Tampa attorney sues national guardianship reform advocate alleging slander, libel
A national advocate for the reform of court appointed adult guardianships has been sued for slander and libel by a Tampa attorney.
Gerald Hemness filed a civil complaint against Richard Black, founder of the Center for Estate Administration Reform (CEAR), in the 13th Circuit Court of Hillsborough County on Jan. 14.
“A lawsuit against an advocate for standing up for the rights of families and individuals in the guardianship racket was inevitable,” said Dr. Sam Sugar, a Florida-based national subject matter expert for attorneys who are fighting guardianships. “Striking back against anyone who doesn’t tow the line is part and parcel of the tactics used to destroy individuals and families.”
