Legally no, no person has a legal duty to help another person if they choose not to. While it may be morally wrong, it is not legally prohibited and the brother can't be compelled to help or then be prosecuted for not helping.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
