Lifsey et al v. United States of America
ORDER and REASONS granting in part and denying in part 23 Motion to Exclude Expert Testimony from Jason Box, as stated within document. Signed by Chief Judge Kurt D. Engelhardt on 7/12/2017. (NEF: MAG-3) (cbs)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF LOUISIANA
ALEXIS LIFSEY AND
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
ORDER AND REASONS
Presently before the Court is Defendant's motion seeking to exclude expert testimony from
Jason Box.. Having carefully reviewed the parties' submissions, applicable law, and the record in
this matter, IT IS ORDERED that Defendant's motion (Rec. Doc. 23) is GRANTED IN PART
and DENIED IN PART. Specifically, assuming an adequate foundation for such testimony is
established, Mr. Box may testify regarding Plaintiff's ability to play tennis successfully at Millsaps
College and other comparable Division III colleges. The same is true regarding any accompanying
scholarship or other benefits for which she would have received or been eligible.
On the instant showing made, however, it is not apparent to the Court that Mr. Box is
qualified to offer comparable testimony relative to colleges in other divisions. Accordingly, unless
otherwise ordered, such testimony will not be permitted.
New Orleans, Louisiana, this 12th day of July 2017.
KURT D. ENGELHARDT
