Pierce d/b/a Pierce Designs,
Case No. 14-cv-461-SM
Opinion No. 2017 DNH 190
Freed Designs, Inc.,
O R D E R
Defendant’s motion to strike the declaration of J.B. Wood
(document no. 89) is denied, but without prejudice to
interposing an appropriate objection at trial.
Federal Rule of Evidence 702 permits both opinion and
useful non-opinion testimony based upon specialized knowledge,
skill, experience, training or education.
The record discloses
that Mr. Wood is particularly well-qualified to provide both
opinion and useful non-opinion evidence in the pertinent field
of gunsmithing and firearms design and function based upon his
specialized knowledge, extended training, extensive experience,
skill, and education.
It also seems self-evident that Mr. Wood
is a person of at least ordinary skill in the arts pertinent to
understanding the patent-in-suit.
The motion to strike declaration (document no. 89) is
denied, but without prejudice to interposing an appropriate
objection at trial.
