Panama Papers Lawfirm Sues Netflix Over ‘The Laundromat’

TV: 'Panama Papers' law firm sues Netflix over film based on scandal

". Answer: " with lawyers like these, " and immediately appear actors Gary Oldman and Antonio Banderas, who play Mossack and Fonseca, respectively, laughing "sinisterly, dressed in flashy clothes".

The pair's firm, Mossack Fonseca & Co., shut down in March after a whistleblower leaked 11.5 million documents from its files four years ago, exposing the tax gambits of its roster of wealthy clients. It is scheduled to be released on Friday.

Panamanian lawyers Jürgen Mossack and Ramón Fonseca filed a defamation lawsuit and request for a temporary restraining order Wednesday in federal court in CT.

Netflix say Mossack Fonseca's lawsuit should be dismissed because it's a last minute attempt to stifle free speech and that the lawsuit both fails to show malice on the part of Netflix or demonstrate how Mossack Fonseca will face irreparable harm from the release of the film.

San Francisco, Oct 17 (SocialNews.XYZ) Just days before the slated arrival of "The Laundromat" on Netflix, the law firm at the centre of Panama Papers, portrayed in the movie have filed a defamation action against the streaming giant and are trying to prevent the film's release. US prosecutors said the schemes involved sham foundations and shell companies.

Jonah Hill no longer in talks for role in 'The Batman'
The film will begin shooting in January in the United Kingdom and is expected to arrive in theaters June 25, 2021. The Batman has been in development at Warner Bros . since 2015 when Ben Affleck signed on to the DCEU.

"This is especially true where the cat is named "Laundromat" and the charges would include money laundering".

When the Panama Papers came out back in 2016, some incredibly unscrupulous business dealings were laid bare for all to see.

Mossack and Fonseca are also suing Netflix for the use of their now-defunct law firm's real logo "approximately 8 times" without permission, which they argue "would cause most viewers a mental association that would be unsavory, damaging, and/or unwelcomed". The FBI is now investigating the law firm for the alleged crimes raised by the Panama Papers.

As you may have guessed from the movie's name and the lawsuit, The Laundromat isn't exactly going to paint Mossack Fonseca in the prettiest of lights.

And it would also interfere with their right to a fair trial in the USA, where they are under investigation by the FBI, they said in a legal memorandum filed with the district court in CT. That was one of the largest data leaks in history, and it exposed a web of offshore tax evasion by the super-rich and global leaders, including Russian President Vladimir Putin.
