Perjury:  It's what keeps all courts ticking.  Perjury is the underlying basis of most legal actions, and the bastard child in Family Court.  Seldom, perhaps never has a Family Court judge referred to the DA an instance of perjury in a family court matter. Family Court judges knows the DA is not likely to prosecute.  Ergo, perjury is and remains a winning and sometimes profitable tactic.  

Before voting for an incumbant.  Ask your DA how many perjury prosecutions they've handled while in office.
                
Perjury has long been an effective, expensive tool in family and other courts.

With 12,000 records on file, Jonathan Swift said it best.




"Falsehood flies and the truth comes limping after; so that when men come to be undeceived it is too late: the jest is over and the tale has had its effect."

Likewise, perjury reaches the highest levels of the courts as government's self-made institutions such as the AOC acts to protect their own.



In California, the meltdown began with Judge Katherine Feinstein having the public believe California Courts were in dire fiscal trouble, while ignoring the AOC as the reason why.   

Initially, Judge Feinstein did not mention dismantling the Administration Office of the Courts, (the Courts alter-ego), would mean a huge part of the budget problems go away. 

Also no mention from Judge Feinstein about the AOC hiring while Courts were being closed shuttered.  More politics.   Then there's the matter of the AOC's criminal activity

That changed as the press caught wind of the reality of the tail wagging the dog, AOC.

And so it goes.  For more on California's AOC click here.





Greed

Perjury, greed, and professional jealousy is the toxic mix which contributes to bringing down law firms.  The most recent involving Anthony Pellicano who was involved in the divorce, custody, and child support of billionaire Kirk Kerkorian. 

And it was greed that made attorney Steven Simkin want a "Do Over" in his 2006 divorce settlement.



Less known however, is the state agents who want a share of the power...or who are too lazy to do their job.  Perjury finds it's way into their reports.  The San Diego Grand Jury report of 1992 wrote to then Senate President John Burton to remove immunity from state and county personnel.

Immunity removes motivation to do a good job.

The letter was ignored.

The courrts routinely compel so-called Mental Health experts to weigh in – at significant cost.  Or that ultimately, these so-called experts, control the case. 

And sometimes these professionals lie.  Not about the case, (although there is that) but about their conflict-of-interest.

Such as cases involving some  Custody Evaluators

Then, there's the con artists.  While Ron Lais was incarcerated, Familylawcourts.com heard from no fewer than 19 of his other victims.

All claims after sending Lais at least five thousand dollars, they never heard from him again.

reveals an almost complete lack of  Oversight of the courts:
 
1.  A lack of oversight is not limited to Family Court.  True oversight is the baseline problem for all companies and government.  The answer? Citizen review boards with the citizens not having any ties to an industry.

2.  That would take care of the lobbyists who routinely switch out occupations.

3.  Citizen involvement, not someone with a long career in public service who is then appointed to various boards and so-called Blue Ribbon Commissions.
 
4.  Otherwise, the Elkins Commission, which was a re-play of the 2000 Commission, will replay in another then years, with the players remaining in place.  Click here for a
State Audit of Marin and Sacramento which revealed the courts continue to appoint unqualified (and in some cases, unlicensed) attorneys and therapists.  Check out Seattle for how one "highly respected" therapist fought his way back in the system, to continue shredding lives with the help of State officials and various Psychology Boards. 

Practice Hint:  Due to the increased number of custody exchange murders, we recommend attorneys request judges order any custody exchange to be made at the local police department.  Should a murder occur, not only is it likely the crime will be recorded on a number of video cameras in an around the area, but any number of police officers would already on hand to effect a quick arrest.  The video could later be used as part of a plea deal, which would save the state trial costs.

5.  People would do well to realize business of government is: business.  As such, family court judges "outsource" much like sales reps; ordering a variety of "services" designed to interpret - instead of speaking to all involved, especially the children.

Who would prefer to be heard.  
 

Meanwhile, therapists lobbying for the National Marriage and Family Therapists associations, (as well as Court Services) continue lobbying for more involvement in the divorce and custody industry.   Not less.

It's called job protection. 

Changing this basic, outsourcing court dynamic, is in the best interests of the child.   Once a judge has direct contact with children, the need for the variety of other services often falls away.  This is why those in the divorce and custody industry hire lobbyists.  Change does not bode well for their bottom line.

6.   San Diego Director of Emergency Service, Dr. Bruce Hadley who grosses over 200k per year, hired former deputy Jesse Thrush, a convicted felon, as an EMT.  Thrush had been convicted of killing his girlfriend's daughter, a toddler with Downs Syndrome.   He applied for the job and was certified after his release from prison.
