Rating:Not Rated
There are low standards for judges in Calif. Judge (ha) Santana fits in to this category. He is just in a hurry to get rid of his daily calendar so he can escape into his chambers. He looks exhausted and miserable. He is currently running for reelection. Don't vote for him. Let him retire, admire his pension and be gone.


Comment #: CA8221
Landlord-Tenant dispute. Horrible judge. I do not know how he was able to become a judge. This guy doesn't even look at evidence and makes his own decision based on Plaintiffs bs. I had 20 pages worth of legit evidence which he didn't even look at. He didn't even make a decision in court, I was mailed the decision few days after. Very ridiculous. The justice system is screwed up and has so many flaws.

An outrageously horrible judge.


Comment #: CA7905
This is the worst judge I have ever seen in the Los Angeles County judicial system. The judge does not understand even the basic laws. His presence as a judge is truly outrageous to litigants.


Comment #: CA4416
He's glib and doesn't value the perspective of the citizen. He's placating and rude.


Comment #: CA4347
Judge Ray Santana at the Superior Court of Los Angeles at Metropolitan Branch Court, 1945 Hill Street, L.A., CA 90007 worked a evil conspiracy today with evil LAPD officer Brown, badge # 33836.
