The litigation jihadists, Hamas-linked CAIR, are being hoisted with their own petard. Two lawsuits are in full swing against the supremacist Muslim Brotherhood organization, CAIR. I can barely wait for the discovery phase. Don't you love it?
Police Shut-down Event Promoting U.S. Constitution. TMLC Files Lawsuit against Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-MI); Allegan Officials »
ANN ARBOR, MI – In the middle of an event to extol the virtues of the U.S. Constitution and “American Laws For American Courts,” the audience learned first-hand how easy it is to lose their freedom of Speech and Assembly. Amid shouts of “What about free speech?” from the audience, the Allegan Police Department ordered the event shut-down. School officials notified police that they had received a letter complaining about the event from Dawud Walid, Executive Director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-MI). The letter asked the school to disallow the event despite an existing contract. CAIR was named as an unindicted co-conspirator in the largest terrorism funding trial in U. S. history, U.S. v. Holy Land Foundation.
As a result, the Thomas More Law Center (TMLC), a national public interest law firm based in Ann Arbor, Michigan, announced yesterday that the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR- MI), its Executive Director, the City of Allegan, theAllegan Police Department and the School District were named as defendants in a thirty-four page civil rights lawsuit filed in the Federal District Court for the Western District of Michigan, this morning. The claims included constitutional and contract violations. [Click here for copy of federal complaint]
Richard Thompson, President and Chief Counsel of the Law Center commented, “It’s amazing how much clout CAIR has with the political establishment of both parties in Lansing and throughout Michigan and the nation. This, despite the fact that CAIR has its roots in the Muslim Brotherhood, was listed as an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation trial, and the FBI’s former chief of counterterrorism, noted that CAIR, its leaders, and its activities effectively give aid to international terrorist groups."
Continued Thompson, “Press accounts make it clear that an indictment naming CAIR as a defendant in the Holy Land Foundation trial was squelched by Attorney General Holder’s office d

AFLC Files Motion and Memorandum of Law in CAIR Undercover Operations Case
On May 2, 2012, AFLC Co-Founders and Senior Counsel Robert Muise and David Yerushalmi filed a motion and memorandum of law explaining to the court that the case, Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) v. Paul David Gaubatz, et al., is ripe for the court to rule in favor of AFLC's client, the Center for Security Policy (CSP), against CAIR as a matter of law.
In 2008, Dave Gaubatz, an experienced federal investigator, was hired as an independent contractor to assist with a field research documentary on which CSP was working. Dave Gaubatz trained his son, Chris, for the task of working undercover as an intern with CAIR. During the internship, Chris wore an audio-video recorder on his clothing to obtain recordings of the routine activities of an intern at the organization. At some point during Chris’s internship at CAIR, it became clear that a major fraud had taken place and that CAIR officials and employees were attempting to cover it up.
As a result, Dave Gaubatz subsequently published a book entitled, Muslim Mafia: Inside the Secret Underworld that's Conspiring to Islamize America, which was an expose on CAIR. Shortly after the book was published, CAIR filed a lawsuit in federal court in Washington, D.C. against Dave and Chris Gaubatz. CAIR then amended its lawsuit to add CSP and several of its employees. CAIR’s lawsuit alleges violations of various federal wiretap and hacking statutes as well as several common law torts, such as breach of fiduciary duty and trespass, among others.
AFLC has forcefully argued in its memorandum of law that CAIR has failed to provide any evidence to support its legal claims and has, in fact, demonstrated that it has no evidentiary support for these claims. Consequently, AFLC is requesting that the court permit the early filing of a motion for summary judgment since the case is ripe for dismissal. Read the motion and memorandum here.
