IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS
December 12, 2006
BETTY FROST, PLAINTIFF,
TECO BARGE LINE, INC. DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Herndon, District Judge
Previously, this Court issued an Order (Doc. 47) on August 15, 2006, which granted Defendant's Motion for Additional Time to File Motions in Limine Related to Plaintiff's Expert's Opinions (Doc. 38). In particular, the Court allowed Defendant "leave to file any and all motions in limine in any way related to Dr. Barry I. Feinberg's opinions in this case within five (5) days of Dr. Feinberg's deposition" (Doc. 47). Now, Defendant again seeks an extension of time to file said Motion in Limine (Doc. 56). Defendant states that it the deposition of Dr. Feinberg was taken on December 7, 2006. However, due to the fact that Defendant has not yet been able to receive and review a transcript of this deposition, it requests an additional thirty days in which to file a Motion in Limine regarding Dr. Feinberg.
The Court GRANTS Defendant's Motion for Extension of Time (Doc. 56), allowing Defendant until January 12, 2006 to file any and all motions related to objections regarding Dr. Feinberg. Any motion filed in this regard should be a Daubert motion (now more appropriately described as a Rule 702 motion) rather than a motion in limine.*fn1
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Signed this 12th day of December, 2006.
David R Herndon United States District Judge
