Fighting B.A.C.K. – Sandra Grazzini-Rucki with Guest Tim Kinley of “Speechless Minnesota”

Abuse of Courts deprive people and families of their Constitutional rights and their liberties…” ~ Tim Kinley

This episode of Fighting B.A.C.K. with Sandra Grazzini-Rucki featuring guest, Tim Kinley of “Speechless Minnesota” will leave you… well, speechless!

FIGHTING B.A.C.K. AIRING ON NEW DAY: Monday Evening

NEW TIME: 6-8 pm EST/ 5-7 pm Central on Future of Our Children Radio (BlogTalk)

ORIGINAL EPISODE AIR DATE: March 20, 2017

Sandra and guest, Tim Kinley discuss the family court system 360 degrees – from all angles! Topics include family court from a personal perspective, and from a political perspective. Discussion will include Tim’s experience in the family court system, as well as general topics concerning family law. He will also share his knowledge on the Grazzini-Rucki case.

Tim is a father who has been involved in family court litigation, and was the subject of an outrageous court ruling from Judge Gary Bastian that prohibited Kinley from teaching his children the Bible or other religious ideas because it “posed a safety risk“. The court ruling violated Tim’s Constitutional rights, and was not supported by findings or case law. After an agonizing 5 year battle, the Appeals Court overturned Judge Bastien’s order. By then, the damage had been done to his relationship with his children. Kinley was once a loving, involved father had now become estranged from his children, due circumstances out of his control and influenced by the failings of the Court.

Tim had survived being unjustly jailed, financially devastated, and his life turned upside down by the court… and became motivated to improve the family court system by offering education and awareness about court issues to the public, and to legislators. Tim also works for family law reform efforts, with an interest in judicial accountability.

Tim has also extensively researched and covered the #grazzinirucki case on several episodes of “Speechless” and previously conducted interviews with Sandra and her family law attorney, Michelle MacDonald.Tim shares insights on the Grazzini-Rucki case, and what he has observed when court watching.

Episode 4 Fighting B.A.C.K with Janice Wolk Grenadier: Making Criminals Out of Our Citizens

courtscriminals

When you step into the family court realm your life is now done… you walk in as a citizen and you walk out as a criminal, that is what our courts are doing, it is well designed… they are making criminals out of our own American citizens..” – Sandra Grazzini-Rucki

On this episode of Fighting B.A.C.K. Episode 4 , Janice Wolk Grenadier, of Alexandria, Virginia, shares her incredible story of surviving a divorce that almost took her life.

I am going to stand up and believe in the United States of America, and that the American people are going to stand behind me, and not behind the corruption...”   ~ Janice Wolk Grenadier (YouTube)

Janice has been fighting in court since 2007 against her ex-husband who is the son of a judge, and comes from a politically powerful and well-connected family. During divorce proceedings, Janice exposed information about her ex-husband that included revealing shocking details about corruption occurring in Virginia that, Janice says, “runs all the way up the chain of the federal government”. In an attempt to silence her, Janice claims her ex-husband attempted to murder her, and hired someone to set her up for crimes so that she would be declared incompetent and locked away in an institution. He failed but the attacks continued. Janice also says she became the target for a smear campaign and internet blogs were made in her name that included vulgar and harassing content (note: in researching this article, the Justice blog has found a sexually explicit picture quote that includes the full legal name of Janice Wolk Grenadier, and supports her statements that defamatory content was created about her and spread across the internet).

Janice is now exposing the truth about what has happened to her in family court, she says, “so this will not happen to anyone else”. Janice does this at great risk since she faces retaliation for speaking out, including being illegally jailed for 22 days with 14 days spent in solitary confinement. Janice is now working to create software that would allow litigants to rate judges and track the outcomes of cases, with search terms to include the legal arguments used, as well as the professionals involved in the case. Janice says the software will help track and monitor data that can then be used to create statistics that will hold judges accountable, and give a better idea of what is happening in courts across the country. Janice also spoke about Pro Se America and other advances she has made to the judicial/court reform movement.

Brian Kinter of the Judicial Accountability Movement (J.A.M.) also joins the discussion to share his thoughts on the corruption of the judiciary and the challenges parents involved in court proceedings face, including violations of their Constitutional rights by out-of-control judges.

Also included in this discussion is tips and insights from the trenches of family court by 3 parents – Sandra, Janice and Brian – who have lived to tell, against incredible odds against them.

2013 Complaint Against Judge David L. Knutson Alleges Misconduct, Malice

Judge David L Knutson

Judge David L Knutson

“The rule of law was not adhered to and the entire trial was simulated litigation… ALL Judge Knutson’s orders are not merely voidable, these orders are already VOID.” ~ K.B. Complaint Against Judge Knutson

Shame on you for allowing this family to be torn apart by your orders. Shame on you for forcing children into a relationship with a father they are terrified of. Shame on you for forcing these children to make the drastic decision to go on the run in order to protect themselves…In cases like this I have to wonder how our system got to the point that destroying families in today’s society is ok.” ~ L.M. letter to Judge David Knutson

(Hastings, Minn) A complaint filed against Judge David L. Knutson on September 4, 2013, outlines his mishandling of the Grazzini-Rucki case. The complaint also describes how Judge Knutson’s reckless actions contributed to ongoing chaos in the lives of the Rucki children, and deprived Sandra Grazzini-Rucki of her rights. The complaint concludes that Judge Knutson acted with malice, that there is no other reasonable explanation for his conduct.

According to the complaint, “The record on case no. 19AV-FA-11-1273 shows a disturbing pattern where throughout, Judge Knutson has engaged in multiple acts of misconduct and actual bias, has repeatedly violated parties rights, and consistently fails to follow the law…

Judge Knutson has repeatedly denied the mother (Sandra Grazzini-Rucki) any and all contact with her children without any findings of endangerment, abuse or parental unfitness. In addition, throughout this case, Judge Knutson has made absurd statements in an attempt to somehow justify abuses of discretion.

The complaint accuses Judge Knutson of a “pervasive pattern of misconduct and impropriety” that includes:

-Bias, “acts for improper purpose to deny one party’s fundamental rights

-Making false statements of material facts

-Failure to follow the law

-Failure to follow the children’s “Best Interest”

-That Judge Knutson ordered Sandra to use specific providers he hand selected under the guise of therapy; yet these providers do not provide therapy. Rather, they provide forensic evidence for use against the mother.

-Judge Knutson abused his authority by forcing Sandra, under the threat of arrest, to disclose her location and phone number to a known abuser (whom she received a protective order against). This directly contradicts  a Minnesota law requiring judges to protect victims of stalking and abuse, and to prevent such disclosures of information to the abuser.

-Acting with malice

Read complaint in its entirety: Complaint Against Dakota County Judge David Knutson (Red Herring Alert)

On September 11, 2013, attorney Michelle MacDonald filed a Federal Civil Rights Action against Judge Knutson on behalf on Sandra Grazzini-Rucki.

The Grazzini-Rucki custody trial commenced one week after this complaint was filed, on September 12, 2013. Which means that Judge Knutson was under investigation while presiding over a case that he was accused of misconduct on. Judge Knutson was also presiding over a case while a Federal Civil Rights Action against him was pending.

At the beginning of trial, MacDonald asked Judge Knutson to recuse himself, which he refused to do stating, “With respect to you notifying me that I’ve been made party to some Federal lawsuit for civil rights violations, I’m not aware of that. I have no information about that. I’m not concerned about that. We’re going to proceed…” MacDonald presses on, reminding Judge Knutson that she wrote him a letter to inform him about the lawsuit. Judge Knutson’s initial response is evasive then he admits he did receive notice of the lawsuit, and recounts some details. Which means Judge Knutson is caught lying in court. Judge Knutson refuses to recuse himself, and moves forward with trial stating “I‘m not going to hold that against your client or prejudice your client for something you do” and states a Federal Civil Rights Action is “irrelevant“.


The Board of Judicial Standards responded on November 12, 2013, and determined, despite overwhelming evidence of each of these claims, that the complaint “
required no further action“. The Board further determined that the allegations did not sway them to take disciplinary action because the merits were not proven with a “clear and convincing standard“. It is unclear if the Board was aware of Judge Knutson’s conduct during the custody trial.

The Civil Rights Action faced a similar fate, excusing Judge Knutson’s actions under the guide of judicial immunity.

On November 25, 2013, David Rucki is granted sole custody of all 5 children. At the time of the order he was on probation for a guilty plea involving an OFP violation (Case No. 19AV-CR-11-14682, discharged from probation 10/17/2014. Judge Karen Asphaug conducted pre-trial on that case). 

On February 11, 2014, Judge Knutson filed a complaint against attorney Michelle MacDonald with the Lawyer’s Board. MacDonald said about the complaint, “Judge Knutson’s complaint came after I complained about to him to the Board of Judicial Standards about this: On September 12, 2013, Judge Knutson had me participate as an attorney in a client’s child custody trial in handcuffs, a wheelchair, with no shoes, no glasses, no paper, no pen, no files,missing children – and no client. This was the day after I had filed a federal civil rights action against him, on behalf of that client…MNBar.org Michelle MacDonald Candidate Information A hearing was recently held concerning the complaint against MacDonald, a ruling has not been issued at the time of this blog post.

Judge Knutson now sits as a member on the Board of Judicial Standards. No one in the family court system has been held accountable for the disastrous results of the Grazzini-Rucki case despite numerous complaints being filed.

When abuse allegations, and concerns for the safety of the Rucki children, were raised in this case the Court’s focus was not on the welfare of the children but instead pursued a dangerous agenda. Instead of protecting the children from harm, Judge Knutson and the various professionals involved, inflicted of trauma on children to force reunification with the parent they feared by taking an “assertive stance..to expose them to the object of their fear” and to “desensitize them“. (Dr. Gilbertson Letter).  The Court sought to silence by any means, the parent, Sandra, who sought to protect the children and thereby, stood in the way. The events that led up to the Rucki girls running away is a direct result of the court’s own failings. 

Had Judge Knutson, the professionals, appropriately responded to abuse allegations raised by the Rucki children and worked to protect them, there might have been a different outcome than a family completely destroyed; and children who may never recover from the abuses inflicted on them.

Never Forget: Judge Knutson – Stayed Sentence for Child Rapist

Never forget… Judge David L. Knutson let a child rapist, with a lengthy criminal history, walk free after he pleaded guilty to a brutal assault on a child. 

Child Rapist Gets Stayed Prison Term, 20 Years Probationed-prison-term-20-years-probation

Dakota County, Minnesota, May 7, 2013: Dennis Michael Roy, pleaded guilty to felony first-degree criminal sexual conduct after raping and repeatedly assaulting a 5-year old girl, a relative, from Eagan (Case No. 19HA-CR-12-495).

Roy faced a maximum of 30 years in prison and $40,000 in fines…but instead he walked free. Roy appeared before Judge David L. Knutson, who handed down his sentence on March 22, 2013. Judge Knutson sentenced Roy to a 16-year stayed prison term and 20 years of probation.

In September 2014, Roy was found guilty of a probation violation for loitering in public with an open bottle of alcohol. He served 45 days in jail.

Roy has 18 prior convictions, including second-degree burglary, multiple motor-vehicle thefts, multiple DUIs, trespassing, disorderly conduct and multiple domestic assaults.

The girl involved continues to struggle with the assault, and suffers from the effects of trauma.

Will Judge Knutson ever be held accountable? Unlikely because Judge Knutson is now a member of the Board of Judicial Standards that responds to complaints about Minnesota state court judges for violations of the Code of Judicial Conduct. Members Minnesota Board of Judicial Standards

Justice has not been served; the community remains at risk.

 

Comment on Grazzini-Rucki Case from a Child Advocate: The Court System in this Case is Causing Harm

In Response To: https://justice4grazziniruckifamily.wordpress.com/2016/09/07/horrendous-family-court

Canadian Advocate for Abused Children left the following comment:

I’ve been following this disgraceful, unprofessional treatment of these young LADIES and their Mother since the beginning.

These Young LADIES are not children. They have a mind of their own and it’s clear that the system and father is trying very hard to manipulate them. To recant the truth, and claim their mother did some sort of brainwashing called the “bogus” Parential Alienation Syndrome/Parential Alienation. There is no evidence this even exists. Yet, the system of so called professionals are suggesting that this is all the mothers fault.

In this interview this young lady has answered her question, yet she is still trying to make her say her mother was involved in the plan. Anyone can ask different questions in hopes to get the answer they want. It’s clear manipulation. Believe me a teenager at this age can not be manipulated to answer a question of lies unless they are threatened to do so. This case needs a qualified domestic violence lawyer that only deals with cases like this. The pro Bono lawyer’s that came on to the Tishmoni case would be great for these girls and mom. How can they even consider putting mom in jail for this. Most if not all mother’s would of done the same thing if their daughter/son called them in a panic. The court system in this case is causing harm to these girls and mom.

This court is so bias and abusive mentally to these girls and mom. Forcing your kid’s to be with you in spite is what I see this so called “father” is doing. It’s called domestic violence by proxy. I see black robe syndrome all over this case. If I was a family member I’d sue this court in criminal court and also make complaints on the family court judge. For the way he’s handled a case of domestic violence by proxy.

I’m a child advocate and work at a women’s shelter and I’ve never heard such unprofessional, unethical, biased judge other then Gorcyca with the Tishmoni case. Removal from the bench needs to happen with both.

Whatever goes around comes around. If you believe in God…He’s watching.”
