After Maximum Maxwell Verdict Chatty Juror Scotty David Calls London Then Gets Free Lawyer

By Matthew Russell Lee, Author Amazon Patreon Song
BBC - Decrypt - LightRead - Radio - Podcast

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Jan 5 -- It was a week after the Ghislaine Maxwell guilty verdicts but the chatty juror Scotty David was throwing it all into chaos.

On Kurt's way into the SDNY courthouse, he did a live stream on Twitter predicting that Maxwell's lawyers would soon file something with Judge Nathan demanding a new trial, based on Scotty not having disclosed his history of sexual abuse. 

 But that stream froze up and people told Kurt it was unviewable, he should use another platform. And it was the prosecutors who filed first, urging Judge Nathant to appoint a lawyer for Juror Scotty, whose number they didn't even give in their redacted letter.  

Kurt figured out the number, having live tweeted the voir dire. It was Juror 50, who was 35 years old, worked in finance and knew of Ghislaine Maxwell before the trial.

  Then Maxwell's lawyers came in with the first of two letters, this one more than half redacted, saying they wanted a new trial. Kurt prepared his own letter to Judge Nathan, his seventh, demanding the unredaction of these letters and related documents. 

  But when Judge Nathan acted, at 5 pm, she ignored (and did not docket) the request to unredact. She did, however, agree to appoint a publicly-paid lawyer for Juror 50. 

  Kurt asked, how could she do that, without a financial affidavit? Without knowing if Scotty even wanted a lawyer?  More here.

 The larger question was how the Scotty interviews came about.  From #MaximumMaxwell to #MirroringMaxwell.

#MaximumMaxwell (paperback here); soon #MirroringMaxwell.
