On Maximum Maxwell US Eager To Drop Perjury Charge As Other Abuser Cruciani Also Wants to Seal

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Jan 10 -- Judge Alison Nathan, who had yet to unseal any of Maxwell's Juror 50 redactions or to docket Kurt's challenge to them, had sent Monday as the deadline for proposals on the severed perjury charges in the indictment against Ghislaine Maxwell.

   But it wasn't until after 8 pm, long after Juror 50's lawyer had written to Kurt, that the proposal went in. The US Attorney's Office was it would be willing to entirely drop the perjury charges, if Maxwell's post-trial motions were denied.

  That is to say, no matter what sentence Maxwell got, or if she won on appeal to the Second Circuit to which Nathan was seeking to rise, the lying under oath counts that DOJ had chosen to put before the grand jury thereby undermining any evidence Maxwell could given against others higher up would magically disappear.

  Kurt wrote it up, then sent in another unsealing letter, this time to another judge. It was in another SDNY sexual abuse case, against tri-state dirty doctor Ricardo Cruciani. Kurt had been the only journalist in the Magistrate Court when he had been brought in in shackles in October, the month before the Maximum Maxwell trial began.

   Cruciani had been released on $2 million bond secured by properties in two states; he'd had two retained lawyers.

   Now Cruciani was asking for the tax payers to pay for his legal defense, but didn't want the public to see the basis for the implausibly argument that a doctor with at least two houses in two states could be so poor that he needed a public defender.

  Kurt has gotten the similar financial affidavit of Michael Avenatti unsealed, and the New York Law Journal and AP had written that up. So he emailed in a letter seeking to unseal Cruciani's filings, citing Avenatti, asking to be heard. But would he be? #MaximumMaxwell.

  The larger question was how the "Scotty David" interviews came about. And now, The Carlyle Group. From #MaximumMaxwell to #MirroringMaxwell.
