Well I want through hell with meyers I had my son from the time he was born instill he was 5 years old and I want to court with my sons father and his father got him because the father said he could take care of him better then me and very sense his father got him my son has been living at his grandparents house well his father is living at his girlfriends and I have been fighting in court for 2 years now and still fighting for my son and Meyers never wants to hear what my lawyer has to say at all and I think he is very wrong on some of the things he does too like one court time he was texting on his cell phone when we were trying to get are trail done something should really be done with him soon before he really hurts someone by doing the wrong thing when he thinks its right because he likes a lawyer better then the either

I feel that Judge Meyer's does have the children's interest in mind, but also feel he has already made his decisions about what he will or won't do before he even gets to hear all that is happening, like he really doesn't care( but that is only my opinion, and how I was made to feel during a court case that I was asked to testify on behalf of one parent) I felt as though nothing I was saying was being taken seriously, or heard at all- I was quite taken aback by this. The children involved were given to the wrong parent and they have suffered due to this decision ever since, it is very sad. I am very sure that some people have had good experience, but there is always bad along with good, it's just the way things are.

Hey I want to ask you a few tings about your court case if you don't mind. Did you appeal the trail after the judges ruling of giving your ex custody? Who have the lawyers been that were involved in the court case? How many times have you taken your ex back trying to get custody back?

Sorry to ask you all of them personal things. But I have a court case going on right now that is somewhat similar to yours. So thinking maybe if I have some insight on what happened in other cases I might be able to help mine.

Thank you very much!
I need more info

Yes Judge Meyers is still at it and definitely still not protecting children. He takes them away from the protective parent to give to the abusive parent. He does not care about our children and does not care about their best interest. He is a very mean Judge. He is all for the men. He does not care that there are children out there crying themselves to sleep at night because of him and his control. We need a new Judge in Essex County and CPS is definitely no better. It's all about who has more money too. I would definitely vote to get him out.
I have a custody case going on right now. I am floored on some of the things I am reading. I thought I was going crazy thinking this couldn't be true. Judges don't lie, they don't twist words. I didn't think my ex would have had a chance to get custdoy. I was so wrong after I went in front of this judge. He plays favors with lawyers. In his rulings he makes up lies or twist words to make one parent look bad and the other to look good. I want to vomit verytime I have to go in front of him. I have been told its hard to try to get a judge dissmissed from your case. It's hard to prove the lies and the things that happen in that court room. But I feel better now that I found this site. I know u am not going crazy and he really is like this and there are other people that have had to deal with the same stuff as me.

From where I stand Judge Richard Meyers is a monster. He has no business being a judge in any court of law especially when it comes to Family court and custody of children. From what I am told he hates women because his wife took his child from him in a custody battle. He is bi-polar in the court room one minute he is for one side or the other and the next minute he is bashing which ever person he so chooses to bash. Judge Myers is not listening to the facts he fly's bye the seat of his pants on his given mood. So tired of dealing with a crooked judge and his unjustified emotions in the court room. I want him disbarred for good Judge Richard Myers can't continue being a Family court judge or any other judge when he is as BIAS as they come. Quote "Richard Myers stated to me that one provision was not in the court order when I brought it to his attention" then I received my court papers almost 2 weeks later which stated the provision I inquired about and my child was not suppose to be around certain parties which our wonderful judge overlooked allowed and obviously didn't read his own paper work. I will get a new attorney or represent myself, but I am requesting a new judge in the matter. I will fight for my child in a proper way according to the law, but refuse to be shafted by a corrupt Judge that is Bias and is a woman hater. Richard Myers should step down from his position while he still can without being prosecuted for being unjust and corrupt.

Judge Myers is not as crooked as you think, he is fair and unfortunately is human, I am sorry your case did not got as u wanted, maybe there is something that you are not revealing by complaining here. He is fair and does do the right thing. When emotions are at their highest the reality of the situation is not clear to anyone involved. Maybe you should take a step back at look at your situation from afar and re evaluate your self. Judge Myers is not a monster or a woman hater. He does have a very hard job having to decide what to do when 2 parents are constantly throwing accusation about one another around. Would you be able to make the perfect decision in his shoe. I think not. BTW I am not a friend or college or family member. I just have a lot of respect for someone who has to do such a exhausting job trying to sort out most of the time bull that parents throw at him. Get a life and think.

Did you even read all the comments here? Most of them have to do with how this judge is a bad judge. I don't see many post of people sticking up for him. I personally have had to deal with him. I can and will say he is one of the worst judges I have ever been in front of. Not that I have been in front of a lot of judges, but I have had to deal with Lawless in Plattsburgh too, and people say Lawless is bad judge. But Meyer makes Lawless look like an angle. Lawless at lest bases his rulings off facts and the truth. Meyer does not, he don't read all the facts that are proven in the court room, he don't listen to the kids law gardens, he plays favors with the lawyers, he lies, he twist words and things that were said in the court room. I get it that not everyone is going to have an open and close case. But he does favor the dad more then the mother. Which no one should be favored at all. A child should be placed with whatever parent that suites the child the best. But even then both parents should be active in the child's life. Not taking one parents rights away from them to their child. I can maybe understand doing something like that if the parent wasn't the best parent and they had some of their own problems they need to work on for them self's. But if the parent does not, there is no reason why they would do that. Judge Meyers makes homes more broken homes more for the child or children on his rulings. Then after he find outs that the parent is fighting back for their rights he makes that parent jump though hoops to get their rights back, so he's hoping the parent gives up and gets sick of going back to court. Then every time that happen it takes longer and stuff starts to get covered up. But there is going to be that one parent that's not going to put up with this and is going to fight back. I am and will be that person/parent.

I first want to tell you how sorry I am for you and what you have to go through. Just remember you are not alone. I know Meyer makes you feel like you victim. It really is called abuse. You really are a victim. But there are others out there that are feeling the same pain as you. I just had something like you are talking about happen to me. He said one thing in the court room, but when I got the court order in the mail it didn't say it. I called my lawyer to ask him about it, but seems like my lawyer never wants to call me back. So I am still waiting on that answer on why the judge didn't put it in the court order. You are so right, this is a corrupt court room. I have had other lawyers tell me the way that court room was months after my suspicions already came up with this, after I already witnessed things happen in his court room, them lawyers just confirmed it for me. I am getting to the point where I am getting sick and tired of the way this court room treats me. I am going to start fighting back. I'm happy that I found this blog/site knowing I am not the only one that feels this way about this court room. I am a mother that's going to start fighting back. I'm not going to sit back and watch my child's life be ruined by this judge, I want what's best for my child. I hope more people come together and we all can fight this together.

I love the job!" Essex County Judge steps out

Rick Meyer announces he will re-run for Judge

Prior to sitting on the bench for 10 years, he was County Attorney for 18 years. An article in Denton Pub states he is a A loyal Republican". Do we want a "loyal Republican" (or a "loyal" anyone for that matter)? The longterm connection he has to the Sheriff's Dept, Social Services, DA, etc. is bothersome. A Judge must set aside his "loyalties" and work in the best interest of the people he serves. That would be the children, mothers and fathers that come before him.
This year you will have the opportunity to take action (rather than comment on a public forum). You can vote to keep Judge Meyer or you can vote for change.

After I asked for people to come forward to help take Meyer's out of office, I was called by the State Troopers and was told that Judge Meyer's wanted me arrested for "Aggravated assault". Seems that allegedly, taking him out of office can be misconstrued as a death threat.
Meyer's informed an ADA that she should not investigate my report that a level 3 sex offender taking classes at St Joes Rehab molested my children because I was "delusional" because the children were "never" alone with the pedophile who was also taking the same classes. He signed the order placing them there after I screamed at him in Court not to place my children with "a pedophile". I sent a copy of his signature on the order to Betty Littles office to prove my point.
The new DA, the same one who should of known not to ask for my arrest, stated that Richard Meyer had not committed a crime because I had gotten the ADA to finally investigate the matter. So, NO CRIME WAS COMMITTED!!! If most of us misdirect authorities, we go to jail just for trying!
If a Judge were to falsely claim that you were a dangerous person and he sent armed men to arrest you, would you be a bit concerned that they might shoot first and ask questions later to protect the Judge? The Press Republican has all the details. I had to threaten to throw a chair at a Judge unless I got my children away from Meyer's control and the PR would then have a news worthy reason to print all those details. I have my children as a result, should anyone ever have to threaten violence to free children from a situation where they become suicidal because of actions like Meyer's?
To the person that wrote this: I believe every word you said and know you probably didn't even include other truths because it can sound so outlandish to people (which is what corrupt people in power count on) that have not had any similar experience. I wish there was a way we could all know about each other and talk, but know it is even risky writing on a forum like this, let alone trying to figure out who the good guys are.

Wondering though, if you could refer me to the article you mentioned in the Plattsburgh Republican. Also I thought I had found an article about him being censured for being the plaintiff and judge on same case... I never printed it and am unable to find the article again. If anyone knows anything about this; can you refer me to it?

He has competition in the September primary and November General election.. Brian Barrett from Lake Placid is running against Meyer. He is running as a Democrat. He's young, sensible, bright and ready for the job. Also, the county clerk, Joe Provoncha has competition, Luke Hudak. Time for change.

Call his office or contact the Essex County Democratic Committee - they endorsed him and they could point you in the right direction. They have a website - ECDCNY.org (I think, or something like that). Just google them. I'm sure they'd appreciate the help.
