Abstract: 

On October 15, the two partners of the now-dissolved law firm Mossack Fonseca & Co. confirmed that they were being investigated by the Federal Bureau of Intelligence (FBI). Subsequently at this time, they filed a lawsuit against Netflix. The lawsuit was filed over the Panama-based lawyers’, Ramon Fonseca and Jurgen Mossack, portrayal in the film The Laundromat. The suit claims the movie includes libel and trademark infringement. The lawyers also filed a temporary restraining order to prevent the movie’s release.[1]
