JUST IN: Judge Steel today freed two more victims from for-hire "guardian" April Parks' financial exploitation and abuse
Disgraced Family Court Judge Charles Hoskin and his appointed Hearing Master Jon Norheim
This is Judge Steel's third termination of an exploitative guardianship ordered by Norheim under the direction of his boss Chief Family Court Judge Charles Hoskin.
Judge Hoskin was recently re-elected to another six year term, and Norheim, who is not an elected judge and works at Hoskin's pleasure, have been banned from hearing any more guardianship cases.
Per a May 2015 ruling by Clark County Eighth Judicial District Court Chief Judge David Barker, both Hoskin and Norheim are no longer allowed to hear guardianship cases based on numerous complaints filed with the Nevada Commission on Judicial Discipline, and the Clark County Commission.
Judge Steel who has heard all guardianship cases since June 1, is expected to soon begin review of dozens of complaints lodged against veteran for-hire guardian Jared E. Shafer, who is well known as the mentor of most Las Vegas' based private guardians, many of whom are also suspected of exploiting their "wards."
The North's heart rendering story was featured on several recent KTNV TV Contact 13 segments.

Since Contact 13's exclusive airing of Rudy and Rennie North's story, along with several others telling of local guardianship abuse sanctioned by Hoskin and Norheim, Channel 13 News has catapulted into the number one position in key time slots according to Nielsen's May TV news ratings.
Many believe the station's success is based on Kean and Spears' exclusive stories about the previously out of control guardianship racket in Southern Nevada, and the remedies now being put in place to stop the family court sanctioned financial exploitation by for-hire guardians of too many of our city's senior citizens, and disabled persons (click HERE to view the shocking story of an exploited disabled man in his own words).
