Plaintiff’s alleged that Defendant had taken loans from Trustor by fraudulently claiming nonexistent illnesses and disabilities to gain sympathy and by taking advantage of Trustor’s lack of capacity. Defendant showed that the Defendant’s illnesses and disabilities existed and were supported by medical reports, that the money transfers were gifts and not loans, and presented a Board-Certified Neurologist Expert Witness report showing that the Trustor had capacity at the time the gifts were provided to Defendant. The case settled at Court Ordered Mediation (Alternative Dispute Resolution) with a mutual release of all claims, neither party paying the other party any money, and each party covering their own attorney fees.
