Laba Sued JBO & Orange Butterfly for $100000 to S Africa Now 4th Party Defendants to Move

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

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Oct 12 – Remi Laba has sued the South African company JBO Worldwide Supply Pty Ltd and Orange Butterfly Licensing (Mauritius) for reneging paying a finder's fee.      

   On July 23, 2021 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Alvin K. Hellerstein held a proceeding. Inner City Press covered it.   

 Judge Hellerstein asked about the third party complaints and said they shouldn't be allowed to clog up the underlying case, which he valued at $100,000. The plaintiff said $100,000 to $160,000.

A parallel lawsuit in South Africa was mentioned.

Jump cut to October 2022, when Judge Hellerstein held a proceeding which Inner City Press covered, and subsequently issued an order regulating proceedings. He ruled that "fourth party defendants shall answer or otherwise move by November 18, 2022." There is a next status conference set for January 6, 2023.

This case is Laba v. JBO Worldwide Supply Pty Ltd, 20-cv-3443 (Hellerstein)
