I received this as a comment on Judge Whitwell’s blog that I wrote. Judge Whitwell is a family court Judge in Atlanta and she has no eithics, and is so corrupt it is not even funny. It is time to take this Judge off the bench – She is in bed with CPS, and all the others who involved with the stealing of children. From the this mother’s comment it would appear that she can also be bought for a price. This mother was abused in court- after she had been abused by the father’s family. Enough of this already. Just because the family has money and has influence this mother should not continue to suffer abuse at the hands of a bias Judge and court. It is time to get his child home before he is ruined forever. I am posting her story just as she wrote it to me. This young woman needs someone who is in the legal field on her side. She doesn’t deserve to lose her son forever.!

I am dealing with a private deprivation case that was started back in 2005. I had no money at the time to fight and when I did get money I paid a lawyer for my divorce (she did nothing) then had to pay a second lawyer to do that and take this case but nothing got done with this one (custody) due to another lawyer on the case not filing the last order in the case for almost 2 years. The first time I went to Court (October 12,2005) I had my original assistance dog with me. The judge did not even realize Sydney was in the court room until I went to leave and all the recordings were stopped. When we went to leave she blew up at me and was cussing at me telling me how dare I bring a G.D. Dog in her G.D. courtroom who the hell did I think I was? When I tried to explain that she was my assistance dog (at the time I just had the peripheral neuropathy, and degenerative disc disease in my back) she would not let me finish she told me to shut the hell up it was her damn court room and I better not do it again despite the guardian ad litem telling her she could not tell me I could have her there. The Judge proceeded to say it was a damned good thing I was getting a drug test because I had to be on something to have brought a dog in her G.D. courtroom at that time she changed it to a follicle test as well.
She has held an extreme prejudice against me every time I go in her courtroom ever since that first time in court and has managed to make mention of it every time as she looks to see if I have disobeyed her orders.This time in court I have tried to show proof of my change of circumstance. I have shown proof that one of the attorneys lied several times and she blows me off. I had an attorney friend help me prepare my motion to release the transcripts of the last court date and she made fun of me and said all she remembered of me was me trying to bring a dog in HER courtroom “as if”. When she started to chastise me again I proceeded to again inform her of the ADA laws and she said those laws do not apply in to quote her “MY” courtroom and “MY” courthouse. It is not a seeing eye dog ! As I tried to explain she started to make fun of me to all the lawyers in the room again. I am guessing the other people were lawyers there were about 10-15 unknown people in the room not relevant to the case. My mother and a friend were there as witnesses. I also brought up that my ex husband had put a motion forward for custody of our son and she scoffed at that and said SO another person that does not have any law school trying to practice law. Making all the lawyers laugh and I am so sick of it she told me I could not afford to have the transcripts done unless I had hit the lottery as most court reporters charged by the word (this started out earlier in the hearing as being charged by the page) and went on to pound that into me several times. I was denied a change of venue even though I had spoken to Cobb County and they said they would accept the case (this is where the guardian lives). I asked her for this several times. When questioned why since my son’s “temporary” guardianship was until he is 18 why did it matter to her She had no comment but remarked again to her lawyer contingent “again someone that has not been to law school trying to practice law!” As it was I over heard all of them talking about the case and laughing at my motion and my son’s biological father’s motion as well before we were called in the courtroom
Oh and I forgot to mention that the Guardian Ad Litem was Kristi Rowell as well does this seem like a pattern to anyone else??
I have no objections If you know anyone that can help. I would appreciate it. We are still fighting to get our son back. I was NEVER guilty of what they charged me of. I was set up by the last husbands parents. They had that service dog stolen when I appeared in court the next time since I could not bring her to court per the judges blow up. And yes Judge Whitwell said God Damned dog in her God Damned court room. Now in Butts county they do not allow you to bring in Cell phones, cameras, pens, paper, or even a book to read while you wait for your case. I still cannot afford a lawyer and the ADA group will not touch it unless I have proof of her saying anything about my assistance dog. If I can gain another hearing which I am thinking of applying again for either custody or at least court ordered visitation so the uncle has to let him see us. I still do not know if she ruled I could have the records transcribed. The time between us being in court and the summary of the court was filed was 2 yrs. And not only the scriveners errors but the people in the court room, the ruling of the court, and the fact I did not have to have supervised visitation once I had dfcs check my house out was NEVER entered in it. Plus we were not in court the day it said we were. We were in court almost a week or so after that.
Anyhoo If you need any documentation let me know I am scanning it all in shortly to send to my son’s father. We are still trying to find a lawyer. We NEED a lawyer. Trust me I promise any lawyer that takes the custody case will have an ADA case as well that I can get her for damages on. And they can have that money. It will be worth it to see her taken down.
Last yr we knew where he was playing Ice Hockey at and Made all his practices and all of his in town games. Now his uncle has him playing somewhere else and will not give us his schedule but here is a link to the pics if you want to use any of them you are welcome to. My Service Dog ,Bogey, was the unofficial team mascot. He loved the kids and vice versa. He would jump up and watch them on the ice.
You had said that everything should be in the transcripts and I should be able to get it but don’t I need a court order since it is a juvenile case? When I went in with a motion to get permission based on the fact that a LOT of the last Order of the Court that was written and submitted to the courts was WRONG and I wanted to have it all opened back up and changed.. One of the Biggest was that we were not in court on the day it said we were we had been continued to another date.. Plus some people were not in the courtroom (the father) and my parents were there esp since my father addressed the court and we made sure my ex inlaws that caused all of this could have NO contact with my son which has not happened, It was all supposed to be in the order. It is not.
That is when she made fun of me and all. Judge Whitwell still signed that order. Almost 2 yrs after the court date. She also NEVER gave my son’s grandfather permanent custody but the paper says she did now. It is all messed up. After reading your pages and all I went searching on my son’s grandfather’s atty that wrote all of that up. She is pending disbarrment. She was disbarred. but there was conflicting punishments so they have it under appeal. We also found some other people’s complaints of her procrastination on filing papers, lying to clients and other people etc. So I would not be surprised if she lied on the order as well. A Lie of Omission is still a lie. Should I string her out to dry on that too?
