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:

Update 209a Hearings

On September 27, 2013 I attended a restraining order session at Quincy Court.

This session made it clear that our judiciary still has a problem with respect to the issuance and renewal of 209a restraining orders.

First up were single party petitions for extensions or termination of a restraining order.  In most cases the restraining order was continued or terminated based upon which individual appeared the defendant or the plaintiff.

Next up were the cases where both parties appeared.

However that was seldom the case.  What was common was a plaintiff seeking a restraining order without a legal basis for obtaining one.

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.
