Marshall Astor

This is a settlement for the Nursing Homes lawsuit.

Rochester, NY: (May-06-07) Brooke Astor, a Park Avenue philanthropist, was in the limelight recently when her grandson Philip, filed an elder-abuse lawsuit against his estranged dad, Marshall, accusing him of embezzling millions of his grandmothers money while skimping on her care. While Brooke fought dementia and depression, her hard-hearted son and social-climbing daughter-in-law flaunted her stolen gems, sold gifts she'd given them, and made the society doyenne think she was so strapped for cash that she couldn't afford a new dress. Philip claimed that Marshall forced her to sleep on a urine-stained couch, cut off her supply of expensive medicines, and refused to buy her new clothing, even on her birthday. In a settlement reached, Marshall and his wife agreed to relinquish guardianship and to return more than $1.35 million in property, art and jewelry, ending the elder care abuse lawsuit.
