But anyone who has ever had to endure the consequences of the disorder knows it is not a source of entertainment. Prepare yourself for a long, difficult journey. ‘Many smaller landlords seek to minimize confrontation and unpleasantness, particularly when they live in the same building with their tenants,’ said Lucas A. Ferrara, a Manhattan real estate lawyer and adjunct professor at New York Law School. ‘Maybe the owner was looking for a way to get the letter writer to leave with minimal drama.’”

Observer, “The Pollard Pawn”

August 04, 2015

 

 

 

 

NYLS Faculty: Robert Blecker
Subject: Convicted Spy Jonathan Pollard

“Convicted spy Jonathan Pollard is about to be paroled after serving 30 years in federal prisons. Pollard pled guilty in 1986 to one count of espionage for sharing secrets with the Israelis. Pollard, a Stanford graduate who also completed graduate work at the Tufts Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy while working as a U.S. Navy analyst, passed secrets to Israeli intelligence about Arab, Pakistani and Soviet military intelligence. None of it revealed American secrets or harmed American interests. Constitutional scholar Robert Blecker points out that the ‘message’ of a harsh sentence is rarely heard by someone contemplating a crime. Rather it is the assessment of whether and how quickly they’ll get caught—rather than the potential severity of the punishment—that affects behavior.”
