If this woman lived in Greenwich, why was the Probate Judge who decided the issue not the Greenwich Probate Judge? How about giving us some real details in this case? What was the relationship among the people involved? Sounds a bit like the Astor case, but we would never know from this story.

AG Rubber Face is such a media hooker. Looking for that quick headline for political advancement. The Probate Judge is log rolling for a future politcal favor. If the AG's office was not involved, this estate would have passed w/o any issues. AG put political pressure on the pansy probate judge, and in turn, two (2) smart investors lost $700 in equity.

Its disgusting. Richard "Dick" Bloomenthal sounds like the biggest phony out there.

"Two smart investors?"
You mean two lowdown snakes in the grass. They should be dragged into court to explain their actions just like Anthony Marshall.

I hope they both get time. Alfano did nothing for me when I first filed my taxes with him. Some part-time idiot did them, and I'm sure David never reviewed them. When I went to pick them up they were "so sorry, the credit card swipe is not working." I could either pay in cash or be late to file! My taxes were being held hostage! Have now resolved the issue with a previous accountant...recieved a refund due, etc. Don't go there!

I couldn't agree more. I hope people see this and find another accountant. I'm sure this isn't the first person he ripped off.

Mark Lovallo and David Alfano should pay a fine and possibly do jail time. Thank you Attorney General Blumenthal for saving this elderly woman's estate from these predators. Blumenthal should now look to have Alfano's accounting license revoked and have Caruso removed as a probate judge.

Mr.'s Lovallo & Alfano - should go before a judge and if found guilty should lose what ever licences they hold. Then following this, they should be sued by the estate with all proceeds going to the estate.

If this women died in 2005, why has it taken all this time to be recognized? Did Blumenthal actually talk to the elderly woman before she died? This story sounds to be like a press junket--Blumenthal is looking for a little attention. His quotes seem as if he is the one to have personally stopped all this from happening, when in truth he probably had no idea what has going on until someone told him the story would be good press. Plus, what was the relationship of the men with the elderly woman? This story is ridiculous.

Didn't Mrs. Johnson, may she rest in peace, have a living Will? Whose on the board of the Embroiderers Guild Madame LaFarge,Esq? The winds of Brooke Astor and NYC have arrived. Instead of a buyers market, we have, as the the saying goes, charity begins at home.

These responses deflecting the attention to Blumenthal have to be written by the criminals Alfano or Lovallo. Who else would not see that to two guys intended on ripping off an old lady with no family? Simply put these two guys are scum.

Mark Lovallo finally got cough. And I am so happy someone is taking action about it...ha, ha don’t mess with charity. I guess he ignored the poor lady and the fact that she Donated to Charity . This is not surprise to me Mark will do it to anyone that would allow him it to their home. He should be ashamed of himself

"Have arrived"? They have been here for a long, long time. The elderly are very vulnerable. Wills, living wills, directive, guardianships, conservatorships can cost a fortune and not even accomplish what the person intended. And it can be very easy for unscrupulous people to take advantage; and then very expensive and time-consuming to undo.

Cut Dick some slack on this one. The shame is that the article does not even hint at how big a problem this sort of thing is.

you should all shut up and get your stories straight before you make such accusations. Laverne...I hope you go straight to hell for your accusations. You know mark lovallo? You don't know your head from your ass!
I wish I could personally give you all a slap in the face, but I would never sink to your level. The only thing I hope for is Karma, so that one day you all know what it's like to have the Greenwich Time disrupt your life!

If ... I said IF ... someone takes advantage of an elderly person, touch $#!t if they get their lives disrupted by the Greenwich Time. That should be the least of their worries.

If Blumenthal was actually a "good guy" this wouldn't even be in the news or known about. Just another media trick to hide that he is Connecticuts biggest crook. Who signs the road contracts? He does! Who gives the O.K. on State business? He does! Who runs his own agenda on the states dollar and then pays his friends to do the states work? He does!!
