UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS
December 8, 2011
IN RE: YASMIN AND YAZ(DROSPIRENONE) MARKETING,SALES PRACTICES AND PRODUCTS LIABILITY LITIGATION
BAYER CORP., ET AL.,
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Herndon, Chief Judge:
This Document Relates to:
Pending before the Court is plaintiff's November 18, 2011 motion in limine to exclude any specific causation opinions by defense expert witnesses hematologists (Doc. 150). Specifically, plaintiffs move to prohibit defense expert witnesses Adam Cuker, M.D., M.S; Spero R. Cataland, M.D.; and Mark Crowther, M.D., MSc, FRCPC, from testifying regarding the causation of plaintiff's injuries as these witnesses are generic hematology experts who have not submitted case-specific reports as to plaintiff. On December 5, 2011, defendants filed a response indicating that "Bayer has no intention of eliciting specific causation opinions from these experts." (Doc. 185). Thus, the Court GRANTS plaintiff's motion in limine as to these generic hematology experts. The Court BARS defendants from introducing specific causation opinions as to the cause of Sims' imjuries, including potential hypotheticals, from Drs. Cuker, Cataland and Crowther.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
