Kroupa Criminal Case Status Report (8/26/16)

I just reviewed the docket sheet in Judge Kroupa's criminal tax case.  Nothing exceptional there. The trial is scheduled to commence on December 5, 2016.

I link here the Amended Trial Notice and Pretrial Order.  I recommend that law students review it.  Different judges will have different procedures.  As always, the local rules for the court and, where available, for the judge must be consulted.

Students should think about the scheduling required as a case moves toward trial.  Each of the steps are designed to insure that the case moves along to trial and that the time required by the court and the jury is not unduly extended.

One thing to note is that, for many of the documents, the parties are required to submit the document in Chambers in word format.  This  will permit the judge, her clerks and other court personnel to cut and paste as appropriate into other documents.
