Pretrial Orders, Trial Exhibits, and Motions in Limine

Parties are required to file a proposed final pretrial order that contains the items set forth in the final pretrial order form appended to Local Rule 16.1 (the Court requires inclusion of asterisked items (h)(ii), h(iii), (k), (l), and (m)), along with all motions in limine.  The parties should not file boilerplate motions in limine; counsel should confer prior to the filing of such motions in a genuine effort to narrow the evidentiary issues to those that are actually contested. 

When filing their proposed final pretrial order and motions in limine, the parties should also submit to Judge Alonso's courtroom deputy in Room 1908 three courtesy copies of the proposed final pretrial order, three sets of their trial exhibits, and three sets of their motions in limine, which should be bound and tabbed.  Judge Alonso needs three copies of all trial related documents.
