The case of the hidden sex suit

The complaint, above, used block letters, "ABC," "DEF" and so forth, to identify the plaintiff and defendants, but the amended complaint, below, used their full names.
 




The wrongful-discharge and sexual-harassment lawsuit Craig C. Caso of Maywood filed in 2000 against Jennifer A. Borg, vice president and general counsel of North Jersey Media Group, was sent to the Trenton archives of state Superior Court.

The archives aren't open to the public or accessible online.
    
Eye on The Record sent a request by snail mail for a copy of the lawsuit after anonymous tipsters revealed its existence, but warned the names of the plaintiff and defendants had been hidden.

The blog followed immediately with a second letter, requesting the defendants' answer to the complaint.

This past Friday, a large manila envelope arrived with the original complaint, an amended complaint and several motions filed by Pitney, Hardin, Kipp & Szuch, lawyers for the defendants.

The answer to the lawsuit wasn't included.

Only the original lawsuit, filed for the plaintiff by attorney Randall G. Tashjian of Hackensack, hid the names of those involved behind block letters.

All of the other legal papers sent to Eye on The Record carried the full names.  

I couldn't reach the plaintiff's lawyer to find out why the block letters were used when the suit was filed on Feb. 14, 2000, or why they were abandoned in the amended complaint, which is dated July 1, 2000.

  2. Do you think NJMG will try and file suit against you for this story like they tried in the past on your other postings? Whats you opinion on this lawsuit?

  3. No, I don't. As for the suit, it's bizarre, like the one filed against the father. Obviously, there are lots of skeletons in the closet.

  5. Randall Tashjian died in 2006. Look up the "Lawyers Fund for Client Protection" on NJ Courts and do a search for his name.
    The Fund had to pay out over $600,000 to 19 victims because of this corrupt Attorney. Contillo new he was corrupt and let him withdraw from case by filing a motion to withdrawl.(A stratigic move by the court house and the Judge to get rid of the case,it didnt work.) The case was picked up by Frank Fitzsimmons (deceased) of his chatam NJ lawfirm.Lawyer Robert Gallop (alive)who worked for Fitzsimmons settled the case on the Record in 2004 with Judge Joseph Yannotti, the Judge read ABC vs DEF into the record instead of the amended names. Another cover up for the Borgs??? It was the courthouses job to amended the names and someone didnt do there job.(Cover up?) Just like none of the Judges or Bergen Bar Association did anything about Mr.Tasjian,you know if there was a reported 19 victims there has to be more.Lawyers covering for lawyers at the Bergen County Courthouse. The documents you recieved from Trenton were a small fraction generated at the BC Courthouse some of the documents didnt make it to Trenton because the Judges put different docket numbers on a few opinions. A trick Judges use. The paperwork ends up in a different file than is discarded (sad but true).Also a ABC filing is used when there is a minor involved and is legal.
    How did the Borgs get away with it? You know it. Cause Jennifer was a member of the Bergen Bar Association (now passaic) her license to practice law was at stake. You might want to add why the Record didnt cover the story, of course we know why. PS Wendy Lario was Jennifers attorney from Pitt,Hardin that agreed on the ABC with Mr. Tashjian.

    1. The ABC/DEF, NJMG/BORG case was sent to The Lawyers Fund in a claim against Randall Tashjian there were 19 victims of Tashjian. Mr. Tashjian made a motion to Judge Robert Contillo to withdraw from the ABC Borg/NJMG case. Plantiff told Judge that Tashjian was Corrupt and the Judge did nothing about it. Hense, there was a future 19 NJ Victims of Mr. Tashjian.Could this have been prevented? YES!Lawyers covering for Lawyers. Was it possible that the Lawyers Fund Denied the Plaintiffs claim because it was Hidden for North Jersey Media Group the Borgs under a hidden title? There was 19 victims,the Plaintiff was the 20th case filed and the claim was Denied. All claims paid out for the Lawyers Fund in Trenton must be Published Publicly. WAS THIS CLAIM DENIED TO COVER FOR NJMG/BORGS HIDDEN SEX SUIT FOR LAWYER JENNIFER A BORG ESQ? "LAWYERS COVERING FOR LAWYERS"!

    2. Letter From Judge Contillo to Plaintiff regarding
      Mr. Tashjians motion to withdraw from case witch was Granted had wrong Docket number on the letter and wrong company name(Not,NJMG)thats why it was not in Mr. Sassons information package he recieved from Trenton on ABC vs DEF. MORE COVER UP FOR NJMG/BORGS at the Bergen County Courthouse????

      Delete
    3. Mr. Sasson, about the complaint you recieved from Trenton on the ABC vs DEF Case that is property of the State of NJ stored on microfilm in Trenton.How come you didn't write about the Courts Opinion of the Sexual Harassment portion of the complaint? Let me Help you with the answer,Mr. Sasson. Because the Opinion signed by the Court had the wrong Docket number on the Documentation,hense it never made it to Trenton. More cover Up from the Bergen County Courthouse/Bar for the BORGS/NJMG???

    4. A phone call to Trenton to inquire about retaining the correct paperwork to file a Ethics Complaint against BORG/Legal Dept at North Jersey Media Group discovered that the 19 Ethics Violations that are documented at the NJ Lawyers Fund for Client Protection against Randall Tashjian Esq. are not Documented with the Office of Attorney Ethics in Trenton. How can a Lawyer in the State of NJ have 19 Ethics complaints filed against him,(which the 19 victims were compensated for by The Lawyers Fund) have a NJ Lawyers License still in good standings on file at the NJ Office of Attorney Ethics? Doesnt the Lawyers Fund for Client Protection established to Protect NJ citizens against Corrupt NJ Lawyers communicate with the NJ Office of Attorney Ethics which was also established to protect the Public against Corrupt NJ Lawyers? Its the NJ Supreme Court who is responsible and Governs The Office of NJ Attorney Ethics and The NJ Lawyers Fund for Client Protection. The Protection of NJ Citizens against Corrupt NJ Lawyers. Sounds like someone is not doing there job here in NJ to inform the Public. NJ Good Samaritan Laws Apply. The Federal Government should be notified of this.

      Will North Jersey Media Group investigate this story?
      Probably Not! What an Exclusive for Legally Speaking NJ Reporters with a License to Practice Law in the State of NJ! Who will confront the Supreme Court on the above matter? NJMG and there Premier NJ Lawyers? ABC.

  7. This case along with Jennifer Borgs Domestic Violence case was given to the Bergen County Prosecuters office for review.

  8. I imagine the prosecutor has finished his review.

  9. The prosecutors office said they dont investigate civil rights cases. I sent them the 10 pages I found on the NJ Courts online public access system about the case and now there are only two pages left about the case in the system for public viewing. Case Detail,Case Document list are available with no information on the pages. Case Attorney list,Proceeding list,SCP servive list,Notice list,Disposition list,Track Inquiry list,Fee Receipts list and Case Judgement list are all missing now. Im not saying the information I gave the prosecutors office had anything to do with the information missing on NJ Courts online,that might be just how the system works. But it sure was interesting seeing the information there months before I sent a letter to the prosecuters office than weeks later it was gone. Coincidents? Possible the way infomation about cases are managed by the county and/or state and deleted over time? Dont know.

  12. The Law Office of Epstein, Brown & Gioia former law office of deceased Frank Fitzsimmons who handled the case gave the plaintiff 6 of the 7 boxes of the original case file including Deps,Transcripts,Motions,Billing Information,NJMG Employee Info,Macromedia Info, one of the boxes was destroyed.Destroying this evidence was a violation of court rules, unethical conduct. This case and the files recovered are going to be turned over to the Office of Attorney Ethics of the Supreme Court of NJ for review. The Ethics of the Lawyers envolved in this case and NJMG will be judged for misconduct under the NJ Rules of Professional Conduct for the Protection of the Public.

  14. Letter from John J.O'Reilly Certified Criminal Trial Attorney for the Law Firm Day Pitney LLP,One Jefferson Road Parsippanny,NJ 07054,T:(973)-966-8043. Representing Jennifer A Borg/NJMG Vice President and Legal Counsel for North Jersey Media Group.(The Record Newspaper)Sent to Mr. Craig Caso letter dated January 8,2013. Mr. O'Rielly was the Lead Counsel at trial for Jennifer A Borgs Publicly tried Domestic Violence Case at the Bergen County Courthouse in or about January 2009,Judge Lisa Perez Friscia was the presiding Judge. The Letter to Mr. Caso reads as followed.

    Jennifer Borg vs Craig Caso case FV-02-1438-09

    Dear Mr. Caso:
    As you know, I represent Jennifer Borg who has a Restraining Order outstanding against you since February 2,2009.There have been modifications to the Order regarding counseling; however, the restraints have never been modified in any way by any of the Judges before whom you have appeared. The latest Order filed March 30,2012 by Judge Mary F. Thurber,J.S.C. continues the February 2,2009 Restraining Order in all its term and conditions including that you are not permitted to contact Ms. Borg or her family members either yourself or through third parties and this includes anonymous contact (see attached). Yesterday I sent you an e-mail to Cease and Desist from putting any messages on the EYE ON THE RECORD BLOG or any other blog about the Borg family.
    I also left a message on your home phone with the same instructions. We have recently noticed anonymous entries on the EYE ON THE RECORD BLOG which could only come from you since they contain information that is not public and can only be possessed by the parties in the action.Please see the attached copy of the Blog. In addition, you make reference to Ms. Borg being convicted of sexual harassment which is not true in any shape or form and no judgement to that effect has ever been entered against her in any court. That statement constitutes libel because you of all people know it is not accurate. Your matter was settled and it is the ("SUBJECT" OF A CONFIDENTIALITY "ORDER")which you persist in violating. I ask that you Cease and Desist from all written and verbal communications with Jennifer Borg or third parties about Jennifer Borg whether directly or indirectly or anonymously and that you remove from the EYE ON THE RECORD BLOG the entries you previously provided to them by Friday, January 10,2013.
    If you continue to post information about Ms. Borg or you fail to take down the previous entries on the Blog by January 10,2013 date, we will be forced to take whatever legal action we deem appropriate consistent with Judge Thurber's order.
    If you have any questions, please contact me.
    Very truly yours, John J. O'Rielly.

    This letter was sent to Mr. Caso and Mr. Caso could not respond to the letter because Mr. John J O'Reilly is on Ms. Borgs Restraining Order as one of the persons he can not communicate with,Orally,Written or Electronicly. Mr O'Rielly knows Mr. Caso can not contact him because he would be in violation of the Restraining Order. This letter was reported to the local police and a complaint was filed reporting this Harrassment from Mr. O'Reilly and Jennifer A Borg to try to intrap Mr.Caso into Violating the Restraining Order. This informaton was also sent to Judge Mary F.Thurber Bergen County Courthouse.

    Mr.Victor Sasson publisher of Eye on the Record was also part of Ms. Borgs Domestic Violence trial when Mr.O'Rielly presented the court with Exhibit Stamped,BORG-A-00020 with Mr. Sassons name on the documentation. A Civil suit against Ms.Borg and NJMG will soon follow.

    4. When signing a Ethics Complaint against a Lawyer in Private Practice in the State of NJ the Complaint needs to be filed in the District (County) that the Lawyer has a Practice. If there is a Ethics Complaint filed against an Attorney that is working for a NJ Corporation the Complaint is sent directly to the Ethics Review Board in Trenton. Bergen County/Bar Politics will not be involved.

    5. The January 8,2013 letter sent from John J. O'Reilly from the Law office of Day/Pitney representing the Borg Family/NJMG ends there letter by saying "Forced to take whatever legal action deem appropriate". This is a Terroristic Threat,(Terroristic Threat is legally defined as Reckless Endangering another Person,Harassment,Intimidation) by John J O'Reilly,and his Associate who was Co-Counsel on Borg/NJMG Domestic Violence Case, Arab Speaking Mark "SALAH" Morgan of Day/Pitney and a Terroristic Threat by Borg/NJMG. Its been over 4 months since this Terroristic Threat Letter by John J O'Reilly, Jennifer A Borg Esq.and North Jersey Media Group "NJ Trusted Source"and there has been NO LEGAL ACTION TAKEN against Mr. Caso on the above January 8,2013 letter. There are Hundreds of Thousands of Record Newspaper Readers in the State of NJ and they will all be notified of the Terroristic Threat Capabilities of the Borg,The Record Newspaper and North Jersey Media Group Family. NJ Good Samaritan Laws Protecting NJ Citizens against Terroristic Threat Letters from the Borg/NJMG Family applies.

  19. Guess you dont need a copy of the above Jan 8,2013 letter now that your Federal case is settled. Notice how Mr. O'Reilly says "Subject of a Confidentiality Order" in his letter.
    Orders come from the Courts signed by a Judge. Notice how he didnt refer to the Judge that signed a Confidentiality Order on case ABC vs DEF? He didnt because there is no Order signed by a Judge,more Deception,Misconduct and Harassment from John J O'Rielly,Jennifer Borg and NJMG,North Jerseys "Trusted Source".
    The hidden ABC vs DEF case is now filed in Civil and Family Court at the Bergen County Courthouse,On microfilm in Trenton,The Lawyers Fund for Client Protection in Trenton, Hackensack Police and Municipality,The Bergen County Prosecuters Office and was reviewed by at least Five Judges. Before the FV-02-1438-09 trial Defendant told the Judge that the Borgs/NJMG will continue the Harassment of there employees, Defendant was correct when Malcolm Borg and Jennifer Borg were sued again for harassment and lost on case Ber-l-10722-09. Samuel Samaro Esq.and Jennifer A Borg Harassed the Plaintiff of case L-10722-09, so bad during the Plaintiffs deposition that the Plaintiffs Attorney had to stop the deposition and tell Mr. Samaro and Ms. Borg to leave,the harassment was reported to the Pre-Trial Judge. Now the Head of the Legal Dept at North Jersey Media Group the Record Newspaper Jennifer A Borg Esq. will face the NJ Ethics Review Board and the above legal professionals will act as witness for the Complaint filed with the NJ Ethics Review Board. This process takes about six months according to the NJ Attorney Ethics Review Board.

  20. Mr. Sasson in the letter dated Jan.8,2013 on the May 6,2013 post,it says. "Directly,Indirectly or Anonymously". Seems Attorney John J O'Reilly from the Semi-powerful Lawfirm Day/Pitney doesnt want to Legally acknowledge that his Client Jennifer A Borg, Attorney and Owner of North Jersey Media Group and The Record Newspapaer, "New Jerseys Trusted Source" has her Sexual Harassment/Employment Lawsuit "Anonymously Posted" on the Public Access internet site "New Jersey Courts Online" under the Caption ABC vs DEF,Case Ber-1308-02. Whats your opinion on this and your opinion of the posted letter about your Blog, Eye on the Record?

  21. You've posted a lot of interesting material on this site, but I don't really have the time to go through it and comment. I do work part time to keep busy and travel around the metro area, plus volunteer at the hospital one day a week. I still haven't found time to go to the courthouse and look up the Van Lenten matter. Plus, a settlement I just signed precludes me from commenting directly on a certain person. Thanks.

  22. Mr. Sasson since you dont want to get involved with some of the comments with NJMG and the court system (because of your own legal battles with NJMG,which I respect)and since your a seasoned Journalist,do you have connections with any other Reporters or Connections to Media Groups like the Associated Press. I'd like to take my Legal issues with Borg/NJMG and the Bergen County Courthouse Public to help me retain a Lawfirm that is in a position of Power concerning Borg/NJMG.I went to the Bergen Bar Association in Hackensack for a referral for an Attorney for legal advice on Borg/NJMG and the Bergen County Court regarding case FV-02-1438-09 and they denied me a referral and returned my $30.00 fee for this Public system. The last time I used the Bergen County Bar referral service in 2002 for legal assistance against NJMG they took my money and gave me a referral to a Morris County Law firm. THAT SHOULD TELL YOU SOMETHING ABOUT THE CONNECTION BETWEEN BORG/NJMG AND THE BERGEN("BORG")COUNTY COURTHOUSE. I sent that January 8,2013 letter to the Judge at the Bergen County Courthouse and the Judge wouldn't rule on it. The Borgs/NJMG have written articles on all the Judges managing the Family division at the Bergen County Court. Case FV-02-1438-09 is being managed by the Bergen County Court and Bergen County Tax payer dollars and neither the Plaintiff nor Defendant live or work in Bergen County. Mr.Sasson, Evil lives when Good people do nothing. Id like to bring Public Awareness to the Court documented Harassment Predators/Borgs to help future Victims of the Borgs/NJMG and get my own legal representation against Borg/NJMG,through the Public Media. Im sure there are a few Law firms in NJ or NY that would like to go up against NJMG and the Lawfirms they retain. NJMG have cases in all the top firms in NJ,(like a Monopoly)for someone trying to go up against them. Any help or advice going Public with my legal rights against Borg/NJMG to retain a Law Firm are greatly appreciated. Thank You,Mr. Sasson.

  23. The media are probably not going to help you. The Associated Press will protect clients like The Record at all costs. The only full-time reporter at the courthouse in Hackensack is Kibret Markos of The Record. So you are pretty much screwed. The ACLU is too busy to help. You would probably have to find someone hungry, just out of law school, who wants to make his or her name taking on one of the most powerful families around. You're also up against all the professional courtesy lawyers show to each other, suggesting they say awful things about their clients behind ther backs.

  24. Josh is hungry,but he's a solo practitioner, I need a firm that can handle a case on a contingency retainer with a few lawyers on staff to absorb cost.The last Law firm I used took my case against NJMG on a contingency basis. Im just going to write a email with all of my evidence attached on Borg/NJMG inclosed and send it out to the top 100 Law fims and Attorneys in the surrounding NY and NJ area. Looks like alot of Attorneys are going to get some free evidence about Borg/NJMG. But thats the Communication World we live in today Victor,it levels the playing field so anyone can contact anyone via email. Im sure my email will hit someone that wants to take down NJMG,they have alot of enemies. Im also going to email the oppositions of lawsuits that are currently in litigation against NJMG on NJ Courts Online for legal representation. What do you think Victor?
