“Ms. Valva, move along,” Lorintz says. “I can’t remember everything you’re saying because you’re saying so much.”

Why is this sort of willful ignorance allowed on the bench. Our taxes pay these people $189K a year as a starting salary For What to abuse people and neglect their duty to the point where a child dies. There really should be consequences for this type of person.

Judge Lorintz shoud be permanantly removed from the bench. He should bever be allowed to make another ruling, ever. His should be brought up on accessory to murder charges. His cases current and prior should be scrutinized and nullified if evidence shows bias or unfiarness. How does this person live with himself? A better question is how does his family live with him? A very poor excuse for a Judge.

Lorintz is not fit for the bench. Like many other Family Court judges who are not scrutinized or held accountable for anything, he deferred his judgment to the experts who are all making money off of parents trying to stay safe. He is as guilty of murder as the father and his finacee are in this case. How horrible these judges are allowed to destroy lives and walk away. Get him off the bench

Three young boys suffered horrendous abuse, one died of hypothermia after their abusive father forced him to sleep in the freezing garage. The little boy died half frozen in a nice home and community knowing no one was going to help him. This judge even punished his mother for trying to protect him by taking custody from her. Meanwhile, the father was sent the message that he could do anything to his children and get away with it. What did the judge think would happen? This case is not unique or rare. It’s happening all over the country. Judges like Lorintz are handing custody to domestic abusers, the children pay the price. If this little boy didn’t die, few people would know about the abuse he and his brothers endured in silence. Sadly, so many children are dealing with the same situation in silence. The judges, social workers, attorneys and “experts” involved are never held to account, but that needs to change. I hope reporters look into a powerful and little know family court organization called the Association of Family Concilliation and Courts (AFFC). In many jurisdictions, the AFCC provides the DV training and instead of educating courts to recognize abuse, they muddy the waters about DV, promote pseudoscience like parental alienation, and spread misogynistic fallacies that mothers and children lie about abuse. By siding with the abuser and withholding or twisting evidence of abuse, the conflict is prolonged for the financial benefit of all involved, at the expense of abused children. Well, you can only imagine what kind of depraved and sadistic professional are attracted to such a set up. The judge and everyone involved need to be held accountable. They are just as guilty for the boy’s horrific death as the father and his girlfriend.

This judge was the judge on the Tommy Valva case when he was murdered. He lost election multiple times and is only on the bench because of a political deal. He lied in my case and tried to bully me. As with Zimmerman, he caters to the connected lawyers and appoints “experts” who will agree with him in my opinion.
