IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS
May 15, 2006
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA PLAINTIFF,
EVERETT O. BAKER, DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Stiehl, District Judge
Before the Court is defendant's objection to the government's motion for interlocutory sale (Doc. 316). The Court entered an Order on April 3, 2006, granting the government's motion (Doc. 317). Defendant's objection was filed on April 24, 2006; therefore the Court construes defendant's objection to be a motion to reconsider.
Upon review of the record, the Court GRANTS defendant's motion to reconsider. In light of the pending motions in the companion civil case, Baker v. United States, 02-115-WDS, the Court FINDS that it is appropriate to stay the interlocutory sale of the subject property in this criminal action pending the resolution of the civil habeas action. Accordingly, the Court VACATES and SETS ASIDE its order of April 3, 2006, and RESERVES RULING on the government's motion for interlocutory sale.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
WILLIAM D. STIEHL DISTRICT JUDGE
