Trial Briefs

The Court’s “Scheduling, Pretrial Conference, and Trial Order” requires all parties to file trial briefs. The trial brief must identify the issues to be tried; the elements of the claim(s) involved in the action; any stipulations entered into by the parties; evidentiary questions and any other legal issues reasonably anticipated to arise at trial (along with citations to legal authority in support of evidentiary or legal issues); and identify the anticipated testimony of each witness. The plaintiff's trial brief must be filed at least 21 days before the final pretrial conference, and the opposing party's trial brief must be filed at least 14 days before the final pretrial conference. Any supplementary brief must be filed at least 7 business days before the final pretrial conference.
