Bankman-Fried Summoned to SDNY July 26 on Bail Conditions, Inner City Press Filed to Unseal

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Substack

SDNY COURTHOUSE, July 21 – 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.

On February 28, with Bankman-Fried free on bond, FTX's Nishad Singh pleaded guilty to six criminal charges. Inner City Press put the charging document on its DocumentCloud here.

On March 10, Judge Kaplan held a proceeding. Inner City Press was there and live tweeted, thread here.

On March 27, Bankman-Fried's lawyers filed a sealed version of conditions it said DOJ agreed to - adding that "the Government does not object to the sealing request." Full letter on Patreon here.

On July 20, the US Attorney's Office at 11 pm wrote in: "the defendant has sought to publicly discredit a government witness by sharing her personal writings with a reporter so that these private documents would be featured in a New York Times article published today. As such efforts have the potential to taint the jury pool, and could have a chilling effect on witnesses, the Government respectfully requests an order that limits extrajudicial statements by parties and witnesses likely to interfere with a fair trial by an impartial jury. See SDNY Local Rule 23.1(h)" - and see full letter on Patreon here.

On July 21, Judge Kaplan ordered: "ORDER as to Samuel Bankman-Fried: The Court will hear argument on the government's letter application, dated July 20, 2023, on July 26, 2023 at 2 p.m. The defendant shall be present. At or before 11 a.m. on July 24, 2023, the government shall file the proposed order that it asks the Court to enter. The parties shall be prepared on July 26 to address, among other things, the adequacy and continuation of the current bail conditions.(Signed by Judge Lewis A. Kaplan on 7/21/2023)."

On July 13, SBF's lawyers sent Judge Kaplan a sealed list of people, not stating even the number of people, for whom the security guard requirement - to show not sharing phones with SBF - should to waived. They argue, as they did with the co-signers, that the list should be sealed. And they say the SDNY prosecutors agree.... Letter on Patreon here

Early on July 14, Inner City Press filed to unseal the list, filing on DocumentCloud here.

The case is US v. Bankman-Fried, et al., 22-cr-673 (Kaplan)
