Horrific. Won't remove self on Preemporty challenge, despite obvious grounds. Takes sides and bribes.


Comment #: CA10634
My "hearing" was heard and in dismissed in the matter of 35 seconds. Hardly an unbiased judge whom delivers judgement without any sense of hearing.

Terrible attitude and blatantly states that he would rather be golfing (or drinking according to his arrest record).

We recently had a motion hearing. He did not respond with an opinion until 10 weeks later, which means he did not remember what the attorneys said at the motion. His ruling was one-sided, did not consider the elements of the case, applicable State Law or Case Law. He simply quoted out of the papers from the one side.

I'm a plaintiff's attorney. After a year of waiting, I finally got a CMC. I asked Judge Parker for a trial date ASAP, but the defense counsel asked for a new CMC, in three months, on the ground that he had not conducted any discovery. Judge Parker reamed out the defense counsel for awhile, and then abruptly set a new CMC for 22 months in the future. Not a trial date, a CMC: 22 months. I couldn't believe my ears, so I immediately (and politely) asked Judge Parker to repeat the date, and he angrily replied, "I can't remember."

To make matters worse, when we get the new CMC, the trial date will almost certainly have to be scheduled after the three-year discretionary dismissal period. While I was sitting and watching the call of the calendar, another case was near the three-year period. The defense counsel said he was not going to file a motion to dismiss for delay in prosecution, but the Judge badgered him, telling him that he really should. That's right: He told the defense counsel what dispositive motion to make, and he strongly, strongly implied he would grant the motion when it was presented.

It makes me wonder whether that is Judge Parker's plan for my lawsuit. And I don't have the slightest inkling what he has against me or my client.

Arrogant, makes threats. Thug with power.


Comment #: CA2541
Judge does not know the law or follow it. Rules on what he "believes." I thought it was a court room, not a church. Disgraceful.


Comment #: CA2535
Sat as a courtroom observer for a special project and saw Judge Parker flex his prejudice against Punjabi litigants more than once. Considering the demographic of his district, this is a bit concerning. Pretty obviously biased and intolerant. His hubris and "ivory tower" attitude was far from objective. A sad case of a man who is in need of retirement. Easily flustered and put off by everyone including his court staff.

Vindictive person. If you disagree with him you will never see even justice from him
