IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE DISTRICT OF NEBRASKA
February 6, 2013
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, PLAINTIFF,
PATRICK S. SMITH, DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: F.A. Gossett United States Magistrate Judge
This matter is before the court on the defendant's motion for a 30-day extension of time in which to file pretrial motions . Upon review of the file, the court finds that a 12-day extension should be granted.
IT IS ORDERED that the UNOPPOSED MOTION FOR EXTENSION OF TIME TO FILE PRETRIAL MOTIONS  is granted, in part, as follows:
1. The deadline for filing pretrial motions is extended to February 18, 2013.
2. In accordance with 18 U.S.C. § 3161(h)(8)(A), the court finds that the ends of justice will be served by granting this motion and outweigh the interests of the public and the defendant in a speedy trial. Any additional time arising as a result of the granting of this motion, that is, the time between February 6, 2013 and February 18, 2013, shall be deemed excludable time in any computation of time under the requirement of the Speedy Trial Act for the reason that counsel require additional time to adequately prepare the case, taking into consideration due diligence of counsel and the novelty and complexity of this case. The failure to grant additional time might result in a miscarriage of justice. 18 U.S.C. § 3161(h)(8)(A) & (B)(iv).
