Many people ask why James’ father hasn’t secured a second opinion. We talked about this before in a previous blog post.
This goes into further detail.
In Texas, parental rights are called conservator rights. These parental rights are specified in 153.073 Texas Family Code. Conservators have the right:
- to receive information from any other conservator of the child concerning the health, education, and welfare of the child;
- to confer with the other parent to the extent possible before making a decision concerning the health, education, and welfare of the child;
- of access to medical, dental, psychological, and educational records of the child;
- to consult with a physician, dentist, or psychologist of the child;
- to consult with school officials concerning the child’s welfare and educational status, including school activities;
- to attend school activities;
- to be designated on the child’s records as a person to be notified in case of an emergency;
- to consent to medical, dental, and surgical treatment during an emergency involving an immediate danger to the health and safety of the child; and
- to manage the estate of the child to the extent the estate has been created by the parent or the parent’s family.
Judge Kim Cooks of the 255th District Court (on Facebook, on Twitter) presided over James’ case. The court did almost everything wrong. For example, the father had to get a Writ of Mandamus just to get Judge Kim Cooks to deliver findings. In Texas, mandamus relief is denied over 90% of the time, but it was given in this case. That gives you some insight as to how this court works.
However, the court did one thing right. Judge Kim Cooks named Mr. Younger a Joint Managing Conservator. That means that James’ mother and father share the conservator rights above.
But something strange happened. Judge Kim Cooks made one weird exception to the conservator rights. Judge Kim Cooks denied the father the right to consent to psychological treatment, under conservator right number four.
Because of this unexplainable exception, James’ father has been unable to challenge the false diagnosis of gender dysphoria. To date, Ms. Georgulas, refuses to allow the father to select his own independent psychologist and psychiatrist.
Why did Judge Kim Cooks grant Ms. Georgulas this one exception? Is it just a coincidence?
Now you know why James’ father can’t get a second opinion.
