According to court documents obtained by The Blast, DWM Dance Studios, owned by Maks and Val, is taking steps to dismiss the countersuit filed by their former employee, Gregory Hightower.
The brothers deny all allegations of wrongdoing in Hightower’s complaint. They are asking a judge to not side with Hightower and allow their lawsuit against him to move forward. Maks and Val are represented by celebrity attorney, Matthew Blit.
A judge has yet to rule.
As The Blast first reported, Maksim and Val filed suit against their former employee, Gregory Hightower, in New York Court.
The duo accused Hightower of allegedly trying to steal clients away from them. The Chmerkovskiy bros co-founded and operate DWM Dance Studios along with fellow “Dancing With the Stars” pro Tony Dovolani.
In their suit, they accused Gregory Hightower of soliciting clients away from their studio for his own personal gain. They said Hightower was “diverting business away, along with conducting dance lessons” near their flagship studio in NYC.
