Clifford P.D. Redekop Family LLC v. Utah Cty. Real Estate LLC, 2016 UT App 121 (June 3, 2016)

In this commercial real estate dispute, the Court of Appeals held the district court did not abuse its discretion when it excluded an expert as a Rule 37 sanction for willful non-compliance with a prior scheduling order and Rule 26’s expert designation requirements. The Court of Appeals then held, as a matter of first impression, that the district court correctly concluded expert testimony was necessary for the calculation of square footage of commercial real property.
