A wealthy, elderly widow is suing her neighbors, former Broward Circuit Judge Larry Seidlin and his wife, but doesn't seem to know why, according to a deposition transcript.
Barbara Kasler, 84, said under oath Feb. 15 that she liked the Seidlins, gave them gifts and could not remember what they did wrong to her.
A lawsuit filed in Kasler's name says the woman, whose wealth has been estimated at $5 million, is accusing Seidlin of siphoning off her money and trying to hijack her estate upon her death.
State investigators have twice cleared Seidlin, 59, of exploiting Kasler.
"There's nothing alleged in this lawsuit that has not already been fully investigated," one of Seidlin's attorneys, Theo Kypreos, said Friday. "Using Barbara Kasler's own words … they were 'like family.' "
The lawsuit alleges Seidlin feigned friendship with Kasler, who lives in the same Fort Lauderdale condo as the onetime judge and his family, and fleeced her of hundreds of thousands in checks, credit card purchases and the sale of her property.
