March 23, 2010
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, PLAINTIFF,
CESAR ADRIAN ZUNIGA, LUIS ALFONZO ZUNIGA-GARCIA, DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Hon. Edward J. Garcia Senior United States District Judge
STIPULATION AND [PROPOSED] ORDER DATE: June 11, 2010 TIME: 10:00 a.m. JUDGE: Hon. Edward J. Garcia
IT IS HEREBY STIPULATED and agreed to between the United States of America through HEIKO COPPOLA, Assistant U.S. Attorney, and defendants, CESAR ADRIAN ZUNIGA by and through his counsel, JEFFREY L. STANIELS, Assistant Federal Defender, and LUIS ALFONZO ZUNIGA-GARCIA by and through his counsel, SCOTT CAMERON, that the status conference set for Friday, March 26, 2010, be continued to Friday, June 11, 2010, at 10:00 a.m..
The reason for this continuance is to allow defense counsel additional time to continue ongoing investigation of the circumstances surrounding the arrest of the defendants. Defense counsel have just received additional discovery related to potential motions in the case that requires substantial additional follow-up investigation.
The parties stipulate that the ends of justice served by granting this continuance outweigh the best interests of the public and the defendant in a speedy trial.
IT IS FURTHER STIPULATED that the time period from the date of this stipulation, March 23, 2010, through and including the date of the new status conference hearing, June 11, 2010, shall be 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)(B)(iv) and Local Code T4 [reasonable time for defense counsel to prepare].
For the reasons stated in the above stipulation of counsel, the status conference set for Friday, March 26, 2010, is hereby continued until Friday, June 11, 2010, at 10:00 a.m. The ends of justice served by granting this continuance outweigh the best interests of the public and the defendant in a speedy trial. Time for trial under the Speedy Trial Act is excluded from March 26, 2010, through and including June 11, 2010, in the interests of justice pursuant to 18 U.S.C. §3161(h)(7)(B)(iv) [reasonable time to prepare] and Local Code T4.
