THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK V. PEOPLES RESOURCES
The defendant was the largest video dating service in the City of New York with offices situate on 57th Street. This firm represented Peoples Resources for approximately ten (10) years and in particular, insulated them from the statutory requirements for social referral services by convincing the State Attorney Generals Office that Peoples Resources was not in fact engaging in social referral which in turn permitted them to charge the market rate as opposed to the statutory rate for their services. In addition, the Department of Consumer Affairs instituted a suit attempting to determine that Peoples Resources was engaged in the sale of future services and thus subject to New York City's statute regarding same. This firm successfully concluded the matter in favor of our client. Outside of court, we represented the client as General Counsel hereto.
