Criminal Duty

Magistrate Judges in this district are assigned criminal matters on a rotating weekly basis. During that week, the court is not generally available for civil hearings. Criminal call begins at 1:00 PM daily in the duty courtroom on the first floor. Agents with requests for warrants, complaints, and other matters should report to the first floor courtroom and then to chambers for review of the papers. During the week of criminal duty, questions regarding duty matters should be directed to the duty phone at 313.234.5558; otherwise, counsel may call the courtroom deputy at the direct number in chambers.

The courtroom is not open to parties or the general public until 12:30 PM or as directed by the U.S. Marshals.
