No critic rating

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


A Pensioner's Lament takes the reader behind the 'seen', exposing pension-abuse and fraud made possible initially by bureaucratic incompetence. It reveals fiduciary irresponsibility on the part of administrators and trustees of New Jersey's public pensions and deception in that State's Office of the Attorney General. The author's five-year unsuccessful pursuit of simple justice challenges the TPAF's simplistic interpretation of its own regulations. The reader sees what the author wrote and how his correspondents reacted.A Pensioner's Lament takes two appellate judges to task for neglecting to consider the author's legal arguments. Opinions of scholars and law professors are quoted. And, as he unravels his own adventure in the Garden State, the author comments on law, semantics, statutory interpretation etc. This documented revelation of administrative misfeasance and judicial malpractice will capture the attention and interest of public school educators everywhere. Law students, lawyers, judges and future pensioners will likewise find this legal affair of an unintimidated retiree truly riveting. Timely in its allusions to, and comments on, abuse on the part of trusted professionals, A Pensioner's Lament cries out for a reform of the American judiciary and for the 'thorough and efficient' non-partisan supervision of the fiduciaries of public pension funds.
