IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
April 7, 2009
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, PLAINTIFF,
FRANCISCO LIERA, ET AL., DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Lawrence J. O'Neill United States District Judge
Having read and considered the parties' stipulation to suspend the briefing schedule,
IT IS THE ORDER of the Court that the briefing schedule in this matter is hereby suspended and the motions hearing of April 17 shall be converted to a status conference, at which time the a new briefing schedule and hearing motion shall be set.
The Court further finds that the ends of justice served by granting the requested continuance outweigh the best interests of the public and the defendant in a speedy trial, in that the failure to grant the continuance would deny the parties an opportunity to potentially dispose of the matter without a trial and would deny the defendant an opportunity to properly investigate.
WHEREFORE IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that time shall be excluded in the interest of justice, pursuant to 18 U.S.C. § 3161(h)(8)(A).
IT IS SO ORDERED.
