American lawyer Ed Fagan wants to sue multinational companies that operated in South Africa under apartheid, as well as the new South African government for allegedly siding with those companies and frustrating the lawsuit that he wants to bring.

Via some involvement in public interest law, I've heard a bit about Ed Fagan and frankly he strikes me as an opportunist with all the wrong motives. His interest in pursuing these claims is largely that he stands to benefit immensely by claiming 30% of the damages. I also can't help but wonder who the 'class' of victims is who he claims to represent. All black people who lived under apartheid? Surely not. A select handful of victims? If so, who are these people and how were they chosen?

I'm also not surprised that the South African government hasn't facilitated this lawsuit. Quite clearly their interest, and the interest of all South Africans, is in promoting the country as a safe investment destination. It's largely companies like IBM that are, after all, via employment equity, providing opportunities for young black professionals. It would not be in the best interests of South Africa -- even if it would be in Ed Fagan's -- for the government to facilitate this lawsuit. More fundamentally, I very much doubt that they have a legal duty to do so, which is what Fagan seems to allege.

So, I doubt whether Ed Fagan is a fighter for justice motivated by the best interests of all South Africans. More likely a media-hungry lawyer out to make what he refers to as a 'killing.'

I worked briefly for Ed Fagen in 1992 and can tell you one absolute truth about him which I have heard directly from his mouth.

ITS ALL ABOUT THE MONEY. He said the Nazi case cost him his marrige, not true, his infidelity cost him his marrige, not his case.

A collegue once told him, Ed, if your not in it for the money, why don't you go sue victims that are still alive and suffering as in Africa, the mass killings that their goverments allow, instead of sueing companies for people who died generations ago, who's desendents have never expierenced the pain and suffering first hand.

Ed Fagen, is a money hungry JEW. He said he only got 1.3 million for the Nazi cases, not true, which his tax returns can show. Mr. Fagen still recieves ongoing payments to this day.

Hey Mr. Fagen, I think you dropped a penny, remember that from that resturant down the street from your office.

Same old pig.

Ed Fagan used to be know in the 70s as Ezekiel ("Yehezkiel") Fagan and was a leader in an Orthodox Jewish youth group in the midwest. It's a shame he never took to heart the ethical and moral lessons he espoused on a regular basis.

Ed Fagan, attorney (ha), ambulance chaser (most definately), Jackass (absolutely).

I was present at a hearing where his "best friend" (his words) was attempting to get reimbursed for the $780,000.00 he had lent Fagan to be able to pursue his Holocaust lawsuit.

Unfortunately, his friend had been diagnosed with ALS for which there is no cure.

Fagan, (I refuse to call him Mr.) had lied to the judge on many occasions and accused his friend of trying to extort money from the now "famous" attorney and worse yet, stating it to the newspapers.

He was basically waiting for his friend to die so he wouldn't have to pay back what he now stole.

I hope he gets what he deserves, disbarment from his profession, and hopefully, jail time.

He is the lowest form of scum on this earth.
