Some months ago Plaintiff Mirlis filed a list of statements that the Greer goat was requested to either admit or deny. These statements are called Requests for Admissions. If you don’t respond within thirty days the statements are deemed admitted by the Court.
The Goat spent several months biting his goat nails rather than answer the questions. Mirlis proceeded with the case as if the goat had admitted the truth of the statements. The statements asked the goat to admit or deny that he had sexual relationships with Mirlis, Avi Hack and a prominent lawyer from Agudath Israel, ie. Mordy.
Avi Hack stated in his deposition that he was raped by the Goat as a child and then had a sexual relationship with the Goat as an adult. Mirlis alleged in his lawsuit that he was raped by the Goat as a child. Mirlis grew up and realized that the Goat was a depraved animal and refused the Goat’s advances, unlike Avi Hack.
Mordy is not saying anything, at least not to me. The Goat has threatened to take the deposition of Mordy if the Court does not allow the Goat to change his answer.
Several months went by before the Goat’s attorney mentioned to the Federal Judge, during a routine status conference, that the Goat had lost the paperwork in his garage that he turned into a barn. The Judge told the Goat’s attorney to file a motion. The Judge also told the Goat to stay in his barn garage as punishment for eating his homework.
The Goat’s attorney filed a Motion to allow the Goat to answer the overdue questions. The Goat’s attorney claimed, for the first time, that the Goat was “offended” by the questions. How dare Mirlis accuse the Goat of behaving like an animal!
The Goat continues to host young boys at his house for Shabbat dinner every Friday night. I ran into the Goat just before the Sabbath purchasing a bouquet of cheap flowers for the boys at Edge of the Hood. The Goat would never spurge and purchase a dozen roses at a real flower shop. The Goat probably couldn’t control himself and ate the flowers in his car.
The Court has now scheduled a hearing on the Goat’s request to change his answers. Here is the Federal Court order:
ORDER. A telephonic status conference is hereby ordered for January 27, 2017 at 2:00 pm regarding defendant’s motion to amend/correct responses to plaintiff’s requests for admissions. The Court will provide the parties with the dial-in information. Signed by Judge Michael P. Shea on 1/24/2017. (Howard, H.) (Entered: 01/24/2017)
Since this blog was first posted I tracked down Mordecai and was able to speak with him. Mordecai worked for the Goat back in the 1980s. I spoke with him on 9/27/18. Attorney Mordecai told me that working for the Goat was “the worst experience of my entire life.” Mordecai said that the compound was “abusive.” He said that had he known that the Goat was raping children he would have called the police and had the Goat locked up years ago. Mordecai said that he put a mortgage on a Goat property for $50K because the Goat owed him $50K in back salary. The Goat claimed that he was having cash flow issues and could not make regular payments to Mordecai. Mordecai agreed to defer his salary. Eventually Mordecai was advised to put a lien on the Goat’s real estate. Mordecai was also advised by a New Haven Rabbi who ran a local shul for 30 years, Bikur Cholem, to leave New Haven. Mordecai told this Rabbi about the abuse he suffered under the thumb of the Goat. The Rabbi told him to leave New Haven as soon as possible. Many people who lived in the compound left for the same reason. The Goat started two Kollels in the compound. Each Kollel was disbanded by the Goat. The Kollel rabbis were forced to leave after the Goat refused to pay them. Countless Jewish families have lived in the compound, only later to be driven out by the Goat.
