Trial schedule laid out for American, US Airways antitrust suit

Attorneys for American Airlines, US Airways and the U.S. Department of Justice filed a notice in federal court on Thursday outlining key dates for the antitrust trial that is scheduled to begin on November 25.

The two sides agreed to several dates to exchange witness lists and exhibit lists and pre-trial information, the filing said.

However, they did not agree on two items: how long each side should have to question witnesses on the stand and how many exhibits should be offered into evidence.

The DOJ said it does not want any limits on witness examination or on exhibits. American and US Airways attorneys asked the court to limit exhibits to 400 per side and 30 hours of witness examination per side.

It will be up to Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly to determine if limits will be placed on either.

Keep reading for the complete list of dates for the trial.
