Satmar in court, again

Satmar dueling brothers, another court day, another chilul hashem:

Record :

A crowd of Hasidic spectators sat riveted yesterday as an Orange County judge grilled lawyers about his request to have the 91-year-old leader of the Satmar Hasidic sect testify to settle a critical question in a case before him. "Is he physically capable, yes or no?" demanded acting state Supreme Court Justice Stewart Rosenwasser.
His case began as a dispute over which of Satmar's two warring factions owns the Kiryas Joel cemetery. But it quickly rekindled a convoluted, neverending fight for control of the main Satmar organization in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn.
Attorneys for the side closest to Moses Teitelbaum told Rosenwasser the grand rebbe has already addressed the issue he was probing and shouldn't have to do so twice. They offered to provide supporting testimony instead.
An exasperated Rosenwasser ordered both sides to submit any final written arguments within a week and promised a decision before the end of the year.

HYDE PARK has some court records.
