What others have said about Hon. Marcelo D'Asero



Comment #: CA53337
Rating:Not Rated
I agree with every single one of these comments I went before Commissioner Marcelo D'Asero for a case regarding an eviction. He had no idea of my case. He kept saying “ oh I would have never signed this” as if he’s such a smart individual. Filled with pride and a lot of anger as I saw. He kept shutting me up everytime I tried to speak and when I would make a comment regarding my case he would start screaming literally yelling to shut me up. He was very rude and racist 100%. I tried explaining how the management company would not take my money for the rent payment and he insulted me saying that the management doesn’t want my charity money and that they want to get a paying tenant in there instead because I was approved by a “stay housed “ program to pay even more than what I owed but he said no and wouldn’t hear it every single time that I would speak he shut me up and even laughed at me and enjoyed telling me “ the sheriff is coming to lock you out “ the program protected me to not be evicted under a code until may 31 but he didn’t care. He is a cold hearted individual and I will not be surprised when he is all over the news when it all gets discovered and his dark secrets are exposed. That day will come rather quickly. He was evicting everyone and at the same time kept saying he didn’t know about the cases and didn’t want to work with anyone. He is a sad man doesn’t matter what title he has. Pride comes before the fall. He called me a poor person and told me to find a place to go. How does he sleep at night with such a conscious? all eventually comes to the light. Soon enough.


Comment #: CA48678
Commissioner Marcelo D'Asero displays mental health challenges during the hearings. Commissioner was unable to find information concerning different cases. Plaintiffs would have to remind the commissioner of his earlier rulings. The commissioner would often drop his head and shake his head repeatedly, as if Commissioner was having a nervous breakdown.

Commissioner refuses to allow litigants to present their case when they ask at the beginning of the hearing. Commissioner reads case notes, then throughout the hearing Commissioner speaks the opposite against the documentation of evidence. When Plaintiff's attempt to correct Commissioner, commissioner yells and tells Plaintiffs not to speak. Commissioner also insults litigants in open court.

As other ratings suggest, Commissioner D'Asero needs to be evaluated for mental disorders before drastic measures are warranted.

I sat in on a small claims calendar
This man has no business on the bench. He is insulting to the point of cruelty to the litigants. He acts like he is sitting on the appeals court the way he badgers the litigants. Advice to anyone. DO NOT STIPULATE TO HIM. 170 if necessary. The man has serious mental health issues


Comment #: CA47004
This Commissioner is everything these comments say he breaks the laws, and my dad went to a civil court case he had because he got scammed and filed a lawsuit against this person that stole from him, and the Commissioner Marcelo D`Asero is completely racist telling my father not to speak in Spanish. He even said to my father that he could not present any evidence in Spanish. This commissioner is filled with hate and discrimination. It seems It seems he is in favor of the delinquents instead of the hard working individuals that pay their taxes. He is a DISRESPECTUL RACIST.

This guy is quite possibly the most unhinged person in any court in the country. he has Zero self control the slightest thing will send him into a psychotic state which he has a hard time coming back from. It is very sad to watch. he belongs in a psychiatric hospital.

Commissioner is temperamental


Comment #: CA42273
Will not allow Counsel to present case. Interrupts, trivalizes the case and facts. Insults, Takes the facts, then bypasses the law, then gives his verdict. Justify interruption saying he only has minutes remaining. Does not allow defendant to answer to allegations, then dismisses the proceedings. Yells. Note: October 4, 2022, Commissioner D'Asero is now presiding in LA County, Antoniovich Courthouse, LA County Superior Court, 42011 4th Street West, Lancaster, CA 93534.
