The court denied in part plaintiff's motion to strike the second supplemental report of defendant's damages expert even though the expert relied on "a 50% profit sharing rule" that plaintiff argued was "not based on an authoritative source." "[T]he record demonstrates that [defendant's expert] based her opinion regarding the general expectation for a company during a negotiation upon her 'review of thousands of agreements over the 33 years of [her] career.' The court concludes that [the expert's] experience in reviewing comparable agreements is sufficient to establish the reliability of her methodology."
