Kelly Rutherford issues a statement about judge's decision regarding her children

"What the judge did yesterday was shocking, illegal, and abusive to my children. Without any legal authority, a judge from the lowest ranking court in the state court system violated the highest ranking federal constitutional rights of my American citizen children," Rutherford said in her statement. "Judge Ellen Gesmer effectively arrested my children, claiming she had authority under habeas corpus to take them into custody because of a foreign country's court order."

"...Knowing she had no authority, Judge Gesmer seized my children and their U.S. passports, and forced them to leave the United States and reside in Monaco, a country where neither they nor I, nor even their father, has citizenship," she continued. "The children's father didn't care enough about his children to be here himself. Contrary to his many false claims, he, like all German citizens, can come to this country anytime on his German passport. But he didn't bother." (He can't because you lied and had him declared a terrorist and got his passport revoked you asshole)

"I did my best to comfort the children, but there are no words to help children understand why a judge would be so cruel," she stated. "We asked the State Department for help, but they claimed there was nothing any federal official could do. That response was curious given that non-citizen children receive help from the U.S. government all the time to ensure that they are not forced to leave the United States ... The State Department claimed it had no role, and there was nothing it could do to protect the illegal removal of American children from their own country, even when they were being forced to live in a nation where neither the children nor either parent has citizenship."

After some more rambling about how them being American and only American and needing to live in America she went on to accuse her ex of being a liar.

"When the children's father filed papers this week demanding that the children be taken into custody, he told Judge Gesmer there was an emergency and that he did not know the whereabouts of the children, or whether they were safe. That was a lie. I told him in writing repeatedly that the children were in New York, safe with me. He Skyped with the children and talked to them many times during the periods when he claimed he did not know the their whereabouts, or whether they were safe. It was all lies to persuade the court to issue an emergency order," she claimed. "...The following morning, I filed my response explaining the myriad legal reasons why the judge had no authority to take custody of my children or their U.S. passports, much less to command them to leave their own country. The judge did not listen to one word I said and instead demanded that the children immediately be taken from my custody, and handed over to the lawyers for delivery to an airport. It was the most cruel act against a child I have ever witnessed in my entire life and the fact that it happened to American children at the hands of an American judge, in a United States courtroom is just inconceivable."

She then spouted out a bunch of laws and claimed that her ex violated them and previous agreements, conveniently leaving out that the agreements were not considered valid and that she had violated several and was unwilling to compromise. She then claimed the judge had no idea how law works, had no understanding of the law and was basically incompetent and allowing people to partake in illegal activities before she ended with the following statement.

"As for Judge Gesmer, she has to live with herself, and if she has a conscience, I suspect she will not sleep well, ever again."
