Gigi Jordan Convicted Of Killing Son Now Freed On Bond In SDNY For Closed Courtroom

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

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Dec 9 – The case of Gigi Jordan, convicted of the death of her 8-year old autistic son in a trial from which the press was excluded, came back on December 9 to U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Magistrate Judge Sarah L. Cave.

Inner City Press covered in on June 2, here

Now a challenge to the closure of courtroom in 2014 murder trial of Gigi Jordan is being heard by SDNY Magistrate Court Judge Sarah Cave. Jordan's lawyer says the ouster of press and spectators was a "structural error" that doesn't require showing harm. 

 Judge Cave asks if this might not have been trivial error. Judge Solomon ordered all press and spectators out so that the prosecutor could accuse Jordan or her legal team as being involved in a website called "The Inadmissible Truth."   

Now on December 9, Gigi Jordan was back, asking to be released from the Essex County jail by Judge Cave. Inner City Press again covered it.

 Assistant DA Vincent Rivellese said, "We do believe we have a meritorious appeal... We do intend to retry her if the appeal fails.”  

Judge Cave ordered Gigi Jordan freed to home detention, saying to hurry to 500 Pearl Street to get the ankle bracelet put on. That will apparently take place on December 10 at 10 am.

There is a $250,000 bond, co-signed by three financially responsible people and secured by $100,000 in cash or property, to be perfected in five business days.

The case is Jordan v. Lamanna, 18-cv-10868 (Cave)
