Fulton Superior Court Judge Bensonnetta Tipton Lane ’s

Pre-Thanksgiving Ruling Results In Father’s Suicide

Memorial Protest Rally Planned Friday, December 5th

( Atlanta , Georgia December 3, 2008 ) On Sunday, November 30th, following a three-year divorce and custody battle played out in a Fulton County Superior Court, Alpharetta, Georgia resident Gregory Eisenhauer committed suicide after he received a ruling from family court judge Bensonnetta Tipton Lane one day before Thanksgiving essentially stripping Eisenhauer of any decision-making authority for his three young children.

The case of Gregory Eisenhauer v. Anne Marie R. Eisenhauer was filed in February 2006. When Eisenhauer informed his wife of his plans to file divorce litigation, Anne Marie Eisenhauer filed ex parte charges against her husband for family violence and had him removed from the home, beginning the long and tedious road facing many parents who are victimized by their spouses and subjected to Parent Alienation Syndrome, or P.A.S. After being removed from his home, Eisenhauer's contact with his children was substantially reduced. Though Eisenhauer suffered diminishing relationships with his children, he faithfully pursued an amicable resolution through litigation before Judge Lane . Despite his efforts, Judge Lane taxed Eisenhauer with the substantial costs of litigation and incredulous hurdles to satisfy the court’s examination of his qualification to serve as the children's father. Only one day before the Thanksgiving holiday, Judge Lane essentially ultimately stripped Eisenhauer of his role as the father of his children. Sadly, Eisenhauer committed suicide days later.

The least seasoned human resource managers are taught to never terminate an employee’s employment during the holidays, such as Thanksgiving or Christmas, or on an individual’s birthday. While Judge Lane ’s authority as a superior court judge is not in question, her inconsiderate and unconscionable misconduct by issuing a ruling disassembling a family the day before Thanksgiving is. Despite her 22 years of judicial service, serving as a Fulton County Superior Court judge for 13 of those years, Judge Lane's conduct was, at most, wanton and intentional, or in the very least, an example of extremely poor judgment. Judge Lane’s misconduct undoubtedly contributed to the stress Eisenhauer faced while watching his family be torn apart by an unjust judicial system.

Mr. Eisenhauer was an educated man and seasoned business professional, employed in the pharmaceutical industry and rising to the level of Chief Financial Officer. His three small children have now lost a father due to the miscarriage of justice suffered behind the closed doors of Georgia ’s family courts. Judicial and Child Welfare Reform activists, many of whom have suffered similar miscarriages of justice in Georgian courtrooms, understood Eisenhauer's plight and offered him their support.

A MEMORIAL PROTEST RALLY IN TRIBUTE TO GREGORY EISENHAUER has been organized by a group of Judicial and Child Welfare Reform activists to raise public awareness concerning tragedies, such as Eisenhauer's death, and the unbalanced judicial system many parents have or will face in divorce and custody disputes. The Rally will take place on Friday, December 5, 2008, beginning at 8:00 a.m. at the Fulton County Courthouse, located at 185 Central Avenue, Atlanta, Georgia.

  1. I am going through the same thing here in Lewiston Maine. I have legal rights to my children week days and weekends and haven't seen them in two years not once. The Court does nothing. I have spent thousands, I have proven missed funerals of grandparents, holidays daddys work days, vacations, nothing matters to the court. Abusers and molesters get more supervised visits than some of us dads. All that matters is that I pay my child support. I hope all courts are not like this or Lewiston Maine. My heart goes out to this dad , his family and his children.

    May his sadness and this act be Gods wrath upon this terrible system and may we learn from this horrible tragedy. We love our kids too. Rest in Peace

  2. It's happening all over the U.S., yet few know anything about it unless they are personally experiencing it. The hopelessness that these dads often feel from inability to act in their own children's best interest is often crushing - it seems the more the dad is genuinely concerned for his children, the worse effect it has on him.

  3. I can’t believe this post is on Huckabee site. This post on Gregg Eisenhauer is appalling on the fact that Gregg was having a gay relationship with a black male while divorcing his wife.

  4. I can't believe good ol Monty Weinerstein, Bruce Eden, David Oles, etc. of the Father's Rights Crap managed to get this article on a Huckabee site. David Oles is well known for representing controlling, narcissistic men who are at their wits end to keep control over thier ex-wives. I know a man for whom Mr. Oles is his 5th lawyer; after 2 yrs. still giving this man false hope that one day he'll have full custody. The judges see through his charade. I have little doubt Gregg was a controlling man who once he realized his kids and ex were out from under his thumb, he gave up hope. Fortunately he didn't take his anger out on the kids or ex wife as so often happens.

  5. Anonymous,

    First of all, let me be quick to say that this blog is run by supporters of the agendas of Gov. Huckabee, but it is not intended to be the official representation of policy positions of Gov. Huckabee, any other candidate, or any official political organization. In other words, this is strictly a 100% grassroots effort.

    It just so happens that the main editor of this blog has been through 5 lawyers of his own, over the course of over 4 years, in an eerily similar case in Tulsa, OK. It has not mattered that he has video-taped evidence of actual sexual child abuse clearly performed by the mother, the uncle, and the grandmother of the children in the film, as defined by Oklahoma Statute. Money has been king in the Tulsa County Family Court where the mother's attorney (decades of experience) threatened to have the father's attorney (fresh out of law school) disbarred if the video tape was successfully presented as evidence in the case. The children's attorney also made it very clear to the father that she regularly works WITH the mother's attorney, instead of FOR the best interest of the children that she represents. This father has seen a big red hand-print on the side of a 4 year old girl's face and nobody in Tulsa County Family Court cares about that more than continuing the money-making racket that goes on here. If you would like to watch it, just go to the court house and observe what happens there on a daily basis to countless fathers. There's an awful lot more to it, but rather than bore you with all of the details, I'll just simply let you know that these things are only the tip of the iceberg.

    So, I don't want to be rude and say something like, "You're barking up the wrong tree.", but I believe that you can see that until overwhelming evidence to the contrary is presented (not just accusatorial statements that could not be verified, like those in the comments above), this blog's main editor will tend to believe the guy that killed himself and all of the people who knew him who state that this truly was a, "Tragedy in Georgia", and the story will remain on this blog.

    I do want to sincerely thank you for taking time out of your day to leave your comment.
