We found an expert who had worked for 30+ years in the asphalt pavement industry, and had experience evaluating asphalt and bonding. He was an executive at a consulting firm specializing in asphalt materials, materials evaluation and forensic evaluations. Additionally, he had held several roles at a government highway administration organization as well as authoring over 50 publications on asphalt and pavement issues. Finally, he had been retained as an expert witness in many litigation matters, had been deposed and had testified several times in non-patent cases. The case was dismissed.
