That has to do with a dispute that took place between Kehot and Rabbi Mindel (and his family) who worked on the translation

Unreal how low people could go! The חוצפה to write that she was hit by the Bochur. As I was the first one from Hatzolah to be there, I heard from her myself what happened. She herself told me and Doctor Feldman obm that she heard a knock on the door. She was sure it’s one of the boys who used to help her. As soon as she opened the door she saw a face she didn’t recognize, she started closing the door and he pushed the door open and it ended up hitting her face. The Bochur left immediately.… Read more »

In honor and legacy of Beis Horav and Lubavitch is Agudas Chasidei

Chabad taking legal action in this matter? shouldn’t this come to an end in a

responsible and respectful way once and for all?!

as the expression in Yiddish: עס איז א הימל געשריי

By writing articles and spreading the word, we’ll be able to take credibility away from Deutsch and the Auction house will have to take it down, without any legal situation.
This is probably the most respectful and peaceful way to do it.

What legal action could they take?

According to this COLlive article the items are not authentic, so the only ones who could sue would be the people who bought them. Even if the items were authentic, there is no claim that they belong to Aguch and no reason they would belong to it. Either they genuinely belonged to Chana and Deutsch stole them from her, or she gave them to him but didn’t write the notes so he did that and forged her signature, or else they belong to various people and someone stole them. There doesn’t seem to be any reasonable scenario in which they… Read more »

Kedem is writing in their own defense. They represent the seller, so their name is on the line. I’m not a Chabad Chassid so I am not familiar with the facts at hand, but it’s obvious that some items aren’t what they are as described. The current Kedem Auction features a hat allegedly worn by the Rashab, along with a photograph included in the description. It does not take an expert to realize that the hat actually worn by the Rashab and the hat offered for sale, is entirely different. In fact, they aren’t remotely close. As such, I find… Read more »

Of course they’re defending him. They’re selling the items, so they need his authentication to be genuine.

Well written and well thought out article
