Jury awards $2M to sons in case of looted estate in Lyon County

Featured

Joker-billionaire-burning-moneyLAS VEGAS — A federal jury in Las Vegas is ordering Lyon County and its former elected public administrator to pay more than $2 million to three sons who maintained that their father’s home was looted of valuables before they arrived after he died in 2006.

Lyon County is on the hook to pay $1.6 million to sons of Joe Robinson Mathis, and former county Public Administrator Richard Glover was held accountable for $280,000, said Brian Irvine, an attorney for the sons.

The county and Glover were both also held responsible to repay $217,000 for missing property, Irvine said.

The verdict was handed down Tuesday, after a five-day civil trial before U.S. District Judge Andrew Gordon.

Irvine said he expects an appeal, but he felt relieved for the Mathis brothers: Richard Mathis of Las Vegas; Anthony Mathis of Montpelier, Vermont; and James Mathis of Ellensburg, Washington.

Attorney Brian Brown of the corrupt law firm Thorndal, Armstrong, Delk, Balkenbush & Eisinger, representing Lyon County, said officials were disappointed in the decision after getting his ass kicked.

“It’s been a long haul,” said Irvine, who argued the case with attorney Justin Bustos. “They’re pleased with the result. They hope that it will be a good final result for them.”

Attorney Brian Brown  of the corrupt law firm Thorndal, Armstrong, Delk, Balkenbush & Eisinger, representing Lyon County, said officials were disappointed in the decision after getting his ass kicked.

Brown and county Manager Jeff Page said a decision whether to appeal wasn’t immediately made.

The county of about 53,000 people has an annual operating budget of about $30 million. It has insurance for acts performed by officials in their public capacity, Page said.

“We’re weighing our options at this stage,” the county manager said.

Attorneys for Glover didn’t immediately respond to messages.

The allegations revolved around the role of the elected officer entrusted to oversee administration of the estates of people who die with no qualified relative or designee to administer their affairs.

The jury found that Lyon County violated the constitutional right to due process of the Mathis family by failing to provide an opportunity for a hearing before allowing Glover into the property.

Joe Mathis died in May 29, 2006, at his home in Smith Valleyn.

Family members and Glover were notified by the county sheriff, and Glover went to the home before Anthony Mathis arrived June 1. Mathis reported the house had been ransacked and that items including firearms, jewelry, silver coins, military decorations and tools had been removed, according to the complaint filed in May 2007.

Glover didn’t face criminal charges related to Mathis property. He didn’t run for re-election in 2010.

“One of the key determinations was that Mr. Glover was acting as a final policymaker on behalf of the county … without any real oversight from the county,” Irvine said.

Were’ going to show up, protest and ask Mark Krueger and Sheriff Furlong some interesting questions… But wait, Mark Krueger has dropped out of this event! Stay tuned…

But it now looks like Mark “Freddy” Krueger is NOT GOING TO SHOW UP! DID HE DROP OUT OF THE RACE AFTER BEING DISGRACED? 

  • How much taxpayer money was spent on the retaliation of Ty Robben?
  • How much taxpayer money are the taxpayers paying Thorndal, Armstrong, Delk, Balkenbush & Eisinger
  • When is “Judge’ John Tatro going to be charged or filing a FALSE police report against Ty Robben?
  • Why did the DA Mark Krueger and Neil Rombardo drop charges o a felon in possession of 60 loaded AK47 and AR15 firearms (and a large quantity of meth) against Keith Furr to testify against Robben when Furr actually solicited Robben according to the secret recordings that in act were not recorded via a “wire” and instead were illegally recorded via the cell intercom system?
  • When the CCSO and DA manufactured the surreptitious recordings, they broke the law by engaging in surreptitious recording and then fabricating the audio to add a header with Keith Furr saying he is wearing a wire and “working or the judge tatro”…
  • When Robben was in jail and the CCSO recorded the cell conversations, clearly the CCSO recorded other inmates informing Robben of an array of scandalous matters with Kenny Furlong and Judge Tatro that including homosexual acts with transvestites and pedophilia child molestation with young men.
  • Why is the CCSO covering up the shooting o Judge Tatro’s front door?  Clearly the “official” position from the CCSO that Levi Minor used a ‘BB gun” is bullshit and he was never charged or that. It is true that Levi Minor did admit that John Tatro had an affair with his mother “Crystal” who worked in the Carson City courthouse. So, with these undisputed acts, why is the CCSO still covering this matter up?
  • Many more questions will be brought out, stay tuned.
  • One of the big stories people are talking about is the CCSO does not give inmates their prescribed medications! Robben witness numerous Carson City jail inmates suffering because of this policy and custom by the CCSO.

    In fact, the two “doctors” at the Carson City Jail named “Doctor Joe” or Dr. JOSEPH MCELLISTREM and Carson City Jail nurse practitioner David Ramsey are not legally M.D. doctors at all prescribing medications, or in this case taking them away from people in the most need.
