After DA Bragg and Mark Pomerantz appealed the decision, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit granted at a temporary stay to Judge Mary Kay Vyskocil’s decision, The New York Times reported on Thursday morning.
Mike Davis of The Article III Project who is also a former law clerk, noted over Twitter some particularly damning aspects for Bragg. The DA very much overplayed in his hand, and he paid dearly for it.
As Davis explains, Bragg could have merely objected to the subpoena, which would have left Jordan with the options to file a criminal contempt referral to the Department of Justice (DOJ), though we all know how that would have gone. Or, the House could have voted for civil contempt, though that could have dragged the process out if it didn’t pass, with Jordan being forced file a civil lawsuit.
The court also has retained jurisdiction over related matters, leading Davis to suggest Jordan should subpoena Matthew Colangelo, who was named senior counsel to the DA last December.
