Eventually he’ll get what he deserves. I followed the case of a litigant in Lief’s courtroom for almost a full year until finally a case came along that was so damning it made him a compromised judge. The same will happen to Lund eventually. It’s only a matter of time, and I’m not going anywhere.

In response to: “He sure is arrogant and has the nerve to write about himself. I'm not impressed nor will he ever get respect from me. He's lousy as a judge and deserves to receive the karma he deserves.”

RE: CA37736

Dear "Other,"

Your post is typical of self-serving posts made by the Judge in question or an associate.

Here is a sample of the feedback we have received from the community regarding Judge Lund:

From Woman #1 on 10/20/2021: "Judge Lund is a monster and I need help."

From Woman #2 on 10/7/2021: "Judge Lund is the Devil. I'm glad I came across your website in the matter of Judge Roger Lund. He is despicable and shouldn't hold the title of being a judge in any capacity... He should've been removed a long time ago."

These are just a few of the emails I've received within the past month.

Good judges don't get any reports by the public made on them, and it takes great courage to reach out to a stranger such as Radiant Truth to report when a judge has wronged you. Outing a judge is a courageous act that is a strong indicator of truth. The public should take note.

Very Truly,

Ventura County's Radiant Truth

He's so unprofessional, it's laughable! He doesn't read his court hearing thoroughly because if he did. He would have made sure that important documents were notarized instead of appointing executors over an estate who've committed fraud and forgery. He thinks he's above the law!

When others try to quash, truthful information, to cover for wrongdoers and/or themselves, they kick open a door so wide, they will not be able to repair it; and victims' of the wrongdoers, or their protectors', will just become more detailed and vocal and write more information, supporting facts, involving the egregious wrongdoings and wrongdoers; and advocates such as court staff/ Ventura's Radiant Truth , will do the same.

RE: CA37500

Notice how the Editor goes silent once the CJP document is quoted in detail. The CJP describes a judge taking bribes, including exact dollar amounts (e.g. $1,499 from a lawyer defendant and $1,000 from his law partner), including how he used an illicit campaign finance fund to whitewash the money. This isn’t just a technical violation of reporting requirements LOL. The CJP wouldn’t issue a public censure if it were as minor as the Editor tries to make it.

The Editor’s pro-judge bias needs to end. The proof is right there, and I linked to the CJP admonishment document so the people can decide for themselves.

Lund and Walsh are like two peas in the pod, and birds of a feather flock together.

The Editor is incorrect and has displayed a very pro-judge bias intended to protect judges even from their own CJP admonishments.

The reader can look at the CJP admonishment themselves and make their own determination: https://cjp.ca.gov/wp-content/uploads/sites/40/2016/08/Walsh_02-10-16.pdf

According to the CJP admonishment, Judge Walsh did not believe he was required to disclose ANY contributions to his campaign AFTER his election. "The commission noted that the judge's position severely restricts the extent of disclosure of campaign contributions and leads to the result that post-election contributions would never be disclosed."

The commission pointed out several questionable post-election contributions from attorneys that violated conflict of interest rules and Canon 3E. Walsh failed to report these contributions to attorneys involved in cases where there were conflicts of interest. He then proceeded to rule in favor of parties that had made post-election contributions to his campaign AFTER he had already won.

The CJP noted received contribution examples of $1,499 from a defendant, $1,000 from the defendant's law partner, and $250 from a plaintiff. These are parties Judge Walsh directly benefited through misuse of his office by ruling in their favor. (See page 2, last paragraph of the CJP admonishment.) To argue that the illicit contributions had nothing to do with his ruling is absolute bullshit and is purposely misleading the readers of TRR. The Editor needs to take a step back and analyze who exactly they are protecting and why.

According to the CJP admonishment (Page 3), "Judge Walsh's failure to disclose campaign contributions after the election deprived the parties and attorneys appearing before him of information to which they were entitled."

Also according to the CJP admonishment, (Page 3), "The perception of an impartial and independent judiciary is fundamental to public respect for the judicial system and the rule of law... failure to disclose can give rise to public distrust in the independence and impartiality of the judiciary."

This is information Judge Walsh and other judges in Ventura do not want you to know. Our courts are ripe with Corruption!

Dear Other,

I’m sorry you’re going through this. There have been numerous complaints on Lund, but I haven’t run across anything particularly damning yet. I’m not aware of any CJP admonishments for example unlike other judges.

Corruption is a big problem in Ventura, and it has been for a long time, decades even. In the 50s the courts allowed an illegal casino to operate in Simi Valley for example. Cronyism doesn’t surprise me at all, and I suspect it’s even worse than that. Judge Walsh used his old campaign finance accounts AFTER he won election to solicit bribes from attorneys (read the CJP admonishment on Walsh, it’s all there). Where there’s smoke there is often fire, and unfortunately I believe your intuition that Lund is taking bribes is most likely correct.

Very Truly,

Ventura County’s Radiant Truth
[Editor's note: Judge Walsh was not admonished for taking bribes. There are no public allegations of same, let alone an admonishment. The same is true for Judge Lund]

My experience with Judge Lund was depressing. He is uninterested in hearing anything that conflicts with his predetermined conclusions. He completely disregarded the Court Investigator's recommendations. And worst of all, there was obvious cronyism between him and certain attorneys.

My experiences with Judge Lund caused me to lose faith in the system.

Roger L Lund is the worst judge that I've ever seen and heard from the country and/or from the world. He is always bias and continues to be bias against me and others in the Ventura County Court. He is always ignorant, horrible, rude, misbehaving, mistreating me, lying to me, abusing me as a victim, breaking a lot of violations of CA state laws and possibly including some criminal laws, refusing to read and investigate all of my proof, evidence, reference, and witnesses on my side. 

He never, never, and never lets me talk, say, or show him anything that I need to tell him and show him because it's against the law that I have to do that with him. He is always asking me to talk and seconds after, he stops me and shushes me. If he wants me to do and say that, well then it doesn't make any sense and it's pointless why he's telling me to do and say what he wants if he's going to stop me and shush me as a victim with all of the proof, evidence, reference, and witnesses that I have and continue having. He is always helping, protecting, and supporting the bad people and the suspects. He is never helping, protecting, and supporting the victims, like me and others. It's illegal that he has verbally accused me and my witnesses wrongfully and on purpose, to protect and support the suspects. Always when I go there and continue going there, he continues to do all of this non-stop and he's making me waste my time from working 4 part-time jobs that I have, from me going to class and studying at a university, from doing aarons, and from doing anything else important or not important.

This judge needs to be remove and should not be allow to be a judge because he does not know how to be like one and like other judges. He should also be remove of him breaking civil and criminal laws of CA state laws and USA laws. He has also done a lot of misconduct against me and others. It's against the law that him as a judge needs to obey what the laws and the Superior Courthouse say and require him to do, not what he wants to do or say by breaking a lot of violations of the CA state laws and USA laws.

Dear defense,

Lund is known to us for bias against women. He is a Mormon who believes women should stay in their lane.

Has he ever ruled in favor of a rape survivor? I bet he hasn’t. Women have a right to be believed.

[Redacted by Ed.]He is unbelievably rude and bias. He makes decisions outside the courtroom with attorney’s with whom he is friendly. He ignores the blatant perjury of those he chooses to support. He does not read documentation, or pay attention to investigative conclusions. Judge Lund does not let people speak in his court for more than a few seconds before he is degrading them and jumping to conclusions. He makes snap decisions and commits to them. This judge has too much power and is hurting people. He needs to be removed and his cases reheard.

Dear Other,

Thank you for posting about your experience with Judge Lund.

I advocate for victims of legal abuse to expose corruption in our courts and bring light to victims’ stories to hold accountable those responsible for the fraud and abuse. I wish to help.

Judge Lund’s behavior seems to represent a pattern of bias within the Ventura courts against victims and in favor of abusers. It is wrongful for a judge to display outright discrimination against victims solely for their survivor status. Victims have a right to be believed.

I am interested in hearing about your case. If you wish to share, I can be reached at RadiantTruth@pm.me.

Do NOT vote for Judge Lund. He practices "scorched earth litigation" tactics and "vexatious litigation" to coerce individuals, not within his jurisdiction, to do what he demands. He ignores the law, mismanages cases, and has a disturbing bias against women. He abuses his power and manipulates the system.

Dear Public,

I have run across information that judge Lund has shown bias against women in favor of abusers, awarding judgements to perpetrators against their victims for only the insolence of complaining about the abuse. You should 170.6 and get a real judge who will actually listen.

I have been in Judge Lunds court 4 times and every time he was cruel and harsh and sided with my ex even though I brought evidence of court orders being broken by my ex and his girlfriend with drinking and driving and five years of evidence of domestic violence. 5 DUIs a piece on their record and one since my daughter's been there. He didn't care that my ex broke the strict no drinking order or that my daughter was witnessing domestic violence and was mauled by their vicious family dog in the face . Why and how is he a judge? He has no conscience and I was warned by other women before entering the courtroom. This is a travesty of Justice and my daughter is in immenint danger.

Horrible judge, this man needs to be removed from court. He is a complete disgrace to any judicial process. This man threw documented perjury out of court, even coerced my ex into saying "This must have been a misunderstanding am I correct?" No, it was completely false allegations that he allowed and acted on in court. He detests woman and should not be allowed in family court or any court for that matter.

I was warned before entering Lund's court how I should appear. My first attorney told me what to wear, no make up, no heels, high collar shirts. I even had two other attorneys refuse my case unless I was able to get another judge. This man hates woman he will go in favor of the man even if he has a criminal history. I was shocked how bias he was, completely unfair down right cruel at times.

Judge Lund is extraordinarily prejudiced against women. He will take a perjured statement from a man, over hard, documented evidence from a woman.

He lacks the ability to comprehend case law, and routinely fails to follow judicial guidelines.

This man should be removed. He should never be allowed near a courtroom again.

One of the rudest family judges I have seen. Predisposed to the husband in divorce settlement. Curt and threatening. Seemed to dislike lawyer and took it out on litigant. No regard for wife's situation. Pro male without looking at specific details. Not Ventura County quality. Lawyers feel he's angry to be reassigned in this position and not in criminal court anymore.

Horrible judge. One of the worst family law judges I've ever dealt with in Ventura. Patently sexist, very biased against women. God complex. Apparently quite popular with his judicial peers, but to litigants and attorneys, simply awful, awful, awful. Local appellate court has overturned family court rulings, and rightly so. Routinely papered, and thankfully left the family law department a while back. Should be voted off the bench.

He has no business being in the courtroom. I would confidently venture as far as to say he lacks the mental capacity, or integrity, to oversee anything - especially children in the most minute of details.
When attorneys are secretly flipping him off in his courtroom, you see what kind of respect he garners.

No judge can remember everything about a case before him. This judge makes orders, and then forgets and apparently doesn't take the time to look over his previous minutes/orders. He appointed a Public Guardian in a case, meaning the disabled person is no longer the "Respondent" then for about 18 months forgot to have the Guardian there to represent the disabled person. This is procedurally wrong. He also, states orders that make no sense. I only wish there was an official that would make him look at his mistakes of procedure.
