Drug Sentencing in SDNY Veers Into Naloxegol Derived From Opiate and Chevron Deference

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

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Sept 12 – Joseph Galdieri was charged in 2019 with high volume marijuana dealing and gun charges.       

  On September 10 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Jesse M Furman held his sentencing. Inner City Press covered it. 

 There was a lengthy discussion of how New York State law treats naloxegol, an anti-constipation medication that is derived from the opiate thegaine. 

 Things even turned to Chevron deference with regard to the DEA's application of this term, "derivative."

 There was push to seal some part of the sentencing, which Judge Furman rightly resisted.

Ultimately he imposed a sentence of 18 months, noting that Galdieri had a better chance in live than many defendants before him.

The case is US v. Galdieri, 19-cr-757 (Furman)
