WILFORD: I am sorry, your Honor. The 5 interpreters indicate they can't hear you. 6 THE COURT: With respect to the material sought by 7 the jurors in their note of yesterday, has that material all 8 been assembled? 9 MR. KARAS: It has, your Honor. There was one 10 question that we thought we needed to get clarified. Item No. 11 6, what the jury lists as Government's Exhibit 659, they say 12 the notebook with El Hage's print. 659 was a summary chart of 13 the fingerprint analysis of some of the items. There is no 14 notebook that has El Hage's prints. There is a notebook, 15 there are several notebooks, and there are individual 16 documents with El Hage's print, but there is no notebook with 17 El Hage's print. 18 MR. DRATEL: Also 257A? 19 MR. KARAS: 257 is a map but next to it is written El 20 Hage's testimony. So our proposal would be to put in 21 Government's Exhibit 400 and 420, which is the transcript of 22 the grand jury testimony from 1997 and 1998. 23 MR. SCHMIDT: Yes, your Honor. I am assuming that 24 the transcripts have been properly redacted. 25 MR. KARAS: Yes. 6234 1 THE COURT: Let me put this all in a note to the 2 jury, which I will read to you. 3 MR. COHN: Your Honor, I would ask that all 302's, 4 and I think there is only one 302 in evidence -- two, 5 Government's Exhibit 606 -- 6 MR. KARAS: For the record, Government's Exhibit 306, 7 from Agent Anticev, which they asked for, and from Agent 8 Perkins, Government's Exhibit 1071. 9 MR. COHN: Perhaps the court ought to notify them 10 that those are the only two in evidence. 11 THE COURT: I will. 12 The first matter on this list then is item 6. As to 13 item 6, the answer is that there is no notebook with El Hage's 14 print in evidence? 15 MR. KARAS: That is correct, your Honor. 16 THE COURT: So what do we think they mean? 17 MR. KARAS: That is unclear, if they are looking for 18 the notebook or the individual documents that have El Hage's 19 prints. 20 THE COURT: The next item after 6 is what? 21 MR. KARAS: Item No. 17. 22 THE COURT: 15, all 302 reports? 23 MR. KARAS: Yes, 15. 24 THE COURT: As to item 15 there is only -- 25 MR. COHN: There are only two in evidence, which are 6235 1 Government's Exhibit 6 and 1071. 2 THE COURT: There are only two 302's, 6 and 1071, 3 both of which we are sending in. 4 MR. RUHNKE: Your Honor, I have one question about 5 that, whether they also want the companion notes that go with 6 1071 when they ask for 302's. 7 THE COURT: I have a strict rule: If they don't ask 8 for it they don't get it, and we interpret whatever they ask 9 for in the narrowest way, although we always invite them to 10 ask for more. 11 After 15, the next issue related to what? 12 MR. KARAS: Item 17. What the jury has written down 13 there is GX257A, and next to that El Hage's testimony. 257 is 14 not the Government's Exhibit number for the transcript of El 15 Hage's testimony. They have 420A listed above in item 14, 16 which 420A and B are the transcripts from the 1998 grand jury 17 transcript, and 400R is the exhibit number for the 1997 grand 18 jury testimony. 19 THE COURT: So El Hage's grand jury testimony is -- 20 which is the earlier one? 21 MR. KARAS: For 1997 it is 400R. 22 THE COURT: 400R, that is 1997. And? 23 MR. KARAS: 1998 and 420A and 420B, A being the 24 morning and B being the afternoon. 25 THE COURT: And you are sending them both in? 6236 1 MR. KARAS: Yes. 2 THE COURT: And the next item -- that's it. 3 MR. KARAS: I think that's it. 4 THE COURT: So my note reads: Ladies and gentlemen 5 of the jury, here are the matters you requested yesterday. As 6 to item: 6, there is no notebook with El Hage's print in 7 evidence. Please clarify what you wish to see. 15. There 8 are only two 302 reports in evidence, Government's Exhibits 6 9 and 1071, both of which are enclosed. 17, El Hage's grand 10 jury testimony is Exhibit 400R, 1997, and Exhibits 420A and B, 11 1999, both of which are enclosed. 12 MR. KARAS: 1998 is 420A and A. 13 THE COURT: 420A and B is 1998. That's it? 14 MR. KARAS: That's it. We are also going to send in 15 a box of gloves. 16 THE COURT: Please use gloves when examining items in 17 Government's Exhibit 535A-I, Nike bag. 18 I will send this in to the jury with the exhibits and 19 a copy of their note. 20 MR. KARAS: Two other items, with respect to request 21 No. 4, 402, 535A-I, in parentheses they wrote Nike bag and 22 with contents. Our proposal is to send in the Nike bag, which 23 is Government's Exhibit 529. And then there were separate 24 items that had been removed that were tested, which are in 25 fact 535A through I. So we would propose to put in the Nike 6237 1 bag, which still has clothes and other items in it, 2 Government's Exhibit 529, and the items that were separated 3 and test, which are 535A through I. 4 THE COURT: So it is 535A through I, and what is the 5 other exhibit? 6 MR. KARAS: 529, which is the bag, and the items 7 inside of it. I don't have the exhibit numbers off the top of 8 my head. 9 THE COURT: With other contents, yes? 10 MR. KARAS: Yes. 11 MR. KARAS: Then with respect to request No. 6, I 12 believe your Honor has responded by saying there is no 13 notebook with El Hage's print. There are documents with his 14 present. 15 THE COURT: That is what I say. There is no notebook 16 with El Hage's print in evidence. Please clarify what you 17 wish to see. 18 I would ask the marshals to bring that material with 19 this note into the jury room. 20 The jurors' note of yesterday we will deem marked 21 Court Exhibit Roman I of May 10, and we will deem marked as 22 Court Exhibits B, C and D the grand jury indictment, the 23 court's instructions, and the special verdict form as sent in 24 to the jury yesterday. 25 The press is aware that the United States Marshals on 6238 1 their own initiative have determined to leave the courtroom 2 open during these proceedings and on behalf of the press I 3 express our appreciation. 4 The court has before it the request made on behalf of 5 K.K. Mohammed for discovery material set forth in letter of 6 Mr. Ruhnke dated May 2 and the 10th, and the government's 7 response dated May 7. Do counsel wish to be heard on that 8 request? 9 MR. RUHNKE: I have no desire to be heard beyond what 10 was said in the moving papers. On behalf of the government, I 11 know Mr. Garcia has been handling the issues and he is not 12 here in court. 13 MR. FITZGERALD: If you would like to hear from the 14 government, I have just sent Ms. Grant to beep Mr. Garcia. 15 MR. BAUGH: Your Honor, we would join in that Mr. 16 Ruhnke's request. 17 THE COURT: What I would really like to do is make a 18 list of all the open matters so that we utilize the time while 19 this jury is deliberating and that we do not run into delays 20 or last minute matters. I received two letters from Mr. Cohn, 21 neither of which I believe calls for any action or response on 22 the part of the government. Am I wrong in that respect? 23 MR. COHN: Yes. I have asked that certain evidence 24 that the government intends to offer at the penalty phase, 25 should one occur, be ruled inadmissible. So obviously the 6239 1 government ought to, if they want to respond, be given an 2 opportunity. 3 THE COURT: Is the government prepared to respond? 4 MR. FITZGERALD: Not at this time, your Honor. We 5 told defense counsel that with regard to the photographs we 6 would go through and designate which photographs we might use, 7 and obviously we will not offer anything without showing it to 8 defense counsel first. 9 MR. COHN: No. The two letters that the judge is 10 referring to are the letter about the El Hage incident in 11 court and Pepe as part of the government's rebuttal, should we 12 put forward certain information. I would ask that that last 13 letter be sort of sealed. So I think we ought to deal with 14 that in a different place. 15 THE COURT: Life is complicated enough. Sort of 16 sealed -- 17 MR. COHN: I ask that it not be filed because I don't 18 know -- I see no reason that the press shouldn't see it but 19 later -- 20 MR. FITZGERALD: The order of business today were 21 that Mr. Garcia and I would sit down and go through the 22 letters and let counsel and the court know at the end of the 23 today. 24 THE COURT: We have on our agenda now the Al-'Owhali 25 in limine motion as to the two items, and can we schedule that 6240 1 for Monday morning? Tuesday morning maybe? I don't want to 2 have the -- the leitmotif of the proceedings about which the 3 jury is deliberating now, with the Somalia stipulation which 4 never occurred, there is no reason why we shouldn't address 5 these things. 6 MR. FITZGERALD: Could I let you know after lunch so 7 we can figure out what we are doing? We want to get this 8 resolved. 9 THE COURT: All right. There were issues raised also 10 on behalf of Al-'Owhali with respect to discovery. One was of 11 the military, and then I was asked not to confront that issue 12 because efforts were being made to resolve it consensually, 13 efforts which I certainly encourage. What is the status of 14 that? 15 MR. BAUGH: Your Honor, the military last contacted 16 me on Monday. They said they would give me the information we 17 reduced it down to. I sent them another letter Wednesday. At 18 this juncture it is in the air. I intend to go back and call 19 them right now to find out what is the status. They haven't 20 called me back. 21 THE COURT: I have already set a date for the 22 defendants listing mitigation factors and requests to charge. 23 MR. RUHNKE: Your Honor, I assume that in that 24 package you probably also want our proposed preliminary 25 instructions to the jury, introduction to the penalty phase. 6241 1 THE COURT: On the 17th. That is with respect to 2 both KKM and Al-'Owhali? 3 MR. RUHNKE: That's what you said, yes. 4 THE COURT: It's what I meant. Also on the 17th is 5 the special verdict form. 6 MR. BAUGH: Yes. Your Honor, we have been given 7 today -- this was yesterday? -- the listing of the victim 8 impact information that was going to be offered to the jury. 9 After seeing this we will file a Payne motion as to how much 10 will be added. The victim issue was left open until there was 11 a tender made as to what the government would introduce. The 12 government has now tendered it and we have an idea of its 13 magnitude, so we will have to set a hearing to determine how 14 much the court will permit to be admitted. It is pretty 15 voluminous. 16 MR. COHN: Your Honor, they gave it to us yesterday, 17 Judge. 18 THE COURT: I am trying to set a time -- 19 MR. COHN: I don't want the government inadvertently 20 disadvantaged by giving it to us later than they did. They 21 gave it to us -- I want to be fair to the government. 22 THE COURT: With I am not dealing with the merits. I 23 just want to know what is on the plate. 24 Some of the material that you have sought to subpoena 25 includes things like photographs of wounds. 6242 1 MR. BAUGH: Yes. 2 THE COURT: Don't I have to see what both sides are 3 going to do in that regard? 4 MR. BAUGH: Your Honor, I will make it real easy for 5 you. I won't introduce any photographs of wounds if they 6 don't introduce any photographs of wounds. I am sure the 7 court, having been a trial lawyer, knows it has to attempt to 8 counterbalance what the government has to offer. I am trying 9 to get this information to determine what to counterbalance. 10 Believe me, I do not wish to use any of that unless I have to. 11 THE COURT: What is a reasonable date early next week 12 for me to address that issue? 13 MR. BAUGH: I would say Tuesday or Wednesday. 14 Mr. Garcia is here. 15 THE COURT: Tuesday then, the admissibility of victim 16 impact testimony and exhibits. Tuesday, 10 a.m. 17 On the subject of timing, the jury arrives at 9:15, 18 and the problem -- I realized when talking to the jury 19 yesterday that there is no problem of not deliberating until 20 all the jurors are present because they arrive together. Is 21 there any reason the jury shouldn't start deliberating at 22 9:15? Silence is acquiescence. So the instruction will be 23 that the jury can start deliberating as soon as they are all 24 present. 25 MR. COHN: Your Honor, you left open two issues with 6243 1 respect to the statutory mitigators -- aggravating. Sorry. 2 THE COURT: Mr. Baugh, you also had subpoenas to 3 individuals, and what is the status of that? 4 MR. BAUGH: General Franks, central command, has not 5 been served. Secretary Albright has been served last week. 6 THE COURT: Anything else that is open? 7 MR. RUHNKE: Your Honor, on the issue of victim 8 impact evidence, your Honor did order in January that the 9 United States provide the defense with a bill of particulars 10 as soon as practicable, setting forth their victim impact 11 presentation. I understand that the Al-'Owhali group has been 12 served with that document as of yesterday. I am asking when 13 the K.K. Mohammed is going to get the same documents, seeing 14 that you ordered this in January. 15 MR. FITZGERALD: I think it's coming today. 16 MR. GARCIA: Today, Judge. 17 MR. RUHNKE: That answers my question. Thank you. 18 THE COURT: Should the victim impact issue which we 19 have now scheduled for Tuesday include both Al-'Owhali and 20 K.K. Mohamed? 21 MR. RUHNKE: We would certainly want to be in on that 22 issue, your Honor. I wonder if Tuesday is too early. It is 23 not as simple or as complex as it seems. 24 THE COURT: Why don't we make it Wednesday at 3:00, 25 for both. We have bifurcated, but certainly some of these 6244 1 issues arise with respect to both defendants, and to the 2 extent to which they can be combined, that would be useful. 3 Anything else? 4 Mr. Garcia has arrived. Can we now address the Brady 5 request made now on behalf of both K.K. Mohamed and 6 Al-'Owhali, and the essence of that request is for agreements 7 with the United States, or foreign governments with the 8 knowledge of the United States, that limits the exposure of 9 anything less than death of persons viewed by the government 10 to have been members of the conspiracy set forth in Count 1 of 11 the indictment now on trial. 12 Mr. Garcia, in your May 7 response, you limit it to 13 persons who have been named in death-eligible counts? 14 MR. GARCIA: No, Judge. That was our original 15 response. 16 THE COURT: Have you filed something subsequent to 17 your May 7 letter? 18 MR. GARCIA: No, Judge, but I think our position in 19 the May 7 letter is named or unnamed in death-eligible, not 20 necessarily counts but actions taken in furtherance of that 21 conspiracy along the lines of the Beckfort decision, I think 22 is the correct name, and Feliciano, where they had RICO counts 23 and underlying drug counts, and the discovery had to do with 24 murders or other death-eligible crimes committed in 25 furtherance of the underlying conspiracy. 6245 1 THE COURT: That was a specific narcotics conspiracy? 2 MR. GARCIA: It was a RICO count and underlying 3 narcotics, and I think Feliciano was under Title 18. 4 Feliciano and I think Beckfort added that it isn't only the 5 crime in the one death-eligible count, it can also be other 6 death-eligible crimes in the overarching conspiracy. But in 7 neither case does it say that because it relates to the 8 overarching conspiracy that would entitle the defense to any 9 agreement that the government might have with them. 10 THE COURT: Why? Why not? 11 MR. GARCIA: Because of the language of the 12 aggravators, and I think the government goes through the 13 language in the letter and I won't do it here. The language 14 refers to the offense, the crime. I think Mr. Ruhnke in his 15 letter, his mitigating factors are couched in terms of the 16 embassy bombing or the offense. 17 THE COURT: The government has to live with the 18 breadth of Count 1, and Count 1 is a conspiracy to kill 19 Americans anywhere. Your position is that one looks to what 20 counts? 21 MR. GARCIA: Your Honor, we don't look to any counts. 22 You look to death-eligible crimes or actions, and I think that 23 is what Beckfort and Feliciano said. If that were the case, 24 anyone in Count 1 would be death-eligible. The government is 25 not bargaining away anything. If they give someone a plea to 6246 1 life who is charged in Count 1 as a maximum of life, I don't 2 think that fits into any mitigating factor or what Mr. Ruhnke 3 is asking for. 4 THE COURT: Mr. Ruhnke? 5 MR. RUHNKE: Judge, there is some confusion in what 6 the government is saying. Beckfort dealt strictly with the 7 statutory mitigating factor that others equally culpable in 8 the murder will not be punished by death. That is, clearly, 9 obviously, if the government has made deals with people whom a 10 jury can find equally culpable in the murders who will not be 11 punishable by death, obviously that should be disclosed by the 12 government. What was not decided or apparently raised in 13 Beckforth, or Feliciano for that matter, by the defense was a 14 different nonstatutory mitigating factor, and I can summarize 15 it this way. If there are people who are leaders or 16 organizers or members of this overarching conspiracy as to 17 whom a jury could find a greater culpability than Mr. Mohamed 18 in the general overall plan in terms of being a leader, an 19 organizer or whatever role was played, and that person has 20 dealt with the government and been given a deal that exposes 21 them to less than death, or indeed less than life, in terms of 22 exposure -- and I include in that category people who have 23 made 5K1.1 type deals, where although they may have pled to a 24 life exposure the government has promised to seek a downward 25 departure from that life exposure if the person provides a 6247 1 promise of substantial assistance to the support of others -- 2 it is in support of an argument to the jury that not only was 3 Mr. Mohamed not a leader or organizer of this overarching 4 conspiracy but others who were, not only do not face the death 5 penalty, they do not even face a sentence of life 6 imprisonment, and that is a reason why Mr. Mohamed should not 7 be sentenced to death. 8 THE COURT: What's wrong with that? 9 MR. GARCIA: Your Honor, I think what Mr. Ruhnke 10 starts off with, leaders, organizers, and then he gets to 11 members, I think what he is seeking is any agreement that the 12 government might have with anyone who at any time became any 13 type of member of Count 1 of the conspiracy which the 14 government is not seeking the death penalty on, or a 15 cooperation agreement with somebody like that, and it doesn't 16 fit into any mitigating factors. Mitigating factors, as 17 defined in the statute and as the government went through in 18 its letter and as the language of Mr. Ruhnke's letter makes 19 clear, is the crime, and the crime here, other death-eligible 20 crimes or murders or other acts done in furtherance of those 21 conspiracies. I don't think because the government has 22 charged a larger conspiracy here it makes it any different 23 than the larger conspiracies in the other cases cited. That 24 was a larger conspiracy as well. 25 THE COURT: I don't agree with the government's 6248 1 position on this. I think that that too narrow a definition 2 of what is discoverable here would be inappropriate. The 3 government is not, at least thus far is not invoking any 4 security concerns. If there are security concerns then I 5 should address them in an appropriate fashion. But I think 6 that if the government has entered into agreements -- we know 7 they have with respect to certain individuals -- who fall 8 within the outlines of the conspiracy which the government has 9 set forth in the indictment in the background, which the jury 10 has and will read, the defendants should have the opportunity 11 to consider whether to present to the jury the possible 12 disparity in treatment of equally culpable people. 13 Are we dealing here with a vast number of people? 14 MR. GARCIA: Judge, the government would rather not 15 make any comment with respect to that on the public record. 16 Perhaps we will discuss it and perhaps submit something under 17 seal to your Honor. 18 THE COURT: As I say, if there are security concerns, 19 either to the individuals involved or to the national 20 interest, then we will deal with that as a very separate 21 issue, entirely removed from those in the cases dealing with 22 drug dealers. But otherwise I would grant the discovery 23 requests made on behalf of K.K. Mohammed, joined in on behalf 24 of Al-'Owhali. When can we expect something further from the 25 government? 6249 1 MR. GARCIA: Monday morning, Judge? 2 THE COURT: All right. 3 MR. BAUGH: One last and very brief issue, your 4 Honor. I was reviewing Mr. Fitzgerald's closing at 3:00 this 5 morning, and he made quite a issue to the jury concerning the 6 purposes of the U.S. Embassy, namely whether or not 7 surreptitious spy activity went on there. He argued on 8 several pages that that was one of the motivations of Al Qaeda 9 and that was false. 10 We have reason to believe that there was spy activity 11 going on. You remember I asked Ambassador Bushnell those 12 questions and we were cut off and not allowed to cross-examine 13 on that issue. 14 We are contemplating, only so the judge can schedule 15 court time next week, there is a possibility, in fact a 16 probability that we will ask the government to stipulate that 17 spy activity does occur in those embassies and that is why 18 they have those antennas on top, just to negate some of the 19 impact afforded by Mr. Fitzgerald's argument that that 20 activity does not go on there. 21 THE COURT: I don't recall an argument that that 22 activity did not go on there. 23 MR. BAUGH: I have the page numbers. Unfortunately, 24 I left it back wherever it is I work, but Mr. Fitzgerald said 25 Al Qaeda is of the position that the embassies have been used 6250 1 in the past to get information concerning -- and I am really 2 paraphrasing now. I don't know the exact language, but the 3 bottom line was, it was used to gather information that was 4 used against Al Qaeda. What was what Mr. Fitzgerald argued. 5 THE COURT: And you want a stipulation which says 6 what? 7 MR. BAUGH: That surveillance activity and NISA 8 activity does occur and did occur in Nairobi. I read in the 9 Washington Post this morning that many of these satellite 10 intercepts occurred out of there because the Sudan embassy had 11 been closed. 12 MR. FITZGERALD: Your Honor, my argument to the jury 13 was based strictly on Al Qaeda's perception, not whether it 14 was true or false. I don't think it is relevant whether it is 15 true or false. I am not confirming or denying what Mr. Baugh 16 reads at 3 a.m. in the Post and I don't think it is relevant. 17 THE COURT: You can read to the jury what the 18 government said in its closing argument. If you feel that 19 what the government said in its closing arguments to the same 20 jury that is going to be hearing any further proceedings in 21 this case is pertinent, you can simply read it to them. I 22 don't see the need for any further stipulation. Why don't you 23 simply read it. 24 MR. BAUGH: The United States argued that such 25 activity does not occur. He said that was their impression, 6251 1 and it does. 2 THE COURT: You know, it's been shorter than we 3 anticipated but it has been a long trial and I don't purport 4 to have total recall of all the evidence. I recall some 5 colloquy with respect to the permissible scope of 6 cross-examination of the ambassador, and I recall testimony as 7 to what facilities and what agencies were housed in the 8 embassy. But I certainly don't recall any testimony by the 9 government denying that intelligence activity took place 10 within an embassy. Was there any? 11 MR. FITZGERALD: We offered no testimony confirming 12 or denying, and in argument to the jury we cited Al-'Owhali's 13 statement that his perception was that there was intelligence 14 activity, Christian missionaries and a woman ambassador, and 15 we offered it for his perception and understanding. 16 MR. BAUGH: Your Honor, I will go back and review it 17 and get something to you as soon as possible. 18 THE COURT: Anything else? All right, then. So 19 counsel will either be in the courtroom or defense counsel 20 will be by telephone in the building in their counsel room. 21 We will await further communication from the jury. 22 (Recess) 23 (Continued on next page) 24 (Time noted, 2:35 p.m.; jury not present) 25 THE COURT: We have received a note from the jury 6252 1 which we will mark Court Exhibit Roman I of today's date. It 2 reads: 3 Judge Sand, thank you for promptly providing the 4 items we requested yesterday. The jury would like to request 5 the following additional items to assist us in our 6 deliberations. 7 And then nine items are listed, and counsel have been 8 furnished with a copy of the list. 9 Are there any problems with respect to assembling and 10 furnishing these exhibits? 11 MR. KARAS: There shouldn't be, your Honor. We are 12 assembling exhibits with respect to the last two inquiries, 13 pictures and diagrams and the two locations. 155 and 156 are 14 actually stipulations that authenticate the records, and what 15 it looks like they ask for next to the exhibits is Florida and 16 California phone records. So the exhibits are not the records 17 themselves, they are just the stipulations that relate to the 18 records. 19 THE COURT: Should we give them that with a note that 20 says these are the stipulations, if you would like to see the 21 underlying records, please advise? 22 MR. KARAS: Either the records or the charts, yes, if 23 they want those. 24 MR. SCHMIDT: The records, I think, would be 25 appropriate, not the charts. 6253 1 THE COURT: What are the numbers of the exhibits, the 2 records themselves? 3 MR. KARAS: The records that go with the stipulation 4 that is marked 155, and this is Southern Bell, are 5 Government's Exhibit 541A, and this relates to one of the 6 telephone numbers in Orlando, Florida, and 451B -- 7 THE COURT: That is the California records? 8 MR. KARAS: They are a different set of records for 9 the same number in Orlando, Florida. It covers a different 10 time period. The Southern Bell records are 451A, 451B -- 451C 11 is the summary chart -- 452B is the other -- 451A, which for 12 the record is the subscriber records for 407-363-6981 -- 13 THE COURT: These are all the exhibit numbers? 14 MR.

That was a 3 question. 4 MR. SCHMIDT: No objection. 5 THE COURT: So the note will read: Ladies and 6 gentlemen of the jury, here are the exhibits you requested. 7 As to item number 5, GX155 and 156 are stipulations. The 8 underlying telephone records are Government's Exhibits 451A, 9 451B, 452B (Florida) and 364A, 364B, 365A, 365B (California), 10 also enclosed. 11 Is everything else assembled? 12 MR.

We will 13 assemble the exhibits that relate to the photos and sketches 14 of the two other locations. 15 THE COURT: They, together with the note, can be 16 brought together by the marshals in to the jury. Let me know 17 when that is done. 18 (Recess) 19 THE COURT: What was being duplicated? 20 MR. KARAS: The two plea agreements and the 21 stipulation regarding materiality. 22 THE COURT: That is so the jury can have 12 copies? 23 MR. KARAS: Correct, Judge. 24 THE COURT: All right. Is it agreeable to everyone 25 that rather than bringing the jury in at 3:30, the court just 6255 1 knock on the door and tell them that they are excused and to 2 have a pleasant weekend? 3 MR. KARAS: Yes, Judge. 4 MR. SCHMIDT: Yes. 5 THE COURT: I will do that then at 3:30, and we are 6 otherwise -- well, let's wait until 3:30. 7 (Recess) 8 (Time noted, 3:30 p.m.) 9 THE COURT: We are adjourned until Monday morning. 10 The jury comes in at 9:30, and I think, having just received 11 those additional requested exhibits, we are not likely to hear 12 anything from them between 9:30 and 10, but those of you who 13 have responsibilities in the early morning should bear in mind 14 that at some point we may meet earlier than 10. 15 I also want to tell you that on Tuesday, the jury is 16 not going to begin until 11:00. A juror has an urgent matter 17 and to accommodate that juror we won't begin until Tuesday 18 11:00 on Tuesday. 19 Otherwise we are adjourned until Monday at 10:00 a.m. 20 (Proceedings adjourned until 9:30 a.m., Monday, May 21 14, 2001) 22 23 24 25
