PFIZER INC., ET ANO. PLAINTIFFS,
STRYKER CORPORATION, DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Lewis A. Kaplan, District Judge
The Court will conduct an evidentiary hearing on defendant's motion for sanctions pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1927 and its inherent power on April 1, 2003 at 9:30 a.m. As the historical facts appear to be entirely or largely undisputed, the parties should focus on whether plaintiffs and/or their counsel acted in bad faith in the respect(s) claimed by defendant. The parties are to advise each other and the Court promptly of the identities of the witnesses they intend to call and should exchange premarked copies of proposed exhibits in advance of the hearing. Further, defendant is to notify plaintiffs and their counsel, in writing, of precisely which individuals and/or entities they seek sanctions against and of the basis for the request as to each. A copy of that notice shall be filed with the Court.
The Court has allotted no more than one day for the hearing.
