We will explore a variety of legal issues arising from COVID restrictions including challenges to the empanelment and activities of grand juries; difficulties in handling discovery practice and proposed changes to Rule 16 and the Jencks Act; limitations on defense investigation, client consultation and witness interviews; speedy trial concerns; motions seeking to ensure a fair cross-section of the defendant’s community in jury selection; effective advocacy in the courtroom with social distancing and mask wearing; as well as the proper preservation of appellate issues.
