Mechanic Who Wanted Tools Back Now Has Lawyer Facing Sanctions In SDNY

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

SDNY COURTHOUSE,  Dec 1 – Arturo Yeremis wants his car mechanic tools back. But his former employer, through counsel, say they own the tool box.  

   On November 18, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Gregory H. Woods held a proceeding. Inner City Press covered it, as it did a follow up on December 1.

On November 18 Yeremis' lawyer Leonard Zack, who indicated he had taken the case pro bono, repeatedly asked why his client can't just go and see if his tools are still there, and get back to work. 

  Defense Counsel, including Morgan Lewis, listened but did not budget. In fact, it was said that since the tool box is not Yeremis' perhaps the tools aren't either.

  Judge Woods said the parties could talk about this. But the defendants did not want to, not then and not after.

Things grew worse for Zack on December 1. After a lengthy proceeding that Inner City Press covered, and which included the staying of discovery, Judge Woods said he would issue an order to show cause for Zack to show why he had filed a motion to compel.

 Zack in response appeared not to have understood. He was told to get the transcript. Sanctions would not come as a surprise. But where are the tools?

The case is Yeremis v. Amerit Fleet Solutions et al., 20-cv-4723 (Woods)
