Alameda County Judge Arrested for Elder Financial Abuse, Perjury

A respected judge who graduated from UC Berkeley’s Boalt Hall School of Law more than 30 years ago has been arrested and charged with elder financial abuse (elder financial fraud) and perjury with respect to a 97-year old woman.

While colleagues and neighbors are having a hard time believing the charges against him, prosecutors claim that Judge Paul Daniel Seeman “waged  a 12-year campaign” to gain control over the assets of the late Anne Nutting. They have introduced documents purporting to show that after he gained power of attorney, Judge Seeman sold two of Nutting’s properties in Santa Cruz, her stamp and coin collection and her Lionel train set. Nutting also loaned Judge Seeman $250,000 for which he defaulted on the payments until after Berkeley Police contacted him.

The perjury charges (11 counts) occurred because Judge Seeman allegedly did not disclose his financial gains as required by law.

Ali Mehrizi, 53, who was Anne Nutting’s husband and is the trustee of her estate, is not considered a suspect, according to Berkeley Police Chief Michael Meehan.
