The lead plaintiff in a class-action lawsuit of survivors seeking to regain Holocaust-era assets form Swiss banks accused her attorney of lying to his clients, according to the Associated Press. Gizella Weisshaus charged in letters sent to a federal judge in New York that Edward Fagan lied when he said that the lawsuit would be limited to claims from private individuals. Fagan said he believes Weisshaus is worried that Jewish groups working to receive the lost assets would end up with the money.
