Crypto Creeps Bankman-Fried Parents Get Unimaged Phones As Ellison Gets in Wrong Car

by Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Book Substack

LITERARY SDNY, Oct 10 -- Tenth day of October and in the SBF trial, Caroline Ellison took the stand.

She'd come into the building hiding under a baseball cap, and when she'd leave it would be into the wrong car on Worth Street, the pazzarazzi pursuing her and her apparently inept encourage through the traffic.

Some asked, Why hadn't the prosecutors taken care of this? At least provided some pointers?

  On the stand, Ellison was crisp and to the point, saying "That's right, that's right" again and again. But this was only the direct examination. Each of these stories would be picked at on cross examination.

You gotta *work* for that 5K letter. And it would be this same judge, when the time came, deciding just how substantial Ellison's assistance had been. 

  SBF's lawyers, perhaps sensing how badly this was going for them or trying to rattle Ellison in advance - the wrong-car retreat indicated that might be possible - began to object to more and more questions, as compound, lacking foundation, assuming facts not in evidence.

 Judge Kaplan swatted most but not all of these objections away. But he did not, as he had on Friday, admonish Team SBF, even during Everdell's renewed cross examination of Gary Wang in the morning. 

  Gary Wang floated out of the courthouse virtually unnoticed when he was done, now that Caroline had arrived. The house he bought was in St Kitts; the judge asked why he had signed for so many loans without knowing what they were. 

 Caroline on the other hand had gotten a $20 million bonus - and made a $100,000 loan to parent. A loan.  

At day's end SBF's parents came through the SDNY lobby to get their phones. Had those phones ever been imaged and searched?
