The petition to determine title in the conservatorship of Lois Risse will be heard at 10:30 am in Department S16P (Hangin Judge Welch’s court) this coming Thursday, August 9. We will be out again with many more numbers than the last time we protested in front of this court in June.
The issue at hand here is that Risse’s conservator, Melodie Scott, is seeking to overturn a deed of sale which was duly notarized nearly thirty years ago, when Risse was a spring chicken in her early seventies. She sold her home in Yucaipa to a friend, Glenn Neff, with the understanding she could live in the house for the rest of her life. Neff has been maintaining the house and also paying the insurance.
Fast forward to 2012 and Risse is now conserved. Conservator Scott wants that house returned into the conservatorship so that she can bleed the money out of the house in a reverse mortgage, to pay for her services.
We all need to pay attention to this case. It is truly precedent setting.
We plan to gather at the courthouse around 9 am. Kevin will be bringing some picket signs; but if you want to make your own, that would be great. When the hearing begins at 10:30 am, you are all encouraged to file into the courthouse and attend. The vampiric Ms. Scott needs to understand that her infinite greed will not be tolerated by the residents of San Bernardino County.
After the demonstration in June, Keith and Kevin presented on more than one occasion in front of the San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors concerning the continued violations of law happening in SB County Probate court. We are making some waves and we need to keep the pressure on.
Tell your friends! This is a peaceful, family-friendly event.
The courthouse is located at 351 N. Arrowhead Ave, San Bernardino CA 92415
