      ​@Arctic Angel I mean, that's what being responsible is for, if you accidentally committed a crime, saying "Oh I didn't know" isn't an excuse that will work in court as He was part of the problem that increased the number of FTX victims by helping to promote it.
      If he had done any research at all, he wouldn've known that FTX or any crypto exchanges is as shady as it gets.

    I’m not a lawyer but I would guess Shaq was a little more involved than just being paid to promote to company. If they gave him a share of the company, let’s say 1%, that’s different than just promoting it. If you own a share of a fraudulent company, and you promote a fraudulent company, that makes you guilty of fraud. Secondly he has a lot of money, which makes him a prime target for lawyers looking to recoup losses for clients, who lost money from something shaq promoted.

      First off their assets were always separated!

The celebrities had no clue what was going on any one of them would never risk their assets or reputation doing anything that shady too many people that handle them would never let them do it, if they were in on the scam.
      They did not do anything wrong by being paid to promote XTF, just like if Pepsi went to them they do not know Pepsi’s business they are not apart of Pepsi’s business plan. It’s amazing how stupid people are that just say shit they have no idea what they are talking about!

      If he refused I'm sure the server drop served him. Which means that he responded verbally to "Hey Shaq!" Or something of the like and even if the man refused, you drop the documents at his feet and let him know he has been served and has 20 days to respond to the courts. That's called a drop serve. It counts as good service.

      You have no right to be places as a customer, when you are not wanted.
      Carefully read your tickets. It is clearly stated.

      Then it turns out, the soldiers actually weren't there to help. Shaq couldn't have known that.

    I love the fact that he was kicked out as if he was actually there to watch the game. Fact is, if you have legal business to be somewhere, you can be there.
    For instance, you can be trespass from city hall but if you have legal business there you're still allowed to go there so long as you do your business and leave, nothing more.
    If you are serving someone then you have legal business to be where they are. That doesn't mean you can sneak into their house in the middle of the night but that means if they are out in public somewhere then you can go there and serve them.
    That doesn't change the fact that they can kick that lawyer out but he doesn't have to leave until he's done serving Shaq. He wasn't there to watch the game, he gets to write that ticket off as a business expense and if he wasn't already going to leave after serving papers then he was more likely only stay because "Well, I bought the ticket"
