This case is set for pretrial conference on [the Thursday before trial], at 10:00 a.m. and set for jury trial on _______________________, at 9:00 a.m. The parties should consult Local Rule CV-16(e) regarding matters to be filed in advance of trial. 9. The parties, however, are exempted from that portion of Local Rule CV-16(e) requiring that three days prior to trial they file "a list disclosing any objections, together with the grounds therefore, that may be made to the admissibility of any exhibits." In lieu of that requirement, the Court ORDERS that, after receiving the final exhibit list called for by Local Rule CV-16(e)(4), the parties confer with each other to discuss, and resolve if possible, any objections they may have to each other's exhibits. The Court further ORDERS that the parties be prepared to inform the Court at the pretrial conference of the exhibits to which there is no objection, and the exhibits to which objections remain for resolution by the Court. The Court will determine at the pretrial conference whether to address at that time any evidentiary issues which may remain, or to reserve those matters for the trial. 10. In addition, the parties are exempted from Local Rule CV-16(e)(1), requiring the submission of questions for prospective jurors. The Court will conduct the preliminary, "generic" portion of the voir dire, but will permit each side a limited opportunity to ask their own questions.
