Behind the Black Robes: Failed Justice

The book addresses a serious problem, the need for court reform and the abolishment of judicial and quasi-judicial immunity. Marinated with the makings of sizzle, the book is f illed with the courts’ tricks and traps for the unwary—to alert the readers both why their law cases failed and what must be done to effect court reform.  E ach chapter introduces the background of the subject of that chapter and then presents a series of illustrative anecdotes intended to teach the readers by example how to avoid those court tricks and traps people are likely to encounter in their existing or potential court cases.

Its author, Barbara C. Johnson, an unconventional 74-year-old, has long been a fierce advocate for fathers’ rights in family courts.  She is an outspoken critic of the Massachusetts court system, which she says is rife with corruption.

In 2002, she ran a quixotic campaign for governor, campaigning in an antique fire truck and promising to use creativity, compassion, and a willingness to listen to the People to mend an ailing government.

In 2006, Johnson was barred from practicing law in Massachusetts. “The disbarment by a kangaroo court was an effort to silence my criticism of the courts,” she said.

A newspaper wrote, “While we don’t fully agree with either her politics or her methods, Johnson is a character in a humdrum world sorely in need of more characters.  She’s the t horn in the side, the thumbtack on the chair. . . . Johnson speaks her mind, and loudly.”
