Collective Complaints to Judicial Ethical Commissions
Project to Get Ethical Commissions to Censure or Remove Judges Who Cover Up Child Sexual Assault
There are only two ways to hold judges accountable (besides going public):
1. Appellate Courts for legal and procedural violations
2. Ethical Commissions for ethical violations
Appellate Courts almost always side with the abuser using the broad discretionary standard bequeathed to family court judges. In the rare case that they side with the protective parent, they normally just send it back to the trial court where the judge continues to grant custody to the abuser.
That leaves the Ethical Commissions to put a stop to judges endangering children. They can discipline, censure or remove judges for unethical conduct. It is unethical to cover up sexual abuse, so Safe Kids International is organizing a mass complaint to ethical commissions all over the world. Although thousands of protective mothers have submitted complaints to no avail thus far, hopefully by doing this collectively and identifying the similar tactics the judges are using to cover up abuse, it will make a difference. If they do not take action, then we will hold the commissions accountable for participating in the cover up.
Safe Kids has written up an outline with details of what a litigant or citizen can use in their complaint. This is only a guide and we are open to suggestions. There is also a template which shows the form in which you should make your complaint for ease of use by Safe Kids and the judicial commission. You should have evidence (i.e. transcripts, minute orders, witnesses, etc.) to back up what you claim. An example of a letter is provided below.
Once you finish this, send it to SafeKidsIntl@yahoo.com.
