Pending before the Court is plaintiff's Motion in Limine and defendants' response. Plaintiff contends that defendants should be precluded from presenting any evidence regarding any of his prior convictions or incarcerations. Plaintiff's Motion in Limine is granted in part and denied in part (#99).

The motion is denied in regard to evidence concerning plaintiff's felony conviction for forgery in Case # 2002-335. Fed. R. Evid. 609(a)(2).

The motion is denied as to any evidence in the form of medical records created during Carroll's incarceration in the Greene County Detention Center in September of 2002.

Fed. R. Evid. 403.

The motion is granted as to any evidence concerning the ultimate disposition of Carroll's case which forms the underlying basis for this 42 U.S.C. § 1983 claim. The Court finds the evidence to be unfairly prejudicial to plaintiff under Rule 403. Id.

Evidence regarding any other prior arrests or incarcerations will be admissible only for impeachment purposes. Id.
