10. I think it's the case that involves Rick Gates as I found the attorney Zia Mustafa Faruqui mentioned

Also taking on Gatesí ongoing criminal case, which hasnít yet been scheduled for sentencing, are Molly Gulland Gaston, Deborah Curtis and Zia Mustafa Faruqui, according to new attorney appearances filed in court Monday. Gaston focuses on fraud and public corruption, while Fauqui is working on several open cases in the court system, including a money laundering conspiracy case against eight Russians for transactions in Syria. Curtis notably has experience as a national security prosecutor and is involved in the Concord case.

Seems the first part is the company arguing that they are immune from enforcement under the Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act as they consider themselves an agent acting for government of redacted.

Another interesting piece...there's a part in there referring to the plaintiff as eight separate corporations that were served like an umbrella through an agent of the corporation(s) that is a U.S. Citizen. Also it's apparrent from the language of the arguments for and against the corporation's claim of immunity under FSIA that they were engaged in criminal activity. In my mind this spells money-laundering, and from all the framing, I think it involved Manafort and Ukraine, maybe Naftogaz.
