United States vs. John J. O’Brien, et al.
1:12cr40026

We are disappointed at the disruption and delay of this trial that has been caused by the defense's untimely recusal motion. The Court's rulings throughout this case have been well-reasoned and based on the law. We nevertheless remain committed to bringing this case to trial as soon as possible. This case must move forward without delay, not only because it is in the interest of justice to have that happen, but because we must instill public confidence in the criminal justice system and limit the continued expense of taxpayer dollars.
