Unfortunatly the organized institution that passes for justice and law is so controlled, so corrupt, and so unbelivable ,...I wish all of us luck with our corrupt and caprecious system. Kudos to her for stepping out with this information. This was a very brave act. And this book is currently underapreciated.
Unfortunatly I don't think the American public is ready to fully grasp the depth and scope of this corruption and malase. Too many want to belive that our system is unfailable and just,....it isn't.
Always an out-spoken critic of the corrupt courts, Johnson was dis-barred in an attempt to silence her. In this book, she takes us into the court room, and explains clearly just how the corruption works, and how the judges are able to get away with their abuses of authority. She names names,and seems to be daring them to challenge her revelations in court. Along the way, she offers some excellent advice for presenting your own case, and cites relevant statutory and case law. The insights she offers should not be missed.

The Divorce and Domestic Violence "industry" is a social cancer and Barbra shows with her legal histories how it plays out in court. Her life demonstrated what happens to those who fight the system.
Just one caution ... Laws, court rules and court customs are different from state to state. The Massachusetts court procedures Barbara speaks of may be generally similar to what goes on in your state. But before you try to use them yourself, especially as a pro se, make sure you know how the system works where you live. Its hard to find lawyers like Barbara Johnson who will vigorously and tenaciously advocate for their clients even when threatened with personal harm. Talk to other pro ses. Learn to manage your own case regardless of whether you choose to use a lawyer or not.
