- The Speedy Trial Act lists a number of events, often referred to as "excludables", which may make it impossible to begin a defendant's trial within the time period required by the Act. The Act provides that the period of delay resulting from these events, called "excludable time", is not to be included in any calculations made to determine compliance with the Act.
