U.S. Attorney’s Office Blocks Case Documents from Ramapo Officials

The U.S. Attorney’s office has filed court documents, requesting a three-month hold on recordings from a case between the Town of Ramapo and a former employee. The town is currently under investigation by the FBI and the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission who have both subpoenaed records. The FBI raided the town hall in 2013, and has since remained for the most part quiet on the investigative process. According to the Journal News, U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara filed the recent documents on June 30, which state “The government anticipates it will complete its investigation and make charging decisions at this time.” Federal judge Cathy Seiber approved the request to block Ramapo attorneys access to recorded conversations from former finance official Melissa Reimer’s case in which she accused the town of firing her for being a whistleblower on inappropriate fiscal actions. The town has denied the claims in the ongoing court case. WRCR has reached out to town officials for comment on the recent action taken by the U.S. Attorney’s office.
