The arrest and suicide of Seattle psychologist Stuart Greenberg could result in challenges to his recommendations and the resulting decisions handed down in past sexual-abuse and child-custody cases. Greenberg, a nationally recognized expert witness in sexual-abuse cases, also consulted for the Archdiocese of Seattle in their priest-abuse cases. Greenberg was arrested and then suspended from practice after he allegedly videotaped a woman in his office bathroom. The psychology expert witness frequently served as a parenting evaluator in child-custody cases. SeatteTimes.com also reports:
King County Presiding Judge Michael Trickey said the courts – and families going through custody battles – will have to contend with a number of difficult issues in the wake of Greenberg’s arrest and subsequent death. He anticipates a flurry of challenges by parties who were unhappy with past evaluations involving Greenberg.
