IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
January 27, 2010
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, PLAINTIFF,
TRAVIS PRICE, DEFENDANT.
STIPULATION AND ORDER CONTINUING PRELIMINARY HEARING
IT IS HEREBY STIPULATED between Plaintiff United States of America, by and through Assistant United States Attorney Todd D. Leras, and Attorney Michael Bigelow, Counsel for Defendant Travis Price, that the preliminary hearing scheduled for January 28, 2010, be continued to February 24, 2010, at 2:00 p.m. Defendant and the government are discussing possible pre-indictment resolution of this matter. Defense counsel has requested additional discovery which he believes will assist with potential early resolution. In light of the settlement discussions and the need to obtain and review additional discovery, both parties are requesting additional time for attorney preparation.
The government and defendant agree that the settlement discussions and discovery request/review constitute good cause to extend the time for preliminary hearing under Federal Rule of Criminal Procedure 5.1(d), as well as under the Speedy Trial Act, 18 U.S.C. § 3161(h)(7)(B)(iv). This exclusion of time includes the period up to and including February 24, 2010.
Michael Bigelow agrees to this request and has authorized Assistant United States Attorney Todd D. Leras to sign this stipulation on his behalf.
DATED: January 27, 2010
