From EB: Kentucky seeks to reform Guardianship laws that are not working.

https://www.seattletimes.com/nation-world/bill-to-update-guardianship-laws-cleared-senate-panel/

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — A bill aimed at easing the state’s growing burden as guardian of vulnerable elderly and disabled people moved a step closer to clearing the legislature Wednesday.

The measure, which seeks to ease the strain by ensuring that more relatives take on guardianship roles, won unanimous approval from the Senate Health and Welfare Committee, without any changes.

The bill goes next to the full Senate. The House approved it by a vote of 79-3 early this month.

It comes as the state struggles with growing caseloads of people who become wards of the state. The state is currently guardian for 4,448 wards, said Tim Feeley, deputy secretary of the Cabinet for Health and Family Services.

“We have a system where our guardianship program continues to grow and grow and grow, and we can’t keep up with it,” he told the committee.

State guardians are juggling caseloads…

DID FAMILY COURT JUDGE COMMIT PERJURY BY FAILING TO DISCLOSE $2.5 MILLION OF LOANS IN DEFAULT?

February 7, 2018

Clark County Family Court Judge Cynthia N. Giuliani was elected November 4, 2008, officially taking the bench on January 5, 2009. Judge Giuliani was re-elected to the Eighth Judicial District Family Court in 2014. Her current term expires in January 2021.

Less than a year after taking the bench on January 5, 2009, Judge Giuliani and her husband, local Attorney Roger A. Giuliani, filed a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy petition on December 31, 2009, in Federal Court. According to their bankruptcy filing, the couple owed $2,579,954.65 on real estate holds worth $1,980,500.00. Their real estate holdings took a major hit when the market crashed in 2008. Most, if not all, of the properties, had loans which exceed the values by…

From EB: Michigan changes laws regarding predatory Realtors who prey on Estate homes, but how little, how late?

MaryGSykes.com

EB sent me this article on how Michigan is changing laws so that Realtors cannot open Decedents Estates quick and sell homes on the cheap causing heirs to take huge losses on the sale of homes owned by their deceased loved ones.

But note in the news stories, the Michigan officials admit they received a stream of stories over just how many years?

And how does giving notice and changing a waiting period to sell homes from 42 days to 63 days really help anyone when you know probate is a fixed game and a fixed sale and profits are only accessible to cronies of the wealthy and powerful.

I vote this a red herring, but watch for yourself.

From CT: Cook County’s first elected Filipina judge goes on trial on mortgage fraud charges

MaryGSykes.com

http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/breaking/ct-met-judge-mortgage-fraud-trial-20180205-story.html

What promises to be a mundane mortgage fraud trial filled with dry testimony from bankers about decade-old financial documents drew a standing room-only crowd to a federal courtroom in Chicago on Tuesday morning.

The reason? The defendant is a judge herself.

Cook County Associate Judge Jessica Arong O’Brien is the first sitting judge in years to face a jury on criminal charges at the Dirksen U.S. Courthouse.

O’Brien, 50, was accused of orchestrating a $1.4 million mortgage fraud scheme stemming from the purchase of two South Side properties when she was a lawyer and real estate agent a decade ago — long before she became the first Filipina elected to the county bench.

If convicted, O’Brien, who was reassigned to administrative duties following her indictment last year, would by law be forced to step down from her judgeship.

In opening statements Tuesday before…
