Defendants have not released video footage that supports my allegations. The evidence is detrimental to their defense. I've noticed that literally no two motions in limines are the same and the motion is often titled very specific to the relief.
How should i title this motion in limine, given the aforedescribed circumstance and situation?
You may be better off requesting the court to compel,defendants to produce the tape
"What kind of motion in limine would i need?"
One written by an attorney.
Also, why would you want to exclude the video if it is exculpatory?
This reply is made in response to a question posted on a public message board. This response is for general information only. This response does not create an attorney-client relationship. You have not hired the responding attorney and the responding attorney has not agreed to represent you.
Sounds like you need a motion to compel production, not a motion to exclude evidence.
In limine motions are generally used to exclude evidence. Although you can use an in limine motion for other purposes, most judges will tell you that production of a videotape is a discovery issue that should have been dealt with earlier and they will not grant and in lemony motion which attempts to contact pill the production of the video tape.
You can serve the defendant with a notice to appear at trial that requests production of the videotape, and you can also bring an in limine motion to exclude testimony by the defendants witnesses about the incident that is on the videotape if the videotape is not produced. If you have missed the deadline for bringing a motion to compel production of the videotape, that strategy is probably your best option.
If the videotape still exist, the defendant has probably not produced it to you because you are representing yourself, and they have correctly concluded that you do not know how to compel its production. This is just one of many ways in which you are at a severe disadvantage by representing yourself. If you have a decent case, you should retain an experienced employment attorney to prosecute it.
