The original complaint was filed a year ago, when the suit was in stituted as a result of alleged attacks in the Jewish Bakers Voice. Intimidation of bakery owners dealing with the Certified also was claimed.

Abe Schwartz and Morris Greenberg, owners of the plaintiff concern, accused the three defendants of having “deliberately and maliciously attempted to prevent the plaintiff’s customers and other Jewish bakers from purchasing the plaintiff’s products, intending to destroy the good-will of the plaintiff.”


In August of last year the Certified invited the investigation of its merchandise by the American League for the Defense of Jewish rights, Inc. Ezekiel Rabinowitz, secretary, then reported that the inquiry “has convinced us beyond a reasonable doubt that the Certified yeast sold by you is not of German origin and moreover does not contain any ingredients imported from Germany.”

Last January the firm was absolved of the charge of dealing in German goods by the Jewish Court of Arbitration. The judges on that occasion were Bernard S. Detusch, David Sarnoff and Dr. Israel Goldstein.
