Jimmy Fallon Seeks Removal From Ryder Ripps Case

Jimmy Fallon Seeks Removal From Ryder Ripps Case
In this post

On Monday, Jimmy Fallon's lawyers submitted a move to dismiss a subpoena issued by artist Ryder Ripps, according to CoinDesk.

โ— Why It Matters

If Fallon's petition is granted, he will have no further legal involvement in Yuga Labs, Inc. v. Ripps et al.

๐Ÿ”™ Back It Up

  • Fallon bought a Bored Ape through MoonPay in November 2021, and it has its own Twitter account @BoredAndBreezy.
  • Fallon is a co-defendant in a separate California class-action lawsuit against Yuga Labs and other celebrity promoters, which asserts that Bored Ape Yacht Club NFTs were "misleadingly promoted."

The Deets

  • Fallon is a non-party in Yuga's case against Ripps, but he has been required to give over papers relating to "Yuga's cooperation with other parties aimed at popularizing BAYC NFTs."
  • Ripps and his business partner Cahen have been charged with trademark infringement, false advertising, and unfair competition for manufacturing a fake NFT collection that resembles Yuga's BAYC NFTs.
  • Fallon's lawyer, Dana Seshens, contended that the subpoena creates an excessive burden on Fallon because the same documents were already requested from Yuga Labs and agent Guy Oseary.
  • Seshens also claimed the subpoena was invalid because it was signed by Ripps and Cahen's lawyer, who is not licensed to practice law in New York, Vermont, or Connecticut.
