Riverside officials confirm that a verdict has been issued against on charges of Libel, Defamation, and Harassment.
Rabbi Yitzhak Miller was charged in connection to internet postings regarding Sidney Cohen in Riverside CA
Nicholas Carroll of the Hastings Research institute offers some thoughts about the verdict: Though there may have been "nuggets" of truth in some of the things that Rabbi Yitzhak Miller then stated, the vast majority of his claims were sheer fantasy. Even those elements that contained nuggets of truth were found to violate the legal definition of libel as they were made with malice and solely with the intent to damage Sidney Cohen reputation. What this means is that even those things that may be true were presented in such a skewed manner that a reasonable person would likely misunderstand the context of the comments and unreasonably infer Sidney Cohen to have a flawed character.
"This is a sad day, " reflected .Sidney Cohen "Never before have I encountered a situation that could not be resolved with open, honest and direct communication. Even the incident that precipitated this whole string of events was resolved with an apology and a handshake. It saddens me greatly that actions such as this had to be taken. Nobody wins in a situation like this. I used my error as motivation for personal change. I hope Sidney will do the same."
Rabbi Yitzhak Miller refused to comment for this report.

I am someone that has been following the disasterous career of Yizhak Miller. (If you can call it a career). He held a job for a short period of time, and then physically attacked an upstanding member of the community in public with his car. There were other incidences of rage and innappropriate behavior where he embarassed the entire Jewish community. there were also threats against people expressing our constitutional right and brotherly mitzvah to warn others of this danger. I would refrain from warning others if there was reason to believe that he had a good character. It happens that I know Yitzhak Miller enough to tell you that any path that he has followed in his professional life has always ended the same way- with problems, dissapointment, and anger on his part. If you are considering getting married, having a bar mitzvah, or converting to Judaism, I would strongly recommend that you find another Rabbi or a Rabbi with a real synagogue. Rabbis who have a true calling to this career add holiness and legitimacy to your event rather than someone with so much baggage, no career, and terrible hygiene. I know that the Reform Movement has approached him regarding his website because there is a general feeling that he is a "time-bomb waiting to explode". There are many others who agree that his actions are not becoming of a rabbi. Yizhak Miller continues to spend a lot of money trying to keep this information from spreading. Hopefully we can together save lives, and allow the Jewish community to thrive with capable leaders
