Real Estate Urban Dictionary: “Feibush,” “Feibushy”

Over at reddit/philadelphia, user alphadoodledoo responded to a Daily News article about the recent vandalism of OCF Coffee Shop in Point Breeze. Two windows were broken in the early morning hours before a protest march was planned, in part, against OCF and its owner Ori Feibush.  In the Daily News piece, Feibush said he was “100 percent certain” the damage to the shop had been done by a member of the group leading the march. “The idea that it’s not is almost laughable,” he said.

Saturday was the Point Breeze Organizing Committee’s march against OCF Realty, and as you’ll see from our photos, which we’ll have up soon, it was very peaceful.

Point Breeze Organizing Committee (PBOC), the group that believes that developer Ori Feibush and his company, OCF Realty, is trying to take over the neighborhood, now alleges Feibush has falsely attributed moronic written remarks to Gary Broderick, one of the group’s de facto leaders. They say Feibush did this by creating fake Facebook chats with Broderick and then showed them to others. The group then created a strike-back video in which an organizer reads a Cease and Desist letter articulating Feibush’s alleged misdeeds.

Of course, the video isn’t exactly standard legal practice. So Broderick has also sent out a letter looking for legal help, which made its way to the desk of ACLU staff attorney Mary Catherine Roper. She then forwarded it to a list of “fellow NLGers” (members of the National Lawyers Guild of Philadelphia ) saying, “If you can help Gary, please contact him.”

The letter is below and was originally published on philadelinquency:
