Schedule of Pending Clergy Abuse Cases in Jewish communities in the US

By Jewish Whistleblower
The Awareness Center's Daily Newsletter - January 24, 2006

1) Cantor Howard Nevison
Criminal trial and decision and possibly an appeal (due to a gag order on all sides it is unclear if the trial has started as scheduled for November, 2005). More information to come shortly.

2) Rabbi Gabriel Ohayon
Possible civil trial, there was a motion to dismiss by the Boca Raton Community Kollel (Rabbi Kenneth Brander was the person served on behalf of them), the plaintiff was given time to amend her claim which she did, they also unsuccessfully filed a motion to dismiss. The Community Kollel Inc. subsequently filed a corrected proposal for settlement on December 20, 2005. There was also a Motion filed on January 4, 2006 by the Kollel for an enlargment of time. The motion was heard on January 11, 2006. More to come.

3) Rabbi Mordecai Tendler
Jan.30, 2006 motion to dismiss the civil complaint. Obviously, much more to come.

4) Rabbi David Lipman
Feb. 8, 2006 criminal trial scheduled. Likely to be some child pornography charges which will delay the trial. There may be some criminal charges in another state announced as well.

5) Cantor Robert Shapiro
Oct. 17, 2006 house arrest ends, probation begins.

6) Rabbi Baruch Lanner
Parole hearing November 1, 2006 (or shortly prior to that date, as it is his potential early release date).

7) Rabbi Jerrold Martin Levy
Prison release scheduled for January 06, 2007.

8) Rabbi David Kaye
Maryland Attorney General’s Office decision regarding Rabbi David Kaye. Will only be announced if there are criminal charges. Likely to be a further Dateline NBC follow up due to likely charges against others in the documentary, at least in VA.

9) Cantor Michael Segelstein
Originally arraigned on one count each of attempted sexual assault, battery with intent to commit sexual assault and open and gross lewdness. He pled guilty as part of a plea agreement to open or gross lewdness, received one year suspended sentence with conditions and court ordered into counseling and was discharged from probation on December 2, 2005. He still faces a civil trial. Last I checked pre-trial was scheduled for April 24, 2006 at 09:30 AM and trial was set for May 1, 2006 at 09:30 AM.

Clerk in Room 130 for delivery to the judge to
decide whether she wants to hold a hearing.
