Couple claims Harris Health System has evidence to support their case against former son-in law's alleged criminal behavior


By Marian Johns | Jan 15, 2020


HOUSTON — A Houston couple involved in fraud litigation against their former son-in-law who was a physician with Harris Health System (HHS) is seeking depositions from hospital employees as evidence in their case. 

Carols Guimaraes and Jemima Guimaraes filed a complaint Jan. 10 in the Harris County District Court against Harris County Hospital District doing business as HHS alleging violation of the Civil Rights Act, fraud by nondisclosure, civil conspiracy and aiding and abetting. 

The Guimaraes are involved in a fraud suit against their former son-in-law Christopher Brann, who practiced medicine at HHS's Ben Taub Hospital. According to their current complaint, Brann was convicted and sent to federal prison for fraud in "multiple judicial and legislative forums" that included divorce, custody and criminal litigation. The Guimaraes seek oral and written deposition testimony from hospital employees which they allege will lead to evidence of criminal actions by Brann's and HHS's involvement. 

The plaintiffs are represented by Jeff Diamant and Thomas "Tal" DeBauche of Jeff Diamant PC in Houston.
