[U] Marty’s Ultimate Fate: Now Delayed By Another Month, To February 21, 2018…

Updated @ 10 PM EST: The able Judge Matsumoto has granted this scheduling change by an order tonight, thus:

ORDER as to Martin Shkreli re Defendant’s Letter Request for Extension [493]. As requested by the defendant, Mr. Shkreli’s response to the government’s Forfeiture Motion [464] will be due on January 8, 2018 and the government will submit its reply on January 29, 2018. Mr. Shkreli’s sentencing will be adjourned to February 21, 2018. Ordered by Judge Kiyo A. Matsumoto on 12/15/2017….

[End, update.]

Because he is presently incarcerated, it is hard to imagine that he really wants to slow the sentencing decision and implementation order down. In a more typical white collar case, the person in Marty’s shoes is free on bail — so delaying sentencing hearings is usually part of the strategy. Not likely here. There must be a crush of other holiday intensive work at Mr. Brafman’s shop. [Marty cannot reasonably believe he’ll have an answer on any appeal by then, either.]

In sum, I cannot guess at the “why” for this delay, but I can conjecture that Marty will likely get day for day credit, for all the time he is serving now, at MDC Brooklyn. So — I suppose if one adheres to Marty’s view, he may be out not long after the February 21 new proposed sentencing date.

Me? I hold no such delusions.

And this simply means he won’t really know how long his incarceration will last until after Valentines’ 2018. Here is today’s one page letter request — since there is no reason for the AUSAs to object (the guy’s already in the slam)… I’d expect the able Judge Matsumoto will grant this request.

An image of it appears at right, in which we also learn that we won’t see Marty’s answer on the E*Trade, Enigma, Weezy, Wu-Tang and Picasso “bye-bye — given to Uncle Sam” motion until after Christmas, and New Years, as well. January 8, 2018 to be exact. Okay. Onward, on a chilly but clear Friday here.

Namaste — no new sign that the Greebel defense in wrapping, either.

    I think Brafman is busy with Harvey Weinstein right now and put Shkreli on the back burner. That can’t feel good

        UPDATED, Late On Sunday Night:

        …ORDER as to Evan Greebel. The juror seated in the #9 position, who was taken ill on Thursday afternoon, 12/14, and was unable to return to court on Friday, 12/15, has advised courtroom deputy Sandra Jackson this evening that she has been feeling too ill to leave her home except for a doctor’s appointment, and is unlikely to be able to come to court tomorrow. The parties are ORDERED to advise the court no later than 7:30 p.m. this evening whether, as discussed on Friday, 12/15, they are willing to excuse Juror #9 and seat Alternate juror 1 in her place, so that the trial may continue on Monday 12/18. The court would like to notify the other jurors promptly regarding tomorrow’s schedule, given that several are traveling up to two hours each way between their home and the courthouse in order to serve on the jury.Signed by Judge Kiyo A. Matsumoto on 12/17/2017. (Matsumoto, Kiyo)….

        And the parties have written to say they agree — but wish to see if the affected juror is well enough by Tuesday — if that juror is not, then they would propose seating the alternate, as of Tuesday.

        Now you know.

        In federal court they draw the jury pool from the nearby area, so it brings in a lot of suburbanites with a long commute. Being from the suburbs, they also tend to be more law and order-type Republicans, which is one reason some people say the deck is stacked against a defendant in federal court!
