Christopher Ambrose Fails at Everything But One Special Talent

Chris Ambrose

Christopher Ambrose likes to claim he is good at many things. In his Connecticut divorce case, he spent substantial time providing evidence of what a “good” father he is. Before the divorce, Ambrose was an absentee father for much of his children’s lives, pursuing a career as a screenwriter in Hollywood and New York City.

At the same time, his ex-wife, Karen Riordan, was the sole caretaker for their children.

In Hollywood, Ambrose spent serious time convincing everyone in the industry that he was a “good” script writer. In reality, he was a plagiarist.

In 2018, Ambrose lost his Hollywood writing career because of allegations of plagiarism.

Good Dad

When he returned to CT after losing his career, Ambrose took on the role of a good dad.

He began by alienating the children, taking all the marital assets, and fighting to deprive the children of their mother, their primary attachment figure.

The children are unhappy, even after three years without their mother, and refer to Ambrose not by the word dad or father but as Creepy Cree or P, which stands for Pinocchio. 

The abuse these children have experienced over the last few years fills pages of Frank Report. In a complaint with the CT State Attorney General, there were scores of audio and videos the children made of their father punishing them or abusing them. You may argue that it is wrong for children to document the abuses of their father, but as they have said on social media and elsewhere, no one believes them because P is such a persuasive liar.

At one point, Ambrose took the doorknobs off the doors of the children so they could not keep him out of their rooms. He did that on Christmas Day. 

A good father and good husband, he is not.


Frank Report can only describe Ambrose’s recent activities in Connecticut as highly litigious. Ambrose likes to take people to court. This includes his ex-wife and mother of his children, an old family friend and godmother of one of the children, and this publication, Frank Report.

Ambrose recently went to Connecticut Family Court to get a judge to stop the children’s mother from seeing the children. He argued that she should never see her children because she did not stop Frank Parlato from publishing the truth about his misdeeds. He failed.

For someone so litigious, Ambrose is not a “good” client. Just ask CT Attorney Nancy Aldrich. She filed a lawsuit against Ambrose, her former client, claiming he failed to pay her $65,767 in legal fees. At her $600 per hour billing rate, she claims the former TV writer stole about 100 hours of her time.

Why pay the attorney an unpaid fee after she finishes her work?

Now Christopher Ambrose, blackballed from the Connecticut Bar for non-payment (even sharks don’t eat their own) (and blackballed from Hollywood for plagiarism), is off to tilt at his next windmill. Ambrose tries to convince the world that he is a “good” lawyer.


Christopher Ambrose

Ambrose sued Frank Parlato and this publication in Connecticut Superior Court. Parlato removed the case to Federal Court, and two motions are now pending. Ambrose wants the case remanded back to the Connecticut State Court.

Parlato asked US District Court Judge Michael P. Shea to throw the case out based on a multitude of defects. The case was referred to Magistrate Judge Robert A. Richardson. Ambrose represents himself.

For the record, no one ever said Ambrose was a good lawyer. And his work on Ambrose v. Parlato probably proves that no one ever will.

To Ambrose’s credit, he graduated from NYU Law School, a highly reputed school. But it is still being determined if he ever actively practiced law.

He did serve a stint for a not-for-profit that helped homeless Latino boys find shelter, among other duties. 

As a lawyer, Ambrose was previously licensed in New York State. However, the New York Unified Court System website says he was suspended from law practice on November 13, 2006, by the Appellate Division for a Violation of the Judiciary Law.

Not having an active law license did not prevent this father of three children from removing the mother from his children’s lives, keeping all the marital assets, and absconding with their mother’s inheritance in Connecticut Family Court, where money, whether stolen or otherwise, rules the day.

Ambrose’s complaint alleges Parlato’s words not only defamed him, but caused “emotional distress” and a “privacy violation.”

The filed document is a 33-page, sometimes rambling mishmash. It is hard to imagine anyone who could produce such papers was ever admitted to the Bar. Ambrose may have been banking on the same CT State Court actors who did the bidding of his attorney, paid by him with money taken from his wife, coming to his aid.

It is almost as if Ambrose was absent the day they taught the First Amendment at NYU.

He ignores that he is suing a journalist and media outlet for reporting and disseminating the fruits of their newsgathering.

Under the First Amendment’s “press clause,” this is protected activity unless Ambrose can show actual malice. That is, with the knowledge that the reporting was false or reckless disregard for whether it was false.

Investigative Journalist Frank Parlato

Investigative journalist Frank Parlato appears on TNT.

In the 33 pages of his meandering complaint, Ambrose baldly states Frank Report’s publication of “at least 48 articles” shows “a sinister or corrupt motive to injure [Ambrose].” His only problem is that he failed to assert any facts to support these allegations, as any good or even not-so-good lawyer would.

Parlato wrote about Ambrose on newsworthy matters. Ambrose is upset that he was the subject of Parlato and Frank Report’s journalistic coverage. Ambrose claims Parlato defamed him, and his words were so defamatory and false that the comments breached Ambrose’s privacy, destroyed his reputation, and caused Ambrose extreme emotional distress.

He even alleged that Parlato’s stories made him suicidal – which he might have thought would win sympathy but should, in reality, cause authorities to investigate his fitness as a parent.

Ambrose never served Parlato legally with papers. Still, Parlato responded anyway when he found out Ambrose purportedly claimed the Connecticut Superior Court should issue a default judgment against him.

Parlato filed a Notice of Removal to the Federal Court in New Haven, getting the case out of CT state court. Parlato does not live in CT. Parlato asked the US District Court to throw out the case on the absence of “actual malice” and other grounds.

Parlato’s papers said: 

Surprisingly, since Mr. Ambrose is a lawyer, Mr. Ambrose does not recognize several important legal distinctions like statements of fact versus statements of opinion, or statements of fact based upon source materials and/or published court documents. Every statement objectionable to Mr. Ambrose is either a non-actionable opinion or a true statement of fact. Mr. Parlato is not liable for any of the activity alleged by Mr. Ambrose.

Parlato’s words and actions were part of his and Frank Report’s legitimate investigative, newsgathering, reporting, and publishing activity. Parlato’s activities were the creation, utterance, publication, and dissemination of words. In all Ambrose’s 33-page Complaint, Ambrose fails to say how Frank Report’s reporting was done with actual malice.

Above: Frank Parlato, appearing on American Greed, is accustomed to “deep-dive” research for articles and exposes.

In the Ambrose matter, Frank Report published stories based on already-public documents, interviews, and statements. Parlato also injected opinion and commentary into his articles. None of these things is an activity Ambrose can go to court and sue over.

Even what Ambrose purports to identify as “actionable” is laughable. He advanced this “laundry list” in his big-on-bluster, short-on-substance Complaint:

  1. Parlato maliciously and falsely published that Ambrose is a pedophile who sexually abused his children. (Page 8)
  2. Parlato maliciously and falsely published that Ambrose admitted to viewing child pornography and that he is attracted to children. (page 9)
  3. Parlato maliciously and falsely published that Ambrose admitted to viewing gay pornography and producing child and gay pornography. (page 11)
  4. Parlato maliciously and falsely published that Ambrose stole over $1 million from Riordan and an alleged six-figure inheritance. (page 11)
  5. Parlato maliciously and falsely published that Ambrose is a “deadbeat” who did not financially support his wife once he filed for divorce in July 2019. (page 13)
  6. Parlato falsely and maliciously published that Ambrose “hates” his children and was an absentee parent who abused his children by, among other things, keeping them “caged,” keeping them medicated, preventing them from communicating with anyone, isolating them from Riordan’s extended family and friends. (page 14)
  7. Parlato falsely and maliciously published that Ambrose was awarded custody because he lied in an affidavit and prevented Riordan from seeing the children. (page 18)
  8. Parlato falsely and maliciously published that Ambrose always wanted sole custody and all the marital assets for himself. Hence, he lied and colluded with and/or bribed the court-appointed Guardian ad Litem, custody evaluator, and others. (page 19)
  9. Parlato falsely and maliciously published that Ambrose illicitly colluded with the GAL, custody evaluator, attorneys, judges, police officers and detectives, DCF investigators, caseworkers, hospital doctors, nurses, and social workers, elected and appointed public
    officials, and others in a vast “RICO” conspiracy to deprive Riordan of custody and her due process rights.
  10. Parlato falsely and maliciously published that Ambrose misrepresented his sexuality and was unfaithful during marriage by leading a “double life” that included an illicit “gay lover” and “multiple, multi-year affairs.” (page 24)
  11. Parlato maliciously and falsely publishes that Ambrose is psychologically unwell, has a drinking problem and anger issues, and is paranoid and delusional. (page 25)

Ambrose has failed to establish any actual malice in Parlato’s practice of journalism. Moreover, nothing Parlato published was false.

Ambrose admits the Multi-Disciplinary Task Force at Yale New Haven Hospital made a report that made disturbing disclosures of a sexual nature involving allegations of pedophilia against Ambrose.

Ambrose does not deny the report. Yale isn’t being sued. Parlato’s reporting on those issues is based, in part, on the Yale Report.

Ambrose admits there was a custody evaluation. Parlato’s reporting is based on the custody evaluation by the Connecticut Family Court. Ambrose does not deny the report. Neither the Connecticut Family Court nor the Custody Evaluator are being sued. Parlato’s reporting is based, in part, on the Family Court Evaluator’s report.

Ambrose told the Custody Evaluator that “a website [allegedly found on his computer] called Latino Boiz… does not include children.”

If Ambrose never viewed Latino Boiz, how does he know it does not include children?

Considering Ambrose has three adopted Latino children, and considering Yale Hospital reported that the children claimed he molested at least one of the boys, this reporting does not show malice, and might be cause for concern in almost any place outside of CT Family Court.

The reporting was based on documents.

Ambrose admits there was a forensic evaluation of his laptop computers. Ambrose does not deny the findings. Ambrose only denies the expert methodology, which is newsworthy.

Parlato’s reporting is based, in part, on the forensic evaluation.

Ambrose does not deny the actual report. The Forensic Evaluator is not being sued. Parlato’s reporting is based on the Forensic Evaluator’s report.

Ambrose is a party to the lawsuit Ambrose v. Ambrose, FBT-FA-19-6088163-S (Sup. Ct. Conn). Ambrose knows the allegations of both parties. He knows that all the claims reported by Parlato were allegations contained in the filed court documents. Ambrose does not deny it. Parlato’s reporting is based partly on the filed court documents.

Karen Riordan is not being sued. The Connecticut Superior Court is not being sued.

By bringing the lawsuit, Ambrose, the “good” lawyer, has (wittingly or unwittingly) made his children witnesses in this case. If the children were traumatized before, why would Mr. Ambrose do this again?

None of the factual claims enumerated by Ambrose allege any activity that would put Frank Parlato of the Frank Report on the hook. Nothing Parlato allegedly did was malicious. Truth is a complete defense.

All activities and reporting by Parlato and the Frank Report were textbook examples of newsgathering and reporting, all First Amendment-protected activity. Ambrose’s real gripe is simple: all the reporting was about him and wasn’t endearing. Ambrose says:

101. That Parlato’s published falsehoods have incited people to hate Plaintiff is apparent from the comments of his own readers, who make blistering, libelous statements and threats, all of which Parlato publishes. Not surprisingly, virtually every one of these comments published by Parlato are attributed to “anonymous”.
102.Parlato often publishes confidential material to give his a veneer of credibility and”insider” knowledge to his false assertions, even as he omits material facts and context that create a wholly false light impression of Plaintiff.

Ambrose admits Parlato is a journalist who publishes articles. The crux of Ambrose’s allegations is that Parlato’s reports are unbalanced, unfavorable, and mean. Ambrose ignores the strong protections afforded to the press under the First Amendment. Because of these protections, Ambrose failed to meet the high bar required so the Judge won’t throw the case out:

“A court cannot substitute its judgment for that of the press by requiring the press to present an article or broadcast in what the court believes is a balanced manner. It may only assess liability when the press so oversteps its editorial freedom that it contains falsity and does so with the requisite degree of fault.” Machleder v. Diaz, 801 F.2d 46, 48 (2d Cir. 1986)

Ambrose filed a Motion to Remand the case back to Connecticut State Court. Parlato filed opposition, tearing Ambrose to pieces:

Plaintiff [Ambrose] should not be rewarded for an inartful pleading attempting to disguise a defamation claim as another claim, thus circumventing an assertion of jurisdiction the Connecticut Legislature never intended to allow. Mr. Ambrose is an attorney, he should know better, and his pleadings should be better.

The motion is pending before Robert A. Richardson, United States Magistrate Judge for the District of Connecticut.

This week, Ambrose continued his “legal adventure.” He sent a letter to Parlato demanding he preserves all evidence. Ambrose references the removed Connecticut State Court case. He then proceeds to make demands under “Rule 34 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure,” the request used in Federal Court.

Ambrose, the “good” lawyer, doesn’t know where he is. Even a braindead lawyer knows whether he is in State or Federal Court.
Ambrose is apparently “getting loaded for bear.” He announced he would request a mountain of evidence from Parlato if the judge doesn’t throw the case out:

In connection with the case, I will be seeking electronic data and paper files in your custody and control. I consider these to be valuable and irreplaceable sources of discoverable information. Accordingly, I place you, the websites, and any successors and assigns, on notice to preserve any data referencing or pertaining to the case and/or me and/or any of my children. In addition, I place you, the websites, and any successors and assigns, on notice not to allow the deletion or destruction of any electronic or paper communications, including any ESI identified above.
I am confident that you and the websites have already taken steps to preserve this data since, as an experienced litigant, you are aware of the obligation to preserve relevant evidence. Therefore, no procedures should have been implemented to alter active, deleted, or fragmented data. Moreover, no electronic data should have been disposed of or destroyed. I further trust that you will preserve such electronic data and paper files throughout this litigation.

One has to question whether Ambrose, the “good” lawyer, has thought his strategy through. He is looking for a practically limitless trove of materials to be reviewed by his legal team of one.

Christopher Ambrose is not managing this case as a good lawyer or even a sane one.

Ambrose has not been good. As a husband, as apparent from the facts in his divorce proceeding, he was absentee while pursuing his writing career. Hollywood ran away from Ambrose because of his plagiarism. His former lawyers are chasing him for unpaid fees. So what exactly is Christopher Ambrose “good” at?

In my opinion, Christopher Ambrose is an expert at one thing: deception. He deceived Karen Riordan into thinking he was a nice enough guy to marry and start a family with. He then deceived her into practically sole child care while he was out in Hollywood trying to “make it big.”

While in Tinsel Town, he deceived his way through writing gigs until the truth was uncovered: as a writer, he was talentless and had to plagiarize and steal others’ ideas to survive.

Once back in Connecticut, Ambrose saw the opportunity to bilk his wife out of her assets, inheritance, and children by deceiving the Connecticut Family Court. He advanced, among other things, his children’s less than enthusiastic attitude about being with him was “parental alienation” caused by his wife.

He deceived Nancy Aldrich into believing he would pay her bills.
Now, he’s trying to deceive a Federal Court judge that Frank Parlato is anything other than a reporter, a media man and that he, Ambrose, is not responsible for all the bad things anyone has ever said about him.

The problem with relying upon deception is that you can begin to deceive yourself. Christopher Ambrose is well past that phase. His words and actions lead to the inescapable conclusion that the man is highly delusional. But you’ll never hear him say it.

No one is good at everything, except if your name is Christopher Ambrose.

  • GEORGE E BOURGUIGNON JR- attorney for Easter bunny auntie. Jellybeans abound, police called, dangerous delivery of chocolate eggs from beloved godmother

    Ambrose couldn’t take the threat- all love must be denied to break his

    “Beaner” children as he calls them.

    Now psycho man attacks Easter aunty and her attorney! Everyone is threatening Chrissy!!!

  • The Grandiose Chris Ambrose is now accusing attorneys of being unethical and threatening him. He is ALWAYS the victim.

  • Rich-

    Why do you think he’s suing everyone? He’s got no case against Frank Report and no case against Easter aunty bunny.

    Is he still counting on Judge Jane Grossman? She’s in New Haven court where aunty Easter is and where he wants FR to return…

    Is this his new revenue stream? Is he bored? Angry? Delusional?

    He’s making all kinds of claims against the aunts attorney too. On the public docket. Crazy. But what’s his motive?

    • Where I come from, he’s what you call a PUNK. He talks big. He’s a telephone tough guy. He’ll try to sue you sneakily if you’re formidable, or money-whip you if you are weak. But he’s not used to push back.

      The second he gets any resistance, the second he gets push-back, the second anyone punches him in the nose – bang, he folds like a tent. He’s the bully that gets smacked and then runs home and cries to mommy.

      Look at his track-record. Hollywood called him out, and he ran away from Tinsel Town. Something must have happened in New York and he ran away from being a lawyer for a Latino boys charity. I think he’s going to get set to run again very soon. He was set-up to start in CT because he has a brother who is a lawyer. But he’s outlived the usefulness of the CT Family Court. He has CT lawyers looking to collect from him. And, he made the fatal error of suing in the Parlato case. If that case doesn’t get thrown out, Ambrose sits for depositions. He’s the plaintiff. He goes first. And if you don’t think that entire experience isn’t going to be one big perjury trap for him, you haven’t been paying attention.

      Ambrose is getting ready to fold because he’s a punk, and punks always do.

    • You better watch out. Ambrose will come for you if you dare to insult his intelligence. He prides himself on his brainpower.

    • Che k out his griping in another case- making a life out of litigation.

      But he’s in New Haven – the playground of brother Neil Ambrose- who runs the shoe bc older brother Chris is as delusional as the youngest Ambrose trio.


  • Chris Ambrose- dcf took legal and physical custody from you because you’re a child molester and sexually assaulted your children. You are vile and disgusting.

    You manipulated the system and used your brother (attorney for Yale) and your money to force your kids back with you while lying about your wife.

    You are a sick man. I was on the dcf call when they confirmed you touched your child “over the clothes” on his penis – and had been doing so for a year.

    You’re an animal. Pedo state of CT. Next to Hollywood where no doubt you did this to many young Latino boys.

    You’ll face your own private he’ll one day. And ultimately you’ll be alone and hated. You sick bastard.

  • Easter is coming. Is Ambrose going to drive away all joy again? You bet he is. He ruins everything. It’s his forte. So incredibly sad. He’s a psychopath. Truly a psychopath.

  • As much as I hate it for FR I’d love to see this go to trial. Discovery on Ambrose will be priceless and land him in prison if it’s tried in federal court. 😁😁😁

  • The problem is Chris Ambrose and those who engage in litigation abuse, are able to bankrupt innocent people, and cause unwarranted stress.

    • Karen is the one who dragged everything out for three years and essentially bankrupted the both of them.

      • Mr Hamnose, is Karen supposed to give up the children that she raised more or less single handedly for years?

        • No, she is supposed to co-parent with their father. She is apparently incapable of doing that, and expects Chris to give up the children He supported and raised for years.

          • Sure Chris. Whatever you say… in your world of delusion. Ping… ping… ping…

        • I could be remembering wrong, but I believe in the divorce decision made public by the wife, it says neither of them have anything besides estimated earning capacities lowballed at 40,000 a year. There might be C’s retirement account, but that will be divided at retirement time.

          • It’s always the wife. Why would the wife want to publicize the documents that malign and disparage her?

            Christopher Alwyn Ambrose, you have lost your mind. 🫠 Melting into your land of delusion🫠🫠🫠🫠🫠

      • Yes Chris- everything is Karen’s fault. The kids hate you because of Karen. The kids don’t trust you because of Karen. You have no writing career because of Karen. You have no career as an attorney because of Karen. The public knows you’re a pathological liar because of Karen. You look at child porn and depraved porn because of Karen. You troll the internet as a barber because of Karen. Your business is a beauty barber industry because if Karen. You have white hair because of Karen. You’re blubbery because of Karen. You wear fuzzy socks be size if Karen. You have not one friend because of Karen. You stole her mothers inheritance because of Karen. The kids are clinically depressed and cutting because of Karen. Jocelyn has headed far away from you because of Karen. You haven’t sought employment since you were fired for plagiarism because of Karen. You didn’t pay Nancy Aldrich because of Karen. Judge Rodriquez saw through you because of Karen. You have a pointy noise because of Karen…

        And soon all of these will be because of Frank.

      • Really Chris? You’re not bankrupt. Your wife just lasted longer than you intended. Maybe you shouldn’t have agreed to pay Jocelyn $2800 per day to sit through trial.

        But this was all predetermined. 😂

  • Ambrose is sad and pathetic..spends a LIFETIME creating a false self and destroys anyone who figures out he is lying sociopath.

    • That’s interesting. Karen seems to be the only one of the two who has been trying to destroy other people.

      • Sure Chrissy. Just ask her friends who support her for decades. 😁. Or her former students. Or her children. Or her colleagues. Or her prior boyfriends. But keep lying precious. 😁

        • I don’t see him going online to attack her or attack Family Court employees or attack the governor of CT. K is on the attack and trying to destroy people, not C. She also organizes in-person harassment.

          C has taken the high road for the sake of the children. K is too sick to understand that. As for her having friends, well, Keith Raniere had lots of friends too. Big deal.

    • Correct. This is why family and friends have been cut out. Ambrose came up with bullshit reasons to eliminate them one by one. He’s in violation of Jennifer’s law. It’s domestic abuse.

      It’s all catching up with him. No one can save him now.

  • Chrissy is an obvious humanitarian….helping homeless Latino boys….just like Jerry Sandusky was a humanitarian.

  • “Malicious and false” Pissy Chrissy, you keep using those words. I do not think they mean what you think they mean.

  • The problem is widespread as the AFCC promotes parental alienation. Family court judges and family law attorneys attend conferences led by the AFCC which teach and promote parental alienation.

    I’m CT judges like Adelman and Munro were keynote speakers. Court appointed experts like Bruce Freedman run the workshops and court appointed “therapists” like Robert Horwitz and Linda Smith were on the Board of directors for the CT chapter of the AFCC.

    Invites to participate in these AFCC conferences (usually held at Quinnipiac) were sent right from the judicial branch!

    These AFCC conferences do not educate on domestic violence and fail to acknowledge parental alienation is NOT a credible diagnosis or recognized in the medical profession. It is not in the DSM-V.

    Courts are supposed to use medical information only— but they do just the opposite.

    It’s a money fest for the ct judicial court system- everyone participates. It costs money to attend but they’re paying one and other to endorse and seek cases of PA where custody is flipped solely to one parent- usually the father. Fathers rights groups pour money into the courts and pay legal fees of fathers to promote their cause.

    It’s a criminal enterprise where the government is benefitting from such abuse. It’s going on throughout the US- CT among the worst.

    It’s designed to cover abuse as Gardner advocated. These judges and attorneys make a living off of child abuse.

    • Yep. And the custody evaluator saw no problem. When wife raised it as a concern, she was alienating him from the children (who are adopted Latino boys). It’s a joke.

    • Seems to me that Karen visited that URL herself in a lame attempt to frame Chris while she was in possession of/illegally went into his computer. I mean let’s get real.

      By the way, are you aware that when Karen’s laptop was subpoenaed she destroyed it/threw it in the ocean?

      I wonder what kind of incriminating things would have been found there probably millions of searches on “how to frame your husband for a crime so you get custody.” And worse.

      I’m glad the court saw through her evil attempts to steal the children through underhanded means..

      • Sounds like a Chris Hansen “alibi letter.” I’m just here to “counsel” this misguided young girl. I drove 300 miles to do it and I have beer and condoms in my car.

        So let’s look at the choices: Option A (for Ambrose) – Karen did it all and she even hacked my computer and framed me to make it look like I was going on

        Option B (for BASED) – Chris Ambrose frequented and new he was screwed when he admitted to knowing all about it’s content. So his plan – blame Karen. She must have “hacked” me.

        I would go with B if it also explained why the keyboard keys were stuck together. 🤣🤣🤣

        • “She must have “hacked” me”

          Richard, it seems like you are not very familiar with this case. It is documented that Karen stole his computers and was in possession of them for quite a long time.

          • Exactly…so she had plenty of time to “frame” Chris on and all the other dirtbag sites he was on that exploit children. Because Chris knew all about the content on a site he “never went on.”

            I’ve seen a lot of people like Chris Ambrose. They’re called CHOMOs and should all be chemically castrated, if not just taken out back and shot.

          • Chrissy, stop with your lies. We’ll provide all the contents to frankreport. They’ve been given to the police and are in the public domain.

            No worries. 😁👍🏽

          • “ I’ve seen a lot of people like Chris Ambrose. They’re called CHOMOs and should all be chemically castrated, if not just taken out back and shot.”

            Are you effing kidding me? He is completely innocent, every single allegation was determined unfounded and unsubstantiated. Not a single charge was even filed. You are a complete hypocrite for supporting and defending DiRubba who was actually charged. Let me guess, DiRubba is paying you to write articles on his behalf.

        • I mean seriously… Just think about how laughably obvious is…give me a break. I’d bet the bank that Karen went to that URL, not Chris.

          • Ambrose admitted visiting that site to the custody evaluator. FR took quotes right from the report. So not so laughably obvious… Plus Chris insists they were solely his laptops. Even accused his wife of “stealing HIS laptops.” Can’t have it both ways Chrissy.

        • Maybe we can hear from a lawyer who hasn’t been disbarred. Since we all agree all lawyers are jerks, how much worse do you have to be that the jerks kick you out of their club!

      • Chris— you’re getting your stories confused again. But since you’re accusing your wife of framing you, we can provide FR with all contents of the computers. No worries. What you kept from the court with your flying monkeys will be made public.

        Enjoy the ride you freak of nature.

        • I’m not Chris and doubt he posts here. Nice of you to try to threaten people though. You should be in jail.

  • Brother Neil can’t help him now. Come back to Wethersfield Chris. You’re about as popular as when you left. Looks like LA, Westport and Madison feel the same way. People don’t change. You’ve proven that.

  • Dear Minnie Gonzalez and Edward Vargas, I believe you both to be good people. Please visit a local domestic violence shelter. Latino women are one of the largest population to be accused of parental alienation. This is not just an issue for white women. All ethnic population of women are dealing with this problem in Connecticut. The parental alienation defense is being used in cases of lower income as well. These women and some men are in desperate need of the state to recognize. The reporting of domestic abuse is resulting in loss of custody across the board.

    • And they’re taking minority children away from their protective parent.

      Chris Ambrose, with his ghostlike complexion, is a not only a closeted homosexual, but a racist.

      His latest is “Nibba and nibbas” – spoken to his children and heard by their friends.

      And if course he calls his own children- who he does not deserve-

      We need minority leaders to intervene now.

      • “with his ghostlike complexion, is a not only a closeted homosexual, but a racist.”

        Oh, so just because somebody has light skin they are racist? You’re an a—hole and an idiot.

          • How would you know? Are you his roommate? No, you’re just an anonymous liar on the Internet.

    • “Latino women are one of the largest population to be accused of parental alienation.”

      Any recorded data on that statistic?

  • It’s ALL YOUR fault Frank. You’ve ruined his life! The kids hate him because of what you post.

    It’s no longer bc of Karen. Now Karen is his BFF and United, they will take you down!

    He wanted a protective order against her, but then decided he needs Karen to try and win his lawsuit against you.

    So now Karen is an ally and you are the villain!

    And the kids are depressed and suicidal… engaging in self harm because of you! And your posts.

    Of course their depression, suicidal thoughts and self harm began within weeks of being taken from Karen, but let’s blame it all on Frank— who ruined Chris’s life.

    Oh the drama… oh the lies…

  • Is his overuse of the word “blistering” due to third degree sunburns as the result of untreated albinism? 🤔

  • Erin Paranzino Has a story similar to Karen Riordan. Her kids are in the care of an abusive father and engaged in cutting- even cutting the word “monster” into their arm.

    When is enough, enough?

  • Gentleman, move beyond Chris Ambrose and follow the trail. This is not just about one case. This one was an eye opener. Follow the dusty trail like you did with the Catholic Church story. It imperative for legitimate news reports to dive deeper into the AFCC and the system. In Connecticut. You will be shocked. Research the players behind the scenes. Your missing a whole lot of good shit. What is the point of these articles if you can not find out why this is happening.. you would be helping the entire population in Connecticut. Important children. Get it together gentlemen dig a little deeper. Maybe it will help Karen get the kids back

    • Agreed it goes much deeper, but who is at the top? It’s the same cabal – caverly, Linda smith, Robert Horwitz, sue cosisesu, Bruce freedman, Gerard Adelman, Sidney Horwitz, Hurwitz, aldrich- all running through the AFCC.

      Ct chapter was running a business through the ct courts- literally a business with the hired court actors as the vendors appoint by, reporting to and protected by the family court.

      It’s indeed a racket run through quinnipiac university. The judges are complicit and protected. The AG absolutely knows what’s going on but won’t take action.

      The legislative branch won’t do anything and have laws in place that actually support what we see played out. Gals are not mandated reporters. Why not?

      The gal is allowed to produce hearsay as evidence- why?

      We cannot sue the gal. Why?

      But why does the fbi refuse to investigate what is public corruption?

      I know that now judges were once’s the attorneys who protected the pedos of the Connecticut Catholic Church.

      The judge that supports scoundrels like nusbaum who FR has also reported about.

      There is absolutely a link between pedo land and the family courts and the church.

      Ambrose had tons of child porn entries on his computer. The gal and judges went after Riordan with venom and got the hard drives and a court order NOT to pursue any further analysis of forensics on the computer info.

      Why? That seems a far reach for family court intervention. That was Jane grossman.

      Child abusers.

      Please help. Please call Luthmann and tell him what you know. So many are suffering.

      • Why did it it take the federal government to investigate Calvery? Hints look into the DPH. Who is looking at attorney complaints. Follow the trail. Check into the behind the scenes. Dig deep know the players in the game. Turning a blind eye 👁️. Investigative journalism. Is there statical data is it correct? Who is collecting it? Why would they want to label Claire a sex offender if she is not? Is there a documented case where someone was not guilty of PA? That’s documented for case reference? Are all these women guilty of alienation? Should we be concerned about the water in CT. All these women suffering from mental health issues? Could they be suffering from CPTSD? Is that ever considered? Is there any training other than PA for the court professionals? What are these Gals learning in the public defender’s office. Why didn’t the prosecutor office protect Julie? What happened in the case of the mother gunned down in Waterbury? Son shot and injured? What is happening with DV and offender programs? Are there financial insensitive? Why is there no motherhood. Org? Don’t women deserve equal opportunity? Father’s right over mother’s. 2010 MOU.

        • The Martinez foundation. The fatherhood initiative. Funding to favor father’s rights over mother’s. Funding that insist all father’s are the best interest of the children.
          Mother’s don’t matter. Overr rides their health safety and welfare. DCF training in . The legalizated funding to the state of Connecticut to favor father’s over mother’s in family court. No accountability and protection of children. If you are a woman who is thinking about marriage and family move out of Connecticut. If something should go wrong and you wind up in an abusive relationship. Your children are being abused the state has financial interest to protect the father. You and your children will likely not be protected. You run the risk of being axed, strangled or shot. The child custody to be granted to the a majority of cases no matter the situation.

        • The Department of Public Health is connected to the Office of Civil Rights. OCR has dragged out valid complaints against court appointed therapists like Robert Horwitz and Biren Caverly. They drag it out and then the GAL covers for them and says no wrongdoing. OCR is sadly, bought and paid for.

        • Attorney complaints are all but ignored at the BAR. They all protect each other. Going to civil court against attorneys is no better. The judges are in collusion with the attorneys. Mothers are being destroyed as are children. THankful to FR and the few news agengies that are brave enough to expose the blatant abuse.

          Jessica Biren Caverly is done. It was not helpful for Adleman to defend this ‘vendor’ in the memorandum of decision. This helped the feds.

          And Ambrose is proving he’s insane. Parental alienation after three years of isolation is not a viable argument. Now it’s Frank’s fault.

  • Ambrose- are you beginning to reassess the value of Nancy Aldrich?

    And your Jocelyn is equally as through with you… they’re going far far away from your delusions of grandeur.

    You need help Ambrose.

    • Does Ambrose actually think he has a legal claim against FR?

      Has he suggested anything is untrue? Truth is a defense.

  • It’s a shame he can’t come to terms with who he is. Chris Ambrose would be much happier if he could accept he is not heterosexual, but at his age it’s unlikely.

    Living a life of deceit must bring him perverse pleasure. Very sad for these teens. They should have a choice in where they live as the law provides for this.

      • He’s not a man. Real men don’t abuse children. It’s got nothing to do with sexuality.

        Living a lie is unhealthy. Maybe you live a lie and can’t see it.

        • And real women don’t make false accusations of child abuse against men. Ambrose was investigated and not a single accusation was found to be substantiated. Karen is the one who is living a lie.

          • “ I know there is no one underage on”

            “How do you know that if you’ve never been on the website?”

            Not a liar. Right.”

            Do you know if they surprised him in court with this Latino boys URL or did he know in advance so he could check it out and confirm it is adults?
            My impression is he knew what they were talking about via discovery and was able to confirm it was adults so it means nothing even if he did visit it, which I doubt he did, given that Karen had stolen and absconded with his computers. It’s much more likely that Karen typed that ludicrous URL into his computer in a pathetic attempt to frame him.

            Karen is just an unsuccessful Mrs. DiRubba. Thank God the courts recognized the horrible sh@t she was up to to avert a similar tragedy.

        • “ living a lie is unhealthy”

          Then why doesn’t Karen reveal the biggest lie? That she was living with Parlato in his home as his lover. That might shed some light on his motivation to destroy her ex.

          • “The two are in different states.”

            NOW they are. But she was living with him for quite a while, I hear. Don’t journalistic standards dictate disclosing close personal relationships with subjects? 🎀 at the least, dial down the hypocrisy about truth and lies.

          • You seem to know a lot about the facts and the evidence. Send them along and if warranted, we will publish them. Unless of course you’re a “pasty-white private investigator.” Yeah, I heard he thinks he’s good at that too.
