Oracle America, Inc. v. Google Inc.
ORDER REGARDING PRETRIAL FILINGS. Signed by Judge Alsup on September 2, 2011. (whalc1, COURT STAFF) (Filed on 9/2/2011)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
ORACLE AMERICA, INC.,
For the Northern District of California
United States District Court
No. C 10-03561 WHA
The filings described in paragraph two of the Guidelines for Trial and Final Pretrial
Conference in Civil Jury Cases Before the Honorable William Alsup shall be due on
OCTOBER 7, 2011, rather than October 10. The briefing schedule for motions in limine set forth
in paragraph 2(f) of the Guidelines is also advanced by three days. This adjustment is necessary
because the Columbus Day holiday falls on the date when pretrial filings otherwise would be due.
No more than five motions in limine may be filed by each side. The motions in limine
must be directed at excluding specific items of evidence; categorical motions and disguised
summary judgment motions are highly disfavored. Motions in limine made at this stage must be
ripe, not premature or dependent upon the way evidence develops at trial.
The opening memoranda for all five motions in limine by a party may not exceed a
combined total of fifty pages, but counsel may allocate the fifty pages among the five motions in
any way desired. The supporting paperwork for all five motions may not exceed a combined total
of two hundred pages, but counsel may allocate the two hundred pages among the five motions in
any way desired. Oppositions to motions in limine are subject to the same length requirements
and allocation flexibility. There will be no replies.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Dated: September 2, 2011.
