The Tsimhoni divorce and custody case in Oakland County, MI has taken another step forward, and this article makes clear just how wrongheaded Mike Volpe’s article on it is.
As you’ll recall from yesterday’s post, Volpe abandoned facts and logic to attack what Judge Lisa Gorcyca has done. His only real hope of convincing anyone of his point of view came in his effort to discredit Parental Alienation Syndrome. He made a mess of it. As I mentioned yesterday, attacking Dr. Richard Gardner isn’t the same as attacking PAS, although PAS deniers love to pretend it is. And the fact that a judge in a case, somewhere, sometime gave custody of children to an abusive father means frankly nothing about parental alienation generally and even less about the Tsimhoni case. To top it all off, Volpe chose to attack PAS despite the fact that no one has accused the plaintiff mother in the case of PAS, only parental alienation.
