As to the allegations against Mr. Neiman, they are total bullshit. Mr. Neiman is a nice man, and Golini had negatively influenced enough people with his own long history drug use. The parents are trying to condem an innocent person because they failed at parenting and now want to blame someone else for their own short comings. William Golini and Kathleen Golini, where were you while your son was abusing drugs for all these years?

That Golini had a drug problem is not in dispute. Whether Neiman failed to act in a timely manner is what makes this lawsuit valid.

Golin was going to die under a tree, in a bus, in a movie theatre, or perhapse at his own mother's house. When people are asleep, they appear like they are asleep, and Mr. Neiman is not a medical doctor. He does not have the obligation to identify wheather an adverse health condition exitsts or not. Therfore, this law suit is invalid. By the way, is this the way to treat a good samaritan?

Adverse health condition? That's putting "dead" mildly. Presumably, Golini was using drugs at Neiman's place. How good a samaritan can he be to allow this, then not be aware of possible consequences? Plus, the only information I have is what's listed in the article. The claim was that Neiman tried to revive Golini for 1.5 hours prior to calling 911. That's a lot of time, and could prove negligence.

In my opinion, Mr. Neiman is far from a choirboy and anything but a good Samaritan. I could line people up around the block to speak of his behavior and I doubt that the comments would be positive. He has been sued by several former friends and business associates. In my opinion he treats people very badly. He does (or did) have video and audio surveillance in his apartment. I've seen it. He even had cell phone jamming technology installed. I met the guy that installed the systems. That same guy works or worked for Neiman on improving his image mostly through a maze of web pages and articles that he or his associate authored in order to boost Niemans image. Curious how there are no tapes of the evening the Mr. Golini was there. I would be skeptical about believing much of what you read. I am not sure how to determine what is real and what is an illusion. Hopefully the court system will work all this out and Mr. Golini's parents will get the closure they need. This is all just my opinion.

Unfortunately, you either do not know the facts, or you are completely mis-informed.

This is pretty simple, this is about a young man named Christopher Golini whom drugged himself to death (out of view) while his parents ignored outward signs and warnings about their very own sons extensive history of drug use. Talk about negligence.

What makes you so sure that Neiman didn't supply the drugs, and then lure Golini back to his apartment to rape the poor guy and just let him die afterwords to cover up his crime? Were you there? Do you know all the parties personally? Will you be deposed? Have you spoken to the police? I'm not saying that he did any of that, but it certainly is possible. You seem pretty sure about Golini's history. Even if Golini had a drug history (of which I am unaware) it still would not preclude any part of the hypothetical scenario I outlined above. In my opinion this would not be out of character for Neiman.

That young man was an adult, so no longer under the control of his parents. His choices were his, not his parents. And why do you keep deflecting attention to his parents anyways? They certainly weren't at Neiman's apartment when he died.

If you're so "in the loop", why don't you share the facts? Why are Neiman's security tapes missing? How could he have NOT known this young man was under the influence of drugs? Why didn't Neiman inform the 911 operator drugs were involved in Golini's incapacitation?

The lawsuit is all about money,$$$, make no mistake about it. This is not about justice as Guy Lewis said, it's just about money.

I'm sure, but am not going to air it out here in this forum. Make no mistake, absolutely certain.

Have you ever heard of how persons react differently while under stress? The lawsuit is about money, money for Christopher, Money for Kathleen, Money for William, Money for Guy Lewis, Money for Michael Tien. All about the MONEY.

He was an adult, and exersized his own free will to use and abuse drugs. In that regard, perhapse I would agree with you; however, being born with a silver spoon in your mouth, and being able to get away with everthing your entire life, and being properly raised as a child is also a factor in not just this case, but several other cases across America.

Yeah, why is this article coming out now? It must be for the money.

So you've dropped the drugs and moved onto money. Just more deflection.

And even more deflection.

I'll have to disagree on your defining factors of negligence. Whether the kid was a spolied brat, as you imply, or a saint is of little consequence as to whether Neiman acted improperly.

I'm not saying your claims are impossible, or even improbable, only that I feel this story raises a lot of questions. IMO, your posts haven't added anything...only attack the dead man. The defensive posturing raises more questions.

While it is true that for them most part lawsuits are all about money and it is also true that lawyers benefit. However, I find it hard to believe that any parent that lost a child would only be interested in money and not justice. That attitude sounds more like Neiman. If you are a parent then you should be able to relate to this, if not, you probably know people that are and might consult them for an opinion.
