1 2 3 4 UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT 5 NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA 6 7 DENNIS E. MUNSON, Case No. 12-cv-05089-JCS Plaintiff, 8 v. 9 10 SPLICE COMMUNICATIONS, INC., et al., Defendants. ORDER GRANTING IN PART AND DENYING IN PART MOTION FOR ADDITIONAL TIME Re: Dkt. No. 83 United States District Court Northern District of California 11 12 13 14 At the Pretrial Conference on February 21, 2014, the Court ordered that each party be 15 allotted six and one half hours for witness testimony. Defendant contends the time allotted by the 16 Court will be insufficient to present its defense and requests that each side be given 12 hours to 17 present its case. Defendant’s request is GRANTED in part. Each side will be given 10 hours to 18 present its case. To accommodate this increase, the Court designates Friday, March 7 as an 19 additional trial day. In addition, the Court may conduct trial proceedings on March 11 and/or 12, 20 as the Court’s schedule permits. Although the Court extends the time for witness testimony, 21 nothing in this order should be construed as a ruling regarding the admissibility of the testimony 22 Defendant describes in its request for additional time. To the extent the testimony described by 23 Defendant exceeds the scope of the Court’s prior rulings on the motions in limine, this order does 24 not constitute a ruling that such testimony is admissible. Further, as stated at the pre-trial 25 conference, the Court will not permit the introduction of testimony that runs afoul of Rule 403 of 26 27 28 1 the Federal Rules of Evidence or that amounts to a mini-trial on issues that are not the subject of 2 this action. 3 IT IS SO ORDERED. 4 5 Dated: February 28, 2014 6 7 8 ______________________________________ JOSEPH C.
