First World Problems……NYC lawyer banned from MSG over suit had to go to Miami to see NY Knicks

A Big Apple lawyer banned from Madison Square Garden sporting events because of a case against the stadium told an appellate court Tuesday that he had to go all the way to Miami to see his beloved New York Knicks.

Larry Hutcher – a partner at the taboo law firm Davidoff Hutcher & Citron – lamented to the five judges during oral arguments, “I have had New York Knicks season tickets for 47 years, and I sued once, and I had to go to Miami to see them.”

In September, MSG — led by CEO James Dolan –notified Hutcher’s firm that all of its nearly 60 lawyers could not attend the famous sports venue while its lawyers represented a client in a case against the Garden.

Hutcher and the company sued a month later, with the partner claiming he’d already paid $18,000 for his season tickets for the Knicks’ 2022 to 2023 season.

His firm won a partial victory when a Manhattan Supreme Court judge ruled its lawyers could attend all MSG venues for non-sports-related events. But that didn’t help Hutcher when it came to his Knicks.
