UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT NORTHERN DISTRICT OF NEW YORK UNITED STATES OF AMERICA CRIMINAL PRETRIAL ORDER VS. Case No.: I. NOTICE TO ALL COUNSEL:

Counsel for the defendant is directed to file a notice of appearance in accordance with L.R. 44.2 of the Local Rules of Criminal Procedure with the clerk of the court stating his/her mailing address and phone number. II. DISCOVERY: A) It is the Court's policy to rely on the discovery procedure as set forth in this Order as the sole means of the exchange of discovery in criminal actions except in extraordinary circumstances. This Order is intended to promote the efficient exchange of discovery without altering the rights and obligations of the parties, while at the same time eliminating the practice of routinely filing perfunctory and duplicative discovery motions.

B)

Fourteen (14) days after arraignment, or on a date otherwise set by the Court for good cause shown, the government shall make available for inspection and copying to the defendant the following: 1) Fed.R.Crim.P. 16(a) & Fed.R.Crim.P. 12(b)(4) Information. All discoverable information within the scope of Rule 16(a) of the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure, together with a notice pursuant to Fed.R.Crim.P. 12(b)(4) of the government's intent to use this evidence, in order to afford the defendant an opportunity to file motions to suppress evidence.

2) Brady Material. All information and material known to the government which may be favorable to the defendant on the issues of guilt or punishment, within the scope of Brady v. Maryland, 373 U.S. 83 (1963). 3) Federal Rule of Evidence 404(b). The government shall advise the defendant of its intention to introduce evidence in its case in chief at
5

trial, pursuant to Rule 404(b) of the Federal Rules of Evidence. This requirement shall replace the defendant's duty to demand such notice.

C)

Unless a defendant, in writing, affirmatively refuses discoverable materials under Fed.R.Crim.P. 16(a)(1)(E),(F), and/or (G), the defendant shall make available to the government all discoverable information within the scope of Fed.R.Crim.P. 16(b)(1)(A)(B) and/or (C)(, within twenty-one (21) days of arraignment.

D)

No less than fourteen (14) days prior to the start of jury selection, or on a date otherwise set by the Court for good cause shown, the government shall tender to the defendant the following: 1) Giglio Material. The existence and substance of any payments, promises of immunity, leniency, preferential treatment, or other inducements made to prospective witnesses, within the scope of United States v. Giglio, 405 U.S. 150 (1972). 2) Testifying Informant's Convictions. A record of prior convictions of any alleged informant who will testify for the government at trial.

E)

The government shall anticipate the need for, and arrange for the transcription of, the grand jury testimony of all witnesses who will testify in the government's case in chief, if subject to Fed.R.Crim.P. 26.2 and 18 U.S.C. §3500. The government, and where applicable, the defendant, are requested to make materials and statements subject to Fed.R.Crim.P. 26.2 and 18 U.S.C. §3500 available to the other party at a time earlier then required by rule or law, so as to avoid undue delay at trial or hearings. It shall be the duty of counsel for all parties to immediately reveal to opposing counsel all newly discovered information, evidence, or other material within the scope of this Order, and there is a continuing duty upon each attorney to disclose expeditiously. The government shall advise all government agents and officers involved in the action to preserve all rough notes.

F)

G)

No attorney shall file a discovery motion without first conferring with opposing counsel, and no motion will be considered by the Court unless it is accompanied by a certification of such conference and a statement of
6

the moving party's good faith efforts to resolve the subject matter of the motion by agreement with opposing counsel. No discovery motions shall be filed for information or material within the scope of this Rule unless it is a motion to compel, a motion for protective order or a motion for an order modifying discovery. See Fed.R.Crim.P. 16(d). Discovery requests made pursuant to Fed.R.Crim.P. 16 and this Order require no action on the part of this Court and should not be filed with the Court, unless the party making the request desires to preserve the discovery matter for appeal.

III.

MOTIONS: A) Any and all motions by all parties must be served and filed within four (4) weeks of the date of this Order.
