In SDNY Gun Case Defense Lawyer Discloses Contempt In NYS Court So Filing on Curcio

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

SDNY COURTHOUSE, June 15 – Omar Ahmed is detained on the charge of being a felon in possession of a firearm, to wit, a Glock 9-millimet semi-automatic pistol.   

       On June 15, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Lewis A. Kaplan held a proceeding. Inner City Press covered it.    

 Ahmed's lawyer Robert Walters informed the Assistant US Attorney that a Curcio hearing may be needed, in light of contempt sanctions against him in state court.   

Explaining the charge, Walter said that his client in state court got access to information under a protective order and the information ended up out in the street.Walter, as the lawyer, got charged. He did not want to throw his client under the bus. He said he'll be raising it to the NYS Appellate Division. 

 Judge Kaplan asked Walter, who is still not listed as counsel in the docket (the Federal Defenders are still listed, even though they were "only for presentment") to "submit a letter regarding a potention Curcio issue."

The case is US v. Ahmed, 21-cr-238 (Kaplan)
