The opinion of the court was delivered by: Judge: Hon. Garland E. Burrell
STIPULATION AND [PROPOSED] ORDER CONTINUING STATUS CONFERENCE
IT IS HEREBY stipulated between the United States of America through its undersigned counsel, Michael M. Beckwith, Assistant United States Attorney, together with counsel for defendant David Forkner, John R. Manning Esq., and counsel for defendant Loretta Leigh Canham, Dennis S. Waks Esq., request that the status conference currently set for August 6, 2010, be continued to October 8, 2010, and stipulate that the time beginning August 6, 2010, and extending through October 8, 2010, should be excluded from the calculation of time under the Speedy Trial Act. The parties request to exclude time for defense preperation. This matter involves a wire intercept on several telephones and related pen registers, as well as over 3000 pages of discovery.
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 USC § 3161(h)(7)(B)(iv) and (Local T-4).
[PROPOSED] ORDER TO CONTINUE STATUS CONFERENCE
GOOD CAUSE APPEARING, it is hereby ordered that the August 6, 2010 status conference be continued to October 8, 2010 at 9:00 a.m. I find that the ends of justice warrant an exclusion of time and that the defendant's need for continuity of counsel and reasonable time for effective preparation exceeds the public interest in a trial within 70 days.
THEREFOR IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that time be excluded pursuant to 18 U.S.C. § 3161 (h)(7)(B)(iv) and Local Code T4 from the date of this order to October 8, 2010.
