Re: Misconduct of Judge Martha Walsh-Hood

Dear Chairman Klonick:

This communication will supplement a formal complaint submitted on December 24, 2009 regarding judicial misconduct of Onondaga County Supreme Court Judge Martha Walsh-Hood in my domestic relations proceedings. Previously I supplied you with a copy of my “Petition Charging Diverse Human Rights Violations” which has since been filed with the United Nations in Geneva, Switzerland.

Judge Walsh is included among the judges featured in the representative cases described in the United Nations petition. The thread which links these cases is the anti-father prejudice which pervades domestic relations proceedings in the State of New York, and more particularly, the barbaric “custody” process which removes innocent children from their natural parents.


Before turning to the serious misconduct practiced by Judge Walsh-Hood, some background will enable you to deliberate upon my formal complaint with a greater sense of awareness of both the overriding misconduct (gender prejudice) and the particular abuses of power executed by Judge Walsh-Hood (specific ethical code violations). We begin with Judicial Canon 3(B) (4) which

Commission Complaint Page two


(B) (4) A judge shall perform judicial duties without bias or prejudice against or in favor of any person. A judge in the performance of judicial duties shall not, by words or conduct, manifest bias or prejudice, including but not limited to bias or prejudice based upon age, race, creed, color, sex, sexual orientation, religion, national origin, disability, marital status or socioeconomic status, and shall require staff, court officials and others subject to the judge’s direction and control to refrain from such words or conduct.

In the 2006 Matrimonial Commission Report to the Chief Justice (the Miller Report), widespread problems were acknowledged in the domestic relations courts of New York, including the manner in which sensitive and private family matters were “shoe-horned” into an antiquated and oppositional framework for deciding childrearing controversies. Phrases such as “visitation” and “custody” were assailed and even recommended for discontinuance; see also Webster v. Ryan, 189 Misc. 2d 86 (Albany Co. Family Court, 2001).

Remarkably, no mention was made in that report of the vast gender disparities in “custody” and support “awards” entered in these same courts as routinely reported by the U.S. Census Bureau and other agencies. The 2006 Commission did, however, disclose the results of a confidential survey of matrimonial judges. This survey revealed an alarming opinion that domestic relations cases were considered “punishment assignments”. The census and matrimonial reports, read together, suggested the existence of a subclass of litigants dominated by fathers who were denied fair and respectful treatment in the unified court system of this state.

Four years later, the problem identified by the commission report was observed in flaming fashion in my own case by way of the opening remarks and conduct of Acting Family Court (Supreme Court) Judge Michael Daley who is named along with Judge Walsh-Hood here. Specifically, Judge Daley opened deliberations on my “confirmation” hearing of May 26, 2009 with rude, abusive and injudicious remarks typical of my treatment throughout four years of child-taking processes:

My name is Mike Daley; the Judge who has been assigned to preside over this matter, for God only knows what. I don’t know why it came to me; but, it did. There is, as I speak, been an order to show cause filed…it is a motion for me to recuse myself. I have yet to get through all of it. Some of it is bewildering to me. I don’t know beyond that but, it has to be dealt with at some point.

Despite repeat promises throughout the May 26, 2009 teleconference to provide me with a lower magistrate hearing transcript and an opportunity to be heard on my recusal motion and objections, neither was facilitated prior to a violation order filed on October 1, 2009. In the

Commission Complaint Page three

process, Judge Daley overlooked a history of prior disqualifications or transfers involving himself on my represented and personal cases. This enabled him to abuse his office, outside of a normal assignment order in Herkimer County Family Court, to issue the violation order that triggered the mandatory summary process for suspending my professional license.

The above emphasized remarks, classifications, statistics and prejudice support the conclusion that rampant deviations from of the Judicial Code of ethics are occurring in our domestic relations courts on a daily basis. As relevant to my representative case here, Judicial Canons 3(B) (3) and 3(B) (6) are reprinted as follows:

(B) (3) A judge shall be patient, dignified, and courteous to litigants, jurors, witnesses, lawyers, and others with whom the judge deals in an official capacity, and shall require similar conduct of lawyers, and of staff, court officials, and others subject to the judge's direction and control.

(B) (6) A judge shall accord to every person who has legal interest in a proceeding, or that person’s lawyer, the right to be heard according to law. A judge shall not initiate, permit, or consider ex parte communications, or consider other communications made to the judge outside the presence of the parties or their lawyers concerning a pending or impending proceeding.

In at least one of my client matters, People v. Carol Hall (2005), Judge Daley recused himself on a controversial case after a motion was necessitated by his prosecutorial bias and plea pressure tactics. My client was ultimately found not guilty on all counts of a six count indictment before a substitute judge and jury. At the conclusion of recusal proceedings, transcripts and affidavits show the same judge promising to transfer the case to a preferred judge who would be appraised of my so-called “histrionics” during a successful defense process. Judge Daley possessed no such authority and his preferred Herkimer County colleague was never assigned.

Such ex parte communications constitute clear violations of judicial ethics, but more than that, they corroborate the unlawful influence which judges wield over attorney livelihood and professional standing in the community, see Matter of Spargo, 23AD3d 808 (3d Dept. 2005). An investigation is needed to properly discern the nature of any related ex parte communications on my child-taking processes between Judge Daley, the actual Herkimer County Family Court judge, its magistrate G. Stephen Getman a/k/a George Getman, Judge Walsh-Hood and Fifth District Administrative Judge James Tormey.

The Daley remarks are reproduced in an Article 78 action presently pending at the Appellate Division level against the same two judges featured here; see exhibit A of United Nations petition and distinct submission on the subject of Michael Daley. A separate action in another court, under seal, sets forth additional violations and plenary petitions for relief, however, these forums are beset by jurisdictional constraints and they do not possess the appropriate capacity for addressing judicial ethics.

The general and specific misconduct depicted here cannot be properly evaluated without a reading of an illustrative opinion rendered by the high court of New York in David F. Jung, 11 NY3d 365 (2008). A Family Court Judge was removed from the bench for misconduct which pales in comparison to the diverse range of constitutional violations committed by Judges Daley and Walsh-Hood as described in the separate court proceedings. On the narrow constitutional issue in Jung (right to counsel), the Court of Appeals had this to say in the context of fundamental parenting liberties:

The right to be heard is fundamental to our system of justice (citations omitted


control of their children (see Stanley v. Illinois, 405 US 645 (1972); Jones v. Berman, 37 NY 2d 42, 55 (1975).

This right is no less vital to a proceeding for summary

Parents have an equally fundamental interest in the liberty, care and

Three years of predictable controversies over money (“child support”) between my first parenting petition and the “custody” decision annexed is a per se violation of any “meaningful” time requirement under our Constitution. This is especially the case in the context of daily developing children. As well, the manner requirement was violated repeatedly over the same period by the 18 trial judges assigned to my petitions and their disregard of parenting petitions in favor of money petitions.

Certain of these 18 judges never bothered to read my petitions altogether due, in part, to the overburdened nature of our domestic relations courts. In an insatiable quest to secure increased incentive payments from the federal government under Title IV-D of the Social Security Act and interest revenues off of these expedited and mass produced “child support” orders, the state has

overloaded its court dockets to the point where parenting petitions are factually not being heard

in any meaningful manner.

A representative case is found in my United Nations petition on the test case involving Alan

Cady. A Family Court support magistrate was found to have carried over figures, findings and default rulings from another irrelevant father case to the contested post trial Cady decision, patently disclosing the reckless and dishonest manner in which these “support awards” are

Commission Complaint Page five

massed produced. As explained in the petition, Mr. Cady is now facing a recommended sentence of incarceration by the same magistrate, held over his head since December, 2008.

In my case, similar recklessness reared itself on the opening day of “custody” proceedings in July, 2009. Judge Walsh-Hood was called to task on a June, 2009 letter in which she expressly denied an April show cause motion that had already been signed by a prior judge. She then failed to address a June motion for parenting relief which comprised a critical prerequisite to the custody proceedings one month later. It was evident that she had not read either motion as well as an April 7, 2009 petition filed by the adversary parent addressed the same day. In a clear showing of gender and political prejudice, Judge Walsh-Hood actually came prepared to litigate the mother’s support related show cause petition seeking supervised “visitation” which, on its face, had neither been signed nor served upon any party.

Apart from the logical frustration which this gross lack of preparedness would produce to same day deliberations (my adjournment request was also denied), the embarrassment which Judge Walsh-Hood brought upon herself was then turned against me in retaliation. I was essentially blamed for my proper and necessary efforts to educate Walsh-Hood to the case she was assigned and purporting to preside over. I will address this retaliation shortly.

Elsewhere at the concluding paragraph of the Jung opinion, the Court of Appeals stated:

“It is apparent from the record as a whole that (Jung) continues to believe that his actions were a permissible exercise of the “wide discretion” given Family Court Justices “for dealing with the complexities of family life.” He fails to grasp that with such discretion comes grave responsibilities to the litigants before him as well as their children…We conclude that (the Judge’s) steadfast adherence to longstanding policies that have seriously compromised the due process rights of litigants justifies removal.

Longstanding father prejudice and neglect of important responsibilities in these so-called “punishment assignments” remain the unwritten judicial policy and practice in this state. However, the formal complaint now before this commission asserts much more in the way of fundamental rights, public policy concerns and the proper functioning of our court system. It implicates a right to raise children to become responsible adults free from government intrusions and retaliation upon the exercise of other fundamental rights. Such additional rights in the parenting context are central to a civilized society. They derive jointly from a time immemorial.

Commission Complaint Page six


When I took up the cause for parenting equity in our courts of law, I was warned by prominent lawyers in central New York that it would jeopardize my license to practice law and my preexisting “joint custody” rights with my children. In one such private unsolicited exchange, I posed the question whether an attorney’s children or his law license constituted the higher priority in life, and he promptly announced the latter.

At the time of this attorney’s forewarning, he was unaware of disciplinary processes already instituted against me for the first time in my 23 year unblemished career. My children have since been seized from me by Walsh-Hood. On a national radio program in 2008, I was similarly forewarned by a talk show host in Massachusetts who cited a lawyer in that state, disbarred within one year, simply because of his involvement in a similar cause.

Applied here, issue was raised against me during the July, 2009 “custody” trial regarding my guest speaker appearance before an audience of parents at a national fathers’ rights convention in Washington D.C. (summer, 2008). Unrelated websites featured my children running from the audience to cling to their daddy in a manner I could not control. The scene was heartwarming and particularly obstructive to feminist ideology of the kind championed by Walsh-Hood.

The Director of the National League of Fathers, Inc., present during that same convention, testified on my behalf and was similarly exploited to result in the “custody” decision that I am now bringing to this commission. Before turning to the specifics of that decision, it is crucial to note that my rights can never be properly heard in a court that functions in the above summarized fashion. This treatment of me, however, is representative of countless other mainstream fathers.

The far reaching aspect of this complaint is illustrated further by studies and expert reports generated over the past two decades. Their contents document the assault upon fatherhood as the prevailing cause behind our nation’s vast decline in productivity and corresponding increase in social and health care costs. Professor Stephen Baskerville of Howard University presents an alarming report on government’s absorption with the symptoms and not the root of this problem. He opens discussion as follows:

During the past decade, family issues such as marriage and fatherhood have rocketed to the top of the domestic-policy agenda. The past two presidential administrations, along with numerous local governments, have responded to the continuing crisis of the family by devising measures to involve governmental machinery directly in the management of what had previously been considered private family life. The Bush administration has proposed $300 million annually to “promote responsible fatherhood” and for federal promotion of

Commission Complaint Page seven

“healthy marriages.” Earlier, President Bill Clinton created a “Presidential Fatherhood Initiative,” and Vice President Al Gore chaired a federal staff conference on “nurturing fatherhood.” Congress has established bipartisan task forces on fatherhood promotion and issued a resolution affirming the importance of fathers. Almost 80 percent of the respondents to a 1996 Gallup poll saw fatherhood as the most serious social problem today (NCF 1996).

A generation of fatherhood advocates has emerged who insist that fatherlessness is the most critical social issue of our time. In Fatherless America, David Blankenhorn calls the crisis of fatherless children “the most destructive trend of our generation” 1995, 1). Their case is powerful. Virtually every major social pathology has been linked to fatherless children: violent crime, drug and alcohol abuse, truancy, unwed pregnancy, suicide, and psychological disorders—all correlating more strongly with fatherlessness than with any other single factor, surpassing even race and poverty. The majority of prisoners, juvenile detention inmates, high school dropouts, pregnant teenagers, adolescent murderers, and rapists come from fatherless homes (Daniels 1998, passim).

Children from affluent but broken families are much more likely to get into trouble than children from poor but intact ones, and white children from separated families are at higher risk than black children in intact families (McLanahan 1998, 88). The connection between single-parent households and crime is so strong that controlling for this factor erases the relationship between race and crime as well as between low income and crime (Kamarck and Galston 1990, 14).

see Independence Review, VIII, n.4, Spring, 2004, pp 485 – 486.

Notwithstanding the similar discussion and good faith cause undertaken by at least three NLF members testifying at my July 2009 hearing and their compelling corroboration of model father- daughter relationships, a far more alarming decision was finally received on my “custody” petition on January 25, 2010. This remedy was first sought in November 2006 as a necessary by-product of dysfunctional state intrusions into a previously functioning separation agreement arranged exclusively by the parents. Numerous parenting enforcement motions were denied or ignored over ensuing years while my children developed irretrievably with each passing day. Retaliation of this kind is not subject to judicial immunity from Constitutional relief, see Supreme Court of Virginia v Consumers Union, 446 US 719 (1980); Beechwood Restorative Care Center. v Leeds, 436 F. 3d 147 (2d. Cir. 2006); Friedle v New York, 210 F. 3d 79 (2d. Cir 2000) (prisoner convict denied First Amendment right of access to courts by retaliation).

Commission Complaint Page eight

A copy of the retaliatory decision, dated January 22, 2010, is annexed under exhibit A along with

a copy of an interim order of October 28, 2009 which will be employed to verify the unethical, punitive and gender-biased behavior of Martha Walsh-Hood. The October order vacated an ex parte order of July 28, 2009 which restrained me from contact with the mother (and therefore my children). The terms of the July order were vague and designed to elicit a “violation by ambush” through its mailing on the same day as my court ordered make-up “visitation”, both of which emerged from trial the prior week.

Resumed parenting periods were then endeavored and deprived during the month of November, 2009, ultimately resulting in a November 23, 2009 order by the same Judge Walsh-Hood which again denied my parenting enforcement petitions and reinstated the original July, 2009 restraint order. Joint custody was suspended and eventually terminated. The only substantive event occurring between these July and November orders was the filing and service of my federal court lawsuit against this judge.

The parenting deprivation was continued one month later when a second (Article 78) action was filed and served upon Walsh-Hood. My holiday petition was denied at a summary hearing held on December 22, 2009. Then, magically, unrestricted parenting time was reinstated under the terms of the January 22, 2010 “custody” decision annexed. The punitive nature of this reduced parenting time decision will be addressed shortly. There is simply no rational explanation for this Jeckle-Hyde decisionmaking process which permanently and irrevocably harmed two

innocent little girls. Included with this supplement is a copy of a greeting card published on Christmas Day which comprised the only effective form of communication safely made available

to me at the time.

Logically and circumstantially, the “custody” decision, as a whole, comprised a retaliatory assault upon my public cause taken on behalf of aggrieved parents as well as positions rightfully taken during the course of my domestic relations case. It had absolutely nothing to do with a court of law acting in the best interests of my children or anyone other than Walsh-Hood for that matter. This vindictive and out-of-control jurist violated numerous code provisions, including the very overriding principle of Canon One:

A judge shall uphold the integrity and independence of the judiciary.

An independent and honorable judiciary is indispensable to justice in our society. A judge should participate in establishing, maintaining, and enforcing high standards of conduct, and shall personally observe those standards so that the integrity and independence of the judiciary will be preserved. The provisions of this Code are to be construed and applied to further that objective.

Commission Complaint Page nine


Turning now to the more specific misconduct, I have appended an excerpt from my December 2009 Appellate Division show cause order under exhibit B, previously supplied to this commission, for a rendition of widespread ethical misconduct of Judge Walsh-Hood during the July 2009 “custody” proceedings encompassed by her (appended) decision. The preamble to Canon Three provides that a judge shall perform the duties of office “diligently” as well as impartially. Canon Two provides that a judge shall respect and comply with the law.

In this case, Judge Walsh-Hood, hereinafter “Hood”, applied the law in select and self serving fashion as a named defendant in two actions previously filed by me. She employed the “law” as a weapon against the father-litigant and a protective device for the state’s “custodial parent” acting unnecessarily in the statutory role of both mother and father. Various “asides” were added in the text of her public opinion without support or purpose simply to disparage my hard earned 51 year unblemished personal, political and professional reputation. Each distinct aspect of that reputation came under fire during the highly exploited “custody” hearing over a four day period.

Only a few illustrations are in order. At two separate locations of a 14 page decision, Ms. Hood renders an aside to the effect that my parental “fitness is questionable and could be more properly accessed xxxxxx ”, see i.e., pg 8. Forgetting for the moment her own Jeckle-Hyde deliberations, this libelous assault was obviously asserted by an angry and vindictive decisionmaker whose sole purpose was not to foster the shared parenting arrangements earlier contemplated by the parents (prior to state intrusions) but to discredit my positions and character in the ongoing fathers’ rights cause described throughout my submissions. It is a government tactic not uncommon to civil rights movements, but in this case, children were exploited in a manner reminiscent of fascist regimes and underworld figures.

Appended to my December, 2009 show cause motion already in the commission’s possession (under exhibit B) is an affidavit from an off duty Oneida County Sheriff employee who witnessed the custodial mother’s physical assault upon me in October, 2007. This was during a child exchange while I was retreating defensively into my home. The attack was triggered by my unyielding rejection of the mother’s agenda to have me give up my children to a wealthy childless paramour in exchange for an end to the state’s oppressive and gender biased support collection process (which she commanded), see page 4 of decision.

The contents of this affidavit were reduced to testimony at my custody hearing, along with the additional evidence of erratic and abusive behavior on the part of the state’s custodial agent. One such additional witness insisted upon a trip from Utica to Syracuse, in a mid-body brace for severe spinal disabilities, against doctor recommendations, to testify about a similar abusive

Commission Complaint Page ten

event at the mother’s home in 2006. Ms. Hood not only failed to address this combined evidence altogether, she refused to allow corroborating testimony from me that was critical to the background behind the mother’s misconduct, including a protection order issued against her as a result of the same October, 2007 event.

In her decision, Ms. Hood references another protection order secured by the mother in 2006, however, the record, if properly read, would have disclosed that this order had been vacated weeks later and that the one she was referencing was actually procured on the mother’s fraudulent petition derived from the October, 2007 event. These actual conflicting and long expired ex parte orders demonstrated the commonly exploited, gender-biased syndrome known as “battered woman”. By misrepresenting the orders actually before her, Ms. Hood was able to dodge the logic that the mother was seeking to distract attention from her assault through a fraudulent race to a Family Court judge only weeks before election day on my prominent (failed) bid for public office.

Other, lesser asides are found sprinkled among the greater disparagements. For example, at the bottom of page 3, Ms. Hood references one of my motions dated July 20, 2009 as “never properly filed” while making no mention of the “improperly filed” and never served show cause application of the mother dated April 7, 2009. As stated, this is the one that Ms. Hood “improperly” sought to litigate on the opening day of the trial. My choice as a “proper” litigant was either to ignore her incompetence or face the wrath now seen in her “custody” decision.


Directing the Commission’s attention now to pages 2-3 of the decision, Ms. Hood identifies at least eight pending petitions filed at various times during the course of our originally “uncontested” divorce action first filed in September, 2005. As the Article 78 exhibit states, there were many more petitions, including at least three incompetently handled by Ms. Hood on the opening day of trial. Her incompetence was directly traceable to the lack of diligence, bias and her failure to read those petitions before hearing the first witness (because the outcome had already been prejudged and decided).

Had Ms. Hood impartially and diligently reviewed the petitions first placed before her in June, 2009, she would have become appraised of four tortuous years of state sponsored child and father abuse processes occurring as a consequence of this insatiable quest for cash. So powerful was the state’s greed that the so-called “custody” case was transformed into yet another financial inquisition into such child quality issues as the cost of playground and playroom improvements at my home dating back to premarital resources. Hood’s interruptions revealed her callous indifference to the wonderful father-child activities occurring there in my standard weekend warrior role.

Commission Complaint Page eleven


mature and impartial judge would not respond to this abusive history with personal renditions


her own private life (i.e. testimony interruptions of late night exigent events as “way past her

bedtime”). An ethical judge would not throw gas upon a forest fire started by the state’s own

intrusions by constraining and demeaning all of my professional petitions and positions by ignoring the logical reaction of a “loving” father, confirmed on pg. 13, who is being systematically deprived of his precious little girls by the use of armed police officers.

A more resourceful judge would recognize that such one-sided abuse by the very courts and

governments that produced the four year controversies would lead naturally to “emotional outbursts”. These exploited outbursts were in reality well restrained when consulting the actual unmolested record and heroic figures exemplified in such blockbuster films as “Ransom” and “Taken”. These films involved kidnapping and child prostitution as the cause for immensely violent and laudable reactions from committed fathers. Such depictions take on a reality dimension when comparing New York’s custodial institution to oppressive government regimes that similarly removed and exploited the “State’s” children for reasons other than money.

I am unable to provide this Commission with a transcript of my four day “custody” proceedings

to verify the misconduct set out in my December 2009 show cause document and this

correspondence. This is because of another “bizarre” aspect of these four year processes. Unlike Family Court, where transcript costs are not born by the parties, Ms. Hood discriminated on account of my marital status by interjecting a pending stenographer bill during my objectionable and reversed “custody” case-in-chief.

I have maintained that this $5,000 bill is, in effect, a filing fee for the “non-custodial” father

through one-sided welfare obligations to the mother, sealed in my case at the time of separation discussions in 2003 (when my second child was still “unborn”). Appended under exhibit C are copies of two letters from Walsh-Hood and her court reporters that show overbilling practices on their face and the $5,000 condition precedent for a father to access our domestic relations courts. Such access is mandatory when the state seizes children and expects their parents to defend them “civilly”.


In both versions of my distinct court actions filed against Judges Hood and Daley last year, at

least one pleading paragraph was devoted to a series of parenting (separation) agreements arranged exclusively between the parents between 2004 and 2006. The actual (unmolested) facts and record of divorce proceedings established this two year time frame as the most successful and incident-free parenting period of the children’s six year existence.

Commission Complaint Page Twelve

Indeed, this commission is able to readily corroborate this crucial fact by resort to all 14 pages of Hood’s decision to find no references to this period. Instead, Ms. Hood focuses all of her venom upon the pre-separation (2002 – 2004) and post-intrusion (2006 – 2009) periods to orchestrate a defamatory public pronouncement. The pleadings describe our several agreements to include phraseology that was foreign to the true parents’ childrearing philosophy (co-parenting transition).

Contrary to this philosophy, the parents were forced by the State of New York to employ phrases such as “joint custody”, “visitation” and “child support”, among others, to disrupt a working arrangement more aptly patterned around rapidly changing circumstances and more accurate domestic-related terms. These included time tested roles such as father and mother, husband and wife, common sense responsibilities and flexible parenting periods, to result in jointly arranged child events. Instead, the foreign phrases induced the empowerment of an easily inflamed superior parent over an oppressed sub-class parent.

These foreign terms are more appropriate to socialist state control objectives such as prison custody and visitation, involuntary institutional confinement and even funeral arrangements. The bizarre incongruity of these state mandated phrases was explained throughout the four year record of the third (contested) period of litigation. All of it fell on deaf ears because any near equal or co-parenting philosophy would negate all justification behind an established custodial framework that lawyers and forensic bureaucrats feed off of.

In the July, 2009 proceedings, Ms. Hood went to painstaking efforts to exclude this core issue from the official record. Testimony and documentary evidence on the subject of our first 2003 separation proposal drafted by the mother “at Mr. Koziol’s request” was rejected, even over my offer of proof, thereby preventing me from exposing a typical gender biased custody tactic known as “battered woman syndrome” (emotional abuse). There is no established counterpart for the male parent coming into the same court system.

This historically abused tactic, coupled with Ms. Hood’s extension of admissible evidence to the remote time frame of the parties’ marriage, consummated the custodial mother’s fraudulent case. Conveniently, during the remote marital period (2002 – 2004), there would be no adult witnesses to refute or corroborate fabricated claims. Clearly the mother here was not seeking to escape any “emotional and verbal abuse” of a marriage developed around “a beautiful four (4) bedroom home situated on two (2) acres of land containing many child oriented improvements”, pg 6 of decision. My genuine unimpaired support of my children is well illustrated by such unrefuted facts.

Contrary to the realities of “joint” childrearing in this case, Ms. Hood drafted her decision to cover up an underlying modern day design of our domestic relations laws to exploit children for money and not their so-called “best interests”. She refused to hear the drafting background (discussions) surrounding our then existing co-parenting transition plans and falsely attributed the signed agreements exclusively to me (because of my lawyer status). She even assaulted the

Commission Complaint Page Thirteen

transition and father preservation terms as “bizarre”, enroute to a conclusion that their overall ambiguities led to parental conflict, see pp 10-11.

Any such conflict cannot begin to compare to the irreconcilable controversy occurring today after four years of dysfunctional state interferences. In 2005, agreements were successfully consummated, preschool events were jointly attended and childrearing time and discussions were liberally shared. Today, mutual “protection orders” have ruled the agenda to the joint destruction of income producing careers and constructive child development.


Another design underlying our domestic relations processes is gender-cleansing of father and mother roles. From the very outset of Hood’s decision, the presentation and conclusions are laced with male prejudice, anti-man stereotypes, irrelevant assaults upon my 51 year unblemished character and professional reputation, and vicious asides designed exclusively to retaliate upon my two prior lawsuits filed against her. In contrast, the state’s “custodial parent” is described as a near perfect machine, successfully performing the singular modern day role of a gender-merged parent. The outsider (father) is then marginalized to non-existence.

This gender cleansing agenda is masked by overbroad and easily exploited standards for deciding “custody” disputes. Most damning is that ever elusive “best interests of the child” criterion evaluated under a “totality of circumstances”, see pages 11 – 12 of decision. After damaging my professional income producing career in every imaginable way, and in every clause and sentence of her so-called “thoughtful consideration” of “factors”, Ms. Hood justifies her misconduct under the following boundless citation to authority:

“The only absolute in the law governing custody of children is that there are no absolutes” (citing Friederwitzer v. Friederwitzer, 55 NY 2d89 (1982) at page 93.

This judicially crafted rule of law, seized from a 30 year old opinion, states clearly that anything goes when fashioning a “custody” decision. There are no power constraints upon such authority once the state takes control over its people’s children. Ms. Hood exploits this wide ranging power to suppress a dissident litigant with politically incorrect views in “her” courtroom. Among her abuses are those found at decision pages 13 – 14 to be addressed presently.

This so-called “standard” is more expansive in scope than the harassment and disorderly conduct statutes typically employed by police and oppressive governments to abuse and punish their subjects. Ms. Hood’s defamatory rendition was fully predictable by her trial conduct, disparate control of the evidence and references to the public nature of this private and sensitive “domestic relations” controversy. The draconian reach of her “asides”, however, could never be anticipated in a properly constrained decision-making environment.

Commission Complaint Page Fourteen

As Ms. Hood well knew, this was not any old controversy. Apart from my prominent political background, she was forced to recognize some of its (bizarre) judicial history on page 3 of her decision with such acknowledgements that this proceeding “lingered for months” (actually 3 ½ years) due to the retirement of “Judge Grow”, several judges’ recusals (some 15 re-assignments altogether), a stay (six weeks) and “several decisions on Appeal by the Appellate Division” (four consolidated decisions proceeding simultaneously with lower court processes other than a six week period).

While ignoring more proximate events between 2005 and 2009 elicited from at least nine diverse witnesses on my behalf, Ms. Hood focused on fraudulently asserted events from the custodial mother’s two exclusive family witnesses. One such event produced the first of three outbursts over the four day hearing which was then exploited to promote a male stereotype of the father as violent, temperamental and unfit to raise children.

Due to the many judge transfer orders, discovery limitations which this caused, and Ms. Hood’s refusal to grant a logical adjournment on our first appearance to properly ferret out petitions and issues for trial, I could not anticipate the vicious fabrications of the custodial tactician. Indeed, between the 2002 birth of my first child and the time of the July, 2009 hearing, there was concededly not a single report or claim of child abuse on my part in any of these numerous petitions. This did not stop the agenda to color my character otherwise.

Logically, then, when the maternal grandparent testified that I had allegedly “hit” my child sometime during our 2002 – 2004 marriage, I promptly stood up and accused her of being a bald- faced liar. She then recanted, explaining that she had not personally observed any such event and the false sworn testimony was immediately stricken from the record. This malicious scheme by the “custodial parent” to use her own reluctant mother to traumatize a loving father should have been reason enough to switch “custody” roles.

Such a switch might have helped reform the predominant 90% composition of women occupying the state’s custodial positions, but such corrective action was never on anyone’s radar screen in this gender biased environment. The illusory custodial role continues to be held ever outward before the male parent until roughly the age of child majority. Conveniently, this promotes endless controversy that extorts hard earned wealth from the parents to irrelevant outside parties. There is no genuine child purpose to this destructive custodial framework.

The journey into our remote marriage caused additional one-sided fodder at pg. 6 of the malicious decision. After minimizing my career expansion to a satellite office in Lake George (with connected apartment used by the mother and children), Ms. Hood states that I “took an eleven day cruise without (my) wife or toddler daughter in April 2003 during defendant’s problem pregnancy”. This “oh-my-gosh” finding produced the intended effect because Ms. Hood constrained my case in the fashion detailed elsewhere, and she failed to include the complete picture involving a man who cared so much for his children that he endured an extra year of career damaging emotional abuse so that the unborn child would not have to suffer future questions of illegitimacy. This endurance and “privacy” issue remained intact for six years until Ms. Hood opened the door, over my vigorous objections, to the pre-separation agreement period.

Believing that she had gotten something otherwise damaging to my professional, personal and political standing, Ms. Hood instead succeeded in ruthlessly damaging my youngest innocent child for the duration of her natural life. This is born out by the ease with which all other perceived injuries to me can be dispensed, beginning with the “oh-my-gosh cruise”.

There were actually two cruises during a “problem pregnancy” that had not become problematic until afterward. Royal Caribbean cruise receipts and itineraries generated exclusively from my hard earned income will verify the first one, during the mother’s schoolteacher vacation period in February, 2003, when the ingrate mother, our “toddler daughter” and (emphasis added) my unborn child accompanied me on a Caribbean cruise. A snow storm and flyer demands jeopardized post 9/11 air flights, hence, I personally drove my family at the last minute to Florida in the “Mercedes” I bought for my wife (referenced in her case). I did so through an unexpected blizzard in Washington D. C. while they slept. We visited family on the return trip.

The second cruise was concededly unknown to her, but the two week excursion was not. It was designed with her full consent to accommodate the search for a winter home for a newly purchased motor yacht. Trial observers will recall the judge’s commentary about the maternal grandfather who resided with his girlfriend on a Caribbean island. We had already obtained a Yacht Club contract at Newport, Rhode Island (near her father and mother residences at the time) after I purchased the yacht in 2002, originally intended for Lake George.

Our goal, one year later, altered to accommodate the pregnancy, was to secure a winter home for the eight sleeper vessel. This goal, under the circumstances, was ideally served by a cruise to numerous islands on my own given the experience of our first cruise with the children one month earlier. The mother knew and accepted the two week search, but not the logical manner of its execution on economic reasons alone. There has never been an allegation that I ever “cheated” on my wife, but her suspicious television viewing character and my deep seeded religious beliefs could never be reconciled without a risky argument.

Commission Complaint Page Sixteen

The insertion of this “oh my gosh” cruise in the “Primary Caretaker” section of Hood’s decision is additionally suspect because, with a second child in the womb, it was physically impossible for me to be a primary caretaker at that time. Indeed, this circumstance backfires upon Hood’s manipulation of the case to support the gender bias claim behind both of my court actions filed against her.


Various words and phrases are set out in quotes throughout this submission to denote what I have long held to be gender biased slurs. The notion that a “child support” order must be entered, as it was here, at the outset of any domestic relations case, even where “support” is not at issue, is a declaration by the state that parents are inherently incompetent to manage their own affairs and that the fathers are presumptively deficient in their money obligations to mothers.

Remarkably, the record of this case establishes that after two years of “child support” deliberations, the first assigned divorce judge was compelled to find in his October 8, 2008 letter decision that I had been overpaying the custodial agent by $200 per month. He then arbitrarily increased the formula finding to the 2005 agreed upon amount to justify the destruction caused in between. This he did contrary to the so-called Child Support Standards Act which is typically exploited to inflame one parent to believe that she/he can endlessly oppress the other parent.

These draconian support orders have no accountability requirement to the child. They are regularly employed toward irrelevant and addicting subjects such as controlled substances, government sponsored gambling and partner maintenance. In my case, it was exploited to pay for lawyers, contributions to my political opponents and, among other things, an extortion device to give up my children. In the “Financial Fitness” section of her decision, Ms. Hood was able to assist the custodial mother’s case by concluding that she “has demonstrated her ability to provide for the financial needs of the children on her own”, thereby negating the rationale for one-sided support (welfare) payments altogether.

What Ms. Hood omits from her slanted rendition on this subject is that I have not only been doing the same thing, and more effectively so, for the same children, but that I have also taken care of the ingrate mother for a period of more than six years without anything in return except the malicious impairments of my income capabilities and parent-child relationships. Ms. Hood concludes that “plaintiff demands all the benefits of parenthood but blatantly disregards his financial responsibility to his children”. What a competent judge would have concluded is that the “defendant demands all of the money it takes to raise children but blatantly disregards her more important human responsibility to foster a meaningful father-daughter relationship”.

Commission Complaint Page Seventeen

This latter statement, of course, assumes that either parent should have such life impacting powers at all. In a presumptive shared arrangement, as opposed to the antiquated power arrangement (presumptive caregiver), neither parent could “tax and destroy” the other parent. Here, the four year record shows unequivocally that the only presumptive and now permanent “custodial parent” abused her state conferred powers over my children to impair, with impunity, my career income producing capacity for child support purposes. Evidence for this is found in the never-produced support magistrate transcript and defective October 1, 2009, violation order issued by Judge Daley.


Related to these processes are the findings concerning my former office manager, Veronica Donahue. Ms. Hood acknowledges her as the person assigned to all of my financial affairs. This was done as a direct consequence of the state’s support collection processes and the mother’s/lawyer’s 2006 frivolous and self-serving accusations of “hiding income.” It triggered the kind of burdensome litigation that the Supreme Court found unconstitutional in the parenting context, see Troxel v Granville, 530 US 57,75 (2000).

Over time, it became apparent that Ms. Donahue, herself a product of multiple transient father figures, had been abusing her assigned trust at my office. Indeed, even the mother at the hearing, referenced one of our earlier conversations to contain my suspicions of money misappropriations. When this was conclusively discovered in November, 2009, I terminated her. At the November 23, 2009 arguments, the mother’s lawyer confirmed Ms. Donahue’s planned extortion agenda behind these misappropriations by damaging my ongoing custody case based upon the mother’s similar and successful design over a prior four year period. The irrefutable timing of my phone call to the District Attorney’s office preceding her responsive calls to the grievance committee and mother’s lawyer established this common design which forced me to choose between my children and my career.

This series of events further demonstrates the damage which prolonged “custody” and “support” processes bring to our productivity as a nation (related elsewhere in this submission). I could not hope to effectively manage a small civil rights practice as I successfully did over a prior twenty year period while addressing all litigation burdens described in the show cause exhibit A (Article 78 petition). Ignoring all of the logical consequential exigencies, Ms. Hood focused upon Ms. Donahue as a poor substitute for a periodic office babysitter due to a concession that she had “hit” one of my children during a brief absence on my part. In the process, she omits all surrounding facts which delimit this “hit” as a pat on the behind when my daughter had misbehaved and placed herself at risk of injury. Rest assured, I would not and never will tolerate anyone “hitting” my children anymore than I did when scratches were discovered on my daughter’s face in 2006 while in the care of the mother.

Commission Complaint Page Eighteen

At first, Ms. Donahue lied to me about this incident after it was later first brought to my attention by the mother. Like her own custodial imperfections, I required time to complete a proper inquiry with two office staff present during the incident. This inquiry was further complicated by a sworn affidavit of the mother filed in May, 2009, which related three separate dates of alleged “hitting” by Ms. Donahue including one when she was physically out of state and another occurring on April 31, 2008 (no such calendar date). In any event, I never called my daughter a liar unlike her two adult counterparts in this conflicting arena of parental decision making. Absent from the record is the mother’s employment of a marijuana abusing 16 year old babysitter, all of which would be unnecessary in a properly enforced shared parenting environment that Ms. Hood evidently detested for feminist reasons.


The Hood decision possesses numerous punctuation, possessive and grammatical errors throughout, see i.e. pg 5, 3 rd line, (parties petitions) compared to correct use of possessives in line 22 (parties’ two children); missing commas, passim, i.e. lines 7 and 19, incorrect punctuation contained at pg 6, line 2 and inconsistent use of possessives at pg 8, lines 2 and 8 (childrens’ schooling). Errors were even found among references to the court itself at line 10 (courts impression); seen also on pg 11, line 3 (missing comma); pg 12, line 13 (both parties testimony) correctly presented at line 16 (parties’ Separation Agreement) but with additional errors in punctuation and improper use of capital letters.

These rampant errors are coupled with the judge’s misrepresentation of basic facts, i.e. defendant employed by “Herkimer Central Schools” (she never left Frankfort) and she “attended Syracuse University” (she attended Utica College after a failed effort at the University of Connecticut and prior to a failed effort toward law school). Together with her false and horrid references to an actual record, the published January 22, 2010 decision further demonstrates not only the reckless and unprofessional manner in which these “punishment assignments” are handled, but it also discloses a growing problem among our grammar school graduates.

Ms. Hawse-Koziol, a high school teacher, is lauded for her use of e-mails, pg 8, but if they are the same versions actually received, the record will illuminate why a “teacher education” program would benefit the case far more than a “parent education” order will for my children. For our tax dollars, the public deserves much better than what this decision has to offer in our esteemed halls of justice bearing a “Supreme Court” letterhead. When I was my children’s (correctly presented) age, I feared my father’s demeanor for reasons that enabled me to learn the English language.

Commission Complaint Page Nineteen


Ms. Hood employs the standard reckless process which removes good fathers from their children’s lives while empowering bad mothers to the heights of parental unfitness. As maintained throughout my arguments, this process elevates the “child business”, as one Family Court put it, to a multi-billion dollar industry. The American workforce is spending as much time and resources in these “Kangaroo Courts” as Supreme Court Justice Abe Fortas once put it (In re Gault, 387 US 1, 27-28 (1968) as they are teaching their children the ABC’s.

Any mother who would stand before a child support (money) magistrate and demand the imprisonment of a good father in exchange for cash and access to his children is a per se unfit parent. This is particularly the case where, as here, Judge Walsh-Hood found Hawse-Koziol to be fully capable of financially supporting the same children that she has sought to completely dominate at any cost. Ms. Hood vigorously suppressed any petitions or evidence tending to expose this crime against humanity.

As my Article 78 exhibit aptly summarizes, the malicious and systematic reduction of already limited parenting time accorded to the gender prejudiced (sub-class) parent over a period of four years yields a so-called “custody” hearing which is inherently flawed and a “custody” decision that comprises a damaging, costly and foregone conclusion. Unless the presumptive dominant parent is found to have abandoned, abused or waived her “custody” rights, a good father is easily foreclosed from his children’s lives by a vindictive mother like Kelly Hawse.

No amount of logic, persistence, patience, petitions, courtesies, temper or “fitness” will overcome such an agenda. Walsh-Hood’s complicity in this agenda is additionally illustrated by her statements at page 11. “Over the course of time (missing comma), both parties changed times, took make up time (missing hyphen), took holiday time away from the other (missing comma) all in violation of the terms of their agreement and judgment”, she states. It should be noted that whatever her problems with our agreements, a prior Supreme Court judge found the same acceptable enough to incorporate into that “judgment” on September 17, 2007.

The quoted statement might be overlooked had the case involved near equal parenting time in a co-parenting environment. However, here, everyone knew the opposite. Assuming we can all agree with the whitewashing of mutual deprivations, the result possesses a chasmic distinction. By the time of our “custody” trial in July, 2009, the “presumptive custodial parent” had regularly reduced my time to an average of five or six days per month while seizing the lion’s share of childrearing periods.

As stated, this unchecked child deprivation process was designed to exploit a “custody” tactic made available to the mother by the state at the time of her own birth. Ms. Hood understood the overriding gender bias completely, however, in an endeavor to stomp it out, she provided the public with an elementary and fraudulent picture. A weekend or vacation week unilaterally

Commission Complaint Page Twenty

taken by the mother (without enforced recourse sought repeatedly by the father) is not the same as the reverse.

In my case, it was undisputed that entire vacation weeks, weekends and overnights were taken without make-up of any kind. A day taken on a Monday of the 2009 Fourth of July weekend is not a make-up day for the mother involving a holiday that happened to fall last year on a Saturday. Yet Ms. Hood made the reckless tit-for-tat conclusion anyway, thereby demonstrating her utter lack of competency in such crucial decision making processes.

So brazen was the abuse of state conferred powers upon the joint assailants Hood, Hawse and Koslosky (so-called “attorney for the child”) that an entire weekend was actually seized from the father on the eve of trial itself (the only participant in these processes wholly devoid of state- conferred authority). On the first day of trial, I endeavored to seek immediate remedial action and an adjournment to facilitate some measure of parenting offset to my opponent’s increasingly dominant period. Ms. Hood would hear none of it, even accusing me of trying to influence the children.

The record will otherwise unequivocally show that for every petition or motion endeavored on my part to secure even the minimal periods of parenting time accorded me by agreement and court order, there was a direct punitive response, no matter how professionally and respectfully I executed it. Even Judge Daley, a person with growing dislike of me as an aggressive civil rights attorney, felt compelled to state in the May 26, 2009 record that he had always known me to be courteous and respectful to the court. Still, only one hour later, he ordered a Herkimer County Sheriff patrol to my girlfriend’s place of business to investigate her whereabouts, all contrary to a judicial role, proper notice and logical reason. Talk about “harassment for no legitimate purpose”.

Similarly, early in the custody hearing, I respectfully brought to Ms. Hood’s attention the harassment reported to me by two of my witnesses in a waiting area regarding a paid security officer. This man had evidently been vocalizing loudly some kind of point scorecard of deliberations in their presence. Such incompetent and irrelevant announcements were sufficiently intimidating and aggravating to cause the victim’s report. Instead of controlling this harassment by court personnel consistent with earlier cited Canons of Judicial Ethics, Ms. Hood justified it based upon my earlier day outburst related to the maternal grandmother’s perjured testimony.

Commission Complaint Page Twenty One



the event that I ever receive the trial record which I have long paid for, I will be in a position


cite incident after incident, only partially depicted in my December, 2009 show cause motion,

which demonstrates the malicious fashion in which my most basic rights were violated as a father and human being. An honest view of my gender disability in such processes and the resourcefulness of my many responses lead to the correct legal (constitutional) and moral conclusion that the time has come for fathers to assume a more respected role in society.

Such resourcefulness is well demonstrated by my response to the earliest parenting periods denied to me in 2006. For example, when Halloween was constrained to 90 early day minutes (back of the bus analogy), I responded the following year with a weekend trick-or-treat routine and party for my girls’ preschool friends around my “beautiful two acre property”. This was also done to avoid humiliating and costly visits to the courthouse and escalating arguments with the mother.

A two weekend dad does not possess the luxury of altering schedules to accommodate child

activities in the face of an unyielding dominant (use it or lose it) parent. Ms. Hood demeaned all

of my resourcefulness with her regular impatience, insults and irrelevant interruptions. Unless

she walked in my shoes, she could not hope to enter an informed decision, and she exhibited no desire to learn anything despite her incompetence as an appointed God over my children (relatively more fit parent?). She knew nothing about my private child rearing experiences and could not be trusted to learn more at our combined expense. This conclusion is wholly vindicated by Hood’s 14 page decision and my own decision not to call my girlfriend to the witness stand.

Despite all of the increasingly arbitrary and unremedied impositions and constraints upon my parenting role over a period of years, all patterned around money and envy, Ms. Hood decided to fabricate a vicious disparagement surrounding my diverse activities with the girls. Ignoring a framed photograph of my children (entered into evidence) following a campaign event in 2007, she audaciously proclaimed with “emphasis” that I engage my children in such activities only for my benefit, i.e. political interests, see pgs 8-9. The picture shows my happy children in a group photograph with parade clowns, family related to a campaign volunteer. Testifying witnesses described the girls’ ecstatic routine of throwing candy to sidewalk bystanders and getting free rides and refreshments at the field day amusement areas thereafter.

The same Hood insults could be hurled against all the other prominent candidates who similarly “engaged” their own children and families in the same events. Our very President of the United States would find himself victim to the Hood version of custodial evaluations if he ever became unfortunate enough to divorce in New York State.

Commission Complaint Page Twenty Two

I do not involve my children in such events simply so that they can emulate me, although this is certainly not a bad thing in my case given the many single mothers seeking such role models every day. Even Ms. Hood knows this given her own campaign for judgeship; but to use my children as a tool against any future political aspirations of their father, including a Fifth District Supreme Court judgeship recommended by a retired Justice in 2006, is well beyond her scope. Some 25,000 voters in Oneida County might agree. On this assault, Ms. Hood simply imploded with such jealously and insecurity that placed her in a sisterhood with Kelly Hawse and nothing more.

Parental emulation and career influences are central to any productive childrearing process. In fact, the lack of such elements is regularly identified as cause for child dysfunction later in life. As applied here, my career was exploited for the mother and children’s benefit through the many traffic tickets and fender benders that I took care of without adverse consequences or professional fee (in the trial record). Not only does my reputation, advanced through healthy child interactions, benefit financial support, Ms. Hawse valued it sufficiently to demand payment in exchange for my request to have her revert to maiden identity.


On July 28, 2009 Judge Walsh-Hood issued an ex parte order which deprived me of all reasonable contact with my children. On November 23, 2009, I learned the reason for this order directly. Ms. Hood was essentially punishing me for my demeanor at the July hearing and nothing else. In her decision, she confirmed this by citing comments made “in a very loud tone of voice” while I was exiting the courtroom. Those comments are reprinted at page 7 of the decision, but conveniently excluded are the oppressive processes over four years, abusive treatment over four days at the July hearing and the words selectively omitted from those same comments on the last day.

After tolerating all that a good citizen should have to under a civilized government, I announced my surrender to the custodial process because of its design for removing innocent children from their natural parents (which includes the former functioning “mother” here). Everything leading up to those comments supported this conclusion. My departure was further made imminent in order to avoid a certain contempt of court consequence.

Yet in all of my so-called “temper” exhibitions, there was not a single threat made to anyone. The trial record will actually demonstrate my remarkable restraint under these barbaric circumstances. In 23 years as a lawyer, I have never been cited for anything despite much louder arguments with diverse counsel. I have experienced litigant parents convicted of heinous crimes with prison terms receiving more unrestricted parenting time than the “sentence” accorded me by Walsh-Hood. We turn now to that sentence in her final order.

Commission Complaint Page Twenty Three


After arranging my parenting time with no logical consistency or child purpose over a six month period (all of which is too burdensome to explain here), Judge Walsh-Hood “awarded” me “visitation” for several hours on two Saturdays and Sundays per month in her January 22, 2010 decision. Three (reduced) hours were “awarded” for two Thursdays with no overnights. Miraculously vanquished was the supervised public venue offered for the holiday period in December, 2009 (common to child abusers and dangerous convicts). Collectively, this Jeckle- Hyde abuse of my children and their father was orchestrated simply to suppress my parenting petitions, logical human demeanor and love of my children.

I came to my government courts seeking more parenting time, and after four years of abuse, I ended up with far less. Not all of this result was accomplished by Walsh-Hood. Hawse-Koziol registered one of many extortionist custody tactics in September, 2006 when she threatened to file a fraudulent protection order in the event I continued to visit my daughters at preschool. This was in clear retaliation upon the discovery of a new girlfriend and her child in my life at the time. It also explains the dearth in school involvement emphasized without explanation (or offsetting “aside”) in the decision.

Today, overnight deprivations have been instituted not because of “some fear” by the children, (pg 10 of decision) but because of a feminist style jealousy over the lovely woman who has resided with me for the past two years. Present on all days of my July “custody” proceedings and the November 23, 2009 motion arguments (when the mother was cautioned by the court in her presence to cease the jealousies), this woman is the only third party to show such commitment. Until the time of Hood’s intervention, the children enjoyed her bonding and presence beyond the comprehension of anyone reading this submission today. The punishment, therefore, inflicted by Ms. Hood was not only directed to me, it was directed to many others in addition to the innocent “toddlers”.

Unfortunately, for all of the good people involved, the Walsh-Hood decision is so plagued with reckless and incompatible provisions that its utility is nonexistent. Functionally speaking, it comprises a “stay-away” order between father and daughter for the balance of our useful lives. The reward it has bestowed upon a perjurer, extortionist and physically abusive mother can only encourage more of the same in the event I seek to re-engage myself in my children’s lives (which is their right too).

As drafted, the Hood decision now precludes all of the Christmas boat parades, play ground gatherings, and beach activities described in the hearing transcript which Hood periodically insulted and then selectively excluded from publication. Overnight prohibition prevents proper parental bonding, bedtime prayers, and weekend excursions to exciting places. Its undeniable true purpose is to crush the father’s developing family unit out of pure feminist-style jealousy over my girlfriend and to solidify the status quo behind the state’s custodial institution of child rearing.

Commission Complaint Page Twenty Four

For his part, the so-called “attorney-for-the-child” exhibited the same vindictive behavior too extensive to present here. This lawyer must be held accountable for serious malpractice to his so-called clients. Third party communications, long denied to me as a way of avoiding the mother’s set-up tactics (hence the telephone hang-ups), cannot be accommodated by any third party today, and this “parent education” program is altogether pathetic. It is exclusively punitive to the father and, if honored, would only cause the custodial parent to further alienate the children from their daddy. Its imposition is otherwise contrary to law, the Constitution and my natural rights as a perfectly fit male parent. I will not be feminized in an environment reminiscent of Nazi re-education camps.

In short, there is no one more qualified to father my children. Ms. Hood does not know them, and she is utterly incompetent to decide their fate. I will not legitimize Ms. Hood, Koslosky, Hawse-Koziol, any paramours or self appointed “specialist” as my children’s substitute father. After indulging herself with a 14 page assault upon my dignity as the only father for these children, Ms. Hood managed the audacity to state at the conclusion of her decision that “visitation (slur) is a joint right of non-custodial parent (slur) and the children which should be regular and frequent so as to promote, enhance and continue any safe and nurturing (slur) relationship…” The only purpose behind this Jeckle-Hyde conclusion is the justification of a never ending stream of money payments to state and third parties from a terminated father.

Commission Complaint Page Twenty Five


The date of this submission is my eldest daughter’s birthday. I greeted her into this world on February 8, 2002, played hide-and-seek with her before that time on the sonogram, and I have had her on my mind every day since. The same applies to child B whose distinct identity is obscured by the decision for other insidious “custody” reasons.

Among the scorecard points of custodial decision making employed here was the arbitrary sibling unity principle. Walsh-Hood and Hawse-Koziol were able to exploit the custody institution preserving tactic by excluding my pertinent 2002-2004 testimony and enabling the latter to exploit her “battered woman” fantasy that child B has never really been a part of my life (literally a thousand witnesses would disagree).

Nowhere in Hood’s “thoughtful consideration” (pg. 5) of my children is provision made for child B or child A’s unique birthdays. Nowhere in the so-called “Lincoln” hearing was the children’s plea for repeat celebrations heard. Nowhere is there any advocacy from this state-appointed attorney. And in this single blatant birthday omission, a conclusive case is made for the barbaric and gender biased dysfunction which defines New York’s custodial institution of childrearing. Child birth is uniquely a woman’s privacy decision of which a man plays no part.
