Step 1 of 5: Event Information

Motions in Limine and the New Role of Trial Court as the "Gatekeeper" for Expert Testimony

6:00 PM - 7:30 PM
Wendel Rosen Black & Dean LLP
1111 Broadway
19th Floor
Oakland CA, 94612
Registration Closes:
Join acclaimed panelists Hon. Robert Freedman, Alameda County Superior Court Judge, and Oakland-based trial lawyers Kathryn Burkett Dickson and Greg Brown, and gain insights regarding what motions in limine should be, and those that should not be, made during the course of a trial. Discover the likely impact of the Supreme Court's recent decision in Sargon v. University of Southern California requiring trial judges to act as a "gatekeeper" and evaluate whether a proffered expert's methodology and conclusions are sufficiently reliable and therefore can be presented to the jury.

This is a panel of three top-flight individuals with tons of collective experience and insights to share that no trial lawyer will want to miss!
