Teaching the Courts Their Alphabet

Teaching the Courts Their Alphabet
By: Karen DeLuca.Alexandria, Virginia

Editor, Times-Dispatch:

While campaigning, Bob McDonnell's "one new idea" was divestiture of the state liquor stores. Now, schools, social services, public safety, and state employee pensions are on the commonwealth's GPS. Virginia is for S's. Why not shift gears? Backpedal closer to the top of the alphabet, rather than fuel taxes and gun sales, and privatize the courts. Portions of their functions already are privatized -- for example, through the increased use of mediation. In many instances, a judge's signature is just a rubber-stamp of an out-of-court compromise or one party's position. With more legal issues being resolved the DIY way, there is less need for the traditional role of the judiciary, or for the pricey courthouses that garage them.
Or they could become self-funded, or the "public option" in a hybrid system, forced to upgrade the quality of their product to maintain traffic on the theory no one will pay for a lousy, accelerated job. This would mean parking the best, most experienced personnel in the lower courts, where decision-making is typically determinative. If litigants are satisfied below, such positioning could eliminate the need for some of the vast appellate bureaucracy -- more potential budget savings. Because here's the clunker we have now: There's the "avoidance canon," where judges either don't decide or rule on a ground which really doesn't resolve anything, but disposes of a matter to get it off their desk. Expensive and inconclusive for litigants who expect and deserve more than a drive on the road to nowhere.
Another major problem, at all levels, is law-clerk justice. Just out of school, a bunch of mostly 25-year-olds in training, making impactful decisions that their bosses blindly sign off on. As these rulings travel up the system, they are routinely rubber-stamped by more apprentices, who cover their peers' tracks in this self-interest network where everyone's paving the way for their next career move. A stop sign should be put to this extra-constitutional exercise of judicial power and payment of redundant salaries.
In a Virginia running on fumes, officials need to look past their blind spots to non-retread solutions. That includes the commonwealth's side street and back alley courts. It's as easy as A, B, See . . .

My Judge was convicted of fraud and ....

"My Judge was convicted of fraud and still managed to ignore the law, deny me legal representation, and send my children to live with their abusive dad.

I had sole custody of the children (ages 13 & 16) since birth, they were both on honor roll and living well. The law was clearly ignored, despite the mountain of evidence presented at trial. I was given total decision making over education and therapeutic needs - basically, am required to babysit the dad and report back to court each time that he harasses the school -- so that I can be harassed again. Weekend visitation only. How do you start the process. So far my written complaints have been ignored. "

One corrupt evil judge down and 100's to go

"One corrupt evil judge down, & 100's to go...

The judge who gave my ex husband custody of my two kids was later found to be on heroine & other illegal drugs, & used it quite regularly while doing his job.

He slept through most of the trial the day I lost my kids in 1998. (signs of heroine use) I got a recording of this trial because I wanted to prove that he slept through it, unfortunately the courts conveniantly cut out the part of him snoozing in the court video. And I didn't get 5 & a half hours of trial recording either, I think I was lucky to get 1 hour of the recording after they were done editing it.

There were reports that Judge Ray Harding Jr. was very abusive to his wife & children. He was sent to prison, for idk how long. But I was never able to get a retrial, no attorney I hired, dared to do it. And to this day, the 4th district court in Provo, Utah has nothing bad to say about Judge Ray Harding Jr. The heroine addict....> > I feel these Judges NEED to be held accountable for the decisions they make that destroy ppl's lives... It makes me sick to see the consequences of the rulings they make, after blatently ignoring evidence of abuse or threats made. Their decisions have effected too many children to count. Makes me wonder how they would feel if they got letters from some of these poor kids after they age out of the system, telling them how they destroyed their lives?... Maybe a class action law suit should be filed against all of them!> > Thank God this judge lemkau, will no longer beable to hurt or effect another child with his biased decisions.... Too bad an innocent life had to be lost to have him removed though.... I saw the mother of this child on the Dr. Phil show, I just wept when I heard her story. This never should have happened...."

Children took hostage by Corrupted Virginia Judicial System

Children took hostage by Corrupted Virginia Judicial System.

Scott D. Landry Esq. was appointed Guardian ad Litem

Good Afternoon,

My name is Lisa Parenti and I live in Midlothian, VA. My daughters were taken away from me on July 23, 2009. at the time my oldest daughter just turned 5 and my youngest was 10 months old.

I started dating my husband in September of 2001. The relationship was very rocky, but in July 2003 I found out I was pregnant with my first child. After I told him I was pregnant he packed up and moved to West Virginia with his dad. In October 2003, he contacted me and stated that he wanted to work things out and he wanted me to move to West Virginia, so I did in hopes that we could work things out and my child wold have a family. In March 2004 my daughter was born, in August 2004 we moved back to Virginia. The very next day he left us. He did not pay child support nor did he return until she was 2 years old. At that time he once again wanted to work things out and I went back to him and a month later we got married. in May 2007 i noticed a change in his behavior, he became increasingly verbally abusive, threatning, volitile and distructive. Often trowing furniture at me, calling me a "worthless piece of shit", and telling me " Do you have any idea how much easier my life would be if you were dead" He also started drinking heavily. In April 2008, I discovered that he was having an affair with our daughter's friends mother. After I found out his drinking and his behavior became even worse. On June 1, 2008, 6 months pregnant with my second child (whom he openly denied was his until she was 3 months old), I took my daughter and left him and went back to live with my parents. In August 2008 I deneid him visitation due to him constantly threatning me over the phone that he was gonna kill me. In September 2008 shortly before the birth of my second child I filed divorce papers. Scott D. Landry Esq. was appointed Guardian ad Litem in my case and, after lengthy trials and litigation from September 2008 through July 2008 of he and his mother stating that I abuse and neglect my children, which couldn't be further from the truth, and making him out to be the victim. he was awarded full physical custody of my children.

I see my girls once a week on Wednsdays from 6pm until 9am and every other weekend from Friday at 6pm until Monday at 9am. I am not allowed to be apart of my oldests education, or do any extra activities with my children. And 95% of my monthly salary goes to him for child support. He doesnt work and has a full time nanny at the house to take care of the children.

I am completley heartbroken. I went from being their primary caregiver (he did absolutley nothing for them or with them) to only having a limited amout of time with them while a nanny raises them.

This is a very long story and there is alot more detail, please feel free to contact me by email, or phone ........ Any information I can receive to help get my girls home will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

Lisa Parenti
