Man Running Ball Pond Capital In Apartment on Warren St Was Sued Now Docs By Sept 20

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

SDNY COURTHOUSE, August 30 – Sri Prayal Wijegoonaratna has been running Ball Pond Capital out of his home at 38 Warren Street in lower Manhattan. Both have been sued by the Brian Newberry and the Newbery Family Trust for $1,165,000 agreed to be paid as a settlement.    

     On June 21, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Ronnie Abrams held a proceeding. Inner City Press covered it. 

  Judge Abrams noted that the parties' Case Management Plan proposals are quite different. She offered the services of the assigned SDNY Magistrate Judge, and said she wished them luck in settling. Again.

On August 30, SDNY Magistrate Judge Sarah Newburn held another proceeding, and Inner City Press covered it.

Discovery disputes included plaintiff's request for bank statements from 2016 to 2016; they state that Wijegoonaratna "withdrew more than a million dollars in cash from the BPC bank account without providing any consideration in return."

Judge Netburn, giving extra time as what she called a wedding present to counsel, said that documents must be served - but not filed - by September 20. A deadline of November 19 was extended to the end of the year.

The case is Newberry et al v. Wijegoonaratna et al., 21-cv-2707 (Abrams)
