In US v Parnas and Kukushkin Prospective Juror Says Brother Is Lawyer For Trump Org, 3 Jury Consultants

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Order Podcast Song

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Oct 12 - In the Lev Parnas and Andrey Kukushkin trial jury selection process on the morning October 12, one of the first prospective jurors said his brother is a real estate lawyer for the Trump Organization. 

 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge J. Paul Oetken asked if that would make the man less than fair. No, the man replied. But what will the defendants - Kukushkin has three jury consultants - say? Watch this site.

On October 11, Kukushkin through his counsel Gerald Lefcourt asked Judge Oetken to "allow the parties to defer the exercise of any juror for cause and peremptory challenges until a second day of jury selection, after the names of the venirepersons have been disclosed to the parties... to allow the parties to conduct necessary background research on potential jurors and evaluate potential challenges and strikes." They cited a 2015 SDNY case.

Late on October 11 the US opposed Kukushkin's request, noting that his "list of people and entities discloses the names of three jury consultants and a jury consulting firm" and asking, if Judge Oetken grants the request, for equal time.

On October 11 Kukushkin asked to exclude a slew of Government Exhibits, full 8-page letter on Patreon here.

On October 5 Judge Oetken held the final pre-trial conference in advance of October 12 jury selection. Inner City Press live tweeted it here and below (podcast here)

Late on October 7 the US Attorney's Office has written to Judge Oetken seeking rulings in advance to admit exhibits including "The Inaugural Committee Articles, the FEC Complaint Article, the Time cover, and the Russian Root Emails." Full letter on Patreon here. And now, song here.

On September 10, Igor "The Glue" Fruman pleaded guilty. Inner City Press live tweeted it here (with vlog; podcast here)

The case is US v. Parnas, et al., 19-cr-00725 (Oetken).
