          AMENDED FINAL PROGRESSION ORDER

          Susan M. Bazis, United States Magistrate Judge.

         This matter is before the Court following the ruling on the Plaintiff's Motion for Partial Summary Judgment. (Filing No. 41.) Having been ruled upon (Filing No. 56), this case shall resume progression. Accordingly, the following case progression deadlines are ordered:

         1. Pretrial Disclosures. Pursuant to Fed.R.Civ.P. 26(a)(3), each party shall serve opposing counsel and file a redacted version as applicable with the following information regarding the evidence it may present at trial other than solely for impeachment purposes as soon as practicable but not later than the date specified:

a. Nonexpert Witnesses - On or before March 21, 2019: The name, address and telephone number[1] of each witness, separately identifying those whom the party expects to present and those whom the party may call if the need arises.
b. Deposition Testimony and Discovery - The designation of discovery testimony and discovery responses intended to be utilized at trial is not required at this time.
c. Trial Exhibits - On or before March 21, 2019: A list of all exhibits it expects to offer by providing a numbered listing and permitting examination of such exhibits, designating on the list those exhibits it may offer only if the need arises.
d. Waiver of Objections. Any and all objections to the use of the witnesses, deposition testimony, discovery responses, or exhibits disclosed pursuant to the above subparagraphs, including any objection pursuant to Fed.R.Civ.P. 32(a) that a deponent is available to testify at the trial, shall be made a part of the pretrial order. Failure to list objections (except those under Fed.R.Evid. 402 and 403) is a waiver of such objections, unless excused by the Court for good cause shown.

         2. Motions in Limine. Motions in limine (non-Daubert motions) shall be filed on or before April 11, 2019.

         3. The Final Pretrial Conference with the assigned magistrate judge is set for April 18, 2019, at 10:00 a.m. It will be held via Internet/Teleconferencing. A separate order will be entered with Internet/Teleconferencing instructions. (If the parties would prefer to appear in person for the pretrial conference, please email chambers at bazis@ned.uscourts.gov, copying all parties. The in-person pretrial conference will be held in my chambers, Suite 2271, Roman L. Hruska United States Courthouse, 111 South 18th Plaza, Omaha, Nebraska. The final pretrial conference shall be attended by lead counsel for represented parties.) Counsel shall complete prior to the pretrial conference, all items as directed in NECivR 16.2.[2] By the time of the pretrial conference, full preparation for trial shall have been made so that trial may begin immediately thereafter. The pretrial conference will include a discussion of settlement, and counsel shall be prepared through investigation, discovery and communication with clients and insurers, if any, to discuss fully the subject of settlement, including realistic expectations about liability, obstacles to agreement, offers made, and offers which can be made at the conference. Counsel shall be prepared to make additional offers or proposals for settlement in behalf of their clients at the pretrial conference, and counsel shall be prepared to make or opine on recommendations for further negotiations and conferences.

         4. Mediation and Settlement:

a. If the parties intend to mediate their dispute, notice of the mediation shall be given to the staff of the assigned magistrate judge's office. The filing of a mediation reference order will terminate pending motions, without prejudice to refiling. If the mediation is not successful, the moving party may reinstate such a motion by filing a written notice to that effect, and the other parties may respond in accordance with the local rules, regarding the date of the notice as reinstating the response/reply time that remained as of the date the mediation reference order was filed.
b. Not later than two weeks prior to trial, plaintiff or plaintiff's counsel shall serve on Defendant or Defendant's counsel a written, updated settlement proposal. Defendant or Defendant's counsel shall respond in writing to such proposal not later than one week before trial.
c. Notice of settlement shall be given to the trial judge's office as soon as practicable but in any event in time to avoid summoning a jury. If a case settles and notice of settlement is not given in sufficient time to avoid summoning a jury, assessment of jury costs may - and normally will - be made against a party and/or counsel for one or more of the parties. For purposes of this paragraph, a jury is considered summoned for a trial at noon the business day prior to the designated date of trial.
