United States v. Santiago

United States District Court, Ninth Circuit

September 20, 2013

UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, Plaintiff,
v.
DANIEL SANTIAGO, Defendant.

PETER GOODMAN, Attorney at Law, State Bar No. 65975, MELINDA HAAG, United States Attorney, , MARC WOLF, Assistant United States Attorney, San Francisco, California, Attorney for Defendant, DANIEL SANTIAGO.

STIPULATION AND [PROPOSED] ORDER VACATING HEARING DATE AND BRIEFING SCHEDULE ON MOTION TO DISMISS, SETTING HEARING DATE AND BRIEFING SCHEDULE ON DAUBERT MOTION AND EXCLUDING TIME PURSUANT TO 18 U.S.C. §§3161(h)(7)(A) AND (h)(7)(B)(iv) OF THE SPEEDY TRIAL ACT

RICHARD SEEBORG, District Judge.

The United States of America, by its attorneys, Melinda Haag, United States Attorney for the Northern District of California, and Special Assistant United States Attorney ("AUSA") Marc Price Wolf, and defendant DANIEL SANTIAGO, by his attorney, Peter Goodman, hereby submit this Stipulation and [Proposed] Order requesting that the Court vacate the briefing schedule and the hearing date of October 8, 2013, set on August 30, 2013, for a defense motion to dismiss this case. Instead, the parties request that the Court set a briefing schedule and hearing date for a defense Daubert motion to exclude the results of the DNA testing performed by the Serological Research Institute which the government will seek to introduce at the third trial it intends to pursue. The parties believe that the decision on the Daubert motion will have a significant impact on the third trial. The parties believe the Daubert motion should be heard before the motion to dismiss because the outcome of the Daubert motion will affect the evidence the government intends to introduce at the third trial and the defendant's argument that a third trial is inappropriate. The parties are proposing the following briefing schedule for the Daubert motion: 1) the defense will file its opening brief on October 18, 2013; 2) the government will file its opposition on November 15, 2013; 3) the defense will file its reply brief on November 22, 2013; 4) a hearing on the motion will occur on Tuesday, December 3, 2013, at 2:00 p.m. The parties are requesting a lengthy briefing schedule owing to the complexity of the issues involved in amplified DNA testing, the need to obtain expert declarations on the acceptance of such testing in the scientific community and the need for additional DNA testing on any remaining DNA samples that may exist.

On August 30, 2013, when the briefing schedule and hearing date on a defense motion to dismiss were set by this Court, the defendant did not agree to an exclusion of time. Immediately after appearing before this Court, defendant SANTIAGO appeared before Magistrate/Judge Cousins who released him to the Geo Care halfway house on a $50, 000 personal recognizance bond with a condition requiring him to remain there except to meet with counsel and appear in court. Given his release from custody, the defendant is agreeable to excluding time from the date of this Stipulation until the date all pretrial motions in his case are decided.

SO STIPULATED

ORDER VACATING HEARING DATE AND BRIEFING SCHEDULE ON MOTION TO DISMISS, SETTING HEARING DATE AND BRIEFING SCHEDULE ON DAUBERT MOTION AND EXCLUDING TIME PURSUANT TO 18 U.S.C. §§3161(h)(7)(A) and (h)(7)(B)(iv) OF THE SPEEDY TRIAL ACT

Based on the stipulation of the parties and good cause appearing, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that the briefing schedule and hearing date on the defense motion to dismiss set on August 30, 2013, are hereby vacated. Instead, the following briefing schedule and hearing date are set on the defense Daubert motion: 1) the defense will file its opening brief on October 18, 2013; 2) the government will file its opposition on November 15, 2013; the defense will file its reply brief on November 22, 2013; 4) a hearing on the motion will occur on Tuesday, December 3, 2013, at 2:00 p.m.

Based on the stipulation of the parties and good cause appearing, the Court finds that time should properly be excluded pursuant to 18 U.S.C. §§3161(h)(7)(A) and (B)(iv) of the Speedy Trial Act from September 20, 2013, until the date all pretrial motions in this case are decided in the interests of justice and to ensure effective assistance of counsel.
