ICICI Bank Prepares Sealed Motion About Indian Defendants But Wants It Kept Discrete

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Nov 2 – India's ICICI Bank and its New York Branch have sued some dozen Indian business people alleging fraud and now seeking to file a sealed motion.

      On November 2, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Magistrate Judge Sarah L. Cave held an open telephone proceeding, of which public notice was given on PACER. Inner City Press covered it.  

  The proceeding had an ex parte, nearly private feel. ICICI's lawyer Adam Finkel of Sabharwal & Finkel of 250 Park Avenue was asking to file a motion under seal - and even to have detail about it withheld or made "discrete" in the docket.  

Judge Cave said she would consider how to describe it; she had asked who had called in, seeming to say she wanted to know if the defendants had sent someone to keep them involved.

Isn't that the point of a public proceeding, though?  

The listed defendants include Alpesh Panchal, Ami Doshi, Apoorva Doshi, Darshan Banuchandra Shah, Geeta Doshi, Genashi Gems Private Limited, Gurudas Patwardhan, Hiren Shah, Nihar Parikh, Rachna Doshi, Sanjay Shah, Shreyas Doshi, Shrikrishna Sant, Shriraj Deshpande, Trezza Jewels LLP and Vishal Doshi.  

The resulting docket entry, for now, states that "as discussed during the conference, Plaintiffs' motion shall be filed by December 2, 2020." But filed entirely under seal?

The case is ICICI Bank Limited, New York Branch et al v. Doshi et al., 19-cv-11788 (Abrams / Cave)
