Ronald Marc George — the former Chief Justice of the California Supreme Court who stand accused of embezzling funds — will be asked to produce documentation relating to his ownership of an estate in Beverly Hills, as well as his ownership of a condominium located in the Nob Hill neighborhood of San Francisco.
A suit filed in the Orange County Superior Court alleges that George, unlawfully transferred funds from entities that were under his control (such as the California Administrative Office of the Courts (“AOC”) intended for the CCMS computer system) into various accounts that were specifically maintained in Alan Rothenberg’s bank — 1st Century — a bank which Eric George owns in part. Said funds, as the suit alleges, were later embezzled.

As part of maintaining the scheme, the suit alleges, AOC employees Ronald Overholt and William Vickery were bestowed with various gifts, trips, kickbacks, bribes, excessive salaries, and the like. Similarly, and also as part of guarding the scheme, the suit alleges that defendants, at times, resorted to utilizing the services of Tom Layton — a former Los Angeles Deputy Sheriff/Senior State Bar of California investigator — to “illegally gather detrimental dirt” on various individuals who would oppose and/or object to the existence of said arrangements.

The suit also alleges that defendant Holly Fujie — an officer of both Bet Tzedek and the Chancery Club — engaged in various acts of misconduct while assisting Ronald and Eric George to transfer funds from both the California Bar Foundation (where she serves as vice-president) and the State Bar of California (where she served as a member of a committee responsible for distribution of funds) to Bet Tzedek totaling hundreds of thousand of dollars.
Separately, TLR has learned that an examination is still underway relating to the relationship between Eric George and the San Francisco based law firm of Howard Rice Nemerovsky Canday Falk and Rabkin in matters relating to multimillion dollar litigation against the Walt Disney Company regarding unpaid royalties involving fictional character Winnie the Pooh.
