In FTX Bankman Fried Case October Trial Reaffirmed As Zoom and Pen Registers Mulled

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Maxwell book

SDNY COURTHOUSE, March 10 – 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:

OK - now US v Bankman-Fried case before   Judge Kaplan on conditions of release, VPN, Python, paid consultants- & 2 laptops of unnamed FTX employees? 

All rise!

Judge Kaplan: I have your letters. Let me hear about discovery.

 SBF's lawyer Cohen: Sounds like we're going to get a lot of material in March. And April. So we think the motion schedule needs to be adjusted.  We still want an October trial date.

Judge Kaplan: I'm happy the sides are working amicably. Now, the bail conditions

Judge Kaplan: I looked at the proposal of March 3 and I come to a broad conclusion and a list of questions. The broad conclusion, and it's provisional, is that even if we do all of these things, there is no 100% guarantee possible, given the defendant's liberty

Judge Kaplan: I am prepared to allow VPN for now, but I need an order to sign. SBF's lawyer: We'll prepare something. Judge Kaplan: It's like we're negotiating a trust indenture here [Lawyers laugh]

Judge Kaplan:  I'll docket this. Have a good weekend.
