#PanamaPapers case update: Two defendants want the government to help locate the "evidentiary needle in the documentary haystack" in a docket spanning 5.6 million pages.
Their motion: https://www.documentcloud.org/documents/5991962-Gaffey-Motion-5-7-19.html …
Background on the indictment, @CourthouseNews: https://www.courthousenews.com/us-charges-four-for-tax-dodges-in-panama-papers-probe/ …
It's unsurprising that the case file is so massive.
The #PanamaPapers was the biggest data leak in history, exposing complex alleged tax dodges globally. Attorneys say the conduct here spans three decades and "literally hundreds (if not thousands) of separate wire transfers."
It is remarkable that, in fighting charges of using Byzanthine ruses involving shell companies to launder money and defraud governments, the #PanamaPapers defendants are now complaining that the discovery haul is just too complicated.
