DJ Envy Still Listed In Real Estate Fraud Case Despite Dismissal

DJ Envy has promised to cooperate in testifying against Cesar Pina in his ongoing alleged real estate fraud case, but he’s still found his name listed as a defendant.

According to court documents obtained by HipHopDX, Philip Guarino — the attorney for all but two of the defendants — filed a motion on Friday (January 26) for dismissal against all the defendants, except for The Breakfast Club co-host (real name Raashaun Casey) and one other defendant.

Guarino claims that the parties he represents were never revealed to have committed any potential crimes.

“Plaintiff’s claim for securities fraud should be dismissed as against all defendants,” read the memorandum of law, in part. “Plaintiffs fail to allege what defendants, if any, were parties to the contracts that were allegedly breached.”

Earlier this month, Envy made clear that he was ready to clear his name by testifying against Pina if called upon to do so.

“We are aware that on December 20, 2023, the Court issued an Order compelling the production of documents demanded in those subpoenas,” Envy’s lawyer, Daniel Marchese, wrote. “At this time, I am happy to report that on Friday, January 5, 2024, we forwarded our responses and document production to counsel for the Trustee in these aforementioned cases.”

Marchese continued: “Given the professional back-and-forth between counsel and I since then, it would appear that indeed the responses and the production were acknowledged and received by the Trustee.

“With this writing, I therefore confirm my client’s compliance with Your Honor’s Order. As I offered to Trustee’s counsel, I will likewise offer to the Court that should sworn testimony (in any form) be needed to affirm my client’s responses and production, he would readily oblige.”
