JUS 261 Milestone Two Guidelines and Rubric

For Milestone Two, you will submit a draft of the Judicial Administration section of your scenario analysis. Using your assigned reading, course materials, and the

scenario provided below (the same scenario that you worked on in Milestone One and will use for the final project) you will analyze the impact of judicial

administration components—calendaring and docketing, and the roles of court staff and litigation participants.

Scenario

Jed, Herman, and Jane live in Washington, D.C. Jed and Jane entered the local bank and took $65,000. Jed and Herman both used shotguns during the robbery,

though no one was hurt. Jane drove the getaway vehicle. Two hours later, as they headed toward the Canadian border, they were stopped by the police for

speeding and taken into custody. The police determined that Jed and Jane matched the eyewitness descriptions of the robbers. Jane confessed their bank

robbery scheme. Jed and Herman denied their involvement. The police only recovered $25,000 in cash, but were unable to determine if the recovered money

was taken from the bank. The police determined that Jed was a convicted felon at the time of the armed bank robbery. The local police and FBI were involved in

the investigation.

The defense attorneys for each defendant (Jed, Herman, Jane) request a continuance for four months to sift through the evidence. The prosecution objects and

argues that the delay would significantly clog the court’s already heavy workload. In the alternative, the prosecution argues that if the court grants a

continuance, then the prosecution should be allowed to prolong turning over the remaining discovery. The defense attorneys object and argue that this hinders

their effective representation of their clients and would hinder a prompt resolution. The defense attorneys further argue that their clients deserve a well

prepared and thorough defense. The judge currently has trials blocked over the next 10 months and wants to try the case now.
