I’m preparing for a trial on a significant drug-and-gun conspiracy in the Northern District of New York sometime in mid- to late September. I currently have a lawsuit against Egypt in the African Union. I’m about to file a lawsuit against Israel in Belgium. I’m still up to my neck in the debate and discussion about whether to go to the International Criminal Court for Palestine. I’m writing a brief on a trial I did in upstate New York in family court; we’re writing the sentence memo on Sulaiman Abu Ghaith, and I’ve probably got another ten federal cases that are in their final stages.” He smiles. “So yeah, I’m winding down.”In Cohen’s telling, the Trombly prosecution isn’t all that different from his standard fare.
