Elderly Gay Couple Stripped Of Their Rights And Belongings By Sonoma County!

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooGay Gay GayLegal MattersSad Sad

This is possibly the most heartbreaking, nauseating thing we've read in quite some time.

Absolutely unacceptable.

An elderly homosexual man is pressing charges against Sonoma County in California for separating him from his partner and auctioning off their belongings!

Clay Greene lived with his partner of 20 years, Harold Scull, and apparently had protected all of their legal rights by naming each other in their wills, medical directives, etc.

Despite this, when Harold fell down the stairs and was taken the hospital, the county and health care workers chose to acknowledge Clay as only Harold's 'roommate' and refused to let them see each other. The courts appointed the county access to Harold's bank account to pay for his medical expenses!

The county then forced Clay against his will into a separate nursing home from his partner, and then took all of their belongings, AUCTIONED THEM OFF, and terminated the lease on their home. Harold apparently passed away three months after his accident.

Clay was never able to see him and will never be able to recover any of their belongings or property.

Thankfully, a team of lawyers managed to get Greene released from the home and together are building a case against the county, the auction company, and the nursing homes.

They will be going to trial in July.

We sincerely hope that everyone responsible for this travesty is exposed and punished accordingly for such a hateful, despicable display of cruelty. We can't even imagine the pain and heartbreak that poor man must be going through - to not only lose his partner, but to be separated and completely stripped of his legal rights without merit!

Nobody should have to endure that.

    I hope those bastards get gang raped by a group of angry mules!



  2. 102

    It is cases like these that show how important it is to legalize gay marriage. It is time for people to stop judging and start allowing EVERYONE to have equal rights.



  3. 103

    How can something like this happen in this age when homosexuality is (or should) be accepted ?



  4. 104

    so sad, i hope he gets justice, he deserves that much.



  5. 105

    This is absolutely disgusting if it turns out to be true.
    How can people be so hateful and cruel in this day and age?

    That said, Perez, you are one of the most hateful and cruel people alive right now. When you stop being a total dick and kicking people when they're down, you'll have room to talk.



  6. 106

    Perez, set this us as one of your causes. This is so wrong!



  7. 107

    OMG it's 2010, come on people!!!!



  8. 108

    Oh man, I'm gonna throw up. Terrible.



  9. 109

    There is absolutely no reason, that in this day and age any person should be denied the right to be with their loved one based on the inane prejudices of closed minded people. The people involved should be ashamed of themselves… When an ailing person needs the comfort of someone they care for… who cares what gender that person is. Feeling lost and afraid and hurt at the precipice of death and these people think that it is okay to deny him the basic necessity of love and respect. They should be ashamed!

    i love how you talk crap about everyone but the min its about someone gay you feel bad….boo hoo perez



  11. 111

    That is outrageous. My ex is gay and has a wonderful partner and I would hate to see something like this happen to them. I hope that Clay will get compensation for what the county did. My condolences for his loss.

    "This is possibly the most heartbreaking, nauseating thing we've read in quite some time.Absolutely unacceptable."

    THIS IS EXACTLY HOW I FEEL EVERY TIME YOU POST SOMETHING BULLYING A YOUNG GIRL! LEAVE MISHA AND EVERY OTHER GIRL ALONE YOU JEALOUS PIECE OF DOG SHIT!



  13. 113

    To have the love of your life die without being able to say goodbye would be the most terrible thing in the world. The truth will come out and justice will be served!



  14. 114

    This is almost unbelievable in it's cruelty. If this is true then some of you high profiled gay celebrities with loads of money should be stepping up to the plate and doing something. It makes me sick to my stomach. I hate people like this with a passion.



  15. 115

    This is awful. But by law at the time then that is how it was. Thankfully now to Obama, we don't have to worry about this.



  16. 116

    I live in Sonoma County and I can tell you that the people here and in this area are some of the most homosexual-sopportive people you will find. I have lived here my whole life and have never met anyone who says they don't support gays. This is a very democratic place… so don't get upset with the county because I can assure you, we are just as outraged.

    "We sincerely hope that everyone responsible for this travesty is exposed and punished accordingly for such a hateful, despicable display of cruelty. We can't even imagine the pain and heartbreak that poor man (girl) must be going through - Nobody should have to endure that."

    AGAIN THESE ARE MY THOUGHTS WHEN READING YOUR POSTS WHERE YOU BULLY YOUNG WOMEN!!! EVERY SINGLE DAY YOU DISPLAY HATE AND DESPICABLE CRUELTY AGAINST THESE YOUNG WOMEN. BUT THAT'S OKAY WHY???? I SWEAR IF IT DOESN'T HAVE TO DO WITH SOMETHING "GAY' YOU DON'T GIVE A FUCK!



  18. 118

    that is fucked up. i'm ashamed that this happened in the state i have always called home.



  19. 119

    This is fuckin stupid. How could anyone treat another human being like this? It sucks big time, sue their asses.

    ps: all the people complaining about Perez posting hateful things about celebrities, ahh boo hoo. Why do you visit this site if it offends you so much? and more to the point these two gentlemen are not celebrities, they haven't put themselves out there in the media to be shot down like celebrities do, it's part and parcel of the fame game, you take the ups with the downs and if you can't stand the heat etc etc….get the fuck out the kitchen!



  20. 120

    sad.hopefully their will be justice….hopefully



  21. 121

    my parents live in sonoma and i cannot believe this has happened. a completely horrible travesty



  22. 122

    That's horrible. I hope he wins the case. At least Obama is trying. It's hard to change the laws like marriage over night especially with so many people out there against rights. You can't please them all, but you hope in cases like this people will see why it's so important to let them have their rights just as any married couple would.

    On the otherside I don't know why people are criticising Perez on this post. I mean come on at least do that on a Heidi Montag post or something less relevant. Also there are good points on here so many hypocrites in the world who take offense to something and at the same time call for change then go ahead and insult others. Hmmm I think some people need to wake up and smell the coffee.



  23. 123

    That's just so disrespectful and disgusting behavior!!!

    Re: pusspuss

    Just Allegations? Are you serious!?! It's a matter of public record. Greene v. County of Sonoma et al.: Download a copy of the complaint at .nclrights.org/site/DocServer/Greene_v_Sonoma_County.pdf?docID=7461



  25. 125

    Same thing happens in Germany to a dear friend of mine living with his old mother - he fell in to coma, mother was in final cancer state and while both of them were in hospital the social worker who should have been taken care of anything stole and sold the personal belongings of the two - just disgusting.



  26. 126

    oh my god. That's awful! they were treated like they weren't even human beings. How can someone do that to another Person. Who cares what gender they're more attracted too. This country needs to realize what century this is and smarten up. That's terrible!!



  27. 127

    The UN needs to be involved, this is a human rights case.



  28. 128

    what?? i thought Sonoma County was supposed to be the cool county!! Aren't they the ones who have almost completely legalized marijuana? Why are they being so bogus? Is there a number we can call or a petition we can sign or ANY thing we can do for Clay?? BOO CALIFORNIA!



  29. 129

    IF THIS HAPPENED TO A BLACK COUPLE IT WOULD NEVER END UP ON YOUR SITE!!!!!!!



  30. 130

    Death and destruction to Sonoma County !



  31. 131

    Please follow this and keep us posted…and thanks!



  32. 132

    is this nazi fuckin' Germany?
    wtf?



  33. 133

    I'm from the Uk and I thank God we have equal rights cos this is just too wrong. It's heartbreaking and I do not understand why so many people in your country think it is right to discriminate. It makes me sick.



  34. 134

    Let's talk activist judges, shall we? It was a COURT that decided to ignore all the efforts of these men.



  35. 135
