The court held a status conference for the above-captioned case on November 2, 2011; Noreen Farrell, Kristen Galles and James Sturdevant appeared for plaintiffs; Nancy Sheehan and David Burkett appeared for defendant.
Having reviewed the parties' Joint Status Report filed on October 26, 2011 (ECF 640), and discussed a schedule for the remaining damages case with counsel at the hearing, the court sets the following schedule:
Joint pretrial statement due: February 1, 2012
Final pretrial conference: February 8, 2012 Hearing on motions in limine: February 8, 2012 at 10 a.m. Jury trial: March 5, 2012 at 9 a.m.
Having discussed the matter with counsel, and good cause appearing, the court will treat defendant's separate status report (ECF 639) as defendant's opening brief seeking leave to file a dispositive motion in limine. The court confirms the following schedule to resolve this threshold motion:
Five (5) page opposition due: November 9, 2011 Five (5) page reply, if any, due: November 16, 2011 If, based on the parties' arguments and representations in these briefs, the court grants defendant's request and holds a hearing on the merits of the proposed dispositive motion in limine, such hearing will take place on December 14, 2011 at 10 a.m.; the court will issue a briefing schedule in accordance with this hearing date, if the hearing is confirmed.
The court also will refer this case to settlement. The parties are to submit a stipulation with seven (7) days of the issuance of this order indicating their availability for settlement conference. Upon receipt of the stipulation, the court will issue an order of referral.
