After thorough review of the extensive briefing on Defendants' Motion to Exclude the Testimony of Plaintiffs' Expert Sohail Khattak, M.D., FRCPC, and Plaintiffs' opposition thereto, the Court finds it necessary to hold a Dauberthearing. Trial is fast approaching so time is of the essence. Plaintiffs' counsel shall advise the Court and defense counsel as soon as possible as to Dr. Khattak's availability in the next few weeks. The Court will work with counsel to arrange a mutually convenient date and time for the hearing. The Court expects all counsel will do their best to arrange/rearrange their schedules to enable the Court to hold the hearing promptly so the March 31st trial may proceed as scheduled.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Very truly yours,
Jan R. Jurden Judge
