Majors v. Owens 2015 UT App 306 (Dec. 24, 2015)

Dec 24, 2015

The district court excluded expert testimony proffered in support of a personal injury claim failed to meet the requirements of Rule 702, because it merely established a chronology between the accident and injury without sufficiently analyzing the causal relationship. While recognizing the foundation was “somewhat thin,” the Court of Appeals held the lower court exceeded its discretion when it excluded the expert opinion of treating physicians.
