IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
June 15, 2009
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, PLAINTIFF,
JUAN CAMACHO, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Court: Hon. Lawrence K. Karlton
ORDER EXCLUDING TIME UNDER SPEEDY TRIAL ACT, AND SETTING FURTHER STATUS CONFERENCE DATE
On May 19, 2009, the parties appeared before the Court for a status conference. Assistant United States Attorney Samuel Wong appeared on behalf of plaintiff United States of America. Michael Bigelow, Esq., appeared with his client, defendant Veider Rodriguez-Rivera. J. Toney, Esq., appeared with his client, defendant Juan Camacho.
The parties requested that the matter be continued to August 11, 2009, at 9:15 a.m., for further status conference to allow each defense counsel additional time to prepare his respective client's case due to the unusual and complex nature of this case, especially as it relates to the amount of discovery involved in this court authorized wiretap case. The parties requested and agreed that time from May 19, 2009, to, and including, August 11, 2009, shall be excluded from computation of time within which the trial of this case must be commenced under the Speedy Trial Act, pursuant to Local Code T2.
Based on the representations and stipulations of the parties, and good cause appearing therefrom, the Court sets a new status conference hearing on August 11, 2009, at 9:15 a.m. The Court orders that time from May 19, 2009, to, and including, August 11, 2009, shall be excluded from computation of time within which the trial of this case must be commenced under the Speedy Trial Act, pursuant to Local Code T2.
The Court continues to affirm its previous finding that this case is unusual and complex. The Court specifically finds that the ends of justice served by the granting of such continuance outweigh the interests of the public and defendants in a speedy trial.
It is so ordered.
