The Takeaway The Petitioner’s expert failed a Daubert challenge and failed its client for the following reasons:
1) failed to apply common methodology,
2) valued the subject easement after relying on a draft of the easement (rather than the final version),
3) assumed that the subject property had been annexed by the city when it had not, and
4) valued the subject interest using a development plan that could not possibly fit on the subject parcel.
