Grajales v. Bell-OR-Judicial Branch v. Taxpayers?

Grajales v. Bell-OR-Judicial Branch v. Taxpayers?

Ratings: (0)|Views: 188 |Likes:
Published by JournalistABC
(1) Grajales v. Bell was first opened by the State in 1995, and was closed when the children reached the age of majority in 2010.

(2) Courtesy of the CT tax payers, Quinnipiac Law provided children's attorneys (Alison Kaas), and GAL's for the Bell children until they were 18. QL Clinic director is AFCC organizer Carolyn Kaas:
http://www.scribd.com/doc/135006383/Judicial-Branch-Email-to-900-Court-Professionals-Soliciting-AFCC-Business

(3) Judge Munro founded the CT AFCC, and chose Kaas to teach the State's GAL training program at QL.
http://www.scribd.com/doc/134137761/CT-s-Required-Guardian-Ad-Litem-Training-Materials-Qualified-Immunity-No-Oversight-No-Decertification-Process

(4) According to the rulings and the 396 entries listed on the case registry, Frank Bell had a long dark past history which included various violent assaults on his family, threats, mental illness, religious extremism, and stalking and misusing the courts to stalk and harass his family. When Grajales reports these crimes, she is ordered to pay for the children's cell phones to stop Bell from calling her. Punish the victim much?

(5) Bell repeatedly violates orders, then successfully files motions for the State to pay for experts to defend multiple motions he files against Grajales.

(6) p.16-23: In 1996, Bell was charged with violating a restraining order, harassment, and filing false complaints with authorities after he made over 36 threatening phone calls to the children's therapist and showed up to Grajales home. He also filed false reports with DCF that Grajales neglected the kids because she did not get them tested for lead poisoning after they were exposed to lead paint in BELL'S OWN HOME.

(7) P. 24-26: In 2007, Judge Prestley denied Grajales motion to order Bell to undergo a psych eval. Subsequently, Grajales filed a motion for contempt to address issues concerning Bell's use of fire arms, paranoid rantings to his sons about "the blood of the children," and Grajales trying to incarcerate him. Hearing was set by clerk Buffy Irizarry for 11/21/2007. Parents ordered not to speak to children about these traumatic incidences.

(8) P.27: The Marshall dated the affidavit of service on the Contempt 11/13/2007. The document is file stamped "received" by the court on 11/28/2007.

(9) P. 28-29: on 12/3/2007, Judge Prestley appoints Dr. Sidney Horowitz to assess Bell. Horowitz never assesses Bell, recuses himself off the case, then bills the State for his services.

(10) P.29-32: Horowitz has charged the State $300 per hour for his services. State rate for contract psychologists is $128.75, but Horowitz does not have a State contract.

(11) P. 33: Prestley suspends Bell's parenting time and appoints Dr. Kenneth Robson to evaluate Bell because she has "serious concerns about the welfare of the Plaintiff."

(12) P. 34-42: Instead of evaluating just Bell, Robson instead performs a custody evaluation on the entire family and charges the State several thousand dollars for his services. He decides that Bell has serious mental health issues, is violent and abusive to Grajales and his current live in girlfriend in front of the Bell children, but that Bell should have more [unsupervised] parenting time.

(13) P.71-120: Some of Robson's bills match dates of criminal case hearings for a Frank Bell listed in the criminal court's registry. Robson was only appointed to assist with Bell's family court matter. It is not known if they are the same person.

(14) P. 43: On 8/31/2009 Judge Munro issues a trial decision. By then, the children are over 17, and well capable of speaking up for themselves. What exactly did Prestley and Munro think the value to the children of a custody eval and 18 solid years of litigation with a predator would be?
