Motions Hearing Slated for May 29, 2008

On Wednesday, Joseph Kerekes’ attorneys filed another motion for sanctions (this will be the fourth). Now they're saying prosecutors violated a judge’s gag order by releasing police reports containing statements made by other inmates that had contact with Kerekes.

Defense attorneys also said prosecutors spoke to one of those acquaintances, Robert Rodden, without permission from Rodden’s attorney John Pike. Pike also happens to be one of Kerekes’ attorneys. Joe’ attorneys now want Olszewski to stop prosecutors from using the statements of those inmates at trial.

It would appear that this hearing will occur on May 29, 2008 at 1:30 PM.

Meanwhile Harlow Cuadra's attorneys filed a motion for enlargement of time to file omnibus pretrial motions today, which was granted by judge PPO.
