6. By way of clarification: the Judge has NOT yet responded to the letter in question.

Thanks to the inability or unwillingness of Raw Story's writers to coherently describe things without unnecessarily adding confusing hyperbole, it appears that the OP may inadvertently create the impression that Judge Engoron has responded to the letter sent by Trump's attorneys demanding a chance to propose a counter-judgment. He has not. The letter referenced in the portion of the OP that quotes from the Raw Story article is a letter that Judge Engoron sent back on February 8 responding to Trump's lawyers objection to the Judge asking for input about reports that Weisselberg had committed perjury. And, FWIW, the "completely out of bounds" line in that letter was directed specifically in reference to Trump's lawyers attempting to bring Michael Cohen's credibility into the discussion.

I really wish Raw Story was off-limits here.
