The opinion of the court was delivered by: Judge: Hon. John A. Mendez
DANIEL J. BRODERICK, Bar #89424 Federal Defender DENNIS S. WAKS, Bar #142581 Supervising Assistant Federal Defender Designated Counsel for Service 801 I Street, 3rd Floor Sacramento, California 95814 Telephone: (916) 498-5700 Attorney for Defendant ATEF SHEHATA
STIPULATION AND [PROPOSED] ORDER
Date: November 29, 2011 Time: 9:30 a.m.
IT IS HEREBY STIPULATED between the United States of America, through its undersigned counsel, Assistant United States Attorney R. Steven Lapham, Special Assistant United States Attorney, Peter M. Williams, and defendants Atef Shehata, through his undersigned counsel Supervising Assistant Federal Defender Dennis S. Waks, Atif Henan, through his undersigned counsel Alan Eisner, defendant Samy Girgis, through his undersigned counsel Harvey E. Byron, and defendant Soheir Girgis, through her undersigned counsel Robert Helfend, that the status conference presently set in this matter for October 11, 2011 be continued to November 29, 2011, at 9:30 a.m.
The parties stipulate and agree that the setting is necessary to permit defense counsel to review discovery of approximately 12,000 pages provided by the government.
The parties further stipulate and agree that this is a complex case within the meaning of 18 U.S.C § 3161 (h)(7)(B)(ii) and that the exclusion of time during the period needed for defense counsel's reasonable time for effective preparation, taking into account the exercise of due diligence within the meaning of 18 U.S.C § 3161 (h) (7)(B)(iv), and that the ends of justice served by granting exclusion of time therefore outweigh the best interests of the public and the defendants in a speedy trial pursuant to 18 U.S.C § 3161 (h) (7)(A); time should be excluded from the date of this order to the new date of November 29, 2011.
The status conference is continued to November 29, 2011, at 9:30 a.m. For the reasons set forth above, the court finds that the ends of justice to be served by granting a continuance outweigh the best interests of the public and the defendants in a speedy trial and therefore excludes time under the Speedy Trial Act through November 29, 2011.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
HON. JOHN A. MENDEZ
United States District Judge
