A misappropriation of victims funds took place in grand proportion on December 12, 2017. A simple hearing took place before Judge Sheri Bluebond where no more than one lawyer is needed.

So how many did the Thorpe Insulation and J.T. Thorpe Settlement Trusts send? – 10 Lawyers!

Yes – 10 lawyers were sent by the Thorpe Insulation and the J.T. Thorpe, Inc. Settlement Trust for a 15 min hearing!! A gross misappropriation of funds by a pack of frauds. 7 in Courtroom – 3 on the telephone.  The Thorpe Trusts needed one lawyerthey sent 10!

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


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.

Editors Note: 10/19/2017 – Jason Rubinstein fails to get this Blog Post Removed – Without ever contacting the Mandelbrot Law Firm or Michael Mandelbrot, corrupt New York Lawyer attempted to get this post removed.  Using his Firm’s authority and Manville Trust Funds (since we know he ‘billed’ for his time), Rubinstein wrote a letter to my website provider attaching the below post and many other of my blog posts and requesting the provider remove this blog. I look forward to posting the letter!

Apparently, the “Harvard trained” Rubinstein forgot about the 1st Amendment, “Fair use”, and didn’t like the truth being told. Simply put, Jason Rubinstein’s conduct, actions, bad faith and misrepresentations have cost thousands of asbestos victims. Not only is Rubinstein misappropriating Manville Trust funds (under Garelick’s direction) through ‘sham’ and excessive billings, but those very billings are solely to harm thousands more present and future victims of the Manville Trust (represented by me). Knowing that I have never filed an unreliable claim with any Trust (yet alone Manville where my office successfully filed hundreds of claims), the loser Rubinstein continues to misrepresent facts about my office’s claim filings solely to harm asbestos victims and my office. Rubinstein KNOWS he’s engaging in racketeering, fraud, and the misappropriating of Trust funds (solely to further Kazan and Brayton fraud and bad faith), but seemingly has no ethics. A completely disgraceful lawyer — Jason Rubinstein.

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. ( Settlement Trust Fiduciaries and Thorpe Insulation Settlement Trust Fiduciaries ( 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:

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.

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.
