February 15, 2018 at the Solano County Superior Court, the Court Executive Office confirmed to a group of three women that they needed to directly serve Judge Cynda Unger their Intent to Recall notice, but Judge Unger and her clerks refused to receive service.
This is the Fifth Recall in Five Years, all served by total strangers, advocating over the exact same issue: a pervasive pattern of Solano Family Judges Refusing to acknowledge credible evidence of abuse, denying women protection (which resulted in the 11/16 murder of Kenesha Jackson), and forcing children to live with fathers with a documented history of physical and sexual abuse.
Sex offenders, felons, and men with a history of spousal and child abuse are getting primary and sole custody of minor children. No matter how much evidence of abuse the women bring in, Solano County Family Court judges are blanketly calling women liars, claiming they aren’t credible, and even ordering the destruction of evidence.
Attorneys are advising women in Solano County not to bring up evidence of abuse because it’s a ticket to lose custody of their children, and many refuse to practice in Solano County because the bias is so great. Many of the mothers have sons of their own and would never want their son falsely accused of abuse, but these are not those cases. Even with overwhelming evidence, the women and children aren’t being believed and protected.
We’ve put together the cases and the evidence. This isn’t a bunch of “whiny mothers.” Much like the victims of Larry Nassar that were continually disbelieved, will Solano County finally listen?
Since when [does] Unger care about legalities?
