UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, PLAINTIFF,
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Judge: Hon. Garland E. Burrell
Date: April 6, 2012 Time: 9:00 a.m.
STIPULATION AND [PROPOSED] ORDER TO CONTINUE STATUS CONFERENCE
The parties request that the status conference in this case be continued from March 23, 2012, to April 6, 2012 at 9:00 a.m. They stipulate that the time between March 23, 2012 and April 6, 2012 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). Specifically, counsel needs additional time investigate the facts of the case, review discovery, and to negotiate a resolution to this matter. 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)(B)(iv).
