Tenth discusses the reliability prong of FRE 702

In re: Urethane Antitrust Litigation, 2014 WL 4801253 (9/30/14) (Kan.) (Published) - In the course of finding no abuse of discretion in permitting expert testimony, the 10th insists that reliability is primarily a question of the validity of the methodology employed, not the quality of the data used in applying the methodology. It is up to the jury to evaluate the reliability of the underlying data, assumptions and conclusions.
