In divorce, as in all things, justice is not always served. The right result doesn't always happen. Sometimes the bad guys (or gals) win, because the judge got it wrong or the case was poorly presented or just because things didn't go quite right that day.
On Thursday, I had the, pleasure might the wrong term for it, of watching and presenting on the ethical issues presented in the movie "Divorce Corp." to Georgia State University College of Law students who are interested in Family Law. Pleasure might be the wrong term for it but not because of the students, they were engaged in the film and the discussion, but because of the film itself.
More people are involved in a divorce than just the couple. Lawyers and the judge are involved, too. I've written about some of the biases and barriers that parties bring to the litigation and about the pitfalls and problems which lawyers bring. But tonight I write about judges' judicial bias; the judge's point of view.
