Final Objection - Manville.pdf

On July 13, 2014, the Mandelbrot Law Firm filed an Objection Reply to the Trustees Accounting which displays extensive fraud and favoritism at the Manville Trust -- and potentially criminal conduct as well.

"The Trustees, Fiduciaries (Steven Kazan), and the General Counsel Jared Garelick have concealed Manville Trust fraud for years and are using me as their scapegoat. The concealment of fraud under Chapter 11 rules sure seems like Trustee criminal conduct to me, " said Mandelbrot. Exhibit D - Dept. of Justice Trustee Handbook - select portions.pdf
"Alan Brayton ( filed claims with the Manville Trust which were described as fictional and fraud and the Trustees and Counsel Garelick conceal the information. My office, which has provided information which led to the arrest and felony conviction of an individual (John Lynch) filing false Manville claims, is the most reliable in the Country, has never filed an unreliable claims and we are suspended from filing claims? Clearly there is collusion, bad faith, favoritism and fraud taking place." said Mandelbrot.
A Hearing is set for July 16, 2015 - at 10:00 A.M- United States Bankruptcy Court, Southern District of New York, Alexander Hamilton Custom House, One Bowling Green, New York, New York 10004-1408 before Cecelia G. Morris, United States Bankruptcy Judge.
Mandelbrot concluded, "I sure hope Judge Morris can 'see through' the Trustee and Garelick's lies to the Court and puts a stop to the bad faith that has been taking place at this Trust for nearly a decade."

November is Lung Cancer Awareness Month

Lung Cancer Awareness Month!

November is the month to raise lung cancer awareness to all! Although we may not all know someone with lung cancer, it is a disease that is affecting many today, and the more we know about it, the more support we can be for those who need it.

The Lung Cancer movement began in 1995; people began to raise awareness because the disease was becoming more well-known and more prominent. More people die from lung cancer in the United States than any other cancer, and this is true for both men and women. Here are what some recent statistics state:

In 2008:

* 208,493 people in the United States were diagnosed with lung cancer, including 111,886 men and 96,607 women.

*158,592 people in the United States died from lung cancer, including 88,541 men and 70,051 women.

Are you concerned about lung cancer?

There are several main risk factors that contribute to lung cancer, or increase your risk.
Those main contributing factors are:
*Smoking tobacco
*Radon exposure
*Asbestos exposure
*Regular exposure to second-hand smoke
*Military Service (Agent Orange exposure)
*Environmental exposure/ Industrial chemicals
*Health related issues
*Family history

Exposure to Asbestos can increase the likelihood of contracting lung disease. The Mandelbrot Law Firm/Asbestos Legal Center can help to bring some compensation to you or your loved ones. Common jobs/places one may contract asbestos are: shipyards, Military, Navy, insulators, carpenters, sheet metal workers, etc.

If you or someone you know feels you may have lung cancer, specifically from expose to asbestos, contact the Mandelbrot Law Firm/Asbestos Legal Center and we may be able to help you.
