Shaquille O’Neal Served Again in FTX Lawsuit
NBA Star Shaquille O’Neil has been served for a second time in the class-action lawsuit against the Bahamas based bankrupt crypto exchange FTX. The law firm representing thousands of FTX customers accused O’Neil of evading attempts by process servers to deliver the summons.
Attempts to Avoid Service
According to The Moskowitz Law Firm’s Adam Mostkowitz, Shaquille O’Neal has repeatedly evaded attempts by process servers to deliver summons to him. This includes staying locked up at his residence, speeding away from process servers and denying them entry to his premises. The process servers managed to toss the legal documents into his moving vehicle last month, however, O’Neil’s lawyers attempted to get the case dismissed on the grounds that he was improperly served.
Serving Summons During Match
The second summons for the NBA legend came a month after process servers for a law firm representing thousands of FTX customers served him outside his Atlanta home after several failed attempts. According to a report by The Wall Street Journal, process servers for The Moskowitz Law Firm managed to deliver the summons to Shaquille O’Neal during Game 4 of the NBA’s Eastern Conference Finals at FTX Arena (formerly known as). After getting served, he had the process server thrown out of the stadium despite having purchased a ticket for the match.
Alleged Involvement With Crypto Exchange
Shaquille O’Neil was one of many celebrities being sued for endorsing and promoting Sam Bankman-Fried’s crypto exchange. He has maintained that he was never a believer in crypto and had no involvement with it whatsoever.
Getting To Merits Of The Case
Adam Mostkowitz stated that they had delivered another summons just so that such excuses do not hold up court proceedings in future and they can get directly into merits of this case without any delays or hindrances along their way.
