SEC Sued Sports Memorabilia Man Who Gets Half Day Depositions But LA Dodgers Protected

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - The Source

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Jan 13 – Mykalai Kontilai was sued by the SEC for raising millions to develop a website for the audition of sports memorability.

 Now he is repeatedly firing his lawyers. Meanwhile, in the docket, "based on Dr. Saben's findings, will necessitate holding Veronica Kontilai's deposition in abeyance until such time as her psychiatric condition is ameliorated."   

 On July 22, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Chief Magistrate Judge Gabriel W. Gorenstein held a proceeding. Inner City Press covered it.

   The Fifth Amendment was cited, without getting much traction. But the defendant is again moving to fire his counsel. Judge Gorenstein said he is suspect.

On January 13 Judge Gorenstein held another proceeding, and Inner City Press again covered it. This time, Judge Gorenstein after a one-minute break after arguments granted a long outstanding SEC motion for a protective order (the request opposed seeking information about the Jackie Robinson Foundation and the Los Angeles Dodgers, among other things), but did grant the defendant the right to some half-day depositions.

 The case is United States Securities and Exchange Commission v. Collector's Coffee Inc. et al., 19-cv-4355 (Schofield / Gorenstein)
