Update, Thursday, October 12, 2012:
It was reported that not only had the poster been taken down, but it was replaced by a similar poster which is completely gender inclusive and neutral. We hope to get a picture of it…
Judge Maureen F. Hallahan, Superior Court, Supervising Judge, Family Court Division, thanks us for bringing to her attention the problems associated with the poster on the left, the one that hung in a Superior Court building for all to see. The poster has been removed. It was replaced by another poster. Let’s hope doesn’t bash parents, regardless of sex. ?We sent her a nice thank you letter. You can read the Judge’s letter by clicking on this link.
Here’s the back story…
On September 12, 2012 NCFM sent a short letter to Robert J. Trentacosta, San Diego County, Superior Court, Presiding Judge, which you can read in our earlier article, NCFM letter to San Diego Superior Court Judge Robert J. Trentacosta re Dad bashing poster .
In short, we requested that a Dad bashing poster hanging on a wall in the South County Courthouse be immediately removed. We confirmed yesterday morning that the poster has not be removed. Nor have we received a reply from Judge Trentacosta or any other judge on the letter’s distribution list.
Hence, we decided to try again. Our National Board Secretary, a noted California civil rights attorney, expanded our request into another letter which was sent today which you can read here: 120925 Al Rava ltr Re South Bay Poster.
We are hopeful Mr. Rava’s new reuest will cause the poster to be removed, a letter of explanation from Judge Trentacosta’s office, and a directive to all San Diego courthouses, judges, and administrators that such gender biased propaganda has no place in public facilities, especially those considered to be halls of justice.
STOP DAD BASHING!

NO DAD BASHING. NO DAD BASHING. NO DAD BASHING. NO DAD BASHING. NO DAD BASHING. NO DAD BASHING. NO DAD BASHING.
