Sharbat Sued Iovance Biotherapeutics With Lie to FINRA Cited, Now Rule 11 Motion Looms

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

SDNY COURTHOUSE, April 15 – Solomon Sharbat sued Iovance Biotherapeutics for "willful failure and refusal to pay fees."

           On October 19, 2021 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Edgardo Ramos held a proceeding. Inner City Press covered it.   

  Iovance argued that incoming substitute plaintiff's counsel should not be allowed, as he might be a witness.

They wrote, "Plaintiff Sharbat has testified under oath that Mr. Schwartz instructed him to lie in a FINRA enforcement proceeding and physically assaulted him and threatened his life.

  On November 16, Judge Ramos held another proceeding. Inner City Press again covered it. There were arguments that Sharbat was not required to make sales, but only connections, under his contract.

  On January 5, 2022 Judge Ramos held another conference in the case, with the defense now complaining about Sharbat's new lawyer and even saying that the previous lawyer had given the defense a declaration that they were withdrawing due to their client's failure to follow advice.

  On April 15 Judge Ramos held another proceeding, and Inner City Press again covered it. The plaintiff had brought in a new participant - in order to get around the statute of limitations, the defendant said, adding it wants to move for sanctions under Rule 11. Judge Ramos gave the green light and said all else in the case will await that. Even the pro hac vice application has to be refiled.

The case is  Sharbat et al v. Iovance Biotherapeutics, Inc. et al., 20-cv-1391 (Ramos)
