USA v. Robert Brockman: USA’s Opposition to Tangarra’s Motion to Strike

USA’s Opposition to Motion to Strike by Bermuda-domiciled Tangarra Consultants Ltd. in USA v. Robert T. Brockman at the U. S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas.

Editor’s Note: This document, which is publicly-available from federal court in the United States, is the subject of ongoing legal proceedings at Bermuda Supreme Court in which Tangarra’s principal, Evatt Tamine, an Australian lawyer who provided services to Brockman (a software tycoon who was criminally indicted in the US for an alleged $2 billion tax fraud), obtained an injunction that legally prohibits Bermuda Press (Holdings) Ltd., the publisher of local daily newspaper The Royal Gazette, from publishing an exhibit to the document, specifically a 56-page affidavit by Tamine, who is a self-described “cooperating witness” in the US criminal action against Brockman. Bermuda Judge Larry Mussenden ruled that “the confidentiality” of Tamine’s affidavit had not been lost by its “limited publication” on the US Court’s website. To eliminate that as a credible argument, OffshoreAlert has today not only published the contentious document but made it available to everyone for free (both subscribers and non-subscribers). We do so in the public interest. Bermuda Supreme Court has a long history of draconian secrecy, first by denying the general public access to any writs for over 40 years and then, after Bermuda’s Chief Justice acknowledged in 2015 that the practice was essentially illegal, continuing to seal entire business-related cases and writs on a disturbingly-high scale, an inevitable consequence of which is that questionable conduct by Bermuda entities is concealed from existing clients, potential clients, and everyone else.
