                        D.            At least 60 days before the pre-trial conference, counsel for each defendant shall serve a list of the names and addresses of all non-parties defendant intends to request the Court to include on the verdict form.

COMPLETION OF DISCOVERY

            4.            All depositions and discovery, including all examinations of persons conducted pursuant to Fla.R.Civ.P 1.360, must be completed prior to the pre-trial conference.  All reports of any examination conducted pursuant to Fla.R.Civ.P 1.360 shall be served no later than three days prior to the pre-trial conference.  Depositions and discovery after the pre-trial conference shall be permitted only as agreed by all parties or as allowed by order of the court.  However, the deposition of any examiner pursuant to Fla.R.Civ.P 1.360 shall be allowed without order of court any time within 30 days of service of their report and more than seven days prior to the date trial is scheduled to commence.

            5.            At the deposition of any expert witness taken within 30 days of the pre-trial conference and in answering any interrogatories concerning expert witnesses which were served by the party submitting such interrogatories within 45 days of the pre-trial conference, all expert witnesses shall provide, and all parties shall provide (1) complete information regarding the witness’ qualifications as an expert; (2) the subject matter upon which the expert witness is expected to testify; (3) the substance of the facts and opinions to which the expert witness is expected to testify; and (4) a summary of the grounds for each opinion.  If the expert is not prepared to fully testify regarding such matters at a deposition scheduled within 45 days of the pre-trial conference or if a party does not provide complete information regarding such matters in answering interrogatories served within 45 days of the pre-trial conference, the court will consider excluding the testimony of the expert at trial or, in the alternative, limit the testimony of the expert to those matters revealed at any such deposition or in answers to any such interrogatories.  Pursuant to Fla.R.Civ.P 1.280(b)(4)(C), the party seeking this discovery shall pay experts a reasonable fee for the time spent in responding to discovery and pay the responding party a fair part of the fees and expenses reasonably incurred by the responding party in obtaining facts and opinions from the expert, such payment to be made after an expert deposition or service of expert interrogatory answers.

Fla.R.Civ.P 1.200.

11.            At the pre-trial conference, each pro se litigant will appear and each party will be represented by at least one of the attorneys who will attend trial, unless the court is informed prior to the pre-trial conference that all attorneys who will attend trial on behalf of a party have unavoidable scheduling conflicts and the nature of such conflicts.  In such case, another attorney may attend the pre-trial conference on behalf of the lawyer who has the unavoidable conflict.

12.            At the pre-trial conference, counsel and pro se litigants shall be prepared to negotiate settlement at the pre-trial conference.  Counsel shall have full authority to make stipulations and to settle the case at the pre-trial conference or have available by telephone, or in person, a party or representative who does have full authority to settle.

NOTICE REGARDING SCHEDULING OF EXPERT WITNESSES

FOR TRIAL TESTIMONY TO BE SERVED WITH TRIAL SUBPOENAS

            Many different cases are set for civil jury trial by the Court on the same day at the same time.  Usually all cases are scheduled to begin at 9:00 a.m. on Monday mornings.  Consequently, the lawyer requesting your testimony at trial in this case will not know when during a one or two week trial period your testimony will be needed.  It is for this reason that experts are subpoenaed for the trial period and a definite time for your testimony is rarely able to be set in advance.  The expert is, therefore, placed on “standby” or “alert” status.  The lawyer will periodically keep you advised as to the progress of the trial so that you will have as much advance notice as possible, hopefully resulting in a minimal disruption to your routine schedule.  If you have been subpoenaed for trial and it is subsequently determined that your testimony will not be needed, the lawyer will notify you as soon as that determination has been made.  If you are going to be unavailable during the trial period, you should immediately notify the lawyer subpoenaing you so that lawyer may take action he or she deems appropriate.
