Here are the Court's rulings on Defendants' motion in limine, NQ 175.
Granted as modified. We're not going to try the internal affairs
investigation. Any party's inconsistent statement during the
investigation is admissible.
Granted as modified. Other incidents are out, except that Scott
may offer evidence of the Washington/Brooks encounter as an
alleged cause of the Washington/Scott encounter. If Scott can't
show any causal relationship, the Court will strike and disregard
Granted as agreed on other lawsuits.
Granted on related disciplinary actions.
Granted as agreed on other disciplinary actions.
Granted as agreed on any "missing" videos.
Granted on force policies. They're marginally relevant on the
constitutional issues; but they would open the door to the internal
investigation, which would confuse the issues.
Denied on witnesses now identified or as needed to implement
the Court's rulings.
Granted as modified. Scott's grievances related to this suit come
in; all others are out.
Motion, N2 175, granted in part and denied in part.
