Stephen Oschweritz Sued

I just found out about a new lawsuit in Los Angeles Superior Court against Stephen Oschweritz: BC390688 CASE NAME: SHALOM MOZES ET AL VS STEVEN OSCHEROWITZ ET AL.

Shalom Mozes is a Holocaust survivor in the Fairfax/La Brea side of town.

His attorney is my old friend Aviv L. Tuchman who responded via email March 31 to my polite inquiries on a different case: "Please do not email or telephone our firm. The case is a matter of public record. We do not have any further information other than what is in the public record."

Michael & Alona Horowitz had a secured claim for about a million dollars on Oschweritz’s property.

Michael & Alona Horowitz have also sued Stephen Oschweritz. Michael is the son of Richard Horowitz, the lay leader of Aish Ha Torah West Coast.

Shalom Mozes wanted Oschweritz to pay him. Oschweritz somehow removed Michael Horowitz’s lien on the property and placed Shalom Mozes’s lien on the property.

Did Oschweritz forge a signature?

This is weird. Oschweritz somehow got rid of Michael Horowitz’s lien on his property.

You go to sleep one night thinking you’re a secured creditor and you wake up finding you’re an unsecured creditor.

Horowitz sued Oschweritz in bankruptcy court to remove the Mozes lien.

This created a mess.

Mozes didn’t do anything wrong.

Mozes has now sued Oschweritz.

Here are some related documents: here and here

Before Steven Oschweritz filed for bankruptcy, he apparently transferred a ton of money to various Orthodox institutions.

Does anyone know anything about bankruptcy law and lawsuits for the recovery of preferential transfers and fraudulent conveyences?

A bankruptcy judge has the right to order that all transfers out of the estate on the eve of bankruptcy are to be brought back into the estate for distribution.

Just before declaring bankruptcy, this Steven Oscherwitz bloke apparently transferred a ton of assets to yeshivas and other Jewish institutions and individual Jews.

Chapter Seven trustee for Universal Merchants Inc, David L. Ray, has now initiated over 100 lawsuits to recover assets.

Here’s the recovery action against the Spinka Hasidim.

Here’s a note from point 12 of this lawsuit: "The Trustee’s investigation reveals that, for many years pre-petition, Mr. Oscherowitz commingled his personal and business finances, including those of UMI. Mr. Oscherowitz transferred substantial amounts of funds both to and from these entities and, in many instances, credited and charged personal expenses to advance accounts."

From point 14: Pllaintiff believes…the Debtors transferred…no less than $15,000 to the defendant.

Here’s the recovery against Yeshiva Gedola of Los Angeles. The plaintiff alleges the defendant transferred no less than $32,000 to the yeshiva.

Here are some of the other parties getting sued: YESHIVA RAV ISACSOHN ACADEMY, BAIS YAAKOV SCHOOL FOR GIRLS (Los Angeles), KEHILAS YAAKOV, EZER YELADIM, LA BREA KOSHER MARKET, CONGREGATION CHAKAL YITZCHOK, JERUSALEM TOURS, SHOCKWAVE MARKETING, CONGREGATION NOTZER CHESED, BNOS CHAYIL, BAIS YAAKOV OF ADAS YEREIM, ASHER AROM, CAMP RAV TOV, MIFAL CHESED, INC., A NEW YORK NOT-FOR-P, CENTRAL RABBINICAL SEMINARY, SHALOM TORAH CENTERS, CHEDER OF LOS ANGELES, CBP MOSAD, GEMACH ZICHRON SHMIEL ZANVEL, CONGREGATION ADAS YEREIM, KOLLEL TIFERES YAAKOV YOSEF, GEMACH TZEDAKA VECHESED, KOLLEL NER AVROHOM, BNOS MENACHEM, YESHIVA IMREI JOSEPH OF SPINKA, OHR YAAKOV YOSEF, CHEDER MENACHEM, BETH HAMEDRESH RACMAY HAUB, BNEI SHIMON YISROEL D’SHORAN, CONGREGATION BETH CHAIM, CONGREGATION BNOS MOSHE, CAMP MACHNE DIVRIE YOEL CORP., OHR YAACOV,KEREN CHASANIM D’SATMAR, INC., COL HITZTACHAS, RABBI SHLOMO ALGAZ, MOSDOS SPINKA, YESHIVAS YOSEF D’KROLA, CITY GLATT, INC., A CALIFORNIA CORPORATION, YESHIVAS OHR YAAKOV, CONGREGATION BAIS MOSHE OF KORUV, YESHIVA BNEI SHIMON D’SHOPRON, MOSDOS HACHESED, AGUDATH CHASIDEI SPINKA, CONGREGATION CHEVRA KADISHA, MID-CITY CHABAD, INC…
