Norm Pattis: Massachusetts Busybodies Kidnap A Conn. Teen

, The Connecticut Law Tribune


Massachusetts Judge Joseph Johnson has imposed a gag order on the parents of Justina Pelletier, preventing them from raising public questions about why their daughter remains in custody in the Bay State. It is not at all clear to me why the parents have not contested this gag order.

    I wish Mr. Pattis could tell us how it is the Massachusetts Courts can justifying holding this child. The child was not a resident of this state, she was simply seeking care here.I have yet to meet the attorney who can explain what legal basis is being used to hold this child, a child from another state.This case is more troubling than Mr. Pattis makes it out to be. This appears to be a court that has no respect for our laws and the rights of our families. Determining which court has jurisdiction on a member of society is not all that complicated, however the judge in this case appears to be ignoring the facts, no wonder they want a gag order.
