Frere-Jones Is Suing Hoefler for Half

Zachary Seward and David Yanofsky, Quartz:

Type designer Tobias Frere-Jones claims he has been cheated out of his half of the company by his business partner, Jonathan Hoefler. In a blistering lawsuit filed today in New York City, Frere-Jones says he was duped into transferring ownership of several fonts, including the world-famous Whitney, to Hoefler & Frere-Jones (HFJ) on the understanding that he would own 50% of the company.

What I’m feeling now must be similar to what normal people feel when their favourite celeb couple breaks up.
