BEST Lawsuit EVER!: Boston Man Sues UAE Sheikh

By Debbie Schlussel

Despite the litigation explosion, there are some lawsuits that should be celebrated . . . and are hopefully victorious.  This is one of them, and I think it’s my favorite lawsuit ever.  It’s got everything–from a hypocritical Muslim Arab Prince who is apparently a violent closeted gay to a Swiss hotel to a tough Italian-American law student who resisted his unwanted advances and violence and isn’t afraid of the thuggish Muslim royals.  Silvano Orsi, I’m rootin’ for you. Let’s hope the Federal Court in Boston isn’t as cowardly as the Islamo-pandering Swiss Courts.


Sheik Falah bin Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan

A Boston man who alleges that a brother of the ruler of the United Arab Emirates whipped him with a belt in a Swiss hotel bar has filed a $7 million defamation lawsuit, claiming that the sheik and his associates have made false statements about him and slandered him in the news media.

Sheik Falah bin Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan was fined for his alleged attack on Silvano Orsi, but a Swiss appeals court quashed his conviction of inflicting bodily harm with a dangerous object.

Orsi, who grew up in suburban Rochester, N.Y., alleges that the sheik hit him repeatedly with his steel-buckled belt after Orsi rejected his sexual advances and politely declined a bottle of champagne in a luxury hotel bar in Geneva. He said he sustained a herniated disk and nerve damage in his right leg in the 2003 attack.

In his lawsuit, Orsi, now a law student at Boston University, claims the sheik and his associates slandered him through false testimony and in statements made to news organizations. . . .

The lawsuit seeks $7 million in damages for emotional distress, loss of business, personal humiliation and mental anguish.

Al Nahyan is a brother of Sheik Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, who was appointed president of the United Arab Emirates in 2004 after the death of their father, Sheik Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan.

As you know, I’ve written plenty on this site about the Al-Nahyans, who are openly anti-Semitic and extremely barbaric.  Sheikh Khalifa’s brother Sheikh Issa, a complete animal, tortured a man nearly to death in a very sadistic manner, while playing music and videotaping it for his own enjoyment.  His brothers helped him get away with it.  The Al-Nahyan’s late father, Sheikh Zayed Al-Nahyan, established a center in his own name, the Zayed Center, which funded anti-Semitic, anti-Israel, and holocaust-denying speakers and publications, including one from an author who blamed the CIA and the Mossad for 9/11.

I hope that Orsi gets the millions he’s seeking from this vermin. He’s got a great Boston-based lawyer, Jerrold Neeff of the Bostonian Law Group.

Great Work again Debbie! Hope that guy whoops that Sheikh’s b*** and win the case.

The main obstacle to the lawsuit’s chances is the doctrine of state immunity.

And good luck with collecting on the claim even if the suit proceeds to trial and Silvano Orsi wins.

He may have to be content with a moral victory in federal court.

I would not be surprised if he frequents Afghanistan to “watch” the dancing boys (Frontline investigation which Debbie has commented and linked to on this site). More than likely he has his own version in the UAE that he attends regularly.

The Boston man sustained nerve damage. It can take a long time to heal nerve damage. My brother got shot several months ago and now has nerve damage in his leg and it may take years for him to fully recover. He worked in a hospital lifting heavy patients and now can only lift 20 pounds after months of physical therapy.

Surely there’s knowledge (at least suspicion) in his homeland that he’s gay. And yet he gets a pass because he’s royalty, unlike the typical Saudi subject who comes out and is subject to the death penalty!

Geez Debbie, your s___ting me ; a muslim prince who hates jews? You’re stretching my incredulity. Muslims love jews! That’s why they’re so many left in the middle east.

Not to forget that this family was/is in bed w/ Osama – in a different sense, not necessarily the above one – where some of their members were on hunting trips w/ Osama, which is why the CIA couldn’t bomb them out (this was pre 9/11). Not that it stops people from drooling over the Emirates Airlines, and Dubai and all those displays of opulence.

Can’t wait for the turmoil in Bahrein and Yemen to spill over here

Oh, and hope that Orsi wins his case, and that the Supreme Court doesn’t take it

This Al Nayan guy is a beast. Dr. Sami Al Raaba, an ex Muslim from Syria once wrote that this guy raped and beat the crap out of his smallish Filipino maid in Germany. The maid with the help of some Germans filed police report and sought assylum in Germany by the ass Gerhard Schroder’s government refused to help. The police report was quashed and the assylum was denied. Nobody knows what happend to the Filipino maid after that.

Rex on March 19, 2011 at 2:39 am

Dear Rex:

Could you please provide a link to a source or a news clip concerning Dr. Sami Al-Raaba’s article on Mr AL-Nahyan in Germany?

Are you sure that “Falah bin Zayed bin Sultan Al-Nahyan” was the UAE sheikh invovled in the “maid matter” in Germany tath you are referring to?

If so, that would be vital information on Mr Al-Nahyan’s “other known precedents” of violence that he may have committed in Europe and/or on western soil. Many thanks.

To Norman: the UAE barbarian Sheikh in question does not hold any official government position, and he is not immune from any legal procedings whatsoever. He has been publicly tried in criminal court for this crime in Geneva since 2006, and there is another civil lawsuit on-going for Orsi’s personal injuries and currently underway in Switzerland. The physical injuries occurred in Geneva, so they have jurisdiction over that aspect, and the defamation occurred in the U.S., via slanderous comments made to the US Media and according to the lawsuit, via contact to Orsi in the US, made by the sheikh’s associates, so the U.S. Courts will have jurisdiction over that end of the affair. The doctrine of sovreign immunity does not apply — this DING-BAT Sheikh is not a sovreign, not part of the UAE government, nor does he represent his nation in any official capacity. So let’s not afford or advance this cowardly little twirp of a sheikh any status that he does not have!

We need to make “new law” here 1. Any muslim found guilty of such offenses that they use religion to escape (also see Grand Rapids trial of two pig lovers that killed a older man for his bank account) will be neutered and left hand choped with a rusty but sharp blade (see quran about importance of hands) 2. All property of said individual will be given to injured party. All law implied will have nothing to do sharia rules but true rule of law. Parties found quilty will also adopt two large dogs and live their lives in humility serving pork-pull meals for those in need. Amen.

Do you have some more dezails to the case “AL-Nahyan in Germany”
..The police report was quashed…aped and beat the crap out of his smallish Filipino maid in Germany.
Which year was this .which city in Germany.. at which police station was the criminal complaint filed ?

marie on March 29, 2011 at 7:56 pm

I have known Sheikh Falah personally and I can confirm he is a violent thug. There is no doubt he did this to this man.
