Probate Notes - LASC BP099211 for 11 August 2014


First off, had Mr. Thelsey L. Fuller been placed on the witness stand these cases would have been over a very long time ago and all of the attorneys involved would have collected a whole lot less in attorney fees.

There is no deposition or testimony by Thelsey L. Fuller.  

He was not deposed and he was not called to the witness stand.

He wasn't even allowed to be present during mediation.

Steven A. Fuller and Sandra Jones Anderson had 15 months to place the man whom they were suing on the witness stand which they failed to perform.

It is alleged that Atty. Anderson and Atty. Lak drug the case out in order to inflate their attorney fees.

Continuance, continuance, continuance, after continuance ruled the day.

Robert Stella, elder abuse case update


Restraining order filed against alleged perpetrator

By Pat Sherman
A civil court judge has granted a five-year restraining order against Victoria Turner, the woman accused of abusing 91-year-old La Jolla resident Robert Stella.
As reported in La Jolla Light in March, Stella was removed from his home on Avenida de las Pescas, which the family alleges estranged wife Turner filled with trash, clutter and stray animals — including a dead cat animal control found in the bathroom and a Chihuahua found in the freezer.
The family claims Turner denied Stella food and water, and at times tied him to the bed. Turner later donned a disguise to sneak into the residential care facility where Stella was on the mend. Surveillance cameras captured her attempting to have Stella sign what appeared to be legal documents.

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Embattled Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling lost his attempt to block the $2 billion sale of the team to former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer.

In allowing the deal to go forward, Superior Court Judge Michael Levanas sided Monday with Sterling's estranged wife, Shelly Sterling, who negotiated the record sale after the NBA banned the 80-year-old billionaire for making offensive remarks about blacks.

LIES! of Steven A. Fuller, LASC Case #BP099211; BP122665


LIES! Perjury of Steven A. Fuller

Background

Steven purchased a home at 4004 Degnan Blvd, Los Angeles on 06/12/2007 for $625,000.00
http://losangeles.blockshopper.com/property/5033015023/4004_degnan/

Within the next six months immediately after purchasing the home mentioned above, Steven Fuller was faced with foreclosure and the immediate need for increased revenue/income.

Click on images to increase size.





































Testimony of Steven Fuller, pages 49 - 55 follows:







































It must be noted that the property located at 1916 N. Belhaven Ave. in which Carol resided was not the property of Steven Fuller but, instead the property of Mr. Thelsey L. Fuller and his wife, Mrs. Edwina J. Fuller.

Therefore, it was not Steven's decision whether or not Carol paid rent or not, that decision ultimately belonged to Thelsey and Edwina Fuller, Carol's parents.

The amount agreed to was $300.00 per month not $350.00 as Steven testified too.

Also, Quentin Hadnott, Edwina's great-grandson, lived in the home and is alleged to have provided caregiver services sixty-percent of the time i.e. in Steven's absence.

Steven also had boarders in the home at the time as well.





































Wall Street was to big to fail in the third quarter of 2008, that is when almost everyone took a huge hit in the financial markets...  It was not and is not the families responsibility to cover Steven's bad investments or his debts.






































Steven Fuller did not drop the suit against Carol, the judge wouldn't allow it.

Keep in mind, that Steven had already filed his lawsuit against Mr. Thelsey L. Fuller for financial gain as well.

Mrs. Edwina J. Fuller never sued her husband for anything, not even alimony nor child support.





































Steven Fuller did not drop his law suit against Carol.

He lost.

As far as Steven's law suit against Mr. Thelsey L. Fuller is concerned, Atty. Sandra Jones Anderson had every opportunity over the course of 15 months to place Mr. Thelsey L. Fuller on the witness stand or to have him deposed which she failed to perform.

Robert Fuller made sure that Mr. Thelsey L. Fuller was in the courtroom and available to testify on several occasions.

Continuance, upon continuance ruled the day, as a direct result of which Atty. Anderson has been rewarded with over $50,000.00 in attorney fees that will be collected and paid from the estates of  Mr. & Mrs. Thelsey L. Fuller once the real estate is sold and the various court cases are settled.

Had Mr. Thelsey L. Fuller been placed on the witness stand or deposed the initial court case would have been over circa 2008.

Also, it is alleged that Atty. Daniel K. Lak has collected in excess of $100,000.00 from Robert Fuller on these actions.

Dude sold mother's home $100,000 below fair market value


Selling the home $100,000.00 below fair market value, an act of financial elder abuse, is just the tip of the iceberg.

Now he is demanding $125,000.00 for something that he volunteered to do and something that mother never agreed too.  

Yeah, dude wants to be rewarded via the civil action in L.A. Superior Court case BP 099211 et al. petitioning the Court to reward him for his fuck ups.

What he won't do is admit to the things that he did wrong in financially abusing his elderly siblings.

He coerced and intimidated his sisters in order for his friends er, attorneys, to get rich off of both deceased parents estates.

How does one charge your mother for rent?

Congress should fund the Elder Abuse Victims Act


"In March, the Obama administration submitted a modest $25 million proposal to fund the Elder Justice Act, a law enacted in 2010 but grounded by a lack of funding. The administration’s request would fund grants to test ways to detect and prevent elder abuse, strengthen data collection and support research into the issue. The funding would also establish demonstration grants and determine what works and what does not. This funding would help develop a data system and research to create credible benchmarks for preventing elder abuse.

Unfortunately, a subcommittee of the Senate Appropriations Committee slashed the funding to $10 million, an amount insufficient to begin work to address this crisis among our elderly."

"tsunami directed at our seniors"


Elder abuse tarnishes senior's golden years
Number of cases triple in past 6 years

"Our criminal justice system is not prepared for it; our courts aren't prepared for it; our government agencies are not prepared for it..."

HONOLULU —The many different forms of elder abuse can tarnish the golden years of seniors.

One front-line expert now expects Hawaii's growing elder abuse problem to turn into an epidemic.

Island pawn shops are being used by more than just those who need a little extra cash to cover their monthly bills.

"Seniors are coming into pawn shops and selling their wedding rings and jade jewelry to pay the money to someone in Nigeria because they won the lottery," said Scott Spallina, with the Elder Abuse Justice Unit.

Fake lottery and sweepstakes top the list of scams targeting Hawaii's seniors.

They are just some of the many designed by criminals to cash in on the vulnerability, trust or loneliness of our elderly.

The scams are nothing new, but what has changed is the number of elder abuse cases.

U.S. Court: Bloggers Are Journalists


U.S. Court: Bloggers Are Journalists
Even when they're libeling you
ROBINSON MEYER JAN 21 2014, 3:49 PM ET

One of the great questions of our time came closer to resolution last week, when a federal court ruled that bloggers are journalists—at least when it comes to their First Amendment rights. 

The Ninth Circuit ruled as such on Friday in Obsidian Finance Group v. Crystal Cox, a complicated case first decided in 2011. The court found that even though someone might not write for the “institutional press,” they’re entitled to all the protections the Constitution grants journalists.

The protections of the First Amendment do not turn on whether the defendant was a trained journalist, formally affiliated with traditional news entities, engaged in conflict-of-interest disclosure, went beyond just assembling others’ writings, or tried to get both sides of a story. As the Supreme Court has accurately warned, a First Amendment distinction between the institutional press and other speakers is unworkable: “With the advent of the Internet and the decline of print and broadcast media . . . the line between the media and others who wish to comment on political and social issues becomes far more blurred.”

As you may or may not be aware the state of California has enacted various laws regarding internet harassment, calculated to inflict emotional or physical harm.

Black's Law Dictionary, defines such internet harassment as:

    "A course of conduct directed at a specific person that causes substantial emotional distress in such person and serves no legitimate purpose" or "Words, gestures, and actions which tend to annoy, alarm and abuse (verbally) another person." 

Cyberstalking is defined as: The use of the Internet, email or other electronic communications to stalk, and generally refers to a pattern of threatening or malicious behaviors.. Sanctions range from misdemeanors to felonies.

Cyberharassment  generally is  defined as not involving a credible threat. Cyberharassment usually pertains to threatening or harassing email messages, instant messages, or to blog entries or websites dedicated solely to tormenting an individual.

CIVIL CODE
SECTION 1708-1725

1708.  Every person is bound, without contract, to abstain from injuring the person or property of another, or infringing upon any of his or her rights.


1708.7.  (a) A person is liable for the tort of stalking when the plaintiff proves all of the following elements of the tort:

       (1) The defendant engaged in a pattern of conduct the intent of which was to follow, alarm, or harass the plaintiff. In order to establish this element, the plaintiff shall be required to support his or her allegations with independent corroborating evidence.

       (2) As a result of that pattern of conduct, the plaintiff reasonably feared for his or her safety, or the safety of an immediate family member. For purposes of this paragraph, "immediate family" means a spouse, parent, child, any person related by consanguinity or affinity within the second degree, or any person who regularly resides, or, within the six months preceding any portion of the pattern of conduct, regularly resided, in the plaintiff's household.

       (3) One of the following:

       (A) The defendant, as a part of the pattern of conduct specified in paragraph (1), made a credible threat with the intent to place the plaintiff in reasonable fear for his or her safety, or the safety of an immediate family member and, on at least one occasion, the plaintiff clearly and definitively demanded that the defendant cease and abate his or her pattern of conduct and the defendant persisted in his or her pattern of conduct.
    
       (b) For the purposes of this section:

           (1) "Pattern of conduct" means conduct composed of a series of acts over a period of time, however short, evidencing a continuity of purpose. Constitutionally protected activity is not included within the meaning of "pattern of conduct."

              (2) "Credible threat" means a verbal or written threat, including that communicated by means of an electronic communication device, or a threat implied by a pattern of conduct or a combination of verbal, written, or electronically communicated statements and conduct, made with the intent and apparent ability to carry out the threat so as to cause the person who is the target of the threat to reasonably fear for his or her safety or the safety of his or her immediate family.

              (3) "Electronic communication device" includes, but is not limited to, telephones, cellular telephones, computers, video recorders, fax machines, or pagers. "Electronic communication" has the same meaning as the term defined in Subsection 12 of Section 2510 of Title 18 of

    I am not outlining  internet law to you simply to be verbose.  If necessary I will take what ever action necessary against you and the principal (i.e. person making you their “attorney-in-Fact”) to protect myself or my professional representation.  Such actions can be long and expensive.

To Me, Randall T

I saw your smear campaign on your blog.  I spoke with your mother, about her request to stay in my home while her apartment is renovated.  I informed her that I do not think it wise - not because I do not wish for her to be in my home, but because of your constant internet harassment.  The devil comes to destroy long established relationships, indeed - relationships that preexisted your birth.  While you do his bidding, I can only imagine if your mother fell or something happened to her while in my home - what a terrible campaign of smear and threats against me there would be.  However, there are legal ramifications that may result against you, in that I know my sister does not, in fact, approve of your behavior.   You are acting outside of the scope of your responsibilities and should be dealt with accordingly.

Journalism is a method of inquiry and literary style that aims to provide a service to the public by the dissemination and analysis of news and other information. Journalistic integrity is based on the principles of truth, disclosure, and editorial independence. Journalistic mediums can vary diversely, from print publishing to electronic broadcasting, and from newspaper to television channels, as well as to the web, and to digital technology.

In modern society, the news media is the chief purveyor of information and opinion about public affairs. Journalism, however, is not always confined to the news media or to news itself, as journalistic communication may find its way into broader forms of expression, including literature and cinema. In some nations, the news media is still controlled by government intervention, and is not fully an independent body.

In a democratic society, however, access to free information plays a central role in creating a system of checks and balance, and in distributing power equally amongst governments, businesses, individuals, and other social entities. Access to verifiable information gathered by independent media sources, which adhere to journalistic standards, can also be of service to ordinary citizens, by empowering them with the tools they need in order to participate in the political process.
