This is but the first in a series of articles about Barbara J. Lerian owner of Metro Mediation, St Paul MN.  



LET THE PUBLIC BEWARE; Barbara J. Lerian is owner of Metro Mediation LLC is a qualified neutral on the state roster (meaning no degree or license) that by exploiting ADR (Alternative Dispute Resolution) and engages in frauds and misconduct with intent to defeat justice and deny rights, and does so in the interest of fees.

Barbara J Leirans acts violate a number of state and federal laws, yet this has apparently gone unnoticed by authorities who cannot seem to believe that anyone especiallya Rule 114 neutral could ever behave so corruptly. Be that as it may, the public nevertheless needs to be alerted to beware of Barbara J Leiran of Metro Mediation, who exploits ADR for improper purpose and personal gain.   



For the past six years I have suffered Barbara J Leirans pervasive pattern of fraudulent and deceptive practices and been unable to escape. But for Barbara J Leirans scheming it is highly likely the father

and I might still even be friends.  But to my horror I have watched Barbara J Leiran tear my family apart by fabricating false conflicts which she then arbitrates rather than mediates and for which she charges usurious ADR fees.

Now I find Barbara J Leiran was in fact never appointed PTE by the court in my family law matter.  Dispite the case ending in 2008,  to this day Barbara J. Lerian refuses to stand down and continues to engage in harms and extortions in defance of of rule and law, and despite being proven a fraud by the court record itself.  



Background History: The parties were married in 1992 and mother and father lived relatively happily for several years.  In 1998 the Fathers mother died and the family attorney Gregory Holly handled the

probate of the multi-million estate. In 2001 father became oddly harsh and the couple divorced in 2002. However, parties shared joint custody of the couples minor children, and the mother and father shared a cooperative and for the most part amicable relationship for several years. 



Then in 2005 the father started dating his nextdoor neighbor, who had a history of domestic violence. The Father referred her to his Attorney Gregory Holly who represented her for a time in her high conflict custody battle. In April 2006 the court ruled against fathers (then) significant other and she lost custody of her 3 year old son due to alcohol related domestic assault and due to the fact the father had lied to the custody evaluator and claimed her victim (the toddlers father)  had inflicted his own injuries. This was clearly false and the consern was noted about the fathers willingness to lie under oath about domestic abuse is a danger to children.  This is clearly stated in her custody report and order. So in April

2006 having lost custody of her own child fathers significant other decided she wanted the mothers children instead so the father again approached his attorney Gregory J Holly. 



In Case No. F7-02-792. Attorney Gregory Holly filed an ex parte order against the mother, and in support of which the Father signed an affidavit under oath alleging child endangerment that was impossible in reality. Attorney Gregory Holly got Referee Earl F. Beddow to personally sign the temporary order.  Father was given temporary custody of the children and he of course gave them to his girl friend where they remained isolated for 48 days.  A hearing was set and mother retained an

attorney and had compiled significant evidence that revealed all and would overturned the fathers charge.     



However to prevent the mother ever having a hearing, attorney Gregory Holly changed the temporary order but also misrepresented the mailing address to the court.  As a result the court sent notice and motion and the Order not to the mother or her attorneys address but all the court sent all the mail  instead to the fathers address (Greg Hollys client). The order lists the mother as pro se and omits her attorney.  But Greg Holly knew Mother had an attorney, he had already met with. 



As a result of this ruse to deny due process, the Mother and her attorney missed the hearing and the court by default changed the endangerment to a change of custody motion, leaving the mother reputedly guilty without ever having a hearing or any opportunity to present evidence.



A number of other attorney obstructions occurred which were not addressed so Mother retained a better attorney and filed a responsive motion that again revealed all, but then the father and his attorney rushed to stipulate so that hearing too was also canceled.  It did not stop there however.



In November of 2006, despite there being no parenting time dispute, under the rules of ADR, the father and his attorney Gregory Holly demanded a PTE (Parenting Time Expeditor) and further insisted it must be hybrid rule 114 neutral in St. Paul, MN 55107.  As a result of such narrow criteria, the parties ended up with Barbara J Lerian of Metro Mediation LLC,.  Parties signed an agreement 1/10/07 with Barbara but never entered a stipulation to appoint the PTE to the court. As a result the court never issued an order appointing Barbara J Lerian as PTE with the details required under Minn. Stat. 518.1751.  (such as

length of appointment, reason for appointment, fees etc) 



Nevertheless and  knowing she has never been appointed, Barbara J Lerian of Metro Mediation LLC has nevertheless acted for six years as PTE without lawful authority and during that time engaged egregious misconducts and unconscionable acts of betrayal with intent to deny mothers rights, all on behalf of the father.  



Twice Mother brought a motions the PTE be removed by the court, but the Referee Earl F. Beddow sanctioned the mother instead, going so far as to order the mother to obey Barbara J Lerian of Metro Mediation. (This was not just obeying the PTE but specifically and adamantly indicates Barbara J Lerian). This raises serious red flags and questions, and creates more than the just the mere appearance of judicial impropriety. 



In 2007, as change of custody matters moved forward, during the custody evaluation Barbara J Lerian engaged in serious manipulative meddling, that included setting the mother up for an injunction by misleading the mother to make it appear mother had moved the childs school without fathers  nowledge or permission.  Then Barbara J Lerian manipulated both the mother and the mothers attorney so that hearing was also canceled. (Note how mother has never once got a hearing.)



As a result the court ruled Jan 2008 father gets full legal custody but parents share joint physical custody of the children, however the court order granted parents 50/50 parenting time and the case closed without a hearing  January 2008.    



Despite the case being closed Jan 2008, Barbara J Lerian of Metro Mediation continued to interject herself in matters outside PTE authority to this day, and to create false conflicts she would then arbitrate rather than mediate for the purpose of issuing biased rulings without means for appeal that consistently violate the mothers rights as well as the court order, and as  anyone can see this is all on behalf of the father.



From 2007 to date the Mother has suffered Barbara J. Leirans abusive tactics yet despite all efforts including motions to the court, ADR ethics complaints along with letters from advocates and others, Barbara Lerian doggedly refuses to stand down and instead retaliates against the mother for

any effort at remedy or redres with intent to silence and intimidate.  Father is currently in contempt of court and chronically fails to deliver the children, all with the support of this so called PTE.     

The terms hired gun or w**** of the court aptly describe Barbara J Leirans conduct and in the purest analyogy: 

   Barbara J. Lerian could be considered a Whore of the Court that menaces the foundations of democracy and rapes the justice system, charging her victims usurious ADR fees while she violates

their rights



It remains a serious concern that Barbara J Lerian is on the Rule 114 neutrals roster list provided to all  family court parties, and is a risk to an unsuspecting public. Therefore in choosing a neutral let the public BEWARE of  neutral, Barbara J. Lerian of Metro Mediation, St. Paul, MN.
