TV Signal Piracy Cases in Florida
Posted on October 13, 2015 by Matthew Paré
Florida is a state that has many TV signal piracy cases. The attorney that files a great majority of these lawsuits is Lewis J. Levey of the firm Levey Lieberman LLP in Miami, Florida. He works for and in connection with the national counsel for J & J Sports Productions, Inc., Thomas Riley, regarding pay-per-view boxing matches. Lewis Levey also often represents Joe Hand Promotions, Inc. regarding the unauthorized exhibition of UFC fights. To say that attorney Lewis Levey is experienced in these matters would be an understatement as he has filed and litigated hundreds of similar cases over many years.
Fortunately, attorney Matthew Pare stands ready to defend you in a TV signal piracy case in Florida. He has experience and a strong track record of defending such cases, specifically going up against both attorney Thomas Riley and attorney Lewis Levey. Mr. Pare has the experience and knowledge necessary to effectively defend you as well as proven results in TV piracy lawsuits in Florida.
Typically Lewis Levey files the lawsuit in a TV piracy matter once the attempt at pre-litigation negotiation with the office of Thomas P. Riley has not resulted in a settlement. Because the Law Office of Thomas P. Riley often demands an extremely large amount in settlement many of these claims do end up getting litigated in courts throughout Florida. The lawsuits in Florida are usually filed in the state court system in the county courts but pursuant to 28 U.S.C. section 1441 and 28 U.S.C. section 1446 the case can be removed to the U.S. District Court, which is what attorney Matthew Pare will do to defend the case in that venue. The notice of removal must be filed within 30 days of the defendant receiving the initial pleading in the lawsuit. Removing the case to the federal court system is the first step in the litigation strategy to defend a TV signal piracy case in Florida that attorney Matthew Pare often takes in these cases.
