the parties' filed papers. We'll have to see how the proof comes in. The Court
requests that counsel pay particular attention to draft Final Instructions Nos.

Customer Management Group, Inc., 491 F.3d 790 (8th Cir. 2007); and Peebles v.
Potter, 354 F.3d 761 (8th Cir. 2004).
The Court notes the School District's proposed new instructions filed
this afternoon. Burden of proof and nominal damages are in the Court's draft.
