Magistrate Judge Schroeder http://nycourts.law.com/CourtDocumentViewer.asp?view=Document&docID=119474 IN THE context of an omnibus discovery motion relating to a superseding indictment, defendant moved for a bill of particulars as to the superseding indictment. Discussing United States v. Salazar, United States v. Torres, and other cases the court denied defendant the requested bill of particulars. The court determined that the charges in the indictment and thereafter in the superseding indictment, together with discovery materials previously provided, and responses supplied to defendant’s other requests clearly informed defendant as to the essential facts of the crimes charged. Quoting Hemphill v. United States the court observed that “[a]cquisition of evidentiary detail is not the function of a bill of particulars.” The court also denied defendant’s requests to be supplied with copies of any statement that he made at any time during the course of the investigation. Based on the government’s assertion that defendant had previously been supplied with statements qualifying for suppression pursuant to Rule 16, the court deemed defendant’s statement request to be moot.
