IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
February 4, 2013
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Hon. Lawrence K. Karlton
ORDER EXCLUDING TIME UNDER THE
SPEEDY TRIAL ACT
Date: February 5, 2013
Time: 9:15 a.m.
Hon. Lawrence K. Karlton
On January 29, 2013, the defendant appeared before the Court and requested the appointment of new counsel. The defendant's request was granted, and a hearing to address status of counsel was set for February 5, 2013. Based upon the foregoing, the ends of justice are served by the Court excluding the time between January 29, 2013, and February 5, 2013, so that new counsel may be appointed for the defendant and that new counsel may begin to become familiar with the discovery previously produced in this case. 18 U.S.C. § 3161(h)(7)(B)(iv) (local Code T4).
Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that: Time shall be excluded from computation under the Speedy Trial
Act from January 29, 2013, through February 5, 2013, so that the defendant may obtain new appointed counsel. The interests of justice served by granting this continuance and excluding time under the Speedy Trial Act outweigh the best interests of the public and the defendants in a speedy trial.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
