FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
New York Civil Rights Lawyer Eric Sanders, Esq., of The Sanders Firm, P.C., alleges in a $50 Mil. Notice of Claim filing that Police Officer Blanche O’Neal, was ‘falsely’ accused of forging a property deed in a conspiracy to ‘steal’ her Brooklyn home
New York, September 19, 2016 – O’Neal, is an African-American female appointed to the position of police officer, City of New York (NYPD). According to the claim, O’Neal alleges based upon the bias and corrupt investigation by New York City Sheriff Investigator Theresa Russo and supported by her management, she was falsely arrested on October 19, 2015, for Grand Larceny in the Second Degree, Criminal Possession of Forged Instrument in the Second Degree, Offering a False Instrument for Filing in the First Degree and Perjury in the First Degree.
O’Neal claims she is the owner of 23A Vernon Avenue, which is a 3 family home built in 1899, located in the Bedford Stuyvesant Section of Brooklyn. This area and other similarly situated areas are undergoing significant gentrification with African-Americans and other persons of color losing their homes to unscrupulous Jewish investors, according to the claim. The property have a fair market value of approximately $2 million dollars.
On July 25, 2012, O’Neal acquired title via Bargain and Sale Deed with good consideration ($10,000 USC and to settle a default judgment of $5 million dollars obtained against the Estate of Lillian Hudson, the owner of 23A Vernon Avenue Brooklyn, NY 11206) from now deceased distributee Colie Gallman, Jr, according to the claim. O’Neal claims at the time of the sale, Decedent Gallman claimed he was the SOLE heir of Lillian Hudson’s estate. Immediately after the sale and recording of the deed, O’Neal began to rehabilitate the dilapidated property and remove squatters from the premise.
O’Neal claims since April 2013, ‘Ruben’ and ‘Tom’ representatives of Yotam Michaeli threatened to take her job because they ‘knew people in the Department and DA’S Office’ if she does not sell the property to them.
On July 24, 2014, 23A Vernon Avenue, LLC, Melville, New York, is allegedly owned and managed by Yotam Michaeli, according to the claim. O’Neal claims Mr. Michaeli is a Jewish investor, specifically targeting areas such as Bedford Stuyvesant. O’Neal claims Mr. Michaeli uses governmental agencies, its enforcement powers through biased and corrupt employees’ such as Investigator Russo to in essence ‘steal’ high value real estate properties for pennies on the dollar from African-Americans and other persons of color, according to the claim.
According to the claim, between August 6, 2014, and October 30, 2014, 23A Vernon LLC, filed several false instruments (Quitclaim Deeds) with the New York City Department of Finance claiming they received an interest in her property from distributees from The Estate of Lillian Hudson.
O’Neal alleges on March 16, 2016, three (3) of four (4) criminal charges were dismissed. The sole reaming criminal charge relates to one (1) count of perjury for alleging she owned 23A Vernon Avenue Brooklyn, NY 11206 after filing a burglary complaint. The matter is scheduled for trial on September 21, 2016.
O’Neal claims based upon the actions of the City of New York, and Theresa Russo in collusion with 23A Vernon Avenue LLC and Yotam Michaeli she sustained substantial damages.
“Ms. O’Neal is experiencing her civil rights being trampled upon by government officials, she isn’t alone. Unfortunately, throughout the history of this country, despite laws created to protect one’s civil rights, persons of color continue to experience gentrification with little protection from government agencies. With the filing of this notice and subsequent lawsuit, Ms. O’Neal fully intends to hold these parties accountable for their ‘unlawful’ actions,” says Eric Sanders.
