Seeking Plaintiff’s Attorney

Plaintiff’s Attorney

I am looking for a plaintiff’s attorney to represent me on a contingency basis

The case involves a Florida trust that was to be distributed and terminated in 2007 according to the trust document, and still has not been distributed or terminated.

It involves a qualified beneficiary, who is a qualified distributee, who is elderly, chronically ill, HIV positive for 38 years, who has suffered several heart attacks and several bouts of cancer.

Never once has my position as a qualified beneficiary or qualified distributee been disputed or challenged in any court or pleading. Never once has Peter Halle who resides in Washington, DC disputed the fact that Peter Halle is the sole Trustee and has a fiduciary duty towards me.

I have lost not only money and my health, but income and capital appreciation from those monies, and property tax benefits from the loss of the home I had cherished for 13 years.

I have been defrauded for more than 10 years. Peter Halle has also defrauded Medicare and the IRS because of his actions or lack of actions.

State and Federal Law violations include but are not limited to:

Exploitation Of An Elderly Person Or Disabled Person (Fla. Stat. §§825.103 et.seq.);

Perjury;

Fraud;

Mail and Wire Fraud;

Denial of Due Process, 14th Amendment rights;

Tax Fraud;

Violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act;

Breach of Fiduciary Duty.

I have been fighting pro se for many years. I now understand that this is not viable. The justice systems in Broward County and Palm Beach County have treated me unfairly and denied me due process because I didn’t have the money to hire an attorney and decided to represent myself.

I thought the facts of how the Trustee stole a huge amount of money from me was so cut and dried that any honest Judge would quickly find in my favor. I now understand that I need help. Justice is not easily obtained by pro se litigants in South Florida.

I need an attorney that believes in justice, knows how to get this case moved to a venue where the Edward Halle Trust and the thousands of pages of documentation I have can be fairly evaluated by a jury for the first time.

Please let me know if you are a Plaintiff’s Attorney that has any questions, an interest in helping me survive and/or the ability to help me obtain at least a molecule of justice.

Thank you very much for your valuable time.

Perjury Broward County

Perjury by Carolyn Lamm

Did Carolyn Lamm commit perjury in Broward County?

One of the Defendants in a Broward County lawsuit is alleged to have committed perjury. Carolyn B. Lamm, a past president of the American Bar Association (2009-2010) signed a Sworn declaration under penalty of perjury on November 23, 2015 that was later filed in Broward County. In that declaration in paragraph 13 she stated, “…nor have I ever taken any actions for or on behalf of the (Edward Halle) Trust. I have not met or communicated with anyone in the State of Florida or elsewhere in that regard.

On December 4, 2015, another Defendant, also an attorney, Michael J. Napoleone of Richman Greer, filed Ms. Lamm’s alleged perjurious Declaration with the 17th judicial Circuit in and for Broward Country, Florida, Case No: CACE-15-017841.

At least seven instances of contacts by Carolyn Lamm with Florida are memorialized on bills from Richman Greer. These bills were served to Plaintiff Jason Halle and are clearly identified by using the Bates numbering system by the Defendant for identification purposes. (Exhibit I)

The reasons for Carolyn Lamm’s involvements, according to the bills, all pertained to the lawsuit taking place in Palm Beach County. Each one of these represents a contact with the State of Florida and together they represent substantial activity in Florida, and all with respect to the (Edward Halle) Trust.

Carolyn Lamm’s sworn Declaration stating no contacts with Florida or with anyone concerning the Trust proceeding in Palm Beach seems to have committed a third degree felony, Perjury in a official Proceeding.

Michael Napoleone filed this Declaration with the court in Broward County, Florida. He was one of the main people who the Richman Greer bill shows was having contact with Carolyn Lamm while he was in Florida working on the (Edward Halle) Trust.

Michael Napoleone is alleged to have both suborned perjury and committed fraud upon the court by knowingly filing false information in a official proceeding.

Judge Gates does not care much about justice. He keeps ruling in favor of the alleged felons that have stolen hundreds of thousands of dollars from the disabled senior victim. The Defendant and his wife are very wealthy attorneys with political connections. It must be great to control justice with your checkbook and position as an officer of the court. Seems attorneys can break the law in Judge Gates’ courtroom without consequences and steal as much as they want.

Judge Michael Gates

Judge Michael Gates

Jason Halle had a hearing before the Honorable Judge Michael Gates in Broward County Civil Court on February 10, 2016. The Defendants are trying to get the case dismissed. They lied many times to Judge Gates during the hearing, committed alleged perjury and alleged subornation of perjury.

Judge Gates ordered that both sides send proposed orders to his chambers by February 24, 2016. He will make his ruling after that date.

Judge Gates seemed like a gentleman and listened politely to both sides. He smiled at times and made polite responses to the litigants. What a completely different experience this was than Jason Halle had in the Palm Beach Probate Court. Judge French was always yelling at him, telling him to get an attorney. Jason doesn’t remember him ever smiling once.

Judge French’s advice was pretty bizarre, since there are not many attorneys that will take the case of a person that has a grievance in the probate court in Palm Beach County. I have heard this is because they all know of the corruption there and the small odds of getting a fair hearing.

Jason Halle is done in the Palm Beach Probate Court where the attorneys lied repeatedly to Judge David French and as a result collected an attorney fee of $183,811.48, even though their client Peter Halle was in violation of Florida law for more than 8 years and they had lied to a Judge to get the case dismissed. None of the claims were ever adjudged. No opinion was given by the Fourth District Court of Appeal, even after one was requested.

In the Broward County action, Jason Halle alleges that defendants: Peter E. Halle, Carolyn B. Lamm, John G. White III, Michael J. Napoleone, Charles H. Johnson and the Richman Greer Professional Associate engaged in:

Gross negligence/Intentional Misconduct

Tortious Interference with Inheritance

Intentional Infliction of Emotional Distress

Fraud Upon the Court (intrinsic and extrinsic)

Civil Conspiracy/Aiding and Abetting/In-Concert Liability

The Complaint was filed with the Clerk of the Broward Court on October 12, 2015. The Case Number is: CACE-15-017841

Ms. Shanell M Schuyler at the Florida Bar has the duty of protecting attorneys that have committed fraud upon the court and misconduct.

The Florida Bar is a deceptive institution that gives the public the impression it was formed in the public interest and one of its main duties is to police Florida lawyers so that a public agency would not be needed to do this important job.

After a complaint I made regarding Michael J. Napoleone of the powerful Richman Greer Professional association was rejected a second time with no explanation that pertained to the facts in the complaint, I wrote Ms. Schuyler the following letter on November 27, 2015. The letter was never answered by her or anybody else at the Florida Bar.

Re: Mr. Michael Joseph Napoleone; RFA No: 15-9614

Dear Ms. Schuyler,

I am in receipt of your letter of September 28, 2015. I appreciate the time and you took to respond to my serious concerns.

A fully documented complaint was submitted to the Florida Bar detailing clear, compelling, and indisputable evidence that a Florida attorney, “with intent to deceive the court” knowingly made false statements and withheld material information.

No defense was ever offered to the fact that Mr. Michael Joseph Napoleone made knowingly false statements to the Courts.

Fact One: On June 6, 2013, Michael Joseph Napoleone of Richman Greer stated in a court document that, “Notably, Plaintiff’s motions to amend have not arisen as a result of the Court’s dismissal of any of Plaintiff’s prior complaints or claims…”

Fact Two: on August 28, 2013, just a few weeks later with no hearing in between, in the Courtroom of Judge David E. French, John George White, III, of Richman Greer stated, “…the plaintiff keeps filing these lawsuits, they keep getting dismissed,… and I think it’s time that Your Honor dismiss it with prejudice.”

It’s amazing to me how “not arising as a result of the Court’s dismissal of any of Plaintiff’s prior complaints or claims” can magically turn into, “they keep getting dismissed” in such a short interval of time.

Fact Three: On February 21, 2014, Mr. Michael Joseph Napoleone made false statements to the Fourth District Court of Appeal in a Reply Brief where he stated, “Mr. White did not “lie,” as Appellant alleges in his ad hominem attack.”

Fact Four: On October 27, 2014, I wrote a letter to Mr. Napoleone asking him to state to the Fourth District Court of Appeal that his statements in his Reply Brief on February 21, 2014 were false. (Letter attached)

Fact Five: On October 28, 2014, Mr. Napoleone wrote me a letter again stating that he was not aware of any false statements by Mr. White during the hearing on September 28, 2013. (Letter attached)

Fact Six: As requested by Mr. Napoleone I sent him the clarifications that he requested regarding Mr. White’s testimony on September 28, 2013. (Letter attached)

Fact Seven: Mr. Napoleone again stated there were no false facts during the hearing of August 28, 2013. This is again in direct contradiction to the court document he authored with Mr. White on June 6, 2013, claiming there had been no dismissals. (Fact One)

It seems that Mr. Napoleone believes that if you tell a lie often enough, people will begin to believe it.

Does the Florida Bar approve of this shameful pattern of misconduct? The duty of keeping the promise fell to you, Bar Counsel, Shanell M. Schuyler. It seems you did exactly what Mr. Napoleone expected you to do.

You betrayed the public trust and closed the file. Your letter closing the bar file rained rhetoric about not second-guessing the court and not retrying the underlying civil and appellate cases but you failed to offer any analysis of the facts or to justify your decision about Mr. Napoleone’s misconduct and why it was ethical to give conflicting testimony that seemed to change when the case required it.

Conspicuously missing from your letter is any comment regarding the undisputed evidence that Mr. Michael J. Napoleone, a partner in the politically potent Richman Greer law firm, offered false statements to a Florida Trial Court and then again to the Florida Fourth District Court of Appeal.

There has been no comment on the proven facts that Mr. Napoleone offered contradicting signed statements. No comment on the fact that Mr. Napoleone did not deny that he offered false testimony both to the Fourth District Court of Appeal that directly contradicted what he had previously stated to the Trial Court in a signed document.

You simply closed the file. Moving on is not fair to the people of Florida that rely on the Bar to keep attorney’s ethics on a high enough level to prevent the appearance of fraud and double-dealing.

Convenient for the corrupt, a decision of bar counsel to close any file is not subject to appeal. This caveat trumps truth. Get out of jail free; a cheap bar trick. The deceit goes on.

No wonder Mr. Napoleone was so confident his fraud upon the court was not going to be a problem for him.

An appeal to the court of public opinion seems to be the only thing left to expose the deep corruption being practiced in the Florida Bar. Is the bar a protector of public integrity in the Florida courts, or a purveyor of perversion? Is the bar a trustworthy arm of the Florida Supreme Court or a fraternity of fraud and cronyism?

The public will decide if the Florida Bar ignored the truth and encourages false statements in the Florida Trial Courts and the Florida Fourth District Courts of Appeal.

Your message that attorney misconduct is allowed and encouraged in the State of Florida, by the Florida Bar Association that you represent, is loud and clear.

Respectfully,

Jason Halle

Judge French Awards $183,811.48

Judge David E. French Awards

Judge David E. French Awards $183,811.48 to Peter Halle

Click on my photo above to read an article one of Judge David E. French’s buddy’s, Adam M. Myron, a partner of Richman Greer, wrote about his good old friend the Judge. Adam was one of the attorneys that this award was based upon.

I am Jason Halle. I am a qualified beneficiary of the Edward Halle Trust and a qualified distributee as well.

In 1987 Ronald Siegel, an attorney that was practicing law in Boca Raton, Florida, wrote a easy to understand Trust document for my dad, Edward Halle. It clearly stated that upon the death of my mother, Elaine Halle, the trust was to be distributed immediately to the beneficiaries and then terminated.

The trigger for disbursement and termination of the Trust occurred in August of 2007. Peter Halle, the Trustee chose to ignore the instructions of the Trust and refused to make the distributions and terminate the Trust. This was a breach of the Trust as well as a violation of at least a dozen Florida laws. Peter Halle never gave a reasonable explanation regarding his actions.

I hired two attorneys to try to get my brother, Peter Halle, to follow the instructions of the Trust and the laws of Florida. My attorneys were ignored, one of them for a year and a half.

In my opinion Peter Halle was playing with me. I felt he was like a child pulling the wings off a fly. Peter Halle was well aware of my heart condition, previous heart surgery, AIDS, cancer operations, etc.… Peter Halle just seemed to be enjoying my suffering and waiting for me to die so he could keep all the money.

In 2011, I tried find an attorney to help me. It was obvious at this point that going to court was the only option because Peter Halle kept breaking the law and breaching the Trust. Peter Halle was even filing fraudulent tax returns for the Trust, implying that he was making distributions that never in fact happened. This raised my tax liabilities and caused me further harm.

After copying the file many times and delivering it to many attorneys and having many consultations, all of the attorneys I met with refused to represent me or I could not afford them. They were all very positive until I mentioned that my brother’s wife, Carolyn B. Lamm was recently the President of the American Bar Association (2009-2010).

I decided to take the matter to the probate court in West Palm Beach myself, without an attorney. My reasoning was, I am a qualified beneficiary, a qualified distributee and I have a valid Trust document created by Ronald Siegel. Esq. of Boca Raton, Florida.

My brother Peter Halle, a well-established lawyer licensed to practice in Florida and the District of Columbia, was breaking the law, breaching a Florida Trust and had filed a Notice of Trust with the Palm Beach Court in 2007. I figured, what could go wrong?

WOW, everything went wrong. But not at first. The case was assigned to Judge James Martz. Judge Martz seemed to be very impartial and things were going along very well while he was presiding.

Then there was a rotation of Judges. Suddenly Judge David E. French became the Judge in charge of this case. Impartiality seemed to disappear. Judge David E. French always appeared to be angry at me. Many times he told me I should hire an attorney, that probate court was no place for a pro se litigant. This seemed harsh since it was my right to obtain justice from the probate court, with or without an attorney. Since I could not find an attorney to represent me that I could afford, I did not seem to have any other options. Believe me, I tried.

My brother, Peter Halle’s response was to eventually hire ten (10) of top attorneys in Southern Florida to work on the case. They were Alan G. Greer, Charles H. Johnson, Michael J. Napoleone, John “Jay” G. White III, Adam M. Myron, Ethan J. Wall, Joshua I, Spoont, Leslie A. Metz, Marta Stypulkowski, Georgia A. Buckhalter, all from Richman Greer.

I later learned from testimony in court by Michael J. Napoleone that Peter Halle’s wife, Carolyn B. Lamm was good friends with Alan G. Greer. It was because of their special relationship and the fact that Carolyn had been a past President of the American Bar Association (ABA) that Richman Greer was not concerned about not being able to find a fee agreement between any of the parties. By law, as a qualified beneficiary, I should have been provided a fee agreement when attorneys were first hired by the Trust if there had been an agreement as they claimed.

Carolyn B. Lamm used her enormous legal expertise to help her husband Peter Halle violate the Florida laws and breach the Trust. Carolyn, besides being a past President of the American Bar Association (ABA) is also a Florida attorney.

On June 6, 2013, John G. “Jay” White, III and Michael J. Napoleone of Richman Greer stated in a court document that, “Notably, Plaintiff’s motions (my motions) to amend have not arisen as a result of the Court’s dismissal of any of Plaintiff’s prior complaints or claims…”

Then on August 28, 2013, just a few weeks later with no hearing in between, in the Courtroom of Judge David E. French, John George White, III, stated, “And this – I don’t know if it’s leverage or what – but the plaintiff keeps filing these lawsuits, they keep getting dismissed, chewing up, you know, money potentially that’s in the trust and there’s not a lot of it and I think it’s time that Your Honor dismiss it with prejudice.”

It’s amazing to me how “not arising as a result of the Court’s dismissal of any of Plaintiff’s prior complaints or claims” can magically turn into, “they keep getting dismissed” in Judge David E. French’s courtroom and the Judge wouldn’t acknowledge it or let it be discussed. It was like having an 8,000 pound elephant in the room that was off limits!

On November 13, 2015, Judge David E. French signed a Final Order allowing Peter Halle, Trustee for the Edward Halle Trust, to reimburse himself from the Trust in the amount of $173,490.48 for the fees he paid to Richman Greer. Then another $6,046.00 to Richman Greer for Trust Administration. The Order also allowed payment of another $4,275.00 to attorney John B. Murray, Esq. So that comes to a total of $183,811.48.

Trust administration? Where was there any Trust administration other then the fraudulent tax returns and a refusal to follow the instructions of the Trust?

There still has been no distribution and termination of the Trust. Florida laws are still being violated by Peter Halle.

My claims had been reasonable. Fraud upon the Court had been committed. My status as qualified beneficiary and qualified distributee had never been challenged. The Edward Halle Trust or any of its instructions had never been challenged.

Judge David E. French stated in his Final Order, “The Court now states what the record accurately reflects: that the results obtained for the Defendant by its attorneys virtually could not have been better.” That is an understatement. They must have said the same thing about O.J. Simson’s attorneys.

If you are an honest person with a serious problem that needs legal resolution in the probate court; if you are not rich; a privileged millionaire; or have powerful contacts in Washington and you find yourself in Judge David E. French’s courtroom, in my opinion you are in very big trouble.

Do you have a valid will or Trust that specifically states who the beneficiaries are? Not important in Judge David E. French’s courtroom.

Are you an attorney that believes the best way to win a lawsuit is to lie to the Judge? This is not a problem in Judge David E. French’s courtroom either. Every time I tried to bring this up I was silenced by Judge French. When I wrote a motion asking for a rehearing due to John “Jay” G. White’s Fraud Upon the Court, he dismissed it without even hearing any arguments.

When I asked Judge David E. French to recuse himself because he was prejudging motions, he refused.

This is my story. It is true and I have the documents to prove everything I’ve said. The opinions stated are my own.

Judge David E. French Hearing

Thursday November 12, 2015 at 3:00 p.m.

Judge David E. French, Courtroom 2

200 West Atlantic Avenue, Delray Beach, FL 33444

Come to the hearing and experience the Florida Probate Court in action. Here is a Preliminary Statement from a Memorandum filed with the Court. I hope you can attend and witness this for yourself.

PRELIMINARY STATEMENT

Believing that he was entitled to a distribution of the Trust upon the death of Edward Halle and Elaine Halle (2007) in accordance with the Trust Document written in 1987, Jason Halle commenced an action against Peter Halle in 2011, some four (4) years after the Grantor’s wife, Elaine Halle’s death.

Peter Halle the trustee for the Edward Halle Trust, a well-established attorney in his own right, hired a very prestigious law firm in Miami, Florida (Richman Greer P.A.).  Prestigious or not, Jason Halle continued with his lawsuit after years of communicating with Peter Halle to no avail. After Jason Halle’s attorney, Nola Richardson presented a valid settlement proposal and Jason Halle waited one and a half (1.5) years to get an acknowledgement from anyone at Richman Greer.  With no distribution or explanation, Jason Halle saw no alternative.  While Jason Halle was a pro se litigant and not always as well versed as the attorneys, his claims were not without merit. They were however ignored.

Everyone refused to acknowledge that the Trust called for distribution upon death. It was not being distributed and Jason Halle’s extremely poor health demanded that distribution be made.  Eight years later his health has diminished and he has lost his beloved home.  Why? For just the desire of his brother, Peter Halle, to keep the money away from Jason Halle. He was backed up by ten (10) additional attorneys that he hired. That is exactly what was done. The attorneys are now asking to be compensated for their successful efforts to aid and abet their client Peter Halle’s violation of many Florida Statutes and to aid him in successfully disregarding the Grantor, Edward Halle’s very clearly written wishes.

After lying to the court by telling the judge that Jason Halle’s several amended complaints had been dismissed by the court (there were no dismissals), the court dismissed his last complaint with prejudice and now is considering awarding the attorneys of some $241,000 in attorney fees.

Re: Mr. Michael J. Napoleone; RFA No: 15-9614

Dear Ms. Maura Canter,

I am in receipt of your letter of December 10, 2014. Thank you for taking your time to respond to my serious concerns on behalf of The Florida Bar.

In your letter to me you stated, “The Florida Bar only has authority to investigate complaints to determine if an attorney has violated the rules governing attorneys and whether disciplinary action is warranted regarding the attorney’s license to practice.”

Ms. Canter, it was never my intention for The Florida Bar to change the outcome of anything that has happened in the Courts in the State of Florida. I know that this is not within the purview of The Florida Bar.

Mr. Michael J. Napoleone has allegedly violated six of the Florida Rules of Professional Conduct which were listed in the Bar Complaint that I filed on November 30, 2014. Under the Florida Bar Standards for Lawyer Sanctions disbarment is appropriate as I outlined in the Complaint.

I hope that the fact that the Defendant Peter Halle is a Florida Attorney, that Mr. Michael J. Napoleone is a Florida Attorney, that the Florida Attorneys at the Florida law firm of Richman Greer that worked on this case were licensed by The Florida Bar, that the Defendant’s wife and Successor Trustee of the Edward Halle Trust is Carolyn B. Lamm, a Florida Attorney and a Past President of the American Bar Association (2009-2010) and that I am a total nobody in the legal profession does not have any bearing on the actions of The Florida Bar.

Powerful people don’t need the protection of The Florida Bar. It is ordinary Florida residents that are being abused by Florida legal professionals licensed by The Florida Bar that are committing misconduct that are in need protection.

My family, friends and readers keep asking me why I don’t complain more vigorously to the Florida Bar about Mr. Michael J. Napoleone’s alleged misconduct. Everybody in Florida seems to believe that The Florida Bar will protect people from attorneys that lie to Judges in a Brief filed with the Appellate Court.

If you feel that Florida attorneys should be allowed to violate the Florida Rules of Professional Conduct that I have outline in my original complaint when involved in a case with a Pro Se litigant, I wish you would explain this to me and my readers so we may better understand how The Florida Bar exercises its investigational process when misconduct is alleged.

All that is necessary is for Mr. Napoleone to produce the court documents that support the statements that there had been multiple dismissals in the case in question before it was dismissed with prejudice. Since no such documents exist, he will not be able to do this and his guilt will be easily ascertained.

This letter is written with the utmost respect and confidence that The Florida Bar will do the next correct thing.

Very Sincerely,

Jason Halle

Judge David E. French Courtroom in Delray Beach, Florida

Judge David E. French Courtroom in Delray Beach, Florida

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:

  1. Judge David E. French ruled the attorneys from Richman Greer could not collect fees for their work on the appellate portions of this case.
  1. 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.

There also has been no resolution in this case that requires my brother, Peter Halle, a Florida attorney, to stop violating Florida laws or to distribute any of the money my father left to me.

A Hearing before Judge David E. French

was held on

Tuesday, June 16, 2015 at 2:00 p.m.

Hearing on June 16, 2015

Hearing on June 16, 2015, before Honorable Judge David E. French

The hearing before Judge David E. French was held on:

Tuesday June 16, 1015, at 2:00 p.m.

South County Courthouse, 200 West Atlantic Avenue, Courtroom 2

Delray Beach, Florida 33444.

There already had been Orders that stated that there will be NO consequences for Peter Halle, a Florida Attorney, that has violated about a dozen Florida Statutes (laws) and has been in breach of Trust for about eight years.

The Appeal Court has decided that there has been no prejudice involved in that ruling even though I still don’t have my inheritance and the ruling allows my brother Peter to keep the money. All of the attorneys involved just keep focusing on the fees they are getting and that they have protected one of their own.

The bias against this Pro Se litigant is immense. This whole court action seems to have degenerated into how to save the Defendant, a Florida Attorney who was in Breach of Trust for eight years and who had violated a dozen Florida Statutes. The goal being that he have no negative consequences for his unlawful actions.

Then the next objective of the Court was not to allow any evidentiary testimony that would confirm that John G. White, III of Richman Greer law firm in West Palm Beach and Miami was guilty of misconduct for committing Fraud upon the Court. More Florida attorneys escaping negative consequences of their actions.

Now the victim, Jason Halle, is being told that according to Judge French’s ruling the Defendant Peter Halle can keep the money and Jason will have to pay one half of the Defendant’s legal fees!

Judge David E. French agrees that the Court never found that Peter Halle was not in Breach of the Trust. He also agreed that the Court never found that Peter Halle was not in violation of the many Florida Statutes in the Complaint.

Judge French never stated that John G. White, III of Richman Greer in West Palm Beach and Miami had not committed Fraud Upon the Court.

Judge French knew that Jason Halle is gay, has been HIV+ for 36 years, has a heart condition, is a cancer survivor three times and ran out of money while trying to get his brother to disburse his inheritance according to the terms of the Trust Document.

It seems to make sense why Judge David E. French is bias towards all of the Florida attorneys involved. He knows them. The Defendant’s wife, Carolyn B. Lamm, is a past President of the American Bar Association (2009 – 2010). They are all members of the same powerful club that reaches all the way back to Washington, DC.

I have always paid my taxes and tried to do the right and honest things in my life. I am naive, because I do not understand were all of the negative bias towards me is coming from. I expected justice from the Palm Beach Circuit Court.

All of the motions had been prejudged at a previous hearing. A Motion to Recuse had been Denied. A Petition for Writ of Prohibition had been denied. Everything ended up going down exactly as Judge David E. French had previously prejudged.

Is this a situation about powerful organizations protecting their own? Rich, powerful, politically connected lawyers and a gay, HIV+, Jewish, senior citizen with limited resources.

Everyone should be interested. If the courts are willing to do this to me, you can be sure they will be willing to do this to you.
