Frank’s Charlie Javice Accuses Prosecutors, SEC of ‘Hide-the-Ball’ Tactics – Bloomberg

Her lawyer on Wednesday accused the government of gamesmanship, saying the Justice Department has strategically asked the court to pause the SEC’s civil suit to allow the criminal case to advance first.

The move is “designed to gain advantage in the criminal action,” attorney Alex Spiro argued in a court filing. It enables the SEC and prosecutors to “play hide-the-ball with Ms. Javice as she fights for her liberty and livelihood,” and deprives her of a level playing field to “timely defend herself” in both cases, he said.
