“Judge Gorcyca made headlines earlier this year after the Michigan Judicial Tenure Commission found she committed judicial misconduct in a different child custody dispute. That case is being contested by the judge.”
This Judge was previously found guilty of misconduct by the Judicial Tenure Commission earlier this year…
“The ruling released this afternoon found Gorcyca “failed to establish, maintain, enforce, and personally observe high standards of conduct so that the integrity and independence of the judiciary may be preserved.” It also says she failed to take “personal responsibility for her own behavior” on the bench, an apparent reference to charges she lied in her initial response to the Judicial Commission’s investigation.
The ruling comes after a trial in late May before a judge over complaints filed by the Judicial Tenure Commission, accusing Gorcyca of inappropriate behavior during a June 24, 2015, hearing involving the three minor children of Omer Tsimhoni and Maya Eibschitz-Tsimhoni.
The case drew international media attention last summer when Gorcyca remanded the three children, now 14, 11 and 10, to Mandy’s Place, a facility within the Children’s Village juvenile detention center, for refusing to participate in parenting time with their father. The complaint accused Gorcyca of speaking to the children with anger and sarcasm and misrepresenting facts by telling the children they would be locked in jail cells and forced to use the bathroom in front of others, possibly until they turned 18.”
What a disgusting human being!! While no Judge should ever be threatened, perhaps it is not good for this Judge’s personal welfare, nor to the welfare of the general public that she maintains her seat.
