In SDNY Parnas Case Correia Wants End of Supervision to Travel After Earlier Unsealing

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Order

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Jan 25 – Whether any US government agency engaged in wiretapping not authorized by a court in connection with the prosecution of David Correia, Lev Parnas, Igor Fruman and Andrey Kukushkin came up near the end of a conference in the case on December 2, live-tweeted by Inner City Press here. More on Patreon, here. Inner City Press has opposed sealed filings - now possibly including Correia's pleas agreements whether docketed or marked.

 Noting Inner City Press' advocacy to unseal, Judge J. Paul Oetken has ordered the full unsealing of Correia's declarations, in five business days. Full order now on DocumentCloud here, including: "After considering counsel’s justifications for sealing or redacting the declarations (see Dkt. No. 128),1 [FN1: The Court also takes notice of the letter filed by Matthew Russell Lee advocating for public access to these declarations. (See Dkt. No. 126)], the Court orders counsel to promptly file the unredacted declarations on the public docket."

 And now, as advocated for by Inner City Press, here it is, on DocumentCloud here: "I am moving to withdraw because Mr. Correia has not paid me for any of the legal work I have performed for him. Mr. Correia retained me around the time of his arrest. Since that time, Mr. Correia and I have discussed fees on many occasions and he has expressed confidence that he would soon be in a position to pay for his legal representation. As recently as September 19, 2020, Mr. Correia said that he hoped he could soon pay his fees. But he has not been able to do so. Based on my conversations with Mr. Correia, and his continued inability to raise funds, I believe that his finances will qualify him for appointed counsel.. I informed the Government that I intended to file this withdrawal motion and that nonpayment is the basis of the motion. I have not otherwise provided them with the details in this declaration and I respectfully request that the Court accept it ex parte and under seal." 

   Correia pleaded guilty to two counts.

Jump cut to January 2024, when Correia wrote to Judge Oetken requesting an end of supervised release, saying the company he works for  has asked him to open a new division "with a priority on the Caribbean."

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