New York Law Journal
In an article detailing the ruling by a federal judge to narrow a lawsuit filed by Long Island attorney Robert Del Col and his client, Ted Doukas, against Nassau County DA Kathleen Rice and officials of DataTreasury, a Texas company founded in Melville, it is noted that Scott Mollen is representing several DataTreasury officials. District Judge Margo Brodie dismissed several claims in the suit, which alleges that campaign contributions made to Rice by DataTreasury officials led her office in 2009 to charge Del Col and Doukas with extortion. "Our clients are clearly gratified that so many claims have either been dismissed or withdrawn in an action that they believe is clearly baseless."
