Judge Berman has schedule a pre-motion conference on May 22, 2013 at 3:15 pm to "set a briefing schedule" regarding the veto of Bilello by the court appointed Review Officer (RO) Dennis Walsh.
On Monday, April 29, 2013 the former Executive Secretary-Treasurer of the New York City & Vicinity District Council of Carpenters Michael Bilello, was booted from his $225,000 paid position by the RO for violating several union rules — including directing a schedule pay raise into the Welfare Fund without proper authorization and concealing it, and letting a suspended union member work at the Javits Center and then lie about it.
Back in April we reported that Bilello hired a big gun attorney, Guy Petrillo, (a former Chief of the Criminal Division of the U.S. Attorney's office in the Southern District of New York) to handle the veto. Last Friday Petrillo sent a letter to Judge Breman requesting the pre-motion conference and leave to file a "memorandum of law not to exceed thirty-five (35) pages in length."
Petrillo wrote, "the veto was issued on the basis of five separate allegations, each of which has its own factual setting and history. We will endeavor to be as succinct as possible, but believe based on our current draft that an appropriate treatment of the facts and law will benefit from the requested page extension."
