To the list,

This is an update from the status conference for Dmitry and Elcomsoft 
today. As expected, the only issue discussed was the setting of dates for 
pre-trial motions. The issues were divided into two categories:

DMCA (possible claims are unconstitutionality including vagueness, First 
Amendment and lack of constitutional authority), and:

non-DMCA issues (possible issues are jurisdiction, a bill of particulars, 
and the
conspiracy charge).

The non-DMCA dates are:
Jan. 14, 2002 - the opening brief is due,
Feb. 11 - the opposition (govt.) brief is due,
Feb. 25 - the Dmitry reply brief is due, with the
March 4, 2002 - hearing.

The DMCA dates are:
Jan. 28, 2002 - the opening briefs and amici are due,
March 4 - the opposition (govt.) brief is due,
       March 18 - the reply brief is due
       April 1 - hearing
       Assuming the case is not dismissed because of the motions, there 
will be a hearing to set a trial date on April 15.

        If this needs to be forwarded to Dmitry-plan, would someone do that?
