The Court then announced its rulings and reasoning into the record; such rulings are memorialized herein. Any clarification and/or modification to such motions, as stated by the Court during such hearing, fully applies to the rulings as stated below, and such rulings do not exclude any clarification and/or modification as stated in the record. The Court ORDERS as follows:
Defendants' Motion to Reconsider Denial of Motion for Leave to File Motion for Summary Judgment of Invalidity (Dkt. No. 121) is DENIED.
I. Plaintiff's Motions in Limine (Dkt. No. 110) and Defendants' Motions in Limine (Dkt. No. 111)
The Court's ruling on a motion in limine is not a definitive ruling on the admissibility of evidence. An order granting a motion in limine is an order requiring the offering party to approach the bench and seek leave from the Court prior to mentioning to the jury the matter covered by the order. Conversely, an order denying a motion does not relieve a party from making an objection at trial.Read The Full CaseNot a Lexis Advance subscriber? Try it out for free.
