Meyer v. Currie Tech Corp.

United States District Court, D. Nebraska

February 12, 2019

MARCIE MEYER and MICHAEL MEYER, Plaintiffs,
v.
CURRIE TECH CORP. and ACCELL NORTH AMERICA, INC., Defendants.

          ORDER

          ROBERT F. ROSSITER, JR. UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE

         This matter is before the Court on the parties' Joint Motion for the Production of Supplemental Juror Questionnaires (Filing No. 172). The parties have also attached (Filing No. 172-1) a proposed Supplemental Juror Questionnaire (“proposed SJQ”). Upon careful review, the joint motion is denied.

         Questions 1 through 10 and 13 in the proposed SJQ are questions already contained in the supplemental questionnaire sent to prospective jurors by the Clerk's Office.

         Questions 12, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 22 and 23 of the proposed SJQ seek information which the Court will, in whole or in part, ask of the jury panel during its general voir-dire examination.

         Questions 14, 21, 24, 26, 27, 28 and 29 of the proposed SJQ will be left to the parties in conducting their individual voir-dire examination.

         Because the parties agree this matter is “complex and the disputed value of the case is high, ” the Court will allow voir dire by plaintiffs as a group and defendants as a group in the amount of forty minutes per side.[1]

         IT IS SO ORDERED.

         Placement of counsel at counsel tables: Plaintiff's counsel shall utilize the tables closest to the jury box and the defendant's counsel shall utilize the tables farthest from the jury box.

         Questioning: Counsel should generally question from the podium, unless the Court otherwise directs. Counsel should always refer to and address witnesses and parties by their surnames absent prior permission from the Court.

         Table microphone: Microphones are placed on each podium, and table microphones are placed on each counsel table. The microphones should be pulled directly in front of and approximately six inches away from counsel. Use these microphones for questioning and making objections. Note that the microphones can be muted for client conferences by pushing the button on the base of the microphone.

         Courtroom audio: Be aware that when you speak in the courtroom during trial and during breaks it is broadcast to Judge Rossiter's chambers.

         Number of jurors: Judge Rossiter generally uses a twelve-person jury in a civil case, unless counsel agrees to fewer. No alternate ...
