On Wed., March 22, there will be a hearing in Essex County Court in Mass. which could result in the banning of a book by a Fathers Rights Activist, Kevin Thompson.
Kevin Thompson’s book is available here: http://www.lulu.com/content/198514
Kevin Thompson has been fighting a long and lonely battle in the Essex Probate and Family Court to try to be able to be a father to his son. Several months ago, the court impounded the records of the trial and Judge DeGangi has recently granted a restraining order forbidding Kevin from distributing his book, Exposing the Corruption in the Massachusetts Family Courts, which apparently is still available at www.lulu.com.
Kevin was to have a hearing on the book ban several weeks ago, but Judge DiGangi apparently recognized that there would be a conflict of interest were he to rule on the issue, since Kevin comments extensively on DiGangi’s behavior in his book. As a result the hearing was rescheduled for this Wednesday, so be there if you can! It’s at 2 Appleton Street in Lawrence.
The testimony and affidavit that Kevin will be giving at the hearing are available on our web site at www.fathersandfamilies.org and then clicking on “View File” next to the news item regarding Kevin on the left side of the page.
There may well be some substantial First Amendment issues here, and Kevin certainly raises some serious concerns about what happens to fathers in Probate and Family Court.
