Sen. Zaffirini among co-executors facing Webb County civil suit

A civil lawsuit filed Wednesday afternoon in Webb County alleges the three co-executors of a family estate — among them state Sen. Judith Zaffirini, D-Laredo — mismanaged the trusts' assets and ended up wrongfully taking control of “millions of dollars of real property.”

Attorney Carlos Zaffirini, who's married to Judith and is representing all the defendants in the case, called the claims groundless.

“They've been trying to break the trust ... for years,” he said. “Their ultimate purpose is to get the money away from the trustees to squander it and do what they please.”

Rocio Guerra, whose deceased aunt and 98-year-old mother are the namesakes of the Delfina and Josefina Alexander Family Trust, is suing co-executors Zaffirini, Clarissa Chapa and David Arredondo, alleging they didn't “fulfill their duties to Delfina and the beneficiaries of her estate,” among other things.

1. Ah, family.

What would we do without family?


Well, sleep better at night if you have some like mine.

Love 98%, but that 2% is rough!

4. 2%? Please....

Heard a funny joke. Federal law is going to prohibit the use of guinea pigs in experiments and replace them with lawyers: There's more of them, technicians do not get attached to them, and there's just some things a guinea pig will not do.

Lawyers are rated only slightly higher than Congressmen in any number of polls.

I have an open mind but my money's on the sister and the rest of the family.

7. Who knows...

I've testified at one of the committees she was on, she seemed pretty standup to me. No nonsense, all business and very smart. Republicans seemed quite cowed by her. That was reason enough for me to respect her. lol
