U.S. District Court (CA) Judge Christina Snyder's opinion stated, "The Court finds that Blount is qualified to testify as an expert in this case. Blount has served as an expert in the medical billing field and has testified regarding medical billing issues in state and federal courts.... The Court also concludes that Blount’s methodology...is a sound analytical method that will assist the jury in understanding the relatively complex issue of medical billing practices."    (Glenwood v. Augment, Civil No. 10-8910)

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)
“In this case, Blount testified that there is a standard method among hospitals for calculating the reasonable amount of billed charges, and, according to his research, TMC charged rates that were higher than comparable hospitals…. Considering the testimony presented, we conclude that Blount's opinion was both reliable and relevant…. Moreover, the trial court properly concluded that Blount's testimony was relevant. Our Supreme Court has already held that a comparison of charges is relevant to the issue of reasonableness. See Bowden II, supra, 297 Ga. at 296. Thus, Blount's opinions as to the reasonableness of the chargemaster rates are helpful to the trier of fact.”
