  • Federal Judge Hits Texas DFPS with $50,000/Day in Fines

    November 12, 2019 by Robert Franklin, JD, Member, National Board of Directors

    When I practiced law, I never had a judge find me or a client in contempt of court.  I never had a judge say this to me or a client:

    I can no longer find [you] to be credible in any way,” Jack said. “It’s shameful … You all cannot be relied upon for anything. Period.

    You have created a crisis. You are trying to fix it and blame it on somebody else.

    I’ve never had a judge accuse a client of lying under oath, threaten to put a client in jail or reprimand me or a client for lack of appropriate courtroom decorum.

    “Parents going through divorce should not fear losing significant parenting time with their children and, even more importantly, children should not feel abandoned by one of their parents,” she said in a news release.
