Proceedings: (In Chambers) Order to Show Cause re Sanctions

On July 18, 2011, this Court issued its Order re Jury Trial, which, among other things, established deadlines for the preparation and filing of pretrial documents. (Docket no. 23.) The memoranda of contentions of fact and law, witness lists, and the joint exhibit list were required to be filed no later than 21 days before the pretrial conference -or December 19, 2011. (Id. at 4.) Although Plaintiff's counsel apparently sought to coordinate the filing of a joint exhibit list with defense counsel, she received no response. (Docket no. 19.) In addition, sanctions have recently been imposed on the defense for discovery violations. (Docket no. 34.)

Failure to comply with the Court's orders concerning the preparation of pretrial documents disadvantages both the opposing party and the Court. Defendants are ordered to show cause in writing why they should not be sanctioned in the amount of $1,000 for their failure to follow this Court's orders. Defendants are also ordered to show cause why they should not be precluded from calling any witnesses and offering any exhibits at

Defendants are ordered to submit a memorandum of contentions of fact and law no later than January 2, 2012.
