Neurosurgeon Barred From Opining On Woman’s Back Condition, Judge Concludes
(August 15, 2016, 11:04 AM EDT) -- PORTLAND, Ore. — A neurosurgeon may not testify in a strict product liability lawsuit that a woman would not have suffered significant injury were it not for her chronic degenerative condition, an Oregon federal judge ruled Aug. 10, barring the opinion that the woman would have become paralyzed at some point in the future as irrelevant (Jeanie Chong v. STL International Inc. and Costco Wholesale Corp., No. 14-244, D. Ore.; 2016 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 105512).
