Dino Antolini Sued Again But ADA Defendant Thurman Died Now Filing At End of Year

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

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Dec 29 – Dino Antolini and his lawyer Stuart H. Finkelstein have sued again under the Americans with Disabilities Act, this time 33 BRE Inc and an owner named Thurman who, after the lawsuit, has died. 

   On November 4 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Jesse M. Furman held a proceeding. Inner City Press covered it. 

  Inner City Press, in the course of covering the SDNY court, has come up at least two other Antolini / Finkelstein lawsuits, before SDNY Judge Lorna G. Schofield here, and Judge Vernon S. Broderick here.

Judge Furman expressed frustration at requests to extend discovery when very little had been done.

He expressed condolence for the deceased, and cautioned the other lawyer not to describe his health condition or procedure on the record. He said he would be reasonable on scheduling requests.

Now, nearly two months later on December 29, defense lawyer Robert Silversmith has signed and filed a "Suggestion of Death Upon the Record Under Rule 25(a)(1)," stating of "the recently discovered death of Harold Thurman... to date no personal representative, executor, or administrator has been appointed."

The case is Antolini v. Thurman et al., 19-cv-9674 (Furman)
