News: C&J Lawsuit Over Skateboarding's Bid to be Added to 2020 Tokyo Olympics Garnering Much Attention
// Aug 1, 2016
A recent lawsuit filed by C&J attorneys Karra J. Porter, Phillip E. Lowry, and Tyler V. Snow, in conjunction with a California law firm, on behalf of the World Skateboarding Federation ("WSF") is creating a host of national/international media coverage on the eve of a decision of whether to add skateboarding to the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. The suit, filed in California state court, alleges that the WSF has "been sidelined by the International Skateboarding Federation ("ISF") and International Olympic Committee ("IOC"), despite investing money and resources into preparations" for the 2020 bid. The suit also alleges that "the ISF [does] not meet current IOC doping standards," as well as alleging "an 'improper relationship' between [Gary] Ream [president of the ISF] and Christophe Dubi, the IOC's Executive Director of the Olympic Games."
