Default Goldin Auctions asks court to keep Kobe out of auction

By the time this is done this could make an interesting property law case study

Goldin Asks Court to Keep Kobe Out of Auction
May 5, 2013 By Editor

Goldin Auctions has asked a U.S. District Court for a declaratory judgment in the case of disputed ownership of Kobe Bryant memorabilia. The New Jersey auction company filed court papers on Friday after receiving a cease and desist letter from Bryant’s attorney over the impending sale of items from his life as one of basketball’s biggest stars. The auction company is asking a federal judge to keep Kobe "from interfering with the auction".

The court filing also indicates there are hundreds of other items relating to her son’s life and career in Pamela Bryant’s possession that haven’t been consigned yet—but could be.

Founder and owner Ken Goldin had announced the auction last week, a large consignment of potentially valuable uniforms from Bryant’s high school career as well as awards and championship rings. According to court papers, Pamela Bryant, Kobe’s mother, had contacted Goldin on December 27 and was presented with a $450,000 advance on January 3. She used the money to purchase a home.

On Friday, Philly.com reported that Kobe Bryant's attorney, Mark Campbell, had sent the company a letter telling them the items didn’t belong to Pamela Bryant and asked them to put a halt to the sale, which was scheduled to conclude next month.

Goldin’s claim says Bryant “had no interest” in the Lower Merion High jerseys and memorabilia and that both the Lakers’ star and his wife had told Pamela Bryant several years ago that they didn't want them back. Pamela Bryant says she’s had the items for over 15 years and they've been sitting in a New Jersey storage unit for more than five years, while she paid $1,500 per month for fees and insurance.

“The evidence will show that even if he didn’t give them to her, he at the very least, abandoned them,” Goldin’s attorneys state in the court filing.

Goldin claims if the judge doesn’t rule that the auction process can continue, his business will suffer “irreparable harm” and that stopping the auction could have a negative effect on auctioneers’ attempts to sell goods from similar situations in the future (see below).

Goldin’s lawyers believe Bryant doesn’t have much interest in the items but simply doesn’t want them sold.



The court papers indicate Pamela Bryant has 900 other items in her possession relating to her famous son’s life and career that are worth $1.5 million. Those, too, could be headed for the auction block if Goldin succeeds in turning back Kobe’s efforts.

But there's no actual PROOF, EVIDENCE that Kobe isn't interested in the items or that he properly GAVE her those items. I hope that woman lose the lawsuit and Kobe get his shit back.

I claim to own them? Especially after I leave them at her house and she stores them for 15 years?

He'd probably think him and the other Kobe trolls are gay for him too but they don't seem worried about that

If she bought them for you then they are yours when you turn 18. Legally a parent owns their child's belongings. The fact that she had them for 15 years is going to be the problem.

isnt anyone on the side of this poor woman?

she gave birth. does anyone know how hard that is!

she would have had to of lived in her same old house the rest of her life!

wouldn't giving birth to someone entitle you to a new house every now and then???

common people. she probably eats chicken bones out of kfc dumpsters

her poor bastard of a son probably doesnt even give her money anymore. that ungreatful child. a mothers love is worth atleast a bit of money every so often. i bet kobes just sitting on hundreds of millions he doesn't even need.

she gave birth to him god damnit!


birth!!!!!!!!!!

Wouldn't it help them if Kobe was in the auction bidding up the price?

Also, what kind of mother sells her sons trophies for cash? Unless she is about to be homeless or something like that, its disgusting.

Parents chose to have children, that is why there is a legal responsibility to care for them. Having children is a selfish and self interested action, contrary to popular belief.
