Austin and Perry: Multiple Lawsuits and no Iphone info yet

Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission has filed a motion in Palm Beach County Circuit Court in an effort to be removed from the lawsuit related to the families of missing Tequesta teens Austin Stephanos and Perry Cohen.

The motion is in response to the original lawsuit filed on behalf of Pamela Cohen and Nick Korniloff, mother and step-father of Perry Cohen.

Perry’s parents filed the lawsuit in an effort to obtain any information or findings from an analysis done on the recently recovered iPhone.

Apple was unable to power up the phone.

Attorneys representing Blu Stephanos have filed a subpoena against Florida-based Six Maritime.

Michael Pike, co-counsel for Blu Stephanos, says it is their belief that the parents of Perry Cohen used money raised in a Go Fund Me page to hire Six Maritime to conduct private searches and investigations in the days after Austin and Perry were reported missing. In the complaint, Stephanos says the Cohens have refused to provide information and reports pertaining to Six Maritime’s efforts.

In response to a lawsuit filed by the family of Perry Cohen regarding the analysis of the phone, both families agree with a judge to have Apple first try to retrieve information. Since Apple says they can not retrieve anything, it will be up to the families to mutually decide where the phone goes next.

The phone will remain in Apple’s possession until both families can agree on what the next step might be.

It is expected the families will make a decision within the next week.
