This weithman guy is a real dick head. I was in front of him when my now ex-wife filed for divorce.

This idiot signed an order for me to vacate my home without my ex-wife's lawyer, Tony Heald...another dick head, even filing a motion.

In my 1st appearace in front of Weithman I motioned contra based on the fact that I was thrown out of my home without anyone asking Weithman to do so. He simply ignored my motion contra. My ex's lawyer finally filed a motion to vacate 4 months later.

Note: Henry Shaw was the actual judge @ the time & he signed any domestic order that Weithman sent to him. Judge Shaw refuse to hear any of my motions..he let Weithman handle all domestic issues.

It was all a process created by, Weithman & Heald to establish an unfair playing field to negotiate.

O yeah, prior to the 1st hearing in front of Weithman my ex-wife admitted to adultery within deposition.

My advice to anyone that is married & makes 6 figure income...is not to live in Delaware County.

There are members of Delaware county judicial system that are criminals & they know it & the bragg about it.

Ask any Franklin County lawyer about Delaware Common Pleas court process. I contacted Tom Tyak & he refuses to do any cases in Delaware county

This incident allows one to Comprehend how Litigious our Society is. One can also conclude that the individual who was " victimized" may be seeking the help of a Lawyer. While, this may be Construed as a hypothetical, it is not Unfathomable. The Grounds have been set ( for Litigation) due to the assaulter being reprimanded for this Fiasco. The accuser can state that " a Hostile environment" was created after he reported this. How pathetic. We should be looking for Laughter in all aspects, not looking to Cash in, as might be the Case in this debacle. As stated this may or may not be True, Hence the term 'HYPOTHETICAL' being utilised.

There can't be two people that stupid as to spell loses, looses. Therefore might I suggest that Clown Face and Go To Hell are the same person posting under multiple names.

From what I understand he grabbed the employee by the shirt, pulled him close, and got in his face in a threatening manner. Probably just engaging in collective bargaining!!!

If an investigation would be done, looking inside that place....the people would realize that this is not the first inappropriate thing that has has happened. Hopefully the person who told won't be fired anytime soon. Tell me, who knows anything, would they say? could they say without fear for their jobs? Just asking.

I guess the judge felt he couldn't escape giving some punishment, this time. Others would be fired. Isn't that odd? A lot goes on there.

I like the way the judge wont disclose exactly what went on...I`d like to go in front of him and tell him I`d rather NOT tell him all the facts. The friggin MORONS work for US!!! they are accountable to US...I`d like to know what Twatman did and then have him AND Whitney FIRED.

I had Weithman in my divorce case.

I knew I was in trouble when Weithman continually looked at me during court 'frowning' each time but then looked at my wife as if she were the turkey at Thanksgiving dinner. She got everything she asked for, and more.... The fact that I filed for divorce as a result of (her) infidelity was immaterial.

I shed not a single tear when I read that Weithman was finally caught acting like a bully with no boundaries or consequences.

Throw the bum out.

I had to contend with Weithman through my divorce. He assigned me to pay child support for 2 kids for $1700 month. He looked my ex over like a piece of meat. I had to get the child support reduced through the CSEA and go around him when I got laid off. Weithman was a complete idiot and ineffective at his job. It only makes sense that he has gone through 2 divorces himself. I hope he is fired and loses all of his benefits.

BTW, Duncan Whitney, as the presiding judge for Weithman, should be removed from office for allowing this behavior. He can clearly see the orders Weithman writes. He signs them.

above 2 posts.....I also was screwed by this man.

Good news.....only 23 alimony checks left to write.

My Ex filed for lifetime support, and Delaware court had hearings to discuss.

Delaware court refused to make EX abide by divorce decree, but had Sheriff enforce it upon me.

What kept me sane was knowing everyone in the Delaware court system is at the pinnacle of their career. Without unions and their state job 90% of them are homeless.

I feel for all of you....been there.

1/1/2016 I get a huge pay raise, because I won't be paying the b1tch who ruined my life up to day of divorce.

I am re-married, and she is still alone. I have a house, and her in a crappy apartment.

I have been treated fairly by the Delaware County court system and have appeared before Magistrate Weithman.

People are always going to hate the magistrate and judge before whom they lost.

And in your case, your wife did not win lifetime support so you won in all reality.

I did win....however the law only applied to me and not her.

Sheriff's enforced divorce decree on me....my EX 6 years later has yet abide by it.

What is funny is I moved on, and she is in the past.

I did win.
