Law Firm Says It Can Represent Itself in SDNY While Defendant Says It Hates Such Cases

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

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Dec 29 – A law firm wants to represent itself in suing to get $173,712.39 in legal fees. But can any entity, including a law firm, represent itself? 

   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 firm of Davidoff, Hutcher & Citron LLP of 605 Third Avenue says it can represent itself, that it has a case to that effect. Judge Liman asked for it to be briefed, in a letter. 

 "Are you working this week?" he was asked. The answer seemed obvious. The letter was supposedly be submitted on December 30.

  The defense lawyer, on the other hand, said "I hate these kind of cases."

Judge Liman set a trial date of August 16, noting he does not expect the case to go to trial. He was told, I hope your court is holding trials by April. The hope was shared.

This case is Davidoff Hutcher & Citron LLP v. DiPietro et al., 20-cv-8752 (Liman)
