DID FAMILY COURT JUDGE COMMIT PERJURY BY FAILING TO DISCLOSE $2.5 MILLION OF LOANS IN DEFAULT?

DID FAMILY COURT JUDGE COMMIT PERJURY BY FAILING TO DISCLOSE $2.5 MILLION OF LOANS IN DEFAULT?

February 7, 2018

Clark County Family Court Judge Cynthia N. Giuliani was elected November 4, 2008, officially taking the bench on January 5, 2009. Judge Giuliani was re-elected to the Eighth Judicial District Family Court in 2014. Her current term expires in January 2021.

Less than a year after taking the bench on January 5, 2009, Judge Giuliani and her husband, local Attorney Roger A. Giuliani, filed a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy petition on December 31, 2009, in Federal Court. According to their bankruptcy filing, the couple owed $2,579,954.65 on real estate holds worth $1,980,500.00. Their real estate holdings took a major hit when the market crashed in 2008. Most, if not all, of the properties, had loans which exceed the values by as much as 100% of the 2009 market values.

Clearly, the couple struggled in 2008 with more than eleven mortgage payments on properties underwater.

Every year Judges are required under Nevada law to submit a Financial Disclosure Statement, disclosing all their assets and liabilities including all creditors they owe money to. Judges must sign the FDS under penalty of perjury. Judge Giuliani’s FDS submitted on January 13, 2010, just 13 days after filing her Bankruptcy petition, failed to disclose the $2.5 million in debts she and her husband owed to over eleven different creditors. When a debtor files a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy petition, the debts are still valid for 90 days until the court discharges them. Many debts are not discharged automatically if the debtor has significant assets as did Judge Giuliani had.

As cited below on this page, Section D of the FDS requires “List each creditor to whom you or a member of your household owes $5,000 or more…”  Judge Giuliani wrote “None”. 

360Daily.net did reach out to Judge Giuliani for a statement but we never heard back.
