Forest Hills Health Fraudster Has Sick Lawyer but Says New CJA Won't Understand in EDNY

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Maxwell book
BBC - Honduras - CIA Trial book - NY Mag

EDNY COURTHOUSE, Sept 12 – Tae Jung Kim is charged with health care fraud as owner of CNS Physical Therapy & Acupuncture, P.C. of 108-25 63rd Avenue, Forest Hills, NY. He wants to plead guilty but his lawyer Nathan L. Dembin is so sick he can't come to court.

     On September 12, U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York Judge LaShann Moutique DeArcy Hall held a proceeding. Inner City Press on the EDNY beat covered it. 

  A request was made, but only by phone, to EDNY Magistrate Judge Vera M. Scanlon to appoint a free CJA lawyer to appear before her on September 13 for Kim to waive indictment.

  Assistant US Attorney John Vagelatos said he office wanted the CJA appoint in order to meet a Speedy Trial Act deadline of September 17 (already pushed back six times, he said).

  The District Judge said the request should have been made in the docket, and that she would try to issue an order appointing the CJA counsel on duty at EDNY today to represent Kim and waive indictment. 

Then Kim spoke up and said that another lawyer would not be able to understand his situation. And so, a more formal letter will have to be submitted.

The EDNY case is US v. Kim, 22-cr-343
