In SDNY Bankruptcy Appeal Judge Liman Intimates Victor Worms Engaged In Self Help

BBC - Decrypt - LightRead - Honduras - Source

SDNY COURTHOUSE, March 9 -- A bankruptcy appeal before U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Lewis J. Liman on March 9 got personal, and potentially dangers, for appellant Victor A. Worms.

  Philadephia lawyer Bruce S. Marks at length criticized Worms, sitting two seats away from him in Judge Liman's courtroom where Inner City Press was the only media.

    Marks represents one Yuri Vladimirovich Rozhkov. He argued among other things that a $34,000 sanctions order was not criminal and therefore did not trigger full due process protections.   

Worms in his five minutes at the end said he had no idea that the $34,000 were on the table. Judge Liman said while Worms might not like what he was about to say, he believe he had been on notice and had engaged in "self-help" in not complying with the SDNY Bankruptcy Court order of then-Bankruptcy (now District) Judge Mary Kay Vyskocil.  

 After the proceeding ended and Inner City Press left, Judge Liman issued an order calling on Marks to by March 11 at 5 pm file a three page letter with cases addressed to the question whether FRCP 27 sanctions are appropriate for failure to obey a Rule 45 subpoena or an order related to it, and two other questions. 

 Worms is to file his opposition by March 13. The case is entitled Markus v. Rozhkov, 19-cv-9611 (Liman).
