Dumb move by merlino if he called the juror by her first name i dont no how that will effect him. I wonder how they make the racketeering conspiracy thing work. I used to no if you were found guilty of 2 predicate acts you were toast. This case is so different from say the tommy gioeli case where it was like 20 crimes the colombo family did over 30 yrs. This case is a genovese gambling operation in yonkers a health care scam in tampa florida and the philly boss is on trial for it in Manhattan. Thinking a hung jury on some count maybe not guilty on 1 i dont know .

He probably thinks he's some kind of don juan or something and that she might be impressed with him or something...Well he's no Tom Selleck and she could have easily have taken it that he's letting her know that he knows who she is to intimidate her...Very stupid move by a very stupid guy !!

That may in fact have a paradoxical effect on the woman’s decision. Rather than feel intimidated or even flattered, the woman may say “ who the hell is he, i’ll show him”...
That was a dumb move especially if the woman is on the fence when it comes down to the verdict.

Jeff Canarsies podcast or whatever the fuck that was today was such a joke. Its sad like he has valid points but he just comes off as such a fan boy dick sucker its a shame. I think im gonna do my own podcast or coverage of this trial. I cant be there because I gotta work in order to pay back loan shark debts but I still think i can do a better job covering the trial than these jokers... Vegas Mikeys Mob Talk....coming soon to your mouf

Yeah. Kind of contradicts the whole "he's innocent and the Feds just have a hard on for him." crap that is bandied about.

Great job Moe! Also the post article is clearly overblown and thats what we were talking about with Jeff C-------,. obviously you are not following to closely and just dropping in to rip merlino LOL. Of course he is guilty of being a gangster and whatnot but this case is an absolute joke, anyone looking at the evidence presented can see that. Im pretty impartial and the only thing Ive heard that woild sway me towards guilty as a juror was Merlino on tape telling a bookmaker "you gotta give me something". Even that is pretty weak for one count let alone 2 RICO predicates

i figured somthing out. the prosecution is calling it east coast o.c. so they can fit all this shit under 1 umbrella. skinny joey the boss of philly. why is he getting any cutt from a gambling ring in yonkers how is he responcible for a health scam out of tampa. its used to be hes the philly enterprise a mafia family that consists of a boss underboss soldiers and capos. this is extreme. it makes you think maybe philly isnt kicking that much up to him or hes really greedy. whys he running all over southern florida to resolve beeefs for a associate of the genovese family. also wheres all the philly guys when rubeo is taping joey for 2 3 yrs. the more i think about it hes gonna be found guilty of the gambling ring but not the actual racketeering conspiracy which is a huge win cause that porks you. also the health care probaly not guilty. but all guess maybe hes found guilty across the board. but asaro beat everthing. even tommy gioeli bear everything but the racket conspracy he got hit off 18yrs. the genovese guy from queens beat the trial and the guy from florida farese won at trial.

They were looking like fools until the so called female from the jury comes up with he was calling her by name !

You guys know there is no love loss with Skinny but I think the guy was setup from the get go and I think this chick is a planted in the jury.

I have seen some amazing shit done by Feds and they will stop at nothing, they were shitting there bed and had to come up with something because Skinny was getting off until this shit !!!!

Check it. And this chick is like the T-1000. She has the capability to mimic Joey Merlino's voice.

And they got someone who sounded like Joey Merlino to say all those incriminating things on tape too.

Joe Colombo was right.

its the biggest federal court house in america where they prosecuted the guys behind 9/11 and every other terrorist trial. theres more cameras in that building then cbs big brother house. the judge had one of the court officers rewind the tapes and they all watched it. couldnt have been that bad or they would have revoked his bail or put him in the holding cell for the day. how did it get leaked to all the papers.

Moe I get it and you don’t have to go full on clown when making a point.

But it’s awful strange that no one else seen this no cameras picked it up and the case was completely falling apart .

Trust me I am so far from a Skinny supporter but this is one of the worst displays of your tax dollars at work .

Believe me I know he is not past something like this but not when his life is on the line with one word.

And Pmac is dead on how did it get leaked to the press ? One fucking guess !

Rubeo was also in Philadelphia and hung out with the guys. The Philly FBI office wasn't made aware of this and he didn't even wear a wire. The SDNY really fucked up the whole investigation. Also Merlino brought Lance to NYC for the party at Parrello's restaurant.

This is not how court works, though. They pull the jury if the judge wants to ask the defendant something like this. They don't pull the audience out. Merlino would have answered the judge in front of every reporter covering this trial--and since every indication suggests they either don't show or sleep through it, this happened first thing in the morning.

Point being, if there was a reporter there, he watched the full exchange and heard the court reporter read out the transcript. Meanwhile, the jury sat in a back room for two hours and wondered what had happened...and juror #9 surely said...nothing...right?

i thought this would be a side bar conference between the judge lawyers and merlino. side bar i watched alot of law n order. buti practice the bird law. but read mayo mans twitter he says the trial is wrapping up mid week one more witness. so merlino might be free as a bird come friday or toast.

The NY Post article says the judge addressed it in the courtroom

Quote
Back in the courtroom, Sullivan gave a stern tongue-lashing to Merlino, who earlier had denied ever greeting or speaking to the juror.

“Mr. Merlino, you are to have no contact with jurors, even to say, ‘Good morning,’ even to say, ‘Hello.’ Do you understand?” he said.

Merlino — whose wife, Deborah, was startled by a snitch’s testimony Wednesday that the wiseguy had been cheating on her — mumbled something in response, prompting the judge to admonish him again.

There is a good reason why Lance was introduced to the skipper from Westside .

Thanks Brock I did read that just got a little brain dead there .

From what I understand part of the gambling indictment stems from Merlino giving A whale from Ohio to a bookie in flordia . the bookies name escapes me at this moment but he plead out already. From What I gather merlno was getting ten percent of this guys losses . The guy was losing big and then when he won the bookie didn't pay him. He threatened to come to Floridia and collect the guys in floridia discussed having to defend themselves if the guy showed up . Merlino is contending he was not a bookmaker , As he never actually took any bets.

Where is Merlino staying during the proceedings? I doubt he is driving to and from philly everyday.
