Appellate Court To Allow State’s Appeal In Eisemann Case To Move Forward

A New Jersey Appellate Court has agreed to hear the prosecution’s appeal in the Eisemann case, TLS has learned.

Superior Court Judge Joseph Paone ruled earlier this summer to vacate the two guilty verdicts against SCHI founder Rabbi Osher Eisemann and ordered a new trial.

Prosecutors then sought to overturn the judge’s ruling and asked for permission to present their case before the appeals court.

Today, the appeals court agreed to hear the challenge.

The appeal is known as an interlocutory appeal, which means they are not appealing a final judgment, but rather a ruling in an ongoing case, as the judge did not dismiss the case entirely, but rather ordered a new trial.

The Appellate judge overseeing this appeal is not the same judge that handled the initial appeal after the trial in 2019, which resulted in the case being sent for resentencing.

A date has not been set yet for each party to file their briefs, which will be followed by oral arguments.

Judge Paone had originally set Wednesday, February 1, 2023 as the date for jury selection of a new trial, and opening statements to commence on February 6, the following Monday. He also set December 1, 2022 as a date for a pre-trial hearing, when both parties could discuss the details of the new trial.

However, those dates are now in doubt, as the appeals process will likely take a few months at minimum.

With the years-long legal saga now set to drag on for an even longer time period, the legal fees will only continue to mount, and the family has set up a website where donations can be made.

  1. If everyone would write letters to the Appeal Court Judges, IMHO, it would make a difference.
    Enough with this Court Case.
    Time to go after Real Criminals!

  2. Unbelievable how determined these losers are to put this chosheve man behind bars. Even l’shitusum, how does what he did warrant spending so much money on prosecuting this man when so many dangerous criminals run around free. I don’t know for sure but certainly smells like good old fashioned sinas yisroel.

  3. I agree that letters is a good idea.
    I have another Food for Thought:
    From now till Motzei Yom Kippur is a special time to daven and Hashem answers during these days with less prayers compared to the month of Cheshvan ( as an example).
    Let us all try to daven these days for Rabbi Eisemann and for peace in the entire world and for Mashiach to come to us through peaceful means.

  4. The Justice system is unbelievably unjust! Im ain din lmattah yesh din lmalleh! Those who are persecuting Rabbi Eisenman shlita will be severely dealt with by the true Judge the melech malchei h’molchim.

    There are those amongst us who in defiance of the Torah Hkdosha litigate in the secular court against other Jews. Witnessing the injustice of said system should be cause for those porkei ol to think twice!
