Clare Bronfman with her attorney William Savino. Savino drew up her verified complaint where she swore under oath that she had no written agreement with Parlato, which contradicts entirely the government’s allegation that there was a written agreement.

Here is a little game for those who want to be detectives.

It will take some deductive reasoning.

It concerns the federal case against Frank Parlato and a contract the US Government claims was entered into by Parlato and Clare and Sara Bronfman, Seagram heirs, alleged serial litigators, and alleged cult members.

AUSA Anthony Bruce [retired] claims that a contract, called a Letter of Intent, dated Jan. 2008. is enforceable writing to Parlato.

He wrote to Parlato that, “[T]he layman (Parlato) interpretation of the contract you entered into with the Bronfman sisters was [not enforceable], in a word, wrong.’”

The Letter of Intent, the government alleges, governs an alleged $1 million loan made by the Bronfmans to Parlato. Based on Parlato’s failure to comport with the terms of the Letter of Intent, he allegedly defrauded the Bronfmans.

Parlato says there is no contract.

So is there an enforceable contract?

The government’s whole case depends on the Letter of Intent being enforceable.

This week, Magistrate Judge Jeremiah McCarthy denied Parlato’s motion to dismiss because it is a question of fact for a jury to decide whether the Letter of Intent is or is not an enforceable contract.

Parlato claims that there is prosecutorial misconduct committed by Bruce which justifies possible dismissal since he believes Bruce never revealed to the grand jury that Clare Bronfman swore in a civil trial before a jury and in a verified complaint in another civil suit that there was no written agreement governing the million dollars, and that she never signed or agreed to the Letter of Intent.

That means Clare Bronfman swore under oath that she never agreed to the Letter of Intent which the government claims is an enforceable contract.

Let’s look at these facts:

Clare Bronfman testified in a civil suit in the Superior Court of California, Los Angeles County, Precision Development LLC v. Plyam, [BC384285], on March 28, 2011.

She was shown the Letter of Intent on the witness stand and she testified:

Q:  Well, let’s go to the language on the million dollars. Is that the language that you agreed to for the million dollars?

A:  I don’t believe it was.

Q: Well, what was the language as to the million dollars?

A: That we had agreed to loan [Parlato] a million dollars that he would pay back to us at some point in the future.

Clare Bronfman further denied entering into the letter of intent when she was asked if she ever agreed to the terms of Parlato’s compensation (i.e. 33 percent of the profits of a certain company), as stated in the letter of intent:

Q: Now, was your agreement to compensate Mr. Parlato based on providing him 33 and a third percent of the profit of Precision and CAM?

A: No. That’s why I said I don’t think we ever signed this agreement.

Q:   So you didn’t agree to give him a third of the profit?

A: From my recollection, no.

The Letter of Intent states that Parlato was entitled to 1/3 of the profits. If Bronfman said  she didn’t agree to the terms how can Parlato be held to the terms of the contract?

It gets worse.

Subsequent to Clare Bronfman’s grand jury testimony, which is under seal, Clare and her sister Sara Bronfmans, in a 2012 verified complaint in civil litigation allege they loaned Parlato $1 million without a written agreement.

Pursuant to the New York CPLR § 3020 (a), a “verification is a statement under oath that the pleading is true to the knowledge of the deponent.”

If AUSA Bruce led Clare Bronfman to assert the Letter of Intent had been “entered into” in the grand jury [which is under seal] then she later repudiated that testimony in her April 2, 2012 verified complaint in Bronfman v. Parlato, 143205 (NY. Sup. Ct., Niagara Cty.) she committed perjury.

In this civil complaint in Niagara County, the Bronfmans’ allege, that — “[r]elying on Parlato’s representations (made while he was already their agent) and without a written agreement, the Bronfmans loaned $1.0 million as a demand loan.”

Consider the contradictions:

  1. (March 28, 2011, Civil) Clare Bronfman testified she
  2. did not believe she signed the letter of intent,
  3. that it was a loan, and
  4. that she did not agree to give Mr. Parlato one third of the profits as specified in the letter of intent.
  5. (April 2, 2012, Civil) Clare Bronfman stated in her verified complaint
  6. The $1 million was a demand loan
  7. given while Mr. Parlato was the Bronfmans’ agent and
  8. without a written agreement.

To the extent that these sworn statements of Clare Bronfman contradict Clare Bronfman’s grand jury testimony that the Letter of Intent was a entered into as a contract, then she committed perjury.

Parlato claims ASUA Bruce was aware of these sworn statements of Bronfman stating that she never entered into the Letter of Intent.

Parlato’s defense team presented them to him prior to the indictment.

If this is true, then ASUA Bruce suborned perjury if he had Bronfman testify in the grand jury that she entered into the letter of intent when she swore under oath both before and after that there was no written agreement.

Unless of course Bruce will next argue that only Parlato was held to the terms of the contract and that an agreement which the other party repudiated in sworn testimony is binding only on one party.

If this does not open the door for a full review of the grand jury minutes what will?

The government didn’t know if the Letter of Intent was executed or not as late as Sept. 18, 2015.
