42 U.S.C. § 1983 – Civil action for deprivation of rights
Canon 1
A Judge shall uphold the integrity and independence of the Judiciary
An independent and honorable judiciary is indispensable to justice in our society.  A judge should participate in establishing, maintaining and enforcing high standards of conduct, and personally observe those standards in order to preserve the integrity and independence of the judiciary. The provisions of this code should be construed and applied to further that objective. (Effective January 1, 1996)
Canon 2 (A) (B)
A Judge shall Avoid Impropriety and the Appearance of Impropriety in All of the Judges Activities.
A.      A judge shall respect and comply with the law and act at all times in a manner that promotes public confidence in the integrity and the impartiality of the judiciary.
Judge M Michael Baxter did not require proof that a social workers claim that she had exigent circumstance was necessary when she conducted a warrantless search by entering private residence and conducting an interview with a four year old.

On April 10, 2013
Judge M Michael Baxter accepted a request from the foster care providers to have permanent custody of the 3 minor children of Eugenie Harris. Judge M Michael Baxter also provided a special waiting area for the couple for every court hearing.

Makes statement that children may not go with family member in case he has to get children back?
Social worker made phone calls to family a month early telling them rights of mother would be terminated.
Social worker appeared to know rights were terminated prior to the ruling when she cancelled the mothers ride to her what was now known to be her last visit with children.  
Judge refused to allow family member to speak and then lied about details of disqualifications to push a forced adoption to the couple who placed an order to keep mothers children in the first place.
Whoever wrote up the finding of facts that judge m Michael Baxter signed did not appear to have attended or review evidence from the hearings’ suggesting that Baxter signed off on whatever social services said to be true.
Baxter allowed Megan Gaudette to make all the decisions and clearly had some type of relationship with her based on his conduct. That was proven to be true. Later we learned that the assistant county attorney use to work for the judge. She now works for Brent Christian the county attorney who had been providing week end day care for the mothers children while he sent Megan Gaudette in to terminate the mothers rights with a judge she clearly influenced. Tony and Melissa Dobmeier placed an order with the county worker and the judge to have the mother removed from her children so they could keep them. They are also related to the county attorney which is why he was providing weekend daycare for the Harris children.


 Tony and Melissa Dobmeier the couple who placed an order to have the mother stripped of her children so they can keep the children.
When family member attempts to explain that she could not get the children prior to the six months judge yells at family member I don’t care what happened to you…..

Judge refuses to allow miss Bracken to participate even though she has had the same back ground check that the county workers have had based on her college education for social work.  When mother wants to spend holidays or birthdays with children Baxter asks the foster care givers if her participation will interrupt their family time with the children. Judge ignore the fact that children have been getting worse in the care of the foster couple and despite having a safe way to reunite mother with children placed children up for forced adoption with foster couple whom the children have actually gotten worse in their care.

Judge isolates all family at six months with the exception of the foster care provider’s family. Judge scolds mother for allowing her children to speak to biological family members on the phone during visits. judge orders complete isolation without any reason for safety concerns. Mother was denied to have anyone with her and when it was requested to have someone with her on her behalf, county said get a lawyer if you don’t like forced separation of person with disability



Judge takes 8 months to rule on 6 month extension that mother qualified for with testimony that it was not possible to complete case plan in six months  and denies mother extension to push forced adoption that was proven to be not in the best interest of the child

judge refuses to allow miss Bracken to speak during hearings even though she had a vested interest.
