China Based Shoe Company Sues Father of Fashion Duo As Guangdong Depositions Loom

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

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Dec 29 – John Lung, an American running a shoe company in Guangdong, China, sued Jacob Samra as the father and funder of his two sons' now defunct fashion business Yosi Samra.  

 On December 29 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Lewis J. Liman held a proceeding. Inner City Press covered it.

  The Complaint alleged misrepresentations at a show and tell meeting at 515 Greenwich Street in Manhattan.

The defense says the case is a last ditch attempt to collect money that Lung's SGI International Corporation couldn't get from the sons.  

 At issue now is how depositions of the plaintiff(s) in China will be carried out. The defendant's lawyer said he had a bad experience with such a deposition: it took three days, due to interpretation problems. 

 Judge Liman told the parties to focus on the logistics of the depositions in China, asking for example if the oath can be administered by video there.

 He set a post discovery conference for October 5, and said the summary judgment motions will be due on October 18.

The case is SGI International Corp. et al v. Samra, 20-cv-8631 (Liman)
