Man Contracted To Push Rooibos Tea in Saudi Sues For Forgery in SDNY Improperly Served

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

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Sept 12 – Remi Laba, a resident of Westchester County in New York, made a deal with a South African company which sells Rooibos tea to push its Coco Safar concept in Saudi Arabia.

  Then, he says, his signature was forged.   On September 11 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Alvin K. Hellerstein held a proceeding. Inner City Press covered it.

   Judge Hellerstein asked, repeatedly, how forgery would be proved. Laba's lawyer had written that his "client's signature mysteriously came to appear on the document at the center of this case." 

  Judge Hellerstein asked how much the case is worth. $100,000 was the answer. 

  Judge Hellerstein insisted the proper service be effectuated by October 9 and set another status conference for February 19.

The case is Laba v. JBO Worldwide Supply Pty Ltd, 20-cv-3443 (Hellerstein)
