Twenty-five years ago, the best Medical Malpractice lawyer in Boston, according to Boston magazine, did something so stupid most who know him simply refuse to believe it could be true.
Nevertheless, it is a fact that Atty. Andrew C. Meyer, Jr., founding partner of Lubin & Meyer, P.C., a Medical Malpractice law firm, did with forethought and deliberance cause the loss of my Multi-million dollar Medical Malpractice Trial in the Brockton, MA Superior Court House, with the dis-honorable Judge, Robert L. Steadman, presiding over the fiasco.

Because I could find no lawyer willing to sue Atty. Meyer for me, I did that myself only to be confronted with one corrupt judge after another, making a mockery of our legal system.

Now, the only opportunity left to me to find justice is to ask you, dear readers, “the Court of Public Opinion”, for your assistance.

A while ago,  I completed an eight-part exposé entitled, Malpractice: Medical/Legal/Judicial/Political/ “One Man’s Twenty Year Search for Justice in the Bay State”, detailing my experiences.

This is a sampling from that exposé.

My hope is that a law firm, media outlet, or law enforcement official, will read my story and come forward to help me to prosecute the man who destroyed the last 25 years of my life, Atty. Andrew C. Meyer, Jr.

Thank you for reading my story.

COMPLAINT

Stephen Marmorsterin
            V.                                                                                Insurance Fraud:
George A. Berman, Esq.                                             
(Posternak, Blankstein, & Lund)                                 Intentional Infliction of
                                                                                        Emotional Distress:
Harvey Weiner, Esq.
(Peabody & Arnold)

Manager Legal Malpractice Claims Office
(Hartford Specialty Insurance Co.)

Preface

When a tree falls in the woods and there’s no one there to hear it, does it make a sound?  I contend common sense dictates that it does, and no jury in this land would be swayed by arguments to the contrary regardless of the pedigree and/or credentials of the lawyer making them.

Along those same lines, when a law firm financially injures a client, admits their guilt and demands of their insurer to pay the injured client, does the insurance company have a legal right to deny payment?  Once again, I contend common sense dictates that they do not and a jury of their peers will tell them so regardless of the self-serving arguments to the contrary they make.

In this civil complaint for Insurance Fraud and Intentional Infliction of Emotional Distress, I, the Plaintiff, Stephen Marmorstein, offer proof that my ex-lawyers caused me financial injury, and admitted their guilt by demanding that their insurer pay to me Five Hundred and Fifty Thousand Dollars ($550,000.00), for their acts.

I further offer proof that the insurance company involved, and their agents, the lawyers hired by them to defend against my claim, have through fraud, denied to me the compensation I legally and rightfully deserve.

Hello my friends! Thank you for reading my exposeI am Stephen Marmorstein and you just read the first page of the Legal Complaint I filed against my ex-lawyers’s insurer in 1999.

 

 

Very simply, in 1981, I lost my left leg below the knee because of Medical Malpractice.  Four years later, I lost my Medical Malpractice trial because my ex-lawyer, with forethought and deliberance, chose not to proffer to my jury any of the evidence he possessed against my ex-doctors. 

            Mostly because I made the DVD displayed on the front cover of this expose, which my ex-lawyer does not want to be shown around the world, he demanded of his insurance company to pay to me $550,000.00. 

            With the evidence contained in this expose, my intent is to prove to you that two of the three doctors my ex-lawyer sued were (are) guilty of Medical Malpractice.  My ex-lawyer is guilty of Legal Malpractice, both gross and obvious.  His insurer has fraudulently denied payment to me and, all of the Judges named in this expose, except for the Honorable George N. Covett, are guilty of Judicial Malpractice and/or dereliction of duty. 

            Of course I believe my evidence proves those things, but that is for you to judge.  All I ask for are your honest opinions. 

            Before continuing I have three disclaimers to make:

1)         Events depicted in this expose are not necessarily presented in chronological order.

2)         Most exhibits and letters that are now typewritten were originally submitted to the court or mailed in my own handwriting.

3)         The scripted comments I make before and after the exhibits, etcetera, were added to enhance your understanding.   They were not there for my original readership. 

Okay!  Other than that, everything else you will read and see is the absolute truth.  So says I, Stephen Marmorstein.

Medical Malpractice:

On September 9th, 1981, I had an automobile accident in which the tibia, ankle and thigh bones of my left leg were badly fractured.  My doctor, working out of the Brockton Hospital, hung my leg in skeletal traction for twelve days and then gave me an eight hour operation where he placed pins and screws in my tibia and ankle and a metal rod in my thigh.

For this operation I received no pre-operative, intra-operative, or post-operative antibiotics.  Nor were my wounds irrigated with an antibiotic before closing.  The next day my temperature rose to 106 degrees and I was placed on a hypothermia or cooling blanket.  I laid on that blanket for five days, again, without antibiotics.  Then it was discovered that I had an operative wound infection and I was taken to the operating room where five inches by three inches of my lower leg was cut away including muscle leaving a hole in my leg making my broken bones clearly visible.

Following, is the last paragraph of my Discharge Summary from the Brockton Hospital written on October 27th, 1981, by the doctor who operated on me, Scott M. Harris.

“The patient then asked to be transferred to the Mass General Hospital in Boston.  I felt that considering the fact that he was almost finished with his antibiotic treatment course and he would be discharged shortly, then evaluation as an outpatient would be most appropriate.  The patient persisted in his desire to be transferred and this was eventually arranged.  He was discharged on October 23rd, 1981. “

And, in his deposition Dr. Harris said, “I do not believe there was any lasting damage caused by his infection.”

DR. HARRIS WAS WRONG!

Pathology Report

The pathology report from the Mass. General Hospital showed that three inches of dead bone was removed from my left leg.

In 1989, I submitted to the Court of Robert S. Prince, 64 exhibits which I believe proved my ex-lawyers' gross and obvious legal malpractice and the fact that he committed fourteen counts of perjury in an affidavit he filed with Judge Princes's court. Some of these numbered exhibits are shown throughout this expose.

Legal Malpractice


Some of the things I speak about in my DVD, Attorney Andrew C. Meyer, Jr., my ex-lawyer, 100 City Hall Plaza, Boston, MA, 617-720-4447, didn’t do for me that he should have, and did do that he shouldn’t have.

1.  My leg was amputated for one reason and one reason only, because I had chronic osteomyelitis, bone infection.  At my Medical Malpractice Trial, the words osteomyelitis or bone infection were not used or explained.  My jury was never told that three inches of dead bone was removed from my leg because of chronic osteomyelitis.   This was not an oversight on the part of Attorney Meyer! 

2.  In the “Trial Brief” Attorney Meyer wrote for our trial judge to read before our trial, the words bone infection or osteomyelitis were not used.    This was not an oversight on the part of Attorney Meyer!  However, contained in his Trial Brief was the fact that on the day following my first operation at the Brockton Hospital, I was placed on a hypothermia or cooling blanket because I was running a post-operative temperature of 106 degrees, and stayed on that cooling blanket for five days without antibiotics.  My medical records said I was not placed on that cooling blanket until three days after my first operation.  My medical records were falsified, and my ex-lawyer was given the proof of this crime.  At my Medical Malpractice Trial, my ex-lawyer chose to ignore his own trial brief and went along with my falsified medical records.   This was not an oversight on the part of Attorney Meyer!

3.  Every text book on the subject of osteomyelitis points out in graphic detail exactly what my ex-doctors from the Brockton Hospital did wrong regarding my treatment while I was under their care.  At my Medical Malpractice Trial, neither my ex-lawyer nor my own medical expert witness referred to any of this readily available information.  This was not an oversight on the part of Attorney Meyer!

4.  I and my ex-doctors from the Brockton Hospital underwent questioning in deposition form.  I contend what my ex-doctors said in their depositions proved their negligence with my care and treatment.  At my Medical Malpractice Trial the depositions were not spoken about or eluded to.  It was as if those depositions were never taken.  This was not an oversight on the part of Attorney Meyer!

5.  My roommate from the Brockton Hospital was willing to testify at my Medical Malpractice Trial.  My ex-nurses from the Brockton Hospital could have testified at my trial.  The psychiatric nurse from the Mass. General Hospital in Boston, who was on our witness list and helped me to make the decision to amputate my leg, could have testified at my trial.  And I could have testified as to what happened to me during my hospitalizations.  But, at my Medical Malpractice Trial, I was on the witness stand less than 15 minutes before Attorney Meyer said to me, “Thank you Steve, that is all I have for you.”  And none of the people I just mentioned were even spoken to by my ex-lawyer.  This was not an oversight on the part of Attorney Meyer!

6.  Dr. Mark Gephardt, now at Children’s Hospital in Boston, the man who amputated my leg at the Mass. General Hospital, knew why he amputated my leg.  But he was not deposed by Attorney Meyer.  In fact, at my Medical Malpractice Trial he was asked only two questions by him.  They were, “Could Stephen Marmorstein’s leg have been saved?” To which he replied, “I think so.” And, “What was the cause of Mr. Marmorstein’s amputation, the infection (not bone infection) or the extent of his injuries caused by his automobile accident?”  To which Dr. Gephardt replied, “Both.”  And to those answers my ex-lawyer said, “Thank you doctor, that is all I have for you!” I contend my ex-lawyers failure to adequately question the man who amputated my leg was a deliberate act on his part! 

In my DVD I speak about much more my ex-lawyer did wrong at my Medical Malpractice Trial.  But, it seems to me, what you’ve just read adds up to gross and obvious legal malpractice!

Does anyone disagree?  Can anyone disagree?

P.S.  A fact not included in my video.  Ten days before my Medical Malpractice Trial, Attorney Meyer asked my ex-doctors insurer to settle my case for Two million, one hundred thousand dollars.  In the three years that he handled my case that was the first and only time he asked for a settlement offer.  That was also the same day he filed a Motion with the court to withdraw from my lawsuit, because I told him I did not think we were ready to go to trial and asked for a postponement.  Being hell-bent on following through with his plan to lose my lawsuit however, he changed his mind, did not withdraw, and successfully lost my Medical Malpractice Trial!

Attorney Meyer, if you cannot deny the things written in these two pages, don’t you think it’s about time you compensate me for your crime?

Did my ex-lawyer tell Judge Prince the truth? Well, he said nothing about my high temperatures. Nothing about cooling blankets. Nothing about osteomyelitis. Nothing about debridements. Nothing about three inches of dead bone being removed from my leg at the Mass. General Hospital. Nothing about another 15 operations and what they were. Nothing about a psychiatric nurse at the Mass. General Hospital who helped me to make my decision to amputate. And, nothing about what was said in the depositions. No! I'd say he did not say anything even approaching the truth!

It should go without saying that had Judge Steadman not cancelled our meeting, he would have had to give to me another trial or tell me to sue Attorney Meyer, because he would have had to admit the words osteomyelitis or bone infection were not spoken about nor explained by anyone at my trial.

Stenographer's Rule of Thumb

I didn’t know this at the time, but the Court Stenographer’s rule of thumb is fifty pages an hour or at most three hundred pages a day.  My trial was three full days and two partial days.  At most, my trial could consist of no more than twelve hundred pages of testimony.  This is a factoid that is irrefutable.

Dear Juliet:

I received your estimate of $2,750.00 (Two Thousand Seven Hundred and Fifty Dollars) for your three days transcription of my trial.  You know I don’t have that kind of money.  It also seems to me and other transcribers I have talked to, that your estimate is about 5 (five) times too high.

Juliet, Mary Stanton told me the going rate is $1.25 (One Dollar and Twenty-Five Cents) a page.  I am able to pay that.  Please send me and itemized bill.

You know how stifled I have been by “The system” in my attempt to realize justice.  Please don’t add to my problems.

With no offense intended,

Sincerely,

However, just like Judge Prince, Judge Ball was either playing stupid or had read none of the evidence I submitted to her Court!

Dear Justice Ball:

I am having a hard time believing it happened to me twice.

Judge Prince threw my Complaint against Attorney Meyer out of court without reading it, and you followed suit with my Complaint against his insurer! 

Well, taking solace from the words of William Shakespeare, who wrote, “Wise men never sit and wail their loss, but cheerily seek how to redress their harms.”  I put together the enclosed expose. 

I intend to see it published, made into a movie or spread across the world wide web. 

For yourself, I hope you read it and are caused to think of a way to undo your mis-deed before you become not just famous, but infamous.

On 2/19, Judge Ball returned my expose saying she couldn’t have “ex-parte” communication with me.  However, ex-parte means not being allowed to speak with a party to an ongoing lawsuit without the other side being informed.  Where in 2008, I no longer had an ongoing lawsuit with her as my judge, her “excuse” for not reading my expose was just plain dishonest.

Dear Attorney McDonough:

I can only assume receiving part one of my exposé came as a shock to you.  In a million years, would you have thought your friend and partner, Drew Meyer, was capable of deliberately losing a Medical Malpractice Trial?  Well, now that you know that he did that, your silence regarding that fact will not do much to enhance your professional reputation when this matter is brought to light with the general public. (What did you know and when did you know it?)

There is one more thing I want you to know.  That is, how many people George Berman has involved in his scam to save your insurer some money. 

If you will read the enclosed, you will know.

EPILOGUE



Since I started legal action against my ex-lawyer, Attorney Andrew C. Meyer, Jr., and his insurer, The Hartford Specialty Insurance Co., I have had at least nineteen opportunities to find justice within our Massachusetts legal system.  Here, in chronological order, are those occasions:

1)  November, 1986:  Two years before I filed my Legal Malpractice Complaint against Attorney Meyer, I gave to my Medical Malpractice Trial Judge, Robert L. Steadman, the Documentary Medical Evidence I easily found at the medical library Attorney Meyer ignored at my trial, which would have proven my ex-doctors from the Brockton Hospital guilty. After reading it, Judge Steadman canceled a scheduled meeting with me and refused to speak with me again.  Three weeks later, I was arrested for picketing him.  These incidents are contained in part 3 of my expose.

2)  February, 1988:  Nine months before filing my Legal Malpractice Complaint against Attorney Meyer, I filed my first Complaint to the Board of Bar Overseers.  I contend my Complaint was whitewashed by then, Attorney Dermot Meagher, who was later appointed to a judgeship.  The entire record of that Complaint is contained in part 2 of my expose.

3)  June, 1988:  Five months before filing my Legal Malpractice Complaint against my ex-lawyer, once again, I petitioned my Medical Malpractice Trial Judge, Robert L. Steadman, to help me to buy a transcript of our medical malpractice trial.  I challenge anyone in this world to tell me his response to my plea was in any way legitimate.  These letters are contained in part 3 of my expose.

4)  December, 1988: One month after filing my Legal Malpractice Complaint against Attorney Meyer, his lawyer, Attorney George A. Berman, wrote to me saying Attorney Meyer and his partners have no objection to the settlement of my claim against them for any amount the insurance company deems appropriate.  Because to this day Attorney Berman can find no lawyer, including himself, willing to say Attorney Meyer is innocent of my charges against him, I think Attorney Berman had a moral obligation to proffer to me some kind of a reasonable settlement offer.  His letter is contained in part 5 of my expose.

 

5) September, 1989:  After reading the “26 things my ex-lawyer didn’t do for me” flyer, (Exhibit 16) I have been handing out since 1986, Brockton Superior Court Judge George N. Covett turned to the lawyer representing Attorney Meyer’s insurer and asked, “What do you have to say about this?”  Possessing no evidence with which to refute my claims, the lawyer gave a bewildered look, shrugged his shoulders and said nothing.  Judge Covett then said, “Well, these allegations look gross and obvious enough for me, so I’m marking this case down for trial on November 15th.”   Because that is what happened, I contend Attorney Meyer’s lawyers should have done the honorable thing and made to me a reasonable settlement offer.  This incident is contained in part 5 of my expose.

6)  November 28th, 1989:  Because Attorney George A. Berman, believed Judge Covett’s ruling was wrong regarding the gross and obvious nature of my evidence against Attorney Meyer, he filed a Motion for Summary Judgment arguing this issue once again to another judge,   Robert S. Prince.  I answered his Motion with an eight page Argument in Opposition and attached 64 exhibits which I believe proved my allegations of legal malpractice to be valid.

 

At the hearing on this matter, the Clerk of Court, Mr. John Deady, stood and announced he had lost everything I submitted to the court.  Because of that, I believe Judge Prince should have postponed that hearing until such time as my submissions were found and read or I had provided to him duplicate copies.   Judge Prince didn’t do that, however,  and three months later threw my complaint against Attorney Meyer out of court saying he saw no evidence of gross and obvious legal malpractice and because I had no expert witness to testify at trial, on that technicality, I couldn’t prevail.  This incident is contained in part 5 of my expose.

 

7)  June, 1990:  Copies of my video were received by my Medical Malpractice Trial Judge, Robert L. Steadman, my Medical Expert Witness at trial, Dr. Thomas Goss, and the man who amputated my leg at the Mass. General Hospital in Boston, Dr. Mark Gephardt.  They all chose not to respond to me about it.  I contend had any one of them done so, I believe my lawsuit against Attorney Meyer would have been settled in my favor.  These letters are contained in parts 3 and 4 of my expose.

Also, the Board of Bar Overseers Bar Counsel, Attorney Daniel Klubock, received a copy of my video in June, 1990, as well.  That, I believe, should have prompted him to take some kind of action on my behalf. Instead, he said, there was nothing the Board of Bar Overseers could do for me. His letter is contained in part 2 of my expose.

8)  November, 1990:  After viewing my video, Judge Robert S. Prince, should have realized his decision to throw my complaint against Attorney Meyer out of court was the wrong thing to do, and, in my opinion, should have admitted his mistake.  His letter to me about this is contained in part 5 of my expose.

9)  March, 1998:  My third complaint to the Board of Bar Overseers was filed, which I contend was illegally whitewashed by their General Counsel, Attorney Michael Fredrickson.  This complaint is contained in part 4 of my expose.

10) July, 1999:  After Attorney Meyer’s Demand that I be paid $550,000 was denied by his insurer, I filed my Insurance Fraud Complaint against them which I contend was illegally thrown out of court by Brockton Superior Court Judge, Carol S. Ball.  That complaint with exhibits is part 5 of my expose.

11)  March 24th, 2000:  A Hearing on my Defendants Motions to Dismiss my insurance fraud complaint was held before Judge Ball.  Because ten years earlier Judge Prince had lost my evidence against my ex-lawyer, I filed two Motions saying I wasn’t going to attend any Hearings on this New Complaint until my Hearing Judge had read my Complaint and Exhibits, viewed and/or listened to my Video, and had read my Arguments in Opposition to my Defendants Pleadings.  I believe at best, Judge Ball glanced at my Complaint, but did not read my Exhibits, watch or listen to my Video, nor familiarize herself with my “Objections to my Defendants Pleadings.  The proof for my beliefs is a Transcript of that hearing which is part 6A of my expose.

12) March, 2001:  I filed a Motion to Vacate Judge Ball’s Dismissal of my lawsuit against my ex-lawyers insurer.  I vehemently contend I proved Judge Ball to be just plain wrong about everything she wrote in her Ruling, and for that reason felt my Motion could not be legally denied.  But it was.  That Motion is contained in part 7 of my expose.

13)  December, 2001: After being invited to the Mass. Appeals Court Conference Program by the Chief Justice of the Appeals Court, Christopher J. Armstrong, 100 days after receiving it, Judge Lawrence D. Shubow, told me he had watched half of my Exhibit “A”, my video, and has nothing to say about it.  This incident is contained in part 8 of my expose.

(14)  January 2nd, 2002:  I believe my letter of that date to Judge Shubow and the Coordinator of the Appeals Court Conference Program, Attorney Emily G. Tobin, asking for another conference date could not be morally or legally denied, but it was.  This letter is contained in part 8 of my expose.

(15)  March, 2002:  Chief Justice of the Appeals Court, Christopher J.

Armstrong, received from me a certified complaint regarding the behavior of Justice Shubow and Attorney Tobin. Justice Armstrong chose not to respond to my complaint.  This letter is contained in part 8 of my expose.

16)  June, 2002:  Judge Carol S. Ball refused to give to me a written explanation as to why she denied my Motion to Vacate her Judgment, as it pertained to her Dismissal of my legal complaint against my ex-lawyers insurer.  My Motion for a Written Explanation was filed thirteen months earlier in May of 2001.  These events are contained in part 8 of my expose

(17)  August, 2002:  The Appeals Court denied my Motion for them to Compel Judge Ball to give to me a written explanation as to why she denied my Motion to Vacate her Judgment.  This motion is contained in part 8 of my expose.

(18)  November, 2002 to May, 2003:  The New Insurance Company Lawyer, Attorney Edwin P. Landers, after promising to respond to my mailings and evidence against his clients, reneged on his promise.  These letters are contained in part 8 of my expose.

(19) August, 2004: Thinking there was no way Judge Ball could legally get away with refusing to tell me what reasoning she employed to deny my Motion to Vacate her Judgment, I wrote to our U.S. Attorney,  Michael J. Sullivan,  asking if he thought I received “Due Process of Law”  from Judge Ball.  He refused to answer my question saying it was a State matter.  I then wrote to our Attorney General, Thomas F. Reilly, asking the same question.  While urging me to retain counsel and contact the Commission on Judicial Conduct, Mr. Reilly, also refused to answer my question, saying he cannot give legal advice to private citizens.

……………I suppose it could just be that Paul Salters (Exhibit 57) was right.  Perhaps in the Bay State, justice, does come only with the ring of a cash register.  In my circumstance however, I can only hope he is wrong.

Having seen her on T.V.,  I decided to make one more attempt to find justice within our Massachusetts Judicial System by writing to the Chief Justice of the Supreme Judicial Court, Judge Margaret Marshall.  Please see next page.

February 24th, 2009

Judge Margaret Marshall
Chief Justice, Supreme Judicial Court
John Adams Court House
One Pemberton Square, Suite 2500
Boston, MA 02108

Dear Judge Marshall:

Would you like to learn what’s wrong with our system of Juris Prudence in our State of Massachusetts, and in the process possibly help an average Joe to find justice? 

If your answers to those questions were no, but I will if I have to, and yes, then I have written to the right person. 

The front cover of my expose says a mouthful.  The subsequent following three pages explains what happened, and my epilogue tells you about what you are going to learn. 

I turned sixty a few months ago and I would like this matter to be brought to some kind of a justifiable closure before I die, or the end of this calendar year, whichever comes first.

Will you please read my expose, or delegate someone else to do so, if you are too busy?

Unashamedly, I take full responsibility for my expose and believe it proves all of my claims.

Thank you for your consideration.    Please tell me yes or no. 

 

           

Sincerely,

Steve

 

 

P.S.  Also enclosed is a copy of the Transcript mentioned in number 11 of my epilogue.

Obviously, Judge Lawton didn't realize what he was getting into when he volunteered to read my website, because I have called many times and he has refused to talk to me.  I guess he figures being in my website is less damaging to him that telling the world that our Massachusetts Judicial System is corrupt.  But, I suppose you could ask him that if he'll talk to you.

On January 4th, 2013 I called to speak with Executive Director, Jill Pearson. Attorney Santoro got on the phone and said Executive Director Pearson is no longer with the Commission. We then had a conversation in which I told him I had run out of patience with the commission and if he and the Commission tells me nothing by mid-February, all our correspondences will be going into my website. Please see next letter.

However, five months later I was surprised to receive a letter from their Chairman, Attorney Joseph D. Steinfield. What happened after that follows:

Well dear readers, there you have it.  One man's, hopefully, not feeble attempt to find justice in the State of Massachusetts.

I can still use a lawyer not afraid to "Buck the system," a media outlet willing to tell the awful truth, or a courageous law enforcement official.

If by chance you know of such a person or entity, please tell them about me and my website.

Thank you again for reading it.

Sincerely,
