IT IS SO ORDERED. Time is excluded from the date of the parties' stipulation, August 13, 2009, through and including September 14, 2009 in the interests of justice pursuant to 18 U.S.C. §3161(h)(7)(A)&(B)(iv) [reasonable time to prepare] and Local Code T4.
The Court finds that the failure to grant a continuance in this case would deny each defense counsel reasonable time necessary for effective preparation of his respective client's case, taking into account the exercise of due diligence. 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.
