LAS VEGAS, NEV. (Feb. 7, 2020) – A Las Vegas dad today sued a family court judge for blocking him on Facebook.
Civil rights attorney T. Matthew Phillips today filed a federal court lawsuit against Las Vegas Family Court Judge Vincent Ochoa.
T. Matthew Phillips’ lawsuit relies on the recent ruling in the Knight case, where a federal appeals court ruled that elected officials, such as Donald Trump, cannot “block” or otherwise censor members of the general public on social media, [see Knight First Amendment Inst. at Columbia University v. Trump, No. 1:17-cv-5205 (S.D.N.Y.), No. 18-1691 (2d Cir.)].
T. Matthew Phillips, a self-styled “whistleblower,” alleges that Judge Ochoa blocked Phillips at His Honor’s Facebook page, which Phillips claims is unconstitutional. According to the complaint–
“Defendant Ochoa violates [Phillips’] substantive rights under the First Amendment: (i) the right to free speech, and (ii) the right to petition for redress.”
Phillips is also suing Clark County and State of Nevada for negligence—for failure to train elected officials to not exclude dissenting voices in a public forum. According to the complaint–
“‘But for’ their negligence in failing to train the judge on basic free speech principles, Plaintiff would not have suffered civil rights deprivations.”
The 17-page complaint is critical of Judge Ochoa’s judicial policies. Phillips believes the judge purposely avoids jury trials — a constitutional right. Phillips believes the judge does not lookout for the best interests of the children. According to the complaint–
“His Honor promotes and fosters a ‘fatherless society,’ in which the gov’t removes a parent, and then substitutes itself—in loco parentis, i.e., ‘in place of the parent,’ so that the gov’t may wield greater power and control over the lives of children, ultimately, to make them beholden to the state.”
The lawsuit seeks both money damages and injunctive relief. According to the lawsuit, Phillips requests the following legal remedies–
“[Phillips] seeks an injunction requiring Defendant Ochoa to: (i) halt the censorship on Facebook, (i.e., removal of comments); (ii) halt the “blocking” of critics on Facebook; and (iii) lift the Facebook “block” on all persons, including Phillips, so that Dept. ‘S’ litigants may visit His Honor’s pages—to ‘freely publish their sentiments on all subjects,’ as Nevada Constitution affirmatively permits, [Nev. Const., Art. 1., § 9].”
Asked whether he expects to prevail, Phillips stated: “I’m a free speech enthusiast! Win or lose, it’s fun to argue.”
Phillips added: “All I want is to see my son. But this judge will never, ever let that happen. Ya know? This judge even told me I look suicidal — but still, he refuses to let me see my son.”
What does Phillips hope to accomplish? “I’m gonna prove that this judge violated my civil rights — and then I’ll have legit grounds for disqualification — and then I’ll just cross my fingers and hope that the next judge has a small semblance of humanity.”
We had no way of reaching Judge Ochoa for comment.

I would love to talk to you about your case. Myself and another litigant have been looking for an attorney who will help us to get removal from state court and in to federal court. I also need a federal lawyer in California. The corruption in our cases will make new case law and set president. Court assisted kidnapping, due process violations, civil rights violations, falsifying documents, court concealment of records, bogus TPO orders, perjury, violations of process and procedures, Ex parte communications, holding contempt proceedings when no contempt was sited, lack of subject matter jurisdiction, defamation of character, (The Nevada Court Watchers).
Case A -I have not seen my son since August of 2019 when judge Rena Hughes gave a verbal order to sperm donor who was absent for five years permission to relocate from the bench. It’s been almost a year for his siblings ,grandparents, cousins, entire family. This was never brought up in the three hearings held She pretty much termed my rights without terming my rights. There were absolutely no findings of fact or conclusions of law. There were not even best interest factors. This is just a preview of misconduct and corruption.
Case B- Fourteen year old minor childs rights have been drastically violated. The family has not seen minor child in thirteen months. Court refuses to adjudicate paternity and has illegally withheld child from entire family. They actually barred the entire family sua sponte Based on their delusion that the non biological abuses is the mother the father and the ( Holy Ghost )
Please feel free to call, text, email whenever you can day or night. Please we have been desperate to find help. We want our children. I don’t understand how this has happened and continues to happen. Psychological ware fare on innocent children. My son is seven and has been ripped from the ONLY family he has ever known.
Please contact TMP. 🙂

Why don’t you try being an adult for once in your life and making the necessary changes to your horrible parenting skills and then go from there? You love running your mouth but the facts are clear: your son was struggling when he was with you bc of your blatant need to non-parent and he’s thriving now bc his dad actually cares about his future.
What’s your damage?
