At Lamoreaux, domestic violence victim are effectively sentenced to death
The Lamoreax Injustice Center is a black abyss in which little or no justice takes place. The most tragic victims are women who have escaped domestic violence only to be sentenced to death by Judge James Waltz.
You may be entitled to a restraining order if your batterer knocks your teeth out or slashes you with a knife. The restraining order is the last right you will have at Lamoreaux.
Lamoreaux's restraining orders are never ever enforced. Violators are allowed to harm or kill their victims at will.
Divorce restraints also don't matter. Judges refuse to punish offenders for violations. Sometimes they issue orders encouraging husbands to violate restraints.
Batterers may dispose of property and cancel health, car and life insurance policies as long as the Judge is a Lamoreaux judge. Often insurance is canceled while the victims are being treated for their domestic violence injuries.
Today I saw a tragedy that could have come out of Shakespeare.. A woman eloquently begged the court to let her have her health insurance back because of her critical heart condition. The judge coldly told her not to be emotional. He considered the use of the word heart emotional.. She said something about her utilities being cut this week. She begged the court for an attorney to speak for her. Her husband's attorney objected that the wife didn't need an attorney. The judge deferred to the husband's attorney. The judge looked like he were about to throw the heart patient into jail for asking for her insurance back.
The woman and her friends left the courtroom conversing about how her batterer was earning six figures and she was starving and likely to die before her support request was heard. They indicated she had been waiting close to a year to get support from her rich batterer.
The law contains provisions for support and attorneys fees. Canceling insurance is a violation of law. The woman was totally screwed and the judge let it happen. People in the courtroom were sympathetic. None of the attorneys stood up to offer their assistance. One or two may have spoken to her later.
You have to wonder what turned Judge Waltz's heart so icy to the plight of domestic violence victims. It takes a certain amount of coldness to let an abuse victim go to her death as her husband profits in six figures from the abuse.
A man was outside snickering.. He may have been the husband. He didn't need to kill his wife. The judge may have done it for him.
The husband's attorney got a continuance. Postponing the hearing until the wife dies is one way of getting out of paying support.
