Lloyd Turks, Defendant

          ORDER

          James G. Carr Sr. U.S. District Judge.

         In this criminal case, defendant Lloyd Turks faces five drug charges under 21 U.S.C. § 842.

         In a July 26, 2019 order (Doc. 75), I denied Turks's motion for an order authorizing independent blood testing (Doc. 58) and his motion to produce witnesses for trial and make available witnesses who are amenable to pretrial interviews (Doc. 69).[1]
