STIPULATION AND ORDER TO CONTINUE STATUS CONFERENCE TO NOVEMBER 14, 2013, AT 9:00 A.M.
MORRISON C. ENGLAND, Jr., Chief District Judge.
The parties stipulate, through respective counsel, that the Court should continue the status conference set for October 10, 2013, at 9:00 a.m., to November 14, 2013, at 9:00 a.m.
Defense counsel require the continuance to consult with their clients about discovery, and to conduct investigation. Defense counsel also require further time to meet and consult with each other.
Counsel and the defendants agree that the Court should exclude the time from October 10, 2013, through November 14, 2013, when it computes the time within which trial must commence under the Speedy Trial Act, pursuant to 18 U.S.C. § 3161(h)(7), and Local Code T4.
Counsel and the defendants also agree that the ends of justice served by the Court granting this continuance outweigh the best interests of the public and the defendants in a speedy trial.
The Court, having received, read, and considered the stipulation of the parties, and good cause appearing, adopts the stipulation in its entirety as its order. The Court specifically finds that the failure to grant a continuance in this case would deny defense counsel reasonable time necessary for effective preparation, taking into account the exercise of due diligence. The Court finds that the ends of justice served by granting the continuance outweigh the best interests of the public and defendants in a speedy trial.
The Court orders the status conference rescheduled for November 14, 2013, at 9:00 a.m. The Court orders the time from the date of the parties stipulation, up to and including November 14, 2013, excluded from computation of time within which the trial of this case must commence under the Speedy Trial Act, pursuant to 18 U.S.C. § 3161(h)(7), and Local Code T4.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
