Jacob Frydman Suit Against Verschleiser Filed in 2014 Comes to Trial in 2022 Amid Questions

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

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Oct 24 – Jacob Frydman filed a RICO and defamation lawsuit against Eli Verschleiser and others in 2014. 

 On October 24, 2022, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge John G. Koeltl was presiding over the trial. Inner City Press went and covered it.

    The defense, even after eight years, made an eleventh hour request for an adjournment of the trial. It was not granted.

 Arguments about the admissibility of exhibits are to be submitted in writing - while some exhibits are Internet postings, others are articles as to which hearsay exceptions might apply.

Judge Koeltl told the parties it would benefit both sides not to rule on objections in front of the jury and give the impression either of obstruction or overreach.   

While Judge Koeltl gave preliminary instructions to the ten selected jurors and alternates, one of the defense counsel came to the back of the courtroom and asked Inner City Press what its connection to the case is.

Press, was the answer.

 He asked, "Are you here because of Jacob?" 

  The initial complaint in the docket omits pages 2 through 21.

The case is Frydman v. Verschleiser et al., 14-cv-8084 (Koeltl)
