What the heck is going on in King County family court?

When family court reaches levels of self-parody: man's first wife kills his children. She pleads temporary insanity, implausibly blames Prozac for deaths, escapes criminal punishment. Man remarries, has more kids, divorces, takes up again with killer of his first children. Second ex-wife has no luck in family court expressing reluctance leaving kids with child-killer.

Meanwhile, in the same jurisdiction, a horrifically crooked expert in the same family court jurisdiction got disciplinary records sealed, and had a reign of terror harassing women as an evaluator in child-custody cases. If he hadn't been caught videotaping his employees using the restroom, he might still be running amuck in family court. [Seattle Times via OL]
