Judge Gorcyca disqualified from Tsimhoni custody case

- The judge who notoriously put three children in juvenile jail has now been disqualified from the case.

The Michigan Judicial Tenure Commission recently filed a formal complaint against Judge Lisa Gorcyca, citing misconduct in office.

The judge said she would not recuse herself -- because she didn't believe she did anything wrong.

FOX 2 has learned another judge from the Oakland County Courthouse will be appointed.

Judge Gorcyca made headlines across the world when she ordered the children to juvenile detention facility when they refused a court order to have lunch with their father in July.

She ordered the children, ages 14, 10, and 9, to Children's Village until they turn 18. She then sent them to a summer camp and counseling at a cost of more than $30,000, which the parents paid for.

In August, she granted temporary custody to the children's father. Mother Maya Tsimhoni who the judge blames for years of parental alienation, has not been allowed to have contact with her children.

Since Gorcyca sent the kids to Children's Village, many online support groups formed seeking justice for the Tsimhoni children.

In previous custody hearings, Gorcyca told the children they would be locked away at Children's Village until they are 18 and forced to go to the bathroom in public.

She also said the oldest child is like Charlie Manson's cult and circling her finger around her temple as if to indicate he's crazy and told the children they had been brainwashed.
