"The Bar is hereby reminded that this Court and the Unified Court System as a whole, rely on counsel to act as gate-keepers to prevent meritless claims from frittering away this State's ability to meet its more pressing needs," he said.
Todd Soloway, a partner at Pryor Cashman who represents the landlord, said, "Toys 'R' Us was seeking to rewrite the lease and to recover tens of millions of dollars of voluntarily paid back taxes, and the court properly recognized that the claims were without merit and never should have brought in the first place."
Toys "R" Us is represented by Jonathan Jemison, of counsel at Sills Cummis. A spokeswoman for the firm declined to comment on the decision.
