TASK FORCE CONFRONTS BILLING FRAUD IN CONNECTICUT FAMILY COURT!
"CONNECTICUT, December 26, 2013 — Colleen Kerwick, Hector Morera, and Dan Lynch say they are fit Connecticut parents with open family court cases who are struggling to pay millions in questionable court ordered fees spanning several years.
This year, dozens of CT parents like Kerwick and Morera complained to the legislature that the court has misused the court appointment process to force parents into business relationships with unvetted and inappropriate court affiliated vendors who are bankrupting them through questionable billing practices. Despite a 2010 State auditor’s report showing millions misappropriated from the Judicial Branch’s $500 million annual budget, a legislative task force established to assess CT’s broken family courts disagrees with parents who blame internal fraud for the court’s issues and say an audit of the court’s books and contracts is unnecessary."
