Comments:
Colleen Sterne's court transcripts are not thorough nor accurate, sometimes there are none. She seems prejudiced and biased right away for the plaintiff whose petitions are totally fallacious with no basis. She doesn't even read the answers to the petitions or the MD reports assuring the healthy 90 yo defendant needs no medications. Didn't even let the defendant's lawyers speak or present MD witness. Judge's bailiff falsely charged me in the Superior Court with filing a false police report after I was physically attacked by the petitioner in the courtroom (who I had never seen before) as I was caregiving his 90 yo mom he was suing! The Judge lied saying she was sending the healthy 90 yo woman to visit her grandkids but actually let the petitioner institutionalize his mom against her will without any cause or fair hearing by forcing her to a doctor who drugged her! What a travesty of justice and the Judge was rude and totally disrespectful to the 90 yo.stripping her of all her rights even though the 90 yo told her she didn't need any medication and wanted to live in her home with her son and me the caregiver, which was not even in the transcripts!
