Champagne Paul Goerg Was Sued By Rinaldi Now Talk of Overseas Travel and Feb 17 SDNY

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

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Dec 14 – Mario Rinaldi filed a lawsuit about selling Champagne Paul Goerg. Witnesses outside the US do not want to travel to the country for depositions or trial. 

  On February 11, 2021 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Vernon S. Broderick held a proceeding. Inner City Press covered it.  

 Judge Broderick described for the parties how an SDNY trial would work: no paper documents, for example, to avoid the spread of COVID.  

 One of the lawyers, in this open proceeding, asked to go "off the record" to say that an unnamed person has an unspecified medical fear, and "would prefer not to travel to the US."

Jump cut to September 8, 2021 when Judge Broderick held another proceeding, this time to talk about trial dates. For October 18, this case is behind two criminal cases, and another civil case. Judge Broderick said going forward on that date would require both criminal defendants to plead, and for the other civil matter to settle or be delayed. So it is, with the COVID backlog.

On December 14, Judge Broderick held another conference, and discussion turned to travel overseas, and to February 17.

The case is Rinaldi v. SCA La Goutte, D'Or et al., 16-cv-1901 (Broderick)
