United States District Court, D. New Jersey
ORDER FOR DISCOVERY AND INSPECTION
FREDA L. WOLFSON, District Judge.
In order to eliminate unnecessary motions for discovery in this case, to eliminate delays in the presentation of evidence and the examination of witnesses, and to expedite the trial pursuant to the provisions of the Speedy Trial Act of 1974,
IT IS ORDERED:
1. Conference. Within ten (10) days from the date hereof, the attorneys representing the United States and the defendant shall meet and confer to seek to resolve any discovery issues prior to the filing of motions, and the United States shall permit the defendant to inspect, and shall permit defendant to photograph or copy, or shall furnish a photograph or copy of:
(a) All statements of the defendant required to be produced under Rule 16 (a) (1) (A), (B) or (C), Fed. R. Crim. P.
(b) Defendant's prior criminal record as required by Rule 16 (a) (1) (D), Fed. R. Crim. P.
(c) All documents and tangible objects required to be produced under Rule 16 (a) (1) (E), Fed. R. Crim. P.
(d) All reports of examinations and tests required to be produced under Rule 16 (a) (1) (F), Fed. R. Crim. P.
(e) All summaries of expert witnesses' testimony, required to be produced under Rule 16 (a) (1) (G), Fed. R. Crim. P. The summaries provided shall describe the witnesses' opinions, the bases and reasons therefor, and the witnesses' qualifications.
(f) Any material evidence favorable to the defense related to issues of guilt, lack of guilt or punishment which is known or that by the exercise of due diligence may become known to the attorney for the United States, within the purview of Brady v. Maryland and its progeny.
(g) If there is more than one defendant named in the indictment, and if the United States intends to introduce into evidence in its case-in-chief a confession made to law enforcement authorities by one defendant which names or makes mention of a co-defendant, then the United States must make a copy of that statement or confession available to counsel for the non-declarant defendant, along with a proposal for its redaction to conform with the requirements of Bruton v. United States. If the government makes no such disclosure and turnover within the time period allowed, the confession may not be received at a joint trial of the declarant and non-declarant defendants. If, within ten (10) days after receipt of the confession and its redacted version, counsel for the non-declarant defendant makes no objection to the redacted statement, the defendant will be deemed to have acceded to the receipt of the redacted statement into evidence.
(h) A defendant who receives discovery pursuant to this Order shall be deemed to have requested such disclosure for the purpose of triggering defendant's reciprocal discovery obligations under Rule 16 (b), Fed. R. Crim. P. The defendant shall have ten (10) days from its receipt of discovery from the United States to produce its reciprocal discovery.
