This week the newspaper said that Fred Smith, Robert Rothman and Dwight Shore would like to sell their shares or 40% of the club for $ 900 million. They want to sell their shares to investors in California, but Snyder opposes.
“I firmly believe that the plaintiffs’ proposal and the information reported in the media is another attempt to extort money from me,” Snyder said. This is an attempt to prevent me from winning my case in this business dispute. ”
All three partners targeted by Big Boss would have pressured him to sell his shares in August. However, the daily reported that tensions between the two parties have been lingering for a long time. The media collected and disseminated the testimonies of 25 women who were part of the organization.
