NY Post Nearly 60 attorneys at a New York law firm have been banned from Rangers and Knicks games for representing clients in a lawsuit against Madison Square Garden, according to new court documents. Lawyers for Davidoff Hutcher & Citron LLP said on September 7 – two weeks after filing a lawsuit on behalf of ticket resellers against MSG – the firm received a notice from an MSG lawyer “barring all of its lawyers to enter premises owned and operated by MSG,” according to a Manhattan Supreme Court lawsuit from Thursday.

Most of the firm’s lawyers are uninvolved and know nothing about the lawsuit against MSG, but they are all unfairly barred and are “now pariahs”, according to Thursday’s filing.

MSG spokeswoman Natalie Ravitz told The Post that the company implemented a policy in June prohibiting lawyers involved in litigation against MSG from attending events until the cases are resolved. . “While we understand this is disappointing to some people, MSG has both a right and an obligation to protect itself during legal proceedings,” Ravitz said.

It feels good to find the MSG teams in our lives! The Rangers are scoring goals, the Knicks are giving fans dreams of contention in the preseason, and Little Jimmy Dolan’s henchmen are banning people from watching them play. If seeing that first robin is a sign that spring is almost here, people getting blacklisted from the Garden for bullshit is the surest sign that winter is coming.

Now I’m not going to cry too many tears for lawyers who miss games because of their work because working for a law firm is one of the few ways you can afford to attend so many games at Little Jimmy’s playground as they wish. If Dolan banned every lawyer in town and everyone working in finance and big business, Dolan would actually have to care about the fans because The Garden wouldn’t automatically sell out with all that money and lead to scenes. wilder. like that inside and outside of MSG.

Sidenote: I can’t believe it was last season, because it doesn’t look like it’s less than three years old, minimum.

However, what I hope is that these banned lawyers try to figure out how they can lawyer James Dolan out of the Knicks. I know that’s next to impossible since Dolan has his own group of lawyers sitting on the piles of money his father gave him, ready to counter-lawyer any potential lawsuit. But I feel like picking a fight against people with big brains and wallets who live on winning arguments is a lot more dangerous than starting shit with professional idiots on a junk blog.

God, I can’t wait for this ewok-playing kazoo to be out of our lives forever.
