What others have said about Hon. Bobbi Tillmon


Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: CA12357
She is as dishonest and disengenious as they come, she clearly favors big business, does not know the law, or worse yet does not follow the law, does not understand basic Civ. Pro 101, just like Trump's recent judicial appt. who could not define a motion in limine. She should go home, and stay there-she has had her run, and apparently has never learn to do the right thing, or learned anything at all about fairness, equity, justice or the law. RETIRE before you illegally hurt someone else in your courtroom!

Interesting how most litigants in her coutrtroom refer to her as a monster. While the attorney's on the take that know she was guilty of taking money under the table from the State before 2009 keep blowing smoke. She's so big now she should do an ad for Whale Watchers.

She is unfit for the bench. She's biased, sexist, and makes completely irrational decisions that makes you believe that she's been bribed. She's a monster and unfit in following the rule of law, and she's is incompetent in reading or reviewing evidence in case matters. She is a disgrace, our forefathers would banish her to another country.

I tried a case on an area of law that is not commonly litigated. That being said, Judge Tillmon read the briefs, the case law, and got up to speed on the issue. She was thorough, fair, and clear on her rulings. She was courteous to all counsel and witnesses and when sustaining evidentiary objections, allowed counsel time to re-phrase. Courtroom opened early and her clerk allowed counsel to set up early.

For the first time in my destroyed all of that. It's obvious she hates men and sits on the board of several non-profits for battered woman. It not only makes her biased but it's probably where she launders all the bribe money she takes. Along with all of the family court traitors that should be tried, and convicted for bribery, fraud, theft, kidnapping, multiple felonies, wire and male fraud,and unspeakable crimes against humanity that spans over 20 years.I couldn't tell you that Bobbie Tillman's treatment, concern, or compassion rises above that of even our history's worst serial killers.

In some ways she's more sadistic. Serial killers kill the person. This heartless skank gets off destroying men's lives financially to let them suffer financially thus destroying any dreams they may have and destroying their relationship with their children. Probably 90% of the time she decides divorce or child support based on what the female is asking for. She probably is one of the singularly most grotesque cavernous shrew to ever wear that robe. She is a traitor to her profession, to American citizens, and to the Bill of Rights. If the rest of the Judges and members of the CA bar weren't as equally as dirty, quality of life would return to California. While these evil scumbags get dropped in landfill.

Very even tempered. Helpful to the attorneys. Works a full day: 9 am to 4:15 or 4:30.

Judge Tillmon is an excellent trial judge. I tried a complex medical malpractice case before her. She has a perfect judicial temperament, jurors love her. She is very evenhanded, and extremely patient. She is very polite, never interrupts (and even when she does, she does so courteously). I would not rather try my case in front of any other judge.

I've been before Judge Tilmon and I felt she was calm, fair, listened well and issued well prepared tentative's. She not afraid to modify her tentative if relevant oral arguments are made or if there was an oversight.

I was a litigant who came before this Judge and, to my dismay, discovered that there are, in fact, corrupt and truly abhorrent people who get "elected" to the superior court. If you come before this judge, you too will see why she is corrupt; there is evidence in her past of bribery -- both giving and taking -- and she was forced to testify in the trial of a peer during his indictment and eventual conviction of bribing his way to a judgeship.

There is no doubt that Ms. Tillmon did the exact same in 2006, when she gained a seat in LA county Superior Court. She side-stepped an indictment then because attention was on a more egregious case of the same thing. Her entry into being a judge was positively corrupt and she snaked by without charges. Now 8 years have passed and she's kept her seat the whole time because she was an unchallenged incumbent. Every year, over and over, she keeps a seat on the bench, and in the back of her head, she knows she makes nearly $200k a year at a job she is neither skilled at, nor qualified for. The people would never have elected this filth; I know that for a fact. She obviously does too, as the only way to gain entry was via a juicy bribe to her competitor (who took it, allowing Ms. Tillmon her coveted seat on the bench).

A stupid judge warrants your fear, but what about a savvy + greedy and dirty one? Well, if you go before this judge, you will see corruption in all its glory. Litigants that show up pro se will get no say. She can barely contain her smirk through your day in court, for she knows something you don't. Tee-hee. She's already formed her opinion of you, off of the way you dress, the way you talk, maybe she even got her grubby little hands on the police database to see if you've ever been arrested. Listening during court she is not, justifying her opinion she does not, no, this Bobbi with an 'i" (and a little heart for the dot in the i) is changing the world one battered woman at a time. Oh, way to go Ms. Tillmon on maria letitia vasquez, you know, the girl who demanded you give her a restraining order for her husband but whom you refused. The one who was stabbed to death, on your watch, in front of the courthouse....did her crying in front of you make you sick? Oh, thats right, I forgot! you turned the page in the newspaper and pushed that scene out of your mind, never to think of it again. Unfortunately, her 6 year old son didn't get that opportunity. He watched as his dad stabbed his mother in front of 100 people. And, to think, all of it could have been avoided if you just listened to the woman's pleas....and you know, heeded them.

You are a terrible person, greedy and rotten soul....but you probably already know that, don't you? As long as that $186,000 veteran judge salary keeps rolling in, your mercedes won't be repossessed like it was before your glory days as a failing attorney, fresh out of USC's affirmative action program....all that taxpayer money, what, at 8 years now? Shit, your little bribe has earned you one million back! It's amazing what a little greed can do for an old fat bitch. You planning on keeping this judgeship until the end? Shit, you could rake in a cool 2 million by then. And to think, none of it would have happened if you had won the election legitimately....all that money would be money you took, that did not legally belong to you....and then they might ask for it back. I hope you've plugged all the holes Bobbi Tillmon, because the DA just might get a packet of evidence one of these years that will void your whole career. Now wouldn't that be somethin'? A judge being judged!

She is absolutely UNREASONABLE, I paper her every time I get her on a case. She is the worst judge in the West District Limited by far.....
