Litigant

Comment #: CA34801
Rating:1.0
Comments:
He refuses to allow my hearing to be held and has placed it off calendar on two occasions. He thinks he makes the rules and has ignored Cal. Rules of Court. I will be filing writ and complaint with Commission on Judicial Performance. I believe he is prejudice against pro per litigants. He does not follow court rules. Be very very careful. I hope to see him off the bench

-- 'Civil Litigator' just lost the jury, if this is their 'normal' speak. Could have said, "He was actually humorous, but *serious, when needed."
--The fact that this 'Civil Litigator', thought it was well reasoned, for them to say, ... he was actually humorous, but 'forceful', 'when needed'; is beyond startling and disturbing.
-- Perhaps, this 'Civil Litigator', would "highly recommend him" [Judge Karla]- but, arguably, many would not recommend, this 'Civil Litigator', if they knew about the statement they made.

I had an MSC with Judge Karla. The guy was truly awesome. He was actually humorous, but forceful when needed. I would highly recommend him.
