United States District Court, N.D. California, San Jose Division
January 22, 2014
United States of America Plaintiff,
Keith Larson Defendant.
Graham Archer, Law Office of Graham Archer, San Jose, CA. Attorney for Defendant Keith Larson
Stipulation and Request for Continuance of Status Date and  Order
D. LOWELL JENSEN, District Judge.
The parties, by and through their respective counsel, hereby stipulate and request a continuance of the status conference currently set for February 27, 2014 at 9:00am in the above captioned matter. The parties request a future status date of March 27, 2014 at 9:00am, at which time the parties intend to either resolve the matter or set trial dates.
The purpose of the continuance is to allow the defense to complete their investigation, and to permit further settlement discussions between the parties.
The parties jointly request an exclusion of time on the basis of effective preparation of counsel, as the defense's investigation of the case is ongoing.
Good cause appearing, upon stipulation of all parties, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that the status hearing currently set for February 27, 2014 in action 12-CR-00886-DLJ shall be continued to March 27, 2014 at 9:00a.m.
The Court finds that failing to exclude the time between February 27, 2014 and March 27, 2014 would unreasonably deny counsel for Mr. Larson reasonable time necessary for effective preparation, taking into account the exercise of due diligence. See 18 U.S.C. §§ 3161(h)(7)(B)(iv).
The Court finds that the ends of justice served by excluding the time between February, 2014 and March 27, 2014 from computation under the Speedy Trial Act outweigh the interests of the public and the defendant in a speedy trial.
Therefore, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that the time between February 27, 2014 and March 27, 2014 shall be excluded from computation under the Speedy Trial Act, 18 U.S.C. § 3161(h)(7)(A) and (B)(iv).
IT IS SO ORDERED.
