Shaq Wants FTX Lawsuit Dismissed Insisting Legal Papers Were ‘Tossed’ at Car and Left ‘On the Road Where They Landed’

After successfully evading attorneys trying to serve him papers in a lawsuit against FTX celebrity endorsers, Shaquille O’Neal was finally served the legal documents. But, not so fast! According to lawyers representing Shaq, he was never properly served, and based on that, the claims against the NBA Hall of Famer should be dismissed.

According to Business Insider, in a recent court filing, Shaq‘s attorneys said that the legal paperwork was “tossed” in front of Shaq’s car as he drove out of the Georgia residence where he resides at. They also claim that the documents were left “on the road where they landed.”

“Mr. O’Neal has not evaded service by failing to be at the residences where plaintiffs belatedly attempted service or by driving past strangers who approached his car.”

This latest action by the TNT commentator has placed Adam Moskowitz, managing partner at The Moskowitz Law Firm, in a state of disbelief.

In a written statement to the media outlet he says, “It is really disappointing and surreal. The video will show Mr. O’Neal finally being served, after many months of hiding, as he attempts to possibly injure the process server. We expected better from an officer of the law. Mr. O’Neal and his lawyers need to stop running and finally deal with the serious allegations.”

Last month, in a sense of relief, Moskowitz had tweeted that his law firm was finally able to get the paperwork to Shaq after he evaded them for months. He is representing investors in the cryptocurrency company FTX who filed a class-action lawsuit filed against the retired basketball player and other celebrities who endorsed the firm.

Earlier this year, The New York Post reported that Shaq was successfully avoiding being served the legal documents from the lawsuit. O’Neal is among several celebrities named in a lawsuit that had been filed in December based on their involvement with the bankrupted cryptocurrency company, FTX. Other celebrities, like NBA champion, Stephen Curry, and NFL champion, Tom Brady, were also named in the lawsuit.

The company, which, last year was previously the second-largest cryptocurrency exchange behind Binance filed for bankruptcy in November.

The lawsuit against the celebrities who endorsed FTX was filed by an investor in the company, Edwin Garri.
