The following correction appeared in the June 15, 1992, edition of the Observer.
A front-page story in the May 18, 1992, edition of The New York Observer reported on a lawsuit concerning Goldman, Sachs & Company, Lewis M. Eisenberg and an ex-policeman, Gary Moskowitz. It appears that a conclusion has finally been reached in this matter.
Mr. Moskowitz’s two-year campaign to discredit Goldman, Sachs and Mr. Eisenberg and to win financial benefits for himself actually ended in January of this year when a State court dismissed all of his complaints.
Mr. Moskowitz had made two previous accusations against Mr. Eisenberg and Goldman Sachs & Company, both of which had been rejected and found to be without merit. A criminal complaint was thrown out by the Manhattan District Attorney’s office in 1989; in 1990 following a two-week police administration hearing. Mr. Moskowitz’s allegations were determined to be unfounded and the hearing officer deemed his conduct to have “bordered on criminal extortions.” He was subsequently dismissed by the police force.
A civil suit brought by Mr. Eisenberg’s former secretary, Kathy Abraham, at Mr. Moskowitz’s instigation and with his assistance, was discontinued last year without the secretary receiving any money in regard to that case. At Mr. Moskowitz’s police hearing, her statements regarding events were viewed by the hearing judge as “absurd” and “preposterous”.
Ms. Abraham has recently released a statement declaring her regret for the things she had said and done- and apologizing for the pain her actions caused her own family and Mr. Eisenberg and his family. She stated that Mr. Eisenberg never harassed her or hurt her in any way.
Mr. Moskowitz is attempting to continue his campaign with legal suits against Mayor David Dinkins, Police Commissioner Lee Brown and The New York Police Department.
The New York Observer apologizes for any harm that its story caused Mr. Eisenberg and his family.
