Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: CA5741
Rating:4.0
Comments:
Marmaro is an absolute nightmare.

The running theme is - how can a guy who was obviously very successful as a business litigation attorney be so horrible as a judge?

He CONSTANTLY ignores the law or distorts/ignores facts to reach his "conclusions." There is no arguing your case with him - he's always right, of course.

He's a joke and I refuse to call him by the honorific "Judge," as he evidences no ability to do so in a reasonable and fair manner. I haven't heard one attorney say anything positive about him.

If you value your case, 170.6 him.

It's strange that someone who was obviously a skilled attorney in private practice would turn out to be such a terrible judge. He invents "rules" out of thin air and applies them stubbornly, even in the face of actual contrary binding authority. He doesn't listen - he's so sure he's always right, there's no need to.

Countless rulings in my case contrary to California family law. Made up his own laws in family court rulings. Cost me hundreds of thousands in legal fees in a simple family matter he dragged on and on in his first trial as a judge.
