Civil Action No. RDB-06-1389 Dear Counsel and Parties: In light of the flurry of motions filed by the parties in the last few days, I thought it might be advisable to summarize any outstanding motions and the schedule for this Monday morning. There are, to my knowledge, three motions still awaiting rulings from the Court. Those are the Plaintiff's Motion In Limine to Preclude Dr. Blumberg from Presenting Hearsay Evidence (Paper No. 154), Plaintiff's Motion In Limine requesting that "No Jurors be Stricken Because of Defendants' Activities on October 20 and 21, 2007" relating to the Defendant's news release apparently indicating their intent to protest at several Maryland churches this weekend (Paper No. 174), and Plaintiff's Motion In Limine with respect to a series of exhibits which have been listed by the Defendants (Paper No. 179). I will address those motions at 9:30 a.m. in Court. Following a hearing on these remaining motions, I will provide copies of the Voir Dire and Preliminary Instructions prior to the jurors being brought into the courtroom for jury selection. I will expect Counsel and all parties and corporate representatives to be in the courtroom promptly on Monday morning so as to commence proceedings at 9:30 a.m. Sincerely, /s/ Richard D.
