Russell Scott Goldberg
How bad is bad? How about when DIVORCE proceedings take a much bigger toll than the cash in your wallet, the equity in your home, and the “love,” long loss from the days of “I do”?
On Wednesday the 22nd of February, Russell Scott Goldberg walked into the the apartment of Margaret “Peggy” Duffy Goldberg and shot her three times, killing her in the kitchen of her home. While their 8 year old son was sitting on a couch watching television in the other room.
Since about November 2010 right up to February 17th, 2012, it is reported that there were approximately 14 days of hearings in Judge David Cunningham’s department 22 at the Stanley Mosk Superior Court here in Los Angeles. All of the hearings conclusions were often met with a certain amount of bravado and sarcasm from Mr. Goldberg, the killer. Except! for the last hearing on Friday the 17th 2012, “something was different.” Patrick DeCarolis, Peggy’s lawyer, noticed something was not right, “it was different,” Mr. Goldberg left the area immediately. In the past he would stand around and make comments and be a little “annoying,” not this Friday…he had noticed something was not right and it was not being his “annoying wiseguy self”.
Mr. DeCarolis, who is a partner at Trope and DeCarolis, was devastated when this reporter interviewed him on Saturday the 25th of February. He recalls that Peggy was “lamenting“ the time this whole process was taking. Can anyone imagine the terror she was going through as her life was being taken one shot, two shot and the third shot from a gun in the hands of her former husband…”till death do us part,” took a whole different direction. Note: Goldberg had no history of any physical abuse, “he never hit her.” For sure he had a reputation of being a jerk, an East Coast attitude thing if you will.
Patrick DeCarolis recalled to me that that last hearing in Judge Cunningham’s court was not a “good day” for the other side. Judge Cunningham had expressed his annoyance as to the time that it was taking on this case. Goldberg was represented by another lawyer in the current proceeding as well as a relative who was a lawyer. This relative brought little or nothing to the case at hand except to add to the madness of this divorce that was already swirling out of control. The end was much closer than anyone could ever have expected.
Russell Scott Goldberg was represented in the early stages by Ron Brot of Brot and Gross. I spoke to Ron and he was shocked to hear that his former client had killed his wife in cold blood and then committed suicide in his car in Beaver, Utah. Ron is a tough lawyer and enjoys a good “battle,” and he too was shocked that his former client would kill his wife. Ron’s thoughts were compassionate as to what “this system can do and how it can drag people into a machine of madness (divorce) and spit them out in conditions that are hard to explain.”
“He loved his kids“ recalls Mr. DeCarolis of Russell Scott Goldberg, the killer of his children’s mother, an 8 year old and a 13 year old. The 13 year old was in school, after Goldberg murdered his wife he took his son to his mother’s house (his mother and Peggy were arch enemies, it is reported to me that they hated each other).
Many may want to point their fingers at Judge Cunningham or at Mr. DeCarolis or Mr. Brot for not being more in tune to the actions that were taking place and its affect on people like Mr. Goldberg. Certainly many could say that Goldberg was a jerk and was not doing anything constructive to get on with his life, folks, it is not easy. Russell Scott Goldberg was being paid alimony from his former wife, the woman he would murder in cold blood. Note: Both Peggy and Russell had choices as to what was happening to the two of them in the world of DIVORCE. Neither could seem to figure it out, got $5.00 each take $2.50…No? Go to DIVORCE court and you will walk away with $.03 each, MAYBE, people it is all in your hands…in DIVORCE court, the odds are against you.
Perhaps if he had moved on and tried to find a job and to make his own living he could have dealt with the “issues” in court on the day everything changed. He found a gun, it would seem, with no problem, too bad he could not have found a job just as easily…he put into motion an act of cowardice and evil beyond belief. “He loved his kids”…maybe not as much as some may have thought.
The decisions that judges make in this country’s courts are often tough ones! As I have stated “can’t do it yourself, then a judge will.” The end result of what happened to Peggy Duffy Goldberg and Russell Scott Goldberg is the same thing as when I was a cop. If in the course of my performing my duty someone killed themselves…sad, I guess, but in the end it is not my problem, when you are assigned to do “God’s Work,” shit happens.

Hey, I have a great idea, let’s just leave Charlie Sheen alone, enough already. So the guy has had a few bumps in the road…so what? Maybe it is that he expresses himself in a somewhat “outward” fashion. And if “bumps” on the road to success were a crime, we would not have much to watch on the tube! Charlie is a big talent and he knows it as do all those around him…including the best sex money can buy! And again, so what? pretty girls and cute boys have always been in the Hollywood mix…this is happiness that money can buy!
Sure the drugs and hookers, ok… and so what, he is trying to take care of it and it would appear that he is doing the best he can. So what, he buys sex, he is rich and can do as he pleases, it is his money. He does not like AA so maybe he has a point…I found his thoughts on the AA organization interesting. But all of this BS and the attack mode of what seems like the world against this guy is total bullshit. Just let him work through what he has to deal with. What? is the plan to get him to hurt himself, I hope not as much of this is none of anyone’s business. Just leave him alone and get things together.
Here is another reason to leave Mr. Sheen alone, MARTY SINGER. Marty is a friend and one of the best lawyers I think in the country at what he does. And what he does is to assure that people leave him and his clients alone. Can we all agree that Mr. Sheen is clear-minded enough to hire the best legal mind in the country to help him in his affairs?
The last few days of his former wife’s silliness is another issue, who is advising her that she would go to the wrong police department to file her restraining orders? She went to Beverly Hills Police and Charlie does not live in Beverly Hills…duh. Brooke get some competent help or at least someone who knows where the guy your complaining about lives!
…An “emergency restraining order,” ridiculous, outrageous, does “kick the guy when he is down” ring a bell here folks… what was the emergency? “He threatened me.” …The actions of Brooke Mueller in my mind are…
If I was Charlie Sheen I would not worry too much, he has a mega firm backing him in the DIVORCE action, Ron F. Brot and Mark P. Gross of Brot and Gross ( 818-549-0800 ). …Their client looks great in this story and …so let’s see, Marty Singer, Ron Brot and Mark Gross…
Read the rest of the article by John J. Nazarian at Desperate Exes.com. I saw the interview on CNN with Piers Morgan and I agreed with a lot of what Charlie Sheen had to say. He is a mega talent and like most has a mega ego, AND he carries his latest drug test results in his pocket taking a drug test every 48 hours to put a halt to all of this “hysteria”.
