On April 28, 2021, there was a crackdown hearing regarding his arrest and questioning. Inner City Press tweeted it live here
and lower.

On December 22, federal supporters for Ray asked the jury for a quiz citing negative publicity “not just in mainstream media.” But the following sections contain redactions, after the words “Live Community Bookstore, and apparently a URL, because it contains a name.” But then how is it confidential? We will see what the tribunal does. Look at this site.

On September 27, Isabella Pollak requested an extension (time limit) or severance pay, noting the third team of lawyers and this discovery volume: 516,169 images, 1,462 documents, 1,043 spreadsheets, 320 audio files, 256 video files and 277 Internet files.

On October 8, the US Attorney’s Office wrote to Judge Liman that “the government opposes adjourning the joint trial for the long period of time requested by Pollok [but] does not oppose separating Pollok’s trial from Ray’s, keeping Ray’s trial scheduled for February 2022 and setting Pollok’s trial at a later date.

But Ray opposes the separation of the Pollok case. On October 15, the lawyer for Pollok’s Hastings on Hudson insisted on severance pay: “As Judge Learned Hand succinctly put it,”[n]o the accused has a recognized legal interest in being tried with another accused with him. ‘ US v. Bronson, 145 F.2d 939, 943 (2d Cir. 1944 (L. Hand, J.) ”

On October 18, Pollok’s lawyer wrote to Judge Liman asking him to change her release conditions, so that she could work overtime at Amazon, which no longer allows any electronic devices (like GPS bracelets). on the warehouse floor. The United States consents to this change.

And on October 19, Judge Liman granted the claims: [235] LETTER OF REQUEST filed by Isabella Pollok (2), addressed to Judge Lewis J. Liman by lawyer Jill R. Shellow dated 10/18/2021 regarding the request for modification of the conditions of provisional release. I am writing to respectfully request two changes to the conditions of Isabella Pollok’s provisional release: (1) Ms. Pollok has a 9pm to 5am curfew. We respectfully request that the curfew condition be lifted. (2) Ms. Pollok wears a GPS ankle bracelet. Accordingly, we respectfully request that the condition of the GPS bracelet be removed. APPROVAL: REQUEST GRANTED. Security changes approved. THUS ORDERED. (Signed by Judge Lewis J. Liman on 10/19/2021). “

But what about Amazon prohibiting any worker with a GPS bracelet, on bail (that is to say, presumed innocent) from working in its warehouses?

On October 20, Judge Liman granted severance pay: “ORDER as to Lawrence Ray, Isabella Pollok. Ray, 20-cr-110-LJL-1, is APPROVED. IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that, for the reasons set out by the Court in the record of the Status Conference on October 19, 2021, Isabella Pollok’s motion for an extension is GRANTED and the trials of Lawrence Ray and Isabella Pollok are terminated, the trial of Isabella Pollok to begin on July 18, 2022. “

On November 11, Veterans Day, the U.S. Attorney’s Office wrote to Judge Liman asking him to postpone Ray’s trial until February 22, to allow him to produce 3500 / Giglio material a month before trial.

On November 19, Pollok filed a motion to suppress all statements she made during her arrest. She said, “At 6 a.m. on February 11, 2020, Ms. Pollak woke up hitting and yelling at the FBI.” Then statements without warning from Miranda. What will Judge Liman do? Look at this site.

The case is US v. Ray, 20-cr-110 (Liman).
