…To Drug Testing
Earlier this week DC Superior Court Fredrick Weisberg granted an extension to the Wone case prosecutors, giving them more time to respond to the defense’s motion for a bill of particulars. Defense attorneys had filed this motion demanding more details and information on the case, calling the charges in the indictment “vague.” The office of Assistant US Attorney Glenn Kirschner has until April 17 to respond.
Judge Weisberg also gave the defendants a small win by ordering they no longer need to submit to weekly drug testing. Defense attorneys Grimm, Schertler, and Connolly argued that the three housemates have been testing negative since they were arrested late last year and further testing isn’t necessary.
As usual, Legal Times’ Mike Scarcella has the goods. He writes that, “One of the big issues in the case now is whether prosecutors are holding back evidence from the defense. The lawyers recently filed motions to compel discovery.”
The next status conference before Weisberg is on April 24.
