ORDER REGARDING DISCOVERY PLAN PRETRIAL MOTION SCHEDULE
This criminal case charges defendant with FELON IN POSSESSION OF A FIREARM. Trial in this case is currently set for September 10, 2012.
It is the purpose of this order to set a time table for the government's production of designated categories of discovery so further litigation will not be needed. It is the intent of the Court to avoid unnecessary delay in the production of discovery. The parties should continue to work together to provide available discovery to the defense expeditiously and economically. The defendant should avoid filing boiler plate discovery motions where the matter can be resolved by meeting and conferring with the government attorney.
The Pretrial Motion Schedule is binding on all counsel in this case unless otherwise ordered. This order is not subject to amendment by the parties without Court approval. The deadlines set below present the latest dates on which the government has to produce evidence relevant to that category. In the spirit of continued cooperation the Court expects the government to provide discovery prior to those dates when feasible. The government will keep a list of discovery provided to the defendant and the date it was produced.
