Accenture, L.L.P. v. Wellogix, Inc.
Petition for certiorari denied on June 9, 2014
Issue: Whether Federal Rule of Evidence 702 requires
a court, and not the jury, to decide whether
expert testimony is “based on sufficient facts or data”
and “reliably applie[s] . . . principles and methods to
the facts of the case,” and to set aside a jury verdict
that rests on expert testimony that fails to meet these
fundamental requirements. SCOTUSblog Coverage
