From the time Judge Reardon appointed Lipsitz as conservator over Ruth, Lipsitz endeavored to isolate Ruth from the persons she most wanted to have in her life. Lipsitz isolated Ruth from her favorite son Michael Nedderman since October 2017. Lipsitz isolated Ruth from her friend and caregiver Chantay Hernandez since April 2018.
In 2012, Kennett Taylor reported crimes perpetrated against his wife, Elinor Frerichs. (Conservatorship of Elinor Frerichs, Case Number RP12615698). Oakland Police Department gave the standard response.
That’s a civil matter. You’ll have to get an attorney.
In 2014, human rights advocates reported that Elinor was imprisoned and isolated since 2012. Advocates reported that Licensed Professional Fiduciary (professional conservator) Scott Phipps used Elinor’s own assets to perpetrate abuse. Oakland Police Department’s Officer Vierra refused to take a report.
On September 12, 2014, Judge Sandra Bean stripped Elinor Frerichs (then 92) of her right to have contact with family, friends, clergy, human rights advocates, or friendly visitors. With the stroke of a pen, Judge Bean took away rights that most Americans take for granted.
In 2018, Elinor resides at Lakeside Park, a locked dementia facility in Oakland. Elinor’s conservator denies Elinor contact with the outside world. Elinor’s estate pays Lakeside Park, conservator Scott Phipps, and a cadre of attorneys who sought the court order authorizing imprisonment and isolation.
