Comment #: CA53438
Rating:Not Rated
We believe this judge murdered our son. The Daily Journal called her a Blessing in Disguise right after she quoted “A number of Latina and women of color were being sterilized and that was really a form of eugenics. People didn't tend to believe it but I documented it pretty well.” It goes on and says she discovered unknown skills after she got a dependency court assignment.

The Social worker never informed us or even try to obtain our parental consent to deliver medical and mental health services to our children. The judge approved this order in secret because this was not at all discussed in court.

Shortly after she ordered our son detained and placed him under the supervision of DCFS, he passed away in his sleep. A mental health provider was delivering services to him at his placement and at his school. When we made a request for his medical and mental health records (Health and Education Passport) the Judge said “The father got them already.” NO, the father didn't. He filed a fee waiver form to get a copy of the case file, which didn't contain our son's PHI.

Favors abusers in dependency court. Constantly rules against/ignores DCFS recommendations
