Shaquille O’Neal, a famous basketball player, has been served a lawsuit outside his house in Atlanta. The lawsuit is related to a class-action case against Sam Bankman-Fried, the founder of FTX, a cryptocurrency exchange. The case has been filed by a man named Edwin Garrison, who is an FTX customer. O’Neal is one of several celebrities, including Kevin O’Leary, Tom Brady, and Steph Curry, who are facing a class-action lawsuit for promoting a “fraudulent scheme.”
Lawyers have been trying to serve O’Neal with the lawsuit for the past three months but claimed he was “hiding and driving away from our process servers.” They even tried to reach him through his social media accounts but were unsuccessful. However, they were finally able to serve him outside his house, and the video recording of the service has been preserved for the lawsuit.
O’Neal had previously said that he was just a paid spokesperson for a commercial when FTX collapsed. The lawsuit accuses FTX of running a fraudulent scheme, and the plaintiffs are seeking damages in the billions of dollars. O’Neal, who has multiple homes and a public life as a DJ, show host, and podcast host, has been trying to avoid being served, but the lawyers have finally caught up with him.
