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.

PETER D’APICE – ONE CORRUPT ASBESTOS TRUST FIDUCIARY AND LAWYER!

It’s rare you ‘find’ a lawyer who lies, operates openly with conflicts of interest, misappropriates funds from Trusts to meet his ‘billing requirements’ and engages in racketeering and fraud to harm the beneficiaries he is paid to protect…Let me introduce you to the face of fraud –  Peter D’Apice from Law Firm of Stutzman Bromberg Esserman Plifka.

If you are one of the thousands of victims of asbestos disease who is not being compensated by Asbestos Trusts – this “enabler” of corruption is why….

UPDATE 4/26/2016 – No sightings of this lawyer in asbestos litigation since the start of 2016. One can only hope this lying lawyer has nothing to do with the  Pittsburgh Corning Trust. However, I suspect this Trust will be golden parachute for the next 20 years. This would be very bad for asbestos victims.

UPDATE – 12/16/2016 – Jennifer Morales continues to engage in extensive fraud and bad faith. While she may tout herself as a “Partner” and an “Established Lawyer”, she is someone who has ‘earned her stripes’ by enabling fraud and harming the victims of asbestos diseases by misappropriating monies (her extensive billings, favoring lawyers), lying to Trustees and through bad faith. And for those who know this individual personally (whether family, friends – if she has any, school mates, Country Club buddies or otherwise), Morales is a bad lawyer, a fraud and if you really knew the misconduct she engaged in, you’d think so too…. And for my hundreds of clients/claimants who want more details on the specific fraud engaged in by Morales and how it’s harmed you, please contact me at anytime.

For those local to Morales, please note her strong ties as well other corrupt local lawyers Karen Campbell Levine and (especially – the biggest liar) Marla Eskin.

UPDATE 2/2016 – The fraud, racketeering and bad faith of Kathleen Campbell Davis continues. Not only is she misappropriating funds from the General Motors Asbestos Trust (improper billings), her suspension of thousands of valid claims (solely to harm a lawyer) is corrupt, a clear breach of her fiduciary duties and solely designed to harm beneficiaries she bills the Trust to protect. Campbell Davis remains one of the most despicable attorneys in the Country.

 Asbestos Trust Lawyer – Kathleen Campbell Davis (Campbell and Levine) – Racketeer – Fraud – Liar

If you have filed a claim with the General Motors (MLC) Trust or A.P. Green Trust – watch out – the lawyer overseeing this Trust is one of the most dishonest in the Country.

The Asbestos Factbook – 1944.pdf

Sure – many know that insulation materials contained asbestos. But did you know automobile floorboards contained asbestos? How about movie curtains? Christmas Tree flock? Baking Sheets? Yes to all of them.

“The Asbestos Fact Book published in 1944 is one of best lists of asbestos products I’ve seen and a great article for anyone who wants to learn about asbestos” said noted asbestos lawyer Michael J. Mandelbrot. “We now know these products cause mesothelioma, lung cancer and other disabling diseases and many companies have hid information on their utilization of asbestos. But this list of uses in the Asbestos Factbook came out before the public learned on the dangers and is one of the most comprehensive list I’ve seen.”
