ORDER OF COURT RE: PARTIES' ADDITIONAL MOTIONS IN LIMINE/EXHIBIT OBJECTIONS
Based upon the Court's instructions, the parties were permitted to file additional Motions in Limine and responses thereto by set dates. Four additional Motions in Limine are pending before this Court.
AND NOW, this 5th day of February 2013, after careful consideration of the Motions in Limine pending before this Court (Doc. Nos. 481, 483, 485, 494) and the Responses in Opposition (Doc. Nos. 497, 498, 499), IT IS HEREBY ORDERED THAT:
1. Defendants' Motion in Limine on Causation (Doc. No. 481) is GRANTED. Plaintiff is required to prove that any alleged breaches of fiduciary duty or deepening insolvency caused the damages alleged. Therefore, Defendants may argue that their actions and/or inactions did not cause harm to the Home. However, they may not challenge the specific amounts of proofs of claims.
2. The following Defendants' Objections to Certain of Plaintiff's Rule 1006 Exhibits (Doc. No. 485) are OVERRULED:
P-224; and P-225.
Defendants' objection to the following Rule 1006 Exhibit is SUSTAINED:
P-227 because it does not state that the number is based upon a summation of proofs of claims. Further, Plaintiff may not use the word "minimum." Plaintiff may file a new P-227 on or before February 8, 2013, at NOON.
3. The following Plaintiff's Objections to Certain of Defendants' Demonstrative Exhibits (Doc. Nos. 483 & 494) are OVERRULED*fn1
