STEVEN J. McAULIFFE, District Judge.
Defendant Muthalif's Motion to Continue the final pretrial conference and trial to on or after October 22, 2013, is granted (document no. 29). Trial has been rescheduled for the month of November 2013. Defendant Muthalif shall file a waiver of speedy trial rights not later than May 17, 2013. On the filing of such waiver, his continuance shall be effective.
The Court finds that the ends of justice served by granting a continuance outweigh the best interest of the public and the defendant in a speedy trial, 18 U.S.C. § 3161(h)(7)(A) and (B), in that failure to grant a continuance would unreasonably deny the defendant the reasonable time necessary for effective preparation taking into account the exercise of due diligence under the circumstances.
Final Pretrial Conference is rescheduled for October 25, 2013 at 2:00 p.m.
Jury selection will take place on November 13, ...
