A malpractice lawsuit by a bankrupt outdoor furniture distributor against DLA Piper has been removed to federal court.

Joseph DelGreco & Co. Inc. sued DLA on July 6 in Manhattan Supreme Court claiming the firm’s negligence financially damaged the company and pushed it into bankruptcy. DelGreco on Friday removed the $17 million lawsuit to the Southern District of New York citing its ongoing bankruptcy proceedings and the “early stages” of the litigation. DelGreco is also requesting that the suit be referred to the Southern District Bankruptcy Court.
