Richman Greer Answer Brief by Michael Napoleone and John G. White for Peter Halle of Morgan Lewis
Michael Napoleone of Richman Greer and John G. White of Richman Greer filed an Answer Brief with the Fourth District Court of Appeal of Florida on behalf of their client Peter Halle of Morgan Lewis.
It consists of 35 pages and was filed on February 21, 2014. The case number with the Fourth District Court of Appeal of Florida is: 4D13-3796.
Jason Halle, the brother of the Defendant is still waiting for Peter Halle, the Trustee of the Edward Halle Trust to disburse the money that was left to Jason Halle more than 6 years ago.
Peter Halle has already spent more than $100,000.00 in legal fees with Richman Greer in an attempt to avoid disbursing the money.
I Won the Appeal on Jurisdiction
On November 27, 2013, I won the Appeal that my brother Peter Halle filed through one of his attorneys, Charles H. Johnson of Richman Greer with the Fourth District Court of Appeal. It was filed on April 23, 2013. It gave me hope. After filing an appeal of my own, again as a pro se litigant, on October 15, 2013, and having a heart attack four days later, I needed some good news.
The ordeal of trying to get my brother, Peter Halle, a Washington attorney, to disburse the funds my father left to me had seemed to become an impossible task. He was spending so much money to defend not giving me my inheritance. It was not making any sense to me.
At least the matter of jurisdiction was resolved. Now I had encouragement to write the appellate brief to kick off the next round in the Fourth District Court of Appeal.
I was urged by loved ones to just forget all that money and let my brother keep it because of my deteriorating health. I decided that my health would deteriorate faster knowing that I gave up and let Peter Halle get away with the outrageous behavior he was engaging in as my fiduciary. It certainly is not what our father, Edward Halle, had anticipated when he put his last wishes on paper.
Motion to Dismiss is Granted with Prejudice
On August 28, 2013, the Honorable Court held a hearing on Defendant Peter Halle’s Motion to Dismiss Jason Halle’s Fourth Amended Complaint for Failure to State a Cause of Action. John G. White III, of the law firm of Richman Greer was representing my brother, Peter Halle. I was representing myself. Judge David E. French Granted the motion to dismiss with Prejudice. This basically means the law suit is over!
I was expecting that the Judge would give me the opportunity to amend my complaint and correct the problems with it. But I was not given one opportunity to amend my Complaint as a result of any complaint of mine being dismissed for failure to state a cause of action.
I was totally depressed and in a state of disbelief that this case was shut down by the Judge. I could not imagine why he made such a ruling. It certainly did not seem fair to me or in the interests of justice.
