Plaintiff United States of America and claimants Wei Jie Ma and Cindy Woo submit the following Joint Request to Extend Stay and Order Thereon (Proposed).
On September 17, 2007, the parties submitted a joint request to stay proceedings in this civil action due to criminal charges pending against claimant Ma in this district (one count of "Conspiracy to Manufacture and Possess with Intent to Distribute at Least 1,000 Marijuana Plants," and one count of "Manufacturing at Least 1,000 Marijuana Plants." United States v. Wei Jie Ma, et al., 2:07-CR-0025 EJG. Claimant Wei Jie Ma is now awaiting sentencing on those charges. Ma's sentencing has been continued several times, and is now scheduled on June 8, 2012. Accordingly, the parties jointly request that this matter be stayed an additional six months, until June 30, 2012. Assuming that claimant is sentenced as scheduled, the parties will then ask the court to lift the stay and fully schedule this case.
For the reasons set forth above, this matter is stayed pursuant to 18 U.S.C. §§ 981(g)(1), 981(g)(2) and 21 U.S.C. § 881(i) until June 29*, 2012.
