Moving state case to federal court
- I have been involved in a long and arduous family court case in my
I appealled a couple orders 15 months ago. The plaintiff has stalled
my appeal endlessly. He motioned the appeals court to dismiss my
appeal on the stated basis that the orders I was appealling (contempt
and temp custody order that I was found to be in contempt of) were not
final orders. In my state (SC) any order finding someone in civil
compensatory contempt IS A FINAL ORDER and is IMMEDIATELY appealable.
There is NO reason for the appeals court to have dismissed my appeal
(and of course they failed to state a reason).
At this point I can motion for the appeals court to rehear the
dismissal of my appeal but they will just deny my motion to rehear or
not reverse the dismissal. THEY REFUSE TO FOLLOW THE LAW!
I can't see any other remedy except to somehow move the case to
federal courts (where I MAY have a chance for review). I have never
attempted to do such a thing. I have never been in federal court. I
have litigated in state courts for 10 years so I am well versed in
procedure and rules there.
10 long years I have been in family courts in two states and I have
YET to have a judge follow the law. NOT ONCE. I am fed up with these
corrupt state courts.
Can I and if so how do I move a state family case to federal court?
Anyone ever done anything like this before?
Anyone know where I can look to find out how to do such a thing?

- I think it's an attorney's game in the eastern State courts and that the
judges there routinely issue orders that are not final orders, in order
to deceive popular litigants. Now that the other side has stipulated
that there is no final order and the appeals court has denied without
reason stated, I don't think I would rush off to federal court, where
there's not much interest in domestic controversies. I think I'd
research whatever an order is called that's not a final order.
Provisional, maybe, as are typical in a country under occupation. But,
maybe it's a temporary order. And has expired.
