Thankfully, Osario is a Judge who actually reads the briefs. Attentive to detail and reasonable.

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: CA13499
Extremely sharp judge. Very personable. If he were a doctor, I would give him a 10 for good bed manners. Don't try to fool him. Nothing escapes his vigilance.
Abides by the law. Period.

very unfair to pro per litigants and sides with attorneys as if best friends

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: CA4170
I sat in Judge Osorio's courtroom a few months back, after the layoffs in the Los Angeles courts. One thing that struck me was that he denied a creditor's motion to compel because the introductory language in the creditor's discovery requests cited to the old CCP sections (e.g., "Please take notice that, pursuant to California Code of Civil Procedure Section 2033...") The debtor/defendant did not appear. This told me two things: 1) that he's a stickler for details; and 2) that he could be pro-consumer. His discovery sanctions awards were extremely modest where granted (people asking for $1,000 got $300). He has a good sense of humor and kept things light. Seems like a decent judge.
