So when does the class action suit commence?
Where is the legal team to dismantle this Family Court madness?
The timid response by Sen. Leno's crack squad and the trepidation on behalf of the California BAR is already an engaging and damning documentary.
Here, being financially ruined by an overzealous commissioner of the court, Indiana continues to collect on behalf of California and will not invest one minute tampering with this interstate Family Court agreement...Blind Faith burrows deeper into the bizarre maze of malfeasance.

Again, where is the class action suit against Marin County Family Court?

All (Quacks) should be audited. Unfortunately, this quack has passed away before his bias/corrupt could be printed.

Judge Verna Adams is lazy and good for nothing. I tried to have her hear my case ex parte and she refused stating she was not the judge on the case. Then why are you sitting in his seat?????

She does not read anything that is given to her and finds ways not to make a ruling. Get rid of that old bag!!

P.S. I have full custody of our child

The Sonoma County Family Court System is also highly questionable. In particular, the family court service mediators are poorly trained and given far too much power. I am currently trying to figure out if one of their mediators (who has acted wholly unprofessionally) has the right to interview my nine-year-old child without my permission. My son's father and I share legal custody. I am in favor of the mediator contacting our son's long-term therapist given that she could then gather information without affecting him. Does anyone know if I am legally obliged to allow this person to meet with our son? And how did folks go about getting the Marin Court System audited? Sonoma County needs this, too.

I had and not sure it is over in Alameda County with the same problem. I was forced to take my Daughter for several years to a mediator of the court and all the Mediator did was lie about my Daughter and myself. The mediator went as far as having the court stop all of her therapy appointments because my Daughter kept telling them all that her Father was touching her inappropriately. I was appalled and shocked. I do not know what to tell you. They are all crooked and not to be trusted at this point. They completely took my Daughter away from me over summer because she was afraid of her Father and said we had too close of a relationship. I got her back because her Father slipped up in front of the mediator and decided he did not want to have our Daughter live with him. I am still in this and still very scared most the time. The Attorneys are very much involved in this gross turn on the laws. There are a few out there, but you have to have thousands of dollars to keep up with it. Like most after almost seven years I am destitute. I do not think I am much help, but here if you need to talk. I am sorry you are going through this. There are some people on this site that say different, but I have proof in all my documentations I have saved. There area many of us who have collected documentation and we are working on this.

Thank You, Debra, for this very kind response. I am sorry that your situation sounds extremely difficult as well. I would like to speak with you. How do you suggest we connect with one another? How have you connected with the other people with the same problems? I imagine we are both a little worried about going public at this point. Hope to hear back from you.

PLEASE HELP!
My friend is currently in a custody battle for her 1 year old soon. Beverly Wood is in charge of her case and is making terrible decisions regarding the welfare of my friend's baby. I don't understand how such a terrible person completely lacking insight and sensitivity could be named a Judge of anything. I feel so bad for my friend who is having her baby taken from her by a mentally unstable man who has no idea how to care for a child. My friend is a good mother and the system is not working to help her at all-- it is totally insane. I feel just as helpless as she does. What can I do?? What can she do? Is there anyone out there who can help???

I thought I was the only one going thru this problem but I can see this is an ongoing situation and nobody is doing anything about it. Where is Justice in this country. Why innocent children have to live with their abusive father and mothers have to be on supervised visits by only reporting that her child is being abused? And usually the mother is the one blamed at the end. Could any Senator please look into this problem that is happening in Marin for years? It is time to put an end to this behavior and help our children to live in lovable places and not in horror households. The worse of all is that they are put in that situation by unethical and questionable Judges.

Sonoma county is terrible. The Court Commision is corrupt, but there is hope. If you were a victim of one judge, a guy who dresses up like a cowboy and pretends he's a musician on weekend, puts on a robe and pretends he's a judge during the week there is hope. There is an add on Craigs List asking for information on him. Or do a search for online for him, the add comes up.

You sir, or madam, are a pedant; a sphincter that ought to shut your condescending mouth. Have you no respect for the fact that this court has mortally wounded great people like Dr.Vertkin. Shame on you.
