Michael Einbinder & Mackenzie Dimitri successfully moved to compel their adversary to produce tax returns, in a shareholders’ dispute over four related entities, three of which operate franchises in the New York City area. The court ordered Plaintiff in that case to produce the tax returns, or to supply an affidavit stating the documents were not in Plaintiff’s position and provide Defendants with IRS Form 4506 so that Defendants could attempt to procure the tax returns directly from the IRS.

Michael Einbinder and Mackenzie Dimitri successfully defeated a preliminary injunction motion, seeking dispositive relief against their clients, the owners of three quick service restaurant franchises and a related entity. E&D attorneys argued the motion sought relief not sought in the underlying action, and was otherwise legally deficient. Moreover, the facts of the case, even at the preliminary injunction stage, favored E&D’s clients. The court agreed with E&D, holding, critically, that, in addition to being legally insufficient, the opposition could not meet its burden of showing it was likely to succeed on the merits of any of its claims. The court’s opinion adopted E&D’s clients’ statement of the facts and all legal theories.
