Case No. 4:01 CR 207

ORDER GRANTING DEFENDANT'S MOTION FOR EXTENSION OF TIME TO FILE REPLY BRIEF


A jury found Defendant Traficant guilty of counts one through ten of the superseding indictment on 11 April 2002. (Docket # 341). On 22 April 2002, Defendant Traficant filed a timely motion for a new trial. (Docket # 347). That same day, a supplemental memorandum to the motion for a new trial was filed on Congressman Traficant's behalf by Attorneys Percy Squire and Lloyd Pierre-Louis. (Docket # 349). The government filed a response to the supplemental memorandum on 29 May 2002. (Docket # 403).

In its 7 May 2002 Order Regarding Representation of Defendant Traficant, this Court decided that Attorneys Squire and Pierre-Louis may serve as co-counsel during post-trial proceedings before this Court for the limited purpose of challenging the Juror Selection Plan of the Northern District of Ohio. (Docket # 357). Thus, the Court accepted for review the supplemental memorandum in support of the motion for new trial, which challenges the Juror Selection Plan of the Northern District of Ohio.

Before the Court is defendant's motion for an extension of time until 12 June 2002 to file a reply brief in support of his supplemental memorandum. The government does not oppose the motion.

Defendant's motion is granted. Defendant shall file his reply brief on or before 12 June 2002.
