The early advantage to Brooke for using Charlie’s Porn Love Goddesses….and “violent love” to change the visitation time.
Counter went to Sheen for taking advantage of Mueller's repeatedly choosing to use drugs, although as long as Brooke's mother steps in, Brooke has (at least in her mind) no reason to stop. Unfortunately, competent reporting was not a result.
One concern was Judge Hank Goldberg never, on his own motion, called for supervised visitation of the children although clearly aware there is much drug abuse on both sides of the case.
As the Sheen-Mueller pattern seemed lost on Judge Goldberg our second concern was that Judge Goldberg put the children at risk by not appointing counsel for either child.
A third concern was Judge Goldberg did not order mental health evaluations for either party.
But our fourth and deepest concern was once Judge Goldberg suspected abuse, short-hand for criminal activity, he kicked media out of the court...and didn't refer the matter to the police or CPS.
Why did not one media outlet not report that?
This ongoing lack of action on the part of Judge Goldberg does not appear to be in the best interests of the children, which is supposed to be the standard Judge Goldberg bases all orders.
The attorneys are essentially out of it. (This information generally comes as news to the client.) In some family court they are identified as Custody Evaluators and should be avoided at all costs. Sometimes they’re just referred to as therapists. Although as these cases reveal, these so called “professionals” are seldom vetted.
Although we looked forward to Judge Goldberg applying the best interests of the children in his rulings, it never happened.Currently, it appears Judge Goldberg gave in to the attorneys for both. Judge Goldberg at the very least, could have included Supervised visitation for both parents. Instead, the children remain, at risk.
We are mindful however, that Supervised Visitation is the very first step in the process of Courts facilitating parental alienation.
We are also mindful Supervised Visitation is also the process used to adjudicate family related crimes, in the form of dumbing down language.
(How else could kidnapping be described as “parental abduction?”)Sadly, Judge Goldberg invoked no standard of behavior for either parent.
California Family Code Section 7507, states:
"The abuse of parental authority is the subject of judicial cognizance in a civil action brought by the child, or by the child's relative within the third degree, or by the supervisors of the county where the child resides; and when the abuse is established, the child may be freed from the dominion of the parent, and the duty of support and education enforced." This code is largely, useless; as the County, at least in San Diego, refuses to act. Please advise if County supervisors in your county are better.NY: No media unless a judge like Judge Gerald Garson comes along. Match Judge Garson with the extremely unlikely occurrence of a DA's office that actually listens, and pretty soon the judge and other court officials are arrested. The Judge for accepting bribes. (Note: Family Court judges not being different than other judges.)
