IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
January 7, 2009
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, PLAINTIFF,
DANIEL RAMIREZ-JIMENEZ, AND OLIVERO CALIXTO-NAVARRO, DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Morrison C. England, Jr. United States District Judge
STIPULATION AND ORDER CONTINUING STATUS CONFERENCE
IT IS HEREBY STIPULATED by and between Plaintiff United States of America, by and through Acting United States Attorney Lawrence G. Brown and Assistant U.S. Attorney Todd D. Leras, Attorney Gilbert Roque, Counsel for Defendant Daniel Ramirez-Jimenez, and Attorney Carl Larson, Counsel for Defendant Olivero Calixto-Navarro, that the status conference scheduled for January 8, 2009, be continued to February 5, 2009, at 9:00 a.m.
The request to continue the status conference is made on the ground that the parties are discussing potential settlement of the case and need additional time to complete their negotiations. The government and both defendants agree that an exclusion of time is appropriate under 18 U.S.C. § 3161(h)(8)(B)(iv); Local Code T4 (reasonable time to prepare).
Gilbert Roque and Carl Larson agree to this request and have authorized Assistant United States Attorney Todd D. Leras to sign this stipulation on their behalf.
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED:
1. The status conference set for January 8, 2009 is continued to February 5, 2009, at 9:00 a.m.
2. Based on the stipulations and representations of the parties, the Court finds that the ends of justice outweigh the best interest of the public and Defendants in a speedy trial. Accordingly, time under the Speedy Trial Act shall be excluded under 18 U.S.C. § 3161(h)(8)(B)(iv) and Local Code T4 (reasonable time to prepare) up to and including February 5, 2009.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
