(Lederer, Ferguson, Furst) SDNY civil forfeiture proceedings
Aug 28th Lederer's lawyer to Judge Sands requesting conference to discuss effect of DiChristina case poker ruling
Aug 29th Preet Bahara to Judge Sands:
No meeting necessary because they "intend" to file a second amended complaint on or before the...deadline."
How to suck up: "Accordingly, while the Government is always happy to meet with the Court, we do not believe a status conference is warranted at this time."
Aug 31st Lederer's lawyer to Judge Sands in response to Preet's letter:
"We are also mindful of the Government's comments about filing an amended complaint that includes new forfeiture theories--presumably theories that were deemed unworthy of inclusion in the original complaint."
