BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Sept 8 –   The rapper Tauheed Epps, a/k/a 2 Chainz, was heading into 30 Rockefeller Plaza to the Jimmy Fallon show when photographer Richard Capak approached, to shoot video.

  According to Capak, until he was "attacked, assaulted and battered" by the rapper's body guard, Rory Dorall Smith.

 He sued, and it was it removed to Federal court.

 On September 8 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Magistrate Judge Katharine H. Parker held a proceeding. Inner City Press covered it.

  Reference was made to a party's mother having Coronavirus, and a loss of focus on the case.

 Judge Parker set a settlement conference for November 4, which will require the presence of "the person with decision making authority to settle the matter."

The case is Capak v. Epps et al, 18-cv-4325 (Abrams / Parker)
