According to the online database of the NYS Court System, webcrims, Nechemya Weberman’s next scheduled court appearance is on the second day of Sukkot, October 2, in Part 21, in front of Judge Ingram. Weberman’s lawyer, George Farkas could perhaps appear without Weberman. Still according to halachah there is no justification for paying a Jew to work on yom tov. NYS always obliges orthodox Jews by rescheduling to avoid shabbat and yom tov.
Will Weberman give Farkas a holiday bonus of time-and-a-half?
Update (9/23/12): I have confirmed that as of 9/20, according to the DA’s office there was a “status conference” scheduled for Oct 2, Yom Tov Sheni of Sukkot. So, now on top of being a menuval and a ganif, it also turns out that our vaad hatznius tzadik is also a mechallel Shabbat v’Yom Tov.
Update (10/5/12) I have confirmed that George Farkas did indeed appear in Brooklyn Supreme Court on behalf of Nechemya Weberman on the 2nd day of Sukkos. Also appearing was the newest member of their team, Stacey Richman, esq, an attorney with quite a reputation for defending rappers arrested on gun charges. She seems to have an affinity for thugs who wear fur.
