SHAQ’S LEGAL TEAM FIRES BACK, WANTS FTX LAWSUIT DISMISSED Cedric 'BIG CED' ThorntonMay 10, 2023 https://www.blackenterprise.com/shaquille-oneal-ftx-lawsuit-legal-papers-shaq-moving-car/?utm_source=Newsletter&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Newsletter_05/10/2023 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 O’Neal, he was never properly served, and because of this, the claims against the NBA Hall of Famer should be dismissed. According to Business Insider, in a recent court filing, Shaq’s attorneys said the legal paperwork was “tossed” in front of Shaq’s car as he drove away from his Georgia residence. They also claim 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 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.” In March, Moskowitz tweeted that his law firm finally got the paperwork to Shaq after he evaded them for months. He represents investors in the cryptocurrency company FTX who filed a class-action lawsuit 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 the case filed in December based on their involvement with the bankrupted cryptocurrency company FTX. Other stars, like NBA champion Stephen Curry, and NFL champion, Tom Brady, were also named in the lawsuit filed by an investor in the company, Edwin Garri. My Thoughts The following is a repeat but I find all financial questions must start with a simple truth. Most of the money in the USA comes from crimes towards others, usually legal crimes. Taking land/enslaving others/getting relatives to sign contracts/laws from elected officials were legal acts that led to all the fortunes in the usa. Yes, Black people have made little money but most black wealth in the usa, honestly enough, comes from civilian activity. Black people working for government, entertainers, athletes, employed in the private sector doing arduous is where more black money in the usa comes from. Shaq is simply part of the modern allowance of black wealthy people able to join white wealthy in such schemes. And in defense the lawsuit is against the multiracial set of entertainers not merely shaq. But for me the crypto scam is more statian of the usa than all the humanity talk and united talk and rest of the lies spurted every day. For Laughs, forgive me any abused women Rudy Giuliani 'demanded oral sex while on phone to Trump' https://www.yahoo.com/news/rudy-giuliani-accused-coercing-ex-033519722.html some excerpts:) "He often demanded oral sex while he took phone calls on speaker phone from high-profile friends and clients, including then-President Trump. "Giuliani told Ms Dunphy that he enjoyed engaging in this conduct while on the telephone because it made him 'feel like Bill Clinton'." "He made clear that satisfying his sexual demands - which came virtually anytime, anywhere - was an absolute requirement of her employment." "often demanded that she work naked, in a bikini, or in short shorts with an American flag on them that he bought for her." "took Viagra constantly” "worked under the constant threat that Giuliani might demand sex from her at any moment. "When they were apart, they would often work remotely via videoconference, and during those conferences Giuliani almost always asked her to remove her clothes on camera."
A person asked: is black america really prepared to take on crypto?
The questionner offered the pulpit to any, to say what they want, their initial question started with the black community, not black individuals. all the responses before my miniature reply in the post concern black individual actions.
What black individuals have money?
What black laborers can afford to do?
The mindset of black individuals?
The financial opportunity of black individuals?
The black community of the USA has a large quantity. tens of millions of people at least. The black community in the USA never had and has no centralized organization. So, the most raw, unhopeful, totally strategic, absent faith answer to your question is...
The black community is not prepared in anyway to do anything
Now, I like to be positive or functional. Black america is like white america like native america like latino america like asian americans. I can tell you with no doubt that in NYC, the russian/italian/white jews/white latinos/white rich/white dirt poor are not huddled together plotting and planning. I can tell you that the old chinese/new chinese/taiwanese/indians <from india>/koreans/phillipinos/asian rich/asian dirt poor are not huddled together plotting and planning. I can tell you the dominicans/puerto ricans/mexicans/colombians/latino rich/latino dirt poor are not huddled together plotting or planning. What is my point? no group in the usa is cohesive. Not one. The white community has power in their parts, that is how they have the illusion of unity. The white jew has media/ the italian plus irish have the law enforcement/ the russians do a lot of modern mob work. They each have their silos. Tentative peace with knives always ready. Now I know the black community has a penchant for individuals in it to advertise our community as the only one not huddled together, but none are. The problem is, the black communities parts are less pleasant to each other. The haitian/jamaican/trinidadian/nigerian/south african/ yes the DOSers/ < my particular tribe> /Black asians <and all of their parts from india/phillipines et cetera>/black latinos and all of their parts from dominican republic/haiti/colombia/mexico and et cetera/black jews/black rich/black poor are less congenial to each other. We tend to fight more loudly with each other when we coalesce. But in our defense we have many problems.
Now that I have deleted the lack of a cohesive community argument, which tends to arrive with these questions as being a factor.
What is the positive or functional path?
The question is, which group in black america is prepared or nearest prepared to invest in crypto currencies/dominate sectors of crypto currencies?
To that end, fiscally wealthy blacks are. But dominating a financial market as a small populace needs to have an agenda.
When the dutch made the east india company, that started new amsterdam, that became new york, they did it cause holland has no natural resources and is surrounded, at that time, by center countries of enpires or their rivals. So the dutch realized the idea of a financial trading mechanism may give them a way to compete in between giants. But, the dutch didn't realize that no matter how smart a little group is, a little group is still little on the battle field and in the end, holland was fanned away.
So, the sequent question after which group in black america is what is their plan upon success? What do they plan to do with the wealth from crypto?
Is the answer live it up? so...
