thank you for your answer, just to clarify, are you saying the judge might find her in contempt without me asking him to? Or does she have to explictely request that. My lawyer wrote the court in response to the mediator asking to allow taping and in doing so pointed out the damage it has caused mother/daughter relations who is almost 16 in sophmore year taking honors classes.
Also clarify what you mean that the judge will rule against retroactively taping. The mediator did not know it was against the courts rule but after he found out it was he wrote the court asking them to allow taping since he painted himself into a corner. He had no choice since he was now complicit in what occured. But in doing so, threw me under the bus. I have been in counseling working very closely with a therapist voluntarily, and when I asked for vacation time he then revealed the taping (and admitted he had not heard them himself), only the intervention dr heard them in part. Neither knew it was against the order. My daughter is almost 16 so she has her own mind and isnt subject to brainwashing. when she has called upset about events with er mother there were times I pile on, but not often. She taped all of our calls and likely all calls my daughter has with others too. this has poisoned their realtionship and mother wants to pin her problems on me based on a few reamrks going back to April the judge ordered january 15 no more taping and she continued. if the judge rules taping is allowed what are my options ? Can my lawyer still file a contempt charge ? Does the court consider the big picture ? Like trying to keep me from public events such as track and taking my picture with the intent of upsetting my daughter? Essentially letting my daughter know she hates me and does not approve of our relationship? Is this information relevant to the judge deciding on whether taping is allowed ? Have you ever heard of a judge making a ruling then backing off a ruling based on a mediators influence ? He clearly got bum rushed by the x and was not aware of the ruling. So what choice does he have ? Can I sue the mediator and interventionist Dr ? It seems obvious they didnt know the court ruling and now are trying to justify the taping
