United States v. Raymond

2010 | Cited 0 times | D. Maine | February 23, 2010

ORDER ON DEFENDANT'S MOTION FOR DISCOVERY

The Motion for Discovery is GRANTED. The government shall make a more complete disclosure under Fed. R. Crim. P. 16(a)(1)(G) of what the proffered expert's testimony will be.

Like the defendant's lawyer, I cannot tell from the government's disclosure what the proffered expert witness will testify, and I do not believe that I should have to read his books and his testimony in other trials to find out. In order for me to make the relevance and reliability determinations required by Daubert v. Merrell Dow Pharmaceuticals, 509 U.S. 579 (1993), (as well as the scientific determinations) at the upcoming hearing on the motion in limine, I need to know what Mr. Lanning's testimony will be in this trial that relates to the conduct of this defendant or the alleged victim in this case.

SO ORDERED.
