Judge Disallows Some Defense Expert Testimony

As the federal "bid-rigging" trial of DOA civil servant Georgia Thompson entered its fourth day, Judge Rudolph Randa made a qualified ruling on a government motion to strike some expert defense witness testimony.

Randa said some of the opinions the experts were to give have already been heard by the court and would be "cumulative" and wouldn't aid the jury.

However, the judge said he would allow Helen McCain from the Bureau of Procument to testify on whether it is appropriate to move an RFP to a best and final offer stage when there is a point spread of 21 points.
