1980 Court Case

The court documents below are from 1980, stating that the Grand Jury of the County of San Diego accused Patricia Sperato (Sri Donato) and Ed Masry (Morningland’s then-lawyer) of a felony.

What happened afterward (next article): In 1983, Ed Masry and Patricia Sperato were acquitted of the bribery charge. Masry was convicted of grand theft by false pretenses from Morningland for the $10,000. A further complaint against Patricia had Masry testifying against her. That complaint was dismissed by the court as it found the key testimony breached attorney-client privilege. A 2nd suit was dismissed as the statute of limitations had since passed.
