standing to pursue the trademark infringement claim under the Lanham Act. For the reasons stated on the record at the April 20, 2017 conferenc e, the Court orders the following: Plaintiff's request to exclude Defendant's expert's testimony is DENIED. Defendant's expert is permitted to testify on the issue of damages, including on the value of the trademarks a t issue as registered and not registered and Plaintiff's purported damages.
