NYC Worker Charged With Selling Gun For Synagogue Attack Wins Protective Order Fight

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Maxwell Book

SDNY COURT EXCLUSIVE, Jan 25 -  In the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York on December 2, a detention or bond proceeding was held by Magistrate Judge Stewart D. Aaron on a man charged with selling guns to two men already in state custody for plans to "shoot up a synagogue," Christopher Brown, 21, and Matthew Mahrer, 22.

  Presented in Federal court on December 2 was defendant / gun-seller Jamil Hakime, who works with detained youth at the NYC Administration for Children's Services. Inner City Press was present, the only media (and only non-involved person) there. Live-tweeted thread (more on Patreon here) vlog here

Jumpt cut to January 24, 2023: the case has been indicted, and wheeled out to Judge Analisa Torres. She held a proceeding, and Inner City Press attended. Discovery is ongoing; the AUSA said the phones of the two co-conspirators are being reviewed and Hakime will get some but not all of it.

The Federal Defender said the proposed protective order is disputed; he will abide by it while Judge Torres considered the issue.

The next day January 25 Judge Torres rejected the US Attorney's Office's proposed blanket protective order: "ORDER as to Jamil Hakime: The Court has reviewed the parties' respective proposed protective orders. ECF No. 20-1; ECF No. 21, Exhibit A. The Court finds that the Government has not met its burden of showing good cause for a blanket protective order. See United States v. Smith, 985 F. Supp. 2d 506, 522, 524 (S.D.N.Y. 2013); In re Terrorist Attacks on September 11, 2001, 454 F. Supp. 2d 220, 222 (S.D.N.Y. 2006). Accordingly, the parties are directed to submit a revised proposed protective order by February 1, 2023. The Clerk of Court is directed to terminate the motions at ECF Nos. 2021. SO ORDERED. (Signed by Judge Analisa Torres on 1/25/2023)." Inner City Press will continue to cover the case.
