I thought the exact same thing this morning when I heard this on the news. I am not at all racist, but I get tired of hearing about all of the groups and organizations that are specifically for black people. Can whites and blacks not be members of the same bar association??

I am well aware of the history books. However, they are just that..."history." If everyone wants to be on the same page nowadays, treated equally, and do away with racism, etc., then I do not understand why they have a Black Bar Association. Does the Tarrant County Bar Association exclude blacks? If so, by all means, have a BBA. I am betting, however, that the TCBA is open to all races.

They are separate because THEY want to be separate. Whe They decide they no longer want to be separate then we can, and will, be as one. It's okey to appreciate ones heritage, but it's another to constantly be using it as a force.

Why is this surprising, apparently it is permissable to commit perjury in Judge Lisa Beebe's court, so why isn't it permissable for a Judge to send racist emails. Anything goes in the Tarrant county court system......or rather should I say lack of a justice system.

It's also acceptable to commit perjury in Judge Debra Lerhmans court,and the associate Judges court. The tarrant county family court system is a front for the inherant corruption that Takes place every day. The Attorney's in the cases lie so do the parties just so they can get what they want. No matter what it may cost anyone....

I had the misfortune of being in Associate Judge Lisa Beebe's court on Thursday June 9, 2011 - I was shocked that such a legal hack can sit on the bench and govern the lives of others. This woman is a disgrace to the justice system. Lisa Beebe is a legend in her own mind and as she repeatedly stated, she is "transparent and consistent" and she's "been doing this job for 17 years", both facts are scary in that, it is apparent that Tarrant County must be hard up for judges if she keeps getting appointed to the bench. I watched this woman blatently disregard the conviction of a child pedifile father as well as his convictons on multiple drug charges and allowed him custody of his daughter who was the victim in the molestation case while browbeating the mother and forcing her to jump through hoops for visitation rights. This was apparently something set up between Judge Beebe and one of the attorneys in the case and it was apparent that their relationship went a lot deeper than was appropriate. Shame on you judge. Shame on Tarrant County.

Judge Bebee used Attorney Steve King as her personal lawyer in her own divorces and then heard/hears cases involving King’s clients. Bebee blatantly may have disregarded the conviction of a child pedophile father as well as his convictions on multiple drug charges and allowed him custody of his daughter…..but in the Huff vs. Huff case that went on for over 12 years, Bebee and Catterton let Todd Huff harass his estranged wife for years until the woman lost it….oh…yes…Beebe took a 17-month-old away from a mother with a degree in Elementary Education (ages 0-3) from Baylor University to give the child to his father who Steve King represented…the father got the boy every week-end and for 24 hours on Wednesdays, then Beebe and Catterton made the mom pay for a car went she had no income and the judges didn’t even give the mother enough child support to put the child in day-care so that she could get a job. Additionally, the father did not have to give the stay-at-home mother any funds to pay for her lawyer. After proving that the father was lying about his income and not following the return times, nothing was done…and you can imagine other horrors, but to mention a few…Huff had the mother followed by an agency as well as by family members….bore false witness…sued other member of her family, etc…...Then toward the end of the 12-year-case after being presented with clear evidence, by psychologist Dr. Marta Otera that the child was being alienated against the poor mother, Bebee and Catterton took the child completely away from his mother…even though the mother had done nothing wrong in last 6 years…( oh yes, she did use a few drugs after 4 years of the 12-year-case, and was not functioning because of the continued harassment and abuse by the husband and the courts for short a while, even broke the law)….….But, this mother, who was probably one of the best mothers by modern standards, was married with a three-year-old, who she stayed at home with, at the time they took her oldest son away….now focus on the fact that Steve King did the same thing to Debbie Huff in the John D. Huff vs. Debra Huff case….why not? has been working in the both of the Huff brothers have complete and isolated control of the three boys….can you buy this?….Debbie is an LVN…. one can’t be an LVN without satisfying state standards…bad people are not LVNs….Debbie’s boys adored her, too…until parental alienation was applied…..
What is wrong with this picture is …..the Judges don’t follow the family code….they many times don’t look at the evidence and most often rule in favor of their friend… the lawyer…..Wake up Tarrant County…..the law is not justice and not many officials care about the child/children….don’t even get me started on the attorney ad litem who did nothing to help the child in the Todd Huff case.

I guess the reason why I am writing is because I am emotionally and financially drained. I am fighting in the Tarrant County Courts to get my daughter back and my lawyer is expensive.

When I first left my husband I went to the Domestic Abuse Center for my own safety. He had threatened me on numerous occasions, and since we had only been with each other since the start of high school, I knew he would not let me go without a fight. Already, he and his buddies dismantled the car that had been given to me by my grandparents. Divorce followed my leaving.

For a couple years, the only assistance I received in raising our child was a payroll deduction check for child support. Still, I remained in contact with his family so that our child would know her cousins, grandparents, aunts and uncles on her dad's side of the family. Following my mother's model, after my own father's death, i was encouraged to spend time with my dad's side of the family, even after my mother remarried.

Shortly after my ex remarried, he hauled us to court again. Judge Beebe granted him custody, even though his job required international travel. My daughter would be cared for by his wife most of the time. My child was (and still is being) alienated from me completely. I present the case of alienation to Judge Lisa Beebe. She accuses me of not following the custody order in practicing my visitation. What!?! The judge says the other party, my ex and his wife, want my parental rights terminated so that the step mom can adopt.

To stall, my lawyer suggests having a therapist speak to our child to make sure that is what she wants. Obviously, after years of hearing only bad things about her mother, my daughter voiced her fear of having me re-enter her life. I never have quit trying to reach out to my baby girl. I've decided to hire a new lawyer, apparently the one Lisa Beebe uses herself. Rumor has it, she blindly rules in his favor without knowing anything about the case. Wish I knew this much sooner. Tarrant County good old' boy/gal system at its best.

As a father that has raised 4 children in tarrant county I am applaud at the way I was ridiculed by judge Beebe before the entire courtroom. As I watched case after case appear before her and on each case she ruled in favor of the father, there were cases where there was drugs, domestic violence and yet those fighting for the safety and security of the children are treated with comtempt. Perhaps it time for the district judge to find out what's going on with the associate judges.

Unfortunately I appeared before judge bebee, the case was set for 9:00 am and it was after 11:00 before she came into the court room. Never mind we are paying lawyers 200 -300 dollars an hour. My wife and I have been raising our granddaughter for 2 1/2 years while mom and dad were going about enjoying their youth, not excepting any responsibilities, the dad is an alcoholic, and mom has neglected the child. Judge bebee has interrupted my wife and I every time we tried to speak while allowing these neglecting parents to comit perjury while she being aware of the perjury, yet she allowed such behavior. My experience in the 231 court helps me understand why children grow up in abusive homes. My granddaughter received a life sentence today for a life of abuse and neglect. Leonard

I have a good friend that is going through this ladys court system right now. And, she is very unfair in the case! She asked my friend if she thought that she was going to give custody to this man. And her no visitation. This man cheated on my friend numerous times. And her oldest which is now 18, was caused by him forcing himself on her when they were dating. She got back with him when she was like 8. Now 10 years later they have 2 more girls. Which he will not let them see their mom. He lives with a woman that has 5 kids of her own. in a 2 bedroom house. Mixed genders by the way. And this lady does not work! She lives off the child support from the others. Which we think that her youngest belongs to the m an in question.And he does not work except under the table anyway! Tell me if you think that it is fair or legal!

Im not surprised; this is the same Judge that ordered me to abandon VA treatment for PTSD, after serving in Iraq, in favor of going back to work so I could afford to pay my ex-wife a rediculous $900 per month for my one and only son. My service to my country was called into question, and even mocked by her as well as opposing counsel, James V. Jay IV. Judge Beebe told me she knew what I was going through wasnt my fault but that it didnt matter and that I would follow her orders or be imprisoned. She then sentenced me to 30 days in jail. I was homeless at the time as well...
