Damages Expert’s Linear Valuation of User Activations Excluded
The court granted in part defendant's motion in limine to exclude the opinion of plaintiff's damages expert concerning the value of user activations. "The Court grants the Motion with respect to [the expert's] opinion that user activations beyond the initial activation should be valued at a constant $0.115 rate. Based on the evidence before the Court, [the expert's] report applies too linear a relationship between the first and all subsequent activations. If there is a quantifiable value for the second, third, and other activations, [plaintiff] may present evidence of that value at trial."
