NMC: Judge DeLaughter withdraws (or really delays) motion for bill of particulars…

Judge DeLaughter’s lawyers withdraw their motion for a bill of particulars, saying that the issues raised in it may be resolved by discovery. There’s one statement in the pleading on the bill of particulars that puzzled me:

While counsel for Defendant believe that some of the requests contained within the motion for a bill might well raise concerns with respect to Double Jeopardy, it seems appropriate to defer ruling on the motion at this time in light of the government’s suggestion that more discovery is forthcoming.

Reading of the motion for a bill of particulars, I’m not sure what this is about.

Also, the judge has granted the motion to delay a reply on the motion about the grand jury minutes until after a late April meeting between the proseuction and defense counsel
