Felon Charged With Gun Near Yankee Stadium OKed To Go Pro Per Now Bail Heard May 26

by Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Book Substack

SDNY COURTHOUSE, May 23–   James Garlick faces trial on June 5 as a felon in possession of a firearm, found with a gun on 162nd Street and Jerome Avenue by Yankee Stadium in The Bronx on August 27, 2022. 

 In 2013 after a trial, Garlick was convicted of manslaughter.s   Now Garlick wants to represent himself.

 On May 17, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Valerie E. Caproni held a Faretta hearing and determined that Garlick can represent himself. But there is no movement in the date of the trial, which Inner City Press aims to cover.

On May 19, Federal Defenders wrote it wanting out even as standby counsel, their relationship having "irreparable broken down." Judge Caproni on May 19 ordered: "the parties must appear for a status conference on Monday, May 22, 2023 at 11:00 A.M."

Inner City Press, after an 11 am Magistrates Court proceeding, ran to the courtroom and was helpfully told that Garlick will proceed pro per. Subsequently docketed: "ORDER as to James Garlick: IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that for the reasons stated at the May 22, 2023 hearing, the Federal Defenders' motion is DENIED. Although the Federal Defenders will remain as standby counsel for Mr. Garlick, the Court will not alert the jury to their presence or role. IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that, in light of Mr. Garlick's adamance that he does not want the assistance of standby counsel, the Court's previous direction to the Federal Defenders to provide a "clothing order" for Mr. Garlick is vacated. IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that the Final Pre-Trial Conference is rescheduled to Wednesday, May 31, 2023."

On May 23, this: "MEMO ENDORSEMENT as to James Garlick denied [74] LETTER MOTION addressed to Judge Valerie E. Caproni from Marne Lynn Lenox dated May 23, 2023 re: Filing documents and bond. ENDORSEMENT: Application DENIED in part. To the extent any submission Mr. Garlick wishes to make to the Court is too long to include in an email via Corrlinks to his standby counsel (standby counsel should, as it did with this submission, simply cut and paste Mr. Garlick's submissions and not make any edits to them), he must make the submission to the Court via regular mail or, if he can do so in a timely way, must bring them to Court in person. The parties must appear for a bail hearing on Friday, May 26, 2023 at 10:45 A.M. in Courtroom 443, Thurgood Marshall U.S. Courthouse, 40 Foley Square, New York, NY. Mr. Garlick must submit his responses to the Government's motions in limine at the hearing. His deadline to respond is, therefore, extended from Thursday, May 25, 2023 to Friday, May 26, 2023 at 10:45 A.M. The Government must determine whether Mr. Garlick has access to the discovery laptop and, if not, why not, and must file a status update not later than Wednesday, May 24, 2023 at 5:00 P.M. The Court notes that Mr. Garlick did not raise any issues regarding his access to discovery during yesterday's proceeding. Mr. Garlick is warned that any such difficulties must be promptly brought to the Court's attention. SO ORDERED."

 The case is US v. Garlick, 22-cr-540 (Caproni)
