How do you end up with a label like Most Dangerous Woman on the Internet? Got me, I am not sure I am even the most dangerous person in this room…and I live here alone.

Seema Kalia won the moniker by exposing corruption at Trinity School, a three hundred year old private school in the heart of New York City…well, an area of New York City anyway. After blowing the whistle on trustee fraud, she was dismissed as an “unhinged housewife” by one of the defendants, damaging her career and affecting her personal life. As she sets herself to take on the trustees, their law firm and various news websites defaming her name, Wachtell and the other parties under investigation have used her divorce proceedings to strike back in the most despicable manner possible.

What do you do to piss off The Most Dangerous Woman on the Internet? You abuse your power and authority to take her children away from her for the better part of a year.


If my heart wasn’t already clogged full of pastrami, it would be breaking right now.

What do you do to piss off The Rancid Monke? Screw with people’s lives and hurt children. Which is why I am lending my voice and blog (which is usually not this high brow) to get the word out.

Below are some juicy public documents pertaining to the proceedings in which opposing counsel asked 125 questions about the federal investigation into Wachtell Lipton, Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance Jr. and Trinity School. Only 3 questions were asked pertaining to her children during the entire DIVORCE trail (masters of subtlety these people are not). Some of the pertinent information in the court transcripts have been highlighted in case you aren’t the sort of person who enjoys slogging through long, dull court proceedings. Actually, I would be more concerned if you were the sort of person who enjoys slogging through long, dull court proceedings. You should probably get outside more.

Folks, if you are only going to become enraged over one abuse of power and injustice this year, let it be this one (because I worked really hard on writing it, I had to use a Thesaurus and everything).

It’s worth noting that after dragging the private school through legal infamy, Wachtell Lipton’s main partner, Martin Lipton is at the centre of a controversy about board governance issues at the storied New York University. Lipton is the Chairman of the Board at NYU, and together with his hand picked President, John Sexton, is trying to push through a large list of aggressive commercial changes at the university. After five NYU faculties recently had a no confidence vote in Sexton, Lipton refused to listen.

A group of over 400 NYU professors has demanded that Lipton step down as Chairman of the Board, which is something that (as far as I know) has never happened at a US university.

The final besmirched end of the Trinity School mascot.

An update, but not a particularly happy one:

  1. Bernard Keogh says:

    This is exactly the sort of thing thats buggering up America and by extension buggering up the world. What ‘truth and justice’ is there in separating a mother from her kids in retaliation for something entirely unrelated? HOW does a COURT of the land end up as a tool of the corrupt? Something is VERY wrong here. Shame on Trinity, shame on Wachtell, shame on that judge and shame on a system that allows such lunacy to happen.

    Outrageous! I am so sorry for this woman.

  4. […] Kalia’s story is being shared across the web. This article includes links to official court documents lending credence to Kalia’s accusations, as well […]

  5. fuzzywuzzy says:

    even the guards seem to feel bad for when I asked for a way to send her a card when she was atrikers

  6. […] My previous post, for those of you that just joined this scandal already in progress. – https://rancidmonke.com/2013/08/27/wachtell-lipto…in-nyu-scandal/ […]
