ORDER

Before the Court is a Motion to Continue submitted by the United States of America. (Doc. 166.) The Court, being fully advised in the premises, finds that because (1) a superceding indictment has been filed as of October 20, 2005 adding three additional Defendants and removing Defendant Kunta Kinta Goree (who has entered a guilty plea); (2) these new Defendants are properly joined in this matter and no motion to sever has been granted; and (3) 18 U.S.C. § 3161(h)(7) allows for "[a] reasonable period of delay when [a] defendant is joined for trial with a codefendant as to whom the time for trial has not run and no motion for severance has been granted," trial should be postp oned. Additionally, the Court finds that pursuant to 18 U.S.C. § 3161(h)(8)(A), the ends of justice served by the granting of such a continuance outweigh the interests of the public and the Defendants in a speedy trial. Therefore, the Court GRANTS the government's Motion (Doc. 166) and continues the trial of all Defendants until February 13, 2006. The time from October 20, 2005 until February 13, 2006 is excludable time for the purposes of speedy trial.

IT IS SO ORDERED.
