I am certainly no fan of the Solano Courts as they are processing cases with a predetermined focus on areas where domestic violence and drug abuse are identified. Certainly, there is a high inconsistency between Judges. Which is why the recent article in the reporter about protestors in front of the Solano Superior Courts interests me.
On day number 1 when I was in Judge Unger’s Court, she set aside orders prepared by Judge Ellis. It took about 1 year of legal crap to get to the Judge Ellis ruling. What the Fuck? Judge Unger was totally unprepared. She seems to watch to much Judge Judy. She is also completely opposite of Judge Ellis. Look no further for obvious examples of Judges being inconsistent.
Now Judge Healy provided a response according to the Reporter:
“Litigants may get angry at a judge, especially in contentious family law cases, when they don’t get what they want. Any party who believes that a judge ruled incorrectly can appeal that ruling to the appellate court to correct any legal error. To date, not one of my rulings has been reversed by any appellate court.”
If you have ever been to Solano Family Court — You notice one thing — Judges practice defensive Judging. Judges rarely explain any aspect of their decision. And many of those contentious cases are decided with the input of a biased mediator (Ms.Black providing the crazy opinion as an extreme). Ms. Black is famous for taking any words spoken by the children which generally mirror what the mother says and as a matter of fact the mother is often using the children to tell her lies.
Further, how many family law cases go to the appellate Court? Fuck you Judge Healy for giving a typical bullshit answer given by any idiot lawyers not attached to reality. Most people do not have time or circumstances to challenge all the legal bullshit. The most solid cases of Judicial bullshit, even if there is money and ability to challenge a decision, do not go forward, because one parent recognizes the damage to the children from further litigation.
Everyday there is bullshit in the Courts and it all starts with a lack of ethics. Politics and workload management have a high level of influence on how any case is handled. Then we get into the more mundane dishonesty such as the editing out of Judges off hand comments by the Court Reporters–Usually you will see “…..” whenever the Judge said something stupid; this may vary with Judge but I have taped proceedings and compared them against transcripts. The ‘…” always manages to appear when the Judges says something stupid or awkward.
Then all of this leads to a crap shoot of what the hell does a Judge decide a case upon. Most lawyers are honest but there quite a few that should not be allowed to practice law. The dishonest ones are good at the cheap practices such as advising clients how to circumvent court orders– see Valerie Kraml example. A much larger part of the crap is all the lying…a vast majority of complaints about domestic violence, sexual abuse, drug use are never substantiated in any way. Women’s advocate groups teach women to use these lies as tactics in some cases. Lies are a large part of any docket. Lawyers lie on top of the lies by litigants. The mediators add their bias and add more lies. The problem is the Courts tolerate lies, as a matter of fact, it has gotten to the point that, if necessary, you should, you must lie…just to even the playing field. (Lawyers love this because they make money off of volumes of paperwork.)
So in the photo below, the woman holds up figures about 90% of pedophiles go to the abusers. I think only of the fact that vast majority of women who charge sexual abuse, domestic violence, etc, etc. are lying. Unfortunately, there is probably a small number of cases where the children go to an abusive parents despite the valid claims of the mother. (The photo is from the report and you should go see the article for full story of the whining women’s advocates side of the story.)
My heart goes out to those children who do go to the abuser. But most often the abuser is the mother and the focus of the protestor seems really to be about the times when child goes to the father. And this protest represents what is typical women better organize for action than fathers.
Bottom line is that Family Courts are fucked up — its gotten to the point where perjury by Court Mediators goes unpunished, which is way beyond perjury by parents. Its a big business for lawyers. Its an industry. There is too much money involved to overhaul this bad system and usually the money grubbing lawyers are the ones in charge of improving the system.
This gets to April first, right around the corner. Let’s make it a kill a greedy or dishonest lawyer day. Find the most dishonest or greedy lawyer and punch him/her. Better yet shank the bastard. Or if your lucky enough to own a gun…you know what to do. Hmmm.. Valerie Kraml sounds like a good target. Happy April Fools Day/Kill a Lawyer Day.
