THIS STORY HAS LED TO A FEDERAL LAWSUIT – OF COURSE IT IS UNLIKELY THE FEDERAL COURT WILL DO THE RIGHT THING AND PROTECT THE PUBLIC FROM THE NJ FAMILY COURT. SEE STORY BELOW:
NYACK, N.Y. , June 8 /PRNewswire/ —
Whistle-blower Jill Jones-Soderman, a New York -based social worker and the executive director of The Foundation for the Child Victims of the Family Courts, says she is being persecuted by New Jersey government officials for her role in revealing explosive information.
According to Jones-Soderman, the problems started when she was subpoenaed by a client inNew Jersey to provide information to the family court. She was working pro-bono as a therapist and forensic advocate on the case. While trying to bring certain facts to the attention of the court, Jones-Soderman claims Judge Mary Margaret McVeigh used her position to suppress evidence and testimony, and eventually to retaliate by placing a false complaint with theNew Jersey licensing board. Now, the licensing board is actively contacting other state boards where Jones-Soderman is licensed and posting what are supposed to be closed hearings on the internet.
The suppression of evidence and the collaboration of the various parties involved in the case may have led to the suicide of a 12-year-old boy, Jones-Soderman explained. The boy “refused to be taken from the protective custody of his mother to be placed with the brutal treatment and intimidation of his father,” she said. The young boy left a note that read “I love you mom.”
“Not one licensing board was in any way interested in the underlying issue of the case: the protection of young children in a wildly rogue, fraudulent and biased court,” Jones-Soderman said, adding that the Attorney General’s office has been harassing her and her clients using tax-payer money ever since. “Patients visited by the attorney general’s office have continued as my patients and have testified on my behalf only to be themselves ridiculed and threatened in court.”
Eventually the attorney general’s office and its licensing boards – through what Jones-Soderman calls deception and intimidation – removed her state license. She says assistant state attorney Susan Berger threatened “that if I did not sign what she wanted me to sign; I would not leave the courtroom in time to pick up my child from school.”
One of the heavy hitters who has come to her defense is Dr. Monty Weinstein, an internationally acclaimed forensic expert and the founder of the Family Therapy Center. “The bureaucrats of the state in my opinion have to be held accountable for this complicitous witch hunt against a fine, brilliant and creative therapist,” he wrote in an affidavit filed with the court. “I hope and pray that I will get to opine.”
Jones-Soderman has filed multiple civil rights law-suits including a racketeering influenced and corrupt organizations complaint in federal court against various state actors. The filings allege that these accusations have made Jones-Soderman vulnerable to extortion. She is also pursuing multi-million dollar suits against some of her former attorneys, who she claims made no attempt to protect her rights.

[COMMENT: I was utterly disgusted when I read about this story and the conduct of a Judge potentially leading to the suicide of a 12 year old boy. Worse the woman who was trying to protect the boy ended up being victimized to the point of having her career destroyed.
As a citizen I demand the Judicial Conduct Committee, Chief Justice Rabner, Judge Glenn Grant, and Joanne Dietrich investigate this matter, in the interest of Justice and for the sake of upholding the integrity of the court.
This story deserves to be fully investigated at a minimal]
