U.S. District Court (NJ) Judge Jerome Simandle's opinion stated, "Mr. Blount isqualified to testify as an expert on Medicare reimbursement and billing issues. He possesses specialized knowledge, based on his over thirty years extensive experience as a healthcare auditor addressing Medicare reimbursement concerns and through his published works." (Landau v. Lucasti, Civil No. 06-1229)
Muscogee County (GA) Superior Court Judge Maureen Gottrieds opinion stated, "“After hearing Mr. Blount's qualifications and testimony at the June 5, 2017 hearing on class certification, this Court finds that Mr. Blount is qualified to render an opinion as an expert in this case and therefore denies TMC's motion to exclude Mr. Blount's testimony.”(Enterprise Leasing and Danielle Bowden, et al v. The Medical Center, Civil Action File No. SU12CV2676)
U.S. District Court (IL) Judge Amy J. St. Eve's opinion stated, "Mr. Blount's testimony is relevant under Daubert because it helps the trier of fact determine whether Chaudhry should be entitled to a benefit under the Policy—a benefit that is calculated based, in part, on Chaudhry's income prior to his disability." (Chaudhry vs. Provident Life, Civil No. 12-cv-5838)
U.S. 11th Circuit Court of Appeals opinion stated, "Blount’s and Schmor’s testimony did not violate the collateral source rule. Their testimony addressed the reasonableness and necessity of what Showan had paid for her discectomy. Whether the expenses were “reasonable and necessary” is a critical inquiry under Georgia law. ...Accordingly, the district court did not abuse its discretion in admitting the testimony of Blount and Schmor." (Showan v. Krispy Kreme, No. 17-15547)
