Jeez, Avanatti is so petty. I made one little reply (of many replies) to Popehat...
Somebody said this,

And this happened. He didn't even take the time to insult. He's getting sloppy.

I haven't been blocked, but he doesn't seem to say anything worth reading. He's a really tough guy, just ask him. And miraculously, he hasn't done anything wrong. In other words, not worth one minute of my day. :nope:

Ruling:

https://www.courtlistener.com/recap/gov ... 3.63.0.pdf

In addition to the Government’s obligation to produce in accordance with Rule 16, Avenatti has two other avenues to review the material on the Subject Devices. First, the Government has offered to allow Avenatti to inspect its forensic copies of the Subject Devicesat the IRC-CI’s offices to allow him to identify relevant information. (Government Opposition,pp. 22-23; see also Docket No. 44, pp. 9-10.) If this review were supervised by the Government’s Privilege Review Team, there could be no danger that Avenatti would be forcedto reveal his work product/defense strategy to the prosecution team. Second, the Receiver has offered to allow Avenatti to review the Subject Devices under the Receiver’s supervision andwith the payment of associated costs. (Government Opposition, p. 23; Receiver Opposition, p.2.) Avenatti is incorrect when he asserts “the only way that the government can ensure that Mr.Avenatti has access to his files in order to properly defend himself in this case is to allow him access.” (Motion, p. 7.)

There are alternatives, and Avenatti has chosen not to avail himself of either offer.
Thanks pal.

And seriously, this is a guy who devotes an unnatural amount of time and effort to coming up with creative insults to total strangers. A guy who went out of his way to make himself known and disliked by millions of people who he seems he needs to insult one at a time.

Avenatti wants the presumption of innocence he denied to Michael Cohen. The irony is rich.

I think I will preemptively block Avenatti by sending a nasty DM. It seems to be important for him to get the last word with complete strangers. :lol:

How the Michael Avenatti Case Could Disrupt the Basketball World
Michael Avenatti might not be the most trusted voice, but all eyes will turn to him during a criminal case that centers on extortion and fraud. The Crossover digs into reasons why Avenatti's case could cause concern for the basketball world.
By MICHAEL MCCANN August 19, 2019

Michael Avenatti is not the most trusted narrator, but if the celebrity attorney is to be believed in a new court filing, a Nike employee approved illicit payments to New Orleans Pelicans rookie forward Zion Williamson and Boston Celtics rookie guard Romeo Langford while the two were high school stars. Depending on the trajectory of the federal government’s prosecution against Avenatti, these claims could become problematic for both players as well as for Nike, Duke University and Indiana University.

The accusations appear in a motion that Avenatti’s attorneys, Scott Srebnick and Jose Quinon, recently filed in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York. Avenatti hopes to persuade U.S District Judge Paul Gardephe to dismiss the four criminal charges that he faces for allegedly extorting Nike and conspiring with fellow attorney Mark Geragos to commit extortion.

If convicted, Avenatti could face a lengthy prison sentence. The maximum sentence would be 97 years. In reality, however, he would be sentenced to a much shorter term. The sentences for each conviction could be run concurrently, rather than consecutively. Avenatti, 48, also lacks a criminal record to warrant anything approaching a maximum sentence. Still, the one-time presidential candidate could be looking at years in prison if a court finds that he tried to extort Nike.

The reputation of prosecutors from the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York is also threatening to Avenatti. Among federal prosecutors, they are perhaps considered the best. Federal prosecutors secure convictions between 85% and 95% of the time, an intimidating data point. The high conviction rate helps to explain why approximately 90% of defendants charged with federal crimes cut deals and plead guilty instead of taking their chances in a trial.

For now, Avenatti is moving forward with a defense as he forcefully maintains his innocence. The longer his defense plays out, the more likely that players, players’ family members, coaches and Nike employees could be forced to testify under oath. They could be forced to explain emails, texts, invoices and bank statements that might implicate them in wrongdoing. As explained below, Avenatti could become a major worry for a number of prominent figures in the basketball and sneaker worlds.

If Nike was really paying high school players, that would be a big deal. Doesn't sound impossible.

He did not respond to my earlier Tweet. He only blocked me. Maybe he had the briefest bit of clarity and realized it might look bad if he DM'd me to tell me I was a nothing after I Tweeted that I thought it was odd that he spent to time to tell nothings that they are nothing.

Nike's misconduct is going to be irrelevant in the trial. The judge will severely limit anything relating to Nike's payoffs. Whatever Nike did doesn't excuse Avenatti's extortion.
