Greenberg Traurig must face a $1.3 million lawsuit by a construction executive turned producer of the poorly received 2018 biopic about mobster John Gotti, a New York state appeals court ruled Tuesday.

A panel of New York’s Appellate Division, First Department concluded that a trial court judge had erred in dismissing Thomas P. Devlin’s suit against the international law firm, finding that Greenberg was responsible for looking out for Devlin’s interests, not just those of Fiore Films, the company producing the film.
