O'Brien v. Kaiser Foundation Health Plan of Mid-Atlantic States. Inc. et al
Civil No. PJM 14-190
With the beginning of the July trial looming, there are a number of matters that the Court wishes
to address at this time.
First, the Court understands that the parties are scheduled to meet again for mediation on June
18. The Court needs to be advised immediately if a settlement is reached during this or any
subsequent meeting. Otherwise, the Court and the Court's law clerk will have to dedicate
significant time to prepare for the Pre-Trial Conference and the Motions Hearing for the Motions
for Summary Judgment.
Second, as of the date of this Memorandum, eight motions in limine have been filed. In light of
the number of motions that need to be resolved at the Monday, June 29 Pre-Trial Conference, the
Court has cleared its schedule for the day. Counsel should jointly contact chambers to indicate
whether a start time in the morning or afternoon is preferred.
Finally, counsel for Plaintiffs contacted chambers regarding Kaiser Foundation's Motion for
Summary Judgment as to the Claim for Lack ofInformed Consent, or, in the Alternative, Motion
in Limine to Preclude Testimony of Plaintiffs' Experts on the Issue of Informed Consent. ECl'
No. 152. Although the Motion is styled as both a Motion for Summary Judgment as well as a
Motion in Limine, for sake of efficiency, the Court will hear argument on ECF No. 152 in its
entirety, e.g., the Motion for Summary Judgment and the Motion in Limine, on Monday, June 29
at the Pre-Trial Conference.
Despite the informal nature of this ruling, it shall constitute a
is directed to docket it accordingly.
