A disturbing revelation about Judge Mason in Ohio

Atlas Shrugs finds some disturbing info from Fathers 4 Justice about judge Jim Mason, the judge in Ohio who may take up the Rifqa Bary case if we don't pay enough attention:
Columbus, Ohio – December 14, 2006 – Franklin County Common Pleas Court Judge Jim Mason (R) offers a father a unique, though illegal, option to end litigation matters concerning his two minor children – “…you could shoot her.”

This, was among the options the good judge outlined for Scott Phelps, pro se litigant and F4J Ohio Coordinator (aka Superman), in how he might deal with his ex-wife. “I still do not know what to say – I am just stunned that he would say that….he is a judge,” Phelps said.

Fathers-4-Justice™ U.S. (F4J) reports that since the time Judge Mason stuck both feet firmly in his mouth he has recused himself from the Phelps case citing “…it has come to the attention of the Court that the step-mother [Judi Smith-Phelps] of the minor children has publicly defamed this judge in open court.”

“I defamed the court?” Judi Smith-Phelps, aka Superwoman, asked. “Is this guy for real?! Thousands of parents die each year in our country due to suicidal and homicidal acts stemming from cases just like this. Judge Mason’s actions are reprehensible and unethical so we are glad he is off of this case.”

Judge Mason is the third Franklin County domestic judge to recuse himself in the past six months from the Phelps case which has dragged through the courts for over five years. Judge Dana Preisse (R) is the newest judge to be assigned to the case.
Yikes, and this kind of law official is even allowed to continue to work in his job after that kind of distasteful remark? A man who does something like that should disbarred from practicing law ever again. And here I thought just Youngstown was a bad place to be in Ohio! Clearly, there is a lot wrong with that state. Rifqa Bary cannot be allowed to return to Ohio if that's the kind of judge who'll oversee the case.

Update: according to this topic on Atlas Shrugs, if I'm reading correctly, there was no actual complaint filed against the Lorenz's? In other words, it was just one of "lawyer" Elahi's ploys to have things just the way the people on his side of the spectrum want it? As Pamela tells here:
The third thing was that Elahi announced that he was filing a criminal complaint against the Lorenzes. A couple of astute newspaper reporters actually checked with the police department, and they said they had no investigation going on. So apparently Shaytan Elahi just wrote this letter, and now everybody is making a big deal about it. The stupid media didn't even cover it right, but a couple of reporters did get it right. And apparently it's just a letter Elahi wrote -- the police are not doing anything with it. Even the FDLE cleared the Lorenzes and said that there was no criminal wrongdoing with anyone they looked at -- and they interviewed the Lorenzes extensively.
This shows just how dishonest Elahi really is.

Update 2: here's another article by John D. Guandolo in Human Events about the case.
