Bronx Car Crash Case In SDNY Seeks Delay For New Lawyer But Called Not Rocket Science

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

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Sept 9 –   Solomon Appiah was in his car in front of 1180 Webster Avenue in The Bronx on March 22, 2018 when his car was hit by a truck with New Jersey plates, owned by World Import of Livingston Avenue, LLC. Appiah sued. 

 He filed suit in state court, in The Bronx. But the NJ-based defendant removed it to Federal court. On September 9 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Magistrate Judge James L. Cott held a proceeding. Inner City Press covered it.  

 One of the lawyer said that he would not long remain as counsel of record. Judge Cott pointed out that this could result in a new lawyer disagreeing with the schedule to be set that day.

He also said that 90 days to amend the complaint in this case was too long. "This is not rocket science," he said.  

 Only last week, Judge Cott was handling criminal case after criminal case in the Magistrates Court. But the (federal / diversity) law covers car crashes, too.

This case is Appiah v. Espinal et al., 20-cv-4575 (Cott)
