In legal documents Plaintiff Mirlis asked Daniel Greer questions about his employment of prominent New York Attorney Mordechai Biser many years ago, long before Mirlis even stepped foot in the city of New Haven.
According to Biser’s linked in profile, Biser went to Yale University and Yale Law School from 1976 to 1987. In 1981 Biser worked for famous New York pollster Louis Harris. Louis Harris was a top aide to Mayor John Lindsay. The goat had a big position in the Lindsay administration, before the goat lost an election and was run out of New York. Lindsay and the goat both grew up on Riverside Drive in Manhattan. Harris grew up in New Haven. Was it Harris who told the goat to settle into New Haven after the goat got kicked out of Israel in the 1970s?
There is a big gap in Biser’s linked in profile from the years of 1987 to 1989. His profile is blank for those years. What was Biser doing from 1987 to 1989? Here is what Biser’s linked in page used to say before he erased those years from his profile:
– (6 years) New Haven, Connecticut I helped found and run this non-profit organization that provided low income housing for those in need. My work included drafting applications for state housing tax credits, helping secure Community Development Block Grant Funding from City and Federal Government, advocating before city and state legislatures for programs and legislation to benefit the organization and its constituents, and insuring full compliance with all government laws and regulations.”
But there is nothing on Biser’s Linked In page that indicates what Biser did from 1987 to 1989. During these years, and up until 2002, there were numerous real estate transactions between Biser, the goat, Harold Hack and rape victim Avi Hack.
Biser transferred property to the goat back in 1986. In 2002 Biser transferred real estate to Avi Hack. In 1994 the goat’s non profit gave Biser a mortgage in the amount of $50K on property located at 777 Elm Street, which would indicate that Biser lent the goat fifty large. In 1996 Biser transferred real estate to the goat and Harold Hack.
I believe Biser was working as the principal of the goat school from 1987 to 1989. I believe Avi Hack took over this position after Biser left. Yet Biser does not indicate that he worked for the goat school on his resume. Why does Biser fail to mention that he worked for the goat at the goat school from 1987 to 1989? Biser mentions that he worked for Edgewood Elm Housing Inc. from 1989 to 1995, yet fails to mention that this non-profit is controlled by the goat.
It does not seem likely that Biser had any interaction with the goat prior to the time Biser was hired by the Goat in the 1980s. Biser grew up in Westchester. When Biser was a teenager the goat was either in Israel or in New Haven running the compound. I doubt they crossed paths.
Real estate transaction records indicate that at one time Biser was very close with Avi Hack, Harold Hack and the goat. But Biser eventually left New Haven and never returned. The last real estate transaction with Biser was in 2002. This was the year that Mirlis enrolled in the goat school. Maybe Mirlis did run into Biser in 2002.
You would think Biser would come for a visit to New Haven over the last 20 years and hang out with the goat and the Hacks. Biser has held a prominent position as general counsel at Agudath Israel of America for the last 15 years. You would think that the goat would be falling all over himself inviting Biser to speak at one of the goat’s annual fundraising dinners.
I spoke with New Haven old timers and they told me that Biser hasn’t been seen or hear from since he left Dodge almost twenty years ago. Many people who spent time in the compound left and never returned, including the goat’s own children.
Biser has spoken on behalf of Agudath Israel on child molestation. Agudath Israel has told its followers that victims should first consult with a rabbi before going to the police. Agudath has been criticized for many years for its position on child molestation. It would be interesting to know whether Biser has formed any opinion on the goat case. If Mr. Biser is reading this blog I promise to reimburse him with a box of ramen noodles for rights to an exclusive interview.
