STIPULATION AND ORDER TO EXCLUDE TIME
The parties request that the status conference in this case be continued from April 12, 2011 to June 7, 2011 at 9:30 a.m. They stipulate that the time between April 12, 2011 and June 7, 2011 should be excluded from the calculation of time under the Speedy Trial Act. The parties stipulate that the ends of justice are served by the Court excluding such time, so that counsel for the defendant may have reasonable time necessary for effective preparation, taking into account the exercise of due diligence.
18 U.S.C. § 3161(h)(7)(B)(iv) and Local Code T-4. Specifically, defense counsel needs additional time to review the discovery provided by the government, to discuss that discovery with the defendant and to perform investigation. The parties stipulate and agree that the interests of justice served by granting this continuance outweigh the best interests of the public and the defendant in a speedy trial. 18 U.S.C. § 3161(h)(7)(A).
John A. Mendez
