Honorable CHRISTINA A. SNYDER.
Proceedings: (IN CHAMBERS): PLAINTIFF FARRIS'S MOTION IN LIMINE NO. 3 TO EXCLUDE OR LIMIT TESTIMONY OF ROBERT CRANDALL (Farris ECF No. 191, filed November 3, 2014)
PLAINTIFFS ANDRESEN, BEKIARIAN, AND DUFFY'S MOTION IN LIMINE NO. 8 TO EXCLUDE EXPERT WITNESS LLOYD AUBRY, JR. (Andresen ECF No. 155, filed Nov. 12, 2014)
DEFENDANT'S MOTION IN LIMINE NO. 6 TO EXCLUDE EXPERT REBUTTAL WITNESS MILES E. LOCKER (Farris ECF No. 196, filed November 3, 2014)
DEFENDANT'S MOTION IN LIMINE NO. 13 TO EXCLUDE EXPERT REBUTTAL WITNESS DANIEL M. CORNET (Andresen ECF No. 152, filed November 11, 2014)
In its order dated November 17, 2014, the Court issued rulings on numerous motions in limine filed by the parties. That order reserved judgment on the four motions seeking to exclude or limit the testimony of proffered expert witnesses, and requested brief summaries of the testimony each party expected their experts to offer. Having considered all of the parties' submissions and arguments, the Court concludes that no party has shown cause for excluding any of the proffered experts altogether. The parties are admonished that no expert may opine on ultimate issues for the jury, or testify to legal conclusions that are the province of the Court.
In accordance with the foregoing, the Court DENIES defendant's motions in limine to exclude Miles E. Locker and Daniel M. Cornet. The Court also DENIES plaintiff Farris's motion in limine to exclude or limit the testimony of Robert Crandall, and DENIES plaintiffs Andresen, Bekiarian, and Duffy's motion in limine to exclude Lloyd Aubry, Jr.
IT IS SO ORDERED
