STIPULATION REGARDING CONTINUANCE OF STATUS CONFERENCE; FINDINGS AND ORDER
TROY L. NUNLEY, District Judge.
Defendant, TAMMY LEE, by and through her counsel of record, TONI CARBONE, and the GOVERNMENT hereby stipulate as follows:
1. By previous order, this matter was set for status on May 8, 2013 in front of the Hon. Garland E. Burrell, Jr. Due to the reassignment of the case, counsel are filing a stipulation and proposed order to place the matter on calendar in front of the Hon. Troy L. Nunley. Additionally, defendant moves to continue the status conference for defense preparation as discussed below.
2. By this stipulation, defendant now moves to continue the status conference until June 20, 2013, and to exclude time between May 8, 2013 and June 20, 2013 under Local Code T4. The GOVERNMENT does not oppose this request.
3. The parties agree and stipulate, and request that the Court find the following:
a. The United States has represented that the discovery associated with this case to date, and provided to defense counsel, includes investigative reports and related documents in electronic form amounting to approximately 2, 548 pages of documents.
b. Counsel for defendant believes that failure to grant the above-requested continuance would deny her the reasonable time necessary for effective preparation, taking into account the exercise of due diligence.
c. The GOVERNMENT does not object to the continuance.
g. Based on the above-stated findings, the ends of justice served by continuing the case as requested outweigh the interest of the public and the defendant in a trial within the original date prescribed by the Speedy Trial Act.
g. For the purpose of computing time under the Speedy Trial Act, 18 U.S.C. § 3161, et seq., within which trial must commence, the time period of May 8, 2013 to June 20, 2013, inclusive, is deemed excludable pursuant to 18 U.S.C.§ 3161(h)(7)(A), B(iv) [Local Code T4] because it results from a continuance granted by the Court at defendant's request on the basis of the Court's finding that the ends of justice served by taking such action outweigh the best interest of the public and the defendant in a speedy trial.
4. Nothing in this stipulation and order shall preclude a finding that other provisions of the Speedy Trial Act dictate that additional time periods are excludable from the period within which a trial must commence.
IT IS SO STIPULATED.
IT IS SO FOUND AND ORDERED.
