IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
December 4, 2009
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, PLAINTIFF,
DAVID DEAN DAVIDSON, DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Judge: Morrison C. England, Jr.
STIPULATION AND ORDER CONTINUING STATUS CONFERENCE AND EXCLUDING TIME Date: December 3, 2009 Time: 9:00 a.m.
It is hereby stipulated and agreed between defendant, David Davidson, and plaintiff, United States of America, by and through their attorneys, that the status conference presently scheduled for December 3, 2009, may be continued to December 10, 2009, at 9:00 a.m.
Counsel for the parties have scheduled another meeting to iron out their differences. Defense counsel believes that guidelines issued by the Attorney General concerning prosecution of cases involving marijuana distributed for medical use will bear on the parties' negotiations.
In order to afford time to complete this review, the parties agree that time under the Speedy Trial Act should be excluded from the date of this order through December 10, 2009, pursuant to Title 18, United States Code, Section 3161(h)(7)(A) and (B)(iv).
BENJAMIN WAGNER United States Attorney Dated: December 1, 2009 T. Zindel for M. Stegman MATT STEGMAN Assistant U.S. Attorney
The status conference is continued to December 10, 2009, at 9:00 a.m. The court finds that a continuance is necessary for the reasons stated above and further finds that the ends of justice served by granting a continuance outweigh the best interests of the public and the defendant in a speedy trial. Time is therefore excluded from the date of this order through December 10, 2009, pursuant to 18 U.S.C. § 3161(h)(7)(A) and (B)(iv).
IT IS SO ORDERED.
MORRISON C. ENGLAND, JR. UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE
