What college did Derek Lurie get his B.S. from? Protect his customers?
Then why did we have to borrow $3200 so that we could pay our taxes and not lose our house. In 2009, we were both retired. This set us back so far. All of us writing on this forum are disgusted. But when you are retired and you no longer have the income coming in it is like a shock to the head and a punch to the stomach. This July I will be 71 and in December my husband will be 80. I just want to thank all of you for being nice and not bringing up any ethnic remarks.

Derek Lurie, you are responsible for the actions of your company . You thought because you are rich you could buy your way out with your expensive and probably sleazy lawyer. And , Arlene , I doubt he went to college .

I hung out with derek after college and dated him briefly until he hit me. I am hope Karma prevails and child services comes in and takes his child and his coke head gfs children away. I heard that his girl friend Stacy has quite the reputation as well. Drug addict chose Derek over her 3 kids who the cops had to come to their house numerous times. Feel bad for anyone that associates with such bad people. CHILD SERVICES Do your job not just in the poor neighborhoods. Bad parents with drug problems are everywhere even in the northshore. I can only imagine what the holidays looks like and the Siegel / Luries houses
