Assange Visitors Sued Pompeo For 4th AM Violations Now Amend Complaint

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon  Substack

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Nov 30  – When jury selection was completed for the retrial of accused CIA Vault 7 leaker Joshua Schulte, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Jesse M. Furman told the jurors, Do not read or say anything about the case. Inner City Press was there, and live tweeted here.

On August 15, 2022 after conviction Schulte, a group of lawyers and journalist who visited Julian Assange in the Ecuador Embassy in London sued Mike Pompeo for surveillance in violation of the US Fourth Amendment. They held a press conference, and Inner City Press asked if they will seek emergency relief. Not for now (video here; Complaint here).

On March 20, the US filed its 42 page motion to dismiss, arguing among other things that Plaintiffs Had No Reasonable Expectation in their alleged conversations with Assange, and that the "incident" capture of US Citizen info during extraterritorial surveillance of foreign targets does not violation the 4th Amendment." More on Substack here.

On June 6, the plaintiffs filed a memo of law against the motion to dismiss, among other things quoting from Pompeo's memoir "Never Gave an Inch" that "I was sitting with Susan and Nick... reading an unclassified summary of the US government's rules and guidelines on extrajudicial killings," - Assange was being contemplated? Full memo on Patreon here.

On November 16, 2023 Inner City Press live tweeted the oral argument - the motion to dismiss seemed to stall, with letter due in a week. Thread

Judge: I'll take the motion under advisement. I look forward to the letter.

On November 30, the letter amendment was submitted, including "Plaintiffs hereby amend the First Amended Complaint by adding the following as a new paragraph 36A: 36A. Upon information and belief, Defendants’ search and seizure of the contents of Plaintiffs’ electronic devices was conducted without a warrant. Plaintiffs are not aware of any warrant to search and seize the contents of their electronic devices, and regardless, the search and seizure of the contents of Plaintiffs’ electronic devices conducted by Defendants was unreasonable under any circumstances. The Plaintiffs had not committed and were not planning to commit any crime and at no time posed any threat to national security. Upon information and belief, the only reason that Defendants searched and seized the contents of Plaintiffs’ electronic devices, including potentially compromising personal photos, emails, texts, and GPS data, was the Defendants’ personal animosity towards Assange extended to any American who simply visited him at the Embassy, including" - full letter on Patreon here.
