Another example where the incumbent family court judge(Judge Patricia Gardner) ignored the law and caused extensive harm to a child, parent, and adoptive parents. The Michigan Supreme Court had to step in to reverse the judge and clean up this case. The brief facts are this: the incumbent judge terminated the parental rights of the parents to the young child. This was determined to be improper by the Michigan Supreme Court. However, it gets worse. The incumbent judge again ignored the law and common sense and allowed the child to be adopted while the case was being appealed.
How many other parents have had their parental rights wrongly terminated by this incumbent judge?
