SEC Sues Israel Firm Selling Cellular Interception to LatAm Police Now Discovery

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

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Oct 22 – The SEC sued Alexander Hurgin and his Israel-based firm Ability, Inc., whose biggest customer is "a Latin American police agency." The product? "Game changing cellular interception."     

 On October 22 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Mary Kay Viskocil held a proceeding. Inner City Press covered it.

   The talk was of discovery, and how to get it in Israel. Judge Vyskocil expressed sympathy, saying she too have been a civil commercial litigator.

She ruled that fact discovery is due by April 20 and that if no summary judgment motions are made, the proceeding on March 25 in her courtroom 18C will serve as a pre-trial conference.

The case is Securities and Exchange Commission v. Hurgin et al., 19-cv-5705 (Vyskocil)
