And… Marty’s Forfeiture Response Brief Is Consensually Delayed — To Thursday…

Mr. Brafman needed a few extra days (it was due today), and the AUSAs don’t mind, so here it is (entered this morning — in Brooklyn):

ORDER as to Martin Shkreli.

Defendant’s request for an extension to respond to the government’s forfeiture motion is granted. Defendant shall submit his response by January 11, 2018. The government’s reply will be due on February 1, 2018. The court will hold a forfeiture hearing on February 5, 2018 at 2 p.m. in Courtroom 6C South. Signed by Judge Kiyo A. Matsumoto on 1/8/2018. (Tata, Vivek)….

Now you know. Onward — ever onward; unless you are Marty… then it is just “sit in the can, dude.…”

    So, if one is a federal inmate, and you have Internet access that you pay for … do they let you access your brokerage account and trade stocks?

    I mean … if you can still do that, prison wouldn’t be so bad!

      My understanding is that only email and a few Legal information websites -/ and non-R-rates streaming movies are accessible via the jpads… no general surfing access — no web E*Trade dashboard… no social interaction media, at all.

      That is, once you are no longer just an accused detainee (unlike Marty), and in fact a convicted, incarcerated felon (like Marty).

      Given that he used the internet to threaten the former Secretary of State (his current jailing reason)… I’d bet the MDC orders say “no jPad at all” — not even a throttled one — for him.

      Still waiting on Ben’s brief in response. Nuthin’ yet.

    One would think at some point Martin will file for bankruptcy. He’s probably delaying it for as long as possible, since when that happens, his legion of fans will see he has no significant assets and become disillusioned … and drop him as their mentor!

      I think he thinks (preposterously) that his Turing shares are worth $30 to $50 million — though illiquid.

      So in his mind — he’s never surrendering those shares — and they’d be forfeit in the Chapter 7… even if the government doesn’t get them.

      I think Mr. Brafman’s fee is on the line, in this coming Thursday response brief… so we shall see!
