In SDNY Ari Teman Motion on GateGuard Defendant Is Opposed In Shadow of Nejad

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Nov 10 – While many even most cases in the Magistrates Court of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York are sealed or have case numbers given only later, on September 6, 2019 Magistrate Judge Sarah Netburn arraigned four defendants in a case that even long after the fact was still listed as sealed: 19-cr-627.  It has since been

  A case back on k on September 6 that wasn't sealed involved Ari Teman who allegedly deposited counterfeit checks into a bank account in Florida, then transferred and withdrew $4000 of the funds from the same bank at a branch in Manhattan.  Back on June 20, 2019, by coincidence before the same Magistrate Judge who eight weeks later released Teman on a $25,000 personal recognisance bond, NYPD Detective Daniel Alessandrino swore out that Teman for the scheme used his company GateGuard Inc, based in New York, NY..

Why Teman thought he could deposit over $200,000 in funds from companies which exist but had not authorized the payment is not known. His lawyer is Joseph A. DiRuzzo of Fort Lauderdale, Florida, with a notice of appearance first digitally signed, then re-filed upside down. Inner City Press will continue to follow this case and has.

On July 24, 2020 a civil case involved GateGuard v. Goldmont Realty Corp. But at the end the issue was whether the defendant(s) targeted Ari Teman to the SDNY prosecutors, who are under fire in this and many other cases including US v. Ahuja which Inner City Press also covered on July 24. So we saidsaid, We will continue on all these cases. And we have.

On November 10, the US Attorney's Office wrote to Judge Paul A. Engelmayer opposing Teman's motion for post-trial disclosures regarding statements by witness Joseph Seleimani. The US Attorney's Office said, among other things, that "notwithstanding the Government's Brady, Giglio and Jencks Act obligations... the contents of any 'internal memoranda, correspondence or communications" sought by Teman would be protected by the deliberative process privilege."

But is that the standard for the Office's production to Judge Nathan in US v. Nejad US v. Nejad, 18-cr-224, in which Inner City Press has sought unsealing, in Docket Number 393? The sentencing of Teman is set for December 1. The case is US v. Teman, 19-cr-696 (Engelmayer)
