ORDER - WAIVER OF POTENTIAL CONFLICT OF INTEREST as to Fernando Ramos-Lopez. (See Full Order.) With the foregoing principles in mind, and in view of the currently known facts and circumstances, including the record made at the hearings on March 16 and 17, 2017, the Court will exercise its discretion and accept Ramos-Lopez's and Angeles-Montezuma's knowing, voluntary, and intelligent waivers of a conflict of interest. The Court cannot say that the potential conflict of interest in these cases is so severe that no rational defendant would waive it. The Court's decision is influenced significantly by the fact that both Ramos-Lopez and Angeles-Montezuma received the benefit of counsel from independent and conflict-free attorneys and persisted in their respective desire to continue with the joint representation by Mr. DiSalvo. Accordingly, The Court accepts Ramos-Lopez's waiver of conflict of interest. Signed by District Judge Catherine D. Perry on 3/28/2017. (CBL)
