FTX Bankman-Fried Has New Condition Imposed But Sureties Sealed, Opposition Filed

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Maxwell book

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Jan 3 – Sam Bankman-Fried of FTX was indicted in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York, leading to his arrest in the Bahamas on December 12, and extradition to the US on December 21. He was released on $250 million bond - and reappeared on January 3, see below - with the requirement of co-signers.

Now he wants them secret: "LETTER MOTION addressed to Judge Lewis A. Kaplan from Mark S. Cohen dated January 3, 2023 re: Request to Redact Names and Identifying Information for Certain Bail Sureties . Document filed by Samuel Bankman-Fried. (Cohen, Mark)." Six page letter on Patreon here -
Inner City Press has already opposed, here.

On January 3, Bankman-Fried appeared, pled not guilty, had a condition imposed and trial date set. Inner City Press live tweeted thread here:

OK - now Sam Bankman-Fried arraignment in SDNY. For his $250 million bond, he now wants names of co-signers to be withheld from the public 

Mark Cohen: He pleads not guilty to all charges.

Judge Kaplan: Thank you. I received this morning a letter seeking to redact the names and other identifying information - what is mean by this, Mr. Cohen?

Cohen: Names and addresses.

Judge Kaplan: I will grant that request without prejudice [Note: Inner City Press just submitted opposition]

 Judge Kaplan: Trial on October 2, 2023. I may move that a day or so later or earlier. But that's what I'm shooting for. Now, let's set a motion schedule.

Judge Kaplan: Let's say April 3. April 24 for response, May 8 reply

AUSA: We propose a new condition, specifically that the defendant be prohibited from accessing or transferring any FTX or Alameda assets

 Judge: It would address transferring what?

AUSA: Assets purchased with FTX funds

Judge: I impose that condition, I view it was warranted. Cohen: I'd like to respond. 

Judge Kaplan: Why don't we save it until you are back before the Court on this, which I hope it not necessary. Cohen: He was ordered by the Bahamas court -

Judge: Not material...

 Judge Kaplan: OK, we are adjourned.
