Bronx Conservatory of Music Sued Bronx School of Music Which Won Now Seeking Fees

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

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Feb 10 – The Bronx Conservatory of Music has sued The Bronx School For Music and Philip Kwoka for copyright violation. 

 In a complaint filed on February 26 and dug up that day in the docket by Inner City Press at the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York, Bronx Conservatory of Music says it hred Kwoka as its Executive Director in October 2015. 

 He left in the summer of 2020 with proprietary information, according to the complaint.

This included lists of people and donors who he then contacted to set up a new School. The demand is for return of the information, disgorgement and injunction.

In January 2024, the defendant's motion for summary judgment was granted.

And on February 9, the defendant wrote in seeking to reopen the case on the issue of attorney's fees, saying "this matter is a textbook example of bad faith litigation."

The case is The Bronx Conservatory of Music, Inc. v. Philip Kwoka and The Bronx School for Music, Inc., 21-cv-1732 (Torres / Moses)
