IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
September 8, 2011
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Judge: Hon. William B. Shubb
Date: October 31, 2011 Time: 8:30 a.m.
STIPULATION AND [PROPOSED] ORDER; CONTINUING STATUS CONFERENCE AND EXCLUDING TIME
IT IS HEREBY STIPULATED by and between the parties hereto through their respective counsel, KYLE REARDON, Assistant United States Attorney, attorney for Plaintiff, and MATTHEW SCOBLE, attorney for MICHAEL HILL, that the status conference hearing date of September 12, 2011 be vacated, and the matter be set for status conference on October 31, 2011 at 8:30 a.m.
The reason for this continuance is to allow defense counsel additional time to review discovery with the defendant, to examine possible defenses and to continue investigating the facts of the case.
Based upon the foregoing, the parties agree that the time under the Speedy Trial Act should be excluded from the date of signing of this order through and including October 31, 2011 pursuant to 18 U.S.C. §3161 (h)(7)(A)and (B)(iv)[reasonable time to prepare] and Local Code T4 based upon continuity of counsel and defense preparation.
DATED: September 9, 2011. Respectfully submitted, DANIEL J. BRODERICK Federal Public Defender /s/ Matthew Scoble MATTHEW SCOBLE Designated Counsel for Service Attorney for MICHAEL HILL DATED: September 9, 2011. BENJAMIN WAGNER United States Attorney /s/ Matthew Scoble for KYLE REARDON Assistant U.S. Attorney Attorney for Plaintiff
ORDER UPON GOOD CAUSE SHOWN and the stipulation of all parties, it is ordered that the September 12, 2011, status conference hearing be continued to October 31, 2011, at 8:30 a.m. Based on the representation of defense counsel and good cause appearing there from, the Court hereby finds that the failure to grant a continuance in this case would deny defense counsel reasonable time necessary for effective preparation, taking into account the exercise of due diligence. The Court finds that the ends of 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 up to and including the October 31, 2011 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)(iv) and Local Code T-4, to allow defense counsel reasonable time to prepare.
