Comments:
Gerlach violated the Supremacy Clause then argued a red herring that I was vexatious to conceal his constitutional violations. He denied judicial notice of 9th Circuit rulings and filings. Maybe he's OK for simple complaints, but not complex constitutional matters. He did not read anything I submitted, and I've won three appeals in this case!

Judge Douglas Gerlach is very thorough and fair minded to both sides. He will listen to the issues, evaluate carefully. provide both sides with equal consideration. I was not sure how the process worked but after having Judge Douglas Gerlach as the judge in an HOA issue, I realized that he was going to evaluate the case on the facts --- not just what the other side was trying to portray. Fair minded and intelligent judge. He allowed justice and the truth to prevail.
