IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT

FOR THE DISTRICT OF DELAWARE

In Re: Grand Jury Suspended :

Through April 30, 2020 :

Due to Exigent Circumstances : STANDING ORDER

Created BY COVID-19 :

WHEREAS, the federal government and the State of Delaware have issued guidance, restrictions, and mandates to limit the amount of person-to-person contact and to require social distancing in order to mitigate the spread of the COVID-19 virus;

NOW, THEREFORE, in order to further public health and safety, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that all grand jury sessions are suspended through April 30, 2020.

IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that as to the computation of time for the filing of an information or indictment as set forth in 18 U.S.C. § 3161(b), the period of time from April 1, 2020 through the earlier of May 1, 2020 or the date the next grand jury reconvenes is deemed excludable delay under the Speedy Trial Act, 18 U.S.C. § 3161(h)(7)(A), as the Court finds that the ends of justice served by taking this action outweigh the interests of the parties and the public in a speedy trial.
