11:00 AM PT 4/18/18 — According to court documents, Venit withdrew his request for sanctions on April 17. Our sources say there was a miscommunication and everything has now been produced.
The man Terry Crews is suing for sexual assault wants the “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” star’s doctor sanctioned by the court for refusing to turn over medical records as part of the ongoing lawsuit.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Adam Venit — the WME agent Crews accused of groping him at a party in 2016 — subpoenaed documents related to “any medical exams or treatment Crews claimed he received as result of Venit’s alleged conduct.”
Venit argued that if Crews was claiming his mental and physical well-being was harmed, he should have to back it up.
Crews agreed and pointed Venit to Dr. Alex Katehakis of The Center for Healthy Sex, a sex addiction treatment facility in Los Angeles.
Venit claims he filed the subpoena on February 28, 2018 and asked Dr. Katehakis to comply by March 15. But Venit claims she never turned over the docs and never responded with any objections, either.
A few days after the deadline passed, Venit says he spoke to Dr. Katehakis by phone, but she could not “confirm or deny” she even knew Crews. Venit then replied with a copy of the subpoena and explained that Terry Crews had said that Dr. Katehakis had the information Venit was seeking … but still nothing.
Venit is asking the court to compel her to turn over the information and sanction her in the amount of $2,700 (Venit’s legal fees for the matter).
A judge has yet to rule.
