This could be a spoiler if you have not seen her 2014 cases. Stop reading if you haven't seen this episode and want to see it again if they run it. It has been on TV at least twice so far. I just saw the most horrendous case and ruling from this terrible judge. A young woman had religious beliefs that made her want to save sex for marriage. She told her boyfriend and they dated for 6 months and he said he "understood." Then he wanted to take her to Paris. He bought her lingerie and thought he could talk her into sex. When she said "no" again, he left her that night with half of a round-trip ticket, very little money so she couldn't stay in Paris or exchange her ticket for a different day flight to get home early. She took him to court to get the money back from the ticket exchange. She was very hurt and in tears. Judge Mablean first shouted at her to give details on what the girl WOULD let the boyfriend do. She and the boy repeatedly said, "Everything but sex." That wasn't good enough. She kept shouting and insisting that the girl should spell it out. And then asked her if this was how she "teased" the man. The young woman looked defeated and said. "sure." Mablean kept up questions about teasing the boy. Apparently in her mind, letting a man pet you or do other things is "teasing" him even if you have a prior understanding of no sex before marriage. So the Judge ruled against the girl who was left high and dry because she apparently deserved it for leading the guy on. I was appalled. Is this really what we want our young women to learn? As a women, you cannot date or engage in any physical contact unless you are willing to finish it and let the man have sex with you. Otherwise you are just teasing him. We apparently aren't allowed to have that choice. You either don't let the guy touch you (or maybe you just aren't allowed to set boundaries--but he can so he doesn't get frustrated) unless you are ready to have sex. In other words, the guys can have what they want. And what would she have ruled if he had forced himself on her? That she deserved it because she led him on? There are thousands of young woman out there who can love and have a man caress her but not have sex with her and they can have a lovely relationship and often leads up to marriage. It used to be that way for just about everyone. But now, idiots like this judge tell the men they deserve to have the sex they want because above all else, the men shouldn't be frustrated. Judge Mablean should be fired and muzzled so she doesn't hurt our young women any more than she has already.
