IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
April 6, 2009
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, PLAINTIFF,
RALONDRIA STAFFORD, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Morrison C. England, Jr. United States District Judge
STIPULATION AND ORDER CONTINUING STATUS CONFERENCE Date: 4/2/09 Time: 9:00 a.m. Judge: Hon. Morrison C. England, Jr.
IT IS HEREBY stipulated between the United States of America through its undersigned counsel, Kyle F. Reardon, Assistant United States Attorney, together with counsel for defendant Ralondria Stafford, John R. Manning, Esq., and counsel for defendant Necole Ward, Bruce Locke, Esq., that the status conference presently set for April 2, 2009 be continued to June 4, 2009, at 9:00 a.m., thus vacating the presently set status conference.
The parties stipulate that the ends of justice are served by the Court excluding such time, so that counsel for the defendants may have reasonable time necessary for effective preparation, taking into account the exercise of due diligence. 18 U.S.C. § 3161(h)(8)(B)(iv). The parties stipulate and agree that the interests of justice served by granting this continuance outweigh the best interests of the public and the defendant in a speedy trial. 18 U.S.C. § 3161(h)(8)(A).
IT IS SO STIPULATED.
ORDER TO CONTINUE STATUS CONFERENCE
GOOD CAUSE APPEARING, it is hereby ordered that the April 2, 2009 status conference be continued to June 4, 2009 at 9:00 a.m. I find that the ends of justice warrant an exclusion of time and that the defendant's need for continuity of counsel and reasonable time for effective preparation, exceeds the public interest in a trial within 70 days. THEREFORE IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that time be excluded pursuant to 18 U.S.C. § 3161(h)(8)(B)(iv) and Local Code T4 from the date of this order to June 4, 2009.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
