UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA

UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,

Plaintiff,

PHILIP MORRIS USA INC.,

f/k/a PHILIP MORRIS INC., et al.,

Defendants.

Civil Action No. v. : 99-2496 (GK)

Next Scheduled Court Appearance: Trial (Ongoing)

DEFENDANTS’ SECOND AMENDED ANTICIPATED ORDER OF WITNESSES FOR TRIAL

Pursuant to Order #471, ΒΆ IV.B, Defendants submit this amended identification of witnesses in the order in which Defendants anticipate presenting them at trial during Defendants’ case-in-chief on “liability” issues. This identification is based upon the case after issuance of Order #886.1

With respect to the “remedies” issues that will be addressed later in the case pursuant to Order #886, Defendants are not including in this list witnesses who may offer testimony relating to non-disgorgement remedies, and will identify such witnesses as required by the Court.2 In addition, as previously indicated to the Court, Defendants anticipate that a number of the witnesses appearing in Defendants’ liability case-in-chief may also be recalled to testify in Defendants’ remedies case-in-chief.

—-

1 Defendants have previously noted, and incorporate by reference herein, their objections to Plaintiff’s efforts to develop additional evidence during trial. See Defendants’ Memorandum Regarding Non-Disgorgement Remedies Pursuant to Order #875 filed February 22, 2005.

2 Defendants will identify witnesses for their remedies case-in-chief in accordance with the procedures set forth in Order #898 on April 18, 2005. It is likely that one or more witnesses on Defendants’ liability witness list will also be listed on Defendants’ remedies case-in-chief witness list.

**———————————————————

2

Defendants also reserve the right to supplement this order of proof with any of the witnesses previously identified by Defendants on their trial witness list on April 5, 2004.3 The first list identifies the remaining witnesses that Defendants currently anticipate calling for live testimony in Court during the remainder of Defendants’ liability case-in-chief.

The list also indicates whether each witness is being called as a fact or expert witness (or both).

Defendants currently believe that witnesses nos. 16 - 26 on this list likely will not be called in Defendants’ liability case-in-chief but, because of Plaintiff’s refusal to agree to a reasonable process whereby witnesses could be restored to the liability witness list if necessary, Defendants have no alternative but to keep listing the witnesses on this amended order of witnesses.

Defendants will advise the Court and Plaintiff in the event there are changes to the anticipated order of presentation of witnesses during trial.4 Defendants also anticipate scheduling an interim summation at the end of their liability case-in-chief, reserving their second interim summation for use during the remedies phase.

7. Bennett S. LeBow5 Fact

—-

3 Defendants reserve the right to add and call Nancy Brennan Lund as a live trial witness if Defendants Altria Group, Inc. and Philip Morris USA Inc.’s Motion to Reconsider Order #600 is granted.

4 In this regard, Defendants respectfully note that there were numerous instances during Plaintiff’s liability case-in-chief where the order of witnesses changed due to unexpected delays in the examination of preceding witnesses requiring the re-ordering of the presentation of certain witnesses due to issues related to their availability to testify. Indeed, Plaintiff filed six amended lists on ECF regarding the anticipated order of witnesses during its liability case-in-chief. Defendants similarly will advise the Court and Plaintiff’s counsel promptly if and when such issues arise during Defendants’ liability case-in-chief.

5 These witnesses are being offered by Liggett only.

The second list identifies those witnesses who are offered by Defendants by means of prior trial or deposition testimony that remain to be filed and served. In some instances, the entire set of designations and counter-designations have already been offered during Plaintiff’s case-in-chief, in which case Defendants will simply note the prior submission of those designations and objections, as well as identify any additional exhibits that may be offered with those witnesses during Defendants’ case-in-chief. Defendants will identify and serve no more than eight prior witnesses in any given week during Defendants’ liability case-in-chief.

—-

6 Due to his schedule, Dr. Viscusi must appear on April 6, 2005. While Defendants anticipate that the present order of witnesses will accommodate this scheduling need, it may be necessary to interrupt the testimony of another witness to allow Dr. Viscusi to present his testimony.
