How Steven Kazan and Alan Brayton Misappropriated Billions from Asbestos Trust Funds in 4 Simple Steps

The “Methods” of Corruption of 2 California Asbestos Lawyers

Every present and future victim of asbestos diseases will receive less money because of 2 very corrupt lawyers – Steven Kazan and Alan Brayton. Look in any Asbestos Trust By-Laws and Trust Distribution Procedures and you will find them. Collectively, Steven Kazan and Alan Brayton control nearly every Asbestos Trust in the Country (approximately 30 Trusts totaling nearly $30 BILLION dollars). They are “Fiduciaries” for the victims of asbestos diseases. But on each Trust, Kazan and Brayton breach that “Fiduciary Duty”. Insider dealing? Yes! Concealment of Asbestos Trust sites? Yes. Collusion? Yes. The net result? The misappropriation of BILLIONS of dollars to Kazan and Brayton.

An Example of Asbestos Trust Fraud and the Concealment of Documents – The G-I (GAF) Asbestos Settlement Trust

This a perfect example of Asbestos Trust Fraud and the Concealment of Documents – The G-I (GAF) Asbestos Settlement Trust!

The G-I Asbestos Settlement Trust (Verus LLC) has the Invoices of GAF and Ruberoid depicting decades of sales of asbestos products! They have them! Thousands and Thousands of invoices. But do the Beneficiaries get to see these asbestos liability documents….documents Verus has a “Fiduciary Duty to Produce to Beneficiaries? NO.

The G-I Asbestos Settlement Trust, its “Fiduciaries” are concealing them. Making matters worse for beneficiaries, the G-I Asbestos Settlement Trust is ONLY providing them “Favored Law Firms” (the “Double Dippers” such as Alan  Brayton and Steven Kazan). This is fraud! This is criminal concealment! This is a breach of Fiduciary duties.

So who is responsible?

  1. Verus LLC (supposed to be a Fiduciary): The lawyers involved: Robert Capritti, Dan Myer, Frances Gecker, Stephen Snyder — All Trustees of the Trust. All conspiring to conceal documents.
  2. Frances Gecker – Corrupt and Dishonest lawyer supposed to be a “Trustee” or “Fiduciary for the Trust” – Actively involved in the concealment.

So why would the G-I (GAF) Asbestos Settlement Trust Conceal Documents specifically to harm G-I Asbestos Settlement Trust Beneficiaries? 

The answers are simple!

  1. Misappropriate G-I Asbestos Settlement  Trust Funds to Alan Brayton and Steven Kazan (the “Kings of Asbestos Trust Corruption and famous “Double Dippers”
  2. Preserve G-I Asbestos Settlement Trust Funds so Verus LLC (Myer, Capritti, Kim Lavin) can misappropriate more  G-I (GAF) Beneficiary  Funds
  3. Deceive present and future Beneficiaries of the Asbestos Liabilities of G-I (GAF) to limit payments to the same
  4. So Alan Brayton and Steven Kazan can continue their pattern of Racketeering, Fraud and Bad Faith and theft of “billions” of Asbestos Victims Trust Funds

Below – you will find the e-mail from Verus LLC – finally responding to my 5th request for the G-I Trust documents! If the same request had been made by a “Favored Counsel” (such as Alan Brayton and Steven Kazan), the G-I invoices and liability documents (depicting decades of sales)  would have been immediately provided!

From Verus LLC – Bob Capritti on November 2, 2017

Michael:

In order to request  G-I Trust documents you will need to serve a valid subpoena on the G-I Trust following the proper legal procedures for service.   

Please be advised that Verus is not authorized to accept service of process on behalf of the G-I Trust.

EVERY TRUST! Every Trust in which Steven Kazan and  Alan Brayton are Fiduciaries, there is corruption taking place. Every one. Who loses? Asbestos Victims! While these ‘lawyers’ champion themselves as advocates for victims of asbestos disease, the “Truth” is that they have misappropriated BILLIONS of dollars from Asbestos Victims and that every present and future victim of asbestos disease will receive ‘less’ recovery because of the fraud of these two individuals. So how do they do it?

One method is crystal clear —

CONCEALMENT OF JOB SITES WHERE EVERY ASBESTOS COMPANY WAS PRESENT SO THAT CURRENT AND FUTURE VICTIMS OF ASBESTOS DISEASE CANNOT RECOVER THE TRUSTS

Verus LLC Fiduciary Bob Capritti – Costing Asbestos Victims Millions

One man is costing ASARCO Asbestos Trust victims millions of dollars. At the same time, this same individual is misappropriating millions and millions of ASARCO victims funds to himself and “favored” Law Firms (i.e. Brayton Purcell, Kazan McClain…). This is some of the most egregious (criminal) examples of bankruptcy fraud in history. Ignorant? Yes. Acting in Bad Faith? Yes. Imbecilic? Without question! So who is the man behind the ASARCO Asbestos Bankruptcy Trust Fraud?  The Department of Justice rules say he’s supposed to a “Fiduciary” – someone who operates with the “highest level” of duty and good faith. But these rules mean nothing to him! He’s a complete fraud.

That man is Bob Capritti — Attorney, Fiduciary, and ASARCO Asbestos Trust Representative.

For nearly 2 decades, through various scams, hoaxes, concealment and just plain extortion, Capritti has overseen various Asbestos Trusts, including the ASARCO Asbestos Trust. ASARCO supplied and sold asbestos fiber to a number of former “Fortune 500 Companies,” including Johns Manville, General Motors, and Owens Corning, as well as other Nationwide “specialized” asbestos companies, including Garlock Gaskets.

Capritti, a former asbestos defense lawyer for a dozen companies, has been provided this information in the form of depositions, invoices and Corporate Interrogatories. What did he do with the information? Concealment! Why? So actual ASARCO victims DO NOT get paid, while favored Counsel and Law Firms such as Kazan McClain and Brayton Purcell do. The clear and fraudulent concealed Garlock evidence (hence, ASARCO since they supplied the asbestos fiber) will be attached to this posting – or at least a portion of the hundreds of thousands of pages.

Over 100 ASARCO Asbestos Victims have perfected claims with the ASARCO Asbestos Trust and are not getting paid while favored counsel (the biggest frauds on earth) and Capritti continue to misappropriate Trust victims.

The worst fraud of Capritti – complete ignorance  – was first discovered on October 11, 2017 when a number of ASARCO asbestos victims, after waiting years for claims reviews, had their requests for Arbitration and Mediation fraudulent denied by Capritti.  Capritti indicated that the claimants did not have a “cognizable and valid” claim despite each’s diagnosis of an asbestos disease AND exposure to Garlock asbestos products.

Capritti’s actual e-mail is copied verbatim below – Could he be more of a fraud??

A review of these claims fails to provide any proof of exposure to an “ASARCO” asbestos-containing product. Without some evidence of proof of “ASARCO” exposure, these claims would not be deemed to be valid and cognizable in the tort system. As you are aware, the TDP states that –Claims involving Disease Levels I–V, VII and VIII that do not meet the presumptiveMedical/Exposure Criteria for the relevant Disease Level may undergo the Asbestos Trust’s Individual Review Process described in Section 5.3(b). In such a case, notwithstanding that the claim does not meet the presumptive Medical/Exposure Criteria for the relevant Disease Level, the Asbestos Trust may offer the claimant an amount up to the Scheduled Value of that Disease Level if the Asbestos Trust is satisfied that the claimant has presented a claim that would be cognizable and valid in the tort system.

 On the basis of the foregoing, these claims are not currently eligible for a 2.2 review.

The Mandelbrot Law Firm’s Response to the Fraud Bob Capritti –

Bob,

I would say that without question, your responsive e-mail below exemplifies an active ignorance on your part to the point of criminal fraud. No human, yet alone an attorney, can be that unintelligent, nonsensical, and just plain dumb.
You are consciously aware that many of the claims below were “cognizable and valid in the tort system” because there were 3rd party cases “in the tort system” which in fact were “recognized in the tort system”, settled by solvent defendants “in the tort system”, and resolved with a number of Verus Trusts which clearly recognized that these claimants had claims “cognizable and valid in the tort system”. 
Or are you “from a defense attorney” point of view saying that “at Trial”, you couldn’t prove Garlock PID..? This is not the standard of review and even if it were, this could not be more false. I’ve now provided you Mare Island Naval Shipyard depos (and uploaded them with many claims) which describe the use of Garlock gaskets is the shipyard (as well as Kaylo – which you use fraud to deny)….This is the ‘exact PID’ that every Trust requests to add sites and in fact, other Trusts (including Verus Trusts) have added sites based on the depositions I provided.
Every one of these claims would have been filed against ASARCO in the tort system as a cognizable and valid case which ASARCO would have settled if ASARCO were solvent. While some of the 3rd party handling attorneys did not name ASARCO in the 3rd party cases is solely because those attorney were not fully aware of ASARCO expansive asbestos liabilities.
To further the Claimant’s position, the Claimants can ‘prove’ at your request that every one of these Claimants also has a valid and cognizable tort system claim AND a current Asbestos Trust bankruptcy filing with “Garlock”. In fact, I can provide the Garlock filings (which = ASARCO during certain years) of every Firm in the Country (including your favored buddy attorneys) which further the point of Garlock exposures in every shipyard and on every Navy ship (something I expect you know well!).
Look for the Headline – “ASARCO Asbestos Trust Fraud – Verus LLC Fiduciary Bob Capritti’s Bad Faith Harms Asbestos Victims”….
Next to the Western Asbestos billion dollar default fraud (by Kazan and Brayton) – this may be the biggest Asbestos Trust fraud and bad faith in history. Especially since you paid all of Brayton’s claim pre-petition. 
So what are these wrongful death victims options at this point who clearly have provided a valid and cognizable claim with ASARCO?
We still await a response.
To Contact this Fraud to let him know that his Conduct is Harming Millions of Asbestos Victims –

The Corrupt Women of Asbestos Litigation – Bad Lawyers/Worse People

There is over $30 Billion Dollars set aside for victims of asbestos diseases. But who oversees that money? Who decides which claimants/beneficiaries actually get compensated? Everyone talks about the “Trustees” or “Fiduciaries” (typically male)…..but they can’t do it alone. They need help to commit such massive fraud. Individuals with criminal intent and bad motives who will willingly engage in fraud if it benefits them. So what do these Trustees and Fiduciaries do? They fill the roles with “Corrupt Women Lawyers” and pay them well. The Appearance: “…these are esteemed female lawyers who have ‘broken the glass ceiling’…..”

Note from Michael Mandelbrot regarding successful Appeal against Thorpe Trusts –

This was a long time coming! It’s been decades of bad faith and corruption by the J.T. Thorpe, Inc. (jttstrust.com) Settlement Trust Fiduciaries and Thorpe Insulation Settlement Trust Fiduciaries (www.tistrust.com). My office was only sued for exposing this corruption and misappropriation of funds by these Fiduciaries. Everyone knows I have never filed an unreliable claim and in fact, my office files the most thorough and reliable claims in the Country. These fraudsters tried to wipe out the “Whistleblower” (me) through a sham lawsuits, sham audits, judicial bias, and bad faith — while misappropriating millions of dollars of victims funds in the process (Gary Fergus, attorney in California ‘stole’ millions). This victory in the Appeal of the bad faith lawsuit me is one step towards justice. Justice for me. Justice for my office. Justice for my family. And justice for all victims of asbestos diseases.

The pack of fraudsters and co-conspirators who run these Trusts, including Trust Fiduciaries Alan Brayton, Sara Beth Brown, Gary Fergus, Stephen Snyder, and David McClain have misappropriated nearly a billion dollars from Thorpe, Western and J.T. Thorpe Trust Beneficiaries, while breaching their duty to these same Beneficiaries. Here are examples of mass Trust Fraud and Misappropriations by the “Fiduciaries” who sued me:

Opinion/Editorial

Bernie Madoff/Steven Kazan — Steven Kazan/Bernie Madoff.

The comparisons are undeniable. Both misappropriated billions of dollars. Both enriched friends/family at the expense of victims. Both held themselves out “pioneers” while committing vast fraud. Both will leave a legacy of fraud and bad faith impacting tens of  thousands of victims solely to enrich themselves. Unfortunately, only one of them is in jail. Madoff. The other (Kazan) continues to misappropriate funds from asbestos claimant. The difference? In every Asbestos Trust Kazan inserts a “License to Commit Fraud” thus allowing him to continue his wrath of dishonesty (i.e. …“No Asbestos Claimants’ Representative are to have or incur any liability to any Entity for any act or omissions arising out of the Chapter 11 cases or during the entirety of the Chapter 11 cases). 2 Criminals (although only one has been convicted – Madoff) – 2 “Losers” – 2 of the biggest fund frauds in history – 2 very bad individuals.

THE PIONEERS OF ASBESTOS TRUST FRAUD AND MISAPPROPRIATION

For decades, lawyers Steven Kazan, Alan Brayton, and David McClain have held themselves as “Pioneers” of Asbestos Litigation. The reality is – They are the “Pioneers of Asbestos Trust Fraud”. Billions (yes, billions) of dollars set aside for victims of asbestos have been misappropriated by these 3.
