In SDNY Nazarani Has CJA Counsel Backdated to December In From Seattle Case Undisclosed

BBC - Decrypt - LightRead - Honduras - Source

SDNY COURTHOUSE, March 2 -- A man in from Seattle with an interpreter was assigned free Criminal Justice Act counsel Louis M. Freeman on March 2, with the assigned backdated "nunc pro tunc" to December.   

  Magistrate Judge Kevin N. Fox of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York asked Freeman why he should back date the appointment, and thus the payments.

  Freeman, a CJA counsel from as far back as 2000, said that he was the CJA on duty on December 13 and began representing the material witness, whose name sounds like Nazarani.

  But because Nazarani lives in Seattle and only comes to New York on the weekend, he believed there was no way to present the required financial affidavit.   

  Magistrate Judge Fox reminded Freeman that there are now video programs like Facetime and Skype, and to use those in the future. In fact, Inner City Press has seen orders signed in the Magistrates Court with only audio, when Facetime didn't work.   

  There was no indication, in this semi public proceeding, of what case Nazarani is a material witness in. Therefore, there is no docket number. But Inner City Press will remain "on the case," for now figuratively if not literally. Watch this site.
