After several unsuccessful attempts, NBA star Shaquille O’Neal was finally served in an FTX class action lawsuit on Sunday.
A Florida judge denied a motion to allow electronic service to the FTX promoter after the law firm representing affected victims accused him of avoiding service for several months.
- Adam M. Moskowitz, the attorney leading the lawsuit, revealed that O’Neal was served at his home on Sunday afternoon.
- Moskowitz stated that the entire exchange was recorded on video.
“The good news is his home video cameras recorded our service and we have made it very clear, he is not to destroy and/or erase any of these security tapes, because they must be preserved for our lawsuit.”
- O’Neal is the only celebrity among several that were endorsed by the Sam Bankman-Fried-led platform FTX.
- The class-action lawsuit was filed by a victim of the exchange’s collapse, Edwin Garrison, and is being handled by attorneys Adam Moskowitz and David Boies.
- The lawsuit named high-profile celebrities for endorsing FTX, such as Tom Brady, Steph Curry, and Larry David, who are yet to be served.
- The Moskowitz Law Firm stated in a series of tweets last week that O’Neal was “running” from them “for 3 months.”
- The team also claimed to have stood outside TNT studios in Atlanta all week to serve the NBA legend on behalf of FTX investors regarding his previous endorsement of the now-defunct platform.
- Last week, it was reported that FTX managed to recover most of its assets owed to customers and could potentially restart operations next year.
