CAIR Settles with Victims in Virginia Fraud Case

This is news you aren’t going to see on cable TV or in the mainstream media.  After a decade of legal wrangling, the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) was finally facing a jury trial (to begin in September) in a case that alleged they had hired a phony lawyer to help clients with their immigration status among other legal matters.
A prospect of a public trial likely pushed the Muslim ‘rights’ organization to quietly settle the case in favor of the victims and their attorneys.

CAIR Settles with Fraud Victims After Two Adverse Court Decisions


Washington, D.C. (June 4, 2019) — The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) has settled a case originally filed 11 years ago in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia. The lawsuit against CAIR was brought by the American Freedom Law Center (AFLC) on behalf of five victims of a massive fraud perpetrated by a CAIR lawyer, Morris Days.

David Y
AFLC Senior Counsel David Yerushalmi is a favorite target of the Southern Poverty Law Center which works closely with CAIR.

CAIR’s decision to finally settle the case came only after two very adverse court decisions. The first decision by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia reversed an earlier dismissal of the lawsuit brought by AFLC Co-Founders and Senior Counsel David Yerushalmi and Robert J. Muise. The Court of Appeals’ decision, the second appeal in this long-standing case that had included allegations of criminal racketeering by CAIR, mandated that the federal district court permit the case to go to a jury trial, set for September 2019.
The second court decision was by the trial court which refused to dismiss the consumer fraud statute count, which meant that AFLC’s clients would receive attorney’s fees irrespective of the amount the jury awarded as long as the jury found CAIR liable. Given the aggressively fought litigation over the past decade, CAIR was looking at a possible judgment approaching one million dollars just for attorney’s fees.
It is thus no surprise that at a mediation conducted in the U.S. District Court in D.C. by U.S. Magistrate Judge G. Michael Harvey in late May, CAIR agreed to a settlement. As is often the case, the terms and conditions of the settlement agreement are confidential, but the plaintiffs’ lead lawyer, David Yerushalmi, remarked:

“Our clients are extremely happy with the settlement and, in fact, they are so happy, they have authorized me to declare publicly that they have no problem disclosing all of the terms and conditions of the settlement agreement if CAIR agrees. It is unlikely CAIR would agree, of course, because it is unlikely CAIR wants the public to learn the terms of the settlement.”

The lawsuit began after CAIR hired for its Virginia offices a fake lawyer, Morris Days, who defrauded dozens if not hundreds of CAIR clients. Once the fraud began to unravel, CAIR engaged in a massive cover-up, closing down the Virginia offices, firing the lawyer, and claiming to the CAIR victims that Days was not actually a CAIR lawyer. As alleged, CAIR knew of this fraud and purposefully conspired with Days to keep the CAIR clients from discovering that their legal matters were being mishandled or not handled at all.

This is the kind of news you need to get around to your social networks (assuming you haven’t been given the boot from facebook and twitter yet!) because otherwise this good news favoring the little guy will be lost.

  2. This is the kind of news people need. However, it is the kind of news those in Congress need to see and I doubt any of them have awareness of these types of situations. The Democrats are totally useless and, in fact, supportive of anti-American activity while the GOP is, in general, content with Trump carrying the ball by himself.

  3. You’re correct, I had not heard of this settlement. Good work and keep it up.

  4. Good Morning All,
    This is a follow-up to the answer relating to the question the other day about where I got the information referencing the MN CAIR ‘360 lawsuits filed in 2017 alone’ AND, his assertion that ‘MN CAIR would be filing even more legal actions in 2018’ – an on camera declaration, per the Jaylani Hussein power point presentation. It was Hussein himself who provided that information. Now, he is on ‘the Gov. Walz transition team’??
    They win by intimidation, and count on others not fighting back. This is especially true in Minnesota. Please read the attached MPD police report(s) that the MPD did not want to give me at first. You will see why. 3 days in a row, these ‘terrorists’ did this in the Linden Hills/Lake Calhoun area of Minneapolis in June 2016, right after the idiots in the Minnesota Legislature gave the Somali ‘community’ the first – no strings attached – 2 Million Taxpayer Dollar installment ‘payment for protection’ & ‘votes’..
    That is why I suggested legal action should happen relating to that horrid MN Muslim Brotherhood-MN CAIR/IsaiahMN ‘Propaganda Mill’ hit piece published and publicly released in 2018, which included many notable Minnesotans; John Hinderacker, MN Governor candidate – Jeff Johnson, John Gilmore, and many others.. I believe that this ‘report’, while blocking out the eyes of those being slandered, is an invitation to violence.
    Expensive or not, someone needs to fight back in Minnesota, and in a court room.
    Perhaps you taking the time to contact the AFLC, and Senior Counsel, David Yerushalmi (see below), might prove to be a productive approach. They might just decide to lend a hand. Minnesota is after all, ‘ground zero’ for this garbage for the entire U.S.
    Someone needs to take the fight to them at some point in Minnesota. Otherwise, this sort of false reporting, slander, and libel, will only continue and escalate.. That is the Jaylani Hussein, MN CAIR-Muslim Brotherhood playbook in escalating motion.
    Others, in other US States are fighting back successfully. (see the attached)
    Minnesota, and ALL Minnesotans, had better wise up, and right quick I believe.
    ..It’s like the old ‘Purolator Oil Filter commercial’.. ‘Pay me now (oil change NOW and regularly), or pay me later’ (when due to denial & procrastination, the engine blows up because the oil was not changed).
    It’s up to you and the people you know of course…because not many in Minnesota care very much about what I ‘think’ or know to be true…YET.. Far too many in Minnesota ‘feel’ that they can outrun this problem (congressman, Tom Emmer & and some others cc’d here), or, that it will fix itself magically.. A quick look at The UK today, Western Europe, parts of Australia, and New Zealand, would prove otherwise.. It is a mess over there..
    Closer to home, the former 40 plus year ‘leftist’ MN State Rep. Phyllis Kahn, is living proof that, you (we) cannot outrun this problem by ignoring it. Even the criminally flawed, and IQ challenged Ilhan Omar can take it all from you, with the assistance of unchecked voter fraud, and a monolithic voting block of imported, poorly vetted and screened, and questionably intact ‘new Americans’..
    Please let me know that you have received this transmission if you would..
    Best Regards,
    PS… Most of the attachments and information referenced, are from last year and this year alone.. My message? All of this occurring in Minnesota is escalating with incredible speed and frequency now.. Additionally, the attachments and information referenced is a drop in the catastrophe bucket compared to all the incidents, which did occur..
    Just ask the Valley Fair (‘Valley Scare’) attendees from last year’s 22nd – September, 100 Somali – so called ‘youths’ – gang riot, involving 6 police departments, MN State Troopers, a police helicopter, required to evacuate 15,000 people over the course of an hour and a half. ..My daughter – son-in-law, and 2 grandchildren were caught up in that disgraceful madness. If I had been there, my old Louisville Slugger would have been used to defend my family..
    ..Minnesota IMPORTED this insanity, and we must all suffer as a result?..
