In Sushi FLSA Case One Flushing Lawyer Accuses Another of Lying In SDNY

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - The Source

SDNY COURTHOUSE, June 15 – In a Fair Labor Standards Act case against New Ooki Sushi, Inc., Flushing-based lawyer Ricardo R. Morel on June 15 accused his adversary of, in a word, lying.  

The proceeding was before U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Gregory H. Woods, and Inner City Press covered it.  

Alice C. Zhang, also of Flushing and representing New Ooki Sushi, has replied that "if not for the coronavirus pandemic and On-Paulse [sic] order, Defendants may find out the instant action through the advertising mails earlier which may avoid the default." 

  But on June 15 Morel recounted the steps taken to serve process, and asked that default not be vacated, notwithstanding the Second Circuit's preference that matters be resolved on their merits. He asked for an evidentiary hearing.

The case is Tian v. New Ooki Sushi, Inc. et al., 20-cv-1950 (Woods).
