IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS
May 27, 2012
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, PLAINTIFF,
ANTHONY COLON, DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Reagan, District Judge:
ORDER DESIGNATING MULTIPLE VICTIM CASE
This matter is before the Court on the application of the United States of America ("the Government") to designate this case a Multiple Victim case under the Justice for All Act of 2004, 18 U.S.C. § 3771. The Government has represented that there are thousands of victims of the purported fraud charged in the information and that formal compliance with all of the provisions of the Act would be impracticable.
Pursuant to 18 U.S.C. § 3771(d)(2), the Court FINDS that the number of crime victims makes it impracticable to accord all of the crime victims all of the rights described in § 3771(a). Therefore, the Court GRANTS the Government's motion (Doc. 4) and ORDERS that the notice and consultation requirements in subsections (2) and (5) of § 3771(a) may be met by establishing an Internet web page and updating the web page to provide notice of relevant events in the case. The Court determines that this procedure will give effect to the Act and not unduly complicate or prolong the proceedings.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
