• Mark Cuban is set to be deposed in February over his promotions of defunct crypto lender Voyager Digital.
• Two Dallas Mavericks employees, Ryan Mackey and Kyle Tapply, and three Florida-based plaintiffs will also be deposed by February 23rd.
• U.S. Magistrate Judge Lisette M. Reid denied Cuban’s request to split his deposition into two parts.
Billionaire Mark Cuban is set to appear in a Dallas court next month in connection to a class-action lawsuit filed by investors of the now defunct crypto lender Voyager Digital. The Dallas Mavericks owner will be deposed on February 2 as part of the case, with the court denying his request to split the deposition into two parts.
In addition to Cuban, two Dallas Mavericks employees will also be deposed by February 23rd. Ryan Mackey and Kyle Tapply are both set to answer questions under oath as part of the trial. The discovery evidence related to them must be handed over to the plaintiffs by the end of January.
Furthermore, three Florida-based plaintiffs will also be deposed by the end of the month. Pierce Robertson will be deposed this week, while Rachel Gold and Sanford Gold will be deposed on either January 23rd or 24th. A non-party, Eric Rares, will also be deposed by the same date. All documents requested by the plaintiffs must be produced by that time as well.
Cuban’s legal team have spoken out against the deposition, with Cuban’s attorney issuing a statement saying that it “has gone beyond the scope of any alleged conduct that could be attributed to Mr. Cuban.” Nevertheless, the court has decided that the deposition will go forward as planned.
The case has gained considerable attention in recent weeks, as the potential for further legal action looms. It remains to be seen how the depositions will impact the outcome of the case and what the implications will be for Cuban and the other parties involved.
