CRIMINAL COURT SCHEDULE - WEEK OF 9/18/17


THE CAPTAIN REPORTS:

CRIMINAL COURT SCHEDULE FOR WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 18, 2017 .....

Administrative Judge of the Criminal Division, Judge Sayfie, has issued the following information as to what we can expect to take place at the GJB next week:

The cases from our Irma days will be reset as follows: 

1. The approximately 500 in custody arraignments that will be split between Monday 9/18 & Tuesday 9/19.  

2. All AC's will be set Monday 9/19. (we know, this must be a typo)

3. No inmates will be transported for your regular Monday 9/18 trial calendar. If you need an inmate for a speedy case then please let your individual CO know to transport the inmate for Tuesday. Please avoid this if possible because Tuesday's calendars will still be heavy with make-up arraignments.  

4. All trials set 9/11 or on any of the missed days will be set on Wednesday, 9/20 so you can address the trial status/date. Remember that no defendants will have notice. And in many cases the attorneys may not be aware either. These cases are printing so that you can reset them as you wish.  

5. All out of custody arraignments are being reset with time for notice, so likely 2 weeks from today or Monday.  

6. All other cases that were printing for other hearings that did not have future dates already will be printing during the first week of October. This will give you and the attorneys the opportunity to move the date to an earlier date if you wish.
 
Also, a reminder that the courthouse is Closed on Thursday, September 21, for the observance of Rosh Hashanah.

Does anyone know if courts are open Monday? Asking for Odia Burdick.

I guess that means no trials or Arthur hearings for a while. Lots of angry clients languishing at the jails. Oh boy.

I can't wait for the first JA, when I call to try to organize my cases around my life, to say "we only do motions on the 6th Wednesday of February in a leap year."

Honestly, I called and visited a bunch of JA's yesterday and they were very accommodating.
