Judge Miller: Trial Date

The court will confer with counsel before scheduling a trial. Judge Miller must schedule several trials each week, with criminal trials taking precedence over civil settings pursuant to the Speedy Trial Act. Judge Miller and his chambers strive to work with counsel to avoid wasted trial preparation, and Judge Miller ordinarily reaches every case on the date scheduled for trial. Certainty, however, cannot be offered until the eve of trial. Counsel who seek greater certainty should consider consenting to trial before the magistrate judge.
