This case, called a “defamation and slander” case by the Plaintiff, is actually about speech in the public interest and speech made for the protection of children.
In the family court case that led to this “defamation and slander” case, the two adolescent victims were present in court (because we assisted in their escape from their abuser). They were adamant in their demands to testify against their abuser, but they were not allowed to do so.
The child–now adolescent–subjects continued to specifically articulate complaints against the psychologist Eric Frazier in their statements against him that specifically articulated and described humiliation and insults directed at them. Frazier was quoted by the courts.
Everything they had said that had led to their escape was not allowed in court, and they were dragged back to the hands of their abuser.
If these adolescents had been allowed to testify in court, if their voices had been given the same weight as the voices of adults, there would have been no “slander and defamation” case.
As of now in the United States, children have no rights; their voices are not heard. There is no legal access to rights for children.
The ruling on this “slander and defamation” case has been appealed, on the basis of speech in the public interest and speech made for the protection of children.
The appeal is now going to be heard by the Second Circuit Court.
The Second Circuit Court is considered one of the most if not the most important circuit in the United States, covering New York, Connecticut, and New Jersey.
They have requested to hear oral arguments to this case on February 4th, 2021.
