Unfortunately Parental Alienation is a very large part of this case. When this occurs the parent runs the risk of Long-term-effects.
Specific Problems of Children suffering from the Effects of Parental Alienation
1. Excessive feelings of guilt. This may be due to the knowledge deep down that the ostracized parent who has been vilified has done nothing wrong to deserve the kind of treatment received by the child or children. When this view occurs the child, especially when older, begins to suffer from guilt feelings.
2. Anger is a common reaction of many children to the process of alienation. The anger however will be expressed towards the target parent as one sides with one of the parents in the relationship against the other. The fact the children are forced into this kind of situation causes considerable distress and frustration and the response often is to show aggressive behavior towards the targeted parent in order to accommodate the programmer.

Dr. Richard Warshak, of Dallas clarifies:“Hoisted with their own petards, parents
who try to poison their children’s affections in order to win custody expect the courts to sympathize with their position.” And some parents “know exactly what they are doing and are counting on the court’s na¨ıvet´e about such matters. They think they can pull the wool over the judge’s eyes”
(Warshak, 2001, p. 114). In your case,Mother denied direct contact with son in 12-year-old custody case, they did!

Parental Alienation stems from intolerance, denigration, prejudice, and deep-seated
dysfunction. In like manner, narcissistic abuse is caused by malignant self love and unadulterated arrogance. The deception of the Narcissistic Parental Alienator (NPA) is a cruel act. It often has many players on different stages that corrode the soul. The NPA is one who systematically deceives and turns their own children into little abuser proxies. Narcissists lie, manipulate, and speak in mixed messages.
Twenty-five hundred years ago, Chinese military strategist Sun Tzu authored
Art of War—the oldest military “how to” treatise on deception. Tzu candidly
recommended:“In war, practice the art of deception and you will succeed,”
(Cantrell, 2003, p. 29). Such a tactic has become a norm in litigious divorce
and custody wars. A commonality between a narcissist and parental alienators
is that they both use a deceptive code of conduct.

The judge made the final decision; he wanted this case to go away because of the publicity. The original Rule 11 was an agreement stating that the child should go through reintroduction therapy with the mother for 6 months as needed, and after that time, if the child still did not want to see the mother, she would respect his wishes.(In the public records, Dr. Berry Norman stated that reintroduction would take 6 to 10 months.) That did not happen because Steve King,(Todd’s lawyer) filed to change the order after Todd
1. would not take the child to therapy,
2. declared bankruptcy, and
3. filed 8 grievances against Dr. Otero – the psychologist who noted PAS.
At this point the rule 11 was watered down by the judge. Now the child was not really going to do reintroduction with the fully educated PHD, because Todd ran her off. Ms. Yentis was then assigned, probable an ok gal, but not educated to the level that Otero was. Now the child is to attend 3 meetings and decided to see his mother, after 7 years of parental alienation. What a beautiful DREAM!
Mr. Kelley, the attorney ad litem, clearly knew/knows very little about parental alienation. He did not even check on the child’s process in the classroom. He had one short interview with the child after months of trying. Todd did not want the interview to happen.
Sure the mother regrets her decision about signing the Rule 11, because that decision was changed. She signed it after pressure from her lawyer, who didn’t know what else to do, the situation was almost hopeless. Todd was/is unreasonable because of his narcissistic personality disorder.
Judge Catterton, at all times, had the power to override any of this. Steve King is his friend, they don’t just fish together; they party. Steve King is the Associate Judge, in the 231st District Court, Lisa Beebe’s personal lawyer. That was a relationship established prior to the first time the couple went before her in the 231st Tarrant County Family Court. After 12 years, and now with the media attention, Catterton wanted it over.
Anna has admitted to her wrong doings. Anna did attend supervised visitation; it was hurtful to the child; unnatural and freighting. She thought that visitation would be rearranged; it was never rescheduled by her lawyer. She is still a member of a 12 step program. It is anonymous; therefore, the member’s names are not published. Anna produced documentation; the court just could not subpoena it; roll was not taken. Therefore it didn’t exist. She had drug tests done for four consecutive years, while on probation and after that the hair follicle tests were done, the last one a few months ago.(All while not being able to see the child.) Todd could have forgiven Anna and worked with the court on getting a relationship for their son with his mother, at any time. Instead, Todd did everything in his power to destroy the mother/child relationship. It really didn’t matter what Anna did. Absolutely no child should be told bad things about his or her parent. Parental Alienation is wrong, no matter what has happen in the past. This mother has been drug free for seven years. The child was never in danger by the mother. Here again, it is who has the money and who the person hires, that gets custody.

Todd Huff has practiced deceptive, cunning, ruthlessness, subordinating morals, and privilege for personal goals as his core theme in attacking his wife before the divorce and now his ex-wife after the divorce. Chinese military strategist Sun Tzu candidly recommended:“In war, practice the art of deception and you will succeed,”(Cantrell, 2003, p. 29). This approach has become a model in controversial divorce and custody wars. A narcissist and a parental alienator both use a deceiving code of conduct.
Huff’s fundamental principal links the characteristics of the narcissist and the parental alienator’s mantra “if the target parent does not have a problem, then create one for them or enhance a fallacy in his or her personality. In severe parental alienation cases, the Narcissistic Parental Alienator (who may be the custodial parent as Todd Huff is) frequently outright refuses the target parent any access to information or the child (ren). The purpose is twofold—obviously to sever the parent-child (ren) bond, while simultaneously stopping the target parent from gathering evidence of alienation and innocence of any false allegations. The child who is severely alienated can be prepped to sound very convincing to anyone who is not aware of the real evidence or what goes on behind the scenes.
Unfortunately, Judge Randy Catterton and associative Judge Beebe have absolutely no intellectual knowledge about parental alienation. Not only do they appear not to understand the Weber/Huff case; they do not want to educate themselves to help other families in the future. The courts are so over burdened by divorce and narcissistic personalities, that the fights are growing greater in number. Just as America and other countries have closed their minds to the possibility that rare metals may not be available for production of electronic devices, the courts are closing their minds to the disaster that will overtake the family courts.(China produces 97% of rare earth metals. But recent reports claim that shipments of the metallic elements to other countries have been halted or greatly reduced as of today, Oct. 21, 2010.
THIS FORM OF CHILD ABUSE HAS APPALLING SHORT AND LONG-TERM EFFECTS ON THE CHILD, THE TARGETED PARENT, AND EXTENDED FAMILY. WE ASK THAT THE JUDGES, ATTORNEYS, AND THERAPISTS WIDEN THEIR STRUCTURE OF UNDERSTANDING FOR THE VICTIMS, TO GET AWAY FROM A BLAME-BASED MINDSET, AND TO REALIZE THAT TREATMENT OF THE CHILD AND PARENTS REQUIRES COMMITMENT AND INTERVENTION OVER TIME FOR RESULTS. WITHOUT MANDATORY LONG-TERM TERAPEUTIC INTERVENTION, THESE FAMILIES, MOST LIKELY, WILL RETURN, REPEATEDLY, TO THE COURTROOMS.
We need your help to educate and make aware to the public the effects of Parental Alienation and Hostile Aggressive Parenting.

The Narcissistic Parent has come to the courtroom more and more in the last few years. These parents lack empathy and are exploitative in their behaviors. Their needs are unique and their grandiose state of mind causes the parent to bribe judges, exploit each other, the social case workers, and their very own lawyers. These same parents frequently alienate their children without understanding the long-term effects of their actions. Unfortunately, few judges, social workers, or lawyers have real intellectual knowledge about narcissism or the narcissistic parental alienation that is plaguing our courtrooms, now couple that with the criminal thinking of the judges and you will find a shocking problem growing in Texas and the world in general.

Todd Huff of Grapevine, Texas has outright refused his child access to his own mother and biological brother. Todd's purpose is twofold; obviously to sever the parent-child bond, while simultaneously stopping the target parent, Anna, from gathering evidence of alienation and innocence of any false allegations. The 13-year-old boy is severely alienated and has been prepped to sound very convincing to anyone who is not aware of the real evidence or what goes on behind the scenes. Anna never did anything to hurt this boy; he was never been in danger, except from the father’s alienation of his mother. What Huff has done is not a Christian act. Please pray that this man will find in his heart the Christian love his proclaims to all and that he will forgive as the Bible teaches. I too, have signed the petition at

Todd’s parents paid Steve King’s bills, until Todd barrowed from the bank, declared bankruptcy, never having to repay anything. Divorce is not new to the Huff family with Todd’s mother, Terresa S. Huff, also of Grapevine, Texas, orchestrating not only her sister’s divorce but both her son’s; the oldest son is on his third wife. Todd’s mother, Terresa, went to every court hearing. Todd’s father went to none of them. Anna’s parents funded her legal fight since she was a stay-at-home mother, Toby Goodman and Sam Boyd partially volunteered their time to help this young woman. Anna can’t ask any more of them. Todd and Anna both have to live with what has happened to their son, but so do Steve King, Randy Catterton, Lisa Beebe, and David Kelley, all of Ft. Worth, Texas.

Hitler, Khomeini, Stalin, and Mu'ammar al-Gaddafi are all examples of narcissistic humans. They exhibit not only narcissism but malignant narcissism.
New information on the Huff case is very interesting. Actually, there are two Huff cases, according to reports from other family members and friends who are outraged and concerned. Todd Huff and his brother, John Huff, both of Grapevine, Texas, were raised by a narcissistic mother who alienated both her sons from their father’s mother. Information has come to light that, the mother of the Huff brother’s, Teresa Huff financed her son’s divorces and brainwashed them against their children’s mothers. Mother Huff hired the same lawyer, Steve KingSteve King, to win both these high conflict cases.
According to the alienated boys, grandmother Huff tells each that if they want to keep the many things she pays for, there will be no contact with their mothers. She enlightens them with fabricated tales about their alienated mothers. She and her sons proclaim to the alienated children that their respective mothers are criminals, drug addicts, loose women and/or religiously bad humans. Grandmother Huff contributes most monies for her grandson’s activities and telephones, which she monitors for calls to their mothers. She promises cars and college tuition.

Judge Beebe abuses her authority to demean and humiliate parents to feed her ego. She has a sadistic streak in that she derives pleasure from others pain.

I just read about the 12 year old custody case that ended last year. I couldn't believe my eyes. The same exact verbage was used by the same exact people in the 231st courtroom, but that wasn't my case. Judge Beebe also ordered reintroduction therapy with Yentis for my child, after my ex forbid contact over a number of years. The end result was the same: after years of being told by my ex what a monster I am, Yentis reported to the court that our child wants nothing to do with me, but there may be hope in the future. At this point, I just have to turn the case over to God because no one in the 231 st Family court system believes in co-parenting. Apparently, if u hide out and forbid your ex from seeing your child, eventually u can completely get the other parent out of the picture for good. Then your new partner can play mommy or daddy. That is the message being sent out loud and clear from the 231st family courtroom where Judge Beebe rules and is backed 100% by Catterton.

Yes...!!.. I have experienced this courtroom... I was shocked and saddened to come to the realization that someone with "power" can make decisions that affect a child's life forever ... And do so without knowing all of the facts... This lady should be punished for what she has done to my family...
