One of Hunter Pyle Law’s cases was recently featured in an article in USA Today. The case, LeGarie v. Nurse, is brought in the Northern District of California against Nick Nurse, the head coach of the Toronto Raptors basketball team.
In the case, Hunter Pyle Law represents Warren LeGarie, a prominent agent who represents NBA coaches and executives. Mr. LeGarie represented Mr. Nurse for many years until Mr. Nurse breached his contract with Mr. LeGarie.
Hunter Pyle, quoted in the article, gave the following statement: “Warren LeGarie has successfully represented numerous NBA head coaches and executives for more than two decades. He represented Nick Nurse for over seven years and successfully negotiated several contracts for him pursuant to the same agent agreement that is the subject of this lawsuit. Mr. LeGarie employed his considerable experience and relationships in the NBA to help advance the career of Mr. Nurse as he progressed from an assistant to the head coach of the Toronto Raptors. The lawsuit speaks for itself as to the facts and law on the matter. I have nothing more to say about the case at this time.”
The article describes the main claims in the case as follows:
“Among other things, Defendant Nurse failed to abide by the terms of the representation contract, failed to pay Plaintiffs the amounts due under the representation contract, and failed to disclose to Plaintiffs the amount of the employment contract he entered into with the Toronto Raptors for the 2020-2021 through 2023-2024 NBA seasons, thus denying Plaintiffs the opportunity to be paid for commissions wed on Defendant NURSE’s employment contract for the 2020-2021 through 2023-2024 NBA seasons.”
Hunter Pyle Law is honored to represent Mr. LeGarie in this matter.
