Laughton Conservatorship Article A Vendetta

Dear Mr. Deane
I continue to be amazed that you and the Coastal Post continue to publish inaccurate and clearly biased articles written by Terri Alvillar. I would think that having two lawsuits pending against you-the Coastal Post and Ms. Alvillar-would cause your paper to seriously consider the contents of these articles before publication.
The question here is why would you publish an article such as this? Why would your paper consider an article concerning a very tragic case which occurred over six years ago relevant? Why would Ms. Alvillar want to revive a matter which obviously caused such great stress, pain and grief to this family?

The answer is quite simple and obvious to everyone but the Coastal Post: Through her bias of retrospection, Ms. Alvillar is using the Coastal Post as a platform to continue her personal vendetta against the Conservatorship process, Margaret Boyden, the Marin County Superior court, and others. Ms. Alvillar writes about current and past Conservatorship cases, and adjusts the histories and facts of those cases to make the content relevant to what she perceives to be a wrong perpetrated in her father's case. What I don't understand is why you continue to allow her to do so.

To set the record straight for the last time, Margaret Boyden's involvement in the Fitzgerald case (Ms. Alvillar's father) consisted of two telephone calls: One from Attorney Nancy Field asking Mrs. Boyden if she would accept the position of Conservator if appointed by the Court, and the other advising Mrs. Boyden that the matter would not be going forward, period. At no time did Mrs. Boyden attempt to conserve Mr. Fitzgerald against his wishes. Ms. Alvillar continues to discount this verifiable information in favor of her inflated perception of the events surrounding the Fitzgerald case.

It is true that Ms. Alvillar called the undersigned as well as others, for an interview concerning the Laughton case. I declined that interview because Ms. Alvillar has a history of inaccurate reporting of the facts, as more specifically outlined in my published demand for retraction in the Greenberg Estate of March 14, 2005. More importantly, however, a fiduciary has a duty of confidentiality to his or her clients.

Ms. Alvillar continues to state that Conservator and Guardian abuse is "rampant." Until Ms. Alvillar attends and completes the legally mandated educational requirements in Fiduciary Management at California State University at Fullerton, her opinion continues to be a limited repertoire of useless information. The fiduciary process affords protection of the assets and persons of the citizens involved.

I sincerely hope that you will consider the contents of this letter seriously, and publish it in the same place of prominence as the article by Ms. Alvillar.
