Final Pretrial Orders

The Court sets firm trial dates. All parties should be prepared to proceed on their trial dates.  The Final Pretrial Conference will be held at least 10 days before trial.  In the event that a date for the Final Pretrial Conference has not been previously set, the parties are to obtain a date from the Courtroom Deputy.  Unless otherwise ordered, motions in limine are due two weeks before the Final Pretrial Conference.  Responses to motions in limine and the final pretrial order are due one week before the Final Pretrial Conference.  For jury trials, the Final Pretrial Order does not need to contain findings of fact unless the parties agree and stipulate to the findings.
