If Restraining Order Cases Are Only about Narrative, How Do You Beat a Liar in Court?

September 16, 2016

4

The next to last post stressed the importance of narrative in restraining order cases. Stories complainants tell pursuant to obtaining a restraining order don’t particularly matter. “I’m afraid” may suffice. In contrast, defendants’ narratives are critical. Strategic defense is not about “telling the truth.” It’s about telling the better story. Competing narratives are universally regarded […]

Restraining Order Cases Are about One Thing: NARRATIVE

September 15, 2016

4

The universal conviction is that the court involves itself in a citizen’s life because the citizen did something wrong. Even judges are inclined to believe this. It’s wrong, and they’re wrong—and it’s very wrong of them to be wrong about something so important. The court involves itself in a citizen’s life because someone (automatically designated […]

The Female of the Species Is More Deadly than the Male: A Restraining Order Plot Twist That Fans of Novelist Gillian Flynn Will Appreciate

May 29, 2016

5

The previous post concerned the interpersonal and legal travails of a blogger who brought her story to my attention last week. Jenny has twice been served (this month) with restraining orders alleging “domestic violence” that were petitioned by an ex-boyfriend with whose son she had formed a parental attachment. The “man” resents her talking about […]

Evidence of Perjury Cannot Be Used to Appeal a Fraudulently Obtained Restraining Order

May 1, 2016

11

Someone once told me that the only value of a lock is to keep an honest man honest. The value of perjury statutes is exactly the same: They make an honest person extra careful about what s/he tells the court. To a liar (the person they’re supposed to thwart), they’re just “blah-blah-blah.” Perjury (often recognized […]

Why the Restraining Order Is the Perfect White Trash Instrument of Malice

February 27, 2016

5

People who exploit restraining orders are not necessarily victims, and they’re not necessarily the “good guys.” This post will be brief. Its only ambition is to show why restraining orders present trashy people with the chance to commit malicious acts with far-reaching and permanent consequences—and to do it hands-free using our justice system as their bully […]

The So-Called Dialogue about Restraining Order Injustice and How It Might Be Redirected with Smarter Words…Like FRAUD

January 29, 2016

3

Okay, first, there is no “dialogue” (or “debate”) about restraining orders. That’s a misnomer. There are uninfluential people speaking truth to influential people (occasionally) and influential people calling uninfluential people crazy (typically). That’s not communication, so it’s not a conversation. The only dialogues are between influential people talking to influential people (e.g., politicians with anti-domestic-violence […]

How Restraining Order Fraud is Motivated and Concealed by VAWA and Its Advocates

December 28, 2015

8

The previous post, which highlights how fraudulent abuse of process is promoted and disguised, contains a link to a PDF prepared by the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence (NCADV) called “Comparison of VAWA 1994, VAWA 2000 and VAWA 2005 Reauthorization Bill.” The acronym VAWA stands for the federal Violence Against Women Act, which was ratified over […]

Restraining Order Rulings Aren’t about Justice but about Justification, and Lies to the Court Only Work because Judges Also Lie

December 25, 2015

3

What this post predicts in its postscript occurred exactly a year after its publication.—Editor, 2018 Here’s a formula for fraud: You lavish police departments with hefty federal grants to urge their officers to steer complainants of abuse to the courthouse to apply for restraining orders. You have legislation in place that rewards impulsive or malicious […]

What False Accusation and Rape Have in Common

December 13, 2015

2

Rape is a crime that has become a totem for many. Its invocation impoverishes all other violations of significance and accordingly authorizes violations that would not otherwise be tolerated, like lying about abuse to authorities and the courts. That rape occurs and that it’s an ineffably vicious act aren’t questions but facts. They are urgent […]

Legal Abuse and “Learned Helplessness” (Including Commentary on the Mythical Value of “Taking the High Road”)

November 28, 2015

4

“Learned helplessness is behavior typical of an organism (human or animal) that has endured repeated painful or otherwise aversive stimuli which it was unable to escape or avoid. After such experience, the organism often fails to learn escape or avoidance in new situations where such behavior would be effective. In other words, the organism seems […]

Court-Abetted Trespassing, Burglary, Larceny, and Embezzlement:  A Terminally Ill Man’s Story of Restraining Order Abuse

“I know the purpose of the site is to decry the injustice of being falsely accused. Just have some sense of proportion, please. It’s terrible to be falsely accused. It can have many horrible consequences. It’s still light years away from being raped.” —Comment submitted Friday I believe the man who gives the account that […]

Litigation Privilege: Why Restraining Order Fraud Is Pandered to and Why the Falsely Accused Are Denied Recourse to the Law for Vindication, Relief, and Recovery of Damages

“Fraud is deliberately deceiving someone else [including a judge] with the intent of causing damage.” —Cornell Legal Information Institute “Generally, lying during trial (or any other part of litigation) is expected to come out at the time of trial. This means an action against someone for lying during a prior proceeding would fail because even […]

The Words Get in the Way: Reconceiving Arguments against Restraining Order Fraud

October 13, 2015

3

Traffickers of this blog will sometimes advise that complainants of abuse of so-called “protective orders” consider “the bigger picture.” They feel the matter is less about personal loss than about statutory and procedural derelictions (bad law and judicial bias, carelessness, and tyranny). They emphasize principle over individual privation. For some, the bigger picture that’s stressed […]

“There’s No Justice System; There’s Just a System”: A California Paralegal’s Advice on Defending Yourself against a Restraining Order Based on Fraud

September 29, 2015

The commentary and advice that follow are from a “paralegal at a top-tier criminal defense firm in Southern California.” I will go on record saying we have some clients that were slapped with permanent restraining orders and some were also on probation for prior convictions while the restraining order injunction was issued. A number of […]

What “the Law” Means in the Restraining Order Arena and Why All Reasonable Expectations Defendants Have Are Wrong, Wrong, Wrong

May 31, 2015

“I put a restraining order on my ex-husband. Now he’s depressed and staying in his truck.” “Can a restraining order result in suicide?” “Get [a] restraining order lifted for job.” “Can a restraining order be appealed if there isn’t evidence?” “How will it affect my child custody if I filed a false order for protection?” […]

You Don’t Want to “Be a Part of It”: Commentary on New York’s Protection Order Biz

May 21, 2015

I corresponded with a man last year, a man in a homosexual relationship, who was assaulted by his partner severely enough to require the ministrations of a surgeon. His boyfriend was issued a restraining order coincident to his being charged with assault. That’s how it typically works in New York: A protection order is issued following […]

In Perspective: How to Look at Restraining Order Judges Neutrally

March 15, 2015

6

It’s hard not to hate judges who issue rulings that may be based on misrepresentations or outright fraud when those rulings (indefinitely) impute criminal behavior or intentions to defendants, may set defendants up for further (or serial) malicious prosecutions by the same false accuser (and possibly land them in jail), and may finally inflict severe privations, […]

“She Said That I Had Been Burning Him Intentionally and That I Had Kidnapped Him”: Aaron’s Story of Restraining Order Abuse

February 27, 2015

The account below was recently submitted as a comment to BuncyBlawg.com, a site I’ve mentioned in several recent posts. Its administrator, Larry Smith, a former attorney, has been waging a one-man war on corruption excited by his relentless persecution through and by the legal system since 2011. Aaron’s story is one of a spiteful ex-partner […]

Inciting Violence: If Lawmakers Require a Compelling Motive for Restraining Order Reform, How about This One?

February 12, 2015

48

I examined a case, recently, of a man’s committing murder hours after being accused to the police. My familiarity with the case was, admittedly, shallow; I only had what was reported to go on (and that from a single, “raw” source). I have, however, heard from scores of people who’ve been accused—or scorned for telling […]

“On the Receiving End of a Sociopath’s Lies”: A Professional Mom’s Story of Restraining Order Abuse

February 10, 2015

The following account is reproduced almost verbatim from an email of recent vintage. Its writer is a professional woman and single mother of three with whom I corresponded last year while she was embroiled in strife—legal, medical, and emotional (a synergy of torments that’s been reported here before). The capsule version of her story is that she was […]

“Trapped”: Betty’s Story of Restraining Order Abuse

January 2, 2015

Betty Krachey says she only wishes she had superpowers. She has, nevertheless, been flexing her muscles pretty impressively for a former drugstore clerk. Betty launched a website and e-petition not long ago to bring flaws in the administration of restraining orders and the need to hold false accusers accountable to the attention of lawmakers in […]

Why Women Who Are Falsely Implicated as Abusers Have No Defenders

December 28, 2014

6

Women who are ravaged by false allegations of domestic violence or “violence-related” offenses—whether in civil restraining order prosecutions, or in domestic violence or family court cases—are a minority among the targets of lies. Hunt up comments by female victims on the e-petition “Stop False Allegations of Domestic Violence,” and there’s a good chance those comments will contain an emphatic […]

You Can’t Sue for Perjury: Why Targets of Restraining Order Fraud and Other Procedural Abuses Based on Lies Get Screwed and Stay Screwed

December 21, 2014

The postscript (P.S.) to a series of comments left on the blog this week by the stepmother of a man who was falsely accused of violence asks whether he could sue his ex-girlfriend for lying. The details, as the stepmother reports them, are these: Man and woman, who aren’t married, were together for four years […]

A Story of Female Sterilization That Should Stress to Those Who’ve Been Violated by Fraudulent Abuse of Legal Process Why Reporting Judicial Tyranny and False Accusers Is by Itself Pointless (You Must Demand Change)

October 27, 2014

The point of sharing the explication below is to emphasize how forlorn prospective recourses for redressing rights violations stemming from false restraining order and similar prosecutions are. Accountability is zero, across the board. If you’ve ever wondered why a judge may be censured for rude conduct but not for ignoring lies or misrepresenting evidence, here’s why. Quoted from “The […]

“Predator” v. “Porn Star”: Restraining Order Fraud, False Allegations, and Suing for Defamation

October 26, 2014

6

People falsely alleged to be abusers on restraining order petitions, particularly men, are treated like brutes, sex offenders, and scum by officers of the court and its staff, besides by authorities and any number of others. Some report their own relatives remain suspicious—often based merely on finger-pointing that’s validated by some judge in a few-minute procedure (and that’s when […]
