In SDNY Citigroup Continues Sealing Requests in Advance Analytics Case Now Before Judge Cave

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
Honduras - The Source - The Root - etc

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Nov 12 – A lawsuit against Citigroup first filed in 2004 has now been transferred from retired Magistrate Judge Henry B. Pitman to new Magistrate Judge Sarah L. Cave in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York.

    And still at a conference on November 12 many of the issues involved Citigroup through its law firm Cleary Gottlieb seeking to strike and redact documents from the docket and otherwise withhold them from the public.

   Back in May Inner City Press reported on a conference in this case, Advanced Analyics v. Citigroup Global Markets, at which then-Judge Pitman granted a Citigroup motion to seal, saying if the public objected, maybe things would be different.

   The question, of course, is how would the public know?

   On November 20 Magistrate Judge Cave began by proposing language for Citigroup and proposed intervenors to confer and jointly write to the Court if they reach an agreement. If they don't, Citigroup would have some 21 days to respond to a motion.

    Advanced Analytics lawyer Peter J. Toren, different than its counsel in May, asked to be part of the process including on the issue of how much would be sealed. There is also a pending motion for fees against Toren; his request defer it was denied by Judge Cave.  

Typically for this case, the conference ended with yet another document Citigroup wants sealed or further redacted. Toren said there are three versions "floating around." The one in the docket is repeatedly marked redacted, with Cleary Gottlieb for Citigroup to inform the court by the end of November 14 how much sealing it wants. The case is Advanced Analyics Inc. v. Citigroup Global Markets, et al, 04-cv-3531 (Swain / Cave)

Next up in December for Judge Cave, the Magistrates Court, from which earlier on November 12 this story: police set up outside 931 East 181st Street in The Bronx at 6:20 am on April 30, hoping to catch domestic violence suspect Gilberto Minaya on his way to work.

 As he walked out then south on Daly Avenue they apprehended him from behind.   "You guys are good," he said. "I didn't see you coming."

   In Minaya's waistband, they found a gun, a .32 caliber Ceska-Zbrojovka semi-automatic, loaded and operable.

   Now on November 12, Minaya appeared in before Magistrate Judge Katharine H. Parker of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York to plead guilty.

  He didn't have a plea deal but only a letter from the US Attorney's Office estimating that his sentencing guidelines, based on having this gun after being convicted of a felony in 2006, would be between 37 and 46 months.

    It is SDNY Chief Judge Colleen McMahon who will sentence him, on February 26. The case is US v. Minaya, 19-cr-487 (McMahon / Parker).
