IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
June 8, 2009
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, PLAINTIFF,
MICHAEL CRAIG DENNIS, DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Garland E. Burrell, Jr. United States District Judge
STIPULATION AND [PROPOSED] 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, and Attorney Alexandria Carl, Counsel for Defendant Michael Dennis, that the status conference scheduled for June 5, 2009, be continued to July 10, 2009, at 9:00 a.m.
The request to continue the status conference is made on the ground that defense counsel has requested additional discovery in the case. The government is gathering the requested information. The defense will need additional time to review the materials.
In light of these discussions, both parties are requesting additional time for attorney preparation. The government and defendant agree that an exclusion of time is appropriate under 18 U.S.C. § 3161(h)(7)(B)(iv); Local Code T4 (reasonable time to prepare). This exclusion of time includes the period from June 5, 2009, up to and including July 10, 2009.
Alexandria Carl agrees to this request and has authorized Assistant United States Attorney Todd D. Leras to sign this stipulation on her behalf.
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED:
1. The status conference set for June 5, 2009, is continued to July 10, 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 defendant 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) from June 5, 2009, up to and including July 10, 2009.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
