The magistrate judge assigned to a criminal case conducts the initial appearance, arraignment, and detention hearings in all criminal cases assigned to Judge Springmann and enters an arraignment/scheduling order containing the deadlines for discovery and pretrial motions. Judge Springmann issues a separate scheduling order for the telephonic final pretrial conference and jury trial dates. The trial is generally scheduled thirty days from the date of the arraignment. Plea agreements are to be filed on or before the final pretrial conference.

Judge Springmann must schedule several trials each week. She and her staff strive to work with counsel to avoid wasted trial preparation. Judge Springmann ordinarily reaches every case on the date scheduled for trial.
