Amid Preston Hollow Suit Judge Proactively Calls Broker Asking If Conflict With Nuveen

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

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Oct 12 – Preston Hollow Capital LLC has sued Nuveen LLC for allegedly threatening and anticompetitive statements made about it by John V. Miller, Nuveen's head of municipal finance. 

  On October 9 U.S. District Judge for the Southern District of New York Judge P. Kevin Castel held a proceeding. Inner City Press covered it. 

 Judge Castel to his credit first tried to look into a possible conflict of interest.

 He emailed his broker - "I am by no mean rich," he said -- and asked of any connections with Nuveen. It turned out there was one.

  Judge Castel asked the parties to each submit a letter in a week if they viewed this as a conflict.

He offered a quote, that the duty to recuse is conflicted is as strong as the duty to serve if not conflicted. 

He said he was not looking to shirk work and sent the case to any other judge, but will await the parties' letters.

The case is Preston Hollow Capital LLC v. Nuveen LLC et al., 20-cv-5597 (Castel)
