A 100-year-old nursing home resident and her son are suing Scott Barter of Kenosha, alleging he forged documents and put the centenarian at risk of losing critical Medicaid benefits.
The civil suit was filed last month in Kenosha County Circuit Court by Harriett Caudill, her son, David J. Ashe, and grandson, Michael Ashe, all of Kenosha.
Barter, the owner of Barter Financial Services Inc. and president of Kenoshans for Open/Honest Government, a political action committee, is alleged to have forged Caudill’s name — misspelled — three times on a quit claim deed conveying her interest in a life estate she held for her former residence, a home in the 5300 block of 46th Avenue.
The complaint said Barter “knowingly and intentionally executed the signature in a manner that was inconsistent with his ordinary handwriting and would instead give the appearance of having been written by a frail and elderly person.”
Notarized the purported signature on April 19, 2017, by affixing his seal as a notary public for the state of Wisconsin, which serves as a formal declaration and acknowledgement that Caudill was present before him and executed the deed, which he “personally knew to be false.

New twist in baby powder lawsuits as focus turns to asbestos contamination
Johnson & Johnson and Imerys Talc America, a unit of Imerys SA, have vowed to appeal the New Jersey verdict and deny asbestos has ever been present in their products or that their talc can cause any form of cancer.
A Fergus County woman has filed a lawsuit against Three Forks talcum producer Imerys Talc, claiming the company, along with consumer goods giant Johnson & Johnson, failed to warn her about the dangers of the mineral, which allegedly played a role in the woman developing ovarian cancer.
The suit, filed last week in Gallatin County District Court , alleges that industry members have known about the carcinogenic nature of talc for more than 40 years and have neglected to inform consumers.
According to the suit: Imerys Talc, a French company that owns and operates two plants in the Three Forks area, produces talc used in Johnson & Johnson baby powder.
Fergus County resident Holly Jensen , 62, was first exposed to the powder as a child, and continued using it for feminine hygiene purposes for much of her adult life.
The suit cites “multiple epidemiologic studies” that it says demonstrate the association between talc and ovarian cancer, including a 1993 United States National Toxicology Program study that found talc to be carcinogenic whether or not it contained asbestos.
In general, research on the relationship between talc and cancer has been inconclusive.
