  • Court proceedings were postponed Wednesday for the four men accused of conspiring to steal business from Fiberdyne Labs, Inc. in Frankfort.
    The Herkimer County Court proceeding was adjourned after attorney Norman Deep withdrew himself from representing one of the defendants, Daniel Caiola.
    The move occurred after the special prosecutor, Donald Gerace, argued Deep had a conflict of interest by also representing Caiola against a civil lawsuit brought by Fiberdyne Labs.
    Also on Wednesday, Judge John Brennan reserved his decision to reduce the $5,000 bail for another defendant, Michael Caiola, at the request of his attorney, Michael Arcuri, who is a former U.S. Congressman.
    Daniel Caiola is due back in court with a new attorney on Jan. 30, while a trial has been scheduled to begin May 6.
    The Caiolas, along with Matthew Paoni and Ronald Scalise, all face a number of charges, including second-degree grand larceny, fourth-degree conspiracy and first-degree scheme to defraud.
    Paoni and both Caiolas are former Fiberdyne employees accused of diverting thousands of dollars in business to a separate company owned by Scalise.
