NEW: Eisemann Prosecutor Accused of Misconduct in Another Case

The prosecutor who has been accused of a Brady violation by the Eisemann defense team this week is also under fire for alleged misconduct in another, unrelated case.

According to a report on the New Jersey Globe, a lawyer representing Holmdel Township slammed deputy attorney general John Nicodemo for communicating about his case with a Superior Court judge without telling him.

Nicodemo mailed a letter to Judge Linda Grasso Jones on December 21, but he did not copy any of the attorneys involved in the case and did not electronically file the letter, the NJ Globe reported.

That case pertains to a former tax appeal attorney, Matt O’Donnell, who is a participating state witness against a number of North Jersey politicians. Holmdel Township filed a civil lawsuit against O’Donnell, and Nicodemo, involved in O’Donnell’s criminal case, wrote a letter to the judge presiding over the civil case without e-filing it or sharing it with the involved attorneys.

A spokesman for the New Jersey Administrative Office of the Courts told the New Jersey Globe that Nicodemo was required to file documents electronically using the eCourts platform, and because he didn’t follow the procedure, the court staff uploaded the letter themselves three weeks later.

“As the deputy attorney general for the Office of Public Integrity and Accountability, I am extremely surprised and disappointed that you would forward a letter to Judge Grasso Jones even though you are not part of this litigation,” Holmdel’s lawyer, Jerry Dasti, wrote in a letter to Nicodemo. “It is even more shocking that you would not copy the attorneys who are representing various parties in the civil action.”

Yesterday, TLS broke a story in which lawyers for SCHI founder Rabbi Osher Eisemann accused Nicodemo of withholding key evidence from them, despite having had a legal obligation to share that evidence. Withholding evidence in a criminal case constitutes a Brady violation, which can be grounds for the convictions to be dismissed.

  1. I don’t know the law, but I would think that if this and the other accusation is proven, this could result in a charge against the prosecutor? Federal Charge? Disbar?

  2. if they would only have really tried to figure out something true about Rabbi Eisenman they would have found out just exactly how he went out on his own and helped people, children and families and many of whom cannot even say thank you because they are incapable of communicating a coherent statement which is why they needed someone sensitive like him to figure out their problem and reach out to help them while guiding the parents to overcome the embarrassment and self blame or self pity which was hindering the parents from stepping forward themselves and obtaining educational services from those who had developed the resources

  3. A similar tactic has been tried at the ribashkin trial besides scoring a few political points legally it has no bearing on his case, misconduct in one case does not affect all the cases the prosecutor ever prosecuted fairly simple.

    • In the Rubashkin case, it made his life much more miserable.
      Personal attacks on the judge, prosecutor or investigator, even when true, do not help the case at all.

  4. A similar tactic has been tried at the ribashkin trial besides scoring a few political points, legally it has no bearing on his case, misconduct in one case does not affect all the cases the prosecutor ever prosecuted fairly simple. Even if the prosecutor is removed and or punished another prosecutor will pick up where he left off.

  5. To all those people who say, “if a jury said he’s guilty, he must be guilty,” and put their full faith in the prosecutor to have legally carried out his job, this is direct correlation to prove how much underhanded play goes on. Rabbi Eisemann never did anything wrong. That was proven over and over again. But a sly prosecutor tricked a jury using all the dirty tricks in the book. SHAME ON HIM!

  6. And as you see, this new revelation in n Jersey,it’s a case against politicians, so not surprising this prosecutor uses his position to go after people he doesn’t agree with, like all the dem’s I’m Congress and in general. Welcome to the corrupt states of America brought to you by the dem’s.

    • America’s corruption is not a partisan issue. Both sides of the aisle are equally corrupt, and there is plenty of proof to go around.

  7. can anybody remember anything about what the charges against the Rabbi are?

    law isn’t meant to be that complicated, and if it starts to sound like it was deliberately confusing or unclear, then that is where it changes over from law to politics

  8. We are never privy to the חשבונות שמים and as מאמינים we don’t question the RSO but as a Schi parent and a close yedid of R’ Osher Shlita my heart breaks for what he and his family has been through these last several years. I’ve heard him in many conversations about this chapter and his אמונה and בטחון is a lesson for us all to learn from. May his ultimate ישועה that he so richly deserves come בעה”י in the very near future…

  9. @100% right, at most the prosecuter will get a displinary letter added to his file, nothing really happens to proescuters who violate a defendants constitutional rights.

  10. The legal system is full of corruption. Relying on the system to police itself is akin to have the animals guard the barn. All are reminded that thankfully we only need to plead our case to Avinu s’hbashamyim.

  11. This case probably cost the state about 200 million dollars so far, maybe even more.
    If the state has so much extra money to go after Rabbi Eisenmann, maybe we can ask the State of NJ to give to the Lakewood Police Dept. about 10% of that 200 million in order to help to find that woman who stabbed someone, she was obviously trying to kill him and the Judge said that she can go back home and now we can’t find her. I am wondering if the game changes if that woman would have stabbed a different individual who works for a specific office in the Government. If you don’t have connections to certain powerful people in Trenton, guess what , who cares if you are alive.
    I apologize to everyone in the State of NJ, but we decided that we are going to use our money to get Rabbi Eisenman even if if it means hiring 25 more detectives to look through the big trash in Staten Island to try to find some clue some hint that maybe maybe we can catch the Rabbi with at least some thing.

  12. The entire case against Rabbi Eisemann was a bull’s eye painted around the arrow from the start, exactly as we witnessed in the Rubashkin case. Baruch Hashem, Rabbi Eisemann’s evil enemies are being exposed before it is all over, and Baruch Hashem that only his prosecutors are corrupt, not his judge.
