In Elections Case Against Postmaster DeJoy A Powerpoint on Costs Is Shown on Cross

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Sept 16 –  In a lawsuit that alleged that "Trump and his Postmast General Louis DeJoy have sent about to ensure USPS cannot reliably deliver election mail," a new exhibit was presented on September 16, here.  

 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Victor Marrero held a hearing. Inner City Press live tweeted it, here:

Judge Marrero: Mr DeJoy's testimony is not crucial at this time. I also deny the request for subpoenas at this early stage.

AUSA Kochevar: The 3 US witnesses have been told to be available, but it may take a few minutes. Judge Marrero: OK, call your 1st witness.

Now the witness is Robert Cintron, 35 years with USPS

 Q: Has the postal service observed any recent impacts from "the initiative"? Cintron: Recently, we have bounced back to where we were pre-COVID.

Q: Why did that dip in performance happen? Cintron: An increasing in package filings. And sick calls due to COVID.  [With delay due to virtual hearing procedures, now Cintron being questions about USPS Service Data, ECF Docket 45-1

Q: Are you aware of any recent changes to postal police protecting mail? Cintron: No.

 Q: Are you aware that Postmaster LeJoy's background is in truckers with business with the postal service? Cintron: I am. Q: Was he hands-on? Cintron: He's knowledgeable. Inner City Press

Judge Marrero: I'm going to stop this questions, you are trying to elicit opinion. Any re-direct? No? Please streamline it with the next witness.  It'll be Angela Curtis.

Cross-examination of next US witness: So if a branch manager does not implement these practices, there's no consequences, right? USPS Witness: Sorry, you're cutting out. Cross-examiner: Is he cutting out for anyone else?

 Cross-examiner: Mr. Glass, if in fact you find out a manager is not implementing, no consequence, right? USPS Witness Glass: We hold meetings.   

  After the proceeding, plaintiffs' lawyer J. Remy Green filed the Powerpoint presentation entitled "PMG's expectation and plan" submitted during the hearing, on the cross-examination of Angela Curtis.  

It begins, The new PMG [Postmaster General] is looking at COST... The USPS will no longer use excessive cost to get the basic job done. If you get mail late and your carriers are gone and you cannot get the mail out without Overtime it will remain for the next day." See here.

The case is Jones et al v. United States Postal Service et al., 20-cv-6516 (Marrero)
