Friends of Wells Fargo Typo Victim Larry Delassus Suing Wells Fargo For Wrongful Death

Friends of Wells Fargo Typo Victim Larry Delassus Suing Wells Fargo For Wrongful Death

Attorney Anthony Trujillo sits at his desk overlooking the Pacific Ocean, clicking through hundreds of files on his computer. Each relates to his late friend and client, Larry Delassus, who died of heart failure in a Torrance courtroom in December as he sat in a wheelchair watching Trujillo argue a negligence and discrimination case on his behalf against banking giant Wells Fargo.

 

Now, Trujillo and Delassus’ close friend Debbie Popovich say they will file a wrongful death claim in April against Wells Fargo and its tax service provider, CoreLogic. (CoreLogic was listed as First American Real Estate Tax Service in court documents until recently.)

On March 21, Trujillo will request an extension in his discrimination case from Superior Court Judge Laura C. Ellison, who had tentatively sided with Wells Fargo the day before Delassus collapsed in her courtroom. The tragic events set off a storm of complaints against Wells Fargo and the judge when L.A. Weekly published its article “Wells Fargo Typo Victim Dies in Court.” On April 18, Popovich will ask a probate judge to name her the special administrator of Delassus’ modest estate, so someone can act on his behalf.
