The lawyer for a man badly burned during an alleged arson attempt in a New York hasidic village is asking the U.S. Department of Justice to investigate the incident as a hate crime. The May 22 attack in the village of New Square was "evocative of the Ku Klux Klan and Nazi Germany," wrote lawyer Michael Sussman in a letter sent last week to Attorney General Eric Holder, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and state Attorney General Eric Schneiderman.
