From the transcript of the Business Meeting of the Judicial Council of California for October 25, 2012:
Yupa Assawasuksant: Good afternoon. Thank you for having me today to give my testimony. Please bear with me. I come from Thailand and I try to express my concern, reasonable concern in another language.
My name is Yupa Assawasuksant, I am a registered nurse who received award from the medical school. I receive the daisy pin for being an extraordinary nurse at Kaiser. I am also a divorced mother of 15 years old boy and I have been through Marin family court for the past 12 years. I am asking you today please make sure the mediation working fine and not destroyed.
Please listen to my story from my heart to yours.
Please imagine if you have a medical problem and your doctor destroy all your medical history. When you — medical exam is pending. It will be a crime, wouldn’t it be?
My son came home from an explanation private genital — private genital. Nobody no why. My ex-husband was claimed that he put something at my son private genital. My son came home and talking about pornography that he was seeing at his father house. My son was exposed to the violent video game of his father at age of 6 years old.
In 2006 while we were taking our son to the doctor appointment, the father was whispered to our minor son that I’m going to be killed or died. My son told me, told the police, and told a judge in court. My request was — my request for a restraining order was denied. We went through to custody trial in 2005 and 2007, I documented everything in my pleading. I was forced to go to the mediation, with the Court mediator, Gary Wool. During my first interview with my son, my son told her his father was hitting him. She did not include in her report to the Court. Filed in her handwritten notes that my son had informed her that his father was hitting him. She also testified during cross examination that she did not read the court file or any of my pleading, not one.
I won that trial with the 26 days a month with my son. Then Judge came into the family bench in 2007. My ex-husband file another custody motion. I ask for a different mediator. My request was denied. I challenged her, Dr. Wu sent another recommendation that I lost all the custody of my minor son and placed me on to supervised visitation per week, no holiday, no vacation, and the father did not ask any of that. During the second trial she testified again,
Dr. Wu testified again during cross-examination, she did not read the file, but she head all the father’s pleadings. She testified during cross-examination she did not know the local rule and the State law.
Even following the court mediation proceeding and procedure, I document everything I got all the transcript and I present all my information transcript to the legislature in support of the state audit of Marine family Court. Which is include my son pictures of — explanation, bruises as big as a fist side. Medical report, dental report, school report cards, and especially the note that the Court mediator, handwritten note that my son was telling her that his father hitting him. And all was destroyed before the audit could take place. Anyway, I just would like to say this before I go that we need the court reporter and the video in the Court. In the courtroom to be — retaliation by the judge and organized crime by the court mediator.
Thank you for having me today.
