12/11/2018 TEXT ONLY ORDER as to Brendt A Christensen: At the 11/26/2018 telephone conference, the Court reserved ruling on whether to allow an evidentiary hearing on Defendant's Motion 108 . After careful review of the Motion, Response, and Reply, the Court finds that the Motion 108 is directed squarely at the penalty phase, and it is not until Defendant's Reply 175 that Defendant raises a challenge to the use of the evidence at issue during the guilty phase of the trial. If Defendant wishes to raise such a challenge, it should be included in a motion so that the United States has an opportunity to respond. No such motion is currently on file. Accordingly, the Court denies Defendant's request to present evidence relating to 108 at the December hearings. Entered by Chief Judge James E. Shadid on 12/11/2018. (SJP, ilcd) (Entered: 12/11/2018)

R. Crim. P. 17(b) (emphasis added). In light of the Court's December 11, 2018 text entry declining an evidentiary hearing on 108 , the Court requests Defendant to explain why the presence of the witness identified in paragraph 2(c) is necessary for the currently scheduled motion hearings. Accordingly, Defendant's Motion is granted as to the individuals identified in paragraph 2(a), (b), and (d), and the Court reserves ruling on the individual identified in paragraph 2(c). The Clerk is directed to issue subpoenas for the individuals identified in paragraph 2(a),(b), and (d). Entered by Chief Judge James E. Shadid on 12/12/2018. (SJP, ilcd) (Entered: 12/12/2018)
