Man Detained For Bomb Threat at SDNY US Attorney's Office Has Letter Belatedly Docketed

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon

SDNY MAG COURT EXCLUSIVE, March 1 -  In the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York on November 29, a detention or bond proceeding was held by Magistrate Judge Stewart D. Aaron on a man arrested the previous day for saying he would bomb the US Attorney's Office at One St. Andrew's Plaza.

He made the threat inside the security screening area, dropping a FedEx box on the ground which had handwritten on it, "This is a bomb."

  Inner City Press is on it, the only media in the Mag Court.

 The defendant Taylor Cascio was appointed a lawyer under the Criminal Justice Act, or actually two. But they did not make an argument for release on bond, instead consenting to detention.

  The Complaint says Cascio previously "conveyed a false bomb threat to a security guard at the Jacob K. Javits Federal Office Building on March 10, 2022."

In May 2023 Magistrate Judge Cott excluded time prospectively, and unsealed then resealed a document apparently about competency. From then until this writing in February 2024, nothing in the docket. On February 5, 2024, Inner City Press published this question: where is Taylor Cascio?

 On February 23, an answer was docketed - Taylor Cascio, pro se, filed for bail, ineffective assistance of counsel, "to compel speedy trial and to set aside judgment of incompetence."

On March 1, Chief Magistrate Judge Sarah Netburn ruled: "ORDER with respect to [21] MOTION Omnibus Motion as to Taylor Cascio. The Government and Counsel for the Defendant are ORDERED to meet and confer in connection with this application and, by March 11, 2024, file a letter."

But the letter was sealed. Finally on July 8 three letters from Cascio to the Court were belatedly docketed, including one petitioning to be given the "full paperwork from this case," the next that "from the little Mr. Cascio has been able to find out about the charges against him, the case is unsustainable."

The case is US v. Cascio, 22-mj-9601 (Netburn)
