The holders of choice box seats to tonight’s fourth game of the World Series at Shea Stadium are due in Manhattan Supreme Court this morning to plead their case to hold on to the tickets. On Tuesday, Justice Herman Cahn signed a temporary restraining order barring Mell Trimming Co. Inc. from transferring, selling or using the four box and two mezzanine seats for tonight’s and Thursday night’s games in the so-called Subway Series until a hearing on whether New York-based Traub, Bonacquist & Fox is entitled to any of the tickets. The judge, however, did not act Tuesday to bar Mell Trimming from using the tickets for Tuesday night’s game. The 10-lawyer firm had an oral agreement for several years to split the cost of Mets season tickets with Trimming, a clothing company, said Fredrick J. Levy, a firm associate. This year, according to Levy, Traub Bonacquist paid $6,600, or the face value of its half of the season tickets. That agreement held up until the Mets played in the National League Championship Series with the St. Louis Cardinals. For those games, Mell Trimming offered half the tickets to the firm at two-and-a-half times their face value, and Traub Bonacquist eventually paid double the face value for them, said Levy. But the attorney for Mell Trimming, Stephen C. Pascal, said the law firm was entitled only to those tickets that Trimming decided to make available. Traub Bonacquist name partner Michael Fox, who is to appear as a witness today, said Tuesday that although the company had never been a client of the firm, the principals of the company and the firm knew each other socially. Justice Cahn ordered the parties to appear at 9:30 a.m. today to argue over the allocation of the remaining tickets, leaving enough time, he said, for both parties to pursue appeals. Peter G. Lavery also appeared for Traub Bonacquist, which concentrates on bankruptcy, creditors’ rights, commercial litigation and corporate law.
