NEW YORK, May 2, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The Foundation for the Child Victims of the Family Courts (FCVFC), a nonprofit organization dedicated to resolving family custody cases, has offered support and sponsorship to a heroic African-American Grandmother (Dr. AH) in filing a legal challenge invoking the Federal Civil Rights laws against the State Juvenile Court Judiciary and against the laws of the State of Tennessee (in the Jackson Division of the United States District Court for the Western District of Tennessee).
In FCVFC client Dr. AH's civil action case (Case Number 1:16-cv-01065-JDB-egb), the Grandmother sought a Jurisdictional transfer from a State Court into the Federal Court under the provisions of 28 USC1443.
A white Judge, Christy R. Little in Jackson, Madison County, Tennessee forbade access to case documents and evidence held (or not held) by the Juvenile Court Clerk's file to prevent the long-time custodial grandmother (who holds a Ph.D. in divinity) from learning the true procedural posture of her case. The judge favored the removal of children from their Grandmother, who has had possession for over a dozen years, to a dangerous and abusive father recently released from Federal Prison.
When the Grandmother, Dr. AH, sought to open these files, Judge Little changed case/docket numbers three times for the same case (a procedure completely outside the rules of the Tennessee Courts), and simultaneously renamed the case (without notice, complaint, motion or Petition of any kind). The Judge renamed the moving party, which had been the abusive biological father, to the Guardian ad Litem, Joshua Dougan, Esq., for purposes of making inaccessible information for the litigant to exercise her substantive or procedural rights to due process of law.
Judge Little proceeded (under the third case number, created only after Grandmother Dr. AH's April 4, 2016 Notice of Removal) without a hearing, which had been scheduled under the second of the previous two case numbers.
FCVFC charges that Judge Christy Little's manipulations possibly constitute fraud in a criminal sense, also implicating the Guardian ad Litem with conspiracy to commit criminal fraud. The Judge may have put herself at risk of being found in contempt of Federal Court and violation of Federal and State Criminal Laws concerning the filing of false, altered or fraudulent documents with the Clerk of Court.
Grandmother Dr. AH's Civil Rights Removal also rested on a close look at the Tennessee statutory scheme which permits judges to prefer the biological parents over the best non-parents, and to ignore race-and-culturally specific tendencies, such as the Afro-American Family's historically matrilineal and matriarchal formation.
The FCVFC has no lawyer "on the ground" in Tennessee (it is often difficult to find local lawyers who will challenge other local judges), but is supporting and assisting Dr. AH to take the necessary actions aimed at enforcing her Civil Rights Removal and void/vacate Judge Little's post-removal actions and orders, and delineate the limits to Judicial Immunity for violations of the Fundamental Constitutional, Civil and Human Rights of children and custodial parents, as well as to right the astounding injustices done in one single family.
The legal excesses of the courts show no penchant for decrease in appetite for control and have in fact created a vortex like atmosphere in which children are spirited out of the hands of protective parents into the hands of their abuser.
The Foundation for the Child Victims of the Family Courts was created to defend against state judicial, administrative, and regulatory deprivation of rights focused on the deprivation of rights asserted by and belonging to protective parents caught in legal apparatus of courts dealing with child and family matters. Too often modern judicial regulatory policy and "law" are enveloped in a miasma of arbitrary, capricious and over reaching authority.
