Administrative Order 2020-14 - in Re: Status of Detention Facilities Housing Defendants in Cases Filed in the Eastern District of New York

Thursday, April 2, 2020

In response to the coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic, counsel for defendants detained at

three facilities have filed and continue to file applications for release in individual cases pending

in this District. A primary basis cited in each of these applications is the general risk of

contracting COVID-19 as a result of the defendant’s continued confinement, together with

additional information specific to the particular defendant and case. See the Order for more information.
