Records Sealed In Maryland Custody Case With SC Connections

FITSNEWS.COM BLASTED FOR ITS ROLE … REFERRED TO AS AN “OVER THE TOP PUBLICATION” 

Attorneys for Brad Eckstrom – the son of S.C. comptroller general Richard Eckstrom – have successfully moved to seal court records in Maryland following coverage of related public documents by FITSNews.com (a.k.a. the website you are currently reading).

It’s all part of this case … in which the 39-year-old politician’s son (who had a criminal domestic violence rap expunged less than two years ago) is seeking full custody of the daughter he had with Blair Pettrey.

Brad Eckstrom is seeking custody despite records showing that as of earlier this year he had paid absolutely nothing toward the care of the infant girl.

Yeah … no wonder they want this file sealed.

Brad Eckstrom’s attorney reached out to seal the records after our post was published.  In fact, the attorney specifically referenced FITSNews.com as an “over the top publication.”

“We are very concerned about the very public reference to the parties’ daughter in such an over the top publication,” Brad Eckstrom’s attorney wrote.

Over the top publication?

Really?

Let’s not forget this is the same infant girl that Richard Eckstrom reportedly accused this website’s founding editor of fathering (well …at least until the paternity test came through).

Yet we’re the ones who are “over-the-top?”

That’s funny …

It’s also curious these records were sealed on behalf of the son of a politician who has repeatedly boasted of his commitment to transparency in government.  In fact in 2009, Richard Eckstrom proclaimed a “Year of Transparency” in the Palmetto State.

Apparently that doesn’t apply to his own “family values.”

Richard Eckstrom’s star-crossed affair with a Midlands-area school teacher has produced courtroom battlespolice reports, allegations of sexually transmitted diseases, wedding rings for sale on Craigslist as well as campaign finance abuse charges related to him paying for his mistress’ travel to the 2012 Republican National Convention.

Oh, and the creepy texts and emails he sent to his on-again, off-again lover have become the stuff of Palmetto political legend (and not in a good way).

 

Anyway, we will continue to follow this case as best we can in light of the court’s decision to seal these records.

Maybe when he said “over the top”, he meant in the context of you boinking Blair and fathering a love child.

Ugh! They should seal those two douche bags, “Father and Grandfather “, from that poor child’s life. What trainwreck of a mess.

For anyone at all inside or connected in any way to the fucked-up YECHSTROM family to refer to anyone else as “over the top” is … well … it’s just over the top.

Jus the name Eckstrom is becoming rather nasty. These two are the worst example of “entitled” ruling class losers in the entire state. I mean, even Sanford had the decency to divorce bones and pay up child support. And he was rewarded nicely with the hottie.

What Bradley and Dick don’t understand is they be playin’ in a Maryland court, not some cracker court in SC.

Judge: “Has your client made any child support payments.”

Attorney: “You Honor, my client is fully prepared to provide adequately for his daughter as soon as he is awarded custody.”

Judge: “Let’s try again, has – your – client – made – any – child – support – payments!!”

Attorney: “Your Honor, my client is from a well known family in SC. His father is currently a big dick in SC politics. A real well known somebody.”

Judge: (Laughing out loud) “I’m going to ask you one more time. Has your client paid any child support payments.”

Attorney: “My client is well prepared to-”

Judge: “Is your client here?”

Attorney: “Yes your Honor.”

Judge: “I sentence your client to 45 days in jail, or until such time he has paid all outstanding child support payments. I will hereby issue a warrent for his immediate arrest. If you do not provide your client to the authorities within 12 hours you will be held in contempt of court and fined. I award custody to the mother. Because your client has failed to show any responsibility, and because of those stupid text messages I read on FITS about the grandfather, visitation will only occur in the state of Maryland, overseen by the authorities in a supervised setting. Sir, you’re clients are dumber than dirt, and honestly, I would prefer if they never, ever, return to this state again. They have in fact, blemished your outstanding legal reputation.”

Child Support Agency Forms : The following are all replies that women have put on Child Support Agency forms in the section listing a father’s details:
————————————————-

Regarding the identity of the father of my twins, child A was fathered by Jim Munson. I am unsure as to the identity of the father of child B, but I believe that he was conceived on the same night.

I am unsure as to the identity of the father of my child as I was being sick out
of a window when taken unexpectedly from behind. I can provide you with a list of names of men that I think were at the party if this helps.

I do not know the name of the father of my little girl. She was conceived at a
party at 3600 Grand Avenue where I had unprotected sex with a man I met that night. I do remember that the sex was so good that I fainted. If you do manage to track down the father can you send me his phone number? Thanks.

I don’t know the identity of the father of my daughter. He drives a BMW that now has a hole made by my stiletto heel in one of the door panels. Perhaps you can contact BMW service stations in this area and see if he’s had it replaced.

I cannot tell you the name of child A’s dad as he informs me that to do so would blow his cover and that would have cataclysmic implications for the national economy. I am torn between doing right by you and right by the country. Please advise.

Peter Smith is the father of child A. If you do catch up with him can you ask him what he did with my Grateful Dead CDs?

From the dates it seems that my daughter was conceived at Disney World. Maybe it really is the Magic Kingdom.

So much about that night is a blur. The only thing that I remember for sure is Julia Child did a program about eggs earlier in the evening. If I’d have stayed in and watched more TV rather than going to the party at 146 Miller Drive, mine might have remained unfertilized.

I am unsure as to the identity of the father of my baby, after all when you eat a
can of beans you can’t be sure which one made you fart.
