After 18 Giuliani Devices Seized & Redactions Cite Lutsenko Barbara Jones As Special Master?

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

SDNY COURTHOUSE, June 3 – Rudy Giuliani and Guiliani Partners were subject to a search warrant on April 28, 2021. On May 4, the US Attorney's Office for the Southern District of New York docketed a copy of their letter to SDNY Judge J. Paul Oetken with many redactions, including of the number of electronic devices seized.

On May 20, endorsed that day by Judge Oetken, a less redacted letter, specifying that 18 devices were seized. Photo here, full letter on Patreon here.

  Victoria Toensing had only one device seized. On May 21 her counsel wrote to Judge Oetken requesting oral argument on her still partially redacted May 12 motion.

   In other redaction news, filed on May 25 (but dated May 20), a letter by Parnas' lawyer Joseph Bondy purported to redact portions about the targets of the warrants against Giuliani and Giuliani Partners:

"In a chart, the Government identified that it had sought and seized a variety of undisclosed materials from multiple individuals, including: the iCloud and e-mail accounts of Rudolph Giuliani (11/04/19); the iCloud account of Victoria Toensing (11/04/19); an email account believed to belong to former Prosecutor General of Ukraine, Yuriy Lutsenko (11/6/19); an e-mail account believed to belong to the former head of the Ukrainian Fiscal Service, Roman Nasirov (12/10/19); the e-mail account of Victoria Toensing (12/13/19); the iPhone and iPad of pro-Trump Ukrainian businessman Alexander Levin (02/28/2020 and 3/02/2020); an iCloud account believed to belong to Roman Nasirov (03/03/2020); historical and prospective cell site information related to Rudolph Giuliani and Victoria Toensing (04/13/2021); electronic devices of Rudolph Giuliani and Giuliani Partners LLC (04/21/2021); and the iPhone of Victoria Toensing." 

 Now on May 28, this: "ORDER. The Government's request for appointment of a special master is granted. Giuliani's and Toensing's requests for relief are denied. The parties are directed to confer regarding candidates for special master and to submit proposed candidates by June 4, 2021. If the parties are unable to reach agreement on a list of candidates, they shall submit their own proposed candidates. SO ORDERED. (Signed by Judge J. Paul Oetken on 5/28/21)."

Now late on June 3, the parties have suggested Barbara S. Jones of Bracewell LLP, an SDNY Judge from 1995 to 2013.
