Project Veritas' O'Keefe SDNY Bid To Send His Case Against Twitter Back to State Court Pends

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

SDNY COURTHOUSE, June 16 –    James O'Keefe III of Project Veritas filed a New York State lawsuit against Twitter, for after banning his account saying it was based on him operating fake accounts.

O'Keefe says the claim is false and has caused him damage.   Twitter through counsel at Gibson Dunn filed a notice of removal to Federal court.       

      On June 16, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Magistrate Judge Barbara C. Moses scheduled a pre-motion conference, putting outside her 20th floor courtroom door a sign requiring hand-sanitizing for COVID-19 purposes.  Inner City Press went to cover it.    

Counsel for O'Keefe from the Dhillon Law Group in Montclair, NJ noted that their state complaint did not specify damages, and therefore removal to Federal court is ineffective, since the case does not meet the $75,000 jurisdictional requirement.

  Judge Moses has so far, by the afternoon of June 16 entered a barebones Minute Entry into the docket. But referral back to state court, for lack of subject matter jurisdiction, is on the table.

 Inner City Press will continue to follow the case(s), O'Keefe III v. Twitter, Inc., 21-cv-4240 (Woods / Moses) and O'Keefe III v. Twitter, Inc., Filed in NYS Supreme Court, Westchester County on April 19, 2021, Index No. 54926/2021
