On Eve of Avenatti Nike Trial Closings Judge Gardephe Past 6 PM Rules On Geragos and Franklin Statements

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Decrypt - LightRead - Honduras - Source

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Feb 10 – In the endgame of the US v. Michael Avenatti Nike extortion trial, on February 10 the charging conference was held, until 7:10 pm. After going page by page over more than 40 pages of the charge, Judge Gardephe asked both sides' lawyer if there were more disputes to resolve. There were.   

Avenatti's lawyers the Srebnick brother sought to get into evidence what they called a statement against penal interest by Mark Geragos, that he agreed with Avenatti on the importance of the internal investigation that, they noted, the government is charging as an extortionate demand.

  Judge Gardephe noted that while one prong of the applicable test was met - Geragos is unavailable, having cited his Fifth Amendment rights not to incriminate himself - the statement is cumulative. Judge Gardephe said that Geragos said that same thing on the video tape, which  Inner City Press published, here and which is in evidence. Given the aversion of some anti-Avenatti (and seemingly pro-Nike, even pro-UN) netizens, more on Patreon here.

 The closing argument are on February 11 and Inner City Press will do its best to cover them. Watch this platform.  US v. Avenatti, 19-cr-373 (Gardephe).
