Flushing Law Firm Flubs Depositions In SDNY As Sushi Sushi Holdings Swims Free

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

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Dec 25 – In March 2019 the law firm of Hang and Associates PLLC based in Flushing, Queens sued Sushi Sushi Holdings on behalf of Ricardo Cajero Torres, Mario Bautista and others.

 Then they did... very little. At least, they did not request or conduct depositions of defendants Igor Grinberg and Angie "Doe."

 On December 23 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Paul A. Engelmayer held a proceeding. Inner City Press covered it. 

 Judge Engelmayer asked the Hang & Associates lawyer why he had not done deposition before discovery closed in January 2020. He replied about the pandemic but Judge Engelmayer cut it, to say don't try to use the pandemic that way. 

 After the defense lawyer tried to capitalize on this new development, Judge Engelmayer said he was ordering the partners involved at Hang & Associate to submitted sworn statements about their conduct, calling it well below the standards in this District. 

  The phrase malpractice was used, as the case was referred back to Magistrate Judge Robert W. Lehrburger. It would seem Igor, Angie and Sushi Sushi have the leverage now.

The case is Cajero Torres et al v. Sushi Sushi Holdings Inc., 19-cv-2532 (Engelmayer)
