Resolving Daubert Challenges

    Litigators must tire of homiletic reminders that various issues should be borne in mind at all times.  Here comes another one: Daubert carries implications for many stages of litigation, beginning with the court's initial scheduling conference and continuing all the way through trial and appeal.  The smart thing is to be aware of them as you go.

Rule 16 Conferences (pretrial scheduling orders)
Rule 26(a)(2)(B) Disclosures (the report)
Rule 26(e) Disclosures (supplementing the report)
Depositions (and other discovery)
Special Masters (and court-appointed experts)
Motions to Strike (and hearings thereon)
Rule 56 Motions (summary judgment)
Trial (and post-trial motions)
Appeal (briefing and argument)
