STIPULATION AND ORDER TO EXCLUDE TIME
The parties request that the status conference in this case be continued from August 31, 2012 to November 9, 2012 at 9:00 a.m. They stipulate that the time between August 31, 2012 and November 9, 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.
Approximately 83 CD's containing audio, video and paper documents were provided by the government to all defense counsel on July 6, 2012. All defense counsel need additional time to review the latest 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).
