On this episode of The Federalist Radio Hour, actor, producer, and director Greg Ellis joins Culture Editor Emily Jashinsky to discuss his book “The Respondent: Exposing the Cartel of Family Law.”
“Family law is the one branch of our legal system I found out that doesn’t provide a presumption of innocence. So, in essence, that means that partners, spouses, parents, good law-abiding citizens aren’t afforded the same rights that criminals get,” Ellis said. “That astounded me and I think many people aren’t aware of this. I wasn’t. I was ignorant, completely oblivious until this happened to me.”
The push for social justice, Ellis said, is popular right now but he thinks men often get overlooked.
“Everyone should be presumed innocent until proven guilty. The presumption of innocence,” Ellis said. “But I think more and more that’s not happening and that’s more and more not happening with men.”
