DJ Envy is in jeopardy of being arrested if he does not turn over documents in connection to his former business partner Cesar Pina.
Judge Threatens to Arrest DJ Envy
On Wednesday (Dec. 20), U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Rosemary Gambardella in Newark, N.J. issued an order in a bankruptcy case against Cesar Pina’s company Whairhouse LLC, which filed bankruptcy four months ago. The judge ordered DJ Envy to comply with turning over documents requested by the court, according to documents obtained by legal affairs reporter Meghann Cuniff. Envy has until Jan. 8, 2024 to produce the documents.
If the documents have not been produced at that time, a hearing will be held, “to address appropriate sanctions against Cesar Pina, Jennifer Iturralde Pina and Raashaun Casey for contempt of this Court’s order, including, but not limited to an order for arrest to bring the parties to the United States Bankruptcy Court,” the court documents read.
XXL has reached out to DJ Envy’s attorney for comment.
