UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA SAN FRANCISCO DIVISION
July 25, 2008
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, PLAINTIFF,
JOHN JOSEPH COTA, DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Susan Illston United States District Court Judge
[Proposed] ORDER EXCLUDING TIME FROM JULY 18, 2008, to AUGUST 1, 2008
On July 18, 2008, the parties appeared before the Court. At that appearance, the parties agreed that the period of delay from July 18, 2008, to August 1, 2008, be excluded in computing the time within which the trial must commence. The grounds for this exclusion are the complexity of the case, and the need for the parties to exchange and review further discovery. Failure to grant such a continuance would unreasonably deny the defendant and the government the reasonable time necessary for effective preparation, taking into account the exercise of due diligence. See 18 U.S.C. Section 3161(h)(8)(A) and (B)(iv). Further the ends of justice served by the continuance outweigh the best interest of the public and the defendant in a speedy trial.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
