IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, Plaintiff, v. David Forkner, Defendants.
ORDER TO CONTINUE STATUS CONFERENCE
Based on the stipulation of the parties and good cause appearing therefrom, 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 specifically finds that the ends of justice served by the granting of such continuance outweigh the interests of the public and the defendant in a speedy trial. Based on these findings and pursuant to the stipulation of the parties, the Court hereby adopts the stipulation of the parties in its entirety as its order. Time is excluded from computation of time within which the trial of this matter must be commenced beginning from the date of the stipulation, January 18, 2012, through and including January 27, 2012, pursuant to 18 U.S.C. § 3161(h)(7)(A) and (B)(iv) [reasonable time for defense counsel to prepare] and Local Code T4. It is further ordered that the January 20, 2012 status conference shall be continued until January 27, 2012, at 9:00a.m.
