In the latest development in the GlasWeld-Boyle lawsuit, officials from GlasWeld have filed a response to Mike and Christopher Boyle’s recent motion to exclude expert testimony. Plaintiff GlasWeld says the U.S. Federal District Court of Oregon should not “entertain” the defendants’ motion.
The Boyles seek to exclude testimony from Justin Price and Randy Mackey. GlasWeld contends that Price’s testimony is admissible because his knowledge as a mechanical engineer can help the court to understand the evidence in the alleged patent infringement case. Mackey is a named inventor on both patents in question, according to the company’s attorneys.
The defendants’ argument that GlasWeld’s attorneys fabricated the expert opinions is without merit, according to the company’s court filings.
“Defendants fail to note any areas relevant to the opinions at issue where GlasWeld’s experts failed to defend their position or testified that the opinion provided was anything but their own,” according to the court documents.
GlasWeld filed the alleged patent infringement lawsuit against Mike Boyle in the U.S. District Court of Oregon, Eugene division, in 2012. His son, Christopher, was later added as a defendant in the case.
The judge had not yet responded to the new motions in court.
