STIPULATION AND ORDER CONTINUING STATUS CONFERENCE
Defendant JAMES SVENDSEN, by and through his attorney Colin L. Cooper, and plaintiff United States of America, by and through Assistant United States Attorney Samuel Wong, hereby stipulate and agree to continue the status conference in the above-captioned case from Monday, September 28, 2009 at 10:00 a.m. to Tuesday, October 13, 2009, at 10:00 a.m. The continuance is requested to allow defendant's counsel additional time for review of discovery and further investigation. Defense counsel has been involved in trial preparation and trial on another matter for over the last month and, therefore, needs additional time to work on this matter.
The parties further stipulate and agree that the period from the date of the parties' stipulation, September 25, 2009, to October 13, 2009, is excludable from computation of time within which the trial of this matter must be commenced under the Speedy Trial Act, pursuant to 18 U.S.C.§3161(h)(7)(A) and (B)(iv) and Local Code T4 for the effective preparation of defense counsel and continuity of defense counsel.
DATED: September 24, 2009
COLIN L. COOPER Attorney for Defendant JAMES SVENDSEN
SAMUEL WONG Assistant United States Attorney
GOOD CAUSE APPEARING from the reasons set forth in the stipulation of the parties, filed on September 25, 2009,
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that the status conference currently scheduled for September 28, 2009, shall be continued until Tuesday, October 13, 2009, at 10:00 a.m. The Court finds that the ends of justice to be served by granting a continuance outweigh the best interests of the public and defendant James Svendsen in a speedy trial. Accordingly,
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that, for the reasons stated in the parties' stipulation, the time from the date of the parties' stipulation, September 25, 2009, to, and including, October 13, 2009, is excluded from computation of time within which the trial of this matter must be commenced under the Speedy Trial Act pursuant to 18 U.S.C. §3161(h)(7)(A) and (B)(iv), and Local Code T4, due to the need to provide defense counsel with the reasonable time to prepare and provide defendant with continuity of defense counsel.
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that the status conference scheduled for September 28, 2009, is continued to October 13, 2009, at 10:00 a.m.
