JewsOnFirst conversation with Paul Weinbaum

Retired teacher says he will appeal dismissal of cases

Audio interview by Rabbi Haim Dov Beliak, November 14, 2006

In this ten-minute audio interview, Paul Weinbaum tells JewsOnFirst co-director Haim Dov Beliak about the local hostility to his lawsuits. He also says that it was difficult, at first, to serve as his own lawyer.

Contrary to the assertion by Focus on the Family, Weinbaum said the ACLU has had no involvement in either case. Now that the cases are at the appeals stage, however, he said he is contacting the major national Jewish organizations and asking them to write amicus curiae briefs.
