“The Dirty 30” 

30 Asbestos Bankruptcy Trust Lawyers Engaging in Fraud, Collusion, Breach of Trust, and Misappropriation of Trust Funds

They are all guilty. Every one of them. Collusion, Breach of Trust, Theft of Trust Funds (Billions), Favoritism and Fraud….and that’s just a start.

Each solely has one goal in mind – Misappropriate $$$$$$$$$  from Asbestos Trust Funds — the 60 Billion Dollars for asbestos victims (which is now about 25 Billion due to these ‘criminals)… And misappropriate they have… least 10 BILLION DOLLARS. At least.

All monies that should have gone to victims has gone in these lawyers (and a few Judges and former Judges) pockets.

Some even paint themselves as ‘victims advocates’ (i.e. Steven Kazan, Alan Brayton…)….but they are far from it – These criminals are “Traitors” to asbestos victims who have stolen hundreds of billions from victims. Every asbestos victim gets less money because of these lawyers. Every single one!

Remember, the Dirty 30 has one goal in mind….to line their pockets with as much money from Asbestos Trust Funds as they can…These are greedy and dishonest lawyers — each who has breached their Fiduciary and Ethical Duties and  have collectively misappropriated and assisted in the misappropriation of at least One Billion Dollars from Asbestos Trust funds.

Clearly, the Justice Department knows the corruption taking place. For the first time in history, they have intervened in a ‘billion dollar’ Trust Fund (Georgia Pacific/Bestwall) – Justice Department Bankruptcy Court Filing – Bestwall – December 28, 2020Justice Department – Statement of Interest – Bestwall Bankruptcy – December 2020

But will the Department actually do anything remains to be seen….
