For those who are checking our calendar frequently, and simply want to know what the most recent updates are since the prior version we published, those updates are listed below. We intend to update the calendar daily or as the legal schedules continue to evolve. We welcome readers’ feedback and additional information at (email address). 

* Judge Chutkan’s Jan. 18 order stated that, inter alia, “Until the [DC Cir.] mandate is returned in this case, the parties shall not file any substantive pretrial motions without first seeking leave of court, and any such request for leave shall state whether the proposed motion concerns matters involved in the appeal or is instead ancillary to it.” This follows Chutkan’s automatic stay last month of any “further proceedings that would move” Trump’s “case towards trial or impose additional burdens of litigation on” him, which shall include all “deadlines and proceedings scheduled” in the court’s Aug. 28 pretrial order. In response to that stay order, the government said that “in light of the public’s strong interest in a prompt trial,” it would “continue to meet all of its deadlines” in the court’s pretrial order. Approval by the court will now be required to make such filings. The deadlines and proceedings that have stayed and require court approval for any filings have been marked in bold and purple in the calendar below.
