In this fascinating exclusive interview, renowned attorney Avi Schick breaks down last week’s Appellate court hearing, which is an effort by the state to strike down the Supreme court ruling which strongly favored yeshivas.

LISTEN TO THE INTERVIEW:

He discusses the ‘disingenuous’ claims made state lawyers, who say that the state is not trying to close down or de-fund yeshivas. He points out that the state was essentially doing ‘contortion’ to avoid the notion that they may close yeshivas, because they fear its a toxic death blow to their case.

He also discusses some of the eye-opening questions asked to lawyers by the Appellate Judges themselves.

I strongly suspect that the “tough equivalency restrictions” are not really tough, but just seem that way, because the Yeshivahs are not prepared to meet those standards, and do not even want to meet those standards.

Are you able to take them to court challenging their ability to judge anything not only yeshivos in the future since they came up with such non sensical arguments?
