Viacom CEO Philippe Dauman To Be Subpoened; Sumner Redstone Reps Seek Dismissal In Health Care Lawsuit


Philippe-Dauman - Sumner Redstone


The legal battle over Sumner Redstone has taken two new directions — one expected, and one much less so. In a move promised last month, Attorneys for Sumner Redstone today filed a motion to dismiss Manuela Herzer’s health care and capacity suit. [Read it here.] At the same time, attorneys for Herzer have announced that they are going to file a subpoena to compel Viacom CEO Philippe Dauman, to sit for a deposition in New York City.

“Where is Philippe Dauman?”, said attorney Pierce O’Donnell of Greenberg Glusker, in a statement. “First Viacom Chairman and majority owner Sumner Redstone disappeared behind black curtains in his house. And now his direct report, Viacom CEO Philippe Dauman, is dodging our request to take his deposition.” Sources tell Deadline that the subpoena should be filed in the next day or so.
