Kobe's estate is waiting for the upcoming fight with Articulates Global, Inc., a subsidiary of the Articulating Corporation. According to The Blast, Articulating Global Inc. has not submitted the proper paperwork, but is still seeking a thirty day grace period before presenting their legal case against Kobe Inc., to file the appropriate paperwork. It appears as if Articulating Global is seeking to intimidate Kobe's attorney, in order to force him or her into giving up and allowing them to take their case to court against the Kobe Estate.
The legal process that Articulating Global Inc. is attempting to take against Kobe and the estate of his mother continues to drag on. The lawsuit has been going on for several months. The attorney is trying to convince the court that he has a valid claim against Kobe due to a number of personal injuries sustained during an altercation at a local bar. The attorneys' claim is based upon an alleged bar fight between Articulating Global's president and former clients.
The lawsuit against Kobe is one of the most complex lawsuits in California and there appears to be some tension between Articulating Global's president, Tom Johnson, and the plaintiff's attorney, John Oakes, due to Articulating Global's refusal to provide Mr. Oakes with the requisite documentation they require. In order to get to the bottom of the legal situation, and determine if the case against Kobe is valid or if the plaintiff has a valid case, it is necessary for Articulating Global to provide all of the documentation they need.
Even though they have filed legal documents with the court to support their claims, the litigation against Kobe remains ongoing. It appears that Articulating Global Inc. is simply hoping to intimidate the plaintiff into giving up so that they can take their case to court and file their lawsuit against Kobe's estate. This seems to be an unfortunate tactic to use in such a delicate case.
It is understandable that there is tension between the owner and the president of Articulating Global, Inc., but if the case was weak, it would have already been resolved by now. Unfortunately, the case against Kobe remains in the process. This case could take months, or even years to resolve. It would not make much sense to have such an important case being litigated with a weak claim.
Unfortunately, the situation continues to drag on, and the battle between Kobe and Articulating Global Inc. looks to continue for quite some time. We can only hope that the case against Kobe is resolved quickly, and that the issues between Articulating Global and Mr. Johnson are finally put to rest once and for all.
