What Happened To Judge Mablean Ephiam Of Divorce Court?
I Have Been A Fan Of This Show For A Few Years And Judge Mablean Kick *** Good! So What Happened To Her?? Did She Retire Or Something? I Went To Watch It The Other Day And There Was A New Judge. What Gives?
Canned 'Divorce Court' Judge Cries Racism
Mablean says her hair may have done her in
By TMZ.COM STAFF
(April 7) -- Mablean Ephriam, who until recently presided over the syndicated television show 'Divorce Court," says that she was given her walking papers from the show, in part because FOX would not cut her slack when it came to styling her hair. "...When will FOX and the rest of America accept our cultural differences as African Americans and embrace us with all of our different hairstyles, hair textures, hair color..." she said in a "press conference statement."
FOX gave Mablean the boot after seven years because they say Mablean was asking for a lot more money than the network was willing to shell out. TMZ is told two million a year was not enough for Mablean, so FOX said farewell.
Mablean's statement veers away from salary and onto hairier issues. She says "the most unacceptable demand to me was when FOX said, 'There will be no changes in the current hairstyle to avoid time consuming issues regarding her hair." She believes FOX's position could violate Federal law, calling it "a racial and ethnic issue."
Mablean rhetorically asks why her hair was suddenly an issue: "Because of my ethnicity - African American, Black, *****, whatever term you prefer to use."'
Mablean adds that she wore a wig last season after losing a substantial amount of hair because of a chemical process gone bad. She feels that FOX wanted her to continue wearing a wig to save time in taping the show.
The former TV judge said there was another issue -- she did not want to tape as many as eight cases a day because "divorce is a very emotional issue." She was also upset that FOX would no longer pay for the show's holiday luncheon .
Finally, Mablean suggests FOX went after her personal assistant Princess and her daughter Darlene Allen (who ran the wardrobe department) by also firing them.
Mablean is being replaced by Lynn Toler, an ex-Ohio judge. Toler is also African American.
'Divorce Court' is produced by Twentieth Television, a division of FOX Entertainment Group. TMZ is awaiting an official response from Twentieth.

What Exactly Is A Trial Lawyer?
I'M Gonna Be Plain And Simple. I'M 15 Years Old And When I'M Older I Want To Put Bad Guys Away As A Lawyer. I Wanna Make My City A Better Place. It'S Turned To Crap. Lawyers Are Corrupt And So Are The Courts. However I Need To Also Make A Nice Living. What'S A Prosecuting Lawyer Vs A Trial Lawyer? And Yes I Am Well Aware Being A Lawyer Isint As Glamorous As Hollywood Makes It Seem.
Unless you live in an extremely bad city like Chicago, Detroit, or New York, the lawyers and judges in your city are going to be among the most reliable people you could meet. When we're hired, we are required by law to represent our clients to the best of our ability. Sometimes that means taking positions on our clients' behalf that seem unsavory, but that does not mean we are corrupt. There are always bad lawyers and bad judges, but generally we care very, very much about upholding the law and making sure the system works the way it's supposed to. We care about our profession and members who make us look bad are dealt with.
"Trial lawyers" are basically the people who are extremely experienced at going into court and deal with that side of things as opposed to writing briefs, dealing with pre-trial matters, or working on transactional stuff like contracts. If you're good, you can live very comfortably.
A prosecutor is a lawyer who works for the state in criminal prosecutions. You do spend plenty of time in a courtroom, but you also are responsible for pre-trial issues like admissibility of evidence. Prosecutors, being state employees, are paid very poorly.
What Are Our Odds In This Court Case? Lawyers???
My Hubby Was Served With A Small Claims Case On An Item That Was Charged Off. Here Are Some Key Facts:
The Amount Was Originally $689 And That Is How It Is Reported On His Credit Reports.
We Just Found Out About This Item A Few Months Back And Wrote To The Creditor Requesting Documentation And Validation Of The Debt. They Failed To Do So And Just Went Ahead And Filed A Small Claims Case Against Him.
We Have The Document That We Sent Requesting The Information That They Obviously Used To Have Him Served The Papers (We Had Not Heard From Them Regarding This Item Prior And It Was For Something That Was Apparently Bought Over 3 Years Ago).
The Amount They Are Trying To Sue Him For Is Over 3 Times The Amount Of The Original Item They Say They Charged Off.
I Am Just Curious What Our Odds Are Of At The Very Least Getting Them To Settle With Us Through The Small Claims Court If They Are Able To Produce The Proof We Asked For?
If they produce the proof you asked for or not - either way, they are going to have to provide documentation for the court pertaining to the original amount that was delinquent, and all other charges/fees assessed that made the charge off over 3 times what the original amount was. If they have no proof documenting the validity of their case/claim - then it's your word against theirs entirely. (Also remember, when a company charges off a debt owed to them, they by law can tack on all assessed standard business applicable fees pertaining to the account in which they are charging off. This can be late fees, OD/NSF fees, early close/termination fees, and in some cases filing/notice fees)
Having that said, having just a copy of the request you sent them does not prove that they received the letter. I know you feel they used the address info. from that correspondence to then subpoena you, however there are many ways creditors can figure out where you live. Any other correspondence you have with them via mail need to be sent via certified mail. This way you have a signature with date and time to show they got the letter and chose to ignore it.
As far as the FCRA (Fair Credit Reporting Act) - they didn't violate it by not providing you with any information upon your request. It's the consumer credit reporting agencies that are held liable if they do not provide response. They can only tell you what they were old though. If you chose to dispute the reporting, they then go back to the person who reported it originally through a 3rd party mediation service and mitigate additional information that may not have been available when the reporting was originally done.
To answer the first part of your question - small claims court is there to settle small disputes between seperate entities. But if they win.....you owe all of what they're awarded - and there isnt really a "pay as you go" plan for small claims court. You usually have to pay it all within a certain period of time, or there is a warrant issued for your arrest. If you meant in your question "settle" meaning settle for a lesser amount, settle out of court, settle through a payment plan: your best bet is to call them, speak with someone in their collections/escalations department and be an active participant in discussing fully resolving the issue prior to the court date. In this instance, if you make some alternate resolution with the creditor directly, small claims has no need to resolve the issue, because it's already done. The creditor drops the case, court is canceled, and you can begin repayment. Make sure though - when you do get the charge off paid in full - the creditor reports the repayment in full so it doesn't hang on your credit report as unpaid.
Hope this helps!!

How Many Hours Does Lawyers Work Per Day ?
Most lawyers work 10 hours a day 365 days a year. They have to in order to have enough billable hours from clients to make any money. They have no personal time off for family, entertainment, or recreation. That's why 60% of lawyers quit or change jobs after the first year. It's a crummy job with a huge debt from student loans that take a lifetime to pay off.
I Need To Get In Touch With The Senior Child Support Attorney For Mississippi By Email Anyone Have It?
My Ex Is Dodging The Child Support Office And They Are Saying That They Cannot Find Him To Serve Him. So Since I Have All Of His Information I Would Like To Email It To Him Along With The Information Of The New House He Just Bought.
DONT email it to him. he probably gets THOUSANDS of spam emails just like all of us do.
Treat this information with the importance that it deserves.
Send a copy of this information REGISTERED mail to his office. Sure it will cost you $5.00 or so but it will be so worth it.
Also, purchasing houses is public record. Go to the courthouse and verify that HE did in fact buy the house (and that his mother didn't buy it and/or it is not rent to own etc)
if he did, the child support enforcement office (or whatever it is called there) can put a lien on the property!
Best of luck to you
my sympathies to your child -how sad that his/her father won't help to support him/her, but will purchase a home for himself
