On May 6, 1997, the plaintiffs, a not-for-profit Corporation and Yaakov Spritzer, filed a complaint against seven named defendants consisting of 167 paragraphs extending over 50 pages and asserting eleven claims as follows:
This went on for several years until the judge dismissed the suit and had this to say in the verdict:
“To characterize the complaint as prolix, replete with hearsay and irrelevancies, would be charitable”.
The Shomrim Lawsuit- Verified Complaint- by Paul Huebner – Hundred forty four million dollars (?)
(Have in mind, the above is not even getting in to the criminal Case, that’s a different story, perhaps for another day). Some Background:
Following the incident at 749 Eastern Parkway where Shomrim members were ambushed and gang assaulted, the Tzfatim went to the police and filed false and trumped up charges against 6 members of Shomrim and had them arrested by the police.
Hours after the incident at 749 Eastern Parkway members of Shmira (1) converged on the scene in search of Tzfatim who would be willing to press the trumped up charges against the Shomrim members. Armed with notepad Yossi Stern took the names of those willing to press the charges then had the Shmira car come over and ferry the Tzfatim to the hospital and then to the precinct.
Two weeks later (2) Shomrim began receiving calls from the detective squad at the 77th precinct informing them that they are to turn themselves in for an arrest based on those charges. Tuesday morning, January 22, ט”ו שבט 6 Shomrim members were arrested.
While under arrest Police Officer Brian Duffy, who was the detective investigating the case, told Shomrim that this was a political arrest and that he would have not seen this as a case in which any arrests would have been made, but due to pressure from various sources within the community they were forced to make the arrests (3).
We have learned that Levi (Paul) Huebner, an individual that lives in the community, and claims to be a lawyer and is an affiliate with Shmira, acted as the attorney, translator and witness for the Tzfatim and was the driving force behind these false charges. When confronted he simply stated that he was hired by the Tzfatim and they each had paid him $500 (3).
A very deep running hatred reared it head in this case when members of Shmira got involved and instigated these Bochurim to go press charges against Shomrim members, the community’s volunteer patrol.
From accounts on the scene, Leib Skoblo (4) who claims to be an auxiliary police office and a coordinator of Shmira walked into 749 and after pulling out a badge he told the sergeant on scene “why don’t you arrest these guys” pointing at Shomrim members.
A coordinator in Shomrim told us “What is really sad here is that we have a group of reckless individuals who’s entire cause of existence is that of hatred and who’s one goal is to attempt and destroy Shomrim” he further added that “these tactics are not new to us or to the police department, last year they had their hand in a botched attempt to have 3 members locked up”
(1) Who were not there when this whole episode happened, they showed up after the whole thing.
(2) That is to say that for two weeks they were using all there כוחות to lock up fellow Jews.
Also to note: that night reports were made only against 4 Shomrim Members , in the course of these two weeks they added more false and trumped up charges.
(3) Who are the various sources within the community that’s putting pressure to get our people locked up? Whos giving the Mishichstim money to pay this so called “Lawyer”?
Answer: The same people that have been מוסרים and destroying this community all these years, they are: Yankel Spritzer, Yankee Herzog, Sandhaus and Chanina Sperlin, and anybody who gives money and sympathizes with these individuals, are also taking part in the מסירה!
(4) Leib Skoblo is a convicted racist.
To make note: Every Shmira “Leader” (Yanki Prager and Yossi Stern) has a criminal record (anybody can get this information).
