Plaintiff was a semi-pro basketball player who claimed he could no longer play due to injuries suffered in a car accident.The plaintiff testified at a deposition that the photos, which were posted after the accident, depicted him playing basketball before the accident. The court noted that the defendant was entitled to verify the plaintiff's claims. Vasquez-Santos v Mathew, 2019 N Y Slip Op 00541
