Even Family Court Judges Have to Vent Sometimes

I guess the Honorable Joseph Quinn, a Canadian Family Court judge, finally reached his breaking point. Judge Quinn was faced with a particularly bitter divorce and custody battle between two residents of honeymoon hotspot Niagra. After a long legal battle over custody Quinn issued a 31 page opinion blasting the parents and lacing his order with sarcastic humor stating that the father had an empty "parenting toolbox" and referring to an effort by the wife to run the husband over with her car as "a telltale sign that a husband and wife are drifting apart."

While some may say such orders bring the judiciary into disrepute, I think it is good on occasion to hold a very dark mirror up so people can hopefully see how foolish their actions sometimes are.
