McArthur v. Rock WoodFired Pizza & Spirits

United States District Court, W.D. Washington, Seattle

April 14, 2017

JENNIFER McARTHUR, Plaintiff,
v.
THE ROCK WOODFIRED PIZZA & SPIRITS, et al., Defendants.

          ORDER GRANTING IN PART AND DENYING IN PART DEFENDANTS' MOTIONS IN LIMINE

          RICARDO S. MARTINEZ, CHIEF UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE

         I. INTRODUCTION

         This matter comes before the Court on Defendants' Motions In Limine. Dkt. #98. Plaintiff does not oppose several of Defendants' motions, but opposes others. Dkt. #100. For the reasons set forth herein, the Court now GRANTS IN PART AND DENIES IN PART Defendants' Motions In Limine.

         II. LEGAL STANDARD

         Parties may file motions in limine before or during trial “to exclude anticipated prejudicial evidence before the evidence is actually offered.” Luce v. United States, 469 U.S. 38, 40 n.2, 105 S.Ct. 460, 83 L.Ed.2d 443 (1984). To resolve such motions, the Court is guided by Fed.R.Evid. 401 and 403. Specifically, the Court considers whether evidence “has any tendency to make a fact more or less probable than it would be without the evidence, ” and whether “the fact is of consequence in determining the action.” Fed.R.Evid. 401. But the Court may exclude relevant evidence if “its probative value is substantially outweighed by a danger of one or more of the following: unfair prejudice, confusing the issues, misleading the jury, undue delay, wasting time, or needlessly presenting cumulative evidence.” Fed.R.Evid. 403.

         III. DISCUSSION

         A. Motions In Limine 1, 4, 5, 6, 8, 9

          Defendants have proposed a number of standard Motions In Limine which Plaintiff does not oppose. Dkts. #98 at 2-5 and #100 at 1-2. Accordingly, the following Motions In Limine will be GRANTED:

1. Exclusion of Non-Party Witnesses from Courtroom
