Court filing: Nancy Salzman seeks clarification that she can speak with daughter Michelle and son-in-law Ben Myers

Love in bloom at NXIVM - Ben Meyers and Michelle Salzman-Meyers.
According to a court filing, Nancy Salzman, through her lawyer, seeks clarification from the court that she is allowed – as a condition of her bail package – to speak with her daughter, Michelle Myers, and her son-in-law, Ben Myers (That was probably smart of Michelle to change her last name when she married Ben).
The prosecution does not object to Nancy communicating to her daughter and son-in-law and so the judge will likely grant the order so that they can speak freely. Pre Trial Services evidently wanted clarification from the judge on this matter.
This will be a great way for Nancy to give orders to the remaining NXIVM members since both Ben and Michelle are long-time and high-ranking members of NXIVM – and both have participated in financial and computer crimes.
Because they have not yet been charged with any crimes, they are free to communicate with all the unindicted NXIVM members.
More importantly: It is official – Ben and Michelle are married. if you haven’t done so already, please send your wedding gifts to Crate and Barrel.
Here is Nancy’s lawyer’s letter to the judge seeking permission for the Prefect to talk to Michelle and Ben.
For my own part, I always like to remember how Ben participated in the imprisonment of a certain women of NXIVM he was trying to date – because Vanguard was jealous and he went along and dumped her and allowed her to be imprisoned and then took Michelle in her place.
He’s a real upstanding fellow that Ben.
I also like the fact that he helped move the server that hosted NXIVM’s website from Saratoga County to Albany County so that Albany DA P. David Soares could arrange for bogus indictments of Toni Natalie, Joe O’Hara, Barbara Bouchey and John Tighe.
Ben is an ethicist in the tradition of Keith Raniere.
Speaking of fond recollections, don’t we all feel proud of how Nancy gave her young daughters over to Vanguard?
Viva Executive Success!

  • Wonder if the Feds will monitor the communications between Prefect and her daughter and son-in-law. It would be entertaining if they catch her discussing where the money they laundered is being stashed and all sorts of other “family” stuff.

    • IWP, try to have hope. It will of course be a fight (as it should be, in our system) but I am optimistic the feds have enough to thoroughly sicken any jury. This “It was all consensual” and “I have no money” arguments are going to fall flat on their face. Mistakes: Fleeing to Mexico; Using Pam’s $8M credit card; Ordering the imprisonment of the female member. And more. And I do expect people to flip, including Karen Unterreiner. The feds won their battle to keep KR in pre-trial detention and that is a good sign.

      • I agree about having hope, and Raniere staying in detention.

        I do wonder, though, why pretrial services is being so easy-going with everybody else.

    • Way to rise about it ion, and not respond.

      I’ll say it for you.

      Scott Johnson and his fake NXIVM mixer buddy, Ben, are both putzes.

      And so much for Frank deleting comments that serve no other purpose than to attack regular commenters.

Parlato has been prominently featured on HBO’s docuseries “The Vow” and was the lead investigator and coordinating producer for Investigation Discovery’s “The Lost Women of NXIVM.” Parlato was also credited in the Starz docuseries "Seduced" for saving 'slave' women from being branded and escaping the sex-slave cult known as DOS.

Additionally, Parlato’s coverage of the group OneTaste, starting in 2018, helped spark an FBI investigation, which led to indictments of two of its leaders in 2023.

Parlato appeared on the Nancy Grace Show, Beyond the Headlines with Gretchen Carlson, Dr. Oz, American Greed, Dateline NBC, and NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt, where Parlato conducted the first-ever interview with Keith Raniere after his arrest. This was ironic, as many credit Parlato as one of the primary architects of his arrest and the cratering of the cult he founded.
