Description

"Traditionally, Family Court has received little scrutiny from the media. The underlying feeling has been that when divorcing parents wage bitter custody battles over their children those are personal matters best left in the dusty files of the courthouse basement." In an eight-month investigation into the Family Court system in North Texas, WFAA found a legal system filled with political corruption on the part of judges, lawyers and even psychologists. In one instance WFAA discovered that a court-appointed psychologist used outdated psychological test to falsely label some parents unfit to care for their children.
