Silenced Mamas Speak back to Commissioner Slabach!
San Francisco Family Law Commissioner Marjorie A. Slabach was featured as a "queen" alongside of other California county judges in "Familawt" years ago. Picture featured on the Rogues Gallery at http://home.earthlink.net/~elnunes/camelot.htm Silenced Mamas Speak back to Commissioner Slabach!
“Dear Janice Mirikitani, I heard you are going to be the keynote speaker to honor Marjorie Slabach. Miss Slabach is responsible for hundreds of damaging rulings, hurting families and children, particularly women, and especially poor women.”
Opening letter address from Dominique Bremond to Janice Mirikitani, president of the Glide Foundation. It was concerning her outrage of an upcoming event honoring San Francisco Family Law Commissioner, Marjorie A. Slabach. She is one of many “Silenced Mamas” impacted by Slabach’s biased and unjust rulings.
A series of shock waves hit my comrades of POOR Magazine/PNN, just recently. Searching the internet google site, three weeks ago, I discovered an upcoming event that would be honoring a certain presiding judicial officer: San Francisco Family Law Commissioner, Marjorie A. Slabach! What was even more outrageous was the title of the event: “Through the Eyes of Children.”
This is a hard slap to the face of all “Silenced Mamas” who were (and still are) victims of Marjorie A. Slabach in family custody and other cases within her courtroom. Since December 11th, 2007, POOR has painstakingly kept track of some of Slabach’s activities consisting of unethical judicial misconduct. We’ve done this through media, and action. Re-porting her injustices within the courtroom, and sup-porting her victims.
The “Silenced Mamas” movement continues to increase with every single biased ruling rendered by Slabach. Her "rulings" coupled with a misogynist-like attitude are often against female litigants in custody and other cases.
Following a blatant miscarriage of justice, in which myself, and “Tiny” Lisa Gray-Garcia witnessed her unlawfully take the child away from a single mom, Sandra Thomsen, the “Revolutionary Legal Advocacy Project” was born that same day. Myself, and Tiny felt this was critical need to formulate this project in order to penetrate the lies within an unjust legal system that deliberately targets people in poverty.
Single moms, or we’ve at POOR call “Silenced Mamas” every time their rights are robbed at the San Francisco Superior Courthouse, on 400 McAllister St Dept# 404. (Where Slabach often hears cases, and literally silences the voices of mamas.) “How could Marjorie Slabach do this to our family? She gave my dad a five year restraining order against my mum.”
Explains an anonymous petitioner in their comments on the online petition, “Action to Unseat Judge Marjorie A. Slabach” following their own experience with Slabach. (I created this petition in an effort to hopefully have her removed from this bench, someday.) “He was the violent one, how can this happen in family court? Kids recover best from divorce when their parents communicate? This is terrible! How could a judge do this to us?”
“Action to Unseat Judge Marjorie A. Slabach.” Link to petition: http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/mothersagainstslabach/?e Arrival to her courtroom upon departing the elevator, an art portrait of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. is posted on the wall. This is quite hypocritical considering the overwhelming masses of injustices stemming form this courthouse, and not just from Slabach, herself.
A fetish form of blatant blasphemy of a leader who dedicated and sacrificed his very life for the civil rights of all, particularly the poor. Straight ahead is another art portrait of Cesar Chavez. Walking past the whispering between the litigants and their attorneys, I often feel the process of elimination preparations. Attorneys alleging adequate representation to their clients. Inside her courtroom, the aura in the atmosphere is a silent stench of hidden evils.
Psychological evaluation recommendations for the “best interests of the child”, which are typically tainted and even false in supervised visitation reports submitted for Slabach’s review. Outside her courtroom, an expected fair and just hearing often becomes the opposite to the unsuspecting. “Her rulings are totally irrational, spur of the moment.” Says Dominique Bremond.
Bremond went into further detail regarding Slabach in a recent online interview with me: “For example, we, my ex and I, had a mediation scheduled with Slabach, in her office, in order to see if we could avoid a trial and find a compromise. Slabach had a bad cold that day, so she decided to see us in the courtroom instead of her office, which was fine. She kept sneezing and blowing her nose, she was obviously uncomfortable.
After a few minutes, she became angry over what I said which was "the situation we have is working, I see no reason to upset my son's schedule. She (Slabach) yelled at me, sneezed and mumbled something. Then, my ex made a comment, I don't remember what, but nothing outrageous. Suddenly, Slabach through a fit, as she was sneezing and coughing, saying: "That's it, this is going to trial!" She immediately called the clerk to schedule a date for a trial with Judge (Donna) Hitchens, insisting, we HAD to have Judge Hitchens.”
What Dominique Bremond received in the end from Slabach was a waste of her time, and a great deal of expense. “So the mediation, in fact, never actually took place. Instead we had another Slabach tantrum. I had seen some of her tantrum as I was waiting for my turn in her courtroom. The trial cost me $$$$$. The evaluator lied in her report, lied on the stand under oath. She charged the top end of this type of evaluation, over $12,000. Hitchens couldn't care less, but that's another story.”
We’re not just members of the bar Here in Familawt, Familawt We’re connoisseurs of the bizarre! Best interests of the children is our watchword We frown upon disparagement and blame In short there is simply not, a more congenial spot For ending your relationship than here in Fam-i-lawt Familawt. Familawt!!
