Hans Niemann filed a lawsuit in the United States District Court (Eastern District of Missouri, Eastern Division). Plaintiff Hans Moke Niemann, represented by his attorneys Oved & Oved LLP and local Missouri counsel The Gartner Law Firm, is seeking a total of 400 million USD in damages from “Sven Magnus Øen Carlsen aka Magnus Carlsen, Play Magnus as Play Magnus Group, Chess.com LLC, Daniel Rensch aka Danny Rensch, and Hikaru Nakamura”.
Ronnie Lee White, a judge assigned for the “Niemann v. Carlsen” case described Niemann’s Complaint as procedurally defective and asked for the Complaint to be amended: “Niemann’s Complaint is procedurally defective because it does not contain sufficient allegations of jurisdictional facts to establish the existence of diversity jurisdiction. (…) Neimann shall file an amended Complaint that alleges facts establishing the citizenship of all relevant parties to this action“. Hans Niemann must file an amended complaint by the 23rd of November 2022.
