BREAKING NEWS: Bowdoin Asks For Extension; Lawyer Says ‘Entire Matter’ Could Be Resolved In Agreement
UPDATED 5:06 P.M. EDT (U.S.A.) The attorney for AdSurfDaily Inc. President Andy Bowdoin has asked a federal judge to extend a key filing deadline until Sept. 21.
UPDATE 5:06 P.M: Judge Rosemary Coller, in a minute order just issued, has approved an extension until Sept. 14, not Sept. 21, as Bowdoin had requested.
Charles A. Murray, Bowdoin’s attorney, said in a court filing today that he had “engaged in continuing negotiations with the Government and it appears that these negotiations could result in an agreement resolving the entire matter.”
Bowdoin had been ordered to show cause by Aug. 7 why his motion to undo a decision he made in January to forfeit tens of millions of dollars seized by the U.S. Secret Service in a wire-fraud investigation last year should not be denied. The prosecution agreed to an extension until Aug. 28, and Judge Rosemary Collyer granted the extension.
Today’s Bowdoin pleading was filed as a stipulated motion. Prosecutors did not object to Bowdoin’s requested delay until Sept. 21, but Collyer approved a delay only until Sept. 14.
