STIPULATION AND ORDER TO CONTINUE STATUS CONFERENCE
JOHN A. MENDEZ, District Judge.
The defendant, EDWIN BALERO, through his undersigned counsel, and the United States, through its undersigned counsel, hereby agree and request that the status conference currently set for Tuesday, March 11, 2014 at 9:45 am be vacated and continued until Tuesday, April 15, 2014 at 9:45 am.
