$10 Million Dollar Lawsuit Filed Against YESHIVA TORAH TEMIMAH & LIPA MARGULIES, Alleging Sexual Abuse by Rabbi Kolko
What: Attorneys Jeffrey Herman and Adam Horowitz of HERMAN & MERMELSTEIN, P.A., and Michael Dowd, Esq., announce the filing of another ten million dollar lawsuit against YESHIVA TORAH TEMIMAH (based in the Flatbush area of Brooklyn ) in connection with the alleged sexual abuse of a minor child by RABBI YUDI KOLKO. According to the Complaint:
The victim, identified as John Doe No. 6, was enrolled as a student in TORAH TEMIMAH, where Rabbi Kolko was a rabbi and teacher.
When JOHN DOE was approximately 11-13 years old and a student at TORAH TEMIMAH, JOHN was sexually abused by Rabbi Kolko on multiple occasions. The abuse took place at various locations, including, without limitation, Rabbi Kolko’s private office in TORAH TEMIMAH and the basement of TORAH TEMIMAH.
Rabbi Margulies, the head administrator at Torah Temimah, knew of allegations that Rabbi Kolko was sexually abusing boys at Torah Temimah years before John Doe No. 6 was abused.
Despite the fact that Rabbi Margulies knew of allegations that Rabbi Kolko was sexually abusing children and was unfit to be a Rabbi or teacher at TORAH TEMIMAH, he took no action to protect the young male students at his school and continued to give Rabbi Kolko unfettered access to young children.
A copy of the lawsuit is available upon request.
