ORA Incident Police Report

We have posted below two pages from an actual Ramapo, New York Police Department report regarding an alleged incident involving a Jewish husband ( in a divorce process ) and Josh Ross, an activist from the YU based ORA group ( the Organization for the Resolution of Agunot ).

Note that on the bottom page the police report describes how the Jewish husband’s manager (employer) was allegedly contacted by Ross in regard to a GET ( Jewish divorce ) matter. Our understanding is that financial coercion invalidates a Jewish GET according to normative halacha ( Jewish law ).  If so, then any GET the wife would have received through ORA’s pressure on the husband’s employer would be invalid, and the wife would remain married. So who is really causing the so-called “agunot”?
