Re: U. S. v. Julian Heicklen 10 Cr. 1154

Judge Wood:

    I have received your ORDER of February 2, 2012 indicating that discussion of my motions will be on February 15, 2012.   Also I received a copy of the request by the U. S. Attorney of February 10, 2012 to delay the hearing until March 19 or 21, 2012.  I refuse to accept the delay request from the U. S. Attorney.   

    She had the opportunity to respond to my Motions submitted on November 29, 2011, but chose not to do so, indicating no objections.  She was prepared to discuss the motions on January 9, 2012.  The hearing was rescheduled for February 15, 2012, because of my absence on January 9, 2012, since there was nothing to discuss. This gave the prosecution even more time.

    Obviously the prosecution needs no further time to prepare for the hearing.  The only purpose is to drag this trial on to keep Defendant under indictment.  Amendment VI of the U. S. Constitution requires that:  “In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial,...”  The time for a speedy trial varies from jurisdiction to jurisdiction, but is always no more than 6 months, as far as I know.  In California State courts it is 30 days.

    I was indicted on November 10, 2010.  It is now over 15 months since indictment, so already I have been denied my right to a speedy trial as required by Amendment VI of the U. S. Constitution.  This is not a privilege, it is a right.  No place in the U. S. Constitution is there a requirement that I ask for a speedy trial. I know that your understanding of the English language is defective.  What that means is that you have failed in your judicial duty.

    Therefore, I make the following DEMANDS:

The hearing on the motions be held prior to February 25, 2012.  I expect these motions to be approved, since the prosecution has not presented any argument to the contrary.
The names and addresses of people that I intend to interview, as stated in the MOTIONS that I submitted on November 29, 2011, be provided to me by March 1, 2012, so that the defense can issue subpoenas.
A list of dates in April, 2012 suitable for the interviews in the courthouse in the presence of a court reporter and a person who can and will place the interviewees under oath.
A new master jury list for preparing the jury pool be prepared by the Clerk of Court prior to March 7, 2012.  The current list of registered voters is not valid for three reasons:
Voters are not representative of the all the people in the jurisdiction.
Specifically, felons are excluded from voting.  This violates Statute 18 U.S.C. § 243, which requires that no person be disqualified for previous servitude.  
It also violates Statute 28 U. S. C. § 1861, “... all citizens shall have the opportunity to be considered for service on grand and petit juries in the district courts of the United States,...”
The master list should contain the names and addresses of all persons 18 years or older living in New York County.  Such a list can be obtained from the U. S. Postal Service.
 A copy of the master jury list must be submitted to the litigants by March 15, 2012.

    I will consider failure to meet any of these timelines as dismissal of the charges and closure of the case.

Yours in disgust,


Julian Heicklen
