Oh this judge has more than favorites, and he does not follow the due process of law AT ALL, strips people of their rights, and works simultaneously with corrupt lawyers that will do anything to torture kids and a family for a pretty penny. Darkness does NOT win though, evil is ALWAYS reckoned.

If there is a single person in power who reads any of these, please do something about Donald F Gaffney before we do. He has already made us out to be criminals in one way or another because we want to be apart of our children's lives and as much as we already don't like being called criminals [Recacted by Ed.]

This judge allows an abuse of perjury to obtain orders of protection in Orange County with no evidence. Orange County has ordered me to pay child support, child care and extra-curricular activites that would lead to my falling behind and being prosecuted for it.


No one can lose this much of income and pay their bills. But this judge is fine with it happening to those who don't have the same immunity as the judge in OC. Donald Gaffney is a fraud. This judge is what is wrong with this nation. Everything he says is empty political lip service. Family court judges, such as Donald Gaffney need to be held accountable for what he has thus far said. We need to punish perjury that obtain orders of protection that are rubber stamped by spineless judges who hide behind their immunity.

I hope that Donald will reform the family courts in their entirety, brining equality and ending the corruption. Cameras should be in all court rooms with audio recordings. Criminal judges who do not reform and bring equal shared parenting must be charged and removed. Depriving a citizen of due process as a reprisal for speaking out is criminal and needs to be handled accordingly. Violating state and federal law to strip a citizen of their children is inhumane and deserves the stiffest penalty. I do not trust the Donald Gaffney or anyone in the Orange County family court system. I am still looking for the first person in all of OC who has the courage to state publicly that they will pursue reform in these orders of protection hearings and end parental alienation and recognize it as child abuse.

What is my crime? I don't want to be an every other weekend father! I Want 50/50 time and no child support... for wanting equality, you will be harassed and bullied. I am now forced to be 100 yards away from my little boy for 450 days in a row or I will go to jail.

Judge Gaffney is as backwards and inhumane as ANTIFA and the Black Lives Matter idiots. He lacks any kind of intelligence and when he gets angry, he just starts throwing orders around without any reason or explanation for their purpose.
[Redacted by Ed.]
Gaffney has lost his ability to think clearly, has lost the trust of the people and their outlook on our judiciary system in its entirety, hold himself to an ethical standard of a judge, and lastly, his ability to control his own courtroom. He does not make the rules or enforce the laws, the attorneys do. If it wasn't for most of the attorneys or pro per litigants, he wouldn't have any idea where to go or what to do in most cases.
[Redacted] Please, anybody who has the ability, hear the voices of all the parents he has hurt and get him out of the courts for good. Maybe those parents should take over the courthouse like the CHOP in Seattle.
All you need to do is remove Gaffney.

What's even more interesting about the fact that this judge is 100% narcissist. Why would you want to put yourself in the hands of this judge and have another attorney casting lies against you in a court room being judged by a man who wears a black dress calling himself a judge or even more laughable an "honorable" judge? Why would you want to put yourself through even more hell and throw yourself upon the mercy of wolves called attorneys and judges? Lastly, why would you want to put yourself in a courtroom full of evil narcissists who are all allowed to lie on the witness stand, give false witness, false testimony, or slander, and to have hearsay treated as fact or evidence? Lying is expected and in my opinion encouraged, narcissists love to lie daily and the opposite of an narcissist typically doesn't lie. Anyone good person who goes before this judge will be like Daniel put into the lions den. This is such an evil situation and the narcissistic spouse knows it and loves this situation and knows their outcome will go heavily their way most of the time. I encourage everyone to stay out of the family court of Gaffney, or Divorce Corp, or anti-family court. This judges is so evil to the core.. he is Lucifer and he will destroy you once he detects your spouse is the narcissist. He will devour you and you will never ser your children again.
Happy 4th of July Donald Gaffney.

If you want to know what kind of Judge Gaffney is read the 172 page Supreme Court case, Bostock v. Clayton County to get an idea.

In law-school, one of the classes you must take is Statutory Interpretation. You will be dumbfounded while reading the majority opinion. I honestly don’t know how law-school textbooks across the country on Statutory Interpretation can stay in print after the reasoning in that decision.

The judges knew what they were doing, just like Gaffney knows of the foolish decisions he is ineffably making at North Justice Center in Fullerton. Judges are smart enough to know that they were bold-faced lying. Six judges on the highest court, lying straight through their teeth, no different what you will experience from this Harvard educated judge. There is no other way to put it. You will learn a valuable lesson on the depravity of mankind while reading that case just as you also will sadly learn it if you are unfortunate enough to have Donald as your judge.

Family court judge Gaffney, like these judges abandon their role and their duty. The ends must have justified the means, in their minds, and the means were displays of intellectual dishonesty so egregious, I am still in awe weeks later that Gaffney can be most cunningly deceptive a judge as you will ever meet. I could elaborate on the technical ways in which they deliberately lied and Gaffney is no better, but I’ll refrain as that would require much more typing, and the dissenting opinions are sufficient and easily accessible (although not as blunt as they could have been, in my opinion). Let’s just say that, while the average non-lawyer might not be able to see what improper lengths Gaffney and many judges today will go to, they, as brilliant legal minds, Harvard educated know exactly what they are doing. I will conclude that you will not meet a more terrible tyrant or monster in the justice system as this judge Donald Gaffney

It's frightening to see the impact and mentality this judge has in destroying families right before your eyes. This judge needs cameras in the court room to keep him accountable. He tears children from their homes. He's dumped in family court because of being a 100% moron and political hack. No one would ever dare putting him in a civil court or the supreme court because reporters would have have a field day with Gaff. At least in family court.. no one an the corruption.

Gaffney is an angry New York ghetto black who had his nose broken by his father when he was 9.

This anger comes out in his rulings, and often his temperment where he is known to curse and yell on the bench.

A lot of the problem is he is stupid, as evidenced by horrible Law School Admissions Test Scores. Then he played the Affirmative Action Race card to get to Harvard, just like Clarence Thomas.

How you can have bad test scores and go to Harvard you ask? Well, write a letter saying you're a poor black who was abused as a child. Good for Gaffney, but who did he talk to in Law School? The rich white kids? It's a very unfortunate experience which just made him angrier, just like being quickly fired from several jobs out of law school until he began working for the Goernment, which he's never stopped.

There's a lot of suffering, anger and misery in this poor abused ghetto black -- and misery loves company. He loves to make miserable whoever he can.

And he's stupid, so the processes in his courtroom are all screwed up. He doesn't understand even basic law and procedure, so he just fakes it. The faking is stressful for him, especially when he's afraid he's about to be caught, and then he lashes out.

There's also a great deal of corruption with Gaffney being stuck as a municipal court judge the first decade as a judge. This is what happens sometimes with stupid judges who only got there due affirmative action. But Gaffney is really stupid because normally even the affirmative action judges can work past their shortcomings. Not Gaffney for almost 10 years. He's a disaster.

So there's an angry abused ghetto black who had his nose broken by his daddy at age 9 trying to ruin as many people's lives as possible, and most of those people are children. He's not trying to help anybody or do the right thing either. He's just miserable. It's not his fault. He's a victim of his horrible upbringing creating lifelong emotional problems.

He's been "sucking off the government's tit" his whole life, affirmative action, etc., and he takes everything he can get for free, but it makes him angrier.

It would do Gaffney a lot of good to go make it on his own and not have to keep living as such a fraud. He's dump and doesn't understand the law even a little bit. Who did he spend time talking to at school afterall? Not his smart rich white classmates. He's just faking it and it's very stressful for him. He's miserable, and likes to make whoever he can miserable. He doesn't understand trying to do the right thing, as he feels the right thing was not done to him as a child and so on.

Gaffney is dumb and angry. He has no chance or ability to even try to be a good judge. It's not his fault as he is a victim of society, abusive parents, ghetto upbringing.

I will be kind in this review. Gaffe lacks basic common sense. Though he is smart he lacks the ability to apply basic knowledge and has minimalistic interpersonal skills and is a poor judge in character. The 1 word to describe this judge: HUBRIS.
In half a decade I have NEVER seen him give 50/50 to both parents. NEVER. Inequality, corruption and giving custody to the parent that throws the most money in his campaign. He is a failed criminal judge who destroys life after life after life. Read the reviews. Search his name on the internet. There is no evidence he is a good judge. After knowing someone for only 2 hours he destroys lives of parents and alienates. I have over 100 positive references from women that I am anything but a rapist. He falls for false allegations. If you want to know who the worst judge in America is.. check out Donald Gaffney. Even the most wanted FBI terrorists have a better reputation then this. He graduated from Harvard, just proves how poor standards that this school has. They will take anyone who will pay enough money. Donald Gaffney, you are reading this review, I have a book recommendation that you need to read, to be a better judge. Read Malcolm Gladwell's book on Talking To Strangers. Maybe you won't destroy as many families after reading this book. Also read a book on how children need both parents equally instead of alienating every mother and father.

The corruption of this California judge is just the tip of the ice berg. Entering his court room is like being forced in a black hole of which you will never escape alive. All his buddies, lawyers, monitors, legal assistants love this judge, because he makes them rich in his Machavellian money grab to seize parents bank accounts and get away with as much extortion as possible threatening jail and criminalizing parents who only want to be with their kids.

My wife has been in a horrible custody battle with her ex over my stepson and this "judge" just keeps wasting time and taxpayer money even though she has proven that this case in its entirety is illegal and should have been dismissed
years ago.
My wife had the family law facilitator call her after her judgement was returned by the court clerk due to the case having been filed as a dissolution when it should have been filed as a paternity and because of some small things like signatures.
The facilitator instructed my wife to file an FL300 or RFO300 and write the reasoning for the order was because of the improper filing and that this case should be dismissed.
My wife filed the order and had a hearing set in Dec. Of 2019, in which the judge stated that had she filed the proof of service correctly, he would have been signing the dismissal. Then she gets another court date in Feb. Of 2020.
She goes in and now the judge states that he is going to send it to his "legal research team" and sets yet another court date in May 2020. Why would you, after having more than two months to investigate the matter, then need to refer it to some non existant team when you, the judge are supposed to know the laws and better yet, after the Family Law Facilitator was the one who instructed my wife on how to proceed with her case?
Judge Gaffney has done nothing but aide my stepsons father and his attorney in alienating my wife as well as the rest of her family including our 12 yr old son, my stepsons big brother, throughout the entire 4 years that this case has been under his control. He has repeatedly hurt my family and my sons have been the ones to pay the ultimate price because of his inability to follow the law or have any sense of a moral compass. It is sad, unfortunate and true.

He is the worst judge a person Could possibly imagine having. He has zero patience. He’s rude, condescending and completely biased. He told me that he would not look at my evidence because I had already wasted 15 minutes of his time on a restraining order case. I had 4 years worth of evidence in an accordion, But it was really a relevant because I wasted 15 minutes of his time. It is important to note that I had no attorney and my ex-husband had an expensive, high powered legal team. I guess I’ll have to put up with abuse, harassment, etc. because I wasted 15 minutes of Judge Gaffney’s time. I don’t know how it’s possible to have people like Gaffney serving the public. I have seen several judges throughout my 4 year divorce proceedings and this guy tops the Horrible scale!

While some may comment that Judge Gaffney has no personality and while agree that he can be overly harsh against minor criminal defendants (several years back)... while on the bench, I admire that he remains very even tempered. One gets the same demeanor every time. Currently, as he is primarily a Family Court Judge I can appreciate that when attempting to resolve party conflicts, this Judge rarely interrupts and is VERY good at giving all parties and their attorneys a fair opportunity to be heard to completion.

This comment is not libelous and is submitted in good faith so please do not delete this posting like my other ones that were posted in good faith.

Judge Gaffney is a predator. He, just like all predators, thrives knowing he is hurting families and their children. This judge has no control over his courtroom, his emotions, or his ability to see past his bias towards women or their attorney's.

This judge has repeatedly committed violations against litigants rights to due process, violated judicial ethics, and has done nothing but betray public confidence in our court system and its ability to uphold the laws that are set to ensure the public's well being.

Gaffney's inability to see past his own bias and his unwillingness to admit ant wrong doing, no matter how much factual evidence is presented, makes him a danger to all families and anyone he is given authority over.

The only reason Gaffney has any authority over you or your families is because the people let him. This is not how government is or ever was, supposed to be implemented. Allowing this domestic terrorist to continue to have any authority is only ensuring that this sort of behavior will continue.

There are more people than there are jail cells. There are more people than police to put them there. Something needs to change and it starts with people taking back the power and not allowing the courts or any entity thereof, go unpunished for their heinous crimes against society.

Get Gaffney off the bench.

GAFFNEY FAILS AGAIN!

This judge continuously puts women and children in danger. One of his recent rulings was remanded by an appellate court because as usual GAFFNEY WAS WRONG. Read below...

We have concluded that the trial court (Gaffney) used an incorrect legal standard in denying the DVRO. Because the court found that H.’s violations were technical, and further found that TRO violations did not constitute acts of abuse for purposes of the DVPA, it failed to make the necessary factual findings regarding the issuance of the DVRO. If all material evidence were undisputed, we would be able to determine this as a matter of law, and would order the trial court to enter the DVRO as requested. H.’s written opposition and testimony at the hearing in the trial court make this remedy impossible because we do not weigh evidence. We will therefore reverse the order denying the DVRO and remand the matter to the trial court to make the necessary findings and determine whether to issue the DVRO. If the court finds that the acts alleged by N. did, in fact, occur, then the court shall issue the DVRO

This judge isn't in charge of hisnown courtroom. The attorney's are however. Gaffney trues to play like he's the authority but that's not the case. You can call his bluff everytime. Whats the point of hsving him other then for his signature? The attorney who is being paid the most is the one who calls the shots and makes the orders. No matter if the orders hurt children and their families, he just signs them without a care. If you're unable to tell an attorney that what he/she and their client's are doing is detrimental to children and their families, get off the bench. There are more cowards in family law and the lawyers can tell from a mile away. If you were given a job, do it the absolute best way possible, don't walk all over it like the attorney's walk over you.

I have no experience with Judge Gaffney in civil court. In the criminal setting, Judge Gaffney is extremely fair. He is not a yes man for the prosecution and he carefully weighs the evidence and makes a well reasoned determination supported by the evidence. He will tell it like it is and call you out on positions that are untenable. I have tried jury trials and pretrial motions in his courtroom. I think you could not find better.

Doesn't matter if you file 170.1 or 170.6 papers against Gaffney. He answers them. What do you think a judge who has shown nothing but bias towards one party in his courtroom and wants to cover it up is going to say in a response? Oh yes I am a total idiot who hates women and wants nothing more than to hurt their kids because how dare they have a better childhood than I ever did? No, they are going to lie and say of course I have no bias against whomever, this was taken out of context... blah blah blah. That's why the 170.1 and 170.6 are to be reviwed by a peer. That way if bias is an issue or there is an issue at all, the judge filed against can't stay on. However, Gaffney can answer his own and do it without being properly served. Isn't that wonderful? Must be a new policy aimed at being more efficient in destroying families and hurting their children.

Judge Donald Gaffney, does not care. Literally he said in 1 single case, "I DO NOT CARE," about 20 times. Apparently, he went from criminal law to family law and he treats the fathers like convicted murderers. He has made it evident that he does not want to be there. He only wants to go to the very top, so he is here because it looks good on his resume. He is power-hungry, speaks in jargon to sound intellectual and every decision he makes is politicized and he does not make decisions based on what is best for the fathers or mothers... it is what is for the best of his political career. I heard this from two lawyers, so apparently this is well known. These OC Judges send parents to these government programs, so they can get "paid." Notice every time you go to court and every time you get out of court you are paying more money and fees.
Ask Judge Gaffney if he cares?
Judge Gaffney does not care about anything... except for power and exhibiting his authority over others.

I would think that there would be some law prohibiting one from doing such, right? " Then goes ahead and makes life altering decisions for most of all litigants being seen before him, based off of just guess work! I mean come on already people, wake up and smell the crap that's cooking and that your being fed & eating too! Unless your content with a judge who obviously doesn't read everything let alone anything that comes across his desk while falling asleep as testimonies are being given or rather getting his sick & twisted jollies off by emotionally terrorizing WOMAN/MOTHERS or better yet his favorite WHITE WOMAN/DESTRAUGHT MOTHERS! Which makes no sense when you realize that his daddy broke his nose when he was just a boy while being abusive just in general, and his mother being the one to take he and his siblings away from said abuse and putting him in a safer more stable environment, which led him to achieve what he has today! Hmmm?...yup..i don't get it neither!

Judge seems to be fair. He listens to both sides. However he has no tolerance for lies, bs made up accusations, and especially no tolerance for ppl who completely disregard his rulings and any motions he sets in place. Of he makes an order he expects you to comply. Sounds resonable to me. Apparently these ppl complaining are not following orders, laws, judgements and so forth. Pretty sure that's how their kids are removed. Not to mention their posts are at 2am and such. Hmm, under the influence of something???? Another reason a child would be removed. For their own well-being. These mom compliant parents should seek drug counseling. Or maybe that was the order they ignored. Overall he's a fair judge. Maybe not polite, but fair. Stop blaming the judge and take responsibility for your own actions. Be a role model to these kids
