As my investigation of St. Louis County continues there is a name which has stayed largely under the radar, which deserves more scrutiny: Brian Dunlop.
Dunlop is an attorney and Guardian ad Litem in St. Louis County, and he's already the subject of a critical website entitled, "My Case With Brian Dunlop".
At the site, a male litigant describes how Dunlop violated numerous procedures in a blatantly biased manner and steered the case so that his ex-wife got physical custody unfairly, while he was rendered with a custody arrangement which was impossible to manage.
In one especially egregious event, Dunlop allowed for the man's daughter to be questioned alone by his ex-wife's attorney for a half hour shortly before a court hearing.
Approximately 30 minutes prior to my daughter taking the stand in trial, Brian Dunlop approved a request by Mother’s attorney to question my daughter alone and without counsel (that being Brian Dunlop) present. My daughter had wanted nothing to do with Mother’s current suit. Brian fully knew this. He definitely knew that she did not want to be trapped into an interrogation by her attorney. My daughter was completely intimidated in this spontaneous interrogation. My daughter had no idea that she could leave at any time because Brian Dunlop failed to tell her. She further had no idea that she did not have to answer any of the questions because Brian Dunlop failed to tell her. Given that her “guardian” had led her into this slaughter without any advice, she had no way of knowing what rights she did or did not have. Further, it wasn’t like Mother’s attorney was some rookie that just passed the bar. Mother’s attorney had previously served on the family court bench for over 20 years and is fully seasoned at the art of intimidation. That’s right. My 13 year old daughter was left alone in a room to be grilled by one of the most experienced, ruthless, and vicious family law attorney’s Missouri has to offer right before taking the stand as a witness. All this was made possible by Brian Dunlop serving as the great protector of my children during court proceedings.
Dunlop also violated privacy laws, he alleged.
Opinion: Privilege/confidentiality is the foundation of our entire legal system. Without it, we have no legal system. This meant nothing to Brian when it came to preserving my children’s rights and the promise he made to them. I assure you there were plenty of negative comments they had to say about their mother. Given the open book that resulted from their meetings, I wonder what he told their mother about the discussions he had with my children. That would not be good at all, but apparently that is no concern to Brian.
This second violation appears to be part of another pattern of behavior by St. Louis County Deep State actors.
In the now much talked about lawsuit filed by Evita Tolu, the lawsuit also alleges that several court actors violated privacy rights by sharing privileged information.
In that lawsuit, Elaine Pudlowski, the GAL in that case, released without authorization a psychological evaluation.
Dunlop and the alleged Child Molestation Case
Dunlop also plays a significant role in another alleged child molestation case.
This Dunlop case fits several emerging patterns within St. Louis County. As in Tolu's case and several others, the child disclosed sexual abuse by her father; as in those cases, Dunlop and others covered up the sexual abuse.
The mother was psychologically evaluated by Dr. James Reid and he diagnosed her with borderline personality disorder (BPD) and subsequently accused her of parental alienation (PA).
That PA would take on the form of coaching her daughter to say abuse.
She told me she is one of four people, including Tolu, to be diagnosed with BPD and PA by Reid; abuse was alleged in all the cases, and the PA coaching would explain the abuse.
Tolu's lawsuit lists nearly ten cases with a similar pattern, involving Reid.
Here is the two part interview with this St. Louis County mom.
Another parent told Plaintiff that Pudlowski recommended that Court award custody to a father despite the father's record of medical abuse and neglect of the children. Pudlowski also interfered with the DFS investigation in that case and never reported to the court the scientific evidence which proved children were poisoned. Pudlowski talked about this case with Plaintiff and told Plaintiff that Reid, Van Luven, and WCPA diagnosed mother to be delusional. Pudlowski disclosed the mother's protected private medical to Plaintiff, who Plaintiff did not know at the time, in violation of the Court orders in that case.
Pudlowski disclosed private medical information in four cases cited in the lawsuit; in this case, Pudlowski used Reid's delusional diagnosis to recommend sole custody to the father, according to the lawsuit.
Judge Mondonna Ghasedi
The judge in the Dunlop case is Mondonna Ghasedi. She went along with everything Reid and Dunlop claimed; in an emergency fashion and without holding a hearing, Ghasedi changed custody and barred the girl's mother from seeing her daughter entirely on October 17, 2017.
She said that Judge Ghasedi referred to her as "despicable" when the court went off the record.
There is very little available on Judge Ghasedi.
She is also the subject of this bit of publicity done by the public affairs arm of the courts.
Ms. Remis did not respond to my email for comment.
