From FB–Is the California State Bar burning documents and covering felonies by Cal. lawyers?

MaryGSykes.com

Note: while I find this to be an interesting post, it does not differentiate between the Cal. Bar Assn, which is essentially a social club and the Cal. attorney disciplinary and registration agency.  I have asked the website for more clarification and to publish all the documents it relies upon in making the allegations.

Eight people are dead after Hurricane Irma knocked out air conditioning at a nursing home in Hollywood, Florida, according to ABC affiliate WPLG.

While the causes of their deaths were not immediately clear, the facility, Rehabilitation Center at Hollywood Hills, evacuated all its residents to hospitals because of the cooling problem.

Most of the patients were treated for respiratory distress, dehydration and heat-related issues, officials said.

Officials said 18 additional patients from an adjoining facility were also relocated because of the investigation, though those patients were “not medically compromised.”

Dr. Randy Katz, director of emergency services at Memorial Regional Hospital, which is next to the nursing home but is not affiliated with the nursing home, alleged there were extremely hot temperatures on the nursing home’s second floor.

ALERT

Last night I had a telephone call from a lady who informed me that her mother was hauled before Judge Quinn, in the Probate Division of the Circuit Court of Cook County, Illinois, by officials of a nursing home as an emergency.    It seems that the ‘good judge’ was requested to appoint a guardian for her mother so that mother could be placed in hospice!     According to the caller, this was accomplished virtually in secret and despite pleads from family, mother was denied food and basics of life until she died.    Complaints to Judge Quinn were rebuffed.     (The complainant has averred – and we have not verified –  that the nursing home operation involved is not only…

From BTR/MO: Mass murder in Montgomery County, Penn. in Probate and the authorities look the other way

This is a show you do not want to miss!

Pennsylvania appears to be about to exceed Florida and Tennessee in its abuse of the elderly by corrupt probate courts, for-profit guardians, unethical attorney’s and their constant companions…the participating nursing homes. In what has to be one of the most extreme cases of probate abuse with the intent to exploit the estate, Harvey Whitten is that case.  Highly educated and successful, Harvey became a prime target for the predators in Montgomery County, PA due to a stroke.  Harvey never had a chance to recover.

F. Harvey Whitten who suffers from vascular dementia, is being chemically restrained with Haldol.  This was done without the family’s knowledge.  Haldol is not appropriate for use on those over 60, nor those with dementia.  F. Harvey Whitten is a veteran of the Korean War, and…

From Ken Ditkowsky–Articles which must be remembered–Dr. Borasi’s cash for patients scheme

MaryGSykes.com

Some Articles must be remembered and never forgotten.  The following is one of those articles, to wit:

Cashing in on frail patients

Rock Creek Center in Lemont
David Jackson and Gary Marx, Tribune reporters

Dr. Roland Borrasi chuckled as he told three doctors how he used kickbacks and cash bribes to shuttle unsuspecting nursing home residents into Chicago-area hospitals and psychiatric wards.

Basically, I have a commodity; my commodity is nursing home patients,” Borrasi explained.

He didn’t know it at the time, but federal agents were secretly recording that meeting.

One of the doctors was wearing a wire as Borrasi matter-of-factly explained the mechanics of patient brokering to physicians in his medical group.

Those recordings, along with court documents and federal investigative reports obtained by the Tribune, describe a web of corruption in which hundreds of thousands of dollars flowed…

From PA–Judge rejects over $1 million in attorneys fees on $125k claim

Judge denies ‘exorbitant’ request for nearly $1M in attorney fees after $125K recovery

A federal judge in Pennsylvania has denied a request for nearly $1 million in attorney fees and promised to refer the lawyers who sought the money to ethics regulators.

U.S. District Judge Malachy Mannion of Scranton deemed the fee request “astounding,” “exorbitant” and “woefully deficient.” He criticized claims for various portions of work as “abusively excessive” and “mind-boggling.” Some entries were redundant and some were vague, he said. The Legal Intelligencer (sub. req.), the Scranton Times-Tribune and the Associated Presshave stories; Mannion’s Aug. 29 opinion is here.

“As other courts have noted,” Mannion said, quoting from another opinion, “a fee request is not the opening salvo in a back and forth negotiation with the court. The request is not the sticker price on a used car that all…

From MKF–Missouri man placed in group home is found dead in storage locker and was likely dead for months.

MaryGSykes.com

Apparently the family was isolated from this man and finally when someone tipped off cops there was a dead body in a storage locker left there for months, it was determined the man had been living in a group home for the disabled.

This is just another example of how judges and lawyers are not doing their jobs and every guardianship court sorely needs an oversight committee that takes complaints from family members, ensures the disabled are being protected and safe and can go home if they want to, and no lawyers are churning the heck out of any accounts placed in their trust and control.
