The Cowardly Judge

First of all, I want to thank all of you once again for your support, your prayers, your words of encouragement, your positive thoughts, and for all of you who took the time to write a letter to the judge for and on our behalf.

Friendship like this is priceless, and I am amazed on a regular basis at the amount that has been shown, by people who we have never met face to face.

As any of you who read Diann's blog may know. Two days ago, we got a phone call from the judge's chambers. She was dismissing oral argument and she will issue a written opinion.

What does this mean?

It's anyone's guess.

We discussed it at length with our attorney, and we concluded that what it boils down to is that she is a coward and does not want to face us in open court and look us in the eye.

It could mean that she is embarrassed to actually admit that she was wrong publicly, and prefers to do it on paper, or it could mean that she knows that denying our motion is wrong, and she prefers to do it in private.

It could also be a knee jerk reaction to the fact that Channel 7 had requested permission to have their cameras in her courtroom today, and she balked at the idea.

So whatever the case, she has up to 21 days from today to render her decision.

Popular theory is that she will do so sooner.

My guess is that the sooner it happens the more likely it is to be favorable to us, and the longer it drags out the less likely.

But that is just me predicting the unpredictable.

We will keep everyone posted,and again, thank you so much.

It is friends like you who have carried us through these very difficult times.

  1. I sympathize with you & your family. I know families who have been victims of Hubbard's carelessness/lack of concern/ lack of care for the children. The only thing Hubbard cares about, is clearning her docket. Nevermind the hell, torment, and/ or danger she willingly sends children from infants - 17 through.
    Just as I pray over these families, I pray over yours, and others who cry everyday, because of what the children are enduring, and the helplessness felt because if you attempt to protect the children, Hubbard will take them from you. So prayers are sent in the hopes of our cries are being heard, & God moves in favor of the children.
