Wengui Guo Sued By Logan Chen Cites 5th Amendment As in Strategic Vision Bench Trial

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

SDNY COURTHOUSE, June 3 – Wengui Guo, described as a dissident Chinese billionaire, sued Logan Cheng in Nevada for defamation, for his Tweets.

 Then Cheng sued Guo. 

  On January 21, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Katherine Polk Failla held a proceeding. Inner City Press covered it. 

 At issue were Cheng's discovery requests to Guo, about his income and also a story in his Nevada complaint about going to the well as a child to make sure his mother had not thrown herself in. 

 Judge Failla asked, Why do you need discovery on that?  

The answer was, credibility - then veered into Guo saying he does not own the [pardoned] "Steve Bannon" yacht is is filmed on, and which according to the plaintiff has left New York for the winter as it is not weatherized.  

 Judge Failla made some recommendations about narrowing the scope of discovery.

On June 3, after Inner City Press covered another Guo case with a bench trial in SDNY, Judge Failla held another conference. Inner City Press covered it. The number of times Guo invoked the Fifth Amendment, not only in the trial but in depositions in this case, repeatedly came up. Why does Golden Spring pay your bills, he was asked. Fifth Amendment.

The case is Cheng v. Guo, 20-cv-5678 (Failla)
