UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, Plaintiff,
HONG THANH THI NINH and SI
STEVEN G. KALAR, Federal Public Defender, DIANA A. GARRIDO, Assistant Federal Public Defender, VICKI H. YOUNG, Attorney of Record for Mr. Truong, MELINDA HAAG, United States Attorney, JEFFREY B. SCHENK, Assistant United States Attorney, San Jose, CA, Counsel for Defendant Ninh.
STIPULATION AND  ORDER VACATING PRETRIAL AND TRIAL DATES AND SETTING STATUS CONFERENCE DATE
RONALD M. WHYTE, District Judge.
The defendant, Hong Thanh Thi Ninh, represented by Assistant Federal Public Defender Diana A. Garrido, the co-defendant, Si "Kevin" Truong, represented by Vicki H. Young, and the government, represented by Assistant United States Attorney Jeffrey B. Schenk, hereby stipulate that, with the Court's approval, the pretrial conference currently set for July 11, 2013 at 2:00 p.m. and the trial currently set for July 29, 2013 at 1:30 p.m. shall be vacated, and a status conference be scheduled for July 29, 2013 at 9:00 a.m.
This request is made because Ms. Ninh's counsel Diana Garrido is leaving the Federal Public Defender Office. Ms. Garrido expects that the Federal Public Defender Office will not continue to represent Ms. Ninh and that a panel member will be appointed to represent Ms. Ninh. Time through July 29, 2013 has already been excluded under the Speedy Trial Act, 18 U.S.C. §§ 3161(h)(7)(A) and (B)(iv).
Pursuant to agreement and stipulation of the parties, the Court HEREBY ORDERS that the July 11, 2013 pretrial and July 29, 2013 trial dates be vacated, and that a status conference be scheduled for July 29, 2013.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
