UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF FLORIDA Case No. 08-20612-CR-SEITZ Magistrate Judge John J. O’Suliivan

UNITED STATES OF AMERICA vs. TRAIAN BUJDUVEANU, Defendant. ________________________________/

GOVERNMENT’S RESPONSE TO DEFENDANT TRAIAN BUJDUVEANU’S EMERGENCY MOTION FOR FURLOUGH The United States of America, through undersigned counsel, files this Response to Defendant Bujduveanu’s Emergency Motion for Furlough, filed October 30, 2008 (D.E.105). For the reasons that follow, this Court should deny the defendant's Motion. Defendant Bujduveanu, who is presently being held at the Federal Detention Center in pretrial detention, has filed an Emergency Motion seeking permission from the Court for a brief furlough to visit his ailing mother. Authority to grant furloughs to federal inmates is solely within the jurisdiction of the Director of the United States Bureau of Prisons. 18 U.S.C. § 3622. The United States Courts are, therefore, not the appropriate venue for such a request. The defendant should direct his request to the United States Bureau of Prisons.
