In this order, Judge Shubb granted the motion of five defendants to dismiss with prejudice all charges against them in the John That Luong money laundering case for violation of the Speedy Trial Act. U.S. v. Luong, No. 2:96-CR-0350-WBS. The Court explained that the case against the five "was allowed to lie dormant for almost 19 years, with no finding of excludable time for at least the last eight of those years. To say what went on behind the scenes beyond that would be no more than speculation of hearsay."
