I'm a little confused with your post. The CC is closed with a balance, right? Was the account sent to a CA (collection agency)? FYI you are not responsible for one cent of this balance.

Have your brother call the CCC, request that they remove you as an AU on that account, and request that they cease reporting that account to the CRAs as belonging to you. Once you have been removed as an AU, if the account keeps showing up on your CR, dispute it with each CRA.
