UPDATED FEBRUARY 2018 – The Corruption and Fraud by Trust Fiduciaries (Alan Brayton/Steven Kazan et al) has only gotten worse!!
Opinion based on 20 years of filing Asbestos Trust Claims – See full blog post on this topic – Updated 2018 (and as circumstances change)
The Asbestos Trust Mafia
Alan Brayton – Harvey Weinstein. The comparisons are undeniable. How do I know? I saw it from the inside from the years 1994 to 1999. I worked at Alan Brayton’s office and knew him well. Disgusting, despicable, and used intimidation to harass sexually.
Like with Harvey Weinstein’s companies, at Brayton Purcell – Sexual harassment and intimidation were the norm. The leader – Alan Brayton. I observed it on many, many occasions. Everyone knew to avoid the ‘corner’ office after 3-4 p.m. because that’s when the alcohol flowed the sexual harassment began. It was perverse, and deviant. Example of what I personally witnessed or am aware of:
- A drunk Alan Brayton cornering a 19 year old female multiple times in a sexual and perverse manner.
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.

ASARCO Documents Concealed by Bob Capritti and Verus LLC
There is so much more.
It also has to be noted – that the individual’s ‘behind the fraud’ are Asbestos Claimant’s Committee Members Steven Kazan and Alan Brayton – the most corrupt attorneys in the Country
And don’t forget his “right hand man” – Alan Brayton – The Billion Dollar Asbestos Trust Thief

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’…..”
Update October 2017: Nothing has changed since the original publishing. The site list for this Trust is a complete “sham” with Fiduciaries “concealing” thousands of thousands of known Unibestos sites and ships! The Goal of the Corrupt Fiduciaries: To steer as much of the Asbestos Victims PCC Trust Fund to themselves and co-conspirators. Attorneys Tom Florence, Alan Brayton and Steven Kazan and behind this mass fraud.
