50/50 parenting should be the default position in divorce – think about it!
with 16 comments

9 Votes

Divorce courts in America are destroying any chance of maintaining the children’s mental health by interfering with parenting, promoting conflict by discouraging mediation and encouraging that a divorce should be an adversarial proceeding, as well as encouraging the racketeering that goes on when judges enrich court-appointed attorneys, counselors and therapists by appointing them in an open-ended instead of limited fashion and only when necessary.

Courts are the wrong place for divorce decisions to be made as they are inherently an adversarial proceeding. We need mediation outside of the court to be the default position in any dissolution of a marriage, particularly if it involves children. We need a complete overhaul of laws related to dissolution of marriage, as well as about probate issues such as guardians for elders – another area of court abuse of families.

Judges, lawyers, and most of the court-appointed hacks knows as GALs, child representatives, and evaluators (often who make their business promoting conflict to draw out their appointment and make more money in this cottage industry) end up raping the estates of families and even taking the children’s college funds to pay for their fees.

Instead of promoting stabilization and financial security, the judges and lawyers work hard to end careers, teach children to be entitled and view parents as only deep pockets, promote parental alienation and defamation, as well as destroy the very stability necessary for a child to cope with divorce.

We need to ask Pres. Obama to make a task force on dissolution of marriage, paternity issues, and probate issues so that our country can advance socially as much as we have advanced technologically. We need to stop the court abuse of children, the elderly, and families in general.

Sign a petition to ask President Obama to appoint a task force to study divorce, child custody, family mediation, and ways to take divorce out of the courts, end court abuse, and let parents decide how to parent. Cleck here for petition.

With the dissolution of the family, the mobility that is breaking up the family, and the greed of the divorce cottage industry, we have a very big crisis in America, and around the world. We need to lead in solving this problem. Write President Obama and ask him to make this task force his priority in his second term.

Nebraska high court again rules father’s consent necessary for adoption

Nebraska high court again rules father’s consent necessary for adoption

23 hours ago  •  By MARGERY A. BECK / The Associated Press

For a second time, the Nebraska Supreme Court has ruled that a father who was intentionally misled about the birth of his child can stop the baby’s adoption.

In a ruling Friday, the state’s high court said the consent of the father, listed in court documents as Jeremiah J., is required by state law for the child to be put up for adoption. Further, the high court said the child’s mother, identified as Dakota D., failed to prove Jeremiah met any of the exceptions for consent because she did not show he had abandoned her or the child or that he would be an unfit parent.

Jeremiah learned in June 2011 that Dakota, his ex-girlfriend, was pregnant. Five months later, he was contacted by an adoption agency caseworker who told him he had been identified as the baby’s father and that Dakota planned to put the baby, due Feb. 18, 2012, up for adoption, according to court documents. Jeremiah told the caseworker he did not want that, then tried many times to reach Dakota, but she did not return his calls, records say.

The child was born Feb. 9, but Jeremiah was not told of the birth. He contacted Dakota on Feb. 13, but she did not tell him the baby had been born. Jeremiah also repeatedly called the hospital and caseworker to try to learn of the birth, but they refused to tell him, citing privacy policies. The adoption was put on hold after Jeremiah filed his appeal.

Dakota later testified in court that she did not tell Jeremiah of the child’s birth because she did not want him to know about it during the five days he had to object to the adoption.

A Hall County court ruled in the mother’s favor, saying Jeremiah could have hired an attorney sooner, but the Nebraska Supreme Court reversed that ruling last year, noting the mother’s deception. The lower court then ruled in Jeremiah’s favor, and Dakota appealed, arguing he is not a fit parent because he has an unstable work history, has used drugs and has a criminal record, among other things.

She also argued that Jeremiah neglected the child after she was born, and did not provide financial support for her or the child.

But the state’s high court rejected those arguments Friday, saying Jeremiah’s criminal record consisted of misdemeanor convictions as a teen. The court also noted that Jeremiah has denied any drug use, and that he has a stable job paying more than $12 an hour.

“And in any event, low income or an unstable job history does not alone establish parental unfitness,” Nebraska Supreme Court Justice Michael McCormack wrote for the court.

The high court also rejected arguments that Jeremiah did not provide financial support.

“Dakota clearly does not want to have Jeremiah in the life of the child, and she chose to not provide Jeremiah with a fair opportunity to offer financial support,” McCormack wrote.

Jeremiah’s attorney, Mark Porto of Grand Island, said the next step will be to file a paternity action in an effort to establish custody and visitation issues.

“He’s thrilled that he’ll be able to be a part of his daughter’s life,” Porto said.

An attorney for Dakota did not immediately return a message left Friday.

Weller children file lawsuit against state DSHS

Attorney says agency was told of peril many times before acting

The Wellers were convicted of imprisoning, starving and beating their adopted twins. Sandra received a sentence of 20 years, and Jeffrey received 21 years. (Steven Lane/The Columbian)

Five children who were abused by their parents in Vancouver have filed a multimillion-dollar lawsuit against the state, alleging that the Department of Social and Health Services failed to adequately respond to dozens of complaints about their welfare over an eight-year period.

Jeffrey and Sandra Weller of Vancouver each were sentenced March 20, 2013, to two decades in prison for imprisoning, starving and beating their adopted twins. A Clark County jury found Sandra Weller guilty of nine separate counts related to the twins’ abuse; Jeffrey Weller was found guilty of 13, related to both the twins’ abuse and assaults against the couple’s biological children.

The children’s Seattle attorney, David Moody, filed the lawsuit on behalf of the children Friday in Clark Superior Court.

One of the children’s teachers alone warned the DSHS a dozen times about possible abuse of the children and urged that they be removed from the Weller home, Moody said.

“He has documents he kept,” Moody said Friday. “He has voice-mail messages. There are a number of educators from the local school district who voiced serious warnings to DSHS over a period of years.”

“Those concerns were ignored every time,” he said.

The lawsuit follows a $54 million tort claim the children filed Dec. 18 with the DSHS. Tort claims give public agencies a 60-day notice of a lawsuit and allows them an opportunity to settle a case before litigation.

In this case, the children received no response, Moody said.

John Wiley, a DSHS spokesman, said the agency often does respond to and resolve tort claims prior to litigation.

“However, this case is complex, involving numerous plaintiffs alleging negligence based on activities that occurred over a number of years. As such, it requires more than the statutory 60 days to analyze and investigate the merits of the plaintiffs’ claim,” Wiley said. “It would not be in the taxpayers’ best interest to quickly make a settlement offer on a $54 million claim without a reasonable and diligent investigation into that claim by the state.”

Wiley said the agency has no other comment on the lawsuit at this time.

“We’ll let the court decide the merits of the case,” he said. “We don’t comment on the merits of the case.”

The lawsuit also alleges that the DSHS failed to obtain Sandra Weller’s Child Protective Services history in California, where she adopted the twins with her ex-husband. There were seven referrals about Sandra Weller’s possibly abusing and neglecting the twins and some other foster children who were in her care between 1998 and 2002, the lawsuit states. At one point, the state of California revoked her foster care license and took the twins into protective custody, according to the lawsuit.

Some of the complaints that Washington caseworkers allegedly ignored included allegations of threats against one of the twins’ lives and withholding food as punishment, according to the lawsuit.

For example, in April 2004, the DSHS received a complaint that Sandra Weller had told the 8-year-old female twin that, “If I had a knife right now, you would be gone,” according to the lawsuit. A month later, the agency received another complaint that the twins were “so stressed they are literally pulling their hair out,” the lawsuit states.

In September 2004, there was a complaint that the Wellers locked food cabinets in the house and locked the children in their room, which had an alarm on the door, the lawsuit says.

DSHS social workers visited the Weller home in October 2004. On Nov. 1, 2004, the social worker concluded that the allegations of negligent treatment or maltreatment were “unfounded,” according to the lawsuit.

The DSHS finally removed the children from the Weller home Oct. 7, 2011, after one of the twins left a note about their abuse at her therapist’s office.

“Please, help,” the twin wrote. “Behind the laundry room door is a big wooden stick covered in blood. They use it on me and (my brother) … If you leave without us, we’ll all ran (sic) away.”

The twins were substantially underweight and malnourished when they were taken into state custody, according to testimony at the Wellers’ trial.

They also testified at trial that Jeffrey Weller, often at the instruction of Sandra, regularly beat them with a 42-inch-long piece of scrap lumber. Police investigators found it stained with blood.

Moody, the children’s attorney, specializes in civil litigation against the DSHS related to the abuse of children or vulnerable adults. He said he won the largest jury verdict award against the DSHS — $17.8 million — in February 2000 in a vulnerable adult abuse case in Pierce County in which he demonstrated that the DSHS was negligent by inadequately investigating abuse allegations.

Copyright, Child Custody and Cocaine in the County Courts

June 11, 2013 § Leave a comment

Copyright, Child Custody and Cocaine in the County Courts

Once upon a time there was  The Steele Law Firm LLC, IL SOS records show it was formed by  a 2006 University of Minnesota Law school graduate, John Lawrence Steele Jr. Esq.  Billed as a family law firm in 2008 -2011, the Chicago, IL practice, the Steele Law Firm LLC was fighting custody battles and purported pornography pirates. Yes, budding family law attorney, John Steele was devoted to saving children and the tranny porn industry! He started filing suits against 1000′s of John Does, dubbed himself the “pirate slayer” and set out to make cool millions! Despite John Steele having a fine ring to it for a porn name, perhaps the Steele Law Firm wasn’t catchy enough for copyright trolling; seems Steele decided to try on some other names: Media Copyright Group, Steele Hansmeier, Prenda, Anti-Piracy Law Group and the Chicago Family Law Group LLC.  Maybe it still wasn’t quite the right fit because in a rather complex web of “stories”, Steele claims to have retired, sold his family law firm to Peter R. Olson of the Peter Olson Law Firm and blogger extraordinaire Solo in Chicago.

Craigslist, where the finest lawyers come to but and sell law firms!

Now, according to a Solo in Chicago  blog post by Glenview,  IL native and Domestic Relations attorney, Peter R. Olson Esq. – in October 2008 he was checking out Craigslist,  looking for God knows what; and he found a law firm for sale.  By golly, it just happened to belong to his buddy, John the Pirate Slayer Steele! Despite the fact that Peter Olson had his own law firm and his Des Plaines condo was being foreclosed on and he was being sued by multiple creditors the purchase of a family law firm associated with pornography must have struck him as a solid investment.

No offense to Craigslist! Craigslist is great! Everyone knows that you can get some wonderful and affordable items on Craigslist: intimate encounters, a dorm fridge, slightly used slipcovers, re-homed lawn gnome, law firms – you know, really important stuff!  A quick look at the Cook County docket shows that Mr. Steele seems to have dropped all but one or two of his special  family clients in the summer / fall of 2011. But who needs clients when you’ve got a *found it on Craigslist* law firm to control! There is still no clarity about who actually owns the Steele Law Firm turned Chicago Family Law Group. Court documents show over a year of changing names, attorney, and firms numbers and stories with no end or truth in sight. Surely, NO ONE has ANY suspicion that they are laundering copyright money through that family law firm. No, doubt the Criminal Investigations Unit of the IRS won’t have any questions about Steele or Olson’s explanation about THAT firm. <cough*cough> Especially after that deposition about not paying any taxes! Nevis? St. Kitts? Offshore accounts? Trusts? Really? Come on guys who owns the CFLG?

So what happens when lawyers go rogue? 

Despite Steele’s claims of retirement and the Prenda was solely owned by attorney, Paul A Duffy, Steele seemed to be popping up all over the country at all sorts of court dates. As Steele showed up in court room after court room, some other things seemed to follow.  Yes, it was an outcry from many of extortion, lies, belligerent pleadings, threats in the hallway, improper service, questionable rulings in questionable places, and altered states.  Claims of identity theft, forgeries, and out and out lies.  It seems everyone affiliated with Steele stands accused of being involved with fraud. In time it seems most of the country caught on to the tricks and were no longer going to be fooled by troll games. On May 6th 2013, the Honorable Otis D Wright II issued an order for sanctions against Steele and some his minions in the form of 81k, a referral to the IRS criminal investigations unit and United States Attorney Office and the state and federal bar associations. Further, Judge Wright used words like “moral turpitude” as he described Steele, his minions and their business model. Still Cook County and St. Claire County seemed to be very willing to indulge the same behaviors that other federal court judges felt to be possibly criminal in nature.   Oh the men of Prenda fought hard to sue the internet or anyone that dared to speak out about their experiences with Prenda or Steele and they fought to do it in St. Claire County. Gosh, hate much?

Rut-Ro-Raggy! The Feds want to talk to ya!

But it seems that there is a little problem, the Feds are in St. Clair County. Moreover, it seems that a buddy of Steele, James Fogarty was dealing some coke to some judges, Cook and Christ. Christ  died of an overdose of cocaine allegedly provided to him by Fogarty. It looks that the drugs and mess don’t begin or end there or with those three people or that court system.

Bloomberg News and both touched on the Steele  – Forgarty connection or at least what they knew about at the time. But is there more to that story? Read the news of the impact that cocaine had in the St. Clair court cases, is it any different in Will County or Cook County?

There were a lot of questionable rulings and the cocaine / dealer connection now explains much of how those rulings came to be in St. Clair Co. but what about the other counties?

Great! We’ve got judges on drugs making rulings for their dealer and Steele is sending dealers to do his dirty work.

How can the average litigant stand a chance of receiving any sort of justice when they are up against attorneys that are allowed to practice despite the overwhelming evidence of their abuse and misuse of the legal process. Seriously, what sort of world do we live in where it’s okay for a lawyer to send a drug dealer to someones home to “serve them” legal papers. Papers which are now really under-fire because a tsunami of evidence has surfaced to show that the “pirate slayer” is really the honeypot pusher. Could it get anymore disgusting?

How can anyone get a shot at justice when the judge is indebted to their dealer; to keep them supplied with cocaine and heroine and to keep their drug problem a secret?   It’s an environment where blackmail and extortion flourish and the innocent suffer the worst consequences. St. Clair news has already reported on how rulings were made in favor of the dealer. If you look at Cook County and Will County, is any different? When judges and lawyers get caught up in child porn, trafficking, drugs and dirty money – it’s clear that rulings are made based on vices, not the law.

What about the children in family court? Is this why so many rulings appear to defy both man and God’s law? If it’s not because of a vice, why are so many people crying out with nearly identical stories about their children being sent to live with their abuser? How does the court justify cutting off all contact with the protective parent? Now that the court has embarrassed “Parental  Alienation”, how come they always seem to accuse the non-alienating parent of alienation?  What is seen frequently is that the alienating parent pretends to be the “friendly parent” and accuses the other parent of PAS. The court then places the child with the REAL PA parent on the grounds that that parent will foster a relationship with the child and the other parent and then the REAL PA parent joins the court in cutting  off all contact with the other parent akin to a termination of parental rights. Why isn’t THAT parental alienation?  Why are children so frequently turned over to abusers despite the overwhelming evidence?  There are cases where the parent is clearly involved in drugs, child pornography, sexual abuse, and other harmful behaviors and the judges punish the parent that offers the court proof. It almost seems like the more evidence the protective parent has, the worse the ruling. The parents with no evidence of abuse and false allegations win.  The parents with pictures of the other parent watching child porn on the computer and witnesses of physical abuse lose. Good parents are disposable. Unlike coke and porn, good people and good parents just don’t seem to have much value anymore.

Looking at the fall out in St. Clair, the news lists some rulings that were not made because of the law or the merits of the case, the rulings were made based on vices and personal issues. This has to be eradicated. The very purpose of the legal system is to enforce the law for the betterment of society.  When lawyers are allowed to use forged  documents, extortion and break the law   – justice is denied. Evil prevails. When judges are beholden to their dealers, the law becomes useless. The best pleading or the most skilled lawyer won’t help the case, because it’s decided on a drug deal, not the law. We might as just cancel court and send the judges home, because noting good comes of this situation.

It’s great that the FBI is investigating St. Clair, but they need to come take a look at why Judge Pornlito was allowed to sit on the bench in Will County watching porn on the county computer on the tax payer dollars while making decisions about the futures of children and families. They need to look at why the Cook County Judge(s) in the Lucy Vega case doesn’t want to see the evidence of the father allegedly watching child porn. They need to look at why so many complaints about Due Process and abusive and erratic behavior are posted on the Robing Room about Judge Raul Vega in room 3001 at the Daley Center. They need to look at why Child Representative Jerry S. Goldberg used someone with a history of domestic violence to provide “professional supervision” between alleged abusers and their children. How about the DOJ coming in to take a look at the blatant ADA violations?

It wouldn’t take a big fancy sting. It just takes sitting in a few court rooms for a few days and taking a look at the records. (The complete record)

A check on the ARDC web site shows that John Steele, Peter Olson, and Paul Duffy are still free to practice law today. The judges of Will and Cook County go unchecked.


We need more Judge Wright’s – to judge right. We need eyes on the court and people to speak out about it and not shut up until the problems are fixed. We need the FBI to look at the similarities in judgments in Will, Cook and St. Clair Co. – maybe that won’t be the only similarity they find.  The common threads might be right in front of their eyes. Really, right in front of your eyes.

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. —A new law aims to protect the parental rights of members of the military while they are deployed.

Gov. Susana Martinez signed the Service Member Child Custody Act on Saturday. The law prevents any changes to child custody arrangements while either parent is deployed. Officials said they hope the law will make life a little easier.

“You get calls from service members who are deployed where it’s just devastating to hear that they’ve been served with custody papers, and they’re fighting a war and trying to figure out what’s going on with their kids,” said Amanda Pagan, a National Guard judge advocate general.

Martinez said the law means service members can focus on their work abroad instead of thinking about custody battles back home.

It took lawmakers three years to craft the law.

A Judge’s View of “Best Interests of the Children”

Please be sure to read the editor’s note at the end.

Highlights of a speech by San Diego’s Honorable Lisa Drunk on June 31st

I am honored to appear before you tonight at this meeting of the San Diego County Bar Association. Thank you for inviting me to speak on my views on the best interests of children as judges see them. This is a very important matter as it is essential to our careers as jurists, attorneys, and court service providers.

As an experienced family law judge, I am tasked with upholding the law in my courtroom and serving the best interests of children. This is a difficult job, one to which I must give a great deal of consideration and attention to creating the best possible outcome to the people who really matter, judges and our friends.

When litigants enter my courtroom, they must understand that I am God and the law is what I say it is. If they question this, I will take their children, property, and other privileges away from them. They have no rights, only privileges which I allow them to have. They have no right to trial by jury, no right to due process of law, and no right to anything except to bask in the glow of my presence so long as they do not annoy me.

If one dares annoy me, I will quickly arrange for arrest and imprisonment. This is why I have armed deputies in my courtroom, to silence anybody who dares to annoy me, just as I did to that unruly mother Joanna Slivka who dared speak when I told her to be quiet. I decide who can talk and what they can say. The five days she spent in jail for thinking otherwise is only a down payment on what I’ll do to her if she ever sets foot in my court again.

My dear friends and colleagues Judge Christine Goldsmith and Judge Lorna Alksne have recently done likewise to that nasty man who wrongly believes that the US Constitution is the law of the land and dared challenge them.

In our courts, WE JUDGES ARE THE LAW and people like him should remember that.

We family law judges have all discussed the necessity of arrests and incarceration at length and know full well our roles in handling such annoying people. We are thankful to have the support of law enforcement, including our friends Sheriff Gore and Chief Lansdowne, in such matters.

clearing throat, sipping water

Children are property of the state…

Wild cheers from audience, Judge Lisa Drunk pauses for a moment for quiet

Let me say that again, to be clear.

Children are property of the state, and this is good for the community.

The law clearly establishes that I can do whatever I fancy with children. There is no right to a jury in my court, and as we judges ensure that litigants are intimidated and bankrupt there is no right to appeal. This helps save taxpayers a great deal of money each year, by the way.

This duty to make decisions about children is well-understood by the entire family and juvenile judiciary across the United States. It is exemplified by the outstanding records of my esteemed colleagues Mark Ciavarella and Michael Conahan. They know that children are in our courts to enrich judges and our friends and have for many years skillfully extracted millions of dollars of profit from the kids appearing in their courtrooms on such ghastly serious charges as treasonous rebellion against school authorities. Kudos to them for their fine efforts!

Hearty applause from the audience plus a few loud cheers

As we judges rightfully demand, lawyers who appear in our courtrooms give campaign contributions to us and are careful to always support our re-elections. My friend, retired Judge Randa Trapp, was ever so right when she asked the lawyers appearing in her courtroom to give a show of hands in support of her re-election. They all supported her fully, and today she strongly supports incumbent judges. We judges here in San Diego are confident that our friends in the San Diego County Bar Association trust us to make the best use of children to ensure maximum profitability of the family law community.

If for some odd reason a short-sighted attorney dares oppose us, he will lose in court and may, if particularly annoying, be quickly arrested and cast into jail as our friends in law enforcement will see to that.

If an attorney supports us, he will be rewarded with ongoing profitable work as we judges endeavor to take as much time as possible to settle any matter before us and to maximize potential for continued conflict. Children appreciate this, I hear their gratitude when I speak with them to explain how we judges help them. They long to help serve justice and know when their parents fight, our whole community benefits.

The practices that I as a judge apply daily benefit the community. There are many, but I will highlight the three most important.

First and foremost, children are the property over which I can ensure parents will war with each other. War between parents is good for the court and community as it ensures the income and job security for court administrative staff, law enforcement judicial security staff, as well as judges and all of my attorney, mediator, and mental health professional friends in the community.

As a judge, it is my first obligation to uphold government power. By stripping children from parents and rewarding them for attacking each other, I can decide how to best advance this goal consistently. The children are grateful as they know I am powerful and want to help them meet their highest potential to enrich the community. They wish to serve me in any way they can and tell me this every time I meet with them.

Secondly, we judges must reward skilled story-telling. It is the foundation upon which conflict is built. Conflict is good for the courts and our friends and is therefore good for the children. We must encourage it by all means. Any parent who blesses us with another accusation of domestic violence or child abuse is particularly worthy of reward as these are the issues we can use to make ourselves known as protectors of women and children, gain ever more votes, and ensure our continued ability to serve our community.

Thirdly, we must avoid clarity in our court orders. Clarity endangers conflict. This is simply unacceptable and unprofitable. Further, clarity in court orders requires more careful thought. I am simply too busy considering how to reward stories and claims without evidence in thousands of cases before me so I can ensure continuing conflict to have time to waste on expressing clear court orders. Also importantly, my attorney friends like to write and argue over their versions of orders to increase their billable hours and profits. As a judge who derives my income and campaign contributions from their work, I want to keep them busy so they keep my campaign support flowing in.

Cheers of “thank you Lisa!” from audience

My SDCBA friends each year send cards with campaign contribution checks to thank me for thoughtfully applying these practices. I want to you all to know that I very much appreciate this and remember carefully who contributes to our community.

I would like to deeply thank all my supporters for their campaign support checks and referrals to my friends. I particularly thank Sheriff Bill Gore, City Attorney Jan Goldsmith, and our esteemed friendStephen Doyne who have all done so much for our community. Thank you also to the entire San Diego County Bar Association for yet another solid recommendation for my re-election.

Thank you all for your continued support!

Wild applause, slowly dies down

Next to speak will be my esteemed supervisor, Judge Lorna Alksne, who has taught me so much about being a good judge and who is a fine example for all of us.

Audience applauds quickly, spotlight shifts to black-robed woman walking up to podium

Editor’s Note: We realize that some of our readers have been so traumatized by judges like the fictional Lisa Drunk (based upon the real convicted drunk driver Judge Lisa Schall) that they can see only how real this “speech” seems and might have missed the clues that it is a dark satire. Many of them may have lost their senses of humor along with their children, finances, and health and see only the reality of what the family law courts did to destroy not only their lives, but the lives of their children, too.

While this “speech” is indeed fictional, it includes links to many articles and other sources that illuminate that it is very close to the actual mentality of many officials of the corrupt and abusive judiciary and government of San Diego County, California.

Joanna Slivka, named in the “speech”, is but one of many victims of the abusive San Diego courts. In her case, she was arrested and jailed for five days on the orders of Judge Lisa Schall because she was so emotionally upset about being told she could not tell her side of the story. The Commission on Judicial Performance publicly admonished Schall for abusing her contempt-of-court powers against Slivka. Yet Slivka’s family has suffered far more court-assisted abuse than just this. Possibly the worst of it is that her daughter was reportedly sexually assaulted at a group divorce therapy session at a church that she was ordered by the court to attend. Like some other families, they have been abused by family law courts in multiple California counties as the corruption in family law courts is widespread across California and the entire United States.

San Diego judges are working with each other and their family and friends in law enforcement to attack the growing number of parents who are calling for reform of the courts. Family law courts in San Diego are a form of organized crime that violates US and state laws as well as the human rights of children and parents. Local law enforcement will never, ever protect the children and parents of San Diego from the ongoing violation of law and human rights by these judges. That’s because they are in the pocket of the judiciary, exchanging favors with each other to quash political dissent in the region.

Most parents are unable to mount an appeal when their children and they are harmed by the frequent abuses in these courts. Even if they are able to obtain the funds to appeal, the judges have often stacked the deck by wrongly manipulating the admission of evidence and testimony to create a flawed court record that supports their prejudiced opinions. Some even go so far as to order clerks and court reporters to alter court records and transcripts. Further, records are often “lost” or “misplaced” as necessary to support a judge’s opinions. The court records in San Diego cannot be trusted, just as the judges cannot be trusted. In such a climate of corruption, appeals are likely to often be ineffective because the court records are relied upon for appeal.

The San Diego courts and law enforcement will not do their jobs competently or fairly because of the family connections and revolving door between the courts, district attorney, and senior law enforcement positions in the county. DA Bonnie Dumanis is buddies with City Attorney Jan Goldsmith, a former judge, who is married to family law Judge Christine Goldsmith. Sheriff Bill Gore, Judge Lorna Alksne, the County Board of Supervisors, and many others are connected in this web of corruption and abuse.

Many of the judges and law enforcement officials involved deserve prosecution and imprisonment. Instead, the nepotism and corruption in the county provide them with aid in politically persecuting their growing numbers of enemies composed in part of many parents who are fed up with the abuses and injustices being inflicted upon their children and their families.

Whores of the Court: The Fraud of Psychiatric Testimony and the Rape of American Justice

Booklist Mini-review

A take-no-prisoners condemnation of psychiatric experts being waved into the witness box, this account trashes psychiatry in general as a quack profession. Hagen (a psychology professor) assails most of the diagnostic tools of the field in her text, which roams among court cases whose outcome hinged on the testimony of mental-health experts. Her fundamental contention is that psychiatry is a junk science whose theories when extended to matters of legal culpability go against common sense. Indeed, Hagen assumes the posture of that legendary legalism, the “reasonable person,” and her prose is peppered with exclamations and rhetorical questions like “Who could believe that?” which might annoy as many readers as it might convince about whatever points are in question. Among them are such topically current items as battered-wife syndrome, recovered memory claims, post-traumatic stress syndrome, and urban psychosis claims. The average person could easily encounter in divorce and child custody litigation the situations Hagen vigorously complains of, so her energetic attack could gain considerable attention.Gilbert Taylor

PA had a GAL/PC program since 2007. Due to many complaints, lawsuits and federal law enforcement actions against the court system and federal indictment of a GAL, the law changed and it states:
“Elimination of Parenting Coordination.Rule 1915.11-1.
Only judges may make decisions in child custody cases. Masters and hearing officers may make recommendations to the court. Courts shall not appoint any other individual to make decisions or recommendations or alter a custody order in child custody cases. Any order appointing a parenting coordinator shall be deemed vacated on the date this rule becomes effective. Local rules and administrative orders authorizing the appointment of parenting coordinators also shall be deemed vacated on the date this rule becomes effective.
[Pa.B. Doc. No. 13-848. Filed for public inspection May 10, 2013, 9:00 a.m.]”
