We found an expert with an M.Sc. in Mathematics and a Ph.D. in Operations Research and Industrial Engineering who was a Professor of Computer Science at a prestigious university. He was a recognized expert in airport security measures and understood how airport baggage and personal item screening equipment is constructed and how it works. His specialty was quantifying the value of airport screening systems in relation to moving passengers through screening checkpoints. Additionally, he understood the defendant’s procurement policies. Well-published, he had written over 150 papers many of which were on airport security systems. Finally, he had been an expert witness previously having written four expert reports and prepared for one deposition. The case was decided in the plaintiff’s favor with extensive damages awarded.
