Judge Lewis Restricts All Contact and Communication With Katie
The order states:
"The court finds that evidence exists to indicate that Edward and Michele Wernecke have actively prevented Katie's treatment from occuring through their contact with their daughter. The Court finds that Edward and Michele Wernecke have placed extreme pressure on Katie to not comply with the treatment plan devised for treatment of her cancer."
Now I want to know, what evidence? There was no evidence presented at this hearing. Edward and Michele did not testify at this hearing, nor have they ever been allowed to speak (except on June 15 hearing). The hearing was never concluded because Judge Lewis had a heart attack. So how can the Judge rule on the evidence when there isn't any? Is the Judge ruling as a dictator from the bench? That is not the way our courts are supposed to function. The Judge spoke to Katie privately in Houston. The Judge spoke to the doctors privately. Should not the attorneys from each side been present? Is the Judge now siding with CPS and not judging on the facts and evidence in the case?
