DJ Envy Ordered To Hand Over Documents To Bankruptcy Judge Or Risk Arrest

According to a new filing, DJ Envy has to turn over documents to a bankruptcy judge by a certain date or risk arrest.

DJ Envy isn’t getting off easy in the fraud case involving his former real estate partner, Ceaser Pina. According to a new filing, the radio personality has to turn over documents by a certain date or risk arrest.

According to legal journalist Meghann Cuniff, on Wednesday, Dec. 20, a judge subpoenaed DJ Envy, real name Raashaun Casey, in a bankruptcy involving accused fraudster Cesar Humberto Pina. Now Envy has until Jan. 8 to produce all documents requested by a court-appointed trustee overseeing Pina’s company, Whairhouse LLC, that creditors forced into bankruptcy four months ago.

If The Breakfast Club host doesn’t produce the documents on time, he faces arrest and New Jersey bankruptcy court for a mandatory deposition, along with other possible sanctions. U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Rosemary Gambardella filed the order in Newark, N.J., to grant a motion after Envy missed his Nov. 28 deadline to a Nov. 9 subpoena requesting communications and documents related to Whairhouse, as well as another company behind an apartment complex Pina owns.

Envy, along with Pina and his wife, Jennifer Iturralde Pina, are all included in Judge Gambardella’s new order. If the trio doesn’t comply, the judge will most likely hold a hearing “to address appropriate sanctions against Cesar Pina, Jennifer Iturralde Pina, and Raashaun Casey for contempt of this Court’s order, including, but not limited to an order for an arrest to bring the parties to the United States Bankruptcy Court.”

Pina was arrested on Oct. 18 and is currently out on bail awaiting trial over an alleged real estate scheme that defrauded investors out of millions of dollars. Prior to Pina’s arrest and downfall, he and Envy appeared to be thick as thieves, promoting their real estate investment seminars and encouraging investors to join them in turning a profit through real estate deals throughout New Jersey.

“We also have bank statements which show that the two had multiple joint bank accounts earning at least $330k through 2021 from their joint seminars alone,” a plaintiff’s attorney, Alexander Schachtel told Legal Affairs and Trials.

“We anticipate that when we get complete bank records via discovery, there will be much more evidence in that department.”

The radio personality hasn’t been criminally charged and has distanced himself from Pina, claiming that he also is a victim. However, Envy was recently hit with a new federal lawsuit from two men who say the DJ’s involvement and alleged $100 million real estate portfolio with Pina were “instrumental” in their decision to invest in Pina’s companies.
