These types of orders are commonplace in family law matters. In California which is quite liberal in protecting the children by any means might have come down differently than Massachusetts. However, this ruling definitely opens the flood gates for parents to write how they feel about the other parent without any restrictions or thought about how it might hurt the other parent and the child in the long run.
The Family law court already stands in the place of a parent. They are forced to make parental decisions that the biological parent cannot make on their own. Thus the creation of the family law court. Question remains what is the balance of the authority of the Court as a representative as the good parent and the parents right to destroy the other parent through social media or other means. The real life dilemma is very constant in the court setting. the animosity and vitriol between the parties is thick and dirty. How does a Judge who has no relation to the parents effectively place boundaries on parents who are essentially acting like children. and bad ones at that.
