It's coming up--and Rooster D'Onofrio got himself excused. I'm fascinated by it--Ed Jacobs as lawyer, but in NY? What's the charges?

Sounds like they are 100% gunning for him.....This case may be small potatoes BUT, even if he beats this in some way, they WILL NOT stop their pursuit of him.
I believe they will eventually get something to stick.
Scarfo Jr. wasn't too smart with his scenario but the governments hatred for his dad I am sure added to trying to get him.
Probably assumed since Leonetti flipped, so would Jr.......Seems like Jr. is stuck. I don't even think Jr. has enough dark secrets to even reduce his sentence? I believe he became a Luc after Leonetti flipped so he probably knew very little. Semi-trusted!

Look at Gotti!.....Now Joey use to be a very flamboyant boss but has seemed to calm down a little but, he seriously is the LAST boss from the 90's who is still technically on the street and in power.
Too bad Philly did not learn to do things the way the West Side did their thing......Did Benny Squint have ANY convictions or jail time? Talk about incognito!

Vic and Carmine do not count.
And DiFronzo is not active. I don't see them going hard after him.

Philly lcn dose not need Merlino on the streets to be successful...the admin has done a great job at creating extra positions that insulated the boss from the streets, if they don't put him away from a long time now they never will...I believe Thiers made guys in Philly that's nt on the charts

I think someone mentioned here a while back that one of the reasons Joey wouldn't plead out (in addition to the case being pretty weak) is that a guilty plea would result in a RICO predicate already on his record for future prosecutions.

D'Onofrio certainly had the world's most convenient heart attack.

Think it starts next week. Genovese asshat rubeo and a bonanno soldier pete something he fliped like last year. Both have domestics beating there girls after they started working for the feds bad look in the harvey weinstein era. The feds asked the judge not to allow the defense to ask them about it how weak. I hope merlino walks just cause of that. The da doesnt want the jury to know how much shitbags they make deals with. But if merlino is found guilty on the racketeering charge hes gonna get 20.

Well with the price well over a million $ for Eddie and crew " in Skinny case now for all the people that said Skinny was not the boss or there is no one kicking up or a street tax not going on I guess this rico trial has stifled many mouths.

And for all the people that say Philly is top heavy without soldiers is now a thought of the past .

The new guys in the family must be doing pretty well and not getting anxious and falling for any Feds trying to pinch them .

The one thing that gets me is the amount of cash the associates and the sheer number of associates kicking up is alive and well .

Now I don't get why we are not hearing more about a street tax" not like Scarfo but it's rolling and it's quiet , very surprised at this . Not about the number of men cos I know this area but the cash theses guys are getting and not reaching and getting pinched .

I know a few years back Skinny put it out there that he wanted everything down to a low roar and it has happened, got to hand it to him it's running smoothly!!!

Well all but this case .

I don't know if he has an actual crew, but the indictment shows he's well connected in Florida.

The indictment has Merlino recorded saying that he gets 10% of carmine Gallo book, and you have a couple of philly guys that relocated to Florida in years past like mcfillin and manfredi...FBI reports says Merlino was trying to build a Florida crew

No shit? I'm surprised Joey isn't just keeping his head down and collecting tribute, considering all the heat on him.

They been tracking Merlino ever since he was in the halfway house, there is no keeping his head down for him, it's just what it is... But we should find out more about this Florida crew during trial

Yeah he is a heat magnet. If you got something illegal going, you wouldn't want to go near the guy.

The trial should turn up some interesting stuff.

Joey probably craves the action more than the money.

With the trial a week out, is there any legal maneuvering going on? Any last minute motions?

I know they have a pretrial meeting a couple days or so before , anything could happen , but people say they hear Skinny say he will never plea so what's the sense of a pre-trial !

I just don't understand why he didn't have a trusted go-between in Florida, it seems like he was speaking t everyone direct! He could have called a philly guy to Florida to deliver his messages...it doesn't make sense

I've mentioned before on here that I worked a few times in Merlinos, and that Joey used to come in to other places where I worked.
It seemed like he couldn't finish his dinner because between fork fulls people were coming up and wanting a picture with him or his autograph.

How many here know that the old Merlinos is now a place called "Frankie and Dinos" and that its owned by Carlo Vacarezza (Gottis former driver and good friend).

There is a small section in the Boca Raton/DelRay Beach area that has a "presence" especially right now during the season. But its nothing like it was in the 1970s-80s when the whole Gold Coast, all of Miami Beach, Halendale, Hollywood, Ft.Laud etc. was crawling with wiseguys.
Back then there where dozens of clubs that were run by LCN. Guys shaking down valet parking stands, loans sharks all over the dog and horse tracks. It was like a mini New York down here in the winter months.
But it was always a little tricky to tell the "real" from the wannabe phonies with the pinky rings and the "gimme a Buca ova here honey wit da tree beans, gotta have da tree beans...."

I have not wanted to say much about this because I know some " well more then some of the players.
It's ironic that it also is surrounded by this pain cream scam up here though. The Pagan's are involved and many local police and firefighters.

There is also a murder for hire from the doctor that's behind a lot of this . I don't know if any of the players are connected to Philly mob but Eddie Jacobs is defending the Dr. behind the racket and Pegan's also.

Look up Dr. Kauffman Egg Harbor Township . He actually had his office right around the corner from Nicky Jr. And across the street from Chris S. not that they re connected but it's a small town for this.

Dave schratwieser is reporting Joey merlino's trial will be delayed a week because Merlino has a bad heart, apparently he has 2 blockages in his heart
