Clark County Nevada
October 2, 2020
Amy Mastin, a Family Court Hearing Master, is now running for Family Court Judge Department “M.”
MASTIN’S TRACK RECORD
Mastin passed the Nevada State Bar in 1994. In 1996, she was a law clerk for Judge, Gerald W. Hardcastle. Before becoming a Hearing Master, she was a Clark County Family Violence Commissioner.
CRITICISMS of MASTIN
Mastin’s peer group has harsh words for her. Some attorneys had critical sentiments, including one attorney who stated: “She is always angry and takes it out on the litigants.” Another attorney stated: “Her demeanor is an area she has a challenge with.”
One attorney stated that he personally witnessed her berating a female litigant in TPO (Temporary Protection Order) court. Mastin apparently told the woman that she should have investigated whether her ex-husband was going to hurt her (or not). But this just sounds crazy!
BLOOD on the PAVEMENT
Then there was the Vietnamese couple. Back in 2015, the couple was in Clark County Family Court. For several years, there was constant physical abuse from the father. There was documented choking, by the father, of the 14 and the 9-year old children.
The mother successfully obtained several TPOs against the father; these TPOs were granted by other judges (not Mastin). And then the matter came in front of Master Mastin.
Remarkably, Master Mastin DENIED a TPO for the mother! Although it’s unclear exactly why…
Apparently, the mother’s TPO application alleged incidents that took place in Ohio, with no recent allegations of misconduct in Las Vegas, and therefore, the mother’s TPO application apparently did not meet Mastin’s statutory requirements; (but wait, since when were statutory requirements ever a deterrent to issuing TPO’s?).
And then, one bright sunny day in June 2016, the father straight-up killed the mother in front of Walgreens. A terrible tragedy.
The father then went to the home where his three children were living. The father killed all three children—and then he committed suicide. This numbs the senses; it’s all terribly sad.
The bottom line is that Amy Mastin should be nowhere near families or children. Period! She is responsible for the death of the mother, the three children, and the father who never got the help he needed.
IN HER OWN WORDS
The most damning thing about Amy Mastin, you guessed it, is “Amy Mastin”. In her own words, Master Mastin explains—
“Personally, I’ve been a single mom, I’ve been divorced, I have a stepson, I have an excellent relationship with the father of my children, and a challenging one with the mother of my stepson.” (Say What’?)
How come Mastin gets to disparage her ex’s spouse? Shouldn’t Mastin be bridled by a prior restraint of speech—cleverly disguised as “behavior” order?
Mastin explains, “Both personally and professionally, I have lived the gamut of family court tragedy, so to speak. You’d be surprised how valuable that experience is to a family court judge.”
Mastin believes she is qualified to be a family court judge simply because her entire life has been devoted to family court drama, and further, she’s also a willing participant in a family court drama. This is frightening!
Hasn’t Mastin had enough family court drama for one lifetime? It’s kind of like devoting one’s life to perpetuating Holocaust drama after having been a victim of Holocaust drama.
Who would knowingly devote their life to waste, horror, and degradation?—after having been dragged through the mud of waste, horror, and degradation? Amy Mastin, that’s who!
One thing’s for sure—Amy Mastin has blood on her hands. She is responsible for the death of a mother and her three kids, along with a father who never got the help he needed. Why?—because Mastin doesn’t care. She’s too busy immersing herself in the self-indulgence and debauchery we call “family court.”
LYNN HUGHES for FAMILY COURT DEPT. ‘M’
Lynn Hughes, on the other hand, is a stand-up candidate. Hughes is “in it” to “win it!” And that’s why Veterans in Politics, International supports Lynn Hughes for Clark County Family Court Judge, Dept. “M.”
