In a full Defense verdict, the Honorable Howard R. Lloyd United States Magistrate Judge, in the case of Moore v. Robinson Oil issued the following statement on June 11th, 2012.
“Both Plaintiffs expert and Blackseth (defense expert) are California Certified Access Specialists, and each have many years experience in the building trade. Plaintiffs expert, however, appeared to have a weak understanding of the ADA’s readily achievable standard and made some assertions that seemed flat-out incorrect. It was also his first time ever testifying in court, and he was distractingly surely on cross-examination. He did not come across as especially convincing. Blackseth, in contrast, had testified in court dozens of times (for both plaintiffs and defendants), had weightier qualifications, demonstrated extensive knowledge, and was persuasive.”
