Final Pretrial Order

All items listed in Local Rules 16.1(a), and Local Rule Forms 16.1.1, 16.1.2, and 16.1.3 must be submitted at the time the final pretrial order is submitted, plus the optional items listed in Form 16.1.1(2)(h) and 16.1.1(2)(m), that is trial briefs, jury instructions (or proposed findings and conclusions), and voir dire questions. Motions in limine must also be submitted on the date the pretrial order is due. A date for filing answers to any motions in limine will be set at the time the pretrial order is submitted, usually 7 to 14 days. Parties are instructed to cooperate in establishing a set of undisputed facts. Parties should not duplicate exhibits and all exhibits are to be numbered. The same numbers for exhibits will be used at trial, even if some exhibits are stricken. A conference will be held prior to trial at which motions in limine, objections to exhibits, objections to witnesses, and other such matters will be ruled upon.
