Counsel for the parties agree that this is an appropriate exclusion of time within the meaning of Title 18, United States Code § 3161(h) (7) (B) (ii) and (iv) (continuity of counsel/ reasonable time for effective preparation) and Local Code T4, and agree to exclude time from the date of the filing of the order until the date of the status conference October 25, 2010.
The parties are requesting more time to continue ongoing plea negotiations. 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).
IT IS SO STIPULATED

GOOD CAUSE APPEARING, it is hereby ordered that the August 23, 2010 status conference be continued to October 25, 2010 at 8:30 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 25, 2010.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
