    Talk About HATE...J/1: From the desk of Michael Santomauro: August 16, 2013: Dear Mr. Steven Mandel: You continue to refer to me in your motion papers and orders to show cause papers as a "hateful person." You have referred to me in the courtroom in front ofJustice Cooper in your oral argumentsas "a man of hate." You have been very successful. That it has caused Justice Cooper to scream at me that I am an "anti-Semite and a Holocaust denier." Justice Cooper continues to refer to it with snide remarks like "unless you are a therapy denier," or "talk about baseball, like Hank Greenberg, and not about Jewish soap.": Unless there is a retraction or proof, just one proof, that I am a hateful person, or anti-Semite or a Holocaust denier; then this will have to continue to. be addressed because the ethnic and the political sensibilities has emotional crippled Mikey's lawyer and the court which includes the law clerks.: Read less
