Dear friends, My elder mother, Kingsley Hubby, residing in East Lyme CT, has suffered relentless exploitation, enabled by lawyers who didn’t see Mom was their client. In deference to the powerful, the courts refused to apply state law for Mom’s protection – a violation of the US Constitution. Freed from law, folks without moral codes fired loving caretakers, let Mom’s estate go to the dogs, displaced her doctor son as health agent, and forced meanness into a once peaceful life.

Please share my appeal with your contacts.
With hope for Connecticut’s future,
