There is a silent epidemic in this country claiming the lives and property of untold numbers of innocent elderly and disabled Americans. It has nothing to do with exotic viruses. In fact, it’s a homegrown phenomenon involving corrupt elected officials, judges and lawyers.

The deadly disease running rampant in our court system is probate and guardianship abuse.

This week, the granddaughter of the late iconic singer and songwriter Nina Simone blew the whistle on Vice President Kamala Harris’ alleged role in a scheme where the entertainer’s estate “was taken away from us” after she died in France in 2003. The battle stretched out over 15 years and was reportedly helmed by Harris while she served as California’s attorney general between 2011-2017. In a two-part series of shocking tweets, ReAnna Simone Kelly laid out her family’s claims about how Harris “threatened my mother Lisa Simone with jail time before the case was underway if my mom didn’t resign as the Administrator and Trustee of the estate.”

Simone Kelly alleged that Harris, who had no legal jurisdiction over Simone’s estate overseas, “put out stories about funds being misappropriated which of course, turned out to be totally false as the money she was talking about was used to pay attorneys, accountants and to protect and run the estate.” Eventually, the granddaughter recounted, “the law firm that we initially sued for wrongfully filing the estate in the US probate system, in the end, wound up settling with us for a few million dollars.”

Simone Kelly wants answers and is urging people in power (that includes you, fellow journalists!) to “ask Kamala Harris why she came for my family … Ask her why she separated my family … Ask her why we as her family no longer own the rights to anything. Ask her why she bullied my mother in court and my mom almost killed herself from the depression.”

If this all sounds bewildering and unimaginable, you haven’t been paying attention. Across the country, judges, prosecutors and other legal cronies have been entangled in nightmare cases involving elderly and disabled citizens who’ve been stripped of their homes, physically and mentally abused, defrauded and often left to die, according to their families.

ORDER IT NOW

“All across America,” California nurse and activist Patricia Lacy told me, “vulnerable elders are being placed under fraudulent guardian and conservatorships in an effort to obtain a senior’s life savings, property and removal of all their civil rights. They are not even allowed to hire their own attorney but are given a court-appointed attorney, who works in partnership with the opposing party. The guardians, who are supposed to be serving the best interest of the senior, instead use the elder’s money to fight against their advanced directives or wishes. The result is usually the elders losing their homes and being placed in lockdown facilities. If a family member complains, the guardianship playbook calls for a court hearing to claim that the family member is ‘interfering’ and they are then isolated from their loved one.”

Lacy is a member of the National Association to Stop Guardianship Abuse. Her beloved father, Stan Zurko, died at the age of 102 last year after a horrific struggle with a public guardian who separated him from family, hid legal documents from him, and withheld medication and living expenses. Lacy sought help from local and county officials in Ventura County, California, who turned a deaf ear and blind eye. Zurko died in May 2020, barred from moving in with his daughter, and gave up “out of despair that no one would hear him or help him,” Lacy said. “He lost his will to live with so many people in court physically, emotionally and financially harming him, until he just gave up and took his last breath.”

The family’s plight is still not over. Zurko’s assets have been liquidated by the conservators, and Lacy is saddled with $250,000 in legal bills. The allegation that Harris threatened Nina Simone’s family in the battle over her estate will be very familiar to other families who have faced similar intimidation by the Probate Predator Mafia.

“Many family members have been put in jail under false pretenses just to shut them up. My funds are depleted from paying all the expenses and attorneys’ fees. I have all the documents and validation of the abuse to my father, but I can’t hire an attorney with no funds,” Lacy told me. “This is exactly what these predators do — deplete the family of all funds so they will not be sued.”

The system is rigged. Vulnerable victims have little recourse against a cabal of ruthless thieves and grifters in black robes and three-piece suits. The good news is that families are fighting back and opening eyes. The bad news is that too many establishment journalists are more interested in serving as sycophants to elites than defending the helpless. I’ve asked Kamala Harris’ office for comment on the Probate Predator epidemic. How many others will stand up?

  1. There was another Vice Presidential candidate involved in the same kind of thing. Remember Geraldine Ferraro? I vaguely recall her husband John Zacarro being accused of misappropriating money from an estate he was a trustee of besides his mob connections.

  2. Actual lawyers know this column is offensive and absurd. Judges have to review and rule on everything. In this case the facts show the family was taking money that was supposed to by the text of the will go to a charity established in the trust. The attorney general enforced that. There is zero abuse. As usual because Ms Malkin is not a lawyer, she is clueless.

    It is clear Ms. Malkin does not understand enough to inquire further, such as why would it matter whether Nina Simone's estate would be opened in California rather than France, or why the California AG would even have standing to enforce anything.

    While I truly despise Kamala Harris, there is not enough information in this article to condemn her or anyone else. If Nina Simone created a charitable trust to be administered in CA (which is what it sounds like, based on the fact that (1) Harris got involved and (2) the family did not want a probate estate opened in CA), Harris as the CA AG would have the obligation to protect it from maladministration. If the family misappropriated charitable trust assets, even by mistake, they could be liable for it, civilly and possibly even criminally.

    As for other persons mentioned in this article as supposedly abused by "the system," we are presented with snippets of one person's side of the story but we don't get the full story. Some of it reads like overheated advocacy, such as the charge that a corrupt public administrator caused 102 year old Stan Zurko to lose his will to live. Most people lose it well before 102. And since courts invariably prefer to appoint family members as guardians where possible, the fact that a public administrator was appointed instead indicates that there was a fight among family members over who should be in control, so the court de-fused the controversy by appointing a third party with no personal stake. I've seen it happen countless times.

    In any legal system there will always be incorrect results here and there. That doesn't make the system rotten through and through. And the self-interested are rarely reliably witnesses.

    The AG issue is a distraction. Even local judges delegate probate to administrators. The modern version of "sheriff's deputies" from a 150 years ago.

    First, one wants to see the will & trust documents. Names of administrators & names of the trustees of the trust.
    Then, one wants to see a certified (bonded) CPA accounting for the assets titled to the trusts and the estate. From those core elements one can fairly quickly get a read on the estate.

    The question is this: Did experts turn "administration " into a racket, creating problems for which they could bill. A good example of this is in the JP Morgan case in Texas, where the administrators pitted family members against one another. A move that cost them a billion dollar "judgement."

  19. That doesn’t make the system rotten through and through.

    That’s correct, but it has come around more and more to the Dickensian model of late Victorian Britain, where wealth was eaten up by procedure.

  20. When my mother died she had a modest estate to be divided three ways amongst her children equally with only a holographic will. The problem was the bulk of the estate was tied up in mortgage revenue she was to receive over many years.

    Executors get a percentage and as anyone who has dealt with ‘percentage people’ has found out they do not give them up easily.

    To get rid of the legally assigned parasite I had to get my siblings to let me administer the estate and offer the mortgagees an incentive to refinance. They did and I was able to close the probate and divide the money.

    My father, being a more sophisticated man, didn’t leave a ‘will’ as such, but left ‘designated beneficiaries’ of his assets. Only his house became a problem because, when I needed the original copy of the will, which I had given to a maternal half sister to read, she returned a copy without the ‘notary seal’ upon it. DO NOT EVER DO THAT!!!

    Without a valid will, according to the laws of the state I was in, my father died ‘intestate’ with respect to his home. Fortunately because of those same archaic laws, by virtue of being his biological son I stood higher in the pecking order and the drug addicted half sister, being happy enough what she did get did not push the issue but it cost me several thousand dollars to get her to back down.

  26. Our mom escaped a fraudulent conservatorship against our dad and herself in 2015. At that time she had access to her own money and prevailed. It was brought on by her disinherited and financially cut off son for repayment of a $500,000.00 loan. It caused great financial and emotional stress on our family and our dad died shortly after the court battle.
    Joe “Joey” Adair and his wife Darian Mathias-Adair again filed in 2019 and prevailed. They again used the same out of date addresses, used and exposed in the 2015 case, to notify us three sisters. They left out 10 second degree family members altogether. They filed an ex parte motion and were unopposed.
    This time they hired the “dream team” to take our mom down. Samantha Morris and the Law Office of Eric Becker, Richard Huntington as Private Professional Fiduciary and David N Shaver as the Guardian ad Litem. They hired Fiduciary Real Estate Services, Ruben Martinez and wife/attorney Teresa Gorman (attorney representing several Private Fiduciaries while her business allegedly sold off assets of several alleged victims of conservatorship) to “maintain and preserve” our mom’s property and to sell her property at a 6% rate. They never disclosed any of their conflicts of interest or continued alliances.
    The original court documents claim or mom’s property was only worth $3 million. The current all cash offer is $14 million. Our mom requested to be put into bankruptcy to buy us time to get her out of this alleged fraudulent conservatorship. It has been her only protection as it is Federal Court and held to a higher standard. Richard Huntington payed $27,000.00 to get a low ball appraisal of around $9 million on her 4 acres of commercial property in the city of Orange, California. He could have gotten probate court approval to sell the property at 90% of that value.
    They are trying to force us into a settlement agreement and to hold them harmless for their wrong doings. They are trying to force us into paying their outrageous $675,000.00 in fees for a period of 20 months. There is no end in sight to stop their billable hours. They are claiming the fees are so high because of family strife and interference. They are threatening me with a Cease and Desist order and further liable actions against me for exposing their alleged conspiracy in our case and many others.
    They claim our mom has Dementia based on a psychological exam they paid $7,200.00 to get. We paid $3,000.00 to an actual medical Dr that refutes this.
    This is a crisis that needs to be exposed and all the alleged “predators” held accountable.
    Our case is in Orange County Superior court. I have found victims in every SoCal court.

    Our mom escaped a fraudulent conservatorship against our dad and herself in 2015. At that time she had access to her own money and prevailed. It was brought on by her disinherited and financially cut off son for repayment of a $500,000.00 loan. It caused great financial and emotional stress on our family and our dad died shortly after the court battle.
    Joe “Joey” Adair and his wife Darian Mathias-Adair again filed in 2019 and prevailed. They again used the same out of date addresses, used and exposed in the 2015 case, to notify us three sisters. They left out 10 second degree family members altogether. They filed an ex parte motion and were unopposed.
    This time they hired the “dream team” to take our mom down. Samantha Morris and the Law Office of Eric Becker, Richard Huntington as Private Professional Fiduciary and David N Shaver as the Guardian ad Litem. They hired Fiduciary Real Estate Services, Ruben Martinez and wife/attorney Teresa Gorman (attorney representing several Private Fiduciaries while her business allegedly sold off assets of several alleged victims of conservatorship) to “maintain and preserve” our mom’s property and to sell her property at a 6% rate. They never disclosed any of their conflicts of interest or continued alliances.
    The original court documents claim or mom’s property was only worth $3 million. The current all cash offer is $14 million. Our mom requested to be put into bankruptcy to buy us time to get her out of this alleged fraudulent conservatorship. It has been her only protection as it is Federal Court and held to a higher standard. Richard Huntington payed $27,000.00 to get a low ball appraisal of around $9 million on her 4 acres of commercial property in the city of Orange, California. He could have gotten probate court approval to sell the property at 90% of that value.
    They are trying to force us into a settlement agreement and to hold them harmless for their wrong doings. They are trying to force us into paying their outrageous $675,000.00 in fees for a period of 20 months. There is no end in sight to stop their billable hours. They are claiming the fees are so high because of family strife and interference. They are threatening me with a Cease and Desist order and further liable actions against me for exposing their alleged conspiracy in our case and many others.
    They claim our mom has Dementia based on a psychological exam they paid $7,200.00 to get. We paid $3,000.00 to an actual medical Dr that refutes this.
    This is a crisis that needs to be exposed and all the alleged “predators” held accountable.
    Our case is in Orange County Superior court. I have found victims in every SoCal court.
    Please reach out if you have any of these same “players” on your case!

    How about doing a deep dive into Joe Biden and Hunter Biden? You may find that Jill has conservatorship over Hunter. Dig into his financial receipts found on his laptops and you'll see he had no money of his own. He was given allowances. Why would that be?

    maybe because he did stupid stuff that he could be sued for, like knocking up a stripper

    As a witness to Stan Lacy plight, I find comments about Being a law school offensive. Every attempt was made to comply and obtain justice. Only one jurist attempted to do right, but his retirement left the litigant again undefended from attorney, whom he “fired” continuing their activities unchecked.
    This needs to be stopped.
