ABC7’s First Investigative Report:
We’re told to protect our assets with things like living trusts and wills. But a case in Santa Clara County is raising questions about when our plans can be changed by someone else, possibly against our wishes.
In early February, 85-year-old Grace Alaimo was in a Santa Clara superior courtroom surrounded by people arguing over what she wants.
An ABC7 News I-Team investigation uncovered a Bay Area county violating a federal regulation. Now, the county is changing policy and moving a woman back into her home. The I-Team’s Dan Noyes has the results of his investigation.
Note: We felt ABC did such a great job investigating the Santa Clara County Public Guardian, we wanted to post those excellent reports again:
