    Some Judges are not following the laws that are already in place. They ignore the least restrictive alternative, They wont hear testimony from the families side. There is no evidence against the applicant yet a public guardian will nearly always be placed over the ward. Most cases are based on hearsay by atty ad litems and court investigators. There is no one to contest or give sworn testimony at the hearing. The hearing is a sham. What hearing? All decisions have been made by the court before the hearing. Then when their is a complaint about the court appointed public guardian the judge will just ignore it as if it never was. Judges work for us they should be accountable to us. Judges are not Gods and should not be protected as if they are Gods. When a judge knowingly and willingly breaks the laws then they should be held accountable by any means legally or civil or both. The wards are treated worse than criminals under the pretense of protecting and manintaining. This is a sorry way of population control. Judges have the power over life and death of our most vulnable population. There is no power in taking the life of the helpless. Yet these type of judges do just that. We need some sort of board made up of ordinary citizens who have no connections to the courts, guardianship, attys etc. A board who will hold a non law abiding judge accountable to the people they work for. A court is a people court not a judges court.

    State courts have failed time and time again to protect wards of the state from their court-appointed “protectors” who misuse the system and unjustly enrich themselves at the expense of and to the detriment of the very people they are supposed to be protecting.

    Clearly federal intervention is needed to protect vulnerable elderly and/or disabled wards; and NASGA (National Association to STOP Guardian Abuse) has asked for it in its white paper, “An Open Letter to Congress and the White House.”

    This is everybody’s problem because after court-appointed fiduciaries have depleted their wards’ assets, those wards are then dumped on to the Medicaid rolls at taypayers’ expense for the remainder of their lives. The fiduciaries get rich while the wards — and the American taxpayers – get the shaft.

    Forewarned is forearmed!

    With this report from the GOA, all who have brought forth their complaints to the GOA, should be told if their complaints helped make this decision. Also the GOA, should do their job and extend their scope of authority and make right all the wrongs done to the victims and their families, by holding accountable the judges, attorneys, and court appointed guardians, who have administered abuse on our loved ones.

    The report mentions that a Texas judge allowed the will of an elderly woman to be changed, naming the judge, his ex-wife, personal CPA, and personal attorney as well as others, as beneficiaries of the wards will. This same judge, the same players, were all on my loved ones case, the out come of our cases were that the judge's pals walked away with EVERYTHING, and they refused to pay for a funeral for my father-in-law, from money from the sale of my in-laws homestead. They even took this money, after placing them on Medicaid for the state to pay for them.

    Now I am wanting to know why the GOA, knowing that this is going on all across the US, will not do anything to hold accountable these courts and it's appointed?

    I think what is need here are for the vicitms family to come together, connect to this cause and ALL work toward a REAL solution! Leaving it up to Congress and to the GAO is not enough. I truely believe change only happens when people unite in a common cause. Start taking names of victims and their families, emails, and phone numbers so they can contact each other. Even if it takes a protest. It is their Civil right. Work together toward ending the abuse !!
