Very interesting opinion from Magistrate Judge Crigler on Virginia products liability law, expert testimony, and spoliation
In Evans v. Medtronic, Inc., Magistrate Judge Crigler of the W.D. Va. recommended that the defendant's motion for summary judgment be sustained in part and denied in part, granted in part the defendant's motion to strike part of the plaintiff's expert testimony, and granted the plaintiff's motion for the sanction of an adverse inference on account of evidence spoliation. The opinion is 52 pages of interesting stuff.
