Default Our birdy made to press again.

As it appear our birdy made news again.

For thouse who not aware is why birdy you can read this
Trimming bird wings in hamilton

So article about Judge's writing style but reference two decisions with birdy

In the words of Justice Alex Pazaratz

Quote:
in an unusual case where a mother had been ordered to make payments to the father who had been given sole custody of their child.
this pretty much said it all. Sad.

WD

PS
For thouse who decide to read latest decision... no it did not slow birdy down as hoped. She already payed 3k and filed motion to change with the same affidavits. So trial #3 looks like approaching...

Sorry to hear that.

I think people who incessantly litigate suffer from some sort of mental illness.
It is appalling that they get away with this.

You know WD, if you had been in front of some of other Judges - they would have taken the OCL report and gone with it.... and this story would have been completely the other way.

390 hours at $35 is a steal, (or the $11,500 she actually paid). If you hired a lawyer your bill would be upwards of $120,000!

What are they referring too about not making an offer to settle 7 days in advance? Was the offer(s) you made not 7 days before your next court hearing(s)?

Great Article WD!! You've made a significant contribution to clipping the wings of other wannabe birdy's, helping many of us still fighting the good fight.

Sorry to hear your birdy appears to be a very slow learner. Has she been declared a vexatious litigant yet?

lawyer would not bill 390 hours. I spent probably twice more but the whole point was to show amount of time and not money side and let judge to decide.
She did not pay. She filed for bancruptcy. Here judge went over history of what paid and what not if you interested...

It was not. Offer to settle was not on my priority list and I think I just missed that 7 days before period scrambling to prepare for the trial...

Not yet but after trial #3 what I really hope is going to be last one she might. Saying that I do not think it will change her approach a bit.

My ex has to get leave of the court each and every time. This was put in place by requesting a "case management judge." In other words, we get the same judge for as long as the judge has seized the file.

Has it made any difference? No. Since case management the judge has continued to approve any and all applications by my ex - I believe this is merely for entertainment value for the judge.

When you request a case management judge you run the risk of getting a judge you may not want. We ended up getting a judge who used to preside over personal injury cases and who was very unpopular in that venue. Lawyers in that area were quite relieved when the judge moved to family law. Our bad luck - we were assigned this judge. I believe we could change the judge but my lawyer was reluctant to do this.

Next time I get dragged to court I will self-represent and request a different judge. Not sure how I do that but if there is a way I will find it.

It's been blissfully peaceful this past year as ex's g/f has suffered a heart attack and a stroke. I have always maintained that had it not been for this woman my ex and I would not have been in court for past 5 years. So do I wish ex's g/f a speedy recovery? Not a chance. I hope Karma keeps dishing out justice as opposed to the courts.

WD - can you go for summary judgement? Are you able to request case management by the judge you favored?
