Default Judge Patel Orders Alexander's Deposition by the USCF

Judge Patel today ordered that Gregory Alexander will appear for his
deposition to be taken by the USCF. The deposition will be taken in
front of a Special Master selected by Judge Patel so that rulings on
objections to questions can be made on the spot without having to
repeatedly contact Judge Patel for rulings. Alexander has also been
served with a subpoena duces tecum and will have to produce relevant
documents, like 3000 stolen emails, providing said documents do not
violate his 5th Amendment privilege.

Alexander's criminal counsel asked how it is that Kronenberger knows
about 3000 stolen emails and other matters involving the Secret Service
investigation. Kronenberger explained on the record that the Secret
Service has shared information with the USCF because the USCF,
Kronenberger's client, is the victim of a crime and thus entitled to
have information of the crime conveyed to it by the authorities.

Judge Patel, in an abundance of caution for Alexander's 5th Amendment
privilege, denied the USCF's request to obtain its files relevant to the
criminal case. However, much of that material will be sought from
Alexander at his deposition in-as-much-as it is back in his possession
since his computers were returned to him by the Secret Service.

I will make available the transcript of the hearing as soon as it is
available.

Default Judge Patel Orders Alexander's Deposition by the USCF

Some folks on the USCF forum think it is a waste of time to depose
Alexander because he will just take the 5th. But, the point IS to ask
the questions and have him take the 5th Amendment. Particularly
questions that center on his activities with Susan Polgar and Paul
Truong. If I were Polgar and Truong, I'd make certain I had a very good
criminal attorney on a fully paid retainer. Very dark clouds are
building on the horizon looking West from Lubbock.
