Ignition Switch Litigation Fraudsters Are Out On Bail No SDNY Trial In Sight Amid COVID

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

SDNY COURTHOUSE, June 12 – Alongside the multi-district ignition switch litigation, Christopher Hammatt, Susan Hammatt, Edwin Tanglao and Joseph Hoats allegedly created a fictitious $16.5 million settlement agreement to get litigation funding from Funding Companies.  

On June 12, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Paul G. Gardephe held a proceeding. Inner City Press covered it. 

 The defendants are all out on bail. The US Attorney's Office says it will be seeking a superseding indictment, with more charges against Hoats.    Judge Gardephe said, I'm not going to set a trial date now, there's too much uncertain. No trails until the Fall, if then. But let's set a schedule for motions. Mr. Duboulay?   

 Donald D. Duboulay replied, The problem is traveling to meet my client. 

    Judge Gardephe proposed, Sixty days? 

   Duboulay said, I'd prefer more...   (The indictment refers to Car Company 1, but it sure sounds like General Motors since that is the ignition switch litigation Judge Gardephe is handling.)

The case is US v. Hammatt, 19-cr-67 (Gardephe). .
