 Keith Eisenhut is a divorce and family court lawyer in Utica, New York. He lives somewhere around a small town called Waterville and makes a living orchestrating needless conflict between moms and dads. If you’ve got lots of money to burn, don’t do it, just throw it in a wheel barrel and deliver it to “Keith’s” sole practice, wherever it is these days, after he was tossed from his last partnership with Mike Kalil.

You see, Keith Eisen-slut has sleezed so much money out of unsuspecting parents that Bernie Madoff would have loved to become his new partner. It’s important, therefore, that we put our local followers on notice about this character so that you won’t get “burned” as well. “Keith” as he is called among these courts has exhibited all sorts of incompetency, but managed to dodge accountability by joining bar associations and even the local ethics committee, if you can believe that.

You might compare Eisen-slut to the chief attorney and deputy lawyers on the ethics committee which did the witch hunt against me years ago when I began exposing such incompetency on this website, local public forums, and both mainstream and social media. I called this New York ethics committee an “unethical ethics committee” during my judicial whistleblowing activity and, of course, they went ballistic on me.

How dare I say such terrible things? Their reputation, like my (eventually admitted) pedophile custody judge, Bryan Hedges, was “beyond reproach.” Not long afterward, however, I was vindicated when these same lawyers, Peter Torncello, Steven Zayas and Elizabeth Devane, were exposed by a state inspector general and allowed to resign by their Albany Appeals Court employers for falsifying their time sheets. These are the standard-bearers of attorney ethics charged with the duty of correcting overbilling practices of characters like Keith Eisen-slut.

Well here at Leon Koziol.com, we don’t let such characters get away with their sleeze tactics. You see “Keith” was my ex-spouse’s first divorce lawyer. I warned her about him but, hey, she knew better as a Frankfort-Schuyler school teacher who once lectured her students that the Nile River flows south (because that’s the way it looked on her geography map). Nevermind all the error-prone resumes I had to correct for her when we were married. She’s still in Frankfort (which she despises) and will probably be there to retirement given her tenured status.

Anyway Kelly Hawse-Koziol found out the hard way before finally firing Eisen-slut. She re-hired him for one more try in 2012 after her replacement lawyer moved to New York City. Again he lost as did his client when the judge denied her request to have me pay for Keith Eisenhut’s lawyer fee. Here are some other features of his incompetent representation after sleezing many more thousands out of this high school teacher (itemized in my recently filed state Supreme Court lawsuit):

(a)   outside disclosures of the father’s private matters resulting in protection orders against Eisenhut, his client and law office on January 11, 2007;

 (b)   filing of papers concededly in “the wrong court” in December, 2006 resulting in dismissal of his client’s case and costly renewal a year later;

(c)   drafting of a divorce decree, corrected by the father, which had his own client guilty of cruel and inhumane treatment contrary to agreement;

 (d)   recklessly delayed and contrived support bills which collapse his client’s 2006 settlement with its voluntary 50% support increase;

 (e)   costly proceedings in 2012 adverse to his client which could have been avoided altogether with a competent review of the case record.

These are only some of Eisenhut’s gross incompetence. All of it is verified by the record for anyone to review. And yet the “bar” is still allowing him to “practice” law. Kelly Hawse-Koziol is now on her sixth or seventh lawyer, and our once uncontested divorce (before Eisen-whore made it contested) is now on its 40th trial level jurist.

After dragging his client through years of needless proceedings for increased “child support,” New York Supreme Court Judge John Grow ruled in his decision of October 8, 2008 that the parents’ private support agreements of 2004 and 2005 were just and proper under the federal and state “Child Support Standards Act.”

So next time someone refers you to Keith Eisennut, bring along your wheel barrel of cash and strap yourself in for the ride of any carnival. Just don’t’ expect any refunds if you fall off the ride. This carnival court clown, Eisen-slut, is easy to recognize. He’ll be the dwarf or troll literally talking through his nose with that nasal thing he’s got going. You might even need to take a course in nasal dialect to understand how he’s going to screw up your life.

If you have any complaint regarding Keith Eisenhut, submit your grievance to:

Attorney Grievance Committee

Fifth Judicial District

224 Harrison Street; Suite 408

Syracuse, New York 13202-3066

You can also call directly at (315) 401-3355

Or better yet, file your grievance and sue Eisenhut for malpractice. I’ve won a number of such cases including one against a lawyer who later became a family court judge. If Kelly Hawse-Koziol had done so (as I once recommended), she would have recovered a lot more than the so-called “child support” she is still seeking today.     

 

 

 

    

Catch me if you can: A Shocking Story of Court Corruption for the Ages!

place-your-corrupt-judge-or-lawyer-photo-along

By Dr. Leon Koziol

Parenting Rights Institute

Now this is a story of for the ages, court corruption on steroids. For those of you who have followed my ordeal as a judicial whistleblower, you know how my daughters, livelihood and law licenses were taken from me due to my conscientious stand against my profession after 23 years of unblemished practice of law. I have never even been charged with a crime or unfit behavior as a parent.  

You also know how the ethics lawyers in the witch hunt against me were allowed to resign quietly by their appeals court employers for falsifying time sheets without any criminal or ethics charges. And you know about the unprecedented 30 plus trial level judges assigned to my originally uncontested divorce of 2006 who were disqualified for various reasons.

They included my custody judge, Bryan Hedges, removed from my case just prior to his admission of sexual abuse on his handicapped, five year old niece. And just when you thought it was safe to come out, along comes today’s feature on Leon Koziol. com, a parental blog site dedicated to exposing corruption in America’s divorce industry.

My recently released book, Satan’s Docket, continues to entertain readers while educating them to the realities of divorce and family courts from a model father and highly successful civil rights attorney. What a great Christmas present as so many have discovered through recent orders at www.parentingrightsinstitute.com.

Today’s shocking story could never have occurred unless I so angered certain judges with my public disclosures that they went ballistic with their retributions and abuses of judicial office. You need to share this with media, organizations and fellow victims not so much for my sake, no one is seriously supporting me anyway, that’s why the corruption continues to your own detriment  as parents and taxpayers. Do it for the sake of innocent children and future generations of Americans.

As yesterday’s post reported, I filed a parental equality case in New York Supreme Court. One day after its filing, on December 15, 2017, I was summoned to appear before the 40th trial level jurist assigned to my originally uncontested divorce.

That’s right, forty (40). I’m not making this up any more than my pedophile custody judge who was sued along with administrative judge, James Tormey, for directing “political espionage” of his family court clerk (Morin v Tormey).

I’m also not making this up any more than Judge Hedges’ replacement, Daniel “Kangaroo” King, who allowed a fabricated PhD and Master degree into the record for purposes of imputing false income. He did so for retaliatory support incarceration in 2013 after I reported his misconduct at public hearings before the Moreland Commission on Public Corruption.

Now the name of our latest villain is Natalie Carraway, and I have no idea where this support magistrate came from any more than the security deputy did who said she had come to our local family court just for me. How truly “honored” was I.

Anyway, four days earlier on December 11th, I had appeared before Kangaroo King’s replacement judge, James “dweeby” Eby of Oswego, New York Family Court. It was a first appearance on my show cause petition for holiday parenting time filed at least one week before Thanksgiving.

Of course, the dweeb had no intention of “granting” me father access to my daughters after nearly 1,500 days removed from their lives. He was likely assigned by Syracuse Judge James “Bond” Tormey to harass me with every possible abuse of judicial office. The Jimbo twins may have become determined to discredit my professional reputation and public message of reform at any cost.

After telling me to pound salt, the dweeb was interrupted during proceedings by that security deputy. He came in uninvited and asked this Oswego judge if he could serve me with a support violation petition then set for a first appearance four days later before Natalie “clueless” Carraway. The dweeb replied that it was not Oswego “policy” to allow service of papers in a case not assigned to the presiding judge, but because it “may be” policy in Oneida County, he ruled that I was “served.”

We were then excused from his deliberations, but I refused to accept service on grounds that I was intending to challenge “service by mail” in the separate support case, a mode of service requested by the “custodial sociopath” Kelly Hawse-Koziol on the face of her sworn petition. Because such petitions feature warnings of arrest and incarceration of up to seven years, that’s right seven years, on their face, I was not expecting “corrective” service by a court deputy assigned to security.

More importantly, I wanted to obtain a ruling to invalidate this unchecked practice of mail service given its clear violation of due process and devastation to victims such as Walter Scott. You might recall him as the unarmed dad in South Carolina shot dead in the back five times while fleeing a child support warrant. His family recovered $6 million for civil rights violations (the latest form of “child support”).

But how could Judge “dweeby” Eby know any of this? He was not assigned to the support case. And now he unwittingly became a witness to the service issue and therefore subject to (yet another) disqualification (always blamed on me, the innocent victim). Of course my adversaries, known and unknown, will endeavor to “sweep this all under the carpet” using every lame excuse possible.

But they would have to get around the fact that I was successful in a “Traverse” hearing as it is called one year ago where a support case by the same custodial parent was dismissed for improper service. I actually got the city marshal process server hired by her to admit on cross examination that he lied under oath before the last support magistrate. Or maybe they just don’t care about “law and order” anymore. We got to get this guy, Leon Koziol, out of the way at all costs, legal or illegal.

To my surprise, the security deputy was still pursuing me outside the courthouse to serve me again with the same papers even after Eby’s ruling that I had already been served. Now how close did this pursuit come to the one which resulted in the murder of Walter Scott? The only thing which separated our fates was the mood and mentality of this sheriff deputy who managed to barge into an unrelated (custody) proceeding and take control of it. Stay tuned! It gets better!

Between the dweeby proceeding and clueless one of December 15, 2017, I had the parties named in my state Supreme Court case served properly with my complaint. I did this with a privately retained process server. We had to travel hundreds of miles over a two day period to serve New York’s top judge in Albany, and judges Eby and Tormey in Oswego (Lake Ontario) and Syracuse. It cost me hundreds of dollars to comply with “the law.”

All that was left to serve in my newly filed lawsuit at our December 15th support hearing was the “custodial sociopath” and Clueless Carraway. We got the sociopath, Kelly Hawse-Koziol, in the court lobby and then my server joined me in the back of the courtroom  before Magistrate Natalie Carraway. She progressed through the usual formalities.

That’s when I learned that my custodial adversary was now represented by her sixth attorney employed by Social Services (while she was earning nearly $100,000 annually as a tenured Frankfort-Schuyler school teacher receiving $45,500 in tax free child support only two years earlier, again under threat of incarceration to a debtor prison).

When the subject of our next appearance came up, I logically raised the mail service challenge and in-court service by a sheriff deputy assigned to court security. But my ordeal never ends when it comes to shocking events. Clueless Carraway informed me from the bench that she had taken it upon herself to investigate the service issue already (before I even raised it at our first appearance now underway).

Magistrate Carraway had secured the transcript of Judge Eby’s custody proceedings at public expense when it was my adversary’s legal obligation to do that at her expense for purposes of proving proper service. More bizarre, Judge Eby would eventually become the appeals judge in her support case and therefore tainted as a biased witness to proper service.

Hey this is New York, don’t try to figure it out. In my lawsuit, I explained why judges and experts could not understand my ten year ordeal, but stick with me anyway. It’s for your own good. You’ll just have to trust me on that. Judge Clueless announced that she was accepting her colleague Eby’s ruling on service while selectively excluding the county policy question which preceded it.

That’s when I responded with the chaos that would follow from her precedent which I was certain that no judge in my (Oneida) county would adopt. I asked Clueless to imagine what our system of justice would be like if any court security deputy could simply interrupt any court proceeding to serve papers for a private party in a separate case. An angry Carraway was unmoved as presiding judge here. And that’s when her world was rocked.

If that was her firm precedent, I asked her to accept service of my state Supreme Court summons and complaint which named her as a defending party by my process server seated in the back of her courtroom. She made me repeat that question as it was evidently beyond her comprehension that a judge could be served by a litigant while deliberating on his case.

But come on man! This is exactly what had occurred to me in Judge Eby’s courtroom four days earlier and she had just ruled that this was an acceptable mode of service. Utterly discombobulated, Clueless Carraway finally replied that she was going to conclude this first appearance and attend to matters in chambers (this was her only case and she was probably intending to consult her assigning judge, James “Bond” Tormey about it all).

But our needless wait in the court lobby for Carraway’s exit had its fateful benefits because the deputy was enticed in the meantime to respond to our casual inquiries about what had just happened. He gradually disclosed that he had been contacted by an Oneida County family court clerk (only minutes after my arrival for Eby’s hearing and Hawse-Koziol’s observed entry into that clerk’s office) to serve papers for someone. Deputy Dummy replied, “sure, why not” while abandoning his security post for this purpose.

Deputy Dummy then confirmed that he had no idea who this service was for and that he was not being paid for it. After all, that would be double dipping and likely the crime of official misconduct inasmuch as he was already being paid a wage for public safety purposes. Making matters worse for him, he also conceded that he was not a part of the Sheriff Department civil division which by law must charge a fee for such private purposes.

I could go on and on, but you probably know where I’m going with all this now. That’s right, the same state Inspector General who caught my ethics lawyers falsifying time sheets. After all, imagine the liability consequences if a violent event erupted in the court lobby while Deputy Dummy was preoccupied, uninvited, in closed proceedings where no one was in danger. Judge Tormey’s chief family court clerk recovered $600,000 just for being directed improperly to conduct “political espionage.”

This was also a nail in the coffin for my state Supreme Court case against Dweeby Eby, Clueless Carraway and James Bond Tormey. Can a better case be made for gender discrimination practiced by those who apply public dollars and special court privileges to give free process serving to a custodial mother while dad is required to pay for his? Shouldn’t we “lock her up” along with all the others who do this?”

There’s much more to come. Stay tuned!  

   

 

        

Madonna’s Mobster Moms (MMM) Declare War on Family, Morality and America

Does this deranged mom even know what fascism is? Hitler and Mussolini practiced it by controlling the minds of vulnerable children. This mom is doing exactly that here in our nation’s capital.

Dr. Leon R. Koziol

Parenting Rights Institute

Who but a terrorist declares before an angry  mob that she is plotting to “blow up the White House.” That’s not just any White House, Madonna, it’s not even Trump’s house, it’s our house. Great American presidents like John F. Kennedy and Abraham Lincoln have lived there if you bothered to study your basic history. Terrorists tried to fly a plane into our house on 9-11, and here you are inciting them to try it again?

Madonna and her mobster moms torched whatever message these protesters were trying to convey in Washington on January 21, 2017. Vulgar signs, public child abuse and graphic depictions of female body parts were nauseating enough to open the ground beneath them to the fires of hell. Time and again I have been vindicated with my professionally delivered messages on this blog site. Only days prior to election day, I compared Hillary to the anti-Christ. And wow!  I was proven correct beyond my worst horrors.

This is Babylon revisited, Sodom and Gomorrah on steroids, shocking open proof of the evil which has festered in American society for too long. The Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King would have condemned this freak show in an instant. The women who exposed themselves most were the ones who should have covered themselves in canvass. At least the Russians, French and other healthy peoples of the world would not be validated in their criticisms of a decadent society here. Rampant obesity has become a costly epidemic which our working parents are paying for.

As a civil rights lawyer for 23 years, I saved many women careers and represented a former president of the National Organization for Women. So please, spare me the excuses and propaganda about what this was really about. It was an attack on democracy, our electoral process, religion and America itself. We now need a pro-America rally with millions acting responsibly and not sexually in public. There were too many graphic images spreading across the internet to prove our point. But the cute, innocent, little girls with the vulgar signs? It’s not our practice but we had to display two of them here.Those are the ones that sickened me the most. Where was Child Protective Services on all the child abuse?

What a disgrace to our nation’s capital and our moral fiber as a civilized society.

God save America !

Here we have public proof of parental alienation against fathers with child abuse simultaneously displayed on a little girl. Violence and lawlessness are sure to emerge from this disgusting form of “childrearing? Are there any moral standards left?

PRI Report: Public Safety, Military Most Harmed in Family Court

honoring-soldiers-veterans-day-2-20110615

The Parenting Rights Institute (PRI) has released a cutting edge report which identifies a condition known as Custody Court Dysfunction. Based on years of legal research, more than two decades as a practicing attorney and interviews with family litigants, it was authored by Dr. Leon R. Koziol, founder and director of PRI. Among its alarming conclusions, military parents and public safety officers remain primary victims of this condition:

And so, while our federal government escalates its military involvement around the globe, soldiers are returning to empty homes, child alienation and felony support warrants. I was able to save the life of one such victim from attempted suicide at a parenting convention we sponsored in 2011, but the unsuccessful instances are more telling, see i.e. Purple Heart’s Final Beat, Second Class Citizen.Org (2009).

Father discrimination may be the convenient scapegoat for politicians seeking to advance themselves, but as President Calvin Coolidge is quoted: “A country which forgets its defenders will itself be forgotten.” This message resonates as well with our domestic defenders. Virtually all responders on 9-11 were men entitled to equal treatment under the law. Yet an unpublicized number of fathers became eternally separated from their children and families without any changes to these laws as construed and enforced by our courts.

In another excerpt, the report describes not only how public safety officers are victimized in custody determinations based on their line of duty but how those duties are compromised and subjected to increased risks:

A natural outcome of this history is lawlessness. Although examples abound throughout the country, their causes are highly suppressed in police and media reports. In my own small home town, a police investigator committed a murder-suicide upon his ex-spouse after leaving support court which had him reportedly living on $28 per week after all the deductions and asset executions.

Draconian enforcement practices lead to seizures of various licenses ultimately producing homeless victims. Facing such prospects, this law man used a common kitchen knife to complete his crime, voiding any deterrent effect of the inflammatory protection orders issued. It left three children with no parents and city taxpayers responsible for a $2 million wrongful death pay-out, see Pearce v Longo, 766 F. Supp.2d 367 (NDNY 2011).

Stay healthy, happy and out of custody court so your hard earnings can be spent on better things than lawyers, court induced addictions and lucrative evaluations

By Dr. Leon R. Koziol

Is anything worth your health? Do you enjoy fighting over your children while lawyers and court operatives disgorge you of your earnings and assets. If you have an income, children or assets of any kind, the sky’s the limit for conflict orchestrated by profiteers in custody court.

They’ll tell you it’s all in your children’s best interests when advised to file a contested divorce or family court petition for custody or support. But they’re really talking about their own children, if they even have them, where the fees you pay are ultimately spent.

Get the vital details in a new report released this past week by our public interest group, Parenting Rights Institute. Share it with your lawyer, obtain expert assistance, but most of all, get a real world perspective on how these courts truly operate.

It was authored by a parental advocate who spent more than two decades litigating in these courts. The alarming content is based on many months of research and interviews with divorce and family court victims from around the country.

Needless divorce and family conflict are ruining America. Self-representation, education and mediation are vital options.

By Dr. Leon R. Koziol

Most people view judges as honorable office holders committed to justice, equality and all that other good stuff we read about in civics class, as it should be. But behind the robes, in the recesses of chambers and among discreet exchanges in restaurants, bars and golf courses across America, there is often quite another set of characteristics at play.

Bias, coercion, deal-making and outright crimes are taking place which violate all manner of ethics. And in our nation’s domestic relations courts, such corruption is taken to the next level under a pretext of family confidentiality, thereby concealing the misconduct and protecting a trillion dollar industry built on needless conflict.

A chaotic process has resulted, one that a Supreme Court Justice once described as a “Kangaroo” operation, In re Gault, 387 US 1, 28. The victims are left with no real remedy because judges have legislated for themselves a rule of absolute immunity unlike the rest of us when we violate the law or public trust. The people have never consented to this rule.

Accountability is thereby undermined. Judicial commissions remain political or overwhelmed so that vast numbers of legitimate complaints are simply tossed to the curb. This is the way a self-regulated branch of government retains false esteem. If a judge renders an edict, it is considered sacrosanct. The loser must have done something wrong.

But think again. New York’s ex-Chief Justice Sol Wachtler was imprisoned for federal crimes during the nineties. He was charged with stalking, extortion and other sick conduct involving the child of his mistress. He even directed court staff to harm the license of the lawyer assisting her in tracking down the perpetrator, Wachtler himself.

In his book, After the Madness, Sol Wachtler explains that judges are made to believe that they are gods. Such deep rooted convictions do not disappear. Judges have been impeached by Congress for lesser things such as an abuse of contempt powers and non-criminal behavior. But that is a rare and sometimes politically motivated event. (See Video – New York Honors High Court Criminal)

The problem becomes epidemic when such corruption finds its way into divorce and family courts. In the infamous “kids for cash” scandal, two Pennsylvania judges were convicted of bribery charges after committing minors to detention centers built by contractors for kickbacks. It resulted in 4,000 reversed convictions and wrongful incarceration of American youth.

Other examples include New York Supreme Court Judge Gerald Garson, convicted of bribery and corruption of judicial office. He was caught on camera accepting a $9,000 bribe from a divorce lawyer in chambers to fix a custody case. Had the mother not sought out the FBI, she would have lost her children for something less than most contested divorce retainers.

A concerned parent must now wonder how many such bribes are never discovered across the states. You would think a criminal conviction would lead to corrective behavior. But in shameless fashion, Judge Garson served less than minimum time due, in part, to the many references from his colleagues.How was any precedent or example made? Here’s what the New York Times had to say about it:

“It was news that confirmed every sneaking suspicion, every paranoid fantasy of anyone who had ever felt wronged in a divorce court.”

One colleague, Thomas Spargo, was convicted for soliciting a $10,000 bribe from a lawyer facing a personal divorce. The money was needed for legal fees to defend ethics charges. Does it get any sicker, bribing money from lawyers and litigants to get a judge out of an ethics prosecution?

Kathleen Kane, Pennsylvania’s Attorney General, was prosecuted for a grand jury leak and suspended from practice prior to her trial by the state’s Supreme Court. Two of its members have resigned due to a selacious scandal in the highest chambers of a state court (exposed by Ms. Kane). 

Then there’s the Michigan Judge Wade McCree whose case defied all manner of ethics. He admitted to adulterous sex in chambers with a litigant mother while presiding over her case. He was removed from the bench for all sorts of misconduct only after the affair (with pregnancy) was confirmed. The father, placed on a tether for support arrears during this affair was denied recovery by a federal appeals court in 2014 on grounds of judge immunity.

While the list goes on, it begs the question: how can you trust our current system? How can you not be concerned when another custody judge was removed from the bench for admitting to sexual misconduct on his five year old handicapped niece (my own custody judge), see In re Bryan Hedges, 2013 NY Slip Op 02773. This judge held numerous child sessions in chambers without the parents allowed in.

In Morin v Tormey, 620 F. Supp.2d 353 (NDNY, 2009), the same judge and his chief judge were made liable for “political espionage” against a handicapped judge. Because the victim was a court clerk, judge immunity did not apply. Is it such a reach to conclude that the same administrative judge is conducting “political espionage” on litigants he favors or dislikes?

So why are we excluded from such a lawsuit? Ominously the incidents are growing. At its core, the public has been fed an overdose of propaganda behind a custody award for countless disputes involving children. Shared parenting is being crushed in nearly every state by bar associations which have cultivated this gold mine.

The establishment’s preferred framework is not so complicated despite chapter and verse. Custody is awarded to the parent who can best destroy the other in a barbaric contest reminiscent of the Roman Coliseum. Aligned family spectators cheer or cry, and the government band plays on while suicides become commonplace.

When you stop to think, it really is a barbaric process for a nation which styles itself as a civilized one. The collective challenges to our schools, communities and law enforcement are mind-boggling. The public has been duped into believing that custody wars are normal. And judges blame the parents in the end after all the lawyers are paid.

Politicians will condemn needless medical procedures that tax our health care systems. They attack an over-medicated population with costly programs even though government is its biggest drug supplier. Yet they turn a blind eye to these barbaric courts. Why are they being so protected despite overwhelming evidence of their devastation to the people served?

So do yourself a favor. Invest $300 in an education program offered by the Parenting Rights Institute. Comprised of a lecture by a family law expert and a six part reading program, it provides standard court forms and sample material for self representation and controlling lawyer fees. Referrals can also be obtained along with vital information with this program.

Stay out of divorce and family court whenever possible. Explore options such as mediation and cooperation. You never know if a Gerald Garson might be assigned to your divorce case or a Bryan Hedges to interview your children in family court chambers.

Supreme Court Wife: A Wedding to Die For!

arts-dining
Hall of Springs at Saratoga Performing Arts Center, Saratoga Springs, NY

Administrator’s Note:

If you are a follower of Leon Koziol.com, you know that a book is being authored in connection with  Leon’s ordeal in family court. Set to be published this year, it will include retributions for his reform efforts and reports of judicial misconduct now headed for the Justice Department. Today we take you back to where this all got started. It is a book excerpt that should captivate you.

A Wedding To Die For

By Dr. Leon R. Koziol

It was only days after my return from our honeymoon when the wife of a state Supreme Court Justice approached me at a local restaurant to render a ruling of sorts.

“Now that was a wedding to die for!”

She was referring to an all day affair culminating at the Saratoga Hall of Springs in upstate New York. A cathedral style ceremony, outdoor brunch, stretch limos, horse drawn carriage, elegant reception, and two weeks in Europe, I planned it for my children to cherish one day. And so it happened. Two precious girls came of this wedding, enough to justify every expense. None was spared.

You see, I was locked on tradition at the time, detesting the sort of “anything goes” culture we live in today. A woman is still a lady, one to be romanced over a lifetime, and although our marriage lasted only a few years, there was no reason we could not have kept our mutual admiration intact, for the sake of our daughters if nothing else.

But for that to occur, shared parenting was a must, something that could not be negotiated, coerced away or sold to a childless substitute. Unfortunately this was New York where the laws are still geared to lucrative custody contests. With ignorance and lack of conscience, the woman I married fell for everything when court corruption, gutter politics, and self serving lawyers got hold of her.

We separated amicably, getting along much better during that period than we did before and afterward. But an uncontested divorce turned into chaos the day I announced a run for Congress. The judge’s wife could not have imagined what would follow this wedding. Five years later, her husband would recommend me for a judgeship, and one year after that, he would organize my campaign committee in retirement for another public office.

Unfortunately as a candidate in the judicial district where my family issues were being litigated, and as a growing critic of the abuses which were occurring, I became a target of retribution. The goal was to discredit my complaints and reform efforts even if it meant using my own children in the process. My ordeal came to read like a John Grisham novel, and it bore striking resemblances to the abuses once faced by Dr. Martin Luther King.

It started when my application to move my case to another district was denied by a judge from my opponent’s political party. This egregious error was proven by more than 30 trial judges assigned to my family court deliberations over the next eight years with half of them  stepping down of their own accord including the retired judge’s own son.

That something like this could even occur in a civilized court system is beyond comprehension but the damage to my children, career and support capabilities was irrevocable. Even worse, the mother was exploited to entice all sorts of false petitions to kill the messenger of reform notwithstanding my 23 unblemished years as a civil rights attorney.

A tremendous scorn on her part aggravated this harm particularly when a second marriage was being planned. If she could not have me, no one else would, not even our children. She easily spent tens of thousands of dollars in her spiteful quest and gained nothing near what she could have for our children had she simply agreed to shared parenting. I live a solitary life now helping others avoid the pitfalls of divorce and family court.

We expect qualified judges to pick up on scorn and court abuses when they rear their heads as brazenly as they did here. It left me with no choice but to defend myself from any order which comes from a corrupted family judge in Lowville, New York named Dan King. These book excerpts help establish a public record to avert tragedies such as the Walter Scott murder while promoting long overdue reform.

This wedding was in its earliest stages when I was just a boy watching Walt Disney do his magic. It really paid off as you may verify yourself by viewing the videos which follow. Everything from the weather to our dessert table fireworks was about as perfect as one could expect. The feature dance had a surprise ending, and after all the lessons we took, it’s the only time we got it right. They say a picture tells a thousand words. This one tells a whole lot more.
