Bank Named Mega Says DFS Prevents Showing Documents to SDNY Judge Even In Camera

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - The Source

SDNY COURTHOUSE, May 15 – Mega International Commercial Bank passed information about its P&G Auditors to Navigant, and now an allegedly absolute privilege for bank regulatory documents is being cited. Inner City Press is on the case, which has the potential to simply disappear in three weeks' time into settlement world.

   U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge J. Paul Oetken asked to see the documents at issue.

 But Mega Bank's lawyer from Gottesman, Wolge, Secunda said that would not be possible, without angering the NYS Department of Financial Services.

  Judge Oetken said, one week to convince me otherwise with case law, or turn over the documents in three weeks. Or settle. A number was floated by the parties but Inner City Press due to recent unclarity is not publishing it.

The case is P&G Auditors and Consultants, LLC v. Mega International Commercial Bank Co., Ltd, 18-cv-9232 (Oetken).
