Comment #: CA13530
She is certifiably nuts.

Comment #: CA13268
Trys hard to appear even handed. Some biasis stand out. But it does not appear to be people of color, mental disability, sex bias, not really. But as human nature oft does. She will vote towards the litigant or attorney she likes the best. She talks tough but does not always enforce, can easily flip flop.

The rulings this woman has made have been devastating to the welfare and best interests of my children during their critical developmental years. She is cruel and blindly rules in favor of father's. She does not enforce her own court orders on fathers however, she will threaten and punish mother's that are accused of order violations. She appears disheveled and looks glassy, red eyed as if she just woke up after a stiff drink of hard liquor. She is scary.

In a settlement conference in a backroom of Marin County Superior Court, without the presence of a court reporter, this "Judge" yelled at me, threatened me and extorted me. She stated that if I was to fight for custody of my daughter, she would make sure I would never get to see her again and she would go after my mother's assets. At a later date I came to find out that she does this routinely with many other parents. A forensic psychiatric evaluation of this "Judge" is in order. She needs to get yanked off the bench immediately and stand trial at the International Criminal Court in The Hague for her Human Rights violations.

Judge Wood is blatantly biased towards the fathers. She doesn't care how dangerous for the child.

Judge Wood just dismantled the CASA program in Marin County in her first two weeks as a dependency judge because she "didnt like" the black Executive Director. CASA helps kids in the dependency system who have been neglected or abused.

Comment #: CA10507
She is a deplorable figure of liberty and fairness. She has a staunch reputation - accross the county - of being pro-father, at the expense of the mother. I've heard this from multiple attorneys, who are not in any way connected. That is a bad sign for a judge. Further, she follows up on the reputation and falls to protect children from abusive parents, even with viable legal alternatives. She has done her best to ruin multiple families and she is unfit to serve as a judge.


Comment #: CA10357
Beverly Wood denied me of my constitutional rights without any recourse.


Comment #: CA5879
She would not look at evidence and would take things out of context--such as text messages, etc. She clearly sides with men. She did not care at all that I was assaulted by this man. She would not look at Dr's notes and records or pictures of my bruises and she would not let me tell my side of the story. I was guilty before proven innocent-instead of the other way around. With all the evidence I had against my attacker, there is no way that he should have been granted a restraining order against me. She had a bias against me from the start.
