, )MEMORANDUM Opinion and Order: While bifurcation is appropriate in many ยง 1983 cases, this one is exceptional. There are no individual officers to prejudice with a joint trial or overwhelm with tangential discovery. For the reasons stated, the City has not persuaded the court that the efficiency of a consolidated trial outweighs the potential prejudice to the litigants. See Houskins, 549 F.3d at 495. The City's motion to bifurcate, ECF No. 47, is therefore denied. A status conference is set for March 23, 2018, at 9:30 a.m. At that hearing, the parties should be prepared to discuss the possibility of expediting discovery on the limitations issue. Signed by the Honorable Joan B. Gottschall on 3/14/2018. Mailed notice(mjc
