Keelin Garcia Sues Deborah Koons & Attorneys


Here's an article by Nancy Isles Nation that was published in the Marin Independent Journal & the Oakland Tribune:

Garcia daughter sues over lack of support
Nancy Isles Nation

A daughter of the late Grateful Dead guitarist Jerry Garcia is suing his widow and several attorneys involved in settling the rock star's estate, saying no one was looking out for her financial interests when the money was distributed.

Keelin Noel Garcia, a 19-year-old college student living in Marin, names Deborah Koons, Garcia's wife when he died in August 1995. She also names attorneys David Hellman, Richard Riede and Neil Moran, all of whom practice in San Rafael, claiming that child support payments that should have been made to her were not allocated properly.

William Romaine, Keelin's Visalia-based attorney, said Jerry Garcia's will clearly states that Keelin's support should be taken care of before the remaining assets were split by beneficiaries.

"Deborah Koons, a trustee, had the highest possible duty to provide it at her expense," Romaine said. "Instead, she profited from it."

Romaine cites the will of Jerome J. Garcia, stating: "After payment of all my debts, my last illness and funeral expenses, and provision for my child support obligations for Keelin Garcia É my executor shall divide and distribute the remainder of my estate."

Romaine said that while the case was in mediation, attorneys for Koons and Keelin's court-appointed guardians came up with a low amount of child support at a time when the estate was making huge amounts of money.

"The trustees are supposed to look after her support," Romaine said.

Hellman, who wrote Garcia's will, said the probate court oversaw the entire process of distributing the estate - valued in 1998 at more than $15 million - and support for Keelin Garcia was covered at the time.

"We'll see where it goes, but it appears those issues were covered in the probate court," he said of the allegations.

Riede and Moran are listed as guardians for Keelin Garcia in her lawsuit.

The estate was admitted to probate in Marin Superior Court in September 1995 and closed in October 2001. Under the will, a third of the estate was given to Koons and the remaining two thirds were shared by Garcia's daughters, brother and friends. Keelin Garcia was allotted one-fifth of the inheritance, like her sisters.

Keelin is Garcia's youngest daughter from his relationship with Menasha Matheson. He had three other daughters: Heather, his oldest, from his first marriage, to Sara Ruppenthal, and Theresa ("Trixie") and Annabelle, from his marriage to Carolyn "Mountain Girl" Adams.

In her lawsuit, Keelin claims the defendants breached their fiduciary duties on her behalf. She asks for unspecified damages. A court hearing is scheduled for March 5.

Garcia died while in a drug rehabilitation facility in Forest Knolls from a heart attack at 53.

Personally, I thought the comments sounded somewhere between Jr. High & FratHouse... But I have a no censorship policy for comments. The world isn't airbrushed and neither is this blog. I really doubt Jerry would give a shit about whether I censor my blog or not. One thing I've found out about not censoring comments: when someone posts something ignorant, someone else is bound to react. You should check out the comments for the National Anthem video I uploaded to YouTube:

They make for an interesting read...

trust me, jerry would mind the fact that someone said such a vile thing about boning his CHILD. see, that's how it is, when you're a parent. you protect your own. it's instinctive.

i get the whole non-censorship ideal-i really do. i am old enough to have adored zappa from the
beginning. even the filthiest songs.

do you have kids? daughters? would it be okay if someone said that about them in your presence? peace to you as well...this just surprised the hell out of me.

No, you don't get the whole non-censorship ideal. You are forcing your morality on others. This is sort of ironic, since Jerry obviously had very loose moral values himself.

I respect that you are a parent, but don't try to make Jerry or his "legacy" out to be something it is not.

Hey Anonymous. I hope you die a long slow death so you have time to reflect on many things, feelings for one, which you have never done. Perhaps AIDS related or maybe bone-marrow cancer. I am usually a nicer guy than this but you really are a sad species of something non human related.

Wow! Garcia' he was awesome and I would jump on his bone if I had a chance and as far as a young man saying he would bone his daughter.. I believe Jerry would take that as a compliment.. She is a Beautiful women and if I was a lesbian I might even say the same thing. It is only statements and peoples opinions.

Deborah Koons Garcia is the most loathsome, greediest, black-hearted cocksucker ever associated with the Dead. She married him for his money and went nuts with his estate, screwing Jerry's loved ones over, selling/marketing everything about Jerry. And in interviews about Jerry, the only thing this bitch talks about is how much money she's making off his estate. She is a filthy, diseased vampire and her actions over the past 15 years prove it.

Deborah Koons GARCIA is a VAMPIRE, not an ANGEL AS Jerry GARCIA WAS...
He married Koons in the last legs of his life when he was probably mentally compromised (no offense Jerry) - diabetes does this to your head, no way around it. Everyone knows Jerry Garcia cared for his families, children especially and would want them to benefit from his life rewards...
ADD --------- Anyone who would forbid a wife or family and esp. children from a FUNERAL SHOULD BE SHOT. iT'S INSECURITY AND GREED! AN INSECURE, SELFISH, CONTROL FREAKS LAST ATTEMPT. SHOT THE BITCH__ no hire someone to put her out of everyone else"s misery. SHE DIDN'T HAVE ANY BABIES WITH HIM.. SHE'S A ZERO.

Deborah Koons is a barren, money- hoarding whore. I hope Keelin got all the money she needs. Koons barred Sarah and Mountain Girl from Garcia's funeral because she is jealous that she was too frigid and rotten to have Garcia's child. You know she would have loved to have the little money tree of child benefits from Garcia if she had been woman enough to bear them by Garcia.

So, what ever happened with Keelin's lawsuit? I have met all the involved after having worked for the Grateful Dead from 1983 to 1996 managing their mail order ticket sales office. Without a doubt Ms. Koons (although her legal last name IS Garcia)has some serious issues...unknown fact is that she and Jerry never actually shared a home together! She claimed that Jerry's MSA agreement with MG was invalid because he was under the influence of drugs...that arguement would mean that her marriage to Jerry was also invalid! I have known and been friends with both MG (Carolyn) and Manasha, and they are both really good people. Of Jerry's children the only one I know well is Trixie and she is just plain awesome! I haven't seen Keelin for about six years and she was always nice and, yes, pretty. I met Heather once at the hospital when Jerry was in a coma. I know Annabelle but haven't seen her in years.

There came a point reading these comments where I couldn't read any more. I think Jerry would have understood he had an attractive daughter, and would thus be an object of desire to many men, especially those between jr. high and the frat house who were primarily used to masturbating and stating the obvious in such places as this. The obvious being she is attractive and you'd like to fornicate with her, of course.
What Jerry would have had a hard time with here would have been two things. One, is there are those who find it necessary to state the obvious, whether it be about his daughter or anyone that would be a subject of someone's fantasy. It goes without saying, and is a waste of space, and specifically shows no creativity. Second, I think he'd shake his head at one more example of where people don't make much effort to try and get along. Is it so hard to read the comments of someone with nothing better to say than "I'd like to bone her" and just shrug it off as some poor bastard with nothing better to say? Show a little pity for these people. There's a certain sickness that lies within these folks, don't feed it. And let's pray that sickness diminishes somehow and these people are freed of this.

Fuck that. I would have boned Jerry Garcia himself. You can't tell me that his sexy bear body, silver facial hair, strong hands, and inviting eyes and smile didn't turn you the fuck on. I jerk off watching videos of him perform and I'm interesting in meeting similar others.
