On November 8, 2016, Judge James Shadid held a hearing on Plaintiffs’ Motion for Reconsideration on Judge Baker’s previous ruling denying Plaintiffs’ motion to strike new testimony IKO Submitted on behalf of two purported experts, Dr. Rene Dupuis and Andrew Lodge. Judge Shadid denied Plaintiffs’ motion but ordered IKO to produce documents and ordered that Plaintiffs be permitted to depose Dupuis and Lodge. The parties disagreed regarding the scope of the required production and on February 3, 2017, Plaintiffs filed a Motion to Compel. On February 28, 2017, Judge Shadid ordered IKO to produce additional documents.
