What others have said about Hon. Linda Lancet Miller



Comment #: CA8547
I thought she was a poor excuse for a judge. Wants to rule on nothing, leaving it to the litigants who wouldn't be there in the first place if they could adjudicate themselves. She acts as if both sides were lying. She shows preference to some lawyers. Just a horrible, nightmare experience before her.


Comment #: CA6123
They say that justice is blind.
Well, i 'll tell you that: Linda Miller is not!
She is a really fair judge, with genuine deeo knowledge of the law and dynamic. I wish more judges would be like her. It would make the system so much better.
When injustice suffocates you, Linda Miller is here to make it up.
She studies the case well, she listens well and she will take he fair side on!

Well done Linda Miller

Please, never change.


Comment #: CA4666
She is a completely incompetent, liberal judge. She rules on what is politically correct, as opposed to what is actually correct!

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: CA2966
Has common sense and an open mind, Willing to listen to unpopular contentions and to inform herself about unfamiliar areas. Pays attention to arguments and is not easily intimidated.
Has a pleasant demeanor.

Absolutely THE WORST JUDGE TO DATE. Refuses to try cases, much less listen! Wants EVERYTHING SETTLED OUT OF COURT...SO WHY??? DO WE NEED HER???? Californians please wake up and De-Robe this judge


Comment #: CA2625
Says she is for the child, but does the exact opposite. And if the father is military, she is excessively nasty and disrespectful towards them. Thanks to her, our once productive, honor roll student while living with us, was placed with his mother and dropped out of high school, and is completely out of control. Thank you Judge Miller for being directly responsible for creating another deadbeat who will suck off of the state of California. I'm just glad I don't live in California. My heart goes out to all those hard working California citizens who will have to pay for her mistakes.

Likes to talk in chambers, and not afraid to make a decision - don't plan on getting to trial any time soon, though. On a couple of occasions, she's made initial calls on issues, but after we've briefed the issue, she's reversed herself.

I like her as a family law judge. She is not easily misled by declarations and will listen to both sides in contempts/ TRO's before coming to a fair decision. She does tend to "prefer" certain lawyers, but even when appearing against these lawyers, she has been fair to me. Baliff Tony is the BEST!

Will not do a trial unless you have spent every dollar your client has to their name, then maybe, just maybe, you will be awarded a trial date. She continued one of my cases for two years, and eventually we did settle - we had no choice, since no one had any money left.


Comment #: CA84
She does not like trials which is great. I think most cases should be settled.
