Slam the Gavel welcomes back Marineka Bowman and Nick Giles to the podcast. They were last on Season 3, Episode 159. We discussed several topics including the definition of a Kangaroo Court as well as what Family Court puts families through, using them as pawns for money, traumatizing children.
Also discussed was the subject of IIED. Intentional Infliction of Emotional Distress. This is a civil tort from common law and is a gap filler tort. IIED is an acronym for Intentional Infliction of Emotional Distress sometimes called tort of outrage. There is also what is called negligent infliction of emotional distress or NIED. Sometimes emotional distress is caused unintentionally which is still at best negligence and should be held accountable.
Since IIED is a filler tort meaning it fills the gaps of other laws and claims. Some examples are defamation, psychological abuse/Parental Alienation, frivolous lawsuits, malicious prosecution and negligent misrepresentation. Intentional infliction of emotional distress (IIED) generally involves some kind of conduct that is so terrible that it causes severe emotional trauma to the victim. In such cases, the victim can recover damages from the person causing the emotional distress. Courts are more likely to allow recovery when the emotional distress is accompanied by some form of physical injury resulting from the defendant's conduct.
Marineka remains strong in her stance of not engaging with the court system. Nick Giles was excellent in explaining IIED and the dysfunctional court system.
