For US v Doe Inner City Press Is Asked To Leave With No SDNY Docket Number or Basis

by Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Book Substack

SDNY COURTHOUSE, May 25 – A defendant was processed for fifty minutes in a sealed proceeding on May 25, 2023 in the Magistrates Court of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York.  

Inner City Press, the only media in the SDNY Mag Court, asked that the docket number and basis for sealing be put on the record.

The answer was, "No."  

   Others remained in the courtroom -- two Assistant US Attorneys, who before the sealing were discussing "suretors," implying that that defendant was being charged and released on bond, and at least one lawyer beyond the one who represented the defendant. 

   The lawyer who represented the defendant loudly explained why he had not yet effectively filed pro hac vice papers, that the state at issue required five days to give a certificate of good standing.

  Only Inner City Press left, and the courtroom door was locked behind it.   

The proceeding was not short.

It took fifty minutes, during which time in the hallways outside the courtroom Inner City Press struck up a conversation with the defendant in the next case, and witness what seemed to be a controversial celebrity emerge from the US Attorney Office's doorways down the hall.

More detailed on Substack here.

The case, for now, is US v. Doe, xx-cr-xx
