Today the sentencing hearing convened without the defendant, and today the Man of Steal died. We don’t have a definite story yet. This really screws his poor family, and it screws me, too. The criminal case against him has been taken off the docket.
Update 5/11/16: The U.S. attorney advises he has filed a motion and proposed order for the dismissal of the indictment, the usual procedure when a defendant dies before sentencing. I’m left with enforcing the civil judgment, a hopeless prospect. That’s $190,000 of mine, an untold amount of public funds and three years’ work down the drain.
