In a sua sponte order, Judge Gilstrap revises limine practice.
As always, there may not be sufficient context to fully appreciate the rulings, but they are still worth reviewing (and there are a lot).
Magistrate Judge Bray issued several orders in the run-up to trial in this trademark case.
Mostly limine with a side of motion to exclude and a doggie bag of MSJ and expert rulings.
Pretty standard rulings, but limine orders are always worth checking to see what is presumptively out.
First the ruling. Judge Mazzant precluded certain evidence and arguments related to certain third-party advertisements and sales.
This order arising from a recent pretrial conference provides an example of the type of rulings that parties receive on the eve of trial from Judge Gilstrap.
Well, they’re really just limines.
The court granted the motion, precluding arguments regarding an alleged failure to preserve documents or destruction of document.
Nothing like order on pretrial motions, motions in limine and preliminary jury instructions to tell you what’s what.
