The latest development in Mr. Doubtfire’s story is the groundbreaking $19.2 million Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) lawsuit, filed under a federal charge of pre-employment discrimination (EEOC Charge Number #28D-2023-00538) against the State of Kansas/10th District Johnson County Courthouse. This lawsuit, under the Civil Rights Act of 1964, alleges unprecedented interference into Escalante’s employment opportunities, shedding light on systemic issues within the legal system.

What sets this legal battle apart is Escalante’s unwavering resolve in the face of adversity. Despite facing four dismissed lawsuits in the United States District Court in the District of Kansas against district court judges over the last eight months, Mr. Doubtfire has reactivated and re-entered all of his claims under EEO statutes. The federal court had prior barred those claims from re-entering under doctrines, but they have returned in new life. The dad’s determination to challenge the injustices perpetrated by judges, including Johnson County Chief Judge Charles Droege and District Family Court Judge Paul Burmaster, showcases his commitment to accountability and fairness.

The heart of Mr. Doubtfire’s EEOC lawsuit lies in the events of March 20, 2023, when he was a qualified candidate for a Trial Clerk II position with the Johnson County Courthouse. The prejudiced actions of Family Court Judge Paul Burmaster across the other side of the courthouse, issuing an unlawful family court order (Doc 262) in Mr. Escalante’s separate civil custody case (18-CV03813 Escalante vs. Escalante), hindered his employment prospects. This order, titled “Order Restricting Matthew Escalante’s contact with the court, led to what is again being placed as a valid federal claim of unlawful detainment on April 26, 2023.

A critical flaw has been unearthed now emerged in the Order Restricting, rendering it void of authority since its inception. The father challenged the authority of Order Restricting on November 16, 2023, when Judge Paul Burmaster was suspended from Mr. Doubtfire’s cases. The father crossed the Doc 262 Order Restricting over 50 times since then and the Joco court is unable to enforce it as the dad litigated in his own cases again unrestricted. The EEOC lawsuit contends that Judge Burmaster committed a felony crime of interference under 18 USC 242, by illegally detaining the dad while attempting to enforce the known void court order, overstepping federal EEO policies in the process.

Mr. Doubtfire’s story is one of resilience, courage, and the pursuit of justice against all odds. As his legal battle unfolds, it serves as a stark reminder of the systemic injustices that persist within the legal system and the importance of holding accountable those who abuse their power.

This is now potentially one of the largest pro se endeavor and discovery court adventures against the family courts in the history of the United States court system, as this EEOC is connected to a Gardner Police Lawsuit sitting in the 10th Circuit court of appeals waiting to remand back into the Kansas federal judiciary.

The last compelling piece of the JoCo court saga, is another Kansas pro se father Steven Knoche, still also holds the Chief Judge of the Johnson County court under federal claim of interference of the judicial process in Knoche vs Droege. The lawsuit lays criminal claim on the chief and has yet to be dismissed.

About Mr. Doubtfire

Mr. Doubtfire, the ‘Kansas Dad’ from Gardner, is a symbol of resilience and determination in the face of injustice. His journey from victim to advocate embodies the struggle for equality and fairness within the legal system. The name derived from the popular Hollywood original movie, “Ms Doubtfire” featured the late Robin Williams, who was set as a divorced father who went to extreme lengths to be with his children, as the character became a nanny in disguise and the movie captured the hearts of millions. Mr Escalante is being compared to the character of Ms Doubtfire in his transformation into the unknown realm of Attorney, and making strong advancement as his own counsel dismissing cases formed against him that alleged him a bad father. The nation is rooting for the Escalante dad.
