    Case Number: A17A0878

    The trial court did not abuse its discretion in excluding plaintiff's expert's testimony after concluding that the expert's methodology was unreliable under Daubert v. Merrell Dow Pharmaceuticals Inc., 509 U. S. 579 (1993), as the analytical gap between the data and the expert's opinion was too remote, and consequently, the trial court did not err in granting summary judgment to defendant based on the absence of any evidence of causation.
