Kelly Rutherford’s War With Ex-Husband Continues

Kelly Rutherford's War With Ex-Husband Continues

You always hurt the one you love. Or in this case, the one you used to love. The war between Kelly Rutherford and her ex-husband Daniel Giersch continues, as the Gossip Girl actress was granted a deposition with her ex today (September 24) to discuss their ongoing child custody dispute involving their two children Hermés, 3, and Helena Grace, 1.

RadarOnline reports that it will be strictly limited to child custody and visitation, not the issue surrounding Daniel’s visa status. Kelly had previously attempted to get Daniel’s visa revoked on the grounds that she was concerned her ex, a German businessman, would flee the country with their kids. However the judge ruled today that him taking the children to Germany was “very low.”

Per their temporary child custody agreement Kelly lives in New York City with Hermés and Helena Grace while she films Gossip Girl; Daniel is currently residing there as well.

    Now, obviously I don’t know the whole story, but DAMN does Kelly Rutherford come off like a first-class BITCH in this story. Having your ex’s visa revoked?! That is some hard-core c*nty behaviour.

    I see nothing wrong with her wanting to do that, he could very well take off with the children to Germany and she’d never see them again. Don’t you remember the man who tried to get his kids from his ex wife in was it like Japan or some where and the laws there forbid him from taking them home even though he was the one with custody.

      It’s GERMANY, not frickin’ Iran!

        It happens in western countries too. There are far too many cases of a parent kidnapping the kids to another country and the other parent going through legal hell to try and get them back.

    But if his Visa was revoked, wouldn’t that mean he couldn’t stay in the US with his kids? I do get the distinct impression that she married him for the sperm and now she just wants him to go away.

    • Anonymous

      Yep, that’s *exactly* what that means. She wants to completely cut him out of their life.

      • Paradox

        Stop crying, Daniel Giersch! You are not a baby – are you?!

    Let’s not forget the woman who took her son to South America to visit family and died. It was years before the father got his child back. And MSNBC just had an article about a man returning from India where he visited his children that his wife had absconded with. And they had to stay in India. It’s can be risky to have a child with a foreign national.

    • Anonymous

      Again, it’s GERMANY, not some third-world dictatorship hellhole.

      • Shell

        The other children were taken from the US and not to Iran. If her gut instinct tells her to worry, she probably should.

        • Anonymous

          so, it’s basically OK for her to cut her children off from his father? she’s basically doing exactly what she says she’s afraid he’d do. Based on this, I’d be willing to bet she’s badmouthing him in front of the children and doing everything she can do to cause an alienation of affection. That is just as bad as absconding with children to another country and she is no better than someone who does that.

  • Anonymous

    Just because someone else took their child to another country, does not mean this man is going to take his.

    Kelly seems like a very mentally unstable person. You can’t just cut your ex out of your child’s life because you don’t like him anymore. He’s never done anything to suggest he is going to steal the children. He’s never been accused of harming them. He is their father rather she likes that or not.

    • Anonymous

      Exactly. I get real tired of mothers who are perfectly okay with cutting their children’s fathers out of their lives…dads have rights, too.

      • Anonymous

        They’re HIS kids, too. If he wants to take them to Germany, he has every right to do that.

        Sorry for all the posts, but this really just rubs me the wrong way!

    • Anonymous

      How do you know he’s never done anything to suggest that?? He’s probably threatened her many times and that’s why she’s worried and is doing this! I’m certain her concern doesn’t come out of nowhere.

    Not to mention the fact that if he’s an international businessman, she’s effing with his livelihood. And truth be told, I think *that* is the motivating factor for trying to get his visa revoked. She wants to screw him over any way she can. How about trying to have a little class, put aside your differences and work together to raise the two innocent kids you brought into the world.

    • Paradox

      Daniel Giersch is what? He is a lot, but not an international business man!

  • don’t thinking

    The huspand like iran not Germany and rutherford awlays be happy and beautiful

  • Audrey

    My son has joint custody with his ex-wife and there are great limitations on where the children can be taken to live due to the fear of fleeing with the girls. The exes family has been known to do such underhanded things. Because one fears their children will be taken from them permanently and wants safeguards isn’t the same thing as trying to cut a parent out.

    Apparently the visa hasn’t been revoked and it is strictly an issue about where kids can be taken.

  • Tracy

    This woman seems like she is nuts!!

      … wrote again Daniel Giersch!

    If she wanted to have her children alone, why didn’t she? It is very cruel to let a man believe that he is going to be a father, let him grow attached to the children and then just decide to cut him out.
    And, for the record, a parent that take his children to a different country so that the other parent doesn’t have any contact with them anymore OR a parent that try to have the visa of the other parent revoked so that he can’t stay in the country where his children live and thus lose contact with them IS EXACTLY THE SAME THING! And it’s hideous.

    the law in Germany ist strictly about the well being of the children – and when the children used to live with the mother, normally they will stay with the mother. And if the father would fly to Germany with the children and the Mother would go to police with the verdict she would get the children immediately. There is an international contract between the two countries, The Hague Convention of 25 October 1980 on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction.

  • Anonymous

    If only she loved her children more than she hates their father. She seems to be willing to do anything she can to interfere and impede his relationship with their children – doing so on the grounds he may interfere with her custody is rich.

    So many posts that sound like it´s from somebody personally involved.Like her husband.

    • Anonymous

      But I have to agree she seems to be a complete idiot. While for him I know he´s not 100% gentlemen either. Many people today suffer from borderline personality disorder. But most women will not stick to a man if he doesn´t fulfill their agenda anymore. They will even make their children suffer it seems :( I am glad I dumped my girlfriend of 3 months the moment I saw she´s not one to grow old with just like Kelly.

    OH MY GOD! So selfish and ignorant, we have laws to protect children here in Europe!!!

    It’s my right to go with my children to Germany, because of in Germany I’m more popular, then this instable woman, who wants to cut me out from life! When Google pays me $ 50.000.000 for my domain gmail.de, I’ll be superman!

    -URGENT MESSAGE- Re: Kelly Rutherford’s attorney, DAVID J GLASS PHd

    To all those with morals and to all those who love all children, that this David J. Glass Esq. PhD would giggle & laugh at me while waiting to see the judge. Shortly after this attached letter dated 2-12-12 was received by the community of Malibu, CA this David J. Glass Esq. PhD conspired to injure a 3rd party (myself), suborned perjury and falsified evidence just before he closed down his practice and went to FMBK Law. The CA State Bar has just received a 2nd complaint regarding this matter.

    2-12-12 Mr. Graham J Miller

    REGARDING CHILD ABUSE by DESIGN

    To The Principals of Malibu Elementary Schools and To Whom it may concern within the LAUSD and SMMUSD administrations, Directors or other persons.

    Dear Sir Madam or MS,

    I am writing to you firstly as a parent. I have a child in a Malibu public school. I am also writing as a Citizen, and therefore concerned in a more global manner with issues that I personally find disturbing and relevant. I believe a possible failure to perform to ethical codes of several professions, let alone what any normal person may find to be reasonable is about to, and could in the future lead to embarrassment, public consternation and at best a complete lack of faith ,trust and confidence in the above agencies.

    I have recently been informed by my daughter Lily-Jane Faith Miller that her mother has taken her out of Callahan elementary (Northridge); and she is now at some school in Malibu district. (Grade 2)

    My reasons for my concern follow.

    Within the Malibu school district there is a teacher, (C Cullen) who has accused her ex-husband of two counts of sexual abuse of their son, and 5 other counts of abuse of their son (11). This alleged abuse according to Ms. Cullen and her Attorney took place over the past 5 years.

    I would like a notation in my daughter’s file that she is never to be placed in class with the above person as her “(my daughters)” teacher. I apologize in in that I amenable to provide more details on my daughter’s whereabouts (school) but her Mom has not provided that info. I’m sure Dr Jacob the principal at Callahan would be able to assist.

    In MS Cullen’s divorce and custody case she utilized the services of a Mr. D Glass Esq.(Attorney) Mr Glass is also a PhD in Psychology .Mr. Glass was also utilized by the mother of my daughter, Lily -Jane in my own divorce and custody matter. Mr. Glass a Psychologist/ Attorney and mandated reporter saw fit to bring allegations of sexual abuse of a child and 4 allegations of other forms of abuse of MS Cullen’s son Sammy before family court. These all were investigated by the Police DCFS, and the District Attorney. They were found to be without either Medical or Credentialed 3rd party verification and closed therefore as unsubstantiated. These allegations were brought by MS Cullen via the services of Mr. Glass and occurred regularly before the summer school break on a yearly basis. MS Cullen had also recently remarried a Mr Brian Winsick another Teacher and coach in the Conejo Valley. Their marriage took place just prior to the allegations beginning.

    I will now outline my concerns and reasons for the request of the notation in my daughters file.

    It is my belief that the relationship between this teacher Ms. Cullen and her attorney and my own ex-wife and the same attorney is cause for reasonable concern. That to avoid any unfortunate incident where god forbid I was to be accused by my daughter’s mother of something similar as MS Cullen accused her ex-husband of it is imperative no establish able link is in place as could lead to suspicion of collusion. The worst case scenario that Ms. Cullen at some time becomes my daughters teacher and subsequently claims are made that perhaps my daughter had inferred to MS Cullen that I had abused her ( Lily-Jane) and MS Cullen then could relate this to my daughters mother through their mutual attorney, or contact at school is beyond horrific. I feel the separation of my daughter and this teacher protects LAUSD/SMMUSD and my daughter and me.

    In a more global sense I am concerned that a teacher married to another teacher and coach and an attorney who is also licensed as a psychologist made no attempt to make aware the LAUSD or the SMUSD of their concerns. (Two allegations of Sexual abuse and five other allegations of abuse.) Surely some ethical codes of their respective professions would demand other relevant or parties who could be impacted be advised.

    When a teacher finds the resources to pay $500 an hour to a Beverly Hills Attorney for 5 years surely there is a need for verification that such allegations will bring in terms of the expenses the County and State will bear during the protracted conflict. Especially if the accused has been made indigent by the continued claims and has suffered stress or work issues stemming from such accusations and is no longer paying taxes.

    As a parent I certainly would be outraged if I knew my child’s teacher was aware of a legitimate abuse situation and if, as in this case it included Sexual Abuse allegations and that teacher did nothing to bring attention to it as could protect other children I would expect answers. Specifically why and how a person(s) (2 Teachers, (Coach), An Attorney/Psychologist) would go ahead and consciously disregard accusations of such a serious nature, and then they having brought these allegations before family court and the district attorney go ahead and let other parents arrange activities with the person they were accusing of abuse in a manner as would expose other children to the accused.

    What is more disturbing and I expect the press will find disturbing is that repeated allegations of this nature are often utilized in family conflicts and that this is acceptable is in fact a failure of morality within our society. I believe this failure may have had a profound societal impact.

    That the failure of an application of evidentiary standards as are normally applied in criminal matters may have allowed credentialed persons possibly with questionable motive to use family court in a manipulative and deceitful way to achieve their own ends appears to me to be worthy of consideration.

    This epidemic of claims of abuse of children caught in such situations, (family breakups) versus children, who suffer actual abuse , desensitizes the general public and governmental agencies and allows real and dangerous criminals to hide and operate with virtual impunity in our society. It is beyond Peter and the Wolf it is an ongoing crime against humanity. To falsely perpetrate something that I believe leads to what we are now facing in the LAUSD and SMMUSD and may have exacerbated, perpetuated and indeed by lack of action condoned events and actions that possibly has led to emotional; mental and even physical harm to any child is heinous.

    I believe because of the actions as I have described many prior red flags have been ignored in many abuse situations and much suffering and harm and expense could have been avoided if a less commonplace attitude of children was the norm.

    Indeed in the immediate situation with (C Cullen, B Winsick )either the allegations were scurrilous and a product of vitriol, and an attorney(PhD Psych) with who knows what motivation (7 Claims) and that these claims were worthy of public expense .Or these persons were aware the claims they were bringing were false and therefore not worthy of reporting to LAUISD/SMUSD or other parents.? The alternative is an admission of negligent lack of reasonable due diligence and surely a great lack of concern for the school both pupils and other teachers and parents has been flagrantly displayed in total disregard for the safety and welfare of minors. Whether this is or should be a concern for the bond holders of these persons I do not know. Mr. Glass, Glass family Law and former associate of (Kolodny & Anteau) One of the most respected family law firms in the United States (Mel Gibson Getty, etc.) has been investigated by the CA Bar already in this matter and while the complaint was not upheld a letter suggesting the possibility of civil redress was issued by them.

    The APA also found he did no wrong apparently within their own ethics code.

    The fact remains an Attorney/Psychologist and a Teacher and a Teacher/Coach surely have some duty to the community. The positions of trust and respect they are afforded should allow the general public a reasonableness within their expectation of propriety and protection of the innocent by such credentialed persons.

    Perhaps the LAUSD/SMUSD could incorporate or suggest to the CA Bar a cooperative relationship of a professional nature that would allow this protection to be afforded our children as well as draft a code for the LAUSD/SMUSD’s own employees in such situations.

    Certainly recent events could lead one to surmise that a better clarified way of maintaining the safety and welfare of our children, from both bonifide and false claims of abuse would be helpful. The harm that both real and imagined events can bring to families, as well as collateral persons and an institution such as children’s learning environment should be minimalized at all times.

    I am writing to you firstly as a parent. I have a child in a Malibu public school. I am also writing as a Citizen, and therefore concerned in a more global manner with issues that I personally find disturbing and relevant. I believe a possible failure to perform to ethical codes of several professions, let alone what any normal person may find to be reasonable is about to, and could in the future lead to embarrassment, public consternation and at best a complete lack of faith ,trust and confidence in the above agencies.

    I have recently been informed by my daughter Lily-Jane Faith Miller that her mother has taken her out of Callahan elementary (Northridge); and she is now at some school in Malibu district. (Grade 2)

    My reasons for my concern follow.

    Within the Malibu school district there is a teacher, (C Cullen) who has accused her ex-husband of two counts of sexual abuse of their son, and 5 other counts of abuse of their son (11). This alleged abuse according to Ms. Cullen and her Attorney took place over the past 5 years.

    I would like a notation in my daughter’s file that she is never to be placed in class with the above person as her “(my daughters)” teacher. I apologize in in that I amenable to provide more details on my daughter’s whereabouts (school) but her Mom has not provided that info. I’m sure Dr Jacob the principal at Callahan would be able to assist.

    In MS Cullen’s divorce and custody case she utilized the services of a Mr. D Glass Esq.(Attorney) Mr Glass is also a PhD in Psychology .Mr. Glass was also utilized by the mother of my daughter, Lily -Jane in my own divorce and custody matter. Mr. Glass a Psychologist/ Attorney and mandated reporter saw fit to bring allegations of sexual abuse of a child and 4 allegations of other forms of abuse of MS Cullen’s son Sammy before family court. These all were investigated by the Police DCFS, and the District Attorney. They were found to be without either Medical or Credentialed 3rd party verification and closed therefore as unsubstantiated. These allegations were brought by MS Cullen via the services of Mr. Glass and occurred regularly before the summer school break on a yearly basis. MS Cullen had also recently remarried a Mr Brian Winsick another Teacher and coach in the Conejo Valley. Their marriage took place just prior to the allegations beginning.

    I will now outline my concerns and reasons for the request of the notation in my daughters file.

    It is my belief that the relationship between this teacher Ms. Cullen and her attorney and my own ex-wife and the same attorney is cause for reasonable concern. That to avoid any unfortunate incident where god forbid I was to be accused by my daughter’s mother of something similar as MS Cullen accused her ex-husband of it is imperative no establish able link is in place as could lead to suspicion of collusion. The worst case scenario that Ms. Cullen at some time becomes my daughters teacher and subsequently claims are made that perhaps my daughter had inferred to MS Cullen that I had abused her ( Lily-Jane) and MS Cullen then could relate this to my daughters mother through their mutual attorney, or contact at school is beyond horrific. I feel the separation of my daughter and this teacher protects LAUSD/SMMUSD and my daughter and me.

    In a more global sense I am concerned that a teacher married to another teacher and coach and an attorney who is also licensed as a psychologist made no attempt to make aware the LAUSD or the SMUSD of their concerns. (Two allegations of Sexual abuse and five other allegations of abuse.) Surely some ethical codes of their respective professions would demand other relevant or parties who could be impacted be advised.

    When a teacher finds the resources to pay $500 an hour to a Beverly Hills Attorney for 5 years surely there is a need for verification that such allegations will bring in terms of the expenses the County and State will bear during the protracted conflict. Especially if the accused has been made indigent by the continued claims and has suffered stress or work issues stemming from such accusations and is no longer paying taxes.

    As a parent I certainly would be outraged if I knew my child’s teacher was aware of a legitimate abuse situation and if, as in this case it included Sexual Abuse allegations and that teacher did nothing to bring attention to it as could protect other children I would expect answers. Specifically why and how a person(s) (2 Teachers, (Coach), An Attorney/Psychologist) would go ahead and consciously disregard accusations of such a serious nature, and then they having brought these allegations before family court and the district attorney go ahead and let other parents arrange activities with the person they were accusing of abuse in a manner as would expose other children to the accused.

    What is more disturbing and I expect the press will find disturbing is that repeated allegations of this nature are often utilized in family conflicts and that this is acceptable is in fact a failure of morality within our society. I believe this failure may have had a profound societal impact.

    That the failure of an application of evidentiary standards as are normally applied in criminal matters may have allowed credentialed persons possibly with questionable motive to use family court in a manipulative and deceitful way to achieve their own ends appears to me to be worthy of consideration.

    This epidemic of claims of abuse of children caught in such situations, (family breakups) versus children, who suffer actual abuse , desensitizes the general public and governmental agencies and allows real and dangerous criminals to hide and operate with virtual impunity in our society. It is beyond Peter and the Wolf it is an ongoing crime against humanity. To falsely perpetrate something that I believe leads to what we are now facing in the LAUSD and SMMUSD and may have exacerbated, perpetuated and indeed by lack of action condoned events and actions that possibly has led to emotional; mental and even physical harm to any child is heinous.

    I believe because of the actions as I have described many prior red flags have been ignored in many abuse situations and much suffering and harm and expense could have been avoided if a less commonplace attitude of children was the norm.

    Indeed in the immediate situation with (C Cullen, B Winsick )either the allegations were scurrilous and a product of vitriol, and an attorney(PhD Psych) with who knows what motivation (7 Claims) and that these claims were worthy of public expense .Or these persons were aware the claims they were bringing were false and therefore not worthy of reporting to LAUISD/SMUSD or other parents.? The alternative is an admission of negligent lack of reasonable due diligence and surely a great lack of concern for the school both pupils and other teachers and parents has been flagrantly displayed in total disregard for the safety and welfare of minors. Whether this is or should be a concern for the bond holders of these persons I do not know. Mr. Glass, Glass family Law and former associate of (Kolodny & Anteau) One of the most respected family law firms in the United States (Mel Gibson Getty, etc.) has been investigated by the CA Bar already in this matter and while the complaint was not upheld a letter suggesting the possibility of civil redress was issued by them.

    The APA also found he did no wrong apparently within their own ethics code.

    The fact remains an Attorney/Psychologist and a Teacher and a Teacher/Coach surely have some duty to the community. The positions of trust and respect they are afforded should allow the general public a reasonableness within their expectation of propriety and protection of the innocent by such credentialed persons.

    Perhaps the LAUSD/SMUSD could incorporate or suggest to the CA Bar a cooperative relationship of a professional nature that would allow this protection to be afforded our children as well as draft a code for the LAUSD/SMUSD’s own employees in such situations.

    Certainly recent events could lead one to surmise that a better clarified way of maintaining the safety and welfare of our children, from both bonifide and false claims of abuse would be helpful. The harm that both real and imagined events can bring to families, as well as collateral persons and an institution such as children’s learning environment should be minimalized at all times.

    Sincerely Yours,

    Graham J Miller.

    As published in Psychology Today 3-13-13 letter

    Regarding Kelly Rutherford’s attorney, David J Glass PhD

    Child abuse by design

    Dear Ken ,

    It’s been more than a year since the letter of 2/12/12 and the apparent
    subsequent closing shortly thereafter of Glass Family Law. I
    understand he is now not promoting himself as uniquely blended in
    Psychology and Law but is at another firm doing probate work.
    Interestingly enough his resume at FMBK Law has claims of credentials
    I understand you believe are false based upon you direct written
    response from organizations Mr. Glass claims to be a member or
    associated with. Who does that reflect upon him or the diligence and
    propriety of the firm which now employs him?

    It occurred to me that the complete contrast in our cases is almost
    deafening in the way it shouts hypocrisy, maleficent practices, and
    flat out perjuries within statements written under penalty of perjury
    and oral statements within hearings and written statements within
    submitted briefs screams of the manipulation of parents. This IMHO by
    attorney’s, the bench and minor’s councils within the family
    court system in CA at least. Given I was asked to waive my Fifth
    Amendment Rights in family court? And did so .The issuance of
    restraining orders on both of us within 3 weeks of my letter of the
    12 of February under quote Justice Convey in your instance (“by the
    slimmest of margins”)one has to wonder at the coincidence…Right?
    Of course I was judged as having stalked by proxy because I hired a
    PI to prove my daughter was being housed with a felon (cultivating
    under a Federal Indictment),,, and the mother knew it.

    Indeed in your instance you were
    falsely accused of molestation by the mother of your son seven ( 7)
    times and then of stalking (8th)when the child was too old to falsely
    accuse the father of abuse .I note your minors council never
    interviewed your child even though Sammy was ten (10) . In your case
    no abuse took place yet you were put on monitored visitation and
    visitation reduced to police station pick-ups permanently. It would
    seem logical Ken that at some time you become a safe parent. When is
    that after your four (4th) parenting class? Or after the third 3rd
    interview with the District Attorney’s Office. How about after the
    8th sheriff or 13th DCFS investigations. What grade gives you a pass?
    Or is it like our friend who ponied up a Million dollars.

    In my case I alleged that the mother was negligent or deliberately sub
    parenting in a manner as was provocative .Lj was taken to UCLA med
    center at three & half (3 ½) .and on morphine and intravenous
    feeding for 6 weeks after the neighbors call the police because they
    could hear her screaming. I had previously stated the mother did not
    have the skills or empathy and may have been suffering some mental
    distress.

    Then
    two (2) years later numerous blood noses (daddy don’t put sunscreen
    on …its very sore) and Minors counsel accused me of overreacting
    etc. Yet my daughter now is showing a scar across her nose as her
    face has grown. Also when the symptoms that caused the first
    hospitalization reoccurred I took Lj to the Doctor without custodial
    privileges and was again accused of being alarmist yet the child’s
    diet was immediately changed by the mother and things improved.

    Not forgetting being accused of 10K in support arrears that the judge
    threw out as falsified spreadsheet CSSD said I never owed anything.
    As well as the LCSW saying the Mothers accusation I yelled at our
    daughter and threw a phone at her was a work of fiction. Perhaps that
    is why we have a letter from the Bar suggesting we pursue “civil
    action”.

    Given all this I am the one who is separated and monitored.

    My point is you are not a molester as the DA stated yet you are
    punished and to the opposite I can prove the mother has been ,may
    still be or is a least using sub care of my child in a provocative
    manner where my child may be suffering yet I am punished,. Quote
    (LCFS,,‘ The Mother is not currently negligent”)

    Really?

    Finally we have our friend who only after paying a million dollars was taken
    of monitoring, all accusations and interference stopped and can see
    his children when he wants.

    Here
    is the situation Given the violence in society killings in families,
    how much damage has been done to children and women, mothers Fathers
    parents and extended family by the propagation of this kind of
    duplicitous behavior within what seems to be a culture of deceit
    built around self-aggrandizing and financial self-serving that in
    fact amounts to fiscal abuse of children. What training skills and so
    on are lost in funneling the parent’s income to third party leeches
    using false or manipulated circumstances to serve their own
    interests?

    In
    my case I spent more than $ 47,072 seeing my daughter for twelve (
    12) hours each month for the last year.

    I
    kept my second residence in California, (rent) paid child support,
    Airfare from NY once a month air fare for a weekend from oversees
    and monitor costs including the monitors meals , go-cart rides,
    Taxis/transportation , lunches, entertainment, getting around,
    clothes, toys, books & games and adventures that I as her father
    are able to spend upon the daughter that I have raised!

    What type of enhanced opportunities could a different approach have made?

    If fathers are the enemy what will mothers become once a more robotic
    agenda is achieved .They will be phased out as well. Women should
    consider the short amount of time science is giving them to make the
    correct adjustments to this situation and police their own ranks from
    peers lawyers and malevolent individuals who care little for
    children, and will eventually throw mothers to the wayside in
    preference of the state. I mean do little girls really need to be
    born with a womb anymore?

    The societal cost of the emotional and mental anguish to children and
    subsequent family killings from person caught up in this situations
    is surely not worth the salaries of a the firms and government
    agencies who benefit from this culture…>All mothers, children
    and Fathers are at risk and more so daily as those uneducated to the
    manner they will be manipulated and have their conflict orchestrated
    to the fiscal advantage of others.

    My being asked to waive my 5th in family court because a stated somebody
    was a dead man walking, professionally speaking .It would seem I know
    what I’m doing as David J. Glass Ph.D. is now hobbled from abusing
    any more families and a judge who asks me if I wished merry Christmas
    to a Jewish Lawyer as a hateful gesture seems to be setting me up for
    something, especially since you had received notices mailed to your
    residence disclosing that David Glass would be on vacation during the
    “Christmas holidays”.

    Yet you Ken are a longtime Jewish friend and my father spent weeks in a
    cattle car on his way to Stalag IVIII in Poland.

    Was it not the Nazis who first separated children from parents?

    And then when I request the transcript from that hearing, I pay for it I
    and then get not the original but a copy and my money order is handed
    back to me and no one will say who was given the original?

    Lj
    says to me at age of 6 when I tell her mom loves her and will always
    be in her life

    She
    state’s to me …“She’s going to live a lot; she’s never
    going to die?”

    What is this child going to hold her mother responsible for and by what
    means will she do so?

    The enabling of conflict by those who seek to gain financially is simply
    evil and no different from an arms dealer who supplies both sides
    .The killing of life be it on an emotional ,intellectual, financial,
    mental, spiritual and /a or physical level is a death and no
    different from actually using a mechanical device. Too knowingly do
    so to children whose spirit is pure is inherently foul.

    To surmise IMHO the individuals and associated firms in our cases are
    only the tip of the iceberg.

    Michael J Kretzmer. David J.Glass Ph.d, Lori A. Darakjian, Elise Greenberg of
    Carlson & Greenberg, Psychologist Angus Strachan Ph.d of Lund &
    Strachan ,FMBK Law , Kolodny & Anteau represent a blight upon
    what was once a noble profession .

    Please get back to me with your thoughts, I am thinking about copying this
    letter and the letter of 2-12-2012 to the California Attorney
    General.

    Thanks

    Graham.
