Based on the stipulation of the parties and good cause apparent therein, the Court hereby finds that the failure to grant a continuance in this case would deny Defendants' counsel reasonable time necessary for effective preparation, taking into account the exercise of due diligence. The Court specifically finds that the ends of justice are served by the granting of such continuance and outweigh the interests of the public and the Defendants in a speedy trial.
Based on these findings and pursuant to the stipulation of the parties, the Court hereby adopts the stipulation of the parties in its entirety as its order.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
