I think your decision on Mr. Kasam, could have been the wrong decision. I have two stepsons, drug addicts, alcoholics, users and abusers. They have taken their dad and I (step mom) for every penny they could get. Till a few months ago, when we cut the 26 year old off and then the same with the 33 year old. Both of these boys can present sober, pulled together and charismatic. But they have no concern for their father, none at all. They come back around because of I have let them know about a surgery or medical incident and then they are right back in the pocket book. My husband and I are moving in with my daughter "so that she will watch out for our best interests. Our concern is that these boys will group together, join forces and convince someone that they need to take control of their dad and me, this means about $9000 per month in financial income for our retirement. They could not care less about either of us, unless it involves what they can get. Right now, when this wife should be able to spend time with her husband, meeting his needs, she is being pulled to deal with court issues, because of the selfishness of kids. Seriously, she was with him since 1980, that should speak for itself. That is what my husband says, we have been together since 2000 a court should see that as a sign that I am wanting my life with you, the boys I love them, but they have not been around to help with either of us. My daughter, our daughter (as he says) will take care of us, the right way.

I think you messed up. Kids can make things look however they want and with the assistance of a good attorney, you know that too. Did the dad really want to see these kids, probably not, otherwise they would have been there before now. If he has a debilitating diseases then he won't be able to give them what they so desire now, love, reassurance etc. and they can't make up for what they have not done up till now.

He is the worst judge ever. He will stand before the Judge of the Universe and give an account as to why he allowed injustice in his kangaroo courtroom. He allowed the lawyers and court to rob at least a half million from our family estate, in a case all based on lies and false accusations, and would not allow us to present witnesses or evidence. He violated our constitutional rights, and I firmly believe that he was in bed with the opposition's lawyers -- and I wouldn't be surprised if he didn't get a piece of the pie, if you know what I mean.

He is horrible, unfair, doesn't follow the law, and is a lazy disgrace to the bench. Don't let him get ahold of your case. You will not get a fair decision. He will ruin your life. Run!

(How can we get him off the bench?)

A horrible judge! Totally disregards evidence and does whatever the guardian and her liar...oh I mean lawyer wants. We have been kicked out of our home that we resided in for over 10 years and are struggling to make it now becuase he rubber-stamped everything they wanted. They are selling the home and will pocket the money. His court is a kangaroo court for sure.

They will all one day stand before the highest Judge of the Universe and will give an account as to why they have stolen from a helpless widow and her fatherless sons.

My husband, myself and my daughter were denied reunification with my daughter. She is currently under guardianship and is with my mother in law who has an abusive history andI is a serious mental case. He told us we had to move to California from our life in Texas if we wanted her back. I have an 11 month old that has been raised here. We have friend's that are like family here I can't uproot our life like that. Its crazy to ask someone to do something like that! Let alone a family!He says my daughter is thriving at 2 years old where she is. OK? Well my son is thriving in a loving home too but has his parents raising him together.Texas would favor Lianna being home with us. This asshole doesn't know what its like for her or for us. My mother in law sent me a photo which the court investigator Pedro ramierez said could be faked and didn't send to Murphy, But its a pic of my daughter and step father in law with my daughters mouth on an opened beer bottle she was 5 months old! And it was beer! They drink everyday and she was denied an alcoholic free home? Why? Why my daughter? Why did he deny her us? She is our baby! Where do we go from here? I have never seen such and unfair judge if you can call him that.

A very unfair judge. It appears the lawyers and him are in bed together to rob our family estate. He disregards all of our evidence and this needs to be exposed to the public.

He makes major decisions that effect peoples lives, that can effect families forever without letting evidence of the innocence to be provided and explained. I believe the attornies and judge are preplanning the steeling of property of the innocent . He makes a major decision by what one lying attorney says without any proof of what he said was true or not. He appears to be nice and sweet but his agenda to steel peoples estates is quite evident as he disreguards proof and legal codes even presented in written form to the court. It's like he has never read what was presented.

Judge Murphy is not a fair judge. He doesn't look at all the evidence of truth. He is very discriminating towards his cases.
