DC – US v Class – Latest filings

Document 136 reads:

The parties also request that the court set a new trial date of October 27, 2014, and convert the current September 9 proceeding to a status conference.. The purpose of the continuance is to allow the parties to engage in negotiations to possibly resolve the case. Mr. Class agrees that the time until October 27, 2014, is excludable under 18 U.S.C. § 3161(h)(1)(G) & 3161(h)(7)(A).

Date Filed # Docket Text
08/27/2014 Rodney Class has filed a motion 108 for permission to subpoena witnesses. However, Class has shown nothing preventing him from adhering to the procedures that a defendant must follow under Federal Rule of Criminal Procedure 17 and Local Criminal Rule 17.1 in order to have witnesses appear for testimony. Absent a showing that he has been precluded from following the procedures set forth in the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure and the Local Criminal Rules, there appears to be no need for any order granting Class permission to do what our rules allow him to do already, and his motion is moot. Accordingly, it is hereby ORDERED that Class motion 108 to subpoena witnesses be, and hereby is, DENIED. Signed by Chief Judge Richard W. Roberts on 8/27/2014. (lcrwr3) (Entered: 08/27/2014)
08/28/2014 135 LEAVE TO FILE DENIED – Objection to Judge Richard W. Roberts “Leave to File Denied” Order of 6/20/14, Docket No. 120 by RODNEY CLASS. This document is unavailable as the Court denied its filing. “Leave to file DENIED” Signed by Chief Judge Richard W. Roberts on 8/26/14. (mlp) (Entered: 08/28/2014)
08/29/2014 136 Unopposed MOTION to Continue Trial by RODNEY CLASS. (Attachments: # 1 Text of Proposed Order)(Kramer, A.J.) (Entered: 08/29/2014)

  1. Rod asked for a continuance since he is working on a plea bargain. In other news, the prosecutor had failed to respond to two motions and the judge has issued an order to show cause.

    Sloppy but given the amount of filings that were rejected, not totally inexcusable.
