LET'S PROTEST

Post  Condor on Tue Nov 18, 2014 3:40 pm

Given that every expert on the topic states that the less contentious a divorce, the better the outcome for everyone involved, especially children, yet the longer and more acrimonious the proceedings, the more the attorneys stand to profit, the current system of divorce in Massachusetts doesn't even make sense at the most basic level if the public good is of any real consideration whatsoever.

While I could state a laundry list of horrors that occurred during three and a half needless, financially and emotionally devastating years in and out of the Barnstable Probate & Family Court that destroyed what was left of a family of four while the attorneys involved were more concerned with protecting their relationships with the judge and one another than the interests of their clients, and growing richer all the while, it would be fruitless.

What I am hoping won't be a waste of time however is soliciting ideas for reform and raising the possibility of good, old fashioned (and legal) public protest.... So lets start a conversation about how we can change it and then organize to make our voices heard.  Anybody with me?

Great, that makes two.  Anyone else tired of their tax dollars going to a system that benefits no one but the attorneys?  Let's grow this into the 1000's.

I am also in, Condor.
In my case, the ruling by Judge Ryley has been damaging to my young child beyond comprehension!
Judge Ryley is abusing his power to an extreme. The men, women and children of Barnstable County are suffering tremendously because of this man.
We all must do our part to stop this shameful abuse.

got plenty to tell

Ok, that is 4. Isn't that enough to start a grass roots protest? We need to discuss strategy and our rights. Perhaps a joint letter to Sara Peak, state rep? Can we set up a time/public place to meet?

My case might be considered one of the worst cases of injustices in Barnstable county. My story alone would bring him down. Plus I know another case that would greatly disgrace him if publicized.

4 AND COUNTING...

Post  Condor on Sun Jan 18, 2015 5:38 pm

I agree, "Barnstable Justice?", we should discuss how to proceed.  

There would seem to be three general matters at end, those being what we would like to see changed, how to get others to join our ranks, and how to get real attention once we have done so to make ourselves heard.

(That said, if you or anyone else has a better idea as to how to go about all this I am more than happy to defer as I am solely in this to try and make sure that more lives are not ruined as a result of a system that is tragically broken)

Also, I would like to reiterate again that while I am NO fan of Judge Ryley's to put it mildly, the real enemy is the system that empowers and enables him and those like him.  Even if he were to be sanctioned or disbarred, the way the system is set up, another one just like him would soon take his place.  Let's not lose sight of the forest for the trees.

My attorney spoke to me off the record of Judge Ryley's prejudices, abuse and misconduct.  Did that stop my attorney from cashing my checks? No.  Did they complain about him to the Bar? No.  Because they had a financial incentive not to rock the boat.  Divorce is a billion dollar industry in the U.S.

First and foremost, when it comes child custody, the fate and welfare of the children involved should not be driven by profit.  One way to potentially change this is to fight for legislation that puts divorce lawyers in Massachusetts on a fixed, yearly salary.

I know for a fact that my ex-spouse's attorney found her to be unreasonable and given to frequent perjury yet it never deterred her from endlessly launching her next slanderous claim on her behalf… because every time she did so there was more money in it.  Had this attorney been on a fixed, yearly salary I highly doubt that half of the nonsense would have occurred.

Anyway, that's just one thought to get the ball rolling.  Please add your thoughts so we can grow and move this forward.

Smart ditection. You're absolutely right the lawyers do the same to us. All of the ones that we paid said the same thing. Ryley is inept, biased, and unnecessarily elongating an already explosively expensive divorce...yet won't encourage cjc action, etc.
I like your thinking. What next?

To "Condor" and "Barnstable Justice?"
...And the many others who have posted in this forum about the injustice in the Barnstable County Court System.
I personally know that if you contact KC Myers at the CC Times she will connect us.
We need to meet and talk.
I have ideas to explore with you.

Sorry for the delayed response but wanted to give some thought as to the best way to go forth.  Here's what I'm thinking:

On the home page of the Barnstable County Bar Association it states, "We are committed to working to improve the legal profession, our state and local communities and the administration of justice."

Lets begin by drafting a letter addressed to each of their board of directors and officers that basically states that the current system, at least as far as  Barnstable County is concerned, runs contrary to that claim, is causing irreparable harm, and is tragically broken with a few illustrations of how.  And then have it signed by as many of us as we can muster and CC the Cape Cod Times and all of our local and state representatives.

In other words, put the ball in their court in public fashion to start with.  Perhaps one or more members of the Barnstable County Bar Association may respond with ways to reform the system, in which case we can hold them to helping us make it happen, or, if it is met with silence, that is an indictment that we can also use going forward.

I will take a stab at drafting that letter in the next few days, then post it here so that anyone interested can offer their ideas for revisions which I will then incorporate so that we are all in agreement as to the content.  That said, while I know we all have personal horror stories which will be of use at some point, we should keep it relatively brief and concise.

Once that letter is complete and agreed upon, I will post an email address where all those who want to can send me their names so that I can add them to the letter along with my own.

In any case, I think it is a way to get the ball rolling.

What if my case is ongoing?

Post  question on Mon Feb 16, 2015 12:16 pm

Can the names/examples added to this letter be shielded from the judge? I don't see how anyone of us can add a name in protest against this judge if it furthers damages ongoing cases...

Barnstable justice you mention another case that you hurt him if it went public. Can you give us a little idea as to which case it is? I'm wondering if it's the little girl that took her life.
