An attorney representing Colinford Mattis, the attorney suspended from his job as an associate at Pryor Cashman after he was arrested for allegedly throwing a Molotov cocktail during protests for racial justice in Brooklyn in May 2020, on Thursday asked for a two-week delay in the case, citing ongoing plea negotiations.

“Granting the requested extension of time (to October 1, 2021), will allow the parties to possibly continue and hopefully complete plea discussions,” Mattis’ attorney Sabrina Shroff wrote in the letter to U.S. District Judge Brian Cogan of the Eastern District of New York.
