An Ounce of Prevention...Judge Esther L. Wiggins
My daughter is 14 years old. The last time her father allowed me to see her, she was 7 years old. I saw her at her home in Alsace, France December 7th, 2005. My beautiful girl was unable to speak a word of English.
Her father abandoned her with two elderly women. He resided in Arlington and Washington DC. Judge Wiggins forced me to pay this man THOUSANDS in child support, to a man, who did not have physical custody of a child. According to my ex, Judge Wiggins knew he left our daughter in France for all of those years. According to my ex, Judge Wiggins was going to his restaurant in Washington DC. He told me that he would cook for her. He told me that she would always believe him, no matter what, and I had better not try taking any action in her Court because....in his own words...."I have nothing to be afraid of."
Sadly, this man is right.
Today, Esther L. Wiggins knows that someone she trusted one hundred percent stuck a knife in her back, humiliated her, and made her look completely stupid before the people and State of Virginia.
Before you go on reading any further, I invite you to visit a few links. Like one, is a YouTube channel I created to discussing this immoral woman. Next, I will ask you to visit an online petition asking this woman to resign as family court judge. Finally, I would like to link you to a lawsuit filed in the Ninth District Court in the Western District of Washington State.
Before I continue, I must say that the lawsuit filed in the 9th District Court is a personal injury lawsuit. The Federal Courts have no business trying to remedy anything that belongs within the Family Courts. If you would like more information about the Personal Injury Lawsuit, it is Case Number C12- 0746JLR. There are also a few motions that I filed too soon. (Before defendant was properly served under rule 4). Fortunately, the Court is very fair with me. Understanding I am a pro se litigant still learning the rules of Civil Procedure, I will reserve those motions or rework them for a later date. But they are all public information.

Lets move onto the meat and potatoes of this lawsuit. This is an Intentional Tort. An Intentional Tort is a Civil Wrong resulting from an intentional action on the part of one person, to cause extreme emotional distress. The law has VERY high standards for Intentional Torts. That being said, I am not sure if my lawsuit will prevail. I entered it expecting that odds are I will not prevail. (We do the best we can even if we think we will not prevail).
Attorney William R. Falcone gave a great definition of Intentional Tort in an Avvo blog.
In order to sue somebody for this kind of Tort, that person must have done something very..very...very bad. Here is how the law reads, "so outrageous in character, and so extreme in degree, as to go beyond all possible bounds of decency, and to be regarded as atrocious, and utterly intolerable in a civilized community."
There are certainly many bad things people do to each other all the time, every day, that are great wrongs. The law cannot fix everything. We cannot sue somebody for alienation of affection, hurt feelings, deceit and deceptions that hurt our feelings. This kind of civil action should be reserved for special cases - extreme and outrageous cases.
What is an example of this kind of case? Whelp...how about my ex sending me e-mail stating that he would have me arrested at a hospital whilst undergoing a life threatening operation? Yes. That is exactly what he did.
After being diagnosed with severe abdominal adhesions, I was told never to have more children. My pregnancy was a surprise. I could not terminate the pregnancy (I will not get into those reasons in this blog, it is nobodys business why I did not terminate so I will not respond to any questions about it.). I had to make sure that the surgery was in a controlled environment. The surgical report literally read that the greatest risk was if the baby was born in an emergent situation.
I sent my daughter letters and gifts for many years - most of went unanswered because her father does not allow her to communicate with me. I finally heard from her in December. I sent her self-addressed stamped envelopes. I noticed that some of them were post marked from places other than where she lived. I suspected that she sent me letters without her father knowing.
From the letters I wrote my daughter, my ex discovered that I would be in the hospital and threatened to have me arrested there for failure to pay him child support. He sent me several e-mails saying horrible things. He sent a letter impersonating my daughter (putting her name on the envelop as if the letter came from her.) I drove all the way from Xalapa to Mexico City at the height of my pregnancy with my son, only to discover it was another letter from my ex, telling me that I could not see my daughter unless I paid him the child support order he obtained fraudulently. In the e-mails that he sent me, he signed them with my daughters name. He addressed them from my daughter to my son. It was sick...really sick....
Whelp, my daughter's father tried to place me in that emergent situation the surgical report clearly said I must avoid. I had to receive emergency medical care in Mexico. I woke up in the middle of the night hyperventilating. I was overwhelmed with fear of being in a prison hospital for failure to pay child support, with below standard doctors who would not know my condition. I was afraid that being incarcerated, I could not give my at-risk newborn the essential colostrum and breast milk he needed. I had pain, cramping, anxiety and horrific nightmares. Since I was pregnant, I could not be medicated with anything. I had to suffer through it all.
The nightmares, let me tell you about those. I have been plagued with nightmares about my daughter for thirteen years. I dream that she is lost. I dream that she is being moved around. I dream that she is calling for me and I cannot reach her. I wake up with my heart racing, and an overwhelming anger that Esther L. Wiggins took away all ability I have to protect my child. I wake up reliving that anger that I told this stupid woman this many was a psycho, and would never let me see my daughter again. Sometimes I cry. Sometimes I am too overwhelmed with sadness to cry. There is a lot of anger. A lot of anger at the wrongness, unfairness, and injustice of what these people did.
It is really hard for me to understand how one human being, like Esther Wiggins, can manage to wake up every morning and look herself in the mirror knowing what she did to me and my daughter. That is something that lives in my mind every day. How can a human do something so evil, so sick, and so cruel without any just cause. They lied about me. I invite any person to watch my YouTube videos, listen to me speak, and as yourself how I sound to you?
I was in Mexico, facing the possibility that I would bleed out on the table and die. Knowing this, my ex threatened to have me arrested at a hospital. So, what does this have to do with Esther Wiggins, and why does she deserve another blog post?
In 1999, when she rewarded that lunatic for lying to her, she said, "Yes, EK is verbally abusive, but since most French people behave this way, it is just a cultural misunderstanding." (Note that Wiggins still has not apologized to the French Authorities for that insulting remark. They were offended at the consulate in NYC. ) By saying that ridiculous thing, what she did was give EK permission to CONTINUE with the cruel, sadistic, verbally abusive behavior towards me. This mans lies grew worse, the abuse grew worse, and I am confident in saying no person, or judge, has the right to force me to communicate with EK. Doing so is cruel and unusual punishment.
After careful thought and consideration, I filed a $1,000,000. lawsuit against EK citing "extortion, blackmail, alienation of daughter affection, loss of consortium, intentional infliction of emotional distress, negligent infliction of emotional distress." This is a complex case which will require complex litigation skills from a little pro se litigant who knows very little about law. With two babies at home, I do not even have the time to go to the King County Law Library and read.
I have been diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder as a DIRECT result of EK, and his enabler - Judge Esther L. Wiggins. She facilitated and enabled this cruel behavior, behavior that is repugnant to both French and American people alike. Think about it just for a second - what kind of person would give custody of a little girl to someone like this? Not the kind of person society should want as a family Court judge.
In 1999, I testified and told Esther Wiggins that EK would shut me out of my daughters life. She did not believe me. She believed the person who was lying to her. Now that we look back at what this man did, we now know that I was telling the truth in 1999 and EK was lying. But the time is gone. The years are past. My daughter's childhood is over. There is nothing that can be done about it.
In all frankness, is Wiggins going to say, "Naomi, in 1999 you testified that EW would send your daughter to France and erase you from her life. I did not believe you. He did exactly as you said he would. I apologize, I was wrong. I should have listened to you. Now look what has happened. I enabled this mans behavior, gave him permission to continue lying and abusing, and I am sorry for it."
You know, if she apologized to me, I would probably forgive her and move on with my life. But we all know she does not have either the fairness, morality or sense of justice to do this. We all know it will never happen.
Esther Wiggins should be fired. She is an immoral heathen who ruined my daughter's childhood. She has a duty to believe the truth, and not wait until after a child has been abused and neglected for the non-custodial parent to stand up and say, "SEE! I TOLD YOU SO! I TOLD YOU SO!"
This vile creature, in her sick mind probably does not even think that she did anything wrong.
A NEW IDEA....
Instead of going over this case, I am going to propose something entirely new for us to think about. The day I learned that there were no court reporters was also the same day back in 2000 that Esther Wiggins complimented EK on his cooking. So, what can we do about it?
First I thought about setting up a fund and collecting donations. These donations would be used for campaign contributions to any Virginia Political Candidate willing to ask Wiggins to resign. I thought, "Well, we need to give elected officials a financial incentive to ask her to resign because they are not listening to all the complaints from the voters and tax payers."
Unfortunately, there are some very strict rules in place for campaign contributions. Individuals and Corporations are 'people', but raising money for a candidate requires a new set of rules. I do not think that I can do this yet. Also, a vast number of my supporters are foreigners. Foreign nationals cannot contribute to American politicians. They would have to give to me as a person, I would have to report that money as income, then give it to the candidates willing to ask Wiggins to resign. It is complicated. Would it even work? Would Virginia politicians accept campaign contributions in this situation?
Instead, I thought, "Well, I still have a large internet following. Thousands of people follow me online. My Youtube videos seen on my main channel are viewed by Thousands. I can leverage that power to collect donations, not for myself, not for lawyers who will suck the money dry, not to politicians, but to Court Reporters.
I often think how much easier my life would be if Arlington Virginia always had Court Reporters. It would be so easy for me to bury Esther Wiggins. She say one thing, then goes back and claims it wasn't said. Other women have said the same to me:
"Naomi, while we were in Court, I reminded her of what she said last time, and she said..'I never said that'...but Naomi, she did say it, I remember."
Then I ask, "Did you hire a Court Reporter?"
"No, my attorney told me not to because she would think something is up."
I responded, "Fire your lawyer. Never go into her Court Room without a Court Reporter. That is the biggest make any non-custodial parent can make."
Court Reporters typically require $250 deposit.
My thinking is this. I will start a fund asking people for donations. The donations will come from people all over the world. This is great because the pound and euro go further than the dollar. We will accept any currency. This will be a continuing, on-going process. With the funds, I will bankroll the Court Reporters. This way, any woman or man who needs one can contact me. Once I verify the Court Date, I will pay the Court Reporter.
We will be able to amass a hefty collection of court transcripts. The more we collect, the more likely we will find Wiggins doing something weird, lying, or any of her other shenanigans.
I do not think that my daughters life is the only child's life she ruined. I know that there are other parents who are shut out of their child's life. I know that Wiggins refuses to punish the culprit: male or female. Any parent that does this should be given jail.
I am not the only person who told her the truth - then called a liar. No one should feel this kind of pain. There are no words to describe this kind of pain. No one should feel this kind of injustice. It has been thirteen years, are it still lingers over my mind what this evil woman did, giving my child to a lying sociopath who abandoned my daughter with two elderly women. No person has the right to cause this kind of damage onto innocent people.
Transparency is our greatest weapon.
I am very busy with the two lawsuits, writing memos, doing legal research and taking care of my two babies at home. Like I said, I cannot even find the time to go to the King County Library to read. I want to go to the Court House and watch more trials, but with two babies, I cannot do it.
I am going to let this Court Reporter Fund marinate for awhile. Maybe get some feedback from different people. I like to think carefully about these things and make sure that they will not take away too much time from my family. It is my hope that we can improve the Court System, create fairness, and get this sick freak fired for what she did to me and my little angel.
