Nathan Lewin To Lead Rubashkin Legal Defense Team

Thursday December 10, 2009 8:10 PM - 6 Comments

nat-lewinThe Rubashkin family has retained the services of noted attorney Nathan Lewin to lead the appeals of Reb Sholom Mordechai Rubashkin, has learned. The arrangement had been made earlier but had been kept under wraps until now. The family is working in close cooperation with a legal committee of attorneys including Professor Aaron Twerski, R’ Yerachmiel Simmins, Irving Seidman, and Jeff Schwartz.

Mr. Lewin ranks among the top appellate attorneys in the United States. He has represented congressmen and white-collar criminal cases, and is the only lawyer who represented an Attorney General in a criminal investigation while the Attorney General was in office.

Mr. Lewin has argued in every federal appellate circuit in the country. He has presented 27 cases in the U.S. Supreme Court, and is also known for taking on Jewish causes in the Supreme Court.

The original legal team of Guy Cook and Montgomery Brown will continue to represent Reb Sholom Mordechai. Lawyers have also been retained to represent Agriprocessors and Reb Avrohom Aron Rubashkin facing a separate trial in the Iowa State Case. The legal team will appeal both Sholom Mordechai’s incarceration pending sentence, and the credibility of the charges and the trial.

Please continue to daven for Reb Shalom Mordechai ben Rivkah.

Significant funds must be raised for the legal defense.Anyone who can help out and can lend support should take a moment to send a donation to the Pidyon Shvuyim Fund. The help of Yidden across the globe is severely needed.

Mr Nat Lewin wrote a splendid article a few weeks ago in the Mishpacha magazine.
He wholeheartedly beieves that there was a travesty of justice in this case.
He also believes, and wrote about it, that the influential community groups did not do their share in saving Mr Rubashkin.
May he have much Hazlocho.
