A Father's plea just to be able to see his kids

His crime?:

Asking for equal accessibility in the courts and then lodging a complaint against a judge when he did not.

Subject : A Father’s plea, recuse a judge and he takes your children.

This is from a hearing for a restraining order, which removed my daughters. The application was blank, listed no children and contained no allegation of abuse or threats.

Judge Kaplan, who signed the Ex Parte order, was the Administrative Judge for the entire county. It was granted for filing a motion to recuse the judge, a motion that was never heard and the Judicial Review Council dismissed my complaint. This case is now at the Supreme Court of CT.

It’s been over a year since I had any contact with my three children. Please forward this to everyone you can, Newspapers, Legislators, Civil Rights Groups, - It deserves an investigation, before the next father is abused.

Stand up and fight for you right as a parent before you or your sons go through the same.

Judges cannot be free to arrest, restrain and remove your children, without reason.

TRANSCRIPT OF APRIL 5, 2004

LEANNA PUTMAN V. CHRISTOPHER KENNEDY, ROCKVILLE COURT, CT HEARING TO CONTINUE A RESTRAINING ORDER ISSUED BY JUDGE JONATHAN KAPLAN

JUDGE LAWRENCE KLACZAK PRESIDING

Page 3
MR. KENNEDY: I’d like to object immediately, Your Honor, and I’d like to move to have this dismissed. This restraining order, if you read the copy of it, it doesn’t even list the children.

It was granted by Judge Kaplan ... MR. KENNEDY: I don’t understand how a restraining can get granted even ex parte if there’s no claims of abuse, and there’s no children listed. THE COURT: That’s what we’re here for.

Page 19
Q (Christopher)You mentioned custodial interference, as far as father being arrested for custodial interference— A (Leanna)Yes. Q --under those circumstances, the children were to be dropped off at seven o’clock p.m. on a Wednesday night. A Yes. Q Were you home at that time?

A No, I wasn’t. Q Did you make any contact with the father and where to find him if you were home or not home? A No….

Page 23
Q(Christopher)…you had a restraining order and you chose to ignore it and go pick up the children? A (Leanna) I went to the children’s school?

Yes. Absolutely. Yes. …

MR. KENNEDY: She(Leanna) entirely disregarded a restraining order that was served on her.

THE COURT: Yes. She’s testified that she did Page 38

THE COURT (To Leanna): This is the issue before me. It’s simple. … My concern is whether or not there’s a reasonable reason for you to feel that these children’s safety is impaired or in danger by his (Christopher) act of going to Hartford and getting a restraining order

THE COURT: That is the issue here. I don’t think there’s anything else other than language in the affidavit, which doesn’t mean particularly much.

Ruling
Page 63
THE COURT: …I’ve read the motion that you filed in this Court to recuse Judge Kaplan.

You’re suggesting that criminal charges be brought against him in your affidavit to recuse him. That, to me, smacks—of some instability. Maybe I’m wrong, but I am concerned for these children; and I think because of the concern —and it’s a legitimate concern and a reasonable concern through the testimony that I’ve heard here—that this restraining order should be continued.
