The parties request that the status conference currently set for June 21, 2010, be continued to August 23, 2010, and stipulate that the time beginning June 21, 2010, and extending through August 23, 2010, should be excluded from the calculation of time under the Speedy Trial Act. The parties submit that the ends of justice are served by the Court excluding such time, so that counsel for each defendant may have reasonable time necessary for effective preparation, taking into account the exercise of due diligence. 18 U.S.C. §§ 3161(h)(7)(A) and 3161(h)(7)(B)(ii) and (iv); Local Codes T2 and T4.
The parties are in the process of discussing and negotiating various pretrial dispositions. Each defendant will need time to consider any plea offer he or she may receive. Additionally, counsel for each defendant needs more time to review the discovery in this case, discuss that discovery with their respective clients, consider evidence that may affect the disposition of this case, and discuss with their clients how to proceed. The parties stipulate and agree that the interests of justice served by granting this continuance outweigh the best interests of the public and the defendants in a speedy trial. 18 U.S.C. § 3161(h)(7)(A).
