Los Angeles County allows amendment to zoning for wildlife rehabilitation, llamas and alpacas


Byline: Troy Anderson Staff Writer

Los Angeles County officials gave animal lovers some good news Tuesday, making it legal to operate small wildlife rehabilitation facilities in unincorporated areas and easing rules for raising llamas and alpacas.

The practice of rehabilitating small wildlife had been illegal in unincorporated areas but legal in the city of Los Angeles.

``I'm ecstatic,'' said Mary Cummins, president of the nonprofit animal rescue organization Animal Advocates, which has a wildlife permit to operate in the city. ``This amendment will help protect the public and save animals.''

Cummins said about 50 people and organizations have been illegally rehabilitating thousands of wild animals each year in the county.

Last year, wild animal rehabilitators saved more than 80,000 animals statewide, including bobcats, skunks, opossums, racoons, wild mice and pack rats, Cummins said.

The new ordinance approved by the Board of Supervisors will allow facilities to temporarily care for sick or injured small wild animals until they become healthy and can be put back in their native habitat, said Department of Regional Planning Ordinance Studies Section official Leonard Erlanger.

The new ordinance also is expected to help relieve the county's overburdened animal shelters.

``We do occasionally get opossums,'' said Brenda Sanchez, spokeswoman for the county Department of Animal Care and Control. ``A lot them are either trapped by residents in the area or injured and we have to euthanize them.''

The state Department of Fish and Game requires all licensed wildlife rehabilitation facilities to show they have zoning clearances before it will grant a wildlife rehabilitation permit.

Before Tuesday's vote, the county did not have a mechanism to provide such clearances.

Under the new ordinance, people seeking to operate such a facility will need to obtain a state permit for the animals. Under the new requirements, the animals also must be indigenous to the county, weigh less than 30 pounds and cannot be dangerous, such as bears and mountain lions.

The provision also limits the number of animals in a facility to 20, but that limit could be waived under some circumstances.

The supervisors also voted to make it easier for people to raise llamas and alpacas in unincorporated areas.

Currently, the county's zoning laws refer to alpacas and llamas as wild animals and prohibits them in light agricultural areas - which essentially precludes Antelope Valley residents from raising the animals.

The new ordinance allows the animals in light agricultural areas and classifies them as pets that can be kept in residentially zoned areas - just like horses, cattle, sheep and goats.

Josias Gonzalez,

I am a real estate appraiser and expert witness with over 30 years of experience in California. I wrote and lobbied to get an amendment to Los Angeles County zoning to allow wildlife rehabilitation in 2006 i.e. Ordinance 2006-0019 amending section 22.08.180 ( http://planning.lacounty.gov/assets/upl/data/ord_drp-wild-animal-ord.pdf ). I wrote and lobbied to change the wildlife policy for the City of Los Angeles so it would comply with Fish & Wildlife regulations in 2004 ( http://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20040824005654/en/City-Los-Angeles-Approves-Wildlife-Policy ). I have been a real estate expert for noise and animal legal cases for 30 years. I am familiar with legally acceptable sound levels and planning and zoning issues as they relate to all types of animals including exotic, wildlife, farm or domestic animals.

I am also President of non-profit Animal Advocates in Los Angeles. Animal Advocates rescues ill, injured and orphaned native wildlife for release back to the wild. We have rehabilitated coyotes, bobcats, foxes, raccoons... We have also rehabilitated a wolfdog with guidance and help from Lockwood Animal Rescue Center. We highly recommend their center.

We have worked with Dr. Lorin Lindner, Matthew Simmons and their veterinarian Dr. Jennifer Conrad for over ten years. My volunteers and I have visited the facility quite a few times. Their facility has always been very well maintained, clean and secure. 

As a real estate expert I can confirm that their facility does not have a negative impact on the neighbors or neighborhood. I support Lockwood's application for a conditional use permit. I am willing to testify to this at the public meeting for the conditional use permit. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions. 

Sincerely,



Mary Cummins

Richie Ramone, Richard Reinhardt, Ramones loses copyright lawsuit


Richard Reinhardt aka Richie Ramone lawsuit, copyright infringement. Richie lost

Abigail Johnson from Wikipedia, free use. Richie Ramone, Richard Reinhardt, copyright, lawsuit
UPDATE: I now see why people are asking me about Richie's old copyright lawsuit. Richie Ramone aka Richard Reinhardt is himself being sued for copyright infringement. I just pulled up that lawsuit which is local. It seems Jiro Okabe had a partnership agreement with Richie Ramone. Okabe would front the money for expenses for the new album and play on the album. Okabe fronted Richie $45,000 for these expenses. Okabe was to be paid back with the first $45,000 that came from the sale of the masters Okabe created. After that they would share the profits 50/50. After Okabe made the masters for Richie's new album Richie signed a deal with someone else. Okabe wants his $45,000, all expenses and also 50% of any proceeds from the sales. The album is currently for sale online digitally. Below is a media article about the lawsuit.

http://www.courthousenews.com/2014/02/05/65108.htm

I noted in the article Tiffany Krog is referred to as his attorney. While she is an attorney she is actually supposedly Richie's fiance. She likes to call herself Tiffany Ramone. If she's giving legal advice to Richie, it's probably bad advice. She has complaints against her bar license and bad reviews online. She also has a criminal record. She states Okabe was just a "disgruntled ex-bass player" who "was fired because he did a bad job." That sounds familiar. I bet Krog took that from *** playbook. If anyone makes a complaint about you or sues you, you just lie and state they are a "disgruntled ex" fill in the blank.

Below is video of Richie Ramone stating Okabe is a great bass player. I see he's also played many concerts with him. Jiro Okabe has been playing professionally for as long as Richard Reinhardt.




Here is a pic of them together from Japan.

For some reason I've been getting emails about Richie Ramone's (real name Richard Reinhardt) lawsuits for copyright infringement which he lost. Seems Richie Ramone is telling everyone he won those lawsuits. He lost those lawsuits. Below are copies of the lawsuit dockets and the court order. You can clearly see he lost.

First a brief introduction to clear up some mis-statements by others. The Ramones formed in 1974 and disbanded in 1996. They were a popular group before Richie ever played with them. Their drummer had some issues with alcoholism so they needed another drummer temporarily. The group the Ramones hired Richard Reinhardt in August 1984 to be a performing artist. There is a 30 pages contract which clearly spells all of this out. The contract is public. So are these documents.

Richie Ramone relinquished all copyright and any and all other rights to the Ramones for any compositions, singing, performances...in present and future formats. He was strictly a hired performer and not a parter. As I look at the copyright site, he is mentioned in a copyright but he owns no copyrights at all. He also doesn't own any trademarks.

Around 1987 Richie felt like he deserved some of the tshirt money. Back then kids went to concerts and would buy the tshirt commemorating the concert. Anyway the Ramones said "you are a hired performer, not a partner. You signed away all rights." Richie was upset so he quit hoping that would force them to give him tshirt money. Instead they called up the old drummer who came back and carried on as before, not even a hiccup.

This of course has left Richie Ramone very bitter and poor. He turned his back on music then went to work in the hotel industry in Los Angeles. I think he did event planning or something at the Biltmore. His wife then was Annette Stark the writer from 1987 to about 2010.

The Ramones not including Richie were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2002. In 2007 they were inducted into another hall of fame minus Richie. In 2011 the Ramones got a life time achievement award at the Grammy's, minus Richie.

This first lawsuit Richie filed in 2003. He lost due to failure to prosecute. His lawyer just stopped responding so the Judge dismissed it. What most likely happened is Richie's lawyer saw his 30 page contract which clearly shows he signed away any and all rights.

http://www.animaladvocates.us/richie_ramone_lawsuit_2003.pdf

This second lawsuit Richie filed in 2007. He lost in 2008 due to failure to state a claim upon which relief may be granted. He did not show copyright infringement.

http://www.animaladvocates.us/richie_ramone_lawsuit_2007.pdf

This is the Judge's order in the 2007 lawsuit. The Judge clearly states there was no copyright infringement because Richie signed away any and all rights to compositions, music, performance in any current and future form. Richie tried to argue that the contract did not cover mp3's and digital music. The contract clearly states any current or future form.

http://www.animaladvocates.us/richie_ramone_court_order.pdf

Below is the 1984 contract. It clearly states Richard Reinhardt is not a Ramone. He is not part of the group. This is why he was never inducted into any hall of fame and did not receive a life time achievement award. He merely attended the event.

http://www.animaladvocates.us/richie_ramone_contract.pdf

Below is Richard Reinhardt's motion opposing the award of legal fees to Defendants. The Defendants stated that Richard Reinhardt has a history of filing frivolous, meritless lawsuits against the Ramones for years. "Plaintiff's 'history of commencing, without success, multiple litigations against the Defendants." For this reason they requested fees. Richard Reinhardt responded by saying he and his wife are too poor to afford the $28,000 in legal fees. $28,000 is actually pretty cheap even though the case never even got started. It was dismissed. Richard Reinhardt stated in the below document "Plaintiff with his wife earned approximately $127,000 in 2007." Richard Reinhardt then submitted tax returns under seal while he was in Scottsdale, Arizona March 2008. Richard Reinhardt filed an appeal then withdrew it October 2009. The Judge did not force Richard Reinhardt to pay legal fees most likely because he couldn't afford it.

http://www.animaladvocates.us/opposition_motion_legal_fees.pdf

Richie has always been very angry about this situation. He is the one responsible for all of this. In fact he owes everything he has to the Ramones. He got super lucky their drummer wasn't able to play and they hired him. Richie even admits the Ramones were a big group before he worked for them. He is the one who decided to quit. HE quit. He should be thankful he was able to play with them.

I remember Richie's ex-wife Annette Stark telling me on the phone how Richie will win millions in this lawsuit. He lost...and it gets worse. The other side asked for attorneys' fees. Richie was forced to state he and his wife are penniless, destitute, don't even own a home. He begged the judge to not make him pay attorneys fees by saying I believe that he will file for bankruptcy if the Judge orders him to pay fees.

Even after all of this was written up in articles and such Richie Ramone is telling everyone he won the copyright lawsuits. No, he did not. I just looked at his wiki page! Someone edited it to read that he won the lawsuit. Then they quote a source...that does not exist. The link goes nowhere. I bet I know who did that. I also see that "someone" (Krog?) has been falsely editing the Ramones wikipedia page giving Richie credit for things he never did.

And how did I get involved in all of this? I was interviewed for a story on LA Animal Services by Richie's ex-wife Annette Stark. She is mentally ill. One second she said "you're my only friend in LA. You're the only sane person in LA..." Next second she's yelling at the top of her lungs "I will kill you, you mother f....!" Next second "I'm sorry. I just get a little stressed when my assignments are due. Oopsie." Next second, well, you can guess. She also threatened the Mayor of LA, General Manager, Deputy Mayor, Mayor's daughter, City Attorney... Oddly enough Tiffany Krog was her best friend. Now Tiffany is Richie's fiance. These people are very, very strange.

Interesting find. Richard Reinhardt lies about his age. He was born in 1956, not 1957. He admitted his true age in 1986 and 1987 in a copyright filing by Dee Dee and telephone directories when he lived in Brooklyn, New York. Why lie about one year?


Richie Ramone, Richard Reinhardt born August 11, 1956


Richie Ramone, Richard Reinhardt born August 11, 1956
Below is a video of bitter Richard Reinhardt in a suit ragging on the members of the Ramones. He really changed up his look.




Here's another look for Richard Reinhardt. When he played with an orchestra, he said he wanted to do that kind of music until he died. Then he said the economy hit. Orchestras are funded by donations. He couldn't make any money doing that. This is what he wore. It looks like Dieter's Dance Party. He even told the media that he is a classically trained musician who started classical drum training at the age of four. He said he toured as a musical child genius at age 11. Who is to say what's the truth.

This is rich. An interviewer asked him if he left the Ramones because of an issue with tshirt money. We all know this is true. Richard's answer is "I have my own line of Richie Ramone tshirts now that I sell." And what are his tshirts? Knock-offs of the Ramones tshirts. Almost identical logo. How original. He swapped a baseball bat for drum sticks.

Richie Ramone v The Ramones logos. Almost identical.
I just went to iTunes to listen to the new album. I can't understand what he is yelling. They will need subtitles. The only ones that people seem to be listening to are cover songs from the Ramones.

Just read that Richard played with the Ramonas which is a female Ramones cover band. He also played with other Ramones cover bands. 
Richard Reinhardt, Pasadena Pops, Richie Ramone

Richard Reinhardt goes on to say he's still an active animal activist and rescuer in Los Angeles. No, he's not. He said he only gets puppies from the shelter so they are not effed up by other people. Everyone wants puppies. They don't need homes. Adult dogs need homes. He's not saving any animals.

He also says he speaks in City Hall about abolishing the animal auctions. Every once in a great while someone dumps a purebred puppy they got as a gift. Many people see it and want it. They auction it as it is city policy. The money goes to the department to spay and neuter animals. If he doesn't want to buy a dog at auction, he should buy a less desirable dog. A dog at auction doesn't need a home. It has many potential homes. He hasn't spoken at LA Animal Services Commission but once back in 2005, almost ten years ago. He didn't change the policy.

I remember his wife Annette Stark telling me that he will speak at the commission. She said she will "alert the media" who should "pack the room" because "he's Richie Ramone." No media showed up at all. No media covered the story. I had to show Richard how to fill out a speaker card. He didn't even have a pen. He just said "auctions are wrong." I have my notes from the meeting around here somewhere. I also have Annette Stark's many, many bizarre and crazy emails. I even have some from Richard.

A quick story. Richard went to the shelter and saw a german shepherd mix puppy with a broken leg. He told me he wanted it but asked me to keep it for two weeks to get it over kennel cough and get it vet care for the leg. He said he was worried his dogs might knock it over. He totally lied to me. So did his wife Annette Stark. After I bailed the dog, took care of vet issues, potty trained, leash trained.... they didn't want it. I had to guilt them into giving me the $86 to bail the dog. Then they said they just wanted to save it and never intended to keep it. I could have saved three dogs with the time, money I spent on that dog. That dog ended up with a great home but it took a while. It was a mutt shepherd mix.

On top of all of this Richard Reinhardt eats lots of meat. No real animal activist or rescuer would eat meat or wear leather. There are humane alternatives. I believe Richard Reinhardt is a fraud.

Mary Cummins v Jason Simas lawsuit. Mary Cummins received permanent restraining order on Simas


I'm making this post because a certain crazy lady lied and stated I did not get a restraining order on Jason G. Simas. Yes, I did. I got a temporary and permanent restraining order against him. (I am talking about Jason Grant Simas born in Kings County, California July 25, 1961 son of Joseph Simas and Julianne Waite, 5'6" tall bald but had brown hair, brown eyes I think, used to wear thick glasses who moved to Lemoore, California to live with his mother in 2007, considers himself an artist, went to college, works with ipura. Here's a link to his LinkedIn page https://www.linkedin.com/in/jasonsimas  ) There are a few Jason Simas in California which is why I make this distinction.

I lived at 359 N. Sweetzer Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90048 from 2000 to 2008. Jason Simas lived at 353 N. Sweetzer in a house that had missing windows, doors, major roof damage and had been open to the elements for ten years. The real owner of the house was a Japanese man who lived in Japan. His girlfriend who was the previous owner of the house rented his house out for him to Jason Simas. The man died with children who would have been entitled to his house. The girlfriend never told the descendants about the house. She concocted a scheme with Jason Simas to steal the house. 

Jason hired an attorney to file a quit claim on the house from the previous owner to Jason Simas. The court denied it of course. Jason Simas told me he paid his attorney $6,000 to file the quit claim which is a one page form. I stupidly told him that a quit claim won't help him get the house and it'd only cost $10 to file it at that time. 

Jason Simas was upset at his attorney about ripping him off. His attorney told him I'm a liar which of course is not true. The attorney then files a lawsuit against the dead Japanese man. He did not reply -- because he's dead -- and Jason Simas won the house by default. He agreed to give I think $120,000 or so to the girlfriend of the dead owner. They knowingly stole the house.

Jason Simas then refinanced every penny out of the house. I think he took out $900,000 total. He fixed up part of the house even though Building and Safety had basically condemned it. It was exposed to the elements for over ten years. Wild animals lived in the house. The garage collapsed onto my property taking out part of my fence. Jason Simas then threatened the building and safety inspector. The inspector then allowed him to just put a new roof on and cover the walls with another layer of I think plywood and drywall. 

Jason Simas originally asked me out on a date. I told him very politely no thank you because I have a boyfriend who lives with me. He instantly covered his ears while yelling "LALALALALA......!" and walked quickly into his house. That's when I knew he was not just eccentric but full on crazy. He hated me and my husband from then on. 

He took a sledgehammer to my house which I videotaped. The Court made him pay for repairs. He tore down my fence and gazebo. He stabbed a machete through the fence at me. He stabbed hedge shears through the fence aimed at my then husband. He hit me in the head with a broom. He destroyed my video surveillance cameras which the Judge told me to install. I also saw him rip an elderly man out of a car and beat him up because he thought the elderly man was tailgating him as he slowed to enter his driveway. I saw him smoking pot with underage boys. I saw him selling pot from his home sometimes to people who were totally drunk. He used to hold his hands like a gun and pretend to shoot my husband. He even did it in court. He followed my husband to work. He followed me to the market. He would chant my name "Mary Cummins" in a high pitched operatic voice on my property over and over. He would yell "UGLY LITTLE FAT PEOPLE! UGLY LITTLE FAT PEOPLE!" for an hour or so while working in his yard. He would paint large 8' x 8' paintings of him as a caricature with famous people also as caricatures. After he painted 12 or so he'd hire a guy to take them to the dump. He had a mannequin in his back yard set up like a rape scene. Whenever I went into the back yard he'd get up on the roof of his house and pretend? to jack off. I have photos. My lawyer also saw it. He would sit at Kings Road Cafe ranting about issues to people for hours. He ranted for hours about a real estate agent who put American flags on our front parkways on July 4. He would call gay people "faggots" and "homos" which makes no sense because we lived in a totally gay neighborhood. His neighbors were gay and they were fantastic and kind to him.

Jason Simas told the court I "stole" his mail. The mailman would incorrectly deliver his mail to me. I would go put it in his box. He said "thank you." I never stole his mail. After he acted crazy I would just write "return to sender" on it and leave it in my mailbox. He also said that I hosed down his house every morning at 4:00 a.m. His house would be covered with morning dew just like mine because of our pitched tile roofs. I never hosed his house. My husband and I never threatened him. My husband was 6'6". Jason Simas is smaller than me, 5'6". My husband would have loved to have threatened or done even more but he restrained himself. We most certainly didn't eavesdrop. Our houses were five feet apart. The sound dynamics were such that I heard every sound he made in his house because he kept his windows open as he had no AC. He said I threw a brick through his window. I couldn't throw a brick if I wanted to as I have the worst throwing arm in history. He was staring at me menacing while walking toward me. He ran into his own French door with glass window panes. He broke it himself. Unfortunately my laborers were there with me and laughed at him which set him off.I never tried to build a fence on his property. I had a survey done and survey markers placed. I owned the fence and another foot on the other side. I put a new fence totally on my property. He was then pissed because his driveway was too narrow to get a car down. He also hacked down my bushes, old fence, part of my gazebo. He's a totally crazy person who is physically violent.

After Jason Simas stabbed a machete through the fence at me I filed for a temporary restraining order. I won the temporary restraining order. Jason Simas replied with an insane counter suit filed by an attorney. A couple of weeks into the proceedings Jason Simas assaulted his attorney as per his attorney. His attorney then filed to withdraw as his attorney stating that Jason Simas was mentally ill and assaulted him. I told his attorney from the beginning that Jason Simas is a manic depressive with schizophrenic tendencies who is violent. He's only okay when he's loaded on marijuana. 

Jason Simas told the court he gave his attorney $30,000 to sue me. It was one filing. He got ripped off again. Judge George Wu heard our case and I won a permanent court order against Jason Simas. He violated it twice. I went back to the judge as instructed both times. Judge Wu let him slide when he damaged my new fence and hit me. When I called the police and reported it they told me to shoot him next time he's on my property. I bought a gun with a gun permit. The city sent us to a mediator and Jason had to pay for the damage he did to my house.

Jason Simas violated the restraining order even more. I gave up going back to the court. Then Jason Simas attacked another woman. Her boyfriend beat the shit out of him in his driveway. Oddly enough Jason Simas left me alone after that. 

Jason Simas was foreclosed upon and lost the house. A guy bought it for $950,000 in foreclosure in 2007. He bought a piece of shit house at the peak of the market and dumped a ton of money into it. I sold my house March 2008. Jason Simas moved in with his mother up north.

Here are photos of mentally ill Jason Simas and his piece of crap home. There are also photos of what he did to my fence.

Jason Simas on the roof of his house just so he can look at me. Generally he'd jack off while looking at me. I would carry a camera whenever I went outside so he wouldn't do that. 

My house on the left, his piece of crap house on the right. He tore down my ivy fence so he could peep at me. so I had to build a new one.

Jason Simas destroyed my fence. What's even crazier is this is the side he has to look at. Unfortunately his spray paint came through the slats and ended up on my side.

He lost it in foreclosure for $951,446 11/14/2007. Trust deed company sold it to Brent Habeck 12/21/2007 for $950,000.

I dug up Jason Simas' lawsuits. Below is the lawsuit where he basically steals a home from a dead man's family in Japan. He sued a dead guy who of course did not respond. That's how he was able to steal the house from the heirs. They didn't know about it.

Mary Cummins wins Ashton Technology, Frederic Rittereiser lawsuit


Judge Flora Barth Wolf's final ruling. I won. The case was dismissed for lack of jurisdiction. Then the company went bankrupt as I predicted. Judge Flora Barth Wolf was a wonderful judge. She was fair, kind and didn't put up with crap from Plaintiffs. Plaintiffs refused to give me copies of documents and refused to communicate with me. Before the only hearing I attended in person Plaintiffs' attorney swore to me "on the life of my wife and child" that if I went into that court room, I would lose. He offered me hush money. He said "talk about Asthon Technology all you like, but we'll give you money if you shut up about Freddie." I refused the hush money, went into the hearing and won. Judge reprimanded attorney for refusing to give me copies of documents and refusing to communicate with me (except for the one chat before the hearing).

61-01062261 UPON CONSIDERATION OF MARY CUMMINS' MOTION TO DETERMINE PRELIMINARY OBJECTIONS, THE MEMORANDUM OF LAW IN SUPPORT THEREOF, AND PLAINTIFFS' RESPONSE THERETO, AND THIS COURT FINDING THAT MARY CUMMINS LACKED SUFFICIENT MINIMUM CONTACTS WITH THE COMMONWEALTH OF PENNSYLVANIA, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED AND DECREED THAT THE PRELIMINARY OBJECTIONS ARE SUSTAINED AND THE COMPLAINT IN THIS MATTER IS DISMISSED WITH PREJUDICE AS TO MARY CUMMINS ONLY FOR LACK OF JURISDICTION. IT IS FURTHER ORDERED THAT PLAINTIFFS' PRAECIPE TO OVERRULE PRELIMINARY OBJECTIONS IS DENIED AS MOOT...BY THE COURT, JUDGE WOLF, 8-28-01.

It is hereby ORDERED and DECREED as follows: 1. Development of Joint Statement of Uncontested and Contested Facts. (a) Plaintiff's Proposed Findings of Fact, Conclusions of Law and Legal Issues for Trial. By 1/18/02, plaintiff shall provide the Court with a narrative statement listing all facts proposed to be proved by him or her at trial in support of his or her claim(s) as to liability and damages. Additionally, plaintiff shall provide the Court with all relevant conclusions of law based upon his or her proposed findings of fact and any and all legal issues presented thereto. (b) Defendant's Response and Proposed
Docket Entry:
Facts. By 2/18/02, defendant shall provide the Court a statement: (1) indicating the extent to which defendant contests and does not contest the plaintiff's proposed facts: (2) listing all additional facts proposed to be proved by defendant at trial in opposition to, or in special defense of, the plaintiff's claim(s) as to liability and damages; (3) listing all facts proposed to be proved by defendant at trial in support of any counterclaim(s), and/or third-party claim(s) if such claims exist; (4) listing any and all conclusions of law which arise from all contested and uncontested facts as proposed by the plaintiff; and, (5) listing for the Court all legal issues presented based upon proposed facts and conclusions of law. (c) Statement of Uncontested Facts. By 1/18/02, the same date as that listed in paragraph 1 (a) of this order, the parties shall submit a joint statement of uncontested facts. This statement is separate and distinct from any other submitted. As such, agreement or disagreement, which terms are defined below, with any proposed fact by a defendant does not obviate the requirements of this paragraph. 2. Identification of Witnesses and Exhibits. (a) Plaintiff's Witnesses. By 1/18/02, plaintiff shall provide the Court with a list of all possible witnesses, including a brief narrative of each respective witness's expected testimony. (b) Plaintiff's Exhibits. By 1/18/02, plaintiff shall provide the Court with a list of all possible exhibits which he or she may use during the course of trial. (c) Defendant's Witnesses. By 2/18/02, defendant shall provide the Court with a list of all possible witnesses, including a brief narrative of each respective witness's expected testimony. (d) Defendant's Exhibits. By 2/18/02, defendant shall provide the Court with a list of all possible exhibits which he or she may use during the course of the trial. 3. Definitions. (a) Narration of Proposed Facts. In stating facts proposed to be proved, counsel shall do so in simple, declarative, self contained, consecutively numbered sentences. In a case with multiple parties, if a fact is to offered against fewer than all parties, counsel shall indicate the parties against which the fact will (or will not) be offered. (The facts to be set forth include not only ultimate facts, but also all subsidiary and supporting facts except those offered solely for impeachment purposes.) (b) Agreement and Disagreement. Defense counsel shall indicate that he or she does not contest a proposed fact if at trial they will not controvert or dispute that fact. In indicating disagreement with a proposed fact, defense counsel shall so set forth those disagreement(s) as explained above. (c) Objections. Objections to the admissability of a proposed fact (either as irrelevant or on other grounds) may not be used to avoid indicating whether or not the party contests the truth of that fact. (Counsel shall, however, indicate any objections, both to the facts which they contest and those which they do not contest.) (d) Individual Positions. To the extent feasible, counsel with similar interests are expected to coordinate their efforts and express a joint position with respect to the facts they propose to prove and to the facts other parties propose to prove. Subject to the time limits above, each party may, however, list additional proposed facts to cover positions unique to it. 4. Annotations. For each proposed fact, the parties shall, at the time of proposing to prove the fact, list the witnesses (including expert witnesses), documents, and (with line-by-line references) any depositions and answers to interrogatories or requests for admissions that they will offer to prove that fact. In his or her response, defense counsel shall, if he or she objects to any such proposed fact
or proposed proof, state precisely the grounds of their objections and, if they will contest the accuracy of the proposed fact, similarily list the witnesses, documents, depositions, interrogatories, or admissions that they will offer to controvert that fact. Except for good cause shown, a party will be precluded at trial from offering any evidence on any fact not so disclosed and from making any objection not so disclosed. 5. Effect. (a) Preclusion of other facts. Except for good cause shown, parties shall be precluded at trial from offering proof of any fact not disclosed in their listing of proposed facts (except purely for impeachment purposes). 6. Sanctions. Unjustified refusal to admit a proposed fact or to limit the extent of disagreement with a proposed fact shall be subject to sanctions. Excessive listing of proposed facts (or of the evidence to be submitted in support of or denial of such facts) which imposes obvious burdens on opposing parties shall also be subject to sanctions.
