your comment is hard to make out. but i'm guessing you're claiming that this mother makes mean comments about her kids and they cry about it. and you think she shouldn't have custody?

Saratoga family court is a joke. I wish I could remember the name of the stupid law guardian assigned my granddaughter. Over a year ago her mother tried taking her concerns to family court about whom her daughter was being exposed to in her father's home. Now, well, lets just say that things are way out of control and involve criminal matters. Yep, let's just ask a 13 yr old where she wants to be, in a home with rules and responsibilities or live in a house where there are no rules! That's like asking a 3 yr old if they want ice cream or chicken for dinner!!!! All they are concerned about is making it to Happy Hour on time!

My sister is going through the court system right now regarding her daughter. She is dealing with a judge that is totally biased. Her ex has arrived late to court and had the law guardian lie for him, saying he had car trouble and then walked in saying he overslept right in front of my mother like it was a big joke...he missed his psych eval cause he was drunk and then lied stating her never recieved the paperwork (when my sister recieved the same paperwork that he recieved) and they gave him a court extension!! He is always bragging how he has judge hall wrapped around his finger and he thinks the law guardian has a thing for him because they text back and forth. Its ridiculous. Her public defender basically told her that whatever her ex wants she has to give him because the judge "likes" it when she "cooperates". When that little girl is totally screwed up years from now I hope the Judge, the law guardian and her public defender can be held accountable. Has anyone else had some unfair dealings with judge Hall???? Is there a way she can switch judges??

To Hon Courtenay Hall.....READ THIS: http://investigations.nbcnews.com/_news/2013/...

A 9 year old lied in court because her mother was abusive. Are you oblivious to these things?

Not only did the mother of my granddaughter twist the truth, lie, BRIBE and brain-wash my granddaughter but you, Hon Courtenay Hall, made decisions based on allegations about me in two different court hearings in which I was not given the right to defend myself. In one of those court hearings, I WAS THERE.
Are you kidding me, do you really think I would tell my granddaughter I will drag her to the police station if she doesn't quit crying when it's time to visit us here in West Virginia?
You are about to see a lot more of the vindictive bi-otche's face. ROFLMAO because(get this) SHE IS NOW SEPERATED FROM THE ONE SHE WAS WITH IN THE COURTROOM. Yes Courtenay she has a kid by THAT man and is about to put THAT family through the same HELL.
Now I could write a book here, but ya'll can just go to my website and read all about it. No don't even advise me to go back to court. I'm DONE! As long as that witch is alive and walking free...I don't want any more to do with my granddaughter. She is still my flesh and blood so her picture is on my living room wall, but that's it. "NO MORE HALFWAY ha ha" She said to me in a message on FB. She knows it would be impossible to make the 12 hour trips....Like I said...I could write a book..So just go here and read it.

Seems that Judge Courtenay Hall is for whichever is the most evil of the two parents. He is creaing a monster out of the children involved. No wonder crime is so high in upstate NY. Glad I don'tlive there. Nice job judge Hall.

IT'S ME AGAIN.....PLEASE SEND A HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY GRANDDAUGHTER PAIGE IF YOU KNOW HER.
Today is my first born granddaughter's birthday. Paige Hall is 10 years old today!! Happy birthday wherever you are. Hope your life is better without me in it. Hope your mother treats you better since I no longer have anything to do with you. Hope you have peace now. I quit calling you and sending stuff because I was afraid your mother (Jessica Mason) would continue to tourcher you like she always did because of me.......... The wonderful judge of Saratoga Springs NY Hon Courtenay Hall made the decision that it was ALL up to Jessica Mason if Paige comes to West Virginia to visit us or not. So we knew that meant NOT. What a great judge NOT. This is the same girl that lost Paige to foster care because she stabbed my son, the same girl who when Paige talked good about her people here in WV she told her not to call her "Mommy" the same girl that hated us so much that it was impossible to have a calm conversation with her on the phone, she would scream and carry on like a loonatic. I still have the recordings of that....Well Judge Hall, right after your thoughtful decision, Jessica Mason broke up with her man, Josh Lamarche, who helped her with her lies. She took off with my granddaughter out of New York and went to Missouri to live. Missouri is where she started doing drugs when married to my son, Anthony Hall, because she knew those type of people there and she almost lost her daughter because of it. I sit here and think back of all the trouble it was to try and be a grandmother to Paige. WOW what a lot of heart ache and what destruction that has caused. Sorry.......... BUT STILL HAPPY BIRTHDAY PAIGE. We love you and miss you. Happy birthday where ever you are.
