Well they do get rowdy after spending time at the bar.

I thought the SCOTUS already ruled that attending a Jerry Seinfeld show constitutes cruel and unusual punishment and is thus unconstitutional.

Who ARE these people?

/Thank you. Thank you. You're a great audience. Thank you.

Correctly noted that Jimmy Dolan is a trust fund idiot who was fired up from his father's company and is probably the worst owner in the NBA.

Someone needs some publicity, eh?

It's a firewall. Respect it, lawyers.

All big venues need effective pest control.

This is the height of pettiness.  Reminds me of doctors who say they won't treat lawyers because they don't understand how the malpractice insurance market works.

Probably the worst owner in the NBA?
Definitely the worst owner in the NBA.
Trump, Musk, Dolan, Bush.
All inherited wealth.
Bring back the estate tax. I've said for years that it is the fairest tax of all. Your children don't need to inherit 400 million dollars.
Dolan is so childish and petty. He almost got Charles Oakley banned for life and only relented due to intense public pressure.

It looks more like MSG ensuring that the lawyers suing MSG aren't inappropriately exploiting MSG tickets to gather evidence, tack on claims, or otherwise harm MSG further.

If you're suing my ass, I sure as hell ain't letting you in my house without an explicit court order forcing me to do so - and you certainly aren't allowed to come on over for the goddamned Christmas party.

Lawyers don't go around gathering evidence.  If they found anything, they would become witnesses in the case, and likely have to withdraw from representation.  That's why they pay investigators.

And investigators, of course, are not banned from MSG.  This is not being done for any tactical purpose.  They're just being crybabies.

Which is utter bullshiat, and I kind of feel sorry for anyone who actually falls for that line.

...which is why, in the article, the lawyer promises not to go around gathering evidence...?

"MSG's position about the ethical implications of an attorney appearing at one of their venues is completely misguided," DePaola told The Post. "There is no support for the position, no evidence that anybody is going to go up to a bartender or a hotdog vendor and start asking questions about ongoing litigation because we are there for some unrelated event."

Crybabies or not, it's still MSG's right to refuse service. Lawyers are not a protected class.

There is one lawyers wife in Florida that is really well known for ramming through malpractice lawsuits in assembly line fashion. It doesn't matter that his shotgun approach will filter bullshiat for him it costs the doctors money in being dropped and increased rates even if nothing happens because there is still a claim because you needed lawyers to fix it. Anyway, his wife got cancer and she had to leave the state to find a doctor willing to treat it where he didn't have fingers in the pie.

/asshole did it to us too
//not a doctor
///not even a professional
////turns out they had the wrong address. Still got dropped and higher rates for 2 years.

I didn't RTFA, so I didn't realize MGS actually made that silly claim, but you're right, there's nothing stopping them from excluding the lawyers.

This won't be successful. If you're suing a business or are representing clients suing a business you think they still have to accept you as a customer? What crazy drugs are these lawyers on?
