Free showings of guardianship fraud documentary slated in March

Life After 50

“The Guardians,” a documentary by Billie Mintz, describes the journey of about a dozen victims of fraudulent guardianships from 2013-2017 in Las Vegas, Nev.

The movie highlights the pattern and practice of estate trafficking within the predatory legal community to financially exploit the vulnerable through the dysfunction of these courts, according to the website

Two free showings of the film, along with a panel session, are schedule for 3 p.m. March 13 at the Colorado Springs Senior Center, 1514 N. Hancock Ave. and 3:30 p.m. March 15 at Central United Methodist Church, 4373 Galley Road.

The film is presented by Rick Black, director of the Center for Estate Administration Reform (CEAR). Advocate Julie Park will host the showings, and directors of CEAR Terri Black and Athena Roe, along with radio host and found of Families Against Court Embezzlement Unethical Standards Luanne Fleming will be panelists.

No judge, attorney, or guardian would ever admit exploitation was being fostered by the court’s allies as 1,000s were targeted over 30 years, the website says.  What was uncovered in Las Vegas is routine nationwide, the only question is to what degree.

In an unfolding saga that reaches to the top level of government, a growing number of Las Vegas victims come together to seek justice, restitution and freedom.  Through their fight, the film exposes the scope of the systemic abuse of some of the most vulnerable members of our society.
