The USA Today obtained internal discovery memos for 74 U.S. Attorney Offices through Freedom of Information Act requests. Here is the Eastern District of California's Discovery Policy Memo for criminal cases, which I obtained from their website. While much of it is non-controversial and simply follows existing law, there are some tidbits defense attorneys can use in discovery requests and motions. For instance, how many times has an EDCA prosecutor argued that they don't need to turn over exculpatory Brady material until shortly before trial? Well, U.S. Attorney Ben Wagner has directed his prosecutors to turn it over "reasonably promptly after discovery."
