IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
April 29, 2013
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, PLAINTIFF,
JOSE LUIS MORALES, ET AL, DEFENDANTS.
ORDER SETTING STATUS CONFERENCE
The parties appeared before the Court on Tuesday, April 23, 2013, in case number 2:07-CR-00314 LKK. At that time, the parties asked the Court to set the matter for a further status conference on June 25, 2013, as to defendants Jose Luis Morales, Enrique Morales, Teresa Maria Morales and Petra Preciado Morales only.*fn1
Due to the above-named defendants' counsel needing additional time to review discovery, the Court found that the time beginning April 23, 2013, and extending through June 25, 2013, was excluded from the calculation of time under the Speedy Trial Act. The exclusion of time is appropriate due to the above-named parties' need to prepare. The additional time is necessary to ensure the above-named parties' effective preparation, taking into account the exercise of due diligence. 18 U.S.C. § 3161(h)(7)(B)(iv); Local Code T4.
ACCORDINGLY, it is hereby ordered that the further status conference set for April 23, 2013, be continued to June 25, 2013, and that the time beginning April 23, 2013, and extending through June 25, 2013, be excluded from the calculation of time under the Speedy Trial Act. The Court finds 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).
IT IS SO ORDERED.
