Aharon Rottenberg, who was the victim of an arson attack, has filed an $18 million lawsuit. Rottenberg claims a campaign of intimidation was orchestrated that led to the arson attack that burned half of his body. He says he was targeted.
Rottenberg is being represented by civil-rights attorney Michael Sussman.
An 18-year-old was arrested for allegedly burning Rottenberg.
Doctors say Rottenberg may be able to be released from Westchester Medical Center sometime this week.
