Ryzhov v. Durandin et al (22-CV-20737-RKA) Posted 03/14/2023

Mr. Ryzhov alleges that, while working as a lawyer in Russia, he represented certain entities, the Sokolov family and the Automobilist, who were trying to prevent an illegal corporate takeover of the Automobilist by our Defendants, OAO Sanatorium Automobilist and Valeriy Nikolaevich Durandin. As a result of his efforts, Mr. Ryzhov says, the Defendants were prosecuted in Russia. According to Mr. Ryzhov, the Defendants—angered by that prosecution—conspired to dispossess him of certain property interests he held here and in Russia. Mr. Ryzhov has asserted seventeen counts against the Defendants—all under various state and federal laws. Mr. Ryzhov has asked for money damages to compensate him for the property interests he lost, and he wants the Court to enjoin the Defendants from any further conversion of those interests. The Defendants have not yet been served. If interested, please email
