v.
Speedy Gonzalez Construction Inc., Defendant.

          ORDER

          Bridget S. Bade, United States Magistrate Judge

         The Court held a final pretrial conference in this matter on July 18, 2018. This matter is set for a three-day bench trial beginning Tuesday, September 11, 2018 and concluding no later than Thursday, September 13, 2018. The trial will be held in Courtroom 304 of the Sandra Day O'Connor U.S. Courthouse, 401 West Washington Street, Phoenix, Arizona 85003. Unless otherwise ordered, time for trial each day shall be from 9:00 am to 12:00 noon and from 1:30 pm to 4:30 pm.

         The Court and counsel discussed the Proposed Joint Final Pretrial Order (Doc. 43), filed July 12, 2018. The Court approves and adopts the Proposed Joint Final Pretrial Order as the Pretrial Order, subject to the following corrections and instructions regarding the allocation of trial time, a corrected exhibit list and deposition designations.

         1. The parties are advised that the trial time will be allocated between them and the time for each side will be measured by a clock. Plaintiff will be allowed twelve hours to present its case, including direct and cross-examination of witnesses, opening statements, and closing arguments. Defendant will be allowed four hours to present its case, including direct and cross-examination of witnesses, opening statements, and closing arguments. Counsel may check with court staff throughout the trial to determine the amount of time they have used.

         2. The parties must file an amended exhibit list, and deliver the exhibits to the Court, no later than five days before trial. The parties must number and mark exhibits in accordance with the instructions found in Exhibit Procedures at www.azd.uscourts.gov under Judges' Information/Orders, Forms and Procedures/Bridget S. Bade. The parties stipulate that they are not asserting objections to exhibits based on foundation or authenticity.

         3. The parties must submit copies of the depositions that may be used at trial. The portions to be read or submitted at trial have been identified by page and line number in the final proposed pretrial order. The party offering the deposition must provide the Court with a copy of the offered deposition testimony no later than five days before trial. The offering party must highlight, in color, the portions of the deposition to be offered (indicating Plaintiff's designation in yellow and Defendant's designations in blue). The parties agree that Defendant's expert, John Scott Davenport, will testify in person at trial and that his testimony will not be presented by deposition. The parties also agree that Plaintiff may present the testimony of its employees Dagmar Marti Gude and Mary Ann O'Connor by deposition, as designated in the proposed final pretrial order.

         The Court will not allow the parties to offer any exhibit, witness, or other evidence that was not disclosed in accordance with the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and listed in the Proposed Joint Final Pretrial Order, except to prevent manifest injustice. Any objections that are not specifically raised in the Proposed Joint Final Pretrial Order are waived.

         As stated on the record at the final pretrial conference, the Court denies Defendant's Motion to Extend Deadlines (Doc. 45), Defendant's Motion in Limine to Preclude Plaintiff's Evidence of Damages (Doc. 46), Defendant's Motion in Limine to Preclude Plaintiff's Exhibits (Doc. 47), and Defendant's Motion in Limine to Preclude Plaintiff's Witnesses. (Doc. 48.)

         Counsel must review the Court's statement of Trial Conduct and Decorum before trial. A copy can be found on the Court's website at www.azd.uscourts.gov under: Judges' Information/Orders, Forms and Procedures/Bridget S. Bade.
