Chasidic Man Suing Jimmy Kimmel

12/17/2010

(JTA) -- A Chasidic man from Brooklyn is suing talk show host Jimmy Kimmel.

Dovid Sondik of the Borough Park section filed a lawsuit Wednesday in Brooklyn Supreme Court over Kimmel's use of a YouTube video featuring Sondik in a skit spoofing basketball star LeBron James, the New York Post reported.

The video titled the "Flying Rabbi," though Sondik is not a rabbi, shows Sondik talking about the Bible in Yiddish and is spliced with video of James -- making it look as if the basketball star is receiving advice from Sondick.
