Motion in Limine 004: policy exclusions, permitting trial discussion of insurance, in a UM-UIM bad faith case in federal court:
Discussion of insurance should be permitted; critical for jury to know, through tangible exhibits, fact that policies are real, who bought them, their coverages, limits, and premiums, and who wrote them.
Existence of liability insurance here not rendered inadmissible by Fed. R. Evid. 411, nor would it prejudice defendants.
Existence of the coverage dispute relevant to same “why are we here” question.
