Holly Gavel Sued WOW Payments For Sex Talk Of Korang Now Default Judgment Entered

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

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Oct 14 – Holly Gavel went to work for WOW Payments LLC, "an unregistered business" at 40 Exchange Place in lower Manhattan, in January 2019. WOW director Kofi Korang, Ms. Gavel complains, immediately began sexual overtures.

He "began to insist that he was seeking a wife, a tax break, and a green card and that Plaintiff could provide a solution to his problems if she gave into his advances."  She did not. She sued.

  On September 9 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Lewis J. Liman held a proceeding. Inner City Press covered it. 

 Korang and WOW, the unregistered business, did not show up. Judge Liman directed Gavel's counsel to submit a motion for default judgment.

  On October 14, Judge Liman held another proceeding in the case, and Inner City Press again covered it. Judge Liman asked, Has counsel called in? He entered a default judgment against Korang, while here the case was otherwise being settled, with a stipulation without 30 days.

The inquest into the default will head to the Magistrate, seemingly Debra C. Freeman. The case is Gavel v. Wow Payments LLC et al., 20-cv-3475 (Liman)
