July 24, 2020 Opinion or Order Filing 1482 ORDER granting in part and denying in part #1478 Letter Motion for Conference. Application granted in part and denied in part. Pursuant to FRE 201, for the purpose of any motions, the Court will take judicial notice of guilty pleas, consent orders and regulatory settlements, for the fact of their existence but not necessarily for the truth of the facts asserted therein unless a hearsay exception applies, including for example FRE 801(d)(2) (opposing party's prior statement), 803(8) (public records), 803(22) (previous conviction). The application to admit documents into evidence is denied without prejudice as premature because relevance, probative value and FRE 403 considerations are all context specific. The Court expects that the parties will stipulate to authenticity and hearsay exceptions that are not reasonably in dispute.. (Signed by Judge Lorna G. Schofield on 7/24/2020) (ks)
