Assange Visitors Suing Pompeo Want Case Adjourned to Serve After Verdicts on Schulte

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Maxwell Book
BBC - Honduras - CIA Trial Book - NY Mag

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Oct 12 – When jury selection was completed for the retrial of accused CIA Vault 7 leaker Joshua Schulte, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Jesse M. Furman told the jurors, Do not read or say anything about the case. Inner City Press was there, and live tweeted here.

On August 15 after conviction Schulte, a group of lawyers and journalist who visited Julian Assange in the Ecuador Embassy in London sued Mike Pompeo for surveillance in violation of the US Fourth Amendment. They held a press conference, and Inner City Press asked if they will seek emergency relief. Not for now (video here; Complaint here).

On October 12, plaintiffs' counsel asked to adjourn and postpone the October 17 conference in the case: "We represent the Plaintiffs in the above-captioned matter. We are writing to respectfully request an adjournment of the preliminary conference in this matter currently scheduled for October 17, 2022 (the “Preliminary Conference”) to allow for the completion of service of process on all Defendants. This is Plaintiffs’ first request for an adjournment of the Preliminary Conference. There are four defendants in this action, two located in the United States and two located in Spain. With respect to the domestic defendants, Central Intelligence Agency and Michael Pompeo, Plaintiffs have the Summons and Complaint out for service and expect the documents to be served on these defendants tomorrow. Plaintiffs had difficulty locating the accurate addresses for the two Spanish defendants, David Morales (“Morales”), a Spanish citizen, and Undercover Global S.L. (“UC Global”), a Spanish corporation. Plaintiffs now believe they have the correct addresses and will serve defendants Morales and UC Global pursuant to Rule 4(f)(C)(ii) and in compliance with the Hague Convention on the Service Abroad of Judicial and Extrajudicial Documents. Plaintiffs, therefore, respectfully request that the Court adjourn the Preliminary Conference so that Plaintiffs can complete service and all defendants can appear before the Court at the Preliminary Conference." Inner City Press will continue to cover the case.

Back in August, Inner City Press immediately asked the United Nations, from which it remains banned, "What are the comments and actions if any of SG Antonio Guterres on lawsuit filed Aug 15, 2022 in SDNY alleging that lawyers and journalists visting Assange in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London were spied on?" No answer. 

On August 16, the case was assigned to SDNY District Judge John G. Koeltl, of whom Inner City Press has so far reported on 223 cases. It will report on this one. There was an earlier notice: "info for these parties has been modified: Margaret Ratner Kunstler, Deborah Hrbek, John Goetz, Charles Glass, CIA, Michael R. Pompeo, David Morales Guillen, Undercover Global S.L.," tweeted here.

It is Kunstler, et al. v. Central Intelligence Agency, et al., 22-cv-6913 (Koeltl)
