California College v. UCN, 2019 UT App 39 (March 21, 2019)

In a dispute between a telephone system provider and for-profit colleges, the Court of Appeals granted interlocutory review to decide whether the trial court properly denied a motion to exclude the plaintiffs’ two experts.  The district court reasoned that issues of conflicting data went to the weight of the evidence.  Because both sides agreed that the underlying data was flawed, the Court of Appeals reversed, holding that the district court had abused its discretion by admitting the experts’ testimony where their opinions were developed from a data set both parties agreed was unreliable.
