STIPULATION AND ORDER FOR EXTENSION OF TIME FOR PARTIES TO FILE TRIAL DOCUMENTS
IT IS HEREBY STIPULATED by Lawrence G. Brown, United States Attorney and Kimberly A. Sanchez, Assistant U.S. and Attorney Alex Kessel, that the due date of September 2, 2009 for the proposed jury instructions, verdict forms, witness lists and voir dire be extended to September 9, 2009. Trial in this matter is currently set for September 8, 2009 with motions in limine to be heard at 8:15 a.m. on that same date. The Court's Order dated August, 31, 2009 directs that the trial will trail until defense counsel has concluded a trial in which he is currently engaged. The parties have reached an agreement and defense counsel has represented that he anticipates the defendant will sign the agreement on Saturday, September 6, 2009. Defense counsel is in trial for the remainder of the week, and the defendant lives in Washington state. Defense counsel has also represented that another attorney from his firm can appear on September 8, 2009 with the defendant for a change of plea proceeding.
Thus, the parties respectfully request this Honorable Court to issue an order granting an extension of time to file their proposed jury instructions, verdict form, voir dire and witness lists to September 9, 2009.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
