In the News: Jackie Mason Cries Blues, Short Fuse, Sues Jews, No Schmooze, Who'll Lose?By now, you've probably heard that Jackie Mason has slapped a $4 million lawsuit on Jews for Jesus - for using his public likeness on a public pamphlet (although he is a public figure; details at the Jews for Jesus main site) and for, get this, confusing his audience ("Now they're going to wonder, is he a Jew or a Gentile? I'm going to have to write a whole new act" - WCBS-TV interview). Mason did not attempt to contact Jews for Jesus before launching his suit. Did Jews for Jesus slip up? Will Jackie Mason have to write a new act?
For an audio opinion about the suit, listen to this MP3 file (and for permission to reuse, contact Jews for Jesus).
