• The PPJ Gazette
For over six years, the Golins have been fighting for the safe return of their daughter, who was put under conservatorship in a hearing fraught with fraud and false testimony on the part of the state. Along the way, Jeff and Elsie Golin were arrested and charged with abusing their daughter, in what appears to be an attempt to intimidate them from pursuing her return. All charges were subsequently dropped, while the state continued to pursue conservatorship. In 2003, the Golins filed a civil rights lawsuit for recovery of damages against those they allege have harmed Nancy, naming County of Santa Clara, San Andreas Regional Center, City of Palo Alto, Stanford Hospital and others.
The suit has been riddled with delays. Every single Judge in Santa Clara County recused himself from the case when Governor Schwarzenegger appointed one of the Golin’s defendants to the bench there. Then, in 2007, Supreme Court Justice Ronald George appointed Judge Michael Byrne to hear the case.
