And this time he's not giving the father a hard time. In point of fact this father -- who has a million dollar income and who is living in $11M NYC Upper East Side digs -- has never even had to submit a financial affidavit or statement of income pertaining to his teenage daughter's child support. He allegedly owes approximately $100,000.00 as four years ago he stopped paying the $23,000.00 per annum they agreed to ten years ago. Note that the $23,000.00 is far less than the statutorily-suggested 25% of income. And the mother is not even seeking alimony, palimony or any of that. A gold digger she is not. But what the heck, if cheap is good, then free is even better, I guess. I favor a finding of material breach and novation, so Mr. Klein can start paying the full statutory share, yah.
PS: Judge Kagan also refused cameras in court, in blatant contravention of Rule 1:19
We'll be there again, and I am forwarding this blawg entry to him so that he has advance notice pursuant to section (e).
A judge shall permit broadcasting, televising, electronic recording, or taking photographs of proceedings open to the public in the courtroom by the news media for news gathering purposes and dissemination of information to the public, subject, however, to the following limitations:
(e) A judge should require reasonable advance notice from the news media of their request to be present to broadcast, to televise, to record electronically, or to take photographs at a particular session. In the absence of such notice, the judge may refuse to admit them.
