In Bankman-Fried Case CFTC First Filed Order Asserts Jurisdiction Over Crypto

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Maxwell book

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Dec 22, 2022 – 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.

  Late on December 21, the US Attorney's Office issued a video announcing that SBF was "in FBI custody and will be transported directly to the Southern District of New York."

  That ruled out the MDC in Brooklyn (EDNY) overnight, or Essex County Correctional Facility in New Jersey. As Inner City Press noted, there *is* the Westchest County DOC, with its orange jumpsuits. And, it emerged, he was flow into the Westchester airport in White Plains - in SDNY.

  Minutes before US Attorney Damian Williams' press video was released, the Commodities Futures Trading Commission filed an amended complaint and proposed Consent Order - which, notably, says "Admits the jurisdiction of the CFTC over the conduct and transactions at issue in this action pursuant to the Act." Proposed consent order on Patreon here. Where is the SEC?

The US Attorney's Office also released the plea agreements (signed December 19) of Caroline Ellison of Alameda (on Inner City Press' DocumentCloud here) and of Gary Wang - on Patreon here.

  Wang's, like Ellison's, has a large redaction. Does it comply with FOIA, and applicable case law about judicial documents in criminal cases? District Judge Ronnie Abrams, coordinating on transparency in SDNY, is said by several sources to be away. But the Internet, and ECF, are alive.

  But another question: where did the two plead guilty? Inner City Press was in and around the Magistrates Court all day. Before the Part 1 judge, former prosecutor John P. Cronan? Watch this site.

Here is the indictment, on Inner City Press' DocumentCloud here.

The US Attorney's Office is said to be negotiating a bail package with SBF - this while they seek and obtain remand for low income defendants for selling crack, or even K2. On December 21, the Office won the continued detention of a woman from Columbia seeking asylum following the murder of her husband (and, selling fentanyl) - Inner City Press exclusive here.

The case us US v. Bankman-Fried, 22-cr-673 (Abrams).
