STIPULATION AND ORDER TO EXCLUDE TIME
The parties request that the status conference in this case be continued from May 25, 2012 to July 13, 2012 at 9:00 a.m. They stipulate that the time between May 25, 2012 and July 13, 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 all defendants 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) and Local Code T-4. Specifically, initial discovery has been provided to all defense counsel and more discovery, in the form of bank records, video and audio tapes and transcriptions is forthcoming in the coming weeks. All defense counsel need additional time to review the discovery provided, discuss that discovery with the defendants, and to continue their investigation into the 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)(A).
