Law Firm, Judge Kristin Booth Glen Deny Heart Patient Food
Israel News Agency
York, New York --- December 4, 2012 ... In what appears to be
one of the most perverse twists of justice in New York, a law
firm requested and New York Surrogates Court Judge Kristin Booth
Glen agreed to deny a 60-year-old heart patient his request to
have emergency money from his Trust for food.
60 year-old Israeli-American, who is presently unemployed and
separated from his family in Israel said that decision rendered
by the Surrogate's Court will be appealed.

late father Bernard Leyden for my 'well-being', 'protection' and
to be implemented in 'emergencies' which was totally ignored by
Judge Kristin Booth Glen," said the Israeli-American.
the guise that the Order To Show Cause was improperly served upon
the Trustee Brian Leyden, of Kings Point, New York, Herzfeld &
Rubin did the opposite of what the Trust was created for. I have
been separated from my children and work in Israel for over two
years, I have no income and came to the court under an emergency,
and rather than showing understanding and compassion, the court
has threatened to sanction my attorney for asking the court to
provide money for food."
take heart medicine which regulates my heart, I am under orders
by cardiologists to reduce this life threatening stress and the
reaction of the New York court is not only to deny me emergency
money but slanders me in the process."

emergency money for food as "frivolous".
Israeli-American works as a senior advisor to the Israeli Ministry
of Foreign Affairs and states that he has been the victim of age
discrimination in seeking employment in a deeply recessed US economy.
Israeli-American, who is suing Herzfeld & Rubin for 10 million
dollars for defamation, said that he has been at the scene of
terror attacks in Israel as a border policeman and in all the
years of witnessing Islamic terrorism, nothing compares to the
treatment he has been subjected to by Herzfeld & Rubin.
& Rubin even motioned that I not be granted to appear before
the court again in regards to my Trust, a motion which was denied
by Judge Kristin Booth Glen. But Glen then responded that my attorney
should not be representing me."
attorney for Israeli-American said that Glen's actions were beyond
articulation in that the Judge was actually implying that Israeli-American
be denied legal counsel.
is no victory for either Brian Leyden or Herzfeld & Rubin
in denying me the means to go home and be reunited with my children,"
said the Israeli-American. "The ones being harmed here are
three children of mine who have been living under the threat of
terror missile attacks from Hamas in Gaza. They need money for
food, rent and clothes. They should not be subjected to more suffering."
Kaplan and Amy Altman of Herzfeld & Rubin appeared in court
on behalf of Brian Leyden.
