Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: CA25313
Rating:1.0
Comments:
I have rarely in my life been in the presence of such rude and angry people as one will now encounter in Dept. 16 at Stanley Mosk court. The staff and the Court are should not be permitted to work in a courtroom nor in any realm of public service in this state. They do not possess the requisite temperments, nor do they have any desire to serve the public They are despicable. They were grumpy the entire first few days until finally I caught them alone, laughing and poking fun at the litigants and their counsel. Dare not challenge the Court or her staff or even question them in any way. The clerk will get in your face and shake her finger and say stupid things. You will be met with anger and furiosity beyond belief. The Court is no better. She is passive aggressive to an extreme. She will say off the wall things. 170.6 her. Don't wait.

This is one of those judges that should not be on the bench. It is that simple. It is as if she finally got some power in her life and wants to use it and abuse it. Her rule on court call is that if you are not checked in by 8:55, you cannot appear. You just have to hang up and call back at 2:00 to see what happened at your hearing. She won't even allow an explanation. If you don't file a CMC statement, even if you were not served with the complaint in time to file a timely one, she won't listen to you at the CMC - literally, she cuts you off and ends the hearing.

Understand that she is a mean leftist. 170.6 immediately. Stanley Mosk is a rotting cesspool of mean lawyers and judges. The system has failed and Calif. is on a huge rapid decline. The dirty rotten lawyers got what they desired, a lousy pathetic job and a cardiac assault waiting to happen.
