IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
August 5, 2010
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, PLAINTIFF,
JOHN RAYMOND PORTER, DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Garland E. Burrell, Jr. United States District Judge
STIPULATION AND [PROPOSED] ORDER CONTINUING STATUS CONFERENCE Date: September 17, 2010 Time: 9:00 a.m. Judge: Garland E. Burrell, Jr.
It is hereby stipulated between the parties, Michelle Rodriguez, Assistant United States Attorney, attorney for plaintiff, and Douglas Beevers, Assistant Federal Defender, attorney for defendant JOHN RAYMOND PORTER, that the Status Conference hearing date of August 13, 2010 , be vacated and a new Status Conference hearing date of September 17, 2010 at 9:00 a.m. be set.
The reason for the continuance is to allow counsel additional time to negotiate a resolution to this matter. The parties agree a continuance is necessary for these purposes, and agree to exclude time under the Speedy Trial Act accordingly.
IT IS STIPULATED that the period from the date of the parties' signing of this stipulation, and up to and including the September 17, 2010 status conference, shall be excluded in computing the time within which trial of this matter must be commenced under the Speedy Trial Act, pursuant to 18 U.S.C §3161(h)(7)(A) and (B) (ii) and (iv) and Local Code T4 (ongoing preparation of defense counsel).
UPON GOOD CAUSE SHOWN and the stipulation of all parties, it is ordered that the status conference presently set for August 13, 2010, be continued to September 17, 2010 at 9:00 a.m. Based on the representation of defense counsel and good cause appearing therefrom, the Court hereby finds that it is unreasonable to expect adequate preparation for pretrial proceedings and trial itself within the time limits established in 18 U.S.C. § 3161, the requested continuance is necessary to provide defense counsel reasonable time necessary for effective preparation, taking into account the exercise of due diligence. The Court finds the ends of Stipulation and Order 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 the parties' signing of this stipulation, up to and including, the September 17, 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)(A) and (B)(ii) and (iv) and Local Code T4 (allow defense counsel reasonable time to prepare).
IT IS SO ORDERED.
