Felon in Possession Trial Moved Up To May 5 in SDNY Jury Said Picked By Lunchtime

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

SDNY COURTHOUSE, April 5 – Samuel Saunders had a jury trial set for June 7 on the charge of being a felon in possession of ammunition. Then it got moved up to May 5.

On April 5, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Lorna G. Schofield held a proceeding. Inner City Press covered it.

   Judge Schofield denied two DOJ motions in limine, to introduce details about Saunders' past conviction for criminal possession of a weapon and an alleged separate weapons transaction.

  Both sides had questions about the trial in a month. Where will it be held? Courtroom 318 in 40 Foley Square.

   Judge Schofield told the lawyers they could go check it out, though if a trial was ongoing there, they would have to arrange to touch the equipment. (Later on April 5 at 3 pm, the doors to all six large courtroom on the 26th, 24th and 23rd floors of 500 Pearl Street were locked). 

 Now long might jury selection take? Judge Schofield said her practice is to do the voir dire in the morning, peremptory challenges over lunch, and opening argument and one or two witnesses in the afternoon. The prosecutors said they will be ready.

The case is US v. Saunders, 19-cr-679 (Schofield)
