Jul 27 2017

If you got that email from Mr. Richardson, you'd be creeped out about it. Who sends an email to someone like that that you're not having a sexual relationship with?feedback

Jul 27 2017

You did not get the truth from Mr. Richardson. What are we doing? He's old enough to be his father. He's chairman of the board!feedback

Jul 27 2017 - Homosexuality

What didn't Steve Richardson do for the two years he was on the board except try to seduce Martin Shkreli? I don't care whether you're gay, or not gay, or straight or bisexual. It's not our business whether Steve Richardson's gay.feedback

Jul 27 2017

When it made a fortune and it became successful ... he made them not whole, he made them richer than they already are.feedback

Jul 27 2017

If you're committing fraud, you don't care about your victims. He's not a Ponzi guy that takes the money and is buying Cadillacs and yachts. No one who invested with Martin Shkreli ever suffered any economic harm. He's an honest kid. Some investors got ignored by Martin Shkreli for days.feedback

Jul 27 2017

He's not charged with aggravation. It's not a crime to aggravate someone. Every single witness says there's something wrong with Martin Shkreli.feedback

Jul 27 2017

Why did he sleep in his office in a sleeping bag for two years to make Retrophin a dazzling success?feedback

Jul 27 2017

Jul 04 2017

Mr. Shkreli's comments were not intended to disrupt the proceedings. Rather they are defensive measures taken by him in response to what he perceives to be highly prejudicial one-sided coverage of his trial.feedback

Jul 04 2017 - Twitter

Rather his comments are the somewhat natural, though unfortunate, consequence of a young man with a demonstrated history of significant anxiety being at the center of a supremely difficult time in his life. In fairness to Mr. Shkreli, the Court should be aware that certain representatives of the press have gone out of their way to try to 'bait' Mr. Shkreli into making public statements that we all have worked very hard to avoid.feedback

Jul 04 2017 - Twitter

Having said that, we also note that Mr. Shkreli is under enormous pressure that is compounded by his clearly frail emotional state. We have spoken to Mr. Shkreli and we will make every effort to remove this issue from the case. We object strongly to the gag order.feedback

Jul 04 2017

I'm hoping he doesn't do it ever again. I don't think anything Martin says by now is going to affect the case one way or the other, but I would very much appreciate it if he did not talk to the press because sometimes he doesn't have a filter.feedback

Jul 04 2017

While I may wish that Mr. Shkreli refrain from any comments to the press, and I have said so publicly.feedback

Jun 30 2017

This is what you reviewed with your lawyer and signed. Maybe he's just nuts, but that doesn't legally make him guilty.feedback

Jun 28 2017

The government's going to stand up and give you 100 million reasons to convict Mr. Shkreli. I'm going give you one good reason to acquit him... he's not guilty.feedback

Jun 28 2017

As Lady Gaga said, he was born this way. You wanna call him names? Call him names. Just don't call him guilty. Cause he's not guilty.feedback

Jun 28 2017 - Homosexuality

Whether Martin is gay or straight or bisexual is irrelevant; it's 2017. Get a life, board of Retrophin. The Retrophin board? A bunch of thugs.feedback

Jun 28 2017

Maybe he's just nuts, but that doesn't make you guilty.feedback

Jun 28 2017

Buckle up your seatbelts, ladies and gentleman; you're in for a good ride.feedback

Jun 28 2017

The question is going to be whether the case is nuts: Nobody was defrauded, nobody lost any money.feedback

Jun 28 2017

Is he strange? Yes. Will you find him weird? Yes. But Martin Shkreli, despite all his flaws and dysfunctional personality, is brilliant beyond words.feedback

Jun 28 2017

Is he strange? Yes. Every single government witness will concur that Martin Shkreli, despite his flaws and his personality, is brilliant beyond words.feedback

Jun 27 2017 - Twitter

I don't think he's afraid of my client. I think he's afraid of his wife.feedback

Jun 27 2017 - Twitter

Unfortunately, the Twitter history is just horrific.feedback

Jun 27 2017

Jun 27 2017

Will not stop people from having bad views of Mr. Shkreli.feedback

Jun 27 2017

Mr. Shkreli, God bless him, has created part of the problem.feedback

Jun 22 2017

There is a motive, that will become crystal clear when people like Aselage testify.feedback

Jun 22 2017

When people tweet, they don't always mean what they say.feedback

Jun 16 2017

We believe that $2,000,000 is more than sufficient to secure Mr. Shkreli's continued appearance in this case. At this time, Mr. Shkreli must pay his civil attorneys, Fox Rothschild ... for legal work related to this case and to other legal matters. He also owes [REDACTED] to Marks Paneth, forensic accountants who were retained to assist Mr. Shkreli in responsibly addressing certain claims against him by the IRS and [New York state] tax authorities.feedback

May 04 2017

I know some very prominent criminal lawyers who have very good reputations who have never heard the words 'not guilty' in 20 years. That doesn't mean that they're not good criminal defense lawyers, but Gus had that extra ounce of perfection that caused him to win more than most. He was eloquent, charming and extraordinarily well prepared, and there was instant likability that caused jurors to take him very seriously. He was able to wrap his client in his own personal credibility.feedback

Apr 07 2017

My client had a very, very good lawyer, from a very prominent firm, which he paid $10 million for, for the distinction of getting indicted.feedback

Apr 07 2017

We believe that it would be quite impossible for either Defendant to get a fair trial if tried together.feedback

Apr 02 2017

That information quite frankly is none of the government's business. Neither the government nor even the court most respectfully has the right to know precisely what their role(s) are or may be in the future. If the government has the temerity to even intimate that Messrs. Giuliani or Mukasey are engaging in any inappropriate conduct then let them come out and say it.feedback

Feb 21 2017

Martin Shkreli maintains his complete innocence. The evidence will show that he did not defraud, steal, lie, or cheat anyone out of money, and that he devoted his best efforts to bringing value to his investors. We believe that it would be quite impossible for either Defendant to get a fair trial if tried together. As for Greebel's efforts to try and distance himself from Martin's legal issues, the fact is that Greebel and his firm billed Martin almost $10 million for legal advice during the very period in question. If not giving him counsel, he should return the money!feedback

Feb 21 2017

Greebel provided legal advice and insight to Shkreli, which Shkreli followed faithfully. Because Shkreli relied closely on his experienced legal counsel and other attorneys at the firm, Shkreli has a valid 'reliance on counsel' defense.feedback

Feb 09 2017

Martin has been invited to speak at Harvard and so long as he does not discuss his pending case, it's fine with me. We hope the court will approve his travel request. Whatever else one might say about Martin, nobody doubts his brilliance. Having a young brilliant man speak to a group of brilliant young men and women is a natural fit.feedback

Feb 09 2017

Godel has nothing to do with pharmaceuticals. Other than that it would be premature to further discuss this project.feedback

Dec 15 2016

It took us several months of fighting with the Russian authorities to actually get him on a plane. In that period, he was offered full asylum by Russian authorities and he rejected it.feedback

Apr 05 2016

The new indictment adds nothing of value to the government's case that still relies on a flawed theory as to Mr. Shkreli.feedback

Feb 19 2016

While his keen 'intellect' can at times be intimidating to mere mortals, nothing else about (Shkreli) is intimidating at all.feedback

Feb 03 2016

We want to try this case in court, not the media.feedback

Feb 03 2016

We are confident that he will be fully exonerated. It is clear that Mr. Shkreli never intended to violate the law, nor did he ever intend to defraud anyone.feedback

Jun 06 2011 - IMF

In our judgement, once the evidence is reviewed, it will be clear that there was no element of forcible compulsion in this case, whatsoever.feedback

Jun 06 2011

The victim wants you to know that all of Dominique Strauss-Kahn's power, money and influence throughout the world will not keep the truth about what he did to her in that hotel room from coming out.feedback

May 22 2011 - Israel

Given what I've seen up to this point I am confident that if he receives a fair hearing that at the end of these proceedings he will be exonerated.feedback
