Skip to comments.Seattle Times special report: Twisted ethics of an expert witness
Posted on 06/26/2011 10:54:56 AM PDT by vmpolesov
Earlier this year, a four-page document with a bland title, "Stipulation for Dismissal with Prejudice," was filed in a civil matter percolating on the King County Courthouse's ninth floor. Hardly anyone took notice. Most everyone had moved on.
But that document filed by lawyers tangled up in the estate of Stuart Greenberg, a nationally renowned psychologist whose life ended in scandal signaled the end of a tortuous undertaking.
Greenberg had proved such a toxic force a poison coursing through the state's court system that it took more than three years for lawyers and judges to sift through his victims and account for the damage done.

Looks like the officials at Occidental College and Columbia University are under similar constraints.
In a nutshell, what did this Guy do?
He made a lot of money as an expert witness in child custody cases. He had a disciplinary record from the 1980s that he managed to get sealed. Many of the decisions based on his ‘expert witness testimony’ are now being questioned and reversed.
A psychologist with twisted ethics?
Ethics are largely beyond them.
They don’t have ethics.
Agendas, yes. The do have agendas, usually queer ones, too.
WOW! What a story! Thanks for posting it.
here’s an example of this guy’s ethics - videotaping his female employees in the restroom:
“His staff became suspicious. On July 3, a psychologist who worked for Greenberg devised a test. She placed an aerosol can in front of the purifier. If this device was a camera, this would block the view. Within half an hour, Greenberg entered the bathroom, shut the door, and moved the can.
In a scene caught on videotape, he then fiddled with the lens, stared into his camera, smiled and masturbated.”
Greenberg was just another evil malevolent servant of satan who profitably conspired with the legal system to destroy the lives of the good and decent.
Nothing especially extraordinary or unusual about him.
“Forensic Pyschologist”. What a frigging joke. May as well use a ouija board as listen to that claptrap.
Installed a peek camera in his employee bathroom was how he got caught.
did he only screw Father’s with his false testimony?
or would he take anyone’s money?
when a child and house are at state, fake expert testimony is a bargain.
(i once did a little research. the % of court cases for wives alleging domestic violence
(ZERO evidence required in most states. just her word.),
and subsequent “contempt of court” when “protective orders” were even accidently violated when the Father tried to visit his child, is insane.
...a HUGE amount of state budgets is devoted to this.
nationally, it’s about a 30 billion a year industry.)
He’d screw anyone for the fees he charged. Though it’s a medium long article, I found it worth the read!
In court, testifying, Greenberg described Graden as "quasi-psychotic," but said the diagnosis was tricky, because Graden might appear "quite normal." She would likely deny doing anything wrong to her son, Greenberg said, or alternatively, she "might genuinely not remember."
It looks as though he was am equal opportunity crook. No doubt money was the motivation, but not clear from the article that it was pay to play.
Thanks for posting.
What a terrible story of evil and corruption. This expert witness took children away from one parent to another and evidently represented the Seattle archdiocese in priest abuse cases. Then this coward kills himself so as to save himself even further embarrassment and accountability (e.g. righting wrongs). He was worse than a Judas and harmed dozens if not hundreds of victims.
