The U.S. 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals upheld the jailing of reputed Gambino crime family boss John Gotti and the revocation of his $1- million bail. Judge Eugene Nickerson, in U.S. District Court in Brooklyn, on May 13 ordered Gotti jailed until the Aug. 18 start of his racketeering trial in order to protect potential witnesses. Gotti surrendered May 19 after the appeals court refused a stay pending its decision. John Gleason, an assistant U.S. attorney in Brooklyn, said there is "no question" that Gotti threatened Romual Piecyk, a Queens man who had charged that Gotti and another man assaulted and robbed him.
