|Bill Johnson, Superintendent of MCI|
Friday, September 13, 2013
Bill Johnson, Superintendent of the infamous Michigan Children's Institute, has filed an appeal to the Michigan Supreme Court because the Michigan Court of Appeals ruled that the paternal grandmother of four children was granted guardianship as his guardianship was revoked.
I do believe this is the first time the Court has revoked the legal powers of MCI.
Out of respect of the people involved, I will not publish the MCI appeal at this time, but I will be using a few choice demonstratives when commenting on the legal arguments.
Daniel Beaton, the Assistant Attorney General who always represents Bill Johnson, is a rather nice man but can lie his ass off in a courtroom. He is good. That is why Bill Johnson always wins. But this time is a different story.
The grandmother applied to for adoption and was denied but applied for legal guardianship and was approved upon appeal. Brilliant.
Bill Johnson went to the Court of Appeals and was thrown out.
Now, he goes to his buddy Maura Corrigan's (former Chief Justice of Michigan Supreme Court and current Director of Department of Human Services) old stomping grounds, the Michigan Supreme Court to cry the blues about the beginning of the end of his omnipotent reign.
Bill Johnson wants to cry the blues that he was not party to the case and had his guardianship stripped.
First of all, the state was just released from federal monitoring of relative preference placements, so Bill is violating a federal settlement agreement.
Second, there is no law which states that a person who has guardianship must adopt.
Third, Bill Johnson completely ignored the Interstate Compact on the Placement of Children. He overrode the decision of another state governor.
Bill Johnson is the legal guardian for more than 7,000 children. How can he possibly know what the best interests of the children are without third party knowledge?
Michigan Children's Institute is a 3 man circus that is an absolute waste of taxpayers dollars. It is about time judges of Michigan's bench and start making decisions. Let the people who actually care for kids be the guardians and tell Bill to go far away.
Bill Johnson is one of the last paleo-conservatives of chattel law. I expect him to be denied his petition for leave to appeal.
