Motions In Limine

As more and more asbestos cases come to trial, the courts will develop standardized responses to the standard motions in limine, dealing with issues such as the admissibility of correspondence or depositions used in virtually all asbestos litigation.113 There are clear advantages to adoption of districtwide rulings. Because of the high likelihood of settlement of asbestos cases, courts generally do not rule on such motions until just prior to voir dire.
