Al Katz

Editor's note: Yes, Beverly, The Probate Court of Cook County also has its own corrupt variation of accounting methods. Example: Sykes, Wyman, Tyler and Gore cases.  Lucius Verenus, Schoolmaster,

Some of you recognize my Dad, Al Katz, who lived in Lawrence Township as a hard-working American from 1956 until he passed away seven years ago, on July 11, 2010.  Next to Dad’s photo, taken by one of the classroom teachers in schools where he lectured, is a hand-made card of appreciation from one of the thousands of students whose lives Dad inspired by sharing his experiences in Nazi slave labor for seven years.  My Dad was a Holocaust hero during the Holocaust, helping to save the lives of his fellow prisoners, and a Holocaust hero after the Holocaust, speaking with students in scores of schools about the horrors he had experienced, in order to build a safer world for them.

Watch for the upcoming movie, OUTRAGE: The Al Katz Story, which tracks Dad's life from Nazi Germany to forced guardianship and to the Indiana probate court, where Al Katz's insolvent estate is still being litigated, more than seven years after he passed away, by estate attorney and Personal Representative Robert W. York, a long-time adversary of Al Katz's family members, whistleblowers of serious child abuse whom Robert York wished to silence.  


Tragically, Dad’s home at 4727 North Ritter Avenue in Lawrence Township, Indianapolis, Indiana 46226, is currently involved in an estate conflict, which will take place on July 21, 2017, in Marion Superior Court 13 of the City County Building, 200 East Washington Street in Downtown Indianapolis, at 10:00 AM, before Judge James A. Joven, former President of the Lawrence Township Chamber of Commerce (along with former Vice President James Masur of the law firm of Robert W. York).


Have you ever heard of an estate that has never had any accounting with receipts, bank statements, or financial records produced in over two-and-a-half years?  Have you ever heard of an estate in which administrative expenses for out-of-pocket payments of property taxes, insurance, utility bills, and repairs  are never reimbursed or even given a hearing?  Please attend the hearing scheduled for July 21, 2017, at 10:00 AM, to hear for yourself how Al Katz’s house is being sold with administrative expenses left unreimbursed and no accounting filed by the estate’s attorney and Personal Representative Robert W. York since January 2015.


Pursuant to Robert W. York’s court filings, not one person in Al Katz’s family, including his four beloved great-grandchildren, will ever receive even one dollar of inheritance from him or reimbursement of thousands of dollars in out-of-pocket advances for estate expenses.  Please review the file of this probate case, Cause No. 49D13-1009-ES-040244, noting that motions for reimbursement of estate administrative expenses have been unheard for years and Robert W. York has never been held responsible for refusing to produce his records of the estate’s financial transactions since January 2015, despite the Katz Family’s requests for such records, which requests for an estate accounting were denied by Judge Joven.


Al Katz inspired thousands of students to achieve their dreams, but his dearest dream, to help his great-grandchildren reach their own dreams and potentials, has been extinguished without community outcry.  On behalf of Al Katz’s Family and memory, we ask for your voices in prayer and protest of injustice to this hero to our children... Media welcome ....
