Joffrey Ballet School Wins Restraining Order Against Former Director Stealing Its Website

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

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Sept 19 – The Joffrey Ballet School sued its former director Christopher D'Addario for in essence stealing their websites. But D'Addario did not show up, and a temporary restraining order against him, to be delivered to Network Solution and Go Daddy was issued.

 On September 18 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge John G. Koeltl held a proceeding. Inner City Press covered it.  

Joffrey's lawyers emphasized that they had twice emailed the time of the hearing to D'Addario. Judge Koeltl said it was not ex parte then, and asked for argument. 

 It was argued - without opposition - that the loss of control of the websites put many jobs at risk; it was said the absent D'Addario has no case.

They quoted him replying, "Go right f*ck yourself.. happy the bankrupt the school in court." They said he is demanding $450,000.  

 The website is back up, but Joffrey's lawyers said their email is still being "played with."

Judge Koeltl added some handwritten notes to the TRO and said it would be posted on ECF.

The case is Center for American Dance, Inc. v. D'Addario, et al., 20-cv-7687 (Koeltl).
