Defendants Being Sued For Hamilton Tickets Fraud Fire Lawyer Have 3 Weeks to Find New 1

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - The Source

SDNY COURTHOUSE, July 20 – Michael Boswell, Mark Elenowitz and two companies called TriPoint have been sued for fraud in raising funds "for purported investment in ticket reselling enterprises involving high profile events including the Broadway musical Hamilton." 

 On July 20 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Chief Magistrate Judge Gabriel W. Gorenstein held a proceeding. Inner City Press covered it.

  It emerges that the defendants are firing their lawyer. Judge Gorenstein asked them, Do you think you'll find a cheaper one?  Yes, was the answer.  

The plaintiffs, on the other hand, call it a delaying tactic.

 Judge Gorenstein said he could not make that finding, but gave the defendants three weeks to find a new lawyer or have TriPoint found in default. A corporation cannot proceed pro se, representing itself through non-lawyers.

The case is Blank et al v. TriPoint Global Equities, LLC et al., 17-cv-876 (Carter / Gorenstein)
