"Nevertheless, the individual reports cited must be shown to be independently reliable under Daubert before they can be admitted."
The Supreme Court in Daubert explained that Federal Rule of Evidence 702 allows the admission of expert testimony only if: (1) the expert is competent and qualified to testify regarding the matters that he intends to address; (2) the methodology by which the expert reaches his conclusions is sufficiently reliable; and (3) the expert, through scientific, technical or specialized expertise, provides testimony that assists the trier of fact to understand the evidence or determine a fact in issue. ... Defendant contends that Plaintiffs' experts' testimony fails to meet the Daubert standards for admissibility because Plaintiffs' experts (1) have failed to provide any evidence, either published or unpublished, that Parlodel® increases one's risk of stroke; (2) rely on uncontrolled and unreliable spontaneous reports and anecdotal case reports as the basis for their opinions; and (3) cannot show that their opinions have an acceptable error rate or are otherwise generally accepted.
Thus, while plaintiffs' experts testified that in performing differential diagnosis in this case, they ruled out other possible causes of Glastetter's ICH, the experts and plaintiffs must also come forward with evidence "ruling in" Parlodel as a possible cause of ICH. If no evidence suggests that Parlodel can cause ICH in humans generally, then the Court does not believe that plaintiffs' experts conclusions that Parlodel caused ICH in Glastetter, as evidenced by their use of differential diagnosis, passes the reliability standards under Daubert and its progeny. ... Defendant claims that both experts must be excluded, because they do not meet the test of scientific reliability set forth by the Supreme Court in Daubert v. Merrell Dow Pharmaceuticals, 509 U.S. 579, 113 S.Ct. 2786, 125 L.Ed.2d 469 (1993).
Daubert thus teaches that "`the trial judge must determine whether [an expert's] opinion was grounded in the "methods and procedures of science," Daubert, [cite] and whether such testimony had sufficient `factual underpinnings.'" ... The principle of Daubert is merely that if an expert witness is to offer an opinion based on science, it must be real science, not junk science.
