Esposito v. Home Depot U.S.A., Inc., No. 08-2115

By FindLaw Staff on December 30, 2009 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

In plaintiff's products liability action against manufacturers and retailers of a power saw that severed his three fingers when his hand came into contact with the saw's unguarded blade, district court's grant of summary judgment in favor of the defendants is vacated and remanded where: 1) district court's denial of motion to remand is affirmed as a procedural defect existing at the time of removal but cured prior to entry of judgment does not warrant reversal and remand of the matter to state court; and 2) district court's exclusion of plaintiff's expert testimony is reversed as the circumstances of the case did not justify such a sanction.
