STIPULATION AND [PROPOSED]ORDER
It is hereby stipulated between the parties, Assistant United States Attorney Michael Anderson, and Assistant Federal Defender Caro Marks, attorney for defendant Carlos Albarran-Montes, as follows:
The status conference hearing date of February 22, 2010, should be continued until March 22, 2010.

It is ordered that time up to and including the status conference on March 22, 2010 shall be excluded from computation of time within which the ...
