Contempt Filed Against City

Dan Harkins, court-appointed administrator of the estate of Donald Staccia Sr., filed a contempt request against the city with the Clark County Probate Court.

Staccia died in 2003. The estate case revolves around whether his son, Donald Staccia Jr., legally had full control over his father's assets, including the right to sell some properties in the downtown hospital area to the city.

The contempt motion says the city hasn't complied with court orders, including to secure the buildings and maintain access to the properties.

Jerry Strozdas, city law director: "We responded to them promptly, so there is no basis for the contempt citation."

The next hearing on the case is scheduled for Feb. 5.

I feel the Executor's pain. We are also dealing with an open probate case since 2003. Ours involves a missing trust held by the Bank & Trust acting as financial guardian.

Despite the obvious predatory nature of the trust, no elder protective agency is interested in examining the issue.

Banks & Trusts own the legislators who write laws in their favor at the expense of ...... us, the American people.

Cozy special interest groups with lobbyists (bribery) and we pay the legislators salaries, perks, expense accounts and their pensions.

Does anyone see anything wrong with this picture?

These things go on and on until the lawyers pockets are well lined.

Why is it the city has an option of not complying with court orders?
