GLLLP obtains complete dismissal of lawsuit against Creative Talent Manager Camilla Lowther

On May 16, 2018, New York Supreme Court Justice Saliann Scarpulla granted GLLLP’s motion to dismiss a lawsuit brought against GLLLP client Camilla Lowther, founder of CLM, one of the world’s leading creative talent management agencies.  The plaintiff, The Lions Model Management, sought to hold Ms. Lowther liable for her daughter’s decision, guided by independent counsel, to terminate her relationship with Lions and move to DNA Model Management.  Who is Ms. Lowther’s daughter?  British super model Adwoa Aboah, 2017’s Model of the Year and British GQ’s 2017 Woman of the Year.  Lions’ theory was that Ms. Lowther somehow undercut the relationship between Ms. Aboah and Lions.  Judge Scarpulla was not persuaded.  She accepted GLLLP’s position that, at the end of the day, the only thing Ms. Lowther could be accused of doing was giving her daughter career advice.  That, Justice Scarpulla ruled, is not the basis for a lawsuit.  (If it were, there would be a lot of moms and dads finding themselves being dragged into court.)  Because Plaintiff did not sufficiently allege the elements for tortious interference with contract, the case was dismissed as against Ms. Lowther.  The case is The Lions Model Management, LLC v. DNA Model Management, LLC, N.Y. Co. Index No. 656028/2017.
