hey I am not from JMLS but the organization is one that is aiming to so much difference. there should definitely be more in number. Child Custody decisions in itself is a issue which needs to be seriously taken care of. More of us should be coming forward to create sites and organizations where citizens can come forward...

Juvenile Court proceedings are confidential. I can discuss and post pleadings and issues that are now part of a public record through appeals. There are other matters to be added later once I file additional appeals and after May 16, 2007.

Please visit
www.alp justicepact.org later today to see updates on my appeals in Supreme Court of Georgia and in the United States Supreme Court---appeals to go back up with at least two more opportunities (denial of Feb 2007 appeal in Supreme Court of Georgia and Petition for a Writ of Certiorari after divorce is final).

I feel like I'm alone out here in "webspace" on this issue. I started ALP when I was released from serving 10 days in jail for failure to pay child support when I am financially bankrupt and the father earns in excess of $185,000 per year.

But I don't think that's the real reason I was sent to jail.

I had been protesting the Juvenile Court decision and John Marshall Law School's interference and involvement in the custody trial (even at the Douglas County Courthouse with duct tape on my mouth - which is what I think they want from me) from September 2006 through January 2007.

All that protesting was actually admitted in the January 2007 hearings to show "how I spend my time" and in support of the father's argument that if I have "time" and "money" to protest, I should be looking for a job 24/7.

Well, "protesting" on the web costs nothing compared to public protesting, although I plan to go back to Douglas County Courthouse and Supreme Court of Georgia over the course of the next few weeks and months after the next hearing in Juvenile Court May 16, 2007.

This all began when I sent a draft complaint to John Marshall Law School in April 2006 explaining why I believe the performed a "cost-benefit" analysis on the value of my legal degree and offered settlement only in equity (I specifically wanted their help in the administrative appeal of the "tentative" denial of my fitness application). In response to my offer of settlement grounded only only in equity, JMLS's attorney Brian Douglas sent a letter containing many threats, one of which threatened "results far beyond my contemplation”, see
www.jmlsatlanta.info (previously www.johnmarshalllawschoolinc.info - if you've visited this site before, you will need to delete your cache or no links will work).

Almost two years later, those "results" were realized in my custody trial, which admitted more evidence in the federal lawsuit against JMLS and my appeals of first incarceration (neither found frivolous and no claim yet to be dismissed), to "show how I spend my time" with no allegations of neglect or abuse.

Before I filed suit against JMLS, I was a "perfect" parent, or at least as perfect as any parent can be, but never good enough (for me).

I have three wonderful children, all gifted, one attending an ivy league college on $20,000 scholarship my 11-year old similarly gifted, and the child in the middle of all this mess is the most sweetest, brightest, smartest, cutest, curious, special child. To that end, I whave been very blessed.

There are movements towards class-actions cases across the Nation for domestic relations matters, in particular, in Douglas County Georgia has a group, which I have contacted and intend to fully participate in.

In any event, John Marshall Law School is not the same as it was when I enrolled or graduated. My main concern still is the number of
professors who come from big firm backgrounds (all defense attorneys for Fortune 500 companies), and the problem that exists when this is juxtaposed with vague and elusive concepts of "good moral character"---i.e., exactly what are these big firm professors teaching about "morals" when the "institutions" bottom line is profit?

The ONLY (?) for-profit law school in the country accredited by the ABA..

Are  you the same Van Detta that is(was) married to the erstwhile Professor Jeffrey Van Detta? What is this all about?
