DJ Envy has pledged to cooperate and testify against Cesar Pina in the ongoing alleged real estate fraud case, but court documents obtained by HipHopDX reveal that his name continues to be listed as a defendant.

Philip Guarino, the attorney for all defendants except two, filed a motion on Friday (January 26) seeking dismissal for all defendants, excluding The Breakfast Club co-host (real name Raashaun Casey) and one other party. Guarino argues that the parties he represents were not shown to have committed any potential crimes.

The memorandum of law states, “Plaintiff’s claim for securities fraud should be dismissed as against all defendants. Plaintiffs fail to allege what defendants, if any, were parties to the contracts that were allegedly breached.”

Earlier this month, Envy expressed his readiness to clear his name by testifying against Pina if required.

“We are aware that on December 20, 2023, the Court issued an Order compelling the production of documents demanded in those subpoenas,” Envy’s lawyer, Daniel Marchese, wrote. “At this time, I am happy to report that on Friday, January 5, 2024, we forwarded our responses and document production to counsel for the Trustee in these aforementioned cases.”

Marchese continued, “Given the professional back-and-forth between counsel and I since then, it would appear that indeed the responses and the production were acknowledged and received by the Trustee. With this writing, I therefore confirm my client’s compliance with Your Honor’s Order. As I offered to Trustee’s counsel, I will likewise offer to the Court that should sworn testimony (in any form) be needed to affirm my client’s responses and production, he would readily oblige.”

Cesar Pina, also known as FlippingNJ on social media, was arrested in October for wire fraud related to his real estate dealings with DJ Envy. Although Envy has not been charged, he has been named in several lawsuits alongside Pina, asserting that he, too, is a “victim” of Pina’s alleged real estate scam. Citing an incident in August, Envy claims to have lost $500,000 on a project with Pina and his wife, Jennifer, aimed at renovating a former school into an apartment building.
