The case of the day is Batbrothers LLC v. Paushok (N.Y. Sup. Ct. 2018). Batbrothers had a $25 million judgment against Sergey Viktorovich Paushok from a Russian court. It sought recognition and enforcement in New York and moved for summary judgment. Paushok defended on grounds of lack of standing, a supposed lack of finality of the Russian judgment, and a supposed lack of conclusiveness. The standing argument is somewhat difficult to discern, and so I don’t address it here.
