MEMORANDUM OPINION AND ORDER as to Abigail Sargent, Leopoldo Gonzalez-Cruz, Ubaldino Esau Hernandez: The Court sees no issue of joint representation. Despite that, the Court ensured that each Defendant understood the testimony and had the chance, again, to confer with independent counsel. Each Defendant affirmatively stated the desire to continue with the current representation, this despite the Court's explicit offer to provide CJA counsel for the full case defense. The Court accepts the status quo as compliant with applicable law. At the hearing, the Court did announce some prophylactic measures, which all counsel shall follow during the pendency of the case. See DE 21, 22, & 23. Any party objecting should consult the statute and Fed Rule of CR Procedure 59(a) re its right of and mechanics for reconsideration before the District Court.
