Dr. Leon Koziol announced today the filing of a Supplemental Brief with the Supreme Court in the case of Leon Koziol v United States District Court for the Northern District of New York pending since June 17, 2016. On that day, four parents from different parts of the country held a news conference in Washington D.C. to help persuade the high court to give us meaningful accountability and constitutional protection of our parental rights.
The Brief dated September 17, 2016 was submitted this week to alert the court to escalating retributions from the states to our reform efforts. Interestingly three of the four parents who filed their petitions in May, June and July, 2016 are having their cases considered on the same day. The fourth parent received a decision this month in his federal case allowing him to go forward on certain of his claims in the California system, a rare event.
Significant to all victimized moms and dads, the Supplemental Brief asks the Supreme Court to order appointment of a Special Master to hold hearings and investigate Title IV-D funding of our state courts, erosion of parental rights and its adverse impacts on our children. It is part of a mandamus and prohibition action which Dr. Koziol filed in a federal appeals court in Manhattan against judges of the Northern District of New York due to a half century of undue deference to our nation’s divorce and family courts.
Complicated and extraordinary, yes, but not any more so than the abuses routinely practiced upon fit, mainstream parents for revenue and fee generating purposes. A complete copy of this Brief can be made available. However, for now, Leon has elected to publish key parts on separate subjects to give you a better feel for what is truly occurring in these courts. Today we are providing Point Two of the Brief to alert you to another profession which is harming our rights and finances, the psychiatric industry:
Point Two: Domestic courts are not constitution-free zones, and routine obstacles to federal jurisdiction can no longer be abused to deny parents basic rights.
