Spitzer Filed Legal Brief, Helped Silverstein Win $4.5 B
10 Apr 2008
On the 6th anniversary of the 9/11 attack, Brooklyn activist newspaper the/ New York Megaphone/ breaks this exclusive story: NY Governor Eliot Spitzer filed an amicus brief on 1/15/03 on behalf of the World Trade Center’s controversial lease-holder, the real estate magnate Larry Silverstein. This document shows that Spitzer, as Attorney General, helped Silverstein get the whopping $4.5 billion windfall for the 9/11 attacks. The record is clear: Spitzer helped reverse a lower court’s decision, by making credible Silverstein’s argument that the two different plane crashes on 9/11/01 should be compensated as two different terrorist attacks.

EXCLUSIVE! “The Real Spitzer Scandal” a 9/11 Spitzer Scandal
The Spitzer scandals continue.

This amicus brief has never been reported before today, in print or online. It was discovered in the court archives on the 17th floor of the 2nd Circuit Court (NYC), and released to the/ New York Megaphone/ by attorney Carl Person. In reporter Sander Hicks’s exclusive story, author and lawyer Carl Person says:

“I was surprised to see that Spitzer had used his position as attorney general to support one private litigant over another. Normally, this is not done.”

Hicks’ story also covers Governor Spitzer’s recent scandals with police spying on rival Joe Bruno, the Roger Stone voice mail threat, as well as new information and interviews regarding the Spitzer links to Kroll executives Michael Cherkasky and Jerome Hauer. Hicks hands in an original interview with Jerome Hauer, probing his documented links to anthrax suspect Steven Hatfill. Hauer is widely believed to be the source of the White House’s foreknowledge about the anthrax attacks on 9/11/01.

In 2004, Eliot Spitzer was asked to investigate 9/11 by 66% of New Yorkers. Those pleas were ignored. 51% of the USA wants Bush and Cheney investigated for 9/11, according to a Zogby poll last week.

This is the 6th issue of the New York Megaphone, a quarterly newspaper published by activist writers and “Citizen Journalists Pursuing the Unreported Story” at the Vox Pop coffeehouse and community center in Ditmas Park, Brooklyn.

“The Real Spitzer Scandal” is currently distributed in a print run of 40,000 for the Fall NY Megaphone, distributed throughout NYC. Circulation is estimated to be over 62,000. “The Real Spitzer Scandal” is also online, free and in full, at This issue of the New York Megaphone also includes a wide variety of quality original reporting, small business features, and humor.
