Comment #: CA48137
Judge Young is fair. I’ve seen her consider both parties. She is an advocate for “family”. She tries to encourage and ensure that both parents get a fair amount of visitation/custody with their children.

Who made her a judge? After everything she says is you know what I mean, she’s bias and unfair and I don’t think she needs to be serving as a judge in contra Costa County because she grew up in contra Costa county which means she knows a lot of people there and that makes her being a judge for contra Costa county a big conflict of interest and poor decision making rulings for the people she knows.. a big lawsuit on contra Costa county is what I see real soon if she doesn’t transfer to another county major conflict of interest.
