CAIR legal news courtesy David Yerushalmi, P.C.:

April 21, 2010Major Victory for the First Amendment in case of Miami Bus Ads:

  • “It is ironic,” Mr. Yerushalmi noted, “that the media allows CAIR to claim the mantle of a civil rights organization when it embraces censorship by the government all in the service of the ‘anti-blasphemy’ platform of the Organization of Islamic Countries (OIC), which calls for international legislation providing for criminal penalties against anyone who ‘insults Islam and its prophet Mohammed.’ Free speech is apparently not one of the freedoms in CAIR’s version of the U.S. Constitution—at least not for critics of Islam.”

January 13, 2010Muslim Group CAIR Sued Yet Again by Former Clients for  Fraud & Breach of Fiduciary Duties:

  • Five former clients of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) have filed two separate lawsuits in federal court alleging criminal fraud and breach of fiduciary duty against CAIR.
  • Lopez et al. v. CAIR (PDF)

December 17, 2008David Yerushalmi discusses the CAIR racketeering lawsuit with Front Page Magazine:

  • “What many people don’t realize is that CAIR operates and presents itself as a public interest law firm, much like the ACLU.  As a PILF, it must comply with the codes of professional responsibility applicable to lawyers in the jurisdictions in which it operates and keep sacred the fiduciary duty it owes its clients.  As the complaint sets out in careful detail, CAIR trampled on its clients and disregarded its professional obligations with a callous and calculating malice.”

November 24, 2008Law Offices of David Yerushalmi represent four former clients of CAIR in racketeering-fraud litigation:

  • Four former clients of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) have retained the Law Offices of David Yerushalmi to represent them in a case where CAIR, acting as a national public interest law firm, engaged in a massive criminal fraud and racketeering.  The lawsuit was filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, where CAIR is headquartered.
