ZACHARY AMOS LAMB, Plaintiff,
JACK TELLE, et al., Defendants.
MEMORANDUM OPINION AND ORDER
THOMAS B. RUSSELL, Senior District Judge.
This matter is before the Court upon Defendant Rodney Hill's Motion in Limine to preclude Plaintiff from introducing or attempting to introduce evidence regarding Defendant's liability insurance coverage at any time during the trial of this matter. (Docket No. 78.) Plaintiff Zachary Lamb has not responded in the time period mandated by the Scheduling Order. (Docket No. 29.)
The Court agrees with Defendant Rodney Hill that evidence of existing liability insurance is not admissible pursuant to Kentucky Rule of Evidence 411, which is identical to Federal Rule of Evidence 411. Therefore, the motion is GRANTED and the Court FORBIDS the parties, including their witnesses, from mentioning the Defendant's coverage under a liability insurance policy. If the parties or their witnesses introduce or attempt to introduce any deposition transcript or other documentary evidence that that contains such prohibited evidence, the document must be redacted to delete any and all references to such evidence prior to its use at trial.
