Lawsuit: 'Rank Greed' Led Judge Seidlin To Exploit Elderly Widow

A half-priced downtown condo on the Intracoastal.

A $50,000 piece of land.

More than $500,000 in cash that was was used to pay off mortgage, buy a second home in Pennsylvania, and pay tuition at an expensive private school.  

Family jewelry, a Dell computer, and a widescreen TV.

These are just some of the things Judge Larry Seidlin obtained from elderly widow Barbara Kasler, according to a civil suit filed by the widown's attorney yesterday. The Fort Lauderdale lawyer representing Kasler, Robert Bissonette, filed the suit yesterday claiming that "rank greed" led Seidlin to pilfer the widow's assets and belongings.

The suit alleges that Seidlin exploited Kasler after her second son, Frank Gardner, died, leaving her virtually alone. That's when Seidlin pounced, according to the lawsuit:

Within a short period of time, SEIDLIN and his wife, BELINDA, began frequently visiting and socializing with KASLER and monopolizing her time such that KASLER became socially isolated to the exclusion of other people and her family.

In less than six (6) month's time after meeting KASLER, SEIDLIN was referring to himself as KASLER'S son to third parties and began wearing Frank Gardner's jewelry, to-wit: a gold ring made with two (2) diamonds which came from KASLER'S Father's masonic ring and KASLER'S son REX'S diamond ring as well as an expensive gold bracelet KASLER bought for her son, Frank Gardner. 

 

Shortly thereafter, Siedlin started hauling in some of the big-ticket items listed above. Creepy enough for you? The entire lawsuit can be read after the jump. It's formatted strangely, but the content is there, loud and clear.

                                                                  COMPLAINT

 

            COMES NOW, Plaintiff BARBARA MUMFORD KASLER, by and through undersigned counsel, and sues Defendants LARRY S. SEIDLIN, BELINDA RAY SEIDLIN, BARBARA A. RAY, and OREN A. RAY and alleges:

                        1.         This is an action for equitable relief within the jurisdiction of this Court and for damages in excess of Fifteen Thousand Dollars ($15,000.00) exclusive of interest, costs, and attorney's fees.

                        2.         BARBARA MUMFORD KASLER ("KASLER") is a resident of Broward County, Florida.

                        3.         LARRY S. SEIDLIN ("SEIDLIN") is a resident of Broward County, Florida.

                        4.         BELINDA RAY SEIDLIN ("BELINDA") is a resident of Broward County, Florida.

                        5.         BARBARA A. RAY ("BARBARA") is a resident of Broward County, Florida.

                        6.         OREN A. RAY ("OREN") is a resident of Broward County, Florida.

                        7.         All predicate acts and/or omissions constituting a basis for relief herein occurred in Broward County, Florida.

                        8.         KASLER is eighty-three (83) years of age and is entitled to have the trial of this action advanced on the Court's docket pursuant to Fla. Stat. § 415.1115.

                                            GENERAL FACTUAL ALLEGATIONS

                        9.         On August 1, 2002, KASLER'S second son, Frank Gardner, died.  KASLER'S first son, Rex, also died before Frank Gardner, leaving KASLER without any surviving children.  KASLER was also previously divorced and her former spouse was also deceased.  Thus, by Summer 2002, KASLER was left without any immediate family that was close to her.

                        10.       Just after Frank Gardner's death, SEIDLIN, who resides in the same condominium as KASLER, to-wit: Marine Tower on East Las Olas Boulevard, discovered that KASLER was wealthy, without immediate family, and quickly befriended her.

                        11.       Within a short period of time, SEIDLIN and his wife, BELINDA, began frequently visiting and socializing with KASLER and monopolizing her time such that KASLER became socially isolated to the exclusion of other people and her family.

                        12.       In fact, in less than six (6) month's time after meeting KASLER, SEIDLIN was referring to himself as KASLER'S son to third parties and began wearing Frank Gardner's jewelry, to-wit: a gold ring made with two (2) diamonds which came from KASLER'S Father's masonic ring and KASLER'S son REX'S diamond ring as well as an expensive gold bracelet KASLER bought for her son, Frank Gardner.

                        13.       Also after Frank Gardner's death, BELINDA and her sisters came to Unit 1701 in Marine Tower, then owned by KASLER, and  began walking through the unit, unannounced and uninvited, commenting on how beautiful the unit was with its Southeast exposure to panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean and Intracoastal Waterway.

                        14.       Shortly afterwards, SEIDLIN saw KASLER in the lobby of Marine Tower, initiated a conversation with her, and ultimately prevailed upon KASLER to sell Unit 1701 for the sum of Three Hundred Thousand Dollars ($300,000.00).  A true copy of the Warranty Deed for the sale of Unit 1701 to SEIDLIN'S in-laws, BARBARA and OREN, is attached hereto as Exhibit "A".

                        15.       Unbeknownst to KASLER, the fair market value of Unit 1701 at the time of sale in March 2003 was, according to several familiar Realtors, at least double the sales price, to-wit: $600,000.00 or more.

                        16.       The next month, in April 2003, a parcel of real property located in Palm Bay, Brevard County, Florida was transferred via Warranty Deed from KASLER to BELINDA for only Ten Dollars ($10.00) consideration.  A true copy of the Warranty Deed for the transfer of the Palm Bay property is attached hereto as Exhibit "B".

                        17.       Notably, the fair market value of the Palm Bay property at the time of transfer was approximately Fifty Thousand Dollars ($50,000.00).

                        18.       In January 2004, SEIDLIN wrote a check on KASLER'S bank account in the amount of One Hundred Thirty Thousand Dollars ($130,000.00) that was payable to his wife, BELINDA, and used to pay off the mortgage on SEIDLIN'S and BELINDA'S condominium residence, to-wit: Unit 1208, at Marine Tower.

                        19.       In May 2004, SEIDLIN wrote out a check on KASLER'S bank account in the amount of One Hundred Thousand Dollars ($100,000.00) that was payable to his wife, BELINDA and, upon information and belief, was used to purchase a second home for BELINDA and SEIDLIN in the State of Pennsylvania in 2004.

                        20.       From 2006 through 2008, SEIDLIN wrote checks on KASLER'S bank account totaling Fifty Four Thousand Two Hundred Sixty Dollars ($54,260.00) payable to Pine Crest school for private school tuition benefitting SEIDLIN'S and BELINDA'S minor daughter, Dax Seidlin.

                        21.       From 2003 through 2008, SEIDLIN wrote checks on KASLER'S bank account totaling Fifty Two Thousand Dollars ($52,000.00) payable to his daughter, Dax Seidlin.

                        22.       From 2003 through 2008, SEIDLIN wrote checks on KASLER'S bank account totaling in excess of Sixty Thousand Two Hundred Sixty ($60,000.00) payable to SEIDLIN'S in-laws, BARBARA and OREN.

                        23.       In fact, from 2003 through 2008, SEIDLIN wrote checks on KASLER'S bank accounts totaling Five Hundred Nineteen Thousand Four Hundred Ninety Six Dollars and Ninety-Four Cents ($519,496.94) which benefitted himself or his family .

                        24.       In addition to the foregoing, KASLER has discovered that the following acts were also committed by SEIDLIN after they met:

                                                A.        SEIDLIN demanded a financial kickback from the person who wanted to purchase the home of KASLER'S deceased son, Frank, located on the Intracoastal Waterway in Delray Beach, Florida and owned by KASLER.  The purchaser refused stating that : "I'm not dealing with this guy Larry Seidlin, he's looking for a kickback;

                                                B.        SEIDLIN and BELINDA actively conspired to change the terms of KASLER'S Last Will and Testament.  Specifically, after a dinner party in 2003, SEIDLIN invited Dorothy Colletto ("Danni"), KASLER'S caretaker and girlfriend of KASLER'S deceased son Frank, to their residence, Unit 1208 at Marine Tower.  Danni went to Unit 1208 and SEIDLIN invited Danni into his residence and asked her to sit at a down at a table with BELINDA seated nearby.  SEIDLIN then stated to Danni: "We gotta work together here. You gotta help me.  Now, you've already hit the lottery, you're in Barbara's Will.  You know, we're doing all the work here taking care of Barbara.  You have to help us get those two postcard girls [KASLER'S 2 nieces who sent her postcards] out of Barbara's Will and get my wife [BELINDA] in the Will ... they [nieces] don't help her, so they don't deserve anything .... it's me and you that are helping her.";

C.        An attorney personally observed SEIDLIN at the Broward County Courthouse discussing the conveyance of KASLER'S assets with his staff attorney, Michael Sullivan, Esq.  This conversation occurred in SEIDLIN'S judicial chambers whereupon the following exchange between SEIDLIN and Mr. Sullivan was clearly heard and seen by said attorney: "I met a little old lady in my building.  She's out of her mind but she's loaded with dough ... We got to get her [KASLER] to a lawyer who we don't know and aren't connected to .... Let's put the [Palm Bay] property in Dax's name, it'll never get back to us....";

                                                D.        When KASLER was going to move into John Knox Village where her sister, Joanne Walker resides, SEIDLIN became furious and demanded the return of KASLER'S deposit paid to John Knox so that KASLER would not leave Marine Tower;

                                                E.         When KASLER contemplated a relationship including marriage with someone she knew her entire life, Jerry Barker of Indiana, SEIDLIN became agitated and very nervous, stating to Danni: "Danni, this isn't funny, you gotta do something about this.  You got to talk to Barbara about not marrying this man because we'll lose our inheritance."

                                                F.         SEIDLIN and BELINDA used KASLER'S credit card to purchase items from Home Shopping Network for themselves and had those items shipped to KASLER'S Unit 304.  When those items arrived, SEIDLIN and BELINDA would come down from their Unit 1208 to retrieve these items at KASLER'S Unit 304 and then return with the items to their Unit 1208;

                                                G.        SEIDLIN and BELINDA used KASLER's money to buy electronics and impact resistant windows for themselves located in their Unit 1208;

                                                H.        BARBARA and OREN used KASLER'S money to buy furniture and impact resistant windows for themselves located in their Unit 1701;

                                                I.          SEIDLIN and BELINDA used KASLER'S credit card to make purchases for themselves at Target, Lowes, various hotels and restaurants, airlines, and entertainment.  The value of these credit card purchases is well in excess of one Hundred Thousand Dollars ($100,000.00);

            J.         SEIDLIN and BELINDA'S greed was so extensive that they even redeemed the points on KASLER'S credit card for a digital camera and for gift cards to local restaurants such as Capital Grille and Cheesecake Factory;

                                                K.        SEIDLIN took KASLER on a trip to their Pennsylvania home where KASLER had to pay for the purchase of a new bed that she could sleep on at the Pennsylvania home.  During this trip and unbeknownst to KASLER, SEIDLIN, BELINDA and their minor daughter, Dax, left Pennsylvania for New York City where they stayed at first-class hotels and even attended a Broadway production of "Mary Poppins" at KASLER'S expense while KASLER was bedridden back at their Pennsylvania home; and

                                                L.         Finally, SEIDLIN took control of KASLER'S telephone and mail and controlled the persons that could visit KASLER at Marine Tower.  SEIDLIN even instructed security personnel at Marine Tower to contact him anytime someone showed up and wanted to see KASLER. SEIDLIN's control over KASLER was so pervasive that he would never leave her alone with any third parties.

                        25.       Because of the above described isolation, KASLER became totally dependent upon the Defendants for her care and well-being and, out of necessity, had to rely upon the Defendants for all of her physical, emotional and medical needs.

                                 COUNT I - CIVIL REMEDY FOR EXPLOITATION

                                    (VS. SEIDLIN, BELINDA, BARBARA & OREN)

KASLER re-alleges paragraphs 1-25 above as if fully set forth herein and further alleges:

                        26.       This is a statutory cause of action for civil theft pursuant to Fla. Stat. § 772.11 for violation of 825.103, to-wit: exploitation of an elderly person.  KASLER is over 60 years of age and suffers from the infirmities of aging as manifested by advanced age.

                        27.       Defendants knowingly, by deception or intimidation, obtained and used KASLER'S funds, assets, or property with the intent to temporarily or permanently deprive KASLER of the use, benefit, or possession of the funds, assets, or property.

                        28.       Defendants stand in a position of trust and confidence with KASLER.

                        29.       The funds, assets, or property of KASLER are valued at more than One Hundred Thousand Dollars ($100,000.00).

                        30.       KASLER has substantially complied with written demand to Defendants as required by Fla. Stat. § 772.11 (1).  Said written demands are attached hereto as Exhibit "C".

                        31.       Pursuant to Fla. Stat. § 772.11 (1), KASLER is entitled to treble damages hereunder.

                        32.       Additionally, pursuant to Fla. Stat. § 772.11 (1), KASLER is entitled to her reasonable attorney's fees and court costs incurred in prosecuting this action.

                        33.       Finally, Pursuant to Fla. Stat. § 772.11 (5), KASLER is entitled to have the trial of this action advanced on the Court's docket.

            WHEREFORE, KASLER demands judgment against Defendants for treble damages, court costs, attorney's fees, and for such other and further relief as this Court deems just and proper.

                                                COUNT II - CIVIL CONSPIRACY

                                    (VS. SEIDLIN, BELINDA, BARBARA & OREN)

            KASLER re-alleges paragraphs 1-25 above as if fully set forth herein and further alleges:

                        34.       There is a conspiracy by, between and among the Defendants to this action.

                        35.       The Defendants have conspired to commit unlawful acts, to-wit: to financially exploit KASLER in violation of Florida law.

                        36.       As more particularly alleged above, Defendants have executed overt acts in pursuance and furtherance of the conspiracy.

                        37.       KASLER has suffered damages as a result of the Defendants' acts performed through the conspiracy.

            WHEREFORE, KASLER demands judgment against Defendants for damages, interest thereon for any liquidated amounts due and owing, court costs, and for such other and further relief as this Court deems just and proper.

                                                        COUNT III - RECISSION

                                                       (VS. BARBARA & OREN)

 

            KASLER re-alleges paragraphs 1-25 above as if fully set forth herein and further alleges:

                        38.       This is an equitable action for recission of the Warranty Deed conveyed by KASLER to BARBARA and OREN.for the sale of Unit 1701 at Marine Tower.

                        39.       The character or relationship of the parties is that KASLER, as Seller, has executed a Warranty Deed in favor of BARBARA and OREN, as Buyers, of the real property known as 2500 East Las Olas Boulevard, Unit 1701, Fort Lauderdale, Florida 33301 ("subject property"). 

                        40.       KASLER sold Unit 1701 to BARBARA and OREN even though her understanding was that she was selling Unit 1701 to SEIDLIN and BELINDA.  Unbeknownst to her, KASLER sold Unit 1701 for the sum of $300,000.00 which, at the time of sale to BARBARA and OREN, was approximately fifty percent (50%) below fair market value.  However, all Defendants knew and were aware of the real fair market value of the subject property being approximately double the sale price paid by BARBARA and OREN to KASLER.

                        41.       Accordingly, the grounds for recission herein are based upon fraud by omission coupled with mistake.  Specifically, fraud by omission exists because BARBARA and OREN took advantage of KASLER not being aware of the fair market value of the subject property and they purposely failed to disclose that they were, in essence, getting a proverbial "steal" of the subject property.  Mistake exists by KASLER in that she had no knowledge whatsoever that the subject property was worth double its actual sale price to BARBARA and OREN.

                        42.       Additionally, the subject Warranty Deed should be rescinded on grounds of unconscionablity in its execution.

                        43.       KASLER, through counsel, has rescinded the subject Warranty Deed and has given BARBARA and OREN written notice of such rescission.  A copy of said notice of rescission is attached hereto as Exhibit "D".

                        44.       KASLER has offered to restore benefits received under the subject sale of Unit 1701 by agreeing to refund to BARBARA and OREN the full purchase price and closing costs associated with the subject sale to BARBARA and OREN.

                        45.       KASLER has no adequate remedy at law that would be as just and expeditious as rescission of the subject Warranty Deed.

            WHEREFORE, KASLER demands judgment against BARBARA and OREN rescinding the subject Warranty Deed attached hereto as Exhibit "A" thereby restoring legal title to the subject property in KASLER, for costs of suit, and for such other and further relief as this Court deems just and proper to effectuate the purposes for which recission is hereby sought.

                                                     COUNT IV - CONVERSION

                                    (VS. SEIDLIN, BELINDA, BARBARA & OREN)

 

            KASLER re-alleges paragraphs 1-25 above as if fully set forth herein and further alleges:

                        46.       Defendants have committed unauthorized acts affecting KASLER'S property and assets as more particularly alleged herein above.

                        47.       These unauthorized acts have deprived KASLER of her property permanently or for an indefinite time.

                        48.       The deprivation is inconsistent with KASLER'S ownership interests in her property and assets.

                        49.       Accordingly, Defendants have exercised an act of dominion and control over KASLER'S property and assets inconsistent with her ownership interest thereof.

                        50.       As a result of the Defendants' conversion, KASLER has been damaged.

            WHEREFORE, KASLER demands judgment against Defendants for damages, interest thereon for any liquidated amounts due and owing, court costs, and for such other and further relief as this Court deems just and proper.

                                                         COUNT V - REPLEVIN

                                    (VS. SEIDLIN, BELINDA, BARBARA & OREN)

 

            KASLER re-alleges paragraphs 1-25 above as if fully set forth herein and further alleges:

 

                        51.       This is a statutory cause of action for replevin as authorized by Fla. R. Civ. P. 1.937.

                        52.       This is an action to recover personal property located in Broward County, Florida.

                        53.       The description of the property is as follows:

                                                a. Gold ring with two (2) diamonds formerly worn by KASLER'S deceased son, Frank;

                                                b. Gold bracelet formerly worn by KASLER'S deceased son, Frank;

                                                c. Platinum and diamond tennis bracelet purchased by KASLER;

                                                d. Various personal and estate jewelry owned or purchased by KASLER and in the possession of SEIDLIN and BELINDA;

                                                e. Various pieces of lead crystal owned or purchased by KASLER in the possession of SEIDLIN and BELINDA;

f.          Furniture purchased from Baers' located in Unit 1701 paid for by KASLER in the possession of BARBARA and OREN; and

                                                g. Various electronics including a Dell computer and widescreen television located in Unit 1701 paid for by KASLER in the possession of SEIDLIN and BELINDA.

                        54. To the best of KASLER'S knowledge, information and belief, the value of the property is approximately Fifty Thousand Dollars ($50,000.00).

                        55. To the best of KASLER'S knowledge, information and belief, the above property is located in Unit 1208 at Marine Tower owned by SEIDLIN and BELINDA.

                        56. The property is wrongfully detained by Defendants.  Defendants came into possession of the property by simply taking it from KASLER'S residence or, alternatively, buying it with KASLER'S money. To KASLER'S best knowledge, information, and belief, Defendants detain the property because of rank greed.

                        57.       The property has not been taken for any tax, assessment, or fine pursuant to law.

                        58.       The property has not been taken under an execution or attachment against KASLER'S property.

            WHEREFORE, KASLER demands judgment against Defendants for possession of the above property, for costs of suit, and for such other and further relief as this Court deems just and proper to effectuate the purposes for which replevin is hereby sought.

 

 

                         COUNT VI - UNJUST ENRICHMENT

               (VS. SEIDLIN, BELINDA, BARBARA & OREN)

 

            KASLER re-alleges paragraphs 1-25 above as if fully set forth herein and further alleges:

 

                        59.       KASLER has conferred benefits on the Defendants, all of whom have knowledge thereof.

                        60.       The Defendants have voluntarily accepted and retained the benefits conferred by KASLER.

                        61.       The circumstances, more particularly alleged above, render the Defendants' retention of the benefits inequitable unless the Defendants pay to KASLER the value of the benefits conferred.

            WHEREFORE, KASLER demands judgment against Defendants for damages, interest thereon for any liquidated amounts due and owing, court costs, and for such other and further relief as this Court deems just and proper.

 

COUNT VII - BREACH OF FIDUCIARY DUTY

(VS. SEIDLIN, BELINDA, BARBARA & OREN)

 

            KASLER re-alleges paragraphs 1-25 above as if fully set forth herein and further alleges:

 

                        62.       KASLER and each one of the Defendants shared a relationship where:

           

                                                A.        KASLER reposed trust and confidence in the Defendants; and

                                                B.        The Defendants undertook such trust and assumed a duty to advise, counsel and/or protect KASLER.

                        63.       For example and without limitation, the Defendants fed, bathed, clothed and cared for KASLER as well as paying her bills and KASLER relied upon the Defendants for same.

                        64.       Defendants breached a fiduciary duties owed to KASLER, to-wit: duties of honesty, loyalty, trust, and confidence.

                        65.       KASLER has suffered damages as a result of the Defendants' breach of fiduciary duties.

            WHEREFORE, KASLER demands judgment against Defendants for damages, interest thereon for any liquidated amounts due and owing, court costs, and for such other and further relief as this Court deems just and proper.

           DEMAND FOR JURY TRIAL

            KASLER hereby makes demand for trial by jury on all issues herein so triable.

Just stop all this nonsense, what are you people trying to do, kill her. I have known Barbara for over 20 years, and I know that whatever choice she makes its because she want to. I spoke with her earlier up in the year, little before her niece Karen takes over. She was the one who specifically told me that her niece was going to come up and help her out. She specifically states she love her family but she does not want them involve, in her affairs. She said that her niece Karen has become like a daughter to her over the years, and that she was the only one who took the time out to care for her. So please everyone, just stop. I live in the same building with her, I used to visit her and never have I ever seen any family or friend, Karen was the only one I heard her talk about coming to see her. She chooses her because she trusts her. If her niece did not come in and take care of her, she probably would be dead by now. Please, please, please if you really care for her just leave my friend alone, let she live out the rest of her life in peace, I do not want to lose my friend.

Taking advantage of the elderly is becoming more common.

But, what people don't realize is sometimes the system itself (while claiming to be protecting) is the thief in the night.

Judges are well aware of impropriety or even the look of inpropriety. If Ms. Kasler had "given" all these things to a family member, you can be the court would be investigating and accusing that family member of exploitation -- and then putting a guardianship in place to "protect" the victim. The guardianship would cost the victim everything he/she has in administrative and legal "fees".

Ms. Anonymous,

I'm compelled to tell you that the anger your exhibiting with your stalking, lying, dangerous behavior could lead to a lawsuit against you for slander. And that would go right up against your existing domestic battery charge. It's time for you to get some help, stated in the kindest way possible.

My thoughts and prayers are going up for Mrs. K and all her loved ones. Mrs. K has always been a very kind, compassionate and trusting person. I was sadden to hear of the events of the last few years, but at least now I know why I could not reach her for my annual update on lifes happenings.

In case you are reading this Mrs. K, I am well. Ashley is 24 and teaching, Sean is now home from deployment number 2, and Dan and I are still married and happy.

Hang in there dear. As you always told me, God works everything out in the end.

With all fairness, the SEIDLIN�s may have exploited Mrs. Barbara Kasler, so they say, but they are definitely not the only ones who have done so. I had gotten the opportunity to meet Mrs. Barbara Kasler in person, who is one of the most humblest, patient and understanding person I have ever met. I have worked with her for four weeks and she is a smart lady quite awake, alert and oriented to her surroundings.When I started working with Mrs. Kasler I was very much unaware of everything that was going on until one of her caregiver Avril Hylton started filling me in. Apparently, judge Seidlin hired Avirl who was then working at Dillard�s to help care for Mrs. Kasler. At the time Mrs. Kasler had another care giver Monica who have been faithfully working with her for eight years whom Avril Despises, according to Avril both the judge and Monica realized that all Avril was doing was manipulating Mrs. Kasler, so when the judge was about to fired her, she called Mrs. Kasler�s Niece and started spilling out her own manipulative story. She apparently succeeds in getting rid of both judge Seidlin and Monica. Little did everyone knows that avril went in and force Mrs. Kasler to appoint her niece Corrine Kasler as power of attorney , with the hopes that the niece would intern leave her in charge to oversee Mrs. Kasler, But soon after the niece appointed Lyn Evans, an activist in Fort Lauderdale, to oversee Mrs. Kasler. When avril realized that, she did all she can to get rid of Lyn. She called the niece and expresses her concern, but when it still did not go her way, she was even more determined to get rid of Lyn. Avril have called me upon numerous occasion saying quote � I CANNOT BELIEVE THAT AFTER ALL I HAVE DONE TO GET RID OF THE JUDGE, TELLING MRS KASLER TO REMOVE THE JUDGE WIFE AS POWER OF ATTORNEY AND APPOINT CORINE HER NIECE, EVENTHOUGH MRS. KASLER DID NOT WANT TO DO SO AND INSISTED THAT SHE LOVE LARRY I HAD TO SAY TO HER (sweetheart, if you don�t get rid of Larry, he is going to fire me) AND NOW CORINE DON�T EVEN APPRECIATE IT AND CHOOSE LYN OVER ME TO BE MRS KASLER�S CARETAKER� end quote.I became very disturbed by the things that Avril said so on Tuesday June 23rd, 2009, I sat down with Mrs. Kasler�s niece begging her to please talk to avril as she is out of control, and the things she have been saying I became very afraid, not only for Mrs. Kasler but also for Lyn and myself as to the lengths that avril is willing to go to get what she wanted, which is been in charge of Mrs. KaslerOn Sunday June 28th, 2009 I received a call from one of her caregiver, stating that she is trying to call avril but is getting no answer as Mrs. Kasler had fainted and paramedics is there asking for her Medication chart. I immediately called avril and informed her as to what happen, who intern went to the hospital and started bossing around the doctors to run all kind of test even though she was aware that Mrs. Kasler have done the same tests the day before, and insisted that she is fine and will just wait to see her doctor, so she can be sent home. Avril intern got so upset stating that the niece and caretaker Lyn is not listening to her and once again stated:�I cannot believe that after all I have done to get rid of Larry, now all of this is happening. I am sorry I get rid of Larry, and I really hate Lyn Evans so much. I just cannot wait for them to go to court, I want them to lose the case, and I want them to lose the case. When I go to court to testify for them, I am going to take Larry�s side and tell the judge that yes Larry care for Mrs. Kasler and yes Larry love Mrs. Kasler, I am going to call Mrs. Kasler�s sister and let the state attorney get a guardian for Mrs. Kasler, since they are so ungrateful�I became so terrified, I immediately contacted the niece, making her aware of what was going on, the niece intern contacted Mrs. Kasler�s attorney Robert Bissonette, who apparently intern contacted Avril, who once again denied, even though there were more than one witness to what she said. Both the niece and Mr. Bissonette know in their heart that Avril is lying, especially the niece, yet avril once again slid through their fingers.Ofcoure, I now became Avril�s number one threat, just like Monica. Avril have promise the attorney a story, where avril said he called her saying he really need her as a witness. Avril then agreed to testify against the judge but told the attorney that it was only under one condition, and that was to get rid of me and Lyn Evans, which was intern done.I then realized the urgency as to why they did it as I later learnt that on Tuesday June 30th, 2009, they went and meet with the State Attorney where they took Avril to deliver her testimony against the judge.Now I am not going to say that the judge did or did not do what he is been accused of, that I don�t know, but if that�s the case, what make avril Hylton any difference from Larry Seidlin? Her stories are so contradicting and changes every second. What really is the truth? I have seen with my two eyes the way avril Manipulate and exploit Mrs. Kasler by telling her to do whatever she wants her to do. Wrong is wrong no matter how you view it.I really fear for Mrs. Kasler, especially around Avril as there is no telling what avril might do, once she start crack under pressure, but more so fear for myself as I along with others have felt how evil she is and can be.Mrs. Kasler does not deserve this and I pray that someone could come take her away from all this and put her into a safe place and away from all these people.

Dear Connect The Dots:

Chris Robert's was taken off the site because he couldn't work for no income, like the rest of the staff does, any longer. And he was never involved with HelpMeResolveThis during a Seidlin investigation. No axe-grinders in the group either...the people involved in this work are coldly reviewing the facts of what happened here and the only dilemma we have is whether we should believe Larry Seidlin and his co-conspirators, or our lying eyes.

As a group we will continue to bring the facts that have been swept under the rug, to the surface. And that mission is not for axe-grinder reasons, but we're certainly seeing why so many people do have an axe to grind about what's going on in our community.

So, there you go, Larry. Have a nice day!

Connect the Dots
Connect the Dots

Wasn't Chris Roberts' name and picture posted on Lyn Evans website- I think under Staff or something- as being affiliated with her helpmeresolvethis? Now it has been taken down. Why was Roberts removed from her website? Are they trying to conceal the connection to improve credibilty? It sure does explain alot about how this axe grinding project against Seidlin began and why.

SAO
SAO

Would Larry Seidlin walking into Mrs. Kasler's bedroom saying "if you don't tell the investigators that you wanted to give me all the money, you'll be put in a nursing home and the state will take all of your money"...would that be elder exploitation? Our office, the DCF and the group of Seidlin-friendly witnesses can't seem to figure that out. I'm surprised the real witnesses who testified to the factual abuse didn't simply state that. Oh! That's right. They weren't allowed to give their statements at this investigation.

An Interview With Margaret Singer On Elder Abuse.

nexus: You've studied everything from prisoners of war to cults, and now you're interested in elder abuse. What is the common theme in your work?

MS: The common theme is how people go about influencing each other with words through social and psychological manipulations. I am a specialist on brainwashing and thought reform. I am especially interested in elder abuse because I will be 75 pretty soon. I am a good example of a tough old bird who wants to help the other old birds see to it that their roofs and swings and cages don't get stolen.

nexus: Many of us in the field of elder abuse became interested in undue influence because we were seeing cases in which older people who were clearly competent from a legal and psychological standpoint were making decisions that just didn't make sense to us. Undue influence seemed to offer an explanation. Can you explain exactly what it is?

MS: Undue influence is when people use their role and power to exploit the trust, dependency, and fear of others. They use this power to deceptively gain control over the decision making of the second person.

nexus: What patterns have you observed in elder abuse cases?

MS: I have seen a lot of widows in their late sixties or early 70s who have homes and considerable wealth, which they inherited from their husbands or acquired over a lifetime. And then, a younger guy moves in on these older ladies and starts making them feel as if they were cute 19 year olds again. They bring them flowers, they bring them candy, they take them to places that they haven't been to in years, and they make them forget their age. The next thing you know, the relatives are coming to me saying, "Look, this person representing himself in a position of power has moved in on my family member. She's taking him on expensive vacations and he's convinced her to sign over stocks saying that he can make them grow faster than her broker can." She's being, as they used to say in the old movies, "hornswoggled."

nexus: Who are likely candidates for this kind of abuse?

MS: Many older women have relied on trustworthy husbands or others to make all of their decisions. As a result, they are very dependent and overly trusting. Many women have conveyed to me, right after widowhood, that they are suddenly terrified. And then someone comes along and starts the seduction.

With older men, it is also often the ones who have recently been widowed. These men have been socialized to being with another person. With single men, its often the ones who have lost a long time friend who was very central in their lives. Suddenly, there's nobody there to talk ideas over with. Often, it's younger women who start bringing them cookies or bowls of soup. Later, they get money out of the older men by saying they are going to cosmetology school, junior college, or social work school. The men sympathize with them and see them as needy daughters. And then they start giving them "presents."

Then we have the more fragile elderly who are not really sprightly enough to make all their business, money, household, and tax decisions. First, they start telling the older person that there were no phone calls for him or her. They censor the mail and turn people away at the door and convince the older person that they're the only one who really cares about them. They may start to infantilize the person or, if the person is on medication, they will overdose them with sleeping pills, or give them a little shove so that the person falls or feels dizzy. They treat them more and more fragilely until pretty soon the older person feels that they are totally dependent on this individual. Soon, its "why don't you just let me take the checkbook to The Galleria and I'll sign the check at the store?" And pretty soon, they have emptied out the checking account. happens to poor people.

nexus: During your career, you've dealt with some real pros, people who were extremely skilled in undue influence. In the elder abuse cases, who are the abusers?

MS: It's a whole range. A lot of abusers are real psychopaths or sociopaths who see money, go for it, and have no conscience about it. There are others who have defects in their character and are greedy. And then there are others who are basically okay people who get tempted.

nexus: Lets talk more about how abusers carefully construct conditions that increase the older person's vulnerability to persuasion. You've already mentioned isolating the older person and creating dependency. Are there others?

MS: Yes, and they often reach outrageous proportions. Another approach is to create a "siege mentality," which is the illusion that there are enemies lurking everywhere.

nexus: In the cases we see, it's often service providers who are made out to be the villains.

MS: Right, they start bad mouthing the social worker or the visiting nurse. They'll make the person afraid to take the medicine that the visiting nurse brings or tells them that the police can't be trusted. They tell them that these professionals are going to take away their houses, pensions, and social security, and that they are going to put them in nursing homes. That's the "siege mentality."

nexus: Sometimes victims get very protective of their abusers.

MS: Because they are so afraid. Because they buy into the siege.

nexus: How do you "rescue" these people?

MS: You usually need to find a relative who will come in and get control. Once you get the brainwashers or control artists away, you can hire legitimate people and start bringing the person back to reality. You say, "I know this is going to make you feel badly, but I want you to know that 'Bill' lied to you. This happened not because anything was wrong with you, but because he is a very deceptive person." And when they want to know where the poor boy is, you tell them, "Well, he's not a poor boy. He's being well taken care of in the state prison."

I'm wondering what the SAO could be working on that would be more important than going after a judge who has extorted hundreds of thousands of dollars from a kind elderly woman? Hope it's not something stupid that the Broward County community would be outraged about. Let's go find out!

Anonymous

Get the money back, put the Judge and his family in the clink, and show the world that exploitation of the elderly won't be tolerated. They set Mrs. Kasler up, then went in for the kill. They used their influence to "almost" get away with this scheme, even got agencies sidetracked into thinking that the definition of exploitation isn't what it is, and had associates falsely testify to get them "cleared of any wrong doing."

If I was a betting person, I'd say the State Attorney's Office is going to be forced to reopen this case - that they won't be cleared of any wrong doing a third time - and that other people are going to go down in this investigation. I believe the Plaintiffs have reached a tipping point.

Sword of Justice,

[Ross appointed] General Master MIKE SULLIVAN has some real problems now. Mike, there is now direct evidence of your involvement in this sordid affair. Oops,You committed Perjury in your sworn statement to the Dade State Attorney. Hey Dale, everyone knows that Sullivan is not the sharpest pencil in the box, so why the appointment to a quasi-judicial post? Timing a little suspicious too. Right after his perjured testimony to the SAO protecting your buddy Seidlin. Dale, your biggest worry is your legacy, You destroyed the court system in Broward County for all time. I know the deal you cut with those judges who agreed to support you as chief judge. Ross, you are a pitiful joke, and it's just a matter of time before the whole truth about you comes out. SLEEP WELL!!

Judge Larry Seidlin is an actor, a gifted con-artist; and he got a gift, a free pass from the State's Attorney even though there is no doubt this is financial exploitation by a preadator who knows how to use his position and robe as a cover of being trustworthy.

I am not fooled but it seems.......

The Broward County investigators (was there really an investigation???) and the prosecutor were fooled are they are fools; they aren't looking very intelligent; or appearing as if they are capable of staying in their jobs by letting this judge off the criminal hook.

I am so happy that there is a civil case which will be watched very closely from coast to coast.

My very best to the PLAINTIFF'S!

Interesting is it? And you think of yourself as a full-grown man? More a chattering school girl. Grow out of it.

Anyway, that Twitter hoax is completely false. The funny thing is that I've never actually met the lady in person.

Listen, this is what stunted Broward political mutants in a particular camp do, they spread sexual rumors about people they don't like. And right now they don't like me for obvious reasons. I must confess I actually do find it a bit entertaining.

This is a criminal case, State Attorneys Office! Reopen it and convict this guy because people really are tired of your unwillingness to act. It doesn't seem like this complaint is going to disappear because you say he's "cleared of any wrongdoing" one more time.

and with any luck, and these folk's efforts, the State's Attorneys Office will fall all over itself to reopen the case for the additional evidence, lest they have to explain how they closed the earlier investigation after hearing only from Seidlin's friends and refused to take statements from a half dozen folks with knowledge of the real story, all of whom are ready to tell how Rundle wouldn't take their calls or take their statements despite begging to give evidence to her
