Franklin v. Jackson County Sherriff Department et al
MEMORANDUM AND ORDER, The Court GRANTS Franklin's Motions in Limine (Doc. 122, 123, 124, 125, and 126) and DENIES Franklin's Motion in Limine (Doc. 128). Signed by Judge J. Phil Gilbert on 3/8/2018. (jdh)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS
Case No. 14-cv-1102-JPG-RJD
MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
This matter comes before the Court on plaintiff Wilson Franklin’s motions in limine, which
were filed prior to a previously set 2017 trial date (Docs. 122-26 & 128). The trial has been continued
to May 7, 2018. The Court has considered the earlier filed motions and rules as follows:
GRANTS Franklin’s Motion in Limine to Exclude Evidence of Plaintiff’s Disciplinary History
and Other Instances of Misconduct While Incarcerated at Jackson County Jail (Doc. 122);
GRANTS Franklin’s Motion in Limine to Exclude Non-Party Witnesses From Attending Trial
GRANTS Franklin’s Motion in Limine to Exclude Evidence of Plaintiff's Unrelated Medical
History (Doc. 124);
GRANTS Franklin’s Motion in Limine to Exclude Evidence Regarding Settlement (Doc. 125);
GRANTS Franklin’s Motion in Limine Regarding Plaintiff’s Visual Appearance (Doc. 126).
Franklin must provide his own civilian clothes and make them available for inspection by
security prior to donning them for trial; and
DENIES Franklin’s Motion in Limine to Exclude and/or Limit Evidence of Plaintiff’s Prior
Criminal Convictions and to Exclude Evidence of Plaintiff’s Prior Arrests (Doc. 128). Some
such evidence may be properly used to impeach Franklin if he testifies at trial and will be
limited, if necessary, at that time.
These rulings are without prejudice to reconsideration or renewal in connection with the currently
scheduled trial and the evidence and issues presented at that time.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
DATED: March 8, 2018
