IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
March 25, 2010
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, PLAINTIFF,
BRET LEE HARTMAN, DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Edward J. Garcia United States District Judge
STIPULATION AND [PROPOSED] ORDER TO CONTINUE STATUS CONFERENCE
Date: April 9, 2010
Time: 10:00 a.m.
Judge: Hon. Edward J. Garcia
IT IS HEREBY STIPULATED between the parties, Robin Taylor, Assistant United States Attorney, and Douglas J. Beevers, Assistant Federal Defender, attorney for defendant Bret Lee Hartman, that the status conference of March 26, 2010 at 10:00 a.m., be vacated, and the matter be set for status conference on April 9, 2010 at 10:00 a.m.
The reason for the continuance is that the Government has additional discovery and a new Indictment in an ongoing investigation. The parties agree a continuance is necessary for this purpose, and agree to exclude time under the Speedy Trial Act accordingly.
IT IS STIPULATED that the period from the signing of this Order, up to and including April 9, 2010, be excluded in computing the time within which trial must commence under the Speedy Trial Act, pursuant to 18 U.S.C. § 3161(h)(7)(B)(iv) and Local Code T4, for ongoing preparation of counsel.
Dated: March 25, 2010 Respectfully submitted, DANIEL BRODERICK Federal Defender DOUGLAS BEEVERS Assistant Federal Defender Attorney for Defendant BRET LEE HARTMAN
Dated: March 25, 2010 LAWRENCE BROWN Acting United States Attorney By: ROBIN TAYLOR Assistant U.S. Attorney
UPON GOOD CAUSE SHOWN and the stipulation of all parties, it is ordered that the status conference presently set for March 26, 2010, be continued to April 9, 2010 at 10:00 a.m. Based on the representation of defense counsel and good cause appearing therefrom, the Court hereby finds that the failure to grant a continuance in this case would deny defendant reasonable time necessary for effective preparation, taking into account the exercise of due diligence. The Court finds that the ends of justice to be served by granting a continuance outweigh the best interests of the public and the defendant in a speedy trial. It is ordered that time from the date of this Order, to and including, the April 9, 2010 status conference 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 T-4, to allow defense counsel time to prepare.
