Minutes of proceedings [non-document] before Judge Solomon Oliver, Jr.A Telephonic Pretrial Conference as to Charles Vaccaro (1), Dror Svorai (2), Dennis Ruggeri (3), Kevin Hagen (4), Gary Berlly (5), and Yosef Biton (6) was held on 7/18/2022 with counsel for the parties. AUSA Alejandro Abreu was present for the government. Attorneys Zelin, Amsel, Orenstein, Roberts and Hunter were present for their respective clients. Attorney Mullin was not present, however, contacted the court at approximately noon to apologize and advise the court that he was hung up in state court at a trial that was scheduled to begin this morning, and to briefly advise the court where the case stands as to his client, Mr. Ruggeri. The parties present indicated most have been engaged in conversations with the government regarding resolution of their matters. Defense counsel present made an oral motion to continue for approximately 60 days, so they can continue discussions with the government and their respective clients toward resolution of their cases, to which the government did not object, and the court grants, finding, under 18 U.S.C. § 3161(h)(7)(A) and (B), the ends of justice served by continuance of trial outweigh the best interests of the public and the Defendants in a speedy trial. A Telephonic Pretrial Conference is set for 9/20/2022 at 10:30 AM before Judge Solomon Oliver Jr. Dial-in information will be issued separately. The court will set this case for final pretrial and trial should this matter not resolve by that time. (Court Reporter Heidi Geizer) Time: 20 minutes. (R,Sh) (Entered: 07/18/2022)



If no agreement (plea deal) is reached by pretrial, then the judge may go ahead and rule for a trial date. If they move to trial, it likely won’t get into the court schedule until next year.
