In their Motion to Approve Use of Statistical Sampling (Doc. 154, Sampling Mot.), Plaintiffs Residential Funding Company, LLC, and the Res Cap Liquidating Trust (collectively “RFC”) seek an order in limine approving their proposed sampling methodology to determine a breach rate for groups of loans sold to RFC by the Defendants in 23 cases where the total number of loans exceeded 500 in an individual case. After the loans in the sample are re-underwritten to determine whether any representations and warranties made by a defendant were breached, Dr. Snow’s declaration, in its memorandum in support of the instant motion, RFC requests the following relief: The Court should (i) hold that Plaintiffs may attempt to establish liability and determine damages by use of a statistically valid random sample of loans in substantially the manner set forth in the declaration of Dr. Snow submitted with plaintiffs’ motion; and (ii) admit into evidence the expert testimony of Dr. Snow regarding statistical sampling pursuant to Federal Rule of Evidence 702.

Karl Snow, has designed a sampling protocol that is described in his expert declaration submitted in support of this motion.
