The lawsuit started with an 81-page complaint filed on September 1, 2011. Trial is set to begin this morning in St. Paul before U.S. District Court Judge Donovan W. Frank (D. Minn.).

Here is Judge Frank’s ruling on the parties’ motions in limine — or threshold motions to exclude evidence thought to be unreliable, confusing, misleading and so on. For example, it will not be ok to refer to Ponzi schemes, Tom Petters, or Enron unless, that is, “either party ‘opens the door.'”
