This is a link to the original trust which names myself as the Trustee.
Below is page from Dad's 1996 Trust naming myself as trustee:
Below is a letter composed by Dad's long time friend Wes Stewart in June of 2005, addressed to Elizabeth Meek, an insight into events which took place during his final days. During the Evidentiary Hearing in July of 2010 we submitted the letter as evidence however Elizabeth's attorneys objected and Judge Derrick H.M. Chan in Hawaii would not allow the letter to be admitted.
Below is a page from Goodsill Anderson - Law Firm for Bank of Hawaii showing conversations comparing the 1st Amendment signed in Hawaii to the one supposedly signed in California to ascertain it's reliability
Forensic Specialist Reed Hayes Forensic Report on 1st Amendment stating the signatures are forged
Elizabeth admitted during the Evidentiary hearing in July of 2010 she DID NOT sign the 1st Amendment in California. And the signatures on the document were not her's or my father's.
Attorney Robert Jones Affidavit prepared by Bank of Hawaii, executed by Jones and filed November 2005 declaring the 1st Amendment was signed TWICE (in Hawaii and three days later in California) Later we obtained a copy of the document supposedly signed in California and the signatures were indeed fraudulent, there were no numbered pages or notarization. It would appear Mr. Jones was caught in a lie. This of course makes us question the validity of the 1st Amendment executed in Hawaii. We know there was a 1st Amendment signed in Hawaii, evidenced by the Notary page obtained from Susan Strong, Notary for Bank of Hawaii. However we allege the 1st amendment was probably a few pages long and not the 22 page document which appeared AFTER dad died. Yet another document Judge Derrick Chan would not allow us to admit as evidence.
Below is a letter entered into evidence by Cades Shutte at the Evidentiary Hearing. What is questionable about this letter is we didn't see it until the closed evidentiary hearing in July of 2010 and we suspect it was created by Jones AFTER our father died. Notice he requests Dad provide him with a the original 1st Amendment as he doesn't have a "signed copy" in his office. The letter is dated September 17, 2003. If Jones didn't have a signed copy in his office then who provided the Bank of Hawaii with the signed, later determined to be forged signatures? This letter conflicts with what he alleges in his 2005 Affidavit which states Dad signed the 1st Amendment AGAIN in his office in September of 1997.
Another Letter also submitted by Cades Shutte as evidence at the July 2010 closed evidentiary hearing, dated September 10, 1997, unsigned by secretary Cindy Hemming, outlining the enclosure of the 1st Amendment to be signed in Hawaii. If Dad was going to be in Jones' office in Atascadero a few days later, why would Dad have Attorney Jones send a copy of the 1st Amendment for signing in Hawaii? We don't dispute there was a 1st Amendment however it was probably only a few pages and not the 22 page unnumbered document which re-wrote the trust. Our investigator spoke with Cindy Hemming who cannot recall the 1st Amendment however she agrees they would not have sent a 22 page 1st Amendment, instead they would have written another Trust. The letter is unsigned and Ms. Hemming was adamant that she would not have sent a document as crucial as a re-written trust without signing the cover letter. And the letter indicates including a notary acknowledgement. The document provided by Mr. Jones and signed in Hawaii has the word Atascadero crossed out and Honolulu written in.
This letter below was precluded by a letter we sent to Elizabeth in August of 2004 inquiring as to why she wasn’t returning our phone calls, was she alright etc. Again we had never had cross words with her. Notice Attorney Jones states she doesn’t feel comfortable communicating with myself or Melvin, he doesn’t mention Lola. During questioning at the Deposition held in May of 2010 Elizabeth stated she did not contact us after Dad died because we had left nasty messages on her answering machine. That is a lie. She also stated she would not communicate with us because we had placed defamations on the internet. This was a lie as well, as we did not post anything on the internet until March of 2006 and only out of frustration over not having any direct communication with her. And also being left in the dark by the Bank of Hawaii as well as her attorneys as to what was happening with the estate.
Our Motion for Discovery (which later turned into a Motion to Compel for Discovery due to the reluctance of Cades Shutte to provide us documents requested) was denied by Judge Hirai and yet the Motion for Discovery filed by Cades Shutte was upheld.
Elizabeth Meek's Deposition taken by myself. (notice her attorneys object to every other question that is asked.)
We have documentation reflecting the Bank of Hawaii had knowledge of sales of several of dad’s properties including one of his condos at Waipuna sold for over $600,000 and yet the tax returns filed four years late reflect the property was only worth approximately $300,000. The billing statements also reflect several conversations in 2005 between Bank of Hawaii discussing the questionable validity of both the 1st Amendments.

2008 Legal expenses by Elizabeth's attorneys. Documented by East West Wealth Management accountant Francis Lui-Kwan over $43,000 in legal expenses for 2008. Preparing the accounting Francis Lui-Kwan charges over $17,000 each year. Ms. Kwan previously worked for Bank of Hawaii and was working for the bank in 2004 when our litigation began.
Bank of Hawaii acceptance of Co-Trustee - Hearing March 2005 and granted by Judge Tangeman:
NOTICE OF APPEAL filed October of 2010 (our Appeal was denied after we were unable to pay $3,000 the court demanded of us to proceed. We did obtain the court CD recordings from the Evidentiary Hearing however they demanded we pay $3,000 to obtain the typed transcripts or we could not proceed with the Appeal. I was told later the $3,000 fee demand was not part of the appeals protocol. So why were we asked to pay the money?
Request by Cades Shutte to SEAL the Accounting of the Estate filed April 2011 (if there is nothing to hide why did they ask to have the accounting sealed?) Judge Derrick Chan approved the request
