Michigan nursing home sued for imprisoning and ransoming woman

Mimi Brun and her mother, Virginia Wahab. Brun filed a lawsuit alleging a nursing home abused its guardianship of her mother due to an unpaid debt.

A number of studies have found that the greatest fear expressed by senior citizens, a demographic that’s exponentially growing in number in this country, is not death but the eradication of their independence if they are forced to live in a nursing facility. According to a lawsuit filed on May 8, that fear became reality for a vital and healthy Detroit-area woman, Virginia “Jean” Wahab, who spent two years falsely imprisoned in a Waterford, Michigan, nursing home owned by Lourdes, Inc., and sponsored by the Dominican Sisters of Peace religious order. The home demanded payment of what amounted to a ransom of $25,000 to release Wahab from the facility.

“Mom was a fearless, independent woman before Lourdes took control of her,” Wahab’s daughter and caregiver Mimi Brun said. “When I finally got her out of there, it took me a long time to wean her off all the unnecessary anti-psychotic and anti-depressive drugs they had been giving her.”

Brun is the plaintiff in the lawsuit, which claims her mother was subject to false imprisonment, negligence, breach of contract, malicious prosecution, abuse of court process, and the intentional infliction of emotional distress. Filed in the Oakland County Circuit Court, the complaint is a first for Michigan and comes on the heels of Attorney General Dana Nessel’s creation of an Elder Abuse Task Force.

Brun said that although her mother had been living alone before her ordeal began in 2016, by the time she was able to secure Wahab’s release after a protracted legal battle, “She couldn’t stand up. She was terrified of being locked in a room and of someone coming to take her back to Lourdes.”

Before Wahab passed away at the end of April, mother and daughter were finally able to spend a precious few months together after having been kept apart by a court order obtained by Lourdes that severed Brun’s visitation rights.

Short-term rehab to long-term guardianship

According to the complaint, the family’s problems began in February 2016, when Wahab was admitted to Lourdes Senior Community, a $21 million nonprofit organization housing 250 residents at four facilities, for short-term rehabilitation following a recommendation from her doctor. By April 2016, Wahab’s insurance company, Health Alliance Plan, had terminated Wahab’s Medicare benefits at Lourdes, stating that she needed no further services or medication and was “medically stable for discharge.”

In Australia…. an immediate gag order is placed on family members to prevent them from speaking out about the abuses conducted under the protection of Tribunal hearings.  To violate that order, will see the police kicking in your door, filing false charges against you only to have them drop the charges because they have no evidence of wrong doing. But defending yourself from false charges can cost thousands of dollars, your job and have major repercussions.

Sound familiar America??

Join us this evening as we welcome another member of   Australian Association to Stop Guardian & Administrative Abuse.

Louise joins us to tell the story of how her grand parents were stolen by one predatory social worker and how that same worker has numerous other families she has preyed upon in Queensland, Australia.  Gaming the system for profit, this worker targets, captures and monetizes elderly family members and immediately begins to avail herself of assets.  Queensland authorities are fully aware of the trafficking of the elderly, and cooperate fully in the threatening, harassment, and intimidation of family members who fight back.

Sadly, Queensland has the highest volume of elder abuse cases perpetrated by social workers, guardians and trustee’s.  Police retribution and abuse is shocking and continuing without being investigated.  This one particular social worker continues to sign over elderly  victims in the hospital with urgent interim Orders for Tribunal Hearings and the local police help cover up her activities.

BOSTON BROADSIDE: Message to Citizens: Wake Up! (ELDER ABUSE – PROBATE COURT PICKING YOU CLEAN)BOSTON

Message to Citizens: Wake Up!

“When Probate Court Attorneys and Judges Lawlessly and Maliciously Dissever a Fellow Attorney from His Family, Despite Long-time, Executed Advanced Planning Instruments, Best Believe Private Citizens Are Easy Pickings”

by Lisa Siegal Belanger, Esq.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

For more than five years, my sister, Devora, and I have been vigilantly pursuing and defending our family’s right—and all other citizens’ rights—to be free from tyranny by our local government. Since 2011, without any legitimate or valid basis whatsoever, Massachusetts public officials involved with the Probate & Family Court began their trampling of our family’s rights to due process and to protection of the integrity of the family unit guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution.

After years of my personally going to various counties of the Massachusetts Probate & Court system, viewing and obtaining public court records of inordinate other families litigating guardianships and conservatorships, beyond a doubt, this is happening EVERY SINGLE DAY in Massachusetts—which documentation is all publicly accessible and filed in the Massachusetts Federal District Court under the civil action of Belanger, et al. v. BNY Mellon, et al (Docket no. 1:15-cv-10198-ADB).

Moreover, this happens to private citizens regardless of how much money they have—rich or poor. The only prerequisite is that the victim receives some form of governmental benefit. The bread and butter of this probate court industrial complex is Medicaid/Medicare fraud.

Atty. Marsha Kazarosian

For some reason, Auditor Suzanne Bump does not wish to conduct an audit of court appointed guardians and conservators. The filed court documentation overwhelmingly shows that Massachusetts citizens are ALL for the taking by these probate court predators, being cloaked under the color of law and protected by AG Healey.

Just like the non-stop, talk radio ads that claim to “protect your money and family from the probate court” if you hire them to prepare written instruments that the probate court supposedly has to abide by, our father, Marvin Siegel, a retired attorney having practiced law in Downtown Boston for over 50 years, spent large sums of money hiring prominent, expert attorneys to prepare such written instruments. He did so believing that his family would never have to be subjected to dealing with the probate courts. Especially as an attorney, our father executed a Durable Power of Attorney particularly designed to keep him from never having to suffer public humiliation by being judicially declared incompetent.  More

S 178..Another fluff and buff bill that will NOT protect the elderly from predators

1 Comment

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Reading this bill made it abundantly clear that no one is about to upset the apple cart when it comes the continuing exploitation of vulnerable people at the hands of the BAR Association, The National Guardianship Association, The College of Probate Judges and assorted other stakeholders who have a vested financial interest in keeping this predatory system running.  S 178 contains absolutely not one thing that will stop or hold accountable those who exploit other human beings for financial gain.  This bill is an insult to many of us who have fought against this system for years.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Dear Senators: Mr. GRASSLEY(for himself, Mr. BLUMENTHAL, Mr. TILLIS, Ms. KLOBUCHAR,

Mr. CORNYN, Mr. LEAHY, Mr. BENNET, and Mrs. FEINSTEIN) introduced the following bill; which was read twice and referred to the Committee on the Judiciary :

https://www.judiciary.senate.gov/imo/media/doc/S.178.pdf

S 178 To prevent elder abuse and exploitation and improve the justice system’s response to victims in elder abuse and exploitation cases.

I have just completed an in-depth examination of S 178 that is supposedly going to finally address the issues of elder exploitation, including financial, emotional and physical abuse and the ongoing theft of assets from the elderly and the disabled, by predators of all kinds. Also at risk are individuals who have inherited or, who stand to inherit trust funds or other financial instruments. Any one can be targeted in this system if a professional predator operating as “guardian” or, “attorney” decides that the victim has assets that can be stolen under the protection of a probate or family court.

Questions that should have been asked, but were not:

Q: Why should being declared a ward of the state render you dead in the law?

A: Because Probate courts become active only upon presentation of the death certificate. The estate is either testate, or intestate. The declaration of “ward” is the defacto death certificate of the living person.

Q: Why is it necessary to immediately strip the living (dead) person of all natural rights and liberties?

A: This stripping of all rights and protections allows the predators and the probate administrator unfettered access to assets. The living (dead) person’s identity is assumed by the predators as are the assets. The victim is now deprived of the right to due process or to mount a defensive action against the predators.

Q: Why is there not one state or federal law, prohibiting the stripping of Constitutional rights and protections especially in the case of probate of the living person?

A: Because all of the statutes are written by the BAR Association and other vested stakeholders such as The National Guardianship Association and the College of Probate Judges. The individual rights have to be taken away to leave them defenseless. Without these protections in place, they have no right to challenge the predators.

Q: What was included in S 178 that could have conceivably been interpreted to address the ongoing assault on elderly individuals targeted, to facilitate the theft of the estate?

A: Nothing

Q: What provisions were included in S 178 for sighting crimes committed against the victims by professional predators? Who would enforce prosecuting those crimes? What enforcement enabling provision was included?

A: NONE

Another bill to make it look like they are doing something

S 178 To prevent elder abuse and exploitation and improve the

justice system’s response to victims in elder abuse and

exploitation cases. More
