The suit accuses Gordon & Rees and four of its lawyers, including partner Roger Mansukhani, of mishandling the case and of conspiring to have Netflix, a one-time co-defendant in the suit, dismissed from the litigation once the firm realized it also represented Netflix.

The firm’s handling of the case and Netflix’s subsequent dismissal denied Hodges an opportunity to hold Netflix accountable for damages, according to the suit. It also removed substantial leverage Hodges could have used to reach a settlement by scuttling a temporary restraining order that would have prevented Netflix from releasing last year’s “Chris Tucker Live” special.
