Meeting scheduled to discuss Family Court problems

A meeting has been scheduled between state court administration and interested parties in regard to allegations of problems with (R) Oswego County Family Court Judge Kim Seager.

Oswego County Department of Social Services Commissioner Gregg Heffner confirmed that a meeting has been scheduled for June 15 and will be attended by “all interested parties.”

Those parties include Heffner, school superintendents and Legislature Chairman Fred Beardsley.

In February, Beardsley went public with concerns over the handling of child protective cases by Seager. A special executive session was called with school superintendents and legislators to address the concerns.

Those involved expressed concerned that Seager sometimes sends children back to parents or guardians who are not fit to receive them.
