The Divorce So Bad it Made the Family Judge Flip Out

I came across this article from Time Magazine by  BELINDA LUSCOMBE about a family judge in Canada that basically flipped out on a couple because their behavior during the divorce was so bad.  The Judge apparently wrote his opinion having taken a very dim view of both parties.  I particularly enjoyed his dark and sarcastic tone in his very unusual order.  However, the opinion underscores in a humorous way a significant problem facing many family court judges.  I have often heard the saying that in Criminal Court, we have bad people on their best behavior.  But in Family Court we have good people on their worst behavior.  I wonder how many family judges have considered making an order like this one.

Here’s the link to the article.   http://healthland.time.com/2011/01/05/the-family-judge-who-flipped-out/
