It's no coincidence!!! We were on this bridge back in 1955. Anyone remember the outcome? I'll give you a hint: "Our mistreatment was just not right, and I was tired of it" - Rosa Parks.

Perhaps our country has learned from past mistakes of discrimination?

@Feminism:

Obviously, LYING is something you have no problem with. Furthermore, coming on here and admitting that's what you do, exposes your utter ignorance and perhaps mental instablility. You need professional help.

I feel sorry for any innocent children you have any influence with. Some role-model.  Now go away, stomp your feet and throw your little hissy-fit.

Once a liar, always a liar.

Chief Justice Lavorato:

"While much about our court system has changed in many ways over time, one constant remains:  the values that guided courts in the past, guide them today—our courts are fair and impartial, accountable to the law and the Constitution, and in this way our courts are always accountable to the people." 

__________________________________________

 

i FIND THIS AN INTERESTING STATEMENT SEEING THAT IF THE VALUES THAT GUILDE THE COURTS TODAY HAVE NEVER CHANGED AND ARE THE SAME AS THE ONES THAT GOT US IN THIS MESS TO BEGIN WITH, IT WOULD SEEM JUSTIFIABLE PRUDENT TO CHANGE THEM. COURTS ALL OVER THIS COUNTRY HAVE BECOME ARROGANT AND JUSTICES HAVE GIVEN THEMSELVES A SORT OF GODHEAD IN THE TREATMENT OR LACK THERE OF IN FAMILY CASES AS WELL AS DIVORCE CASES. AND WHILE CREATING A VICTIM TYPE MINDSET AS WELL AS MAKING IT HARD TO REPRESENT ONES SELF IN COURT IN MY OPINION HAVE ACTUALLY PERPETUATED WHAT CAN NOW ONLY BE SEEN AS A GROSS MIS-USE OF THE POWER OF THE COURTS. ITS SAD IN A NATION AS OURS THAT LAW MUST BE CONSTRUED IN ORDER TO SERVE THE BEST INTEREST OF THE COURT AND SAVE FACE OF THOSE WHO MEAN TO DISREGARD OUR CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS. IT IS OUR LAWS THAT GUIDE OUR COUNTRY, BUT IT IS MEN AND WOMEN FULL OF SELFNESS AND IGNORANCE WHO CHOOSE TO PERVERT IT TO THE POINT WHERE IT HAS NO MEANING. AS NON-CUSTODIAL PARENTS WE SUFFER FOR THE LACK OF ABILITY THRU LAW TO PROVIDE BETTER FOR OUR CHILDREN. AND OUR CHILDREN SUFFER FOR THE LACK OF A COURT SYSTEM AS WELL AS GOVERMENT IN WHICH THEIR BEST INTEREST INVOLVES US. THESE COURTS SHOULD BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR THE MISTREATMENT OF OUR CHILDREN JUST AS WE ARE HELD TO THE LAW THAT DISREGARD OUR RIGHTS AS PARENTS

Chief Justice Lavatory has spoken... flush...

Maybe Ms. Ternus will turn things to favor BOTH parents, equally, eh?

We shall see what the Thinnes family, and the Culver family have to say.
Marie Thinnes & Gov Chet Culver are now, or soon to be at Terrace Hill.

Will they speak up and create fairness, equality and justice, or just soak up more of YOUR tax dollars, like RaY and Brandstad/Braindead did?

Chet never answered my persistent emails, about equal parenting, after divorce.

Send your e-mail by certified letter. I'm sure the Governor does not sign for his own certified mail but include asking for a non political response from the Governor.

Certified letters should also be sent to Mike Gronstal's home.

Bryan can post these responses or non responses.

Budget Ax Continues to Hit Iowa Courts  

 

Des Moines, June 25, 2009—Today, the Iowa Supreme Court announced another round of cost cutting for the state's court system—the second round of cuts since January. This latest round of cuts is necessary to balance the Judicial Branch budget for Fiscal Year 2010, which begins July 1. 

 

"We must operate within the limits of our appropriation from the legislature," said Chief Justice Marsha Ternus, Iowa Supreme Court. "As stewards of public funds, the Supreme Court is resolved to do everything in its power to reduce our operating expenses. However, as the leaders of Iowa's justice system we are deeply concerned about the impact continuing cuts will have on our ability to deliver quality court services to the public.  Because of the effects of the nation's economic downturn, people need court services now more than ever."

 

For Fiscal Year 2010, the Supreme Court reduced Judicial Branch operating expenses by $5.4 million. The court cut approximately $635,000 in non-personnel expenses. The bulk of the cuts, nearly $4.8 million, come in the form of a statewide workforce reduction.   Unlike the round of cuts earlier this year, the latest cuts do not include unpaid leave, judicial travel restrictions and court closures.  

 

"The cuts imposed earlier this year such as court closures and travel restrictions were stop-gap measures required to cope with a severe, mid-year deappropriation. We need not resort to these measures now because we've had more time to plan and we have a full year during which to absorb the impact of the cuts," said Chief Justice Ternus.  "The supreme court is determined to keep the court system open to the public without interruption. Nevertheless, the cuts we implement today will impair our service to the public.   With fewer judges and court staff to address the workload, delays will continue to grow and quality may suffer."

 

The Judicial Branch will reduce its workforce primarily through the use of vacancies. All told, the Judicial Branch will eliminate or hold open nearly 50 vacant court staff positions that come from all levels of the court system. For the first time in years, the Judicial Branch will hold open judicial vacancies as a way to reduce expenses. The Supreme Court will make exceptions for judicial positions assigned to juvenile court and judicial positions for which a judicial district can show a compelling need to fill.  In addition, the Judicial Branch will lay off about 15 members of its staff, including 13 court reporters. 

 

 "To cope with severe shortfalls in the early part of this decade, we cut deeply into the ranks of most of our staff, but we did not cut court reporter jobs. This year, we will reduce our court reporter workforce by 10% and begin pooling court reporters," said State Court Administrator David Boyd. "This will be a big change for our judges. Even so I am confident that we can effectively cover all of the trial courts' reporting needs by pooling court reporters. Pooling is much more cost effective than our traditional practice of assigning one court reporter to one judge. It will reduce court reporter down time and save taxpayers nearly $1.5 million." 

 

"Reducing our workforce is a tough decision. But there are no good or easy choices for reducing our operating budget," said Chief Justice Ternus. "Every choice has drawbacks that affect our service to the public so the court took great care to approve measures that will preserve the fundamental functions of the judicial branch through the tough economic times ahead."

And yet the Supreme Court of Iowa doesn't see the problem with non-modification of child support obligations during these tough economic times.

Interesting to note, there were no judges available on 01/11/2010.

Iowa is still very pro-woman. The judges still hold a heavy bias for them. Recently, my son was beaten by my exwife's boyfriend and I took him to the er. I also filed a police report and refused to bring him back until the investigation was concluded (5 days). My exwife was over paid child support and she felt she needed more, as well. What happened? Last Thursday, Judge Schillig says she gets more money, everything i paid to child support recovery doesn't cout and i get 160 days jail- because "how dare you keep a child from his mother?"

By the way, if anyone sees this soon and knows anything about appeals for contempt- I would appreciate a conversation before I have to go for processing.
