United States v. Tremble

United States District Court, S.D. Georgia, Savannah Division

December 6, 2019

UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,
v.
DEVONTE TREMBLE, Defendant.

          CRIMINAL TRIAL MANAGEMENT ORDER

          R. STAN BAKER, UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE

         The Court hereby orders that the above captioned case is set for PRETRIAL CONFERENCE before R. Stan Baker, United States District Judge, at 11:00 AM, on Monday, December 30, 2019, at the Federal Courthouse, First Floor Courtroom, 125 Bull Street, Savannah, Georgia, and for JURY SELECTION AND TRIAL before R. Stan Baker, United States District Judge, at 9:00 AM, on Tuesday, January 7, 2020, at the Federal Courthouse, First Floor Courtroom, 125 Bull Street, Savannah, Georgia. The Court ORDERS the parties to carefully read and comply with the following directives.

         I. General Directions

         In this Order, the Court sets forth the parties' obligations to prepare this matter for trial. It is not the Court's intention to impose needlessly onerous obligations on counsel. Rather, these measures are designed to ensure the just and efficient trial of this case. It is the Court's experience that the administration of justice is better served when the matters addressed herein are resolved well in advance of trial rather than by last minute filings on the eve of or during trial.

         Except where otherwise indicated in this Order, the parties shall electronically file the documents described below using the Court's CM/ECF system. Each filed document should be separately and clearly captioned. When documents are required by this Order to be sent to the Court by email attachment, they should be submitted to the Courtroom Deputy Clerk Pam Hammock at pam_hammock@gas.uscourts.gov. Any questions may be directed to the Courtroom Deputy Clerk either by email or by telephone at (912) 650-4081.

         II. Motions to Continue or Extend

         The Court will only continue or extend the deadlines in this Order upon a showing of good cause. If any party seeks to continue or extend any of the deadlines in this Order including the date of the trial and/or pretrial conference, the party must make that request via a motion filed on the Court's docket. The filing of a notice of a plea agreement alone will not continue or extend the deadlines in this Order. Absent a showing of good cause, a motion to continue or extend the trial should be made at least two weeks before the trial date. Prior to filing any request to continue or extend, the requesting party shall consult with opposing counsel to determine if the opposing party agrees with or opposes the request. Within any motion to continue or extend, the moving party shall state whether the Defendant agrees with or opposes the request and whether opposing counsel agrees with or opposes the request. Additionally, within any motion to continue or extend, the moving party should state whether the period of delay should be excluded in computing the time within which the trial must commence under the Speedy Trial Act, 18 U.S.C. § 3161.

         III. Motions in Limine

         The parties shall file any motions in limine on or before December 16, 2019. The parties shall file any responses to any motions in limine on or before December 23, 2019. Complex trial issues, including substantial evidentiary questions, are better resolved in advance of, rather than in the midst of, trial. Thus, where possible, the Court expects the parties to raise complex trial issues, including complex debates regarding the exclusion or admission of evidence, through motions in limine. However, the Court discourages the filing of form motions in limine or motions about issues the opposing party does not dispute.

         IV. Requested Voir Dire, Jury Instructions, and Verdict Form

         Each party shall file the party's requested voir dire, jury instructions, and verdict form on or before December 23, 2019.[1] Each party shall file any objections to an opposing party's requested voir dire, jury instructions, and verdict form on or before December 27, 2019. In addition to the CM/ECF-filed requests, each party shall email a copy of the party's requested voir dire, jury instructions, and verdict form as attachments in Word format to the Courtroom Deputy Clerk.

         The parties are encouraged to use and refer to the Eleventh Circuit Pattern Jury Instructions in making their requests. For each requested jury instruction, the party should include the full text of the requested instruction and the pattern instruction number or other authority on which the request is based. If a party's requested instruction includes a modification of the pattern instruction, the party should so indicate.

         V. Exhibit List and Witness List

         Each party shall e-mail the Courtroom Deputy Clerk a copy of their witness list and exhibit list as attachments in PDF and Word format on or before December 27, 2019. Parties shall not file the witness list on the record of the case in CM/ECF. At the pretrial conference, the Court will discuss with counsel whether each ...
