Ware v. McDonald

United States District Court, E.D. California

April 25, 2017

MARTIN WARE, Plaintiff,
v.
M. McDONALD, et al., Defendants.

          FURTHER SCHEDULING ORDER

          KENDALL J. NEWMAN UNITED STATES MAGISTRATE JUDGE

         Motions for summary judgment in this matter have been resolved pursuant to order filed March 31, 2017. This case proceeds on plaintiff's claims that defendants Holt, Giessner, and Glover used excessive force. Good cause appearing, the court will, by this order, set a further schedule for this litigation.

         The parties will be required to file pretrial statements in accordance with the schedule set forth below. As set forth in this court's initial scheduling order, in addition to the matters already required to be addressed in the pretrial statement in accordance with Local Rule 281, plaintiff will be required to make a particularized showing in the pretrial statement in order to obtain the attendance of witnesses.

It is the plaintiff's responsibility to produce all of the evidence to prove the case, whether that evidence is in the form of exhibits or witness testimony. If the plaintiff wants to call witnesses to testify, plaintiff must follow certain procedures to ensure that the witnesses will be at the trial and available to testify.

2. The prospective witness has actual knowledge of relevant facts.

         With the pretrial statement, a party intending to introduce the testimony of incarcerated witnesses who have agreed voluntarily to attend the trial must serve and file a written motion for a court order requiring that such witnesses be brought to court at the time of trial.

         The motion must:
