He knowingly harms children with the custody decisions that he makes.

Comments:
Everything I have read and heard of this man shows his lack of concern for the children who come before him. Instead of protecting them, he allows, even orders, harmful situations to occur.

Grovdahl stated his decision would inevitably cause trauma to the child. He said his decision was NOT in the child's best interest, he said she needed to know her "culture". Meaning because she was brown skinned she could not remain with the only family she knew for the entire 2.5 years of her life. Grovdahl is harming the children of Spokane.

He makes decisions based on ridiculous politically biased beliefs. His decisions have damaged families, the elderly, and children. The Wa. Bar and the circle the wagons justice system in Spokane thinks he's a god, but the his public victims think otherwise.
