Judge Newman is fair, patient, knows the law, and works hard. As a litigant, she has all the qualities that a civil litigant should want in a judge.

Comment #: CA6673
Horrible judge sides with landlord no matter if they are wrong and fraudulent! I had a business partner and informed OSM owner Michael Orwitz that I would not be renewing lease. Craig former business partner applied and got a new lease. 1 year later he failed to pay 2 months and was evicted. Later he paid 1 month and owed 1. They served an unlawful detainer without my knowledge on a business i no longer own. In addition I never received mail at that location (I had requested that when I was on the lease and -have the evidence). Kristi Gasaway attorney for OSM turned 2k into 12K. After recruiting help from a wonderful attorney friend we both felt it would obviously be thrown out for 1.I did not renew lease 2. I was never served 3. It was no longer my business. Well it was not judge Nancy L. Newmman from Santa Monica court upheld the unlawful detainer saying I had plenty of time to respond to something I was never aware no served with.
