Jonathan Dickstein, former Morrison & Foerster partner, Pleads Guilty to 31 Felonies

Jonathan S. Dickstein, a former partner with Morrison & Foerster, has pleaded guilty to 31 felony counts stemming from a $400,000 scam he and his wife concocted based on their autistic son’s education and medical treatment, reports The Am Law Daily.

Jonathan Dickstein’s profile from his prior employer, Morrison & Foerster.

As was reported here in September of 2010:

“Court documents provide that “Dickstein and Lynn sent invoices seeking “reimbursement” from the San Francisco  Unified School District for special education services provided to their son by a company called “Puzzle Pieces.” Documents filed with the court allege that “Puzzle Pieces” was actually a fictitious business name created by Dickstein and Lynn themselves, and that Dickstein and Lynn went to great lengths to hide that they were Puzzle Pieces.”

“These parents, in essence, are charged with creating an elaborate scheme to defraud the school district, Blue Cross, and a private law firm to make money off of their child’s special needs,” said District Attorney Kamala D. Harris. “Stealing funds from a school district is unconscionable. Particularly in this era of decimated school budgets, it is crucial that we safeguard funds meant to educate our City’s children,” Harris Stated.

According to The Am Law Daily, Dickstein’s spouse — Barclay J. Lynn — also pleaded guilty to 31 counts, and was sentenced last month to one day in jail and received credit for time served.

    This story is late in publishing because the AOC (ahem, the judicial council) spent months drawing out our requests for information on a simple inquiry they should have been able to deliver on the same day it was received because what scant information they did provide was readily available to them. But they dragged out […]

  • Another Clifford Ham boondoggle in San Diego 2017/04/19
    More false promises of tunnels reaching out from jails to courthouses. Don’t say we didn’t tell you so because we’ve stated many times that ALL tunnel promises are false promises made to win local support of the projects and penciled out upon approval. What we find most disturbing is that Clifford Ham has a track […]

  • Writing our obit is a bit premature… 2017/04/06
    Welcome to 2017! Yeah, we know, a bit of time has passed since we’ve been hyperactive here. We’ve been a bit busy frying other fish.  If you consider yourself a progressive, you’ve already read and possibly even recognized our work elsewhere. We will be continuing those projects and check in here as not to neglect […]

  • Welcome to the first business day of our reinvigorated 10 year run! 2017/01/02
    Thanks to the sheer incompetence of Judicial Council staff leadership, we’re going to be spending the next ten years nipping at their heels. Last week, the San Francisco trial court ruled that the Jacobs entities maintained their contractors license and that the 22.7 million that the Judicial Council should have been able to recover is […]
