Administrator of the Estate of Robert E.
Staggs, and MELISSA STAGGS,
DOCTORS HOSPITAL OF MANTECA,
INC., et al.,
In this action Plaintiffs Linnie Staggs, individually and as the Administrator of the
Estate of Robert E. Staggs (“Decedent”), and Melissa Staggs (collectively “Plaintiffs”),
seek redress from, inter alia, Defendants Jack St. Clair, M.D.; Curtis Allen, M.D.; Lincoln
Russin, M.D.1; Edwin Bangi, M.D.; John Krpan, D.O.; Mario P. Sattah, M.D.; Doctors
Hospital of Manteca (“DHM”); and various Doe Defendants (collectively “Defendants”)
stemming from Defendants’ medical treatment of Decedent during his incarceration at
Sierra Conservation Center (“SCC”).
Since filing the present motion, Plaintiffs have reached a settlement agreement with Defendant
Dr. Russin. See ECF Nos. 220, 223, 229.
On March 29, 2019, the Court issued its Supplemental Pretrial Scheduling Order
(“Supplemental PTSO”) (ECF No. 233), which detailed, in part, that: (1) the Final Pretrial
Conference (“FPTC”) is set for December 5, 2019, at 2:00 p.m. (id. at 1); and (2)
regarding Motions in Limine, that, “[a]ny evidentiary or procedural motions are to be filed
in one document by November 8, 2019. Oppositions must be filed in one document by
November 22, 2019, and any reply must be filed in one document by November 29,
2019.” Id. at 5 (emphasis in original).
Subsequently, the SCC Defendants, through their attorney of record, filed
Objections to the Supplemental PTSO. ECF No. 234. The Objection seeks clarification
on the Court’s Order that all motions in limine, to include oppositions thereto, be filed “in
one document.” Id. at 2. To clarify the requirement that all motions in limine, oppositions
thereto, and replies in support of, be filed in “one” document, parties filing multiple
motions in limine must submit their motions and the supporting exhibits in one document
for the Court. Responses to motions in limine must also be submitted in one document.
Each side is not required to jointly file their motions, oppositions, and replies with the
IT IS SO ORDERED.
DATED: October 10, 2019
The Objections further requested that Diana Esquivel, attorney for SCC Defendants, be
permitted to appear by telephone at the December 5, 2019 FPTC. ECF No. 234, at 2. According to the
Joint Status Report filed September 17, 2019, Ms. Esquivel no longer has a conflict with the FPTC date.
