An east side mob group led by Junior Forgione in the early 1970s.

History

The group came into the public light in 1974 after, Richard Forgione had to stand trial for the murder of Lisette Palais. Attorney Vince Oleck unleashed the infamous superhero defense and got Richie off.

But their triumph was short-lived, as both Forgione's were found murdered within a week after the case, presumably by The Blue Knight, which shattered the organization.


Observations

They have an associate named Nick DiPreta who advised them to hire the law firm of Grant, Miller, Healy and Valada for Richies case.
