Lambrakis Sold Oxy But Fatico Hearing Pushed Back As SDNY Judge Pauley Cites EDNY

SDNY COURTHOUSE, April 20 – Emmanuel Lambrakis pled guilty to having illegal prescribed oxycodone without a legitimate media purpose.

  Now amid the Covid-19 pandemic his Fatico hearing has been indefinitely postponed.

 In a September 4 proceeding covered by Inner City Press, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge William A. Pauley cited the closure of the Eastern District of New York courthouse due to COVID incidents. The this: " Minute Entry for proceedings held before Judge William H. Pauley, III: Status Conference as to Emmanuel Lambrakis held on 9/4/2020. Teleconference held with Attorneys Peter Brill, Esq. and Robert Caliendo, Esq. on behalf of the defendant also present on the call. AUSAs Ryan Finkel and Sarah Mortazavi present. onference held regarding Fatico hearing. Fatico hearing adjourned sine die. Further conference scheduled for November 17, 2020 at 11:00 a.m. Parties to submit a joint letter by November 5, 2020."

Back in April Judge Pauley had several questions for Assistant US Attorneys Ryan B. Finkel and Sarah Mortazavi.  

Why if they previously said Lambrakis was a risk of flight had they change these position now? Did Lambrakis and his proposed surety, his wife, filed tax returns for 2016, 2017 and 2018? Judge Pauley wants to see them. And the previous sureties who traveled to Greece, had they returned?

   One of Lambrakis' two CJA lawyers answer that one of the sureties had returned. Judge Pauley asked for further written submissions, noting that since Lambrakis was under quarantine he could not be released until April 28 in any event.

   One of Lambrakis' lawyer says he had a trial before Judge Dearie in the EDNY on July 6. Judge Pauley said he doubted there was be jury trial by July 6, but nevertheless pushed the non-jury Fatico hearing back to July 28. And now, it is sine die. The case is US v. Lambrakis, 17-cr-208 (Pauley).
