The answer to the question in the title is yes, someone could falsely allege Chris Matthews is a child molester on a civil restraining order application and face no consequences…though the publicity might be unpleasant all around. Could someone falsely allege that NPR’s “Terry Gross procures young girls for pimps”? Yep (or feeds them drugs)—and […]
Betty Krachey is miffed. She’s fought for months to raise awareness of legal fraud in her state of Tennessee. She’s started a petition, she’s written letters and made calls, and she’s even discoursed with one of her state representatives, who’s told her he intends to raise the issue of holding false accusers accountable in legislative […]
Earlier posts on this blog introduced the Kayden Jayce Foundation and its interest in collecting the stories of victims of parental alienation and legal abuse. This post introduces its founder, Melissa Harvey, who presents an overview of the foundation’s services and who appeals to civic conscience, especially that of business owners, for support of the foundation’s […]
I responded to a paper published last year by law professor Kelly Behre, who took umbrage that so-called FRGs (father’s rights groups) were promulgating the statistic that 80% of restraining orders were frivolous or false. This conjectural statistic (60 to 80%) was, I believe, postulated by Save Services based on its studying available information, which […]
This blog was inspired by firsthand experience with judicial iniquity. Its author has never been accused of violence, doesn’t sanction violence except in self-defense or the defense of others, and has been a practicing vegetarian since adolescence. I have, what’s more, hazarded my life going to the aid of non-human animals. In one instance, I […]
“A U.S. law professor, who will be speaking at the Commons, said the UK’s stance on false allegations [of rape] is more aggressive than in countries such as the United States, Canada, and Australia. Prof. Lisa Avalos, of the University of Arkansas, said false allegations in the U.S. were dealt with as a misdemeanour offence, […]
Apologies are offered upfront to the reader expecting a tutorial on how to recant false testimony (though here is an explication about how a restraining order may be dismissed by a petitioner who has reconsidered). The reason this post must disappoint is that to withdraw false allegations would be to confess to lying to the court and would, as […]
For the public to be aware of procedural abuses, it has to hear about them. (The blog author’s own story is here, a budding novelist’s is here, a former businesswoman and part-time superhero’s is here, and a former lawyer’s is here.)
Call yourself whatever you want (or nothing at all). Email addresses are strictly confidential, and providing one is optional (but will allow you to be notified of others’ responses and to dialogue immediately if you wish).
The Communications Decency Act exempts this blog’s author from any liability for what you say. Use of an accuser’s name or likeness is advised against, however, for your own protection. Otherwise, civility is the only constraint upon your speech.
See this post, especially, which summarizes much of what these topical editorials concern and may be of value to anyone desperate to explain to a family member, friend, significant other, teacher, spiritual adviser, counselor, employer, attorney, or journalist how s/he’s been wrongly represented and injured. Few people who haven't been abused by them know restraining orders are abused; fewer still how they’re abused or why.
Those with restraining order cases pending are prompted to consult the blog’s Q & A page. Corrections to its author’s interpretations and grudging knowledge, incidentally, are always welcomed.
Since laws concerning restraining orders, their implementation and customs, and different means to combat them can vary from state to state, visitors are also urged to investigate and familiarize themselves with the rules that obtain in their home jurisdictions.
They’re further urged to secure the counsel of a qualified, reliable, and ethical attorney if at all within their means (some do exist).
The restraining order racket is a rigged game that tends to reward inveterate liars and their invertebrate minions.
The truth won’t set you free.
