Too Sick for Court?

The late Brooke Astor's octogenarian son missed a Manhattan court date because of an undisclosed illness that required treatment at Columbia Presbyterian Hospital.

Fred Hafetz, the lawyer for 83-year-old Anthony Marshall, 83, said doctors told Marshall to stay in his upper East Side home for the next few weeks.

Marshall is charged with looting the estate of his mother who died last year.

Well, it's about time there was an indictment here! Hope he lives long enough to enjoy jailtime.

When does greed end?

But there's someone else responsible, too: The courts, for not overseeing what their appointed fiduciaries are doing.
