Guardianships: A Broken Trust

Reporter John Pacenti
by John Pacenti, Palm Beach Post Reporter

Judge Martin Colin is married to guardian Elizabeth Savitt. She manages the lives of seniors who can’t take care of themselves.

With her career choice comes complications … and accusations – her husband’s influence over her lawyers; another judge, his daily lunch companion, approving her fees; and her taking money from the seniors before any judge approves it.

Wow is right. It's a hard series to read, Mr. Pacenti. I mean it's hard because of all the pain. You did a fantastic job and I hope you win a major award.
