The Lubbock County Court filed the Termination Order three days late, another violation of our due process rights. You have 20 days to file a Notice of Appeal. The Order was also signed one day after the due date, meaning Judge Didway violated statute. By law, there is a deadline for the signing of a Termination Order. This did not prevent us from filing the Notice of Appeal but it's one of many examples of how they retaliated throughout the case. They insinuated that there was a trial. However, in order for there to be a trial, both parties (petitioner and respondent) must attend.

We were prevented from preparing for trial because a) the judge along with all opposing parties violated Discovery and Pre-trial rules. Discovery cannot be conducted within 30 days of trial. It must be done prior to this in order to give afford parties due process. Judge Ann-Marie Carruth aided them in these violations by filing the trial rules in after the 30-day deadline. This was one of many things this judge did that not only violated our due process rights but violated civil procedure, statutes, and judicial canons. We motioned to have her removed for these acts along with a previous violation of due process rights during a de novo hearing, where she changed the nature of the hearing for the benefit of CPS. Judges in CPS cases are accomplices to child exploitation; they are not impartial and decent law-abiding officials.

We're attaching several court documents below, including the Memorandum Opinion that shows where the 7th District Appellate Court Justice James T. Campbell entered false statements regarding what we did and did not do to preserve the record. James T. Campbell focused more on how we chose to represent ourselves rather than focus on the issues at hand. He even avoided the very serious issues regarding Ann-Marie Carruth's conduct.
