04/07/2009138 ORDER entered as to Mitchell Kent Sweezy, Sweezy Construction Inc, Jentex Construction, Inc., KPS Texas Dev., Inc., Sweezy 1999, Trust #1, Sweezy 1999, Trust #2, Sovereign Partners, LTD, Santorini R.E. Investments, LTD., Island Daze Investments, LTD., Big S Rentals, Inc. On March 25, 2009, Defendants in the above-styled criminal action filed an Opposed Motion to Sever the bankruptcy counts from the Second Supercesing Indictment pursuant to Federal Rule of Criminal Procedure 8(a)(DE 129)(the "Motion"). At the final pre-trial hearing held on March 31, 2009, this Court orally denied Defendants' Motion, with the understanding that a written order memorializing the Court's ruling would be entered shortly thereafter. Having this day declared a mistrial in this criminal action out of manifest necessity, the issue of whether to sever the bankruptcy counts is now moot. Accordingly, there is no need for this Court to enter an order explaining in greater detail its prior ruling denying the Defendants' Motion, and the parties should not anticipate one being entered.
