Part Twelve

www.fatherhoodcoalition.org 617 SAD-DADS

Nomination hearing for Sydney Hanlon to the Massachusetts Appeals Court. The nomination of Judge Hanlon, currently a district court judge, was opposed by representatives of The Fatherhood Coalition (Part 4[end], 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 12[end] and 13) because of her active promotion of the domestic violence legal system. Dorchester District Court under Judge Hanlon was one of three courts nationwide used as a domestic violence court model/prototype by the US Justice Department.

The council also voted 4-3 to confirm the nomination of Laurie MacLeod to be a judge at the Palmer district court (Part 11 and 12). Atty. MacLeod's nomination. Two weeks earlier when the council's presiding officer Lt. Gov. Murray closed the council meeting without a vote on MacLeod she was expected to lose. The vote change came about because one councilor opposed to MacLeod was absent due to a family death while another councilor supporting MacLeod, absent at the previous meeting, was in attendence. There are apparently no provisions to prevent the manipulation of council votes in this way.
