Hello, Thanks for choosing Justanswer.com! I look forward to helping you today. Please give me a moment to review your question and to answer you.
Judges issue a pretrail order or a case management order which detail the pretrial requirements and deadlines. Generally, the time most judges use is 45 days before trial, but that can vary depending on the local (jurisdictional) rules and the judge. You would need to reference the pretrial/case management order to be sure. If you want to see what a Motion to Strike a witness or exhibit or other evidence looks like, this is a good reference here: http://books.g oogle.com/books?id=MhhgpXnUY9YC&pg=PT273&lpg=PT273&dq=FL+how+soon+before+trial+witness+and+exhibit+list&source=bl&ots=yIayRtY5RP&sig=lAUoFKqHkBJ8kLtjh-Xa-vdyews&hl=en&sa=X&ei=ACpfUZG4IIHA9QTz9oGYAg&ved=0CGkQ6AEwBw

Thanks for the response. So if I understand correctly, both attorney's need to inform each other of witnesses and other things they will be arguing? So in essence, an attorney cannot blindside the other side? I will definitely give you an excellent response rating.
great. thank you so much
