Blockchain Tech Lawsuit Triggers Triggers Mediation In SDNY As Costs Exceed Damages

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - The Source

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Aug 20 – Blockchain Technologies Corporation sued Robert Herskowitz and RVH Inc. for allegedly reneging on a $250,000 loan.

On August 20, 2020 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Magistrate Judge Sarah Netburn held a discovery conference. Inner City Press covered it.  

While Peter R. Ginsberg had been the one to ask for the conference, by the end of its Judge Netburn asked him to file a motion to withdraw as to certain defendants, in the next two weeks.  

In the docket, it is said that "Mr. Spanos is severely ill with a chronic resperatory illness. He will sit for a deposition unless it would severely compromise his condition."

 Now on October 30, Judge Netburn held another conference and Inner City Press again covered it. Judge Netburn offered herself to try to resolve this case before litigation costs exceed damages, saying not to toot my horn but I think I can be a force for good.

  The parties are agreed to a November 9 settlement conference, on a platform on which Judge Netburn said they won't see each other and may not even have to speak to each other. Modern shuttle diplomacy. Obviously that conference will be non-public. But we will continue to follow this case.

The case is Blockchain Technologies Corporation v. RVH Inc. et al., 18-cv-9352 (Nathan / Netburn)
