United States District Court, D. Nebraska
February 12, 2014
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, Plaintiff,
RANDALL DAVID DUE, Defendant.
THOMAS D. THALKEN, Magistrate Judge.
This matter is before the court on the defendant's, Randall David Due (Due), Petition to Compel/Order (Filing No. 270), Petition to Compel/Order (Filing No. 272) and Objection/Petition to Compel/Order (Filing No. 279). The government has filed a brief in opposition (Filing No. 292). The court adopts the reasoning set forth in the Government's brief and finds Due's motions should be denied.
IT IS ORDERED:
Due's motions (Filing Nos. 270, 272, and 279) are denied.
Pursuant to NECrimR 59.2 any objection to this Order shall be filed with the Clerk of the Court within fourteen (14) days after being served with a copy of this Order. Failure to timely object may constitute a waiver of any such objection. The brief in support of any objection shall be filed at the time of filing such objection. Failure to file a brief in support of any objection may be deemed an abandonment of the objection.
ADMONITION AS TO COUNSEL
The court again urges Due to accept counsel to represent him in this matter. It is clear Due has difficulty with adhering to the ground rules of trial practice, and an attorney skilled in criminal trial practice could be very helpful to Due. Previously, the court has counseled Due with the disadvantages of representing himself in these proceedings and does so again at this time.
