I'm going to conduct an evidentiary hearing to pre-admit exhibits and resolve, to the extent I can, your deposition objections after the jury is seated on Monday. We'll -- that hearing will -- I hope to get started about 11:30, and we'll work as much as we can, and I'll give you a short recess for lunch, and I'd like to start opening statements Monday afternoon about 3:00 o'clock. If I do preliminary instructions and opening statements, maybe get a little bit of testimony Monday afternoon, we'll be on -- on track. How much time do you need to present your case? MR.

MR. SPANGLER: Your Honor, all I would say, my final thing, and then I will sit down, is, you know, you look at the course of this litigation and what has happened, the inadvertent mistake versus what's happened, we just -- we would like to have an opportunity to respond to any proposed sanction that they're going to offer. THE COURT: Mr. Spangler, I'm not talking about a sanction for the intentional violation of -- of the discovery rule. I've made that clear. What I'm asking for is if they have some relief in mind to cure any prejudice they suffered, I'm inviting them to tell me what that is. The only relief that I know of to -- to cure it would be some type of a continuance of the trial, but nobody's asking me for that. The only -- it's like I've been presented with a binary choice that I'm not allowed to pick one of them because the only alternative sanction that was proposed was the death penalty sanction against y'all, and I've made it plain that I'm not going to do that. MR. SPANGLER: MR. PERLMAN: Thank you, Your Honor. Your Honor, I've had a few notes passed up to me, but I think what might make the most sense is for us to collect together and think what bf6cb8f8-6110-422e-9155-0cb448dca9d3 Page 79 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 makes the most sense and maybe we can present it to you on Monday if that's acceptable. THE COURT: Well, that's -- that's fine, but, I mean, you need to know where I'm coming from is I'm -- you know, if you're talking about some instructions to the jury, some punitive sanctions, don't even bother bringing them to me, okay? What I'm interested in is if you have any way that I can cure any prejudice that you've suffered, you know, and I'm willing to listen to you. MR. PERLMAN: goal to figure out. THE COURT: All right. Have you resolved That's what's going to be our the motion to have Mr. Pridham be assisting with the damages expert yet? MR. SPANGLER: THE COURT: We have not, Your Honor. Why shouldn't he be All right. entitled to assist with the damages presentation in the case? MS.
