The Lawfare Project’s (LP) Senior Counsel Gerard Filitti issued the following statement after Saadah Masoud received 18 months of incarceration and three years of suspended release for his conviction of conspiracy to commit hate crime attacks, including against LP client Matt Greenman:
“We are grateful that justice was served and thankful for the work of the Justice Department and the US Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York, but there is much more work to do. We call for a thorough investigation that brings Masoud’s co-conspirators to justice and exposes the full extent of this conspiracy.”
Brooke Goldstein, founder and executive director of The Lawfare Project, added that “the Jewish community is under constant threat with the rise of antisemitic attacks across the country and in New York City. Prosecutors must be proactive and vigorously prosecute hate crime cases to the fullest extent of the law. Cutting deals with violent Jew-haters, just like how Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg would like to do, gives the impression that it’s open season on New York City’s Jews.”
