IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
August 27, 2010
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, PLAINTIFF,
JOSE LUIS VALENCIA-MENDOZA, ET AL. DEFENDANTS.
ORDER EXCLUDING TIME UNDER THE SPEEDY TRIAL ACT
Defendants Valencia-Mendoza, Valencia, Zarate, and Medrano appeared before the Court on July 27, 2010 at 9:15 a.m. (Defendant Barrajas did not appear.) The government was represented by Assistant U.S. Attorney Daniel S. McConkie. Defendant Valencia-Mendoza was represented by Lori Teichert; defendant Valencia was represented by J. Tony; defendant Zarate was represented by Gilbert Roque; defendant Medrano was represented by Preciliano Martinez. The parties are continuing to work toward a resolution of the case and to prepare for trial. At the request of all parties, the status conference was continued until September 21, 2010.
Accordingly, the Court finds 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)(B)(iv) and time, therefore, will be excluded from July 27, 2010 through September 21, 2010.
