The hearing on June 16, 2015, went exactly the way Judge French had prejudged it would during the hearing on April 8, 2015.
My motion for relief was denied. My attempt to question the Richman Greer attorneys about the lies that were told in Court on August 28, 2013, was not allowed despite the law stating that in allegations of Fraud Upon the Court there should be an evidentiary hearing to determine the truth.
If Judge David E. French had allowed such a hearing or granted the motion for relief both John G. White, III and Michael J. Napoleone from the law firm of Richman Greer could have been brought up on charges of misconduct. Judge David E. French was not going to let that happen to his colleagues.
So, in fact it did boil down to how much of my brother’s attorney’s fees I would have to pay.
I kept telling Judge David E. French, My father left me a quarter of a million dollars, I came to this court for help to collect it. This court has never denied that my brother owed me a quarter of a million dollars or that he has broken a dozen Florida laws and been in Breach of Trust for eight years.
Judge David E. French admitted that this was all true.
Judge David E. French was not moved. Just as he had prejudged on April 8, 2015, all he cared about was determining how much my brother’s attorneys would collect for getting the case dismissed despite the fact that there was no reasonable explanation as to why the case was really dismissed. It certainly was not in accordance with the way I read the case laws of Florida.
The positive things that came out of the hearing:
- Judge David E. French ruled the attorneys from Richman Greer could not collect fees for their work on the appellate portions of this case.
- The request by my brother’s attorneys that I be personally liable for all the fees because they claimed this case was frivolous and without merit was denied.
