At least to me, It was painfully obvious that Judge Adams was not behaving in a judicially responsible manner when she conducted our trial, or wrote her opinion. Her opinion was a one sided, biased piece of trash that was full of errors and omissions. For this and other legal reasons, we immediately filed an appeal. This appeal took over 8 months to complete due largely in part to the court taking almost 5 months to produce all transcripts and the case file.
The case file was only produced when I reminded my attorney that "for the last three years, our case file has been in the court room of Judge Adams". Within 2 days, the file was in the hands of the Michigan State Court Of Appeals (COA).
Appeal Date 8-6-2013
Decision should be soon after.
8/6/2013 - We had our day in court and I will tell you it was intimidating. It is quite easy to respect a position when the person within does their job. I do not yet know how they will rule but they only asked 2 questions.
9/3/2013 - Still no decision from the court.
Some time in 2013, the COA sent our case back to the lower court. In 2014, under a new judge, a new decision was made. this decision took into consideration the experiences on my son and his future. This decision was fair and just.
