The parties have agreed to submit a list of joint exhibits for inclusion in this pretrial order (as Exhibit 3C) prior to the pretrial conference. (1) The parties have agreed that the demonstrative exhibits that the parties intend to use at trial do not need to be included on their respective lists of trial exhibits at this time. The parties shall exchange copies (using best

efforts to exchange color copies) of demonstrative exhibits and shall make available for inspection physical exhibits to be used at trial, labeled with the exhibit number, as set forth below. Exchange of large boards or

transparencies may instead be exchanged on 8 by 11 inch white paper. Any demonstrative exhibit, except for demonstrative exhibits created during testimony of a witness, shall be disclosed to the other side as provided in sections (c)(3) and (c)(4) below unless the parties agree to alternate arrangements. This exchange of demonstrative exhibits does

not waive any objections to them. (2) The parties reserve the right to use exhibits from either parties' trial exhibit list, even if not separately listed on their respective lists. However, recognizing that a party has a right to object to use of its own listed exhibits by the other side, the parties have agreed that all such objections are preserved and need not be disclosed in advance of trial. The parties reserve the right to offer rebuttal exhibits that are not set forth in their exhibit lists for impeachment purposes or for rebuttal.
