Hale-Cusanelli wants to change lawyer.
Judge McFadden grants it, says he wouldn't
necessarily do it later in the case. Cases
files to be turned over to "Mister Crisp" by
Mr. Zucker and Mr Wright.
Judge McFadden says Zucker and Wright
can remain in for today's proceeding. AUSA:
The government has produced the most important
discovery about the defendant. But they say
they have not received discovery. What they
are saying is not accurate.
AUSA: Today we gave them body cam video
showing the defendant inside the Capitol. In
terms of plea, we have discussed what charges
would be required, but nothing else. I'm not
authorized for more. US thinks trial would be
AUSA: We will allow them into a
discovery database. This requires a vendor,
for the 400-plus cases. We have received bids
and expect to have a vendor soon.
AUSA: So we are asking for a 60 day
period, and exclusion of time. We cannot
overstate the scope of this case. We have over
2000 digital devices. We have 14,000 hours of
CCTV, and 8,000 hours of body cam. This
resulted in several deaths.
Judge McFadden: Can you just reproduce the
discovery to this new attorney? AUSA: Yes.
It's in a single USAfx folder. Judge McFadden:
Mr. Hale-Cusaneli, this is a practical result
of your decision to switch attorney - I'm
inclined to toll for 60 days.
Crisp: My status as new counsel is
irrelevant. They'd still be asking for 60
days. Let's set a trial date. I'll do what I
have to do to get up to speed. I have a staff
on hand. What trial date were you looking at?
Judge McFadden: How long to try the case?
Crisp: 3 to 4 week time period. Judge
McFadden: In other Capitol riot cases,
attorneys up to speed have been able to answer
and we set time lines. It's your case now, not
Judge McFadden: Do we need to inquire into
jail availability? Do you want it in person?
Crisp: It makes no difference to us. Judge
McFadden: July 6, 11 am. AUSA: Counsel for the
government is not currently located in the DC
Crisp: I have a trial in PA. How about
next week? Judge McFadden: I have a trial that
week. So, Friday the 16th at 10:30. And I'm
tolling Speedy Trial Act time. I'm open to
speeding up discovery, faster than the vendor,
since he's detained.
Judge McFadden: But we can't talk about
speeding up discovery with a new counsel. We
have more on
January 25, here.
