Bronx Based HKS Builders Underpaid Workers and Left Lawyers Unpaid Now Unrepresented

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

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Sept 15 – Construction workers sued Bronx-based HKS Builders & Consultants Inc. for being underpaid. Then HKS stopped paying its lawyers.  

On September 15 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Katherine Polk Failla held a withdrawal of counsel proceeding. Inner City Press covered it. 

   HKS' lawyers said the company hadn't paid for anything since January 3; it was possible the owner is sick.

 Judge Failla expressed concern that HKS could now default without knowing it, and so asked that the company and owner's addressed be sent to her Chambers, and that the transcript be ordered and mailed and put on the docket. 

 A corporation cannot proceed pro se.

This case is Samaniego et al v. HKS Builders & Consultants Inc. et al., 19-cv-10283 (Failla)
