I realize that the law dictates that a defendant is allowed a speedy trial. That is the reason why there are deadlines to file this and that so that the trial moves along at a good clip. That's all fair and good.
On the other hand, trial lawyers are under great pressure to collect, study and file all the information and evidence that they need to represent their client. Even with motion for leave being available, they are still rushed. If they had more time in the beginning, I think trials might be more just.
