Elias Dabaie Noted in Law360 for Successful Defense in Wrongful Death Suit

Akin Gump litigation associate Elias Dabaie is mentioned in the Law360 story “Famed Boxing Coach’s Landlord Dodges Wrongful Death Suit” for his role representing the former boxer Freddie Roach and Wild Card Boxing in a suit filed by the family of a man who died while working out at Roach’s Wild Card Boxing Gym.

The family said the death resulted from the gym’s failure to comply with a California law requiring the presence of an automatic external defibrillator. The judge disagreed, saying the law does not apply to landlords.
