Quote: “It’s viewed as a last-ditch measure,” said top family law attorney Christopher C. Melcher. “Questioning a judge’s integrity is a serious accusation, which carries the risk of alienating the person who will decide custody and other issues. Angelina must have decided that was a risk worth taking.”
