Fearless Girl Statue Case in SDNY Has Request to Withdraw Granted and Stay Until June 8

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

SDNY COURTHOUSE, March 10 – Back in 2019 Inner City Press reported on the dispute about the Fearless Girl statue between its creator Kristen Visbal and State Street Global Advisors which commissioned it.

  In a conference held in Judge Woods 12th floor courtroom with Inner City Press alone in the gallery, Judge Woods urged the lawyers to meet to narrow difference in the week of June 10. Meanwhile he will be making a referral to an SDNY Magistrate Judge.

   The terms on which Ms. Visbal can sell to executives at other financial institutions may be among the "Delta" issues the lawyers and then Judge Woods referred to.

   "It will be a better marriage if there is a better courtship," Judge Woods said. The relationship between scultor and bank is meant to be ongoing, for better or worse. Inner City Press said it would continue to cover this case. And it has.

On March 1, 2022 Judge Woods held another conference in the case. Steve Mitby is seeking to withdraw as counsel, and said that Philippe Zimmerman can continued. The latter demurred, and Ms. Visball asked how to file. Not by email, Judge Woods said, then speaking ominously about lawyers allowing their ECF privileges to be misused. Inner City Press' question is, how is the press to file for court openness and against sealing, as in US v. Edwards?

On March 10 Judge Woods granted Seiler Mitby, PLLC's motion to withdraw and gave Visbal a stay under June 8 to search for and retain new counsel.

The case is State Street Global Advisors Trust Co v Visbal, 19-cv- 1719 (Woods)
