Islamists accused of letting fake lawyer take cases
A brief filed in federal court in Washington is alleging that the Council on American-Islamic Relations is "a criminal organization that deceptively holds itself out to the public as the nation's largest Muslim-American civil rights organization."
The filing is from the American Freedom Law Center, whose co-founder, David Yerushalmi, is representing clients who reportedly sought legal advice from a CAIR representative who was not a lawyer.
The two civil lawsuits were filed earlier alleging that CAIR, which was named by the U.S. Justice Department as an unindicted terrorist co-conspirator, was aware that its "resident attorney" and "manager for civil rights" at a now-defunct Maryland-Virginia Chapter, Morris Days, was not a lawyer and failed to provide legal services for Muslims to came to CAIR for help.
