STIPULATION TO EXTEND STAY OF FURTHER PROCEEDINGS AND ORDER THEREON [PROPOSED]
DATE: June 15, 2009 TIME: 9:00 a.m. COURT: 10
Plaintiff United States of America and claimant John Steve Lindsey, by and through their respective counsel, hereby stipulate that an extension of the stay previously entered in this case on January 7, 2009, is necessary in the above-entitled action, and request that the Court enter an order staying all further proceedings until July 13, 2009.
This request is based on the following: 1. On June 1, 2009, counsel for the government spoke with Butte County Deputy District Attorney Stacey Edwards. Ms. Edwards advised that claimant has pled guilty to state spousal abuse charges and to an enhancement for using a weapon, and has stipulated to a four year prison term. Sentencing is now scheduled for June 4, 2009.
3. Accordingly, the parties request that the status conference now scheduled for June 15, 2009, be continued to July 13, 2009. The parties will submit a joint status (pretrial scheduling) report at that time if they are not able to resolve this action.
