What is a Motion In Limine?

A motion in limine seeks an order from the court that certain evidence may not be presented at trial. In limine is Latin for ‘at the threshold’ and a motion in limine is usually made right before trial. Caselaw and statutes govern the eligibility of the different types of evidence for admission. Usually a motion in limine will argue that the evidence in question should be excluded because it is hearsay, irrelevant to the issues of the case, or unfairly prejudicial.
