Specifically, I'm talking about the part of the 6th amendment that guarantees the right to a speedy trial. I've read quite a bit about the long vacancies in federal judge positions due to the senate not holding any hearings to confirm anyone at all the levels. So, if someone's case is held up due to the court being overloaded, would they have standing to sue the senate for creating this situation?
If you want to have some fun and increase the likelihood that you will go to trial soon, you can file a motion to dismiss for failure to comply with the Speedy Trial Act. If you have co-defendants they may be the reason for delay. You could then move for a severance. On a slightly different note, since 95% of federal criminal cases result in the imposition of a penalty on the accused, you should start calculating your guidelines.
