The opinion of the court was delivered by: The Honorable Morrison C. England
STIPULATION AND PROPOSED ORDER RESETTING THE STATUS CONFERENCE TO: DATE: July 30, 2009 TIME: 9:00 a.m.
Defendants by and through their respective counsel and the United States (government) by and through counsel Assistant U.S. Attorney Matt Stegman stipulate and agree the status conference currently set for June 11, 2009, should be reset to July 30, 2009, at 9:00 a.m.
The parties stipulate and agree the time from June 11, 2009, up to and including July 30, 2009, should be excluded in computing the time within which the trial of the above criminal prosecution must commence for purposes of the Speedy Trial Act. The parties stipulate that the ends of justice are served by the Court excluding such time, so that counsel for the government and the defendant 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) (Local Code T4).
To date the government has provided 5,571 pages of discovery. While the case has been pending since March 18, 2008, a majority of the discovery, 3,742 pages, was provided in April and May of this year. Counsel for all defendants are still in the process of reviewing the discovery and conducting investigations. Additionally, attorney Chris Haydn-Myer was recently appointed on March 23, 2009. Therefore, the additional time is necessary for attorney preparation and all parties agree the exclusion of time pursuant to Local Code T-4 is appropriate.
It is so ordered.
