Is There Nothing Sacrosanct, Like a Law Degree to Prevent Corruption? Gordon Caplan and College Admissions

190874312.1

Gordon Caplan, The Legal Profession and the Words of a Lifelong Idealist

There is apparently good reason for the number of lawyer jokes that circulate the internet, parties, schools and even children’s playgrounds. One would think that to practice law you must yourself be worthy of the profession, have an unshakable set of ideals and standards and draw lines in the sand that cannot be crossed. They say we would do anything for our children. But what does that mean when a future generation depends upon our integrity?

Those who have spent a lifetime practicing law should be held to a higher standard in everything they do, whether it is trying a case, drafting a contract or sending a child off to college. We should not be cheating the system. We should not be paying off public officials. We should not be coercing or gaming a judicial system and we should not be falsifying test results.   

We most certainly should not be setting a stage whereby our children cannot distinguish right from wrong. Lines should be clearly drawn. We are supposed to be setting an example for others. Instead we make a mockery of the profession.

Ex-Willkie Co-Chair Gordon Caplan Gets Prison Term in College Admissions Case

Gordon Caplan, the former co-chairman of Willkie, Farr & Gallagher, was sentenced to one month in federal prison on Thursday for paying a college admissions consultant to rig his daughter’s ACT score.

U.S. District Judge Indira Talwani in Boston said the interests of general deterrence drove the need for Caplan to serve time behind bars. The sentence was below the eight months prosecutors asked for, but dashed Caplan’s hopes for a noncustodial sentence.

He was ordered to report to prison on Nov. 6. In addition to the prison time, Talwani ordered Caplan to pay a $50,000 fine and to serve one year of supervised release. His sentence also includes community service.

The sentence is another notch in the belt for U.S. Attorney Andrew Lelling’s office, which brought cases against some 50 defendants as part of its probe into a web of corrupt college admissions officials centered on William Rick Singer, dubbed “Operation Varsity Blues.” Many other defendants pled guilty and await sentencing.

The government, whose prosecution team included multiple Big Law alumni, said Caplan had shown “callous disregard for honesty and the rule of law.”

Caplan is at least the fourth parent in the college admissions case to be sentenced to prison time; Felicity Huffman, the actress, was sentenced to two weeks after she pled guilty to working with Singer to rig her daughter’s SAT score. Parents Devin Sloane and Stephen Semprevivo—who worked with Singer to fraudulently pass their kids off as talented athletes—each got four months.

John Vandemoer, a coach accused of accepting funds for the Stanford sailing program in exchange for a willingness to tell the school’s admissions office that phony athletes referred by Singer were prized recruits, received a sentence of no prison time.

Caplan’s lawyers at Ropes & Gray and Smith Villazor argued that Caplan’s public humiliation and his possible disbarment would be enough punishment, and said a prison term would harm his family. If anything, they argued, he should face no harsher a penalty than Huffman, who went so far as to consider making use of Singer’s illegal services for a second child.

Prosecutors sought to rebut that argument, however. Assistant U.S. Attorney Eric Rosen argued that Caplan’s status as a lawyer, the fact that he hired another attorney who was oblivious to the cheating to threaten the ACT after it withheld his daughter’s test score and the fact that he paid $75,000 for Singer’s test-rigging services—five times what Huffman did—made clear that he was the worse offender.

But Judge Talwani split with prosecutors over whether the price Caplan paid meant his crime was any worse than Huffman’s. Caplan’s plea agreement included an upward adjustment to the guidelines based on that sum, but the judge rejected that reasoning in her assessment of the guidelines—the total offense level should be five, not 11, as it was in the plea deal, she said.

Still, the judge cited the high price tag Caplan paid in other parts of her analysis. What drove her decision to impose a prison sentence, she said, was the need for general deterrence, plus the huge amount of money involved.

“This is large money, which makes it more of a serious issue,” the judge said. “It’s just different than most [crimes with a guidelines range of zero to six months in prison].”

Talwani made clear that she didn’t agree with prosecutors about Caplan’s status as a prominent lawyer figuring into his crime or punishment. “I don’t see how this offense was trading on his position as a lawyer,” she said.

As to further consequences Caplan may suffer to his already-derailed career, judge invoked “a combination of having a punishment here and the court’s recognition that you have fully accepted responsibility here and, in my view, are more likely to understand the morality and rules and law going forward than before this conviction.

“So I don’t know what will happen with the collateral consequences, but… hopefully the punishment will weigh against further consequences,” she continued.

‘The Moral Issue’

The sentence marks the end of a relatively straightforward and short criminal case. Caplan was among dozens of parents charged in March with paying corrupt consultant Singer to help their children get into good schools. Within less than a month, he announced his intent to plead guilty.

An Orthodox Jewish Nobel Laureate Advocates for Yeshiva Accountability in a Dual Education for Children.

Professor Yisrael Aumann is a Nobel Prize-winning Israeli mathematician. He is a professor at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and has held visiting positions at Princeton, Yale, Berkeley, Louvain, Stanford, Stony Brook, and NYU.

We Must Work Together So That All Yeshiva Students Get a Dual Education

In last week’s Torah reading, Moshe Rabbeinu commands us to choose life — “Uvacharta Bachaim.” From this, the Talmud Yerushalmi in Kiddushin derives that a father must teach his son a trade and thus provide him with a livelihood. In this Talmudic passage, Rabbi Yehuda puts it bluntly: “If a father doesn’t teach his son a trade, it’s as if he taught him highway robbery.”

So it should come as no surprise that, as a frum Jew, I believe that our yeshivas should provide robust secular studies alongside an uncompromised Torah education.

hen my family fled from Germany to the United States in 1938, they enrolled me in a religious elementary school in Boro Park. When it was time to choose a high school, I decided on the Rabbi Jacob Joseph Yeshiva (RJJ) on the Lower East Side of Manhattan.

After finishing university in the 1950s, I made aliyah to Jerusalem, and since then have pursued an academic career; but I’ll always remember my yeshiva experience as an exceptionally positive one that had a lasting impact on my life. For that reason, when the lawyers of Agudath Israel asked me for an affidavit describing my experience in yeshiva to urge the New York State Education Department not to intervene in the dual education provided by yeshivas like RJJ, I was glad to provide it.

As I wrote in my affidavit, “The immersive, time-consuming experience of deep Talmud study in an educational setting such as RJJ is absolutely necessary for the continuity of Orthodox Jewish life and practice. We were taught not merely a religion, but a way of life. And in that way of life, we were taught — and to this day I repeat daily — ‘Talmud Torah Kenneged Kulam’: the study of Torah is as important as all other religious observance put together.”

Shortly after news of the affidavit was reported in the Yeshiva World News website under the headline “INCREDIBLE: Nobel Prize Winner & Yeshiva Graduate To NYS Education Dept: ‘Talmud Torah Knegged Kulam!’” I got an email from a Chasidic yeshiva graduate that I found deeply upsetting. He informed me that he himself had received no secular instruction at all; and that most Chasidic yeshivas teach only a few hours a week of sub-par secular studies in elementary school and none at all in high school.

The picture that was painted for me — and later confirmed by other Chasidic graduates and parents of current students — is of young men who often graduate without even the basic skills to operate professionally. In many cases, this leads to poverty, and also to a sense of insuperable handicap.

Having left New York well over 60 years ago, all this was a revelation to me. Despite the distance, I find it impossible to ignore the genuine distress of the young men with whom I corresponded and the grave wrong being perpetrated on generations of children.

I stand behind every word in the affidavit; but knowing what I know now, I ask the public to read it with an emphasis that is perhaps a little different. Namely, that “I had wonderful experiences with BOTH secular and Jewish studies at RJJ. … The credit for my academic success belongs to Mr. Joey Gansler and to the mathematics he taught at RJJ. … If I were asked today to advise Jewish teens who have been admitted to both Stuyvesant and a yeshiva high school about which to attend, I would absolutely recommend that they attend a DUAL-curriculum yeshiva such as RJJ.”

We must continue vehemently to oppose government oversight and intrusion in yeshivas. The government has no right to dictate how we run our schools. But as my affidavit indicates, it does have a right to see to it that all children get a basic secular education that will enable them to be productive members of society. And that is also the Halacha.

Rabbi Daniel Greer Guilty on All Charges – Part II, Why Has Mainstream Press Not Covered This?

GOAT GUILTY ON ALL CHARGES

There was no victory for the Goat today. The Goat was convicted of four counts of risk of injury to a minor. The Goat faces a maximum of 80 years in State prison

Yesterday I was convinced that the Goat would walk away free today. After watching the jury deliberate this morning I became convinced that the Goat would be convicted. The jury handed Judge Alander a note asking the same question they had asked yesterday. They wanted to know the years Dr. DeRosa worked at the Yeshiva. They didn’t want to know about anything else that they had asked about yesterday. I figured that there was one juror who was hung up on Dr. DeRosa. I thought that the evidence was overwhelmingly against the Goat. I figured that the majority of jurors wanted to convict and that there was one or two holdouts. The majority had to convince the holdouts to convict. It was only a matter of time before there would be a verdict of guilty.

At about 12:30 PM the jury returned a verdict of guilty on all four charges of risk of injury to a minor. After the forewoman of the jury stated “GUILTY” four times, the Goat looked at his Ewe, shook his head and then looked away. The Ewe sat in silence. The Goat and the Ewe had prayed all morning. Their prayers were not answered. The marshals surrounded the Goat. They put him in cuffs. They took him outside the Courtroom and into a side room. Willie the Dow asked Judge Alander to poll the jury. Each individual juror was asked whether they voted to convict. Sentencing was set for November 20th. The Goat faces a maximum of 80 years in prison. The Goat did not look happy. The Dow crashed. It was Black Wednesday.

State’s Attorney Wilinsky asked Judge Alander to increase the Goat’s appearance bond now that the Goat was a convicted felon. The Dow argued that the Goat never attempted to leave the compound and has lived in New Haven for 40 years. Wilinsky asked the Dow whether the Goat had an Israeli passport. The Dow said he would find out. Judge Alander increased the Goat’s bond to $750K. Judge Alander told the Dow that he can come back in the afternoon for a bond hearing in order to discuss electronic monitoring and other conditions of the Goat’s release.

The Goat was locked up for an hour or so in a holding cell in the Courthouse and then appeared at the bond hearing in the afternoon. The Goat paid a bondsman ten percent of the $750K and was fitted for an ankle bracelet. The Goat will have electronic monitoring and be confined to his home in the compound. He will be allowed to go to a shul approved by Probation and allowed to visit his attorneys office and his doctors. The Dow asked Judge Alander if the Goat can go to Beth Israel Shul in Onset MA for Rosh Hashana and the Jewish holidays. Beth Israel was Rabbi Joseph B. Soloveitchik’s summer Shul. The Dow argued that the Goat has been spending Shabbos in Onset lately and that it is hard to get a minyan in New Haven. Judge Alander told the Dow that the Ewe can help him round up a minyan here in New Haven. Request to travel to Onset for Yom Tovim DENIED.

When States Attorney Wilensky argued for electronic monitoring the Ewe mumbled “Anti-Semite” in the courtroom. At least the Ewe didn’t call her a “SHAYGETZ.” Guys in Otisville prison called me a self hating Jew all the time, which never bothered me. If they really hated me they called me a “SHAYGETZ.” Attorney Wilensky should not feel insulted when the Ewe called her an Anti-Semite. Wilensky should pity the Ewe, the Goat will be locked up with her on home confinement with an ankle bracelet all the time. Could you imagine being locked up with the Goat 24/7?

Judge Alander indicated that the Goat was a flight risk. The States Attorney argued that Orthodox Jewish child molesters tend to flee to Israel. The Dow objected to the electronic monitoring on the Goats hooves on Saturdays on the grounds it would violate the Sabbath. Objection OVERRULED.

I tried to interview a few jurors but was unsuccessful. Two of the female jurors were in tears hugging each other as they walked down the street outside the courthouse. I followed them over to a local restaurant where they all ate lunch together. I noticed that one of the alternate jurors joined them. I went into the bar and asked if I could speak with them, but they appeared very tired and told me that it was a very difficult case and they needed some time to unwind and relax and didn’t want to talk about it. As I left I overheard one of them remark that he was impressed with the performance of the Dow. The Dow rallied and shot up 100 points, after suffering a huge crash with the guilty verdict. I also overheard the jurors mention Avi Hack’s name. I have a feeling that had Avi Hack testified the guilty verdict would have come much sooner. The attorneys were able to drag right wing black hat Haradi Rabbi Notis all the way from Lancaster PA, and poor old Dr. DeRosa from Southbury, yet the key witnesses, the missing pieces to the puzzle, the missing links, Avi Hack, Dov Greer and Ezi Greer, were mentioned throughout the trial yet were AWOL.

The Goat will be confined to his home with an ankle bracelet for at least two years while he files and then argues his appeal. If the Goat is given permission to make a minyan at the compound his recruits may wonder why he is wearing an ankle bracelet. I wonder if the Goat will take his pants off over his ankle bracelet or under his ankle bracelet. The Goat will be allowed to have minors in the compound, as the charges of sexual assault were dismissed so the Goat will not have to register as a sex offender. The Goat can rebuilt his compound and call himself “The Ankle Bracelet Rebbe.”

In closing argument the State made a compelling argument that Eli Mirlis was unable to report the molestation and abuse to Dov Greer, Ezi Greer and Avi Hack. 14 year old Eli Mirlis felt that these adults knew what was going on and would have done nothing to stop it if he reported the abuse.  This verdict is long overdue, but unfortunately the enablers who protect abusers and pedophiles never face justice.  I have reported on this case in my blog since 2016.  I do not get any personal pleasure when Mr. Greer, or anyone else for that matter, goes to jail, as I have spent 18 months in Federal prison myself and I would not wish incarceration on my worst enemy.  But Mr. Greer presents a physical danger to others and should be in jail, regardless of his age.  After speaking with numerous child sexual assault victims, who reached out to me, they express more anger towards the adults who protected and enabled pedophiles like Mr. Greer or decades, than the actual abuser himself.  I hope that this highly publicized verdict will give others who have been abused the strength to come forward.  As for other pedophiles, enablers and protectors of abusers, beware of Larry Noodles, I will hunt you down, and get you locked up just like the Goat. Make my day SHAYGETZ!

We’re slogging on, from 516 Ellsworth Ave, Noodles has finally been vindicated with the guilty verdict. Yechi Noodles! Moshiach Now!

The silence of Jewish religious and lay leaders, rabbis and Jewish news reporters, of all political persuasions, on the Goat verdict is deafening.

JEWISH LEADERS, RABBIS & PRESS SILENT ON GOAT VERDICT

It is very rare for members of the Jewish tribe to agree on anything these days. There is a large spectrum of political and religious viewpoints among American Jews, from the right wing Haradi to the far left Bernie Bro’s. Liberal Jews are just as outspoken and opinionated as Jews who support the Donald. Secular Jews do not mince words when they describe Orthodox Jews as misogynistic narrow minded bigots. Haradim have no problem referring to secular Jews as self hating Jews. You never hear such venom exchanged between civilized Christians.

The Jewish world has found common ground with the guilty Goat verdict. Jewish leaders of all stripes and denominations have all refused to publicly comment on the Goat verdict. The unified vow of silence is deafening. The Goat has managed to unite the Jewish people just before the Jewish New Year. Moshiach is supposed to arrive on a donkey, not a goat.

Not one leader from any Jewish Federation located in the entire United States has spoken about the Goat verdict. Not one pulpit Rabbi from any denomination in the entire country has spoken about the Goat verdict. Are they saving their comments for their grand Rosh Hashanah speeches that they are currently preparing to read to their followers in shuls, synagogues and Temples throughout the country on Monday? I don’t think so.

The mainstream media and the Jewish media has not reported on the Goat verdict. The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Vosizneias, Hamodia, The Forward, and the New York Post all reported on the Goat when he was first arrested, yet they now have asserted their First Amendment right to remain silent, just as the Goat did during his criminal trial. The Associated Press ran a very small blurb today.

The only logical explanation for Jewish radio silence on the Goat verdict is fundraising bucks. Fundraising for the Catholic Church dropped when pedophile priests were exposed and arrested. “It’s all about the Benjamin’s baby” as State’s Attorney Roberg argued in closing arguments to the Goat jury. Roberg tore apart the Dow’s argument that Mirlis was in criminal court because he wanted money. Roberg told the jury that Mirlis already got his civil judgment. Mirlis didn’t have to return to Connecticut and tell everyone in the world the excruciating details about how he got repeatedly raped by the Goat.

Jewish non-profits and religious organizations would not have any problem raising money if these organizations were transparent, efficient, and honest and not mired in waste, hypocrisy, insecurity, and nepotism. Providing a warm, stimulating and engaging place for Jews to pray, learn and interact would also attract and keep new members. News of the Goat would have no impact on fundraising.

The only Rabbi brave enough to make any kind of statement about the Goat, on Facebook no less, was Modern Orthodox Rabbi Shlomo Zuckier. Zuckier was the Rabbi at Yale Hillel for a year or two. I first met Zuckier after I got out of Otisville prison. He let me pray at the Yale Hillel even though he knew of my criminal record. I’ve been kicked out of many shuls because of my blog. The first shul I was kicked out of was the prison shul in the Otisville prison. The Jewish inmates got mad because I was sending my blogs to Paul Bass at the New Haven Independent. Fortunately I had two prominent inmate Rabbis doing long bids in Otisville who lobbied for me to be readmitted to the shul. In New Haven a local Rabbi said I couldn’t get an aliya because of my blog about the Goat. I wonder if this idiot would give me an aliya now. He should sponsor a kiddush for me. I probably saved his children from getting raped by the Goat.

I am still waiting for that kiddush the Goat’s son Dov Greer promised me on the first Shabbos that I got out of Otisville prison. Some people think that my anger towards the Goat stems from the kiddush that Dov failed to deliver. I went to the Goat shul on my first Shabbos out of Otisville and Dov Greer was nowhere to be seen. All I saw was Avi Hack and the Goat. Dov reneged on the kiddush. This incident reminds me of the story of Kamsa and Bar Kamsa. I was invited to a kiddush by the son of the Goat, ie., Bar Goat. When I got to the kiddush I realized that I wasn’t invited and Bar Goat was nowhere to be found. I offered to pay Papa Goat for the kiddush. Papa Goat refused. I then went to the authorities and helped the State of Connecticut get the Goat convicted on four felony charges of risk of injury to a minor. I never ratted out the Goat to the Caesar, ie., the Feds, unlike Bar Kamsa. I never blemished one of the Goat’s ducks, chickens or goats who live in his barn on West Park Ave. I did not cause the exile of the Jews. The Jews are already exiled in their cul de sacs in the American suburbs with their 55″ flat screen televisions.

Rabbi Shlomo Zuckier is the first and only American Rabbi, of any denomination, to write about the Goat verdict, on Facebook no less. If the President of the United States can make proclamations to the masses on Twitter why can’t Rabbi Zuckier speak to his followers on Facebook? These are the brave words of Rabbi Shlomo Zuckier: “Even A horrific Chilul Hashem and perversion of the Torah, now confirmed with this judgement. As a practicing rabbi in New Haven when these now-confirmed allegations came to light, and as someone who knew some of the victims, I felt the repercussions of this atrocity personally. Hoping this decision leads to some degree of Nechama for the victims; at the very least it should prevent any further wrongdoing.”

I encourage all readers, fans, followers, felons and stalkers of Larry Noodles to congratulate Rabbi Zuckier for standing up for truth and justice. Please be polite and do not stalk Rabbi Zuckier. And please do not use foul language, even if you think you mean well. And please use spell check and do not write to Rabbi Zuckier in all caps.

A man was selected, preferably a Kohen, to take the goat to the cliff in the wilderness and he was accompanied part of the way by the most eminent men of Jerusalem. Ten booths had been constructed at intervals along the road leading from Jerusalem to the steep mountain. At each one of these the man leading the goat was formally offered food and drink, which he, however, refused. When he reached the tenth booth those who accompanied him proceeded no further. When he came to the cliff he divided the scarlet thread into two parts, one of which he tied to the rock and the other to the goat’s horns, and then pushed the goat down. The cliff was so high and rugged that before the goat had traversed half the distance to the plain below, its limbs were utterly shattered. Men were stationed at intervals along the way, and as soon as the goat was thrown down the cliff, they signaled to one another by means of kerchiefs or flags, until the information reached the high priest. During the forty years that Simon the Just was High Priest, the thread actually turned white as soon as the goat was thrown over the cliff: a sign that the sins of the people were forgiven. In later times the thread did not always turn white: proof of the Jew’s moral and spiritual deterioration, that was on the increase, until forty years before the destruction of the Second Temple, when the change of color was no longer observed.

For G-d, For Country, For Yale, For Rabbi Zuckier. Yechi Noodles!

Jewish “Alleged” Pedophiles, Israel Might Be Your Land of Milk and Honey… Malka Leifer Granted House Arrest

Malka Leifer, a former Australian school principal who is wanted in Australia on suspicion of sexual

ALLEGED PEDOPHILE MALKA LEIFER SENT TO HOUSE ARREST PENDING MENTAL EVALUATION

Leifer is standing trial for extradition to Australia on 74 counts of sexual abuse against sisters Dassi Erlich, Ellie Sapper and Nicole Meyer while she was principal of an ultra-Orthodox school.

Alleged sex offender Malka Leifer will be released to house arrest on Friday, the Jerusalem District Court ruled on Wednesday.

Following a decision last month by Judge Chana Miriam Lomp – who is presiding over the case – to appoint a new panel of psychiatric experts to evaluate Leifer’s mental fitness to stand extradition trial, Leifer’s lawyers appealed for her to be released from prison to house arrest.
Judge Ram Winograd, presiding over the house-arrest petition, acquiesced to that request on Wednesday, and Leifer will be released to her house in Bnei Brak with her sister.
The prosecution has until Friday to appeal the decision.
Leifer is standing trial for extradition on 74 counts of sexual abuse in Australia against sisters Dassi Erlich, Ellie Sapper and Nicole Meyer while she was principal of an ultra-Orthodox school. She has claimed for many years to be mentally unfit for extradition.
Leifer fled Australia to Israel in 2008, but legal proceedings against her only began in 2014.
A hearing on October 6 at the Jerusalem District Court will determine which psychiatrists will be on the three-member panel to decide whether she is mentally fit for extradition. The panel will be expected to issue its opinion by December 10.
“We are bitterly disappointed that Malka Leifer has been granted bail and is being released to house arrest,” said Jewish Community Watch, whose private investigation restarted legal proceedings against Leifer in 2018. “It’s impossible to understand how Leifer, who has already proved herself to be a flight risk, contemptuous of the justice system and a risk to children, would be allowed to leave prison.”
Leifer’s defense team has made it clear that their tactic is to drag out the proceedings for as long as possible, and the court appears to be allowing them to do so.
“I am deeply shocked and astounded that someone who is well enough to [be released to] house arrest isn’t well enough to go on a plane,” said one of Leifer’s alleged victims, Nicole Meyer. “I am hurt by the State of Israel.”
