A motion to exclude all screencapture evidence as incomplete because witness had deleted what she didn't want anybody to see that she said. So the defamatory statements are out of context and my bias the finder of fact against defendants to prove malice.
Plaintiff's response states that any issues related to admissability were handled at the limine hearing and if we feel they are incomplete, we can tell our side at trial. However, because the witness for the plaintiff deleted the majority of the comments before making the screencapture, it's our word against tangable evidence.
Additionally, co-defendants filed separatew motions because DefendantA's screencaptures were addressed at the mentioned hearing, but not DefendantB's, however, Plaintiff only filed a single response to both. An oral objection to the response as insuffient was overuled without the opportunity to present a supporting argument.
The judge gave us 3 weeks to reply to the response, up next week.
Should we file 2 replies, or just 1. We are co-defendants and there are different issues, but this guy keeps grouping us together so he can make general arguments that keep dragging one defewndant along who should nevwer havew been included to begin with.
But he did not. We filed 2 motions. He filed 1 response. We are unmarried co-defendants. He keeps arguing as if we are a single defendant.
