Ari Teman Says His Lawyer May Have Spied For SDNY As Is Married To Prosecutor

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

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Dec 1 – Ari Teman, raising prosecutorial misconduct up to the day of his scheduled sentencing on December 1, learned on that day that his defense lawyer is married to a prosecutor.   

 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Paul A. Engelmayer held the proceeding. Inner City Press covered and tweeted it.

   From the first moment, Judge Engelmayer said he would not be imposing sentence in the proceeding. He expressed amazement that the conflict wasn't disclosed to him, particularly by the prosecutors usually so fast to request so-calls Curcio hearings. He discovered it as he prepared remarks about having known the lawyer.

  But a simple Internet search finds that defense lawyer Noam Korati Biale of Sher Tremonte LLP is married to Margaret Graham, who appears working an SDNY prosecutor in press releases.   

  Teman added that Biale and Sher Tremonte were specifically retained to work on Brady disclosure issues, citing US v. Nejad, US v. Ahuja and other cases covered by Inner City Press.

He also noted that since people are working at home, it is more possible for spouses to overhear each other's work.

So sentencing was adjourned, as were the Bank of America issues Inner City Press covered earlier in the day, here.

The case is US v. Teman, 19-cr-696 (Engelmayer)
