Courtside to Courtoom: Inside MSG’s Attorney Ban
Listen now
An ugly turf war is playing out at some of New York City’s most hallowed venues, with Madison Square Garden as the epicenter of the dispute. The storied arena’s owner, James Dolan, has barred attorneys litigating against his various business interests from entering the Garden, enforcing the policy with cutting edge facial recognition technology and inviting a flood of litigation from the aggrieved lawyers. On this week’s Pro Say, we’re joined by attorneys Benjamin Noren and Joe Polito of Davidoff Hutcher & Citron, who have found themselves in Dolan’s crosshairs, to break down the mechanics of this ban and their fight to undo it. Also this week, the Justice Department muscles up against Google with a new antitrust suit over the company’s advertising technology, and former Whole Foods employees suffer another setback in their legal fight against the company’s decision to fire them for donning Black Lives Matter facemasks on the job. Finally, we envision a dinner party at the home of legal fiction luminary John Grisham.
