Judge Lewis Kaplan ordered the government to respond to Bankman-Fried's counsel concerning appropriate access to discovery materials, as well as a request barring prosecutors from using new evidence.
The U.S. Justice Department has produced “millions of pages of documents" related to SBF's criminal case, which his lawyers claimed was too much to access from jail before trial.
The U.S. Justice Department dropped a campaign finance violations charge on Sam Bankman-Fried's indictment in July, but said it will consider the alleged scheme in other counts.
According to Sam Bankman-Fried’s legal team, he was “only able to bring a small supply” of ADHD medication and antidepressants to jail following the judge revoking his bail.
Prosecutors and defense lawyers agreed to a bail modification having the former Celsius CEO under electronic monitoring and largely be restricted from moving funds over $10,000.
Rather than reinstating a count on campaign finance violations to SBF’s indictment, the Justice Department said it will consider the evidence as part of a wire fraud charge.
