Judge Robinson decides additional evidentiary disputes during SRI Int’l v. Cisco trial

Judge Sue L. Robinson recently decided various evidentiary disputes during trial.    SRI Int’l Inc. v. Cisco Sys., Inc., C.A. No. 13-1534-SLR (D. Del. May 9, 2016).  Judge Robinson previously decided motions for summary judgment and pre-trial evidentiary disputes.  Judge Robinson precluded Cisco from presenting its §102(g) defense to the jury because, prior to the letters submitted regarding this dispute, Cisco had failed to “provide its allegations as to the full breadth” of its §102(g) defense.  Id. at 1-2.  Judge Robinson also decided the permissible scope of a late-disclosed fact witness who was also the designated corporate representative sitting at counsel table during trial.  Judge Robinson limited the witnesses’ testimony based on the fact that plaintiff was prejudiced by the insufficient disclosure of the bases for the witness’ testimony, as well as the fact that the witness was not sequestered.  Id. at 2-3.
