The moving party will collate and file each motion and opposition 2 back-to-back, which means there will be one paired set for each motion in limine on the docket. 3 2. Joint Proposed Pretrial Order (instead of a pretrial conference statement) with the 4 following: 5 (a) a brief description of the claims and defenses to be decided; 6 (b) a statement of the relief sought; 7 (c) all stipulated, undisputed facts; 8 (d) all disputed fact issues to be tried, organized by count and described with the same 9 specificity as any contested element in the jury instructions; (e) each disputed legal issue with citations but without extended argument; 11 United States District Court Northern District of California 10 (f) the parties’ stipulations; 12 (g) the parties’ estimates of total trial time; and 13 (h) the status of settlement negotiations and whether further negotiations might be productive. 14 The proposed order must specify which issues are for the court to decide instead of the jury. 15 3. Attachments to Be Appended to the Joint Proposed Order. The filing must be filed as 16 separate attachments to the joint proposed order: 17 (a) Signed Stipulations in a form that can be introduced as evidence at trial; 18 (b) Joint Exhibit List with columns for exhibit number, description and bates range, offered 19 into evidence, admitted into evidence, sponsoring witness, and limits on use (see below regarding 20 numbering and organization of exhibits); and 21 (c) Each party’s separate witness list for case-in-chief witnesses (including those appearing 22 by deposition) with a short summary of the testimony, specifying their non-cumulative testimony, 23 and an hour-and-minute time estimate per witness.

Joint Jury Instructions (Disputed and Undisputed). The instructions must include a 2 table of contents, be arranged in a logical numerical sequence, and be supported by citations (with 3 pin cites) to the authority for the instruction (e.g., to the Ninth Circuit Model Jury Instructions, the 4 California Civil Jury Instructions, and/or case law). If undisputed, an instruction must be labeled 5 “Stipulated Instruction.” If disputed, the parties’ versions must bear the same instruction number, 6 be labeled with the sponsoring party’s name, and be inserted back to back in the logical place in 7 the overall sequence. If the opposing party does not have a counter instruction and instead 8 contends that no instruction should be given, the party should say so in a separate page inserted in 9 lieu of the alternate instruction. If the parties modify a form instruction, they must identify the 10 modification clearly and include the form instruction in the packet. If the parties agree to form 11 United States District Court Northern District of California 1 preliminary instructions, general instructions, and concluding instructions, they may cite the 12 numbers of the instructions in the current version of the Ninth Circuit Manual of Model Civil Jury 13 Instructions ( but do not need to include them in the packet. The 14 parties must include a short statement of the case to be read to the jury during voir dire as part of 15 the preliminary instructions. 16 17 5. Separate Memoranda on Disputed Jury Instructions. Each party must file a memorandum of law — organized by instruction number — regarding disputed jury instructions. 18 6. Trial Briefs on any remaining issues. 19 7. Copies of Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 26(a)(3) Disclosures. By designating an 20 exhibit, a party generally waives any objection to it if offered by the other side absent clearly 21 available objections (such as objections under Rules 402 and 403 or admissions by party 22 opponents that would be inadmissible hearsay if offered by the party opponent). 23 8. Chambers Copies of These Materials. The chambers copies of these materials must be 24 submitted in a binder, labeled on the front and spine with the case name and “Trial Submissions,” 25 and have labeled tabs separating the filings to reflect the organization in this section. The court’s 26 standing order requires two chambers copies. 27 28 9. Word Versions Emailed To Chambers. In addition to e-filing and lodging paper copies see Judge Beeler’s standing order, counsel must email the joint proposed order, the jury 16-cv-05526-LB CASE-MANAGEMENT AND PRETRIAL ORDER 5 1 2 3 4 instructions, and the verdict form in Word to D. 14 Days Before Pretrial Conference. The parties must comply with the procedures in sections E through G (below) and then lodge the following: 1. Lodge Joint Sets of Trial Exhibits with Deputy Clerk. The parties must prepare a joint, 5 single set of all trial exhibits. The exhibits must be in three-ring binders, and each exhibit must be 6 tagged and separated by a label divider identifying the exhibit number. Spine labels must identify 7 the exhibits in a particular binder. The exhibit binders must be marked “Original” and will be the 8 official record both at trial with the witnesses and on appeal. The parties also must lodge a second 9 copy of the exhibits labeled “Chambers Copy.” Lodge the exhibits with the deputy clerk, 10 Lashanda Scott. Include (and e-file) any updated exhibit list in each binder. United States District Court Northern District of California 11 2. Copies of Deposition Designations For Witnesses Appearing Only By Designation. 12 3. Copies of Designation of Interrogatories and Admissions. 13 4. Objections to Exhibits and Use of Depositions as set forth in Federal Rule of Civil 14 15 Procedure 26(a)(3)(B). Objections not raised are waived. 5. Chambers Copies. The chambers copies of these materials must be submitted in a binder, 16 labeled on the front and spine with the case name and a description of the contents, and have 17 labeled tabs separating the filings to reflect the organization in this section. 18 E. Other Procedures Regarding Exhibit Numbering and Organization. 19 1. Meet and Confer Regarding Exhibit Numbers. Before submitting exhibit lists and 20 binders, counsel must meet and confer to establish usable numbering conventions and eliminate 21 duplicate exhibits. Use numbers only, and if possible, exhibit numbers should be the same 22 numbers used in depositions. Otherwise, the deposition transcript must be conformed to the new 23 exhibit number to avoid jury confusion and to ensure that every exhibit has a unique number. 24 Blocks of numbers should be assigned to fit the needs of the case: e.g., Plaintiff has 1 to 99, 25 Defendant A has 100 to 199, Defendant B has 200 to 299, et cetera. All exhibits must be marked 26 “Trial Exhibit No.,” not Plaintiff’s Exhibit or Defendant’s Exhibit. A single exhibit must be 27 marked just once. 28 2. Exhibit Tags and Binders. The exhibit tag must be in the following form and must be 16-cv-05526-LB CASE-MANAGEMENT AND PRETRIAL ORDER 6 1 affixed on or near the lower right-hand corner if possible and on the back if it is not. Counsel must 2 fill in the tag but leave the last two spaces blank. UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA 3 4 TRIAL EXHIBIT 100 5 Case No. ________________ 6 Date Entered _____________ 7 By______________________ Deputy Clerk 8 9 F. Deposition Designation For Witnesses Appearing By Deposition. These procedures 10 apply only to deposition designation for witnesses who appear by deposition and do not apply to 11 United States District Court Northern District of California reading depositions of live witnesses into the record while the witnesses are testifying. 12 1. Designating Counsel. To designate deposition testimony, counsel must photocopy the 13 cover page, the page where the witness is sworn, and each page with any proffered testimony 14 (with lines through testimony not proffered). Counsel must put lines through objections or 15 colloquy unless they are needed to understand the question. Any corrections (including 16 conforming exhibit numbers to trial exhibit numbers) must be done by hand. The finished packet 17 must be the script that allows smooth presentation of the witness, the oath, and the testimony. The 18 packet must be provided to the other parties at least 30 days before the pretrial conference. For 19 voluminous designations, the court requires advance notice by designating counsel because more 20 lead time is required. Counsel must be reasonable. 21 2. Reviewing Counsel. Reviewing parties must promptly review the packet and highlight in 22 yellow any passages objected to and write in the margin the legal basis for the objections. If a 23 completeness objection is made, the objecting party must insert the additional passages needed to 24 cure the completeness objection. A completeness objection generally should be made only if a few 25 extra lines will cure the problem. Such additions must be highlighted in blue, and an explanation 26 for the inclusion must be legibly handwritten in the margin. Counsel must line out any irrelevant 27 portions of the additional pages. Reviewing counsel must return the packets to the proffering party 28 16-cv-05526-LB CASE-MANAGEMENT AND PRETRIAL ORDER 7 1 2 3 to consider whether to accept the adjustments. 3. Counsel To Meet and Confer Regarding Adjustments. Counsel must meet and confer to address reviewing counsel’s comments and any other issues. 4 4. Designating Counsel To Assemble Final Packet. Counsel for the proffering party must 5 collate and assemble a final packet that covers all remaining issues and provide it to the court 14 6 days before the pretrial conference (as set forth above). Any objections must be highlighted and 7 annotated as described in the preceding paragraphs. If exhibits are needed to resolve the 8 objections, designating counsel must include copies, with the relevant passages highlighted and 9 tagged. The court will read the packet and make its rulings in the margins in a distinctive manner. 10 5. Counter-Designations. The reviewing party must make any counter-designations by United States District Court Northern District of California 11 providing a packet with the counter-designated passages to the original designating counsel at the 12 same time as the reviewing party returns its objections to designating counsel. The original 13 designating counsel must supply any objections in the manner described in this section. 14 6. Video Depositions. The parties must follow the same procedures to facilitate ruling on 15 objections. The videos must omit dead time and objections and colloquy not necessary to 16 understand the answers. 17 G. Requests For Admissions And Interrogatories. Counsel must designate responses to 18 requests for admissions and interrogatory answers in the same manner and under the same 19 timetable as deposition designations. 20 VII. PRETRIAL CONFERENCE 21 22 23 24 Lead counsel for each party must attend. VIII. PRETRIAL ARRANGEMENTS A. Daily or Real-Time Reporting. Please make arrangements ten days before the trial date with Debra Campbell, Supervisor of the Court Reporting Services, at 415-522-2079. 25 26 27 28 16-cv-05526-LB CASE-MANAGEMENT AND PRETRIAL ORDER 8 1 B. Electronic Presentation of Evidence. The court provides no equipment other than an 2 easel and a white board. If counsel will use electronic equipment such as computers, projectors, 3 and screens, the parties must share equipment to the extent possible. Extension cords must be 4 taped to the carpet for safety. The United States Marshal requires a court order to allow equipment 5 into the courthouse. Please work with Lashanda Scott (415-522-3140) on all courtroom layout 6 issues. 7 IX. TRIAL AND TRIAL PROCEDURES 8 9 10 United States District Court Northern District of California 11 12 13 14 15 A. Schedule. The trial day is 8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. (or slightly longer to finish a witness), Monday through Friday, with one fifteen-minute break at 10:45 a.m. Counsel must arrive at 8:15 a.m. or earlier if any matters must be addressed outside of the jury’s presence. B. Jury Selection. There are no alternate jurors in civil cases, and the jury will be selected as follows. The attached questionnaire will be given to the potential jurors, and copies of the responses will be given to counsel at the beginning of voir dire. The court’s jury selection procedures vary depending on the size of the ultimate jury. 16 Assuming a final jury of 8 and 6 peremptory challenges, the court will call 18 to 20 jurors to fill 17 the jury box and a row in front of the bar. The jurors will be given numbers 1 through 18. The 18 remaining jurors will be seated in the public benches. The court will generally consider hardship 19 excuses at this point. The court then will question the 18 jurors and will allow counsel limited voir 20 dire. The court will address challenges for cause outside of the jurors’ presence, determine 21 whether to fill any empty seats, and if so, question the new jurors and consider any additional 22 challenges for cause. After a short recess, each side will exercise its peremptory challenges out of 23 the presence of the jurors. Of the remaining jurors, the eight (or other number of) jurors with the 24 lowest numbers will be the final jury. 25 The court will adjust the starting numbers depending on the number of jurors to be seated and 26 the number of peremptory challenges allowed. Also, the court may alter these procedures in its 27 discretion. 28 Once the jury is selected, the jurors’ names will be read, and they will be seated in the jury box 16-cv-05526-LB CASE-MANAGEMENT AND PRETRIAL ORDER 9 1 2 and sworn. C. Jury Note Taking. Jurors may take notes. Note pads will be distributed at the beginning of 3 each trial and collected at the end of the day and locked in the jury room. The court will instruct 4 the jury on the use of notes in its preliminary and final jury instructions. 5 D. Time Limits. Ordinarily, the court sets time limits for opening statements, witness 6 examinations (direct, cross, or re-direct), and closing arguments at the final pretrial conference. 7 All of your examination time for all witnesses must fit within your witness time limits. The time 8 taken at a side bar or on objections will be charged to the examining party unless otherwise 9 ordered. E. Opening Statements. Counsel must meet and confer about, and exchange, any visuals, 11 United States District Court Northern District of California 10 graphics, or exhibits to be used in the opening statements, allowing for time to work out objections 12 and any reasonable revisions. Opening statements begin after the jury is sworn and will be limited 13 to a predetermined time. 14 F. Advance Notice of Witness Order of Proof. By 2:00 p.m., counsel must give written 15 notice of the order of witnesses for the next court day and the exhibits (including merely 16 illustrative exhibits) to be used on direct examination (other than for true impeachment of a 17 witness). The parties must notify the court by the end of the day of any objections to the exhibits, 18 and the court will schedule a conference that afternoon or the following morning to resolve the 19 dispute. The court encourages two days’ notice. If two days’ notice is given, then by 2:00 p.m. on 20 the calendar day immediately preceding the testimony, opposing counsel must provide any 21 objections to the exhibits and must provide a list of all exhibits to be used with the same witness 22 on cross-examination (other than for impeachment). 23 G. Witness Examinations. Generally there must be only one examining lawyer per witness 24 per party, and the examining lawyer must make any objections to the opposing counsel’s 25 examination. The parties must have witnesses ready to testify so that trial gaps are avoided. Gaps 26 may be construed as resting one’s case. In cases with multiple parties, counsel must coordinate 27 cross-examination to avoid duplication of testimony. When multiple parties are on one side, only 28 one counsel may cover a subject matter. Counsel must place copies of exhibits to be used by a 16-cv-05526-LB CASE-MANAGEMENT AND PRETRIAL ORDER 10 1 2 witness on the witness stand before the witness testifies. Witnesses (except named parties) are excluded from the courtroom except when they are 3 testifying. If a testifying witness has not been excused before a recess, that witness must be seated 4 back on the stand when the court reconvenes. If a new witness is ready to be called immediately 5 after a recess, the witness must be in the first row after the recess. 6 7 8 9 The appropriate party or the court may read into the record the undisputed facts at appropriate points in the trial. H. Expert Testimony. Direct expert testimony is limited to matters disclosed in the expert’s reports. Omitted material ordinarily may not be added on direct examination. Illustrative animations, diagrams, charts, and models may be used on direct examination only if they were part 11 United States District Court Northern District of California 10 of the expert report, except that an expert may use simple drawings (such as those drawn by the 12 witness at trial) that plainly illustrate a report’s contents. If cross-examination fairly opens the 13 door, however, an expert may go beyond the written report on cross-examination and/or re-direct 14 examination. By written stipulation, all parties may relax these requirements. As to damages 15 studies, the cut-off for past damages is the date of the expert report (or an earlier date selected or 16 used by the expert). Experts may project future damages after this cut-off date if they can meet 17 substantive standards for future damages. With timely leave of court or by written stipulation, the 18 experts may update their reports (or provide supplemental reports) to a date closer to the time of 19 trial. 20 I. Use of Depositions To Impeach A Trial Witness. The following procedures apply. 21 1. On the first day of trial, counsel must bring the original and clean copies of the depositions 22 to be used at trial. If counsel might use a deposition against a witness, counsel must provide the 23 court with a copy at the outset of the examination. Opposing counsel must have copies of witness 24 depositions immediately available. 25 2. Counsel must seek permission from the court before reading a passage into the record. For 26 example, counsel should state, “I wish to read page 210, lines 1 to 10, from the witness’s 27 deposition.” Counsel must pause briefly to allow any objection. 28 3. The first time counsel reads a deposition, counsel must state the deponent’s name, the name 16-cv-05526-LB CASE-MANAGEMENT AND PRETRIAL ORDER 11 1 of the lawyer asking the question, and whether the deposition was a Federal Rule of Civil 2 Procedure 30(b)(6) deposition. The first time a deposition is read, the court will instruct the jury 3 about depositions. 4 4. When reading the passage, counsel must employ the following technique. Counsel must 5 state, “question” and then read the question exactly, and then state, “answer” and read the answer 6 exactly. This will allow the jury and court reporter to follow who said what at the deposition. 7 Opposing counsel may ask to read additional testimony necessary to complete the context. It is not 8 necessary to ask, “didn't you say XYZ in your deposition” to lay a foundation. 9 J. Use of Depositions of Party-Deponents. Subject to Rule 403, a party’s depositions may be used for “any purpose” and may be read into the record whether or not they contradict (and 11 United States District Court Northern District of California 10 regardless of who is on the stand). For example, a short party deposition excerpt may be used as 12 foundation for questions for a different witness on the stand. 13 K. Use of Depositions For Witnesses Appearing Only By Deposition. When the packet 14 (see above for procedures to assemble deposition packets) is read to the jury, the examiner must 15 read the questions (and any relevant colloquy) from the lectern while a colleague sits in the 16 witness stand and reads the answers. While reading the deposition, the reader and “witness” must 17 refrain from undue emphasis or dramatization. If a read-in is short, a single attorney can read it all, 18 being careful to say “question” and “answer” for the court reporter’s and jury’s comprehension. 19 Exhibits may be projected onto the screen as they are referenced. Court reporters do not transcribe 20 video excerpts so counsel must file an exact copy of what was shown. 21 L. Exhibits. The parties must obtain prior permission from the court for jury notebooks. At 22 the end of each day, counsel must confer with each other and with the deputy clerk to confirm 23 what exhibits are in evidence and any limitations on their use. Counsel must bring any differences 24 to the court’s attention. Similarly, before closing argument, counsel must confer with each other 25 and the deputy clerk to finalize the exhibits and prepare any final exhibit list. That list may include 26 a brief non-argumentative description of the exhibit to help the jury access the exhibits. 27 28 M. Stipulations. Counsel must read all stipulations to the jury for them to be part of the record. 16-cv-05526-LB CASE-MANAGEMENT AND PRETRIAL ORDER 12 1 N. Objections. Counsel must stand when making objections, give only the legal basis 2 (“objection, calls for speculation” or “objection, hearsay”), and refrain from making speeches. 3 O. Side Bar Conferences are discouraged. If matters must be discussed outside the jury’s 4 presence, counsel should raise them at the beginning or end of the day or while the jury is on 5 break. 6 P. Charging Conference. Before the close of evidence, the court will provide draft final jury instructions to the parties and allow a reasonable time for review. Thereafter, the court will hold 8 one or more charging conferences to address objections, modifications, or additions to the 9 instructions. The parties must renew any specific instruction request — including those requested 10 pretrial — at the conference or it will be deemed waived. For example, if a party wants to request 11 United States District Court Northern District of California 7 an instruction that the court omitted from its draft instructions, the party must re-request it at the 12 charging conference or the request will be deemed waived or abandoned. 13 IT IS SO ORDERED. 14 Dated: January 13, 2017 ______________________________________ LAUREL BEELER United States Magistrate Judge 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 16-cv-05526-LB CASE-MANAGEMENT AND PRETRIAL ORDER 13 1 CONFIDENTIAL 2 JUROR QUESTIONNAIRE Please fill out this form as completely as possible and print clearly.
