 Law Firm Which Sued Wrong Defendant For Website Under ADA Is Reminded of Rule 11

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

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Sept 8 – The Hackensack, New Jersey based law firm of Stein Saks, PLLC sued Waittcorp Investments, LLC about the lack of accessibility to blind people of a website, 

  But Waittcorp showed them that it no longer invested in, or had any connection to, the firm Waitt Brands, which sold its interest in the website three years ago. Then Waittcorp asked for a conference, prior to mediation. 

 On September 9, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Gregory H. Woods held a proceeding. Inner City Press covered it. 

  Judge Woods asked the plaintiff's lawyer how he wished to proceed.

The answer was to amend the complaint adding an additional party, then after that to move to drop Waittcorp.  

Judge Woods reminded that Rule 11 applies, to naming Waittcorp again in an amended complaint.

The plaintiff's lawyer asked for him but Judge Woods reminded that it was a simple issue, raised by letter into the docket a week before.

  The plaintiff's lawyer began to say that he saw that Judge Woods did not favor - then got cut off. Judge Woods emphasized he was not telling the lawyer how to proceed, only reminding him that Rule 11 applied. 

 The lawyer said he will file to dismiss the complaint later in the case.

The case is Williams v. Waittcorp Investments, LLC, 20-cv-4395 (Woods).
