Ever wonder how that
Massachusetts judge
who took your children
away and stripped you
of your house and assets
got to sit on the bench?
All judges were approved,
usually by unanimous,
vote, by the Governors
Council at a public hearing.
The audio for their
hearings over the last
couple of years can be heard here:

Shared Parenting and Abuse Prevention Due Process Petitions!

Following an injunction issued by the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court the Secretary of State's office will prepare two Initiative Petitions for shared parenting and due process rights in abuse protection cases. Signature gathering is excpected to begin by the end of the week (Sept. 20, 2013).

The shared paremnting petition would mandate a presumption of shared equitable custody when parents divorce while the abuse prevention petition would require that all due process rights of civil law be applied in abuse prevention cases.

Massachusetts Attorney General Rejects 'Abuse Protection' and Shared Parenting Petitions

Massachusetts Attorney General again refuses to certify petitions on 'abuse protection' due process rights and for a presumption of shared parenting.

The AG's excuse is that the two petitions will 'affect the powers of the courts'.  The real reason, however, is that they would require that justice be  administered in the courts and the welfare system for family court lawyers in particular would be drastically reduced.
