Armistead v. Fortune Fidelity Bank

Armistead v. Fortune Fidelity Bank

In this elder law case, Wendy Carmichael, the plaintiff, alleges that the defendant, Fortune Fidelity Bank, unlawfully converted funds belonging to her great-aunt, Abigail Armistead, for whom she was appointed conservator. The facts involve a simple joint bank account that Armistead opened with her realtor, Joe Wasterland, for the purpose of cashing and depositing a large check representing proceeds from the sale of a parcel of land. The plaintiff alleges that the great-aunt either lacked capacity or was the victim of exploitation by a much younger man at the time of this transaction. This case illustrates the litigation issues involved in attempting to achieve civil redress for victims of elder financial fraud and exploitation.
