What happened to the videos? Who destroyed them? What will happen to neiman if guilty? is there a case? If the guy died in 2006. why is this Article just now coming out?
I share your curiosity about the conveniently missing video. However, it is not unusual for grieving families to take time to recover a bit from a tragedy before gearing up for a fight. This time is also used for case preparation.

I'm sure, but am not going to air it out here in this forum. Make no mistake, absolutely certain.
The only way that you could really be sure...and I mean really sure that Neiman did not supply the drugs would be if you did and then saw them ingested. Did you? If so, you're right you will be deposed and probably should have already been to the police.

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.
His personal financial statement has nothing to do with what happened and should have no bearing on the events that lead up to his tragic and untimely death. His parents, his money and even his alleged previous behavior do not equal a death sentence because of negligence.

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.
I agree with you that there seems to be a fair amount of deflection here. The case should prove interesting. If I can take time off from work, I may decide to sit in the gallery....if it ever gets that far which in and of itself is a big question. These things usually settle and the real facts get buried. Hopefully, the parents will go for a trial and seek real justice. I'd be in their corner.

It is what it is. Its not difficult to see what is going on, Guy Lewis makes a bunch of phony accusations to get money from someone in a law, suit, if it was about justice, then why not sue for a dollar. Why no arrest, why nothing but the family and their attorneys request for hard cash.

Why not sue for a dollar? Well, because lawyers need to get paid and lawsuits have many types of expenses and a dollar won,t quite cover that nut. Also, since the criminal justice system seems to be unable to deliver justice, the next best thing is money....perhaps you might recall a small matter involving OJ Simpson. The courts were unable to administer justice. The Goldman family sued and won. They didn't; collect much of anything and spent a ton on lawyers, but to this day they have prevented OJ from accumulating any kind of real wealth. Without that civil judgement, OJ would have gotten away with murder and lived the high life without ever looking over his shoulder. The Goldman family shut that down. Did it bring their son back...NO...but it was better than doing nothing at all. So....that is why you don't sue for a dollar in a case like this.....In my opinion of course.

You are in my mind! When I read A Concerned Citizen's last post, OJ was the first case that came to me.

Just to expand, I don't believe the Goldman's were even looking "to shut down" OJ's high life. I think they wanted a guilty verdict in connection with Brown and Goldman on record. I've seen many a case go civil after either losing a criminal case or the state drops charges due to insufficient evidence. The burden of proof in civil isn't as high and any adjudication of guilt on the books is better than nothing.

Maybe Golini's parents are doing the same.

Well, so now we make comparisons between a man whom allegedly repeatedly stabbed and killed two persons with that of a man that did nothing. A life of drugs use, and a life style of using drugs is what is to blame for Golini's death. Sounds like the deflection is now coming from the Golini camp, and a bunch of scorned extorsionists.

Deflection? I think not, as you either did not read all the posts, or just didn't comprehend WHY OJ was mentioned. You're taking things out of context. Perhaps intentionally? FYI: The reference involved a discussion of suing civilly when criminal doesn't go anywhere. Nothing to do with the crime itself.

I AGREE, O.J.'s ALLEGED CRIME, was more persuasive to a Civil jury. In this case, I predict a settlement our of court or a long lost battle for the family of Mr. Golini.

Christopher's abuse of illegal and prescription drugs, and not B.N. is whats is to blame. I think we all should refrain from discussing this anymore, so that Chip can rest in peace. He absolutely LOVED his mother, and I also desire to see her at peace.

Let just say that I grew up with Chris but lost contact with him shortly after high school. I know for a fact that this lawsuit is not about money because his familly is already very well off and very legit. This lawsuit is about the truth and I think most of it is still hidden under the carpet. Brian Neiman has proven that he will lie, deceive, and take advantage of others when the opportunity is there.

Nieman has far from a reputable image. I know for a fact the has employed a spin doctor to help him look legit when in my oppinion he is anything but that. There is no doubt in my mind that any pro Nieman posting is done by that person. Rumor has it that many things in Neimans life are circling the drain these days. Couldn't happen to a more deserving fellow. This lawsuit exposing more of his reprehensible behavior couldn't be more timely. It may not be about money, but since money is all Neiman cares about (he has actually stated that he has no friends) I hope the family gets a pile from him and at the same time makes the general public even more aware of his public nuisance. I recently heard that he moved to Costa Rica......good riddance

I heard from a prosecutor that the Broward County State Attorney is closing the alleged criminal case. A buddy in the Ft. Lauderdale Police Department told me the cops had a hard on to get em charged, but even they cant create enough evidence.

I never thought the criminal case would amount to anyting. If they were going to charge him they would have done so long ago. Hopefully justice will be served through the civil case. Any clue how that's progressing?

People know about Mr Neiman. In 2006 my brother met him at his apt. He was invited by a mutual friend to hangout. He accidently witnessed Mr. Neiman putting stuff in peoples drinks without them knowing. He offered him cash to be quiet.
He wants them messed up so he can take advantage of them and rape them. My brother was later offered cash to come up (500) and have sex with him. He said he only liked Stright guys.
This is not a nice man.

Neiman drugged and raped me. I saw him place GHB into my spagetti dinner. I then observed stars spinning in my head, next thing you know I woke up with $100 dollars next to my head by my pillow. I feel so cheap. He could have atleast given me a tip.

I have heard from multiple people that they know someone that has been raped by Mr. Nieman and now I have heard it from someone who also claims to have been raped. My question is why has this man never been convicted of any sexual assaults? I know Chris Golini was not gay. He was lured to Mr. Neiman's home and then drugged and raped. Why aren't there victims coming forward to the police? Why hasn't Nieman ever been exposed?

I just heard this morning that Neiman fled the country and is somewhere in South America. I have not idea where, but I can't say that the USA will miss him. Hopefully some of this bad stuff will catch up with him wherever he lands.

Knowing the family of the VICTIM personally, it makes me sick to hear all of this talk about Money and Parental Neglect. What all of you are forgetting with this case, is that a boy (barely a man) is dead. His life ended. His life ended in an apartment in Fl and the only person there who could have helped him didn't, he waited, and he let him die. He was a friend of mine, and his family is like my family. Believe me when I tell you, they are not trying to make money, they are ruined over the fact that they lost their son and their lives will never be the same. We should only be so lucky for Mr Neiman to feel the same kind of pain in his own life.

Also, may I add that there is proof that the VICTIM was indeed raped. The VICTIM was not gay. He was drugged and raped by this man who I do not know but it seems this man has done this before. Well, he went a little too far this time and Chris is dead. And Chris's family are suffering the loss of their son.
