Courts on the side of women

I just found this on John Kerry's campaign web site:
Now more than ever, we need a president who will put the American government and legal system back on the side of women.
The courts are already on the side of women. Before my court appearance on Friday, I sat thru another case of a couple with a custody fight. The judge received an evaluation requiring the father to attend sobriety classes, drug testing, and I don't know what else, just to get one hour of supervised visitation per week. The father accepted it, and was browbeaten into confessing guilt and remorse. Just when it looked like a done deal, the mother asked for a custody trial! The judge had to explain to her that the deal was extremely favorable to her, and that it was hard to imagine getting a better deal, except maybe to terminate the father's rights altogether.
